Forum:Arch-lich in wizard quest?
Ugh. Best character so far in iNethack on my iPod Touch. Level 15 Wizard, 3 separate stashes of goodness. No co-aligned altars yet, though.
I get to the first level of the Dark Tower in the Wizard Quest, and three or four steps away from the stairs, an arch-lich and two tengu teleport in next to me, with the arch-lich between me and the stairs, of course. I have teleport control, but no WoT, SoT, or RoT. :( Undiggable floor, no turn undead, no cockatrice corpse (do have gloves, though!).
Looked up liches in the wiki and arch-lich is only supposed to appear only in Gehennom? How'd I get so lucky? Did a tengu step on a polymorph trap?
Poor Belch the Enchanter.
Generally speaking, the only way that could happen normally is if a lich or demilich grew up, but since you didn't spend very much time there it was likely a polymorph trap, yeah. ——Aitherion (talk) 05:57, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
