List of defunct branches and levels
The Void was a new branch that contained numerous deadly monsters, including a void dragon, and a large number of portals that link to other dungeon branches. Entering the portal which one entered the void through would not necessarily lead to the same entrance. The void could be accessed via a portal located one level above the castle. The Void was introduced before version 0.4.0, disabled in version 0.4.0, reworked and reintroduced in version 0.6.0, and removed in version 0.8.0.
This level looked like a regular dungeon level, but contained a cockatrice in one of the rooms, and a total of 20 statue traps spread throughout the level. One of the statues contained a wand of wonder. Appeared with 40% probability in levels 18–20. In version 1.0.0 the statuary special level has been replaced by the themed room of the same name.
The Icy Wastes contained a large number of cold-based monsters, including the Failure Eidolon. Useful loot included a pair of earmuffs and an orb of permafrost. This level was accessed via a portal located somewhere on levels 15–22. It was removed in version 1.0.0.
The Dark Forest was filled with an enormous number of werecreatures, including some that were unique to that level, such as a werebear, a werecockatrice, and Drauglir. The Dark Forest was the only way aside from wishing to obtain a moonstone. It was removed in version 1.0.0.
Contained a large number of dwarven revelers, and was presided over by two storm giants. Notable loot included several kegs and a large number of potions of booze. This level was accessed via an upward staircase on the level above Mines' End. It was removed in version 1.0.0 and replaced with The Bar.
The Mysterious Laboratory was the home of the Ancient Brain, and contained a small number of random potions and spellbooks. It was accessed via a downward staircase located in levels 20–24. It was removed in version 1.0.0.
