has anyone seen that: "mysterious force prevents you descending." bug or feature?

the level -- pelias's castle. i went downlevel and needed to return for my dog. the game would not let me downstairs anymore. if you have an answer, please let me know. thank you, -toly

You atempted to descent without the Permission of the Quest-Leader. What You have to do is reaching level 14, and then talk to your Quest-Leader. Note, despite in this Wiki, mysterious Force is used as a therm for the mysterious force that teleports you down, while leaving gehennom, nethack has several mysterious forces. You probably heard of the mysterious force, that prevents you (or nymphs unicorns,...) from teleporting in Sokoban ? There are other cases there fans use different terms than the dev team. For Example the Intervention (in WIZARD.C) is called Harrassment or Objects are called Items. -- 21:19, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
