Blink is a technique for hobbits in SLASH'EM. It slows down the turn counter for rnd(TECHLEVEL+1)+2 time. The technique can be used again after 500-1499 turns.

While the technique is in use, you have an effective speed of 24 if you have normal speed, 28 if you are fast, or 30 if you are very fast.

Message

You feel the flow of time slow down
You activated the technique.
You sense the flow of time returning to normal
The technique has expired. The turn counter has returned to normal.

Strategy

In the early game, the Blink technique only lasts for a couple of game turns. Because of this, you should only use it when you are close to a monster that you may have trouble with. You can also use it to throw more daggers or cast more spells before the monster can reach you.
