Forum:Really? No candles?

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

It started as in the movies: my little dog fetched a wand of wishing at level 2, hop! dragon suite, grayswandir and a sceptre of might.

A well endowed Samurai!

But poor Izhtzak only had 3 candles.

I realized the "candle situation" when I was about to take Rodney: I did not think about saving a wish from the wand in the castle.

So I searched up and down again, polypiled all the tools I could get my hands on to oblivion.

Then I gave up...

That can happen, and it sucks especially if you're doing a conduct game where it's impossible to make more candles. (You can wish for candles (castle wand etc), polypile tools, get them from death drops (pudding farm ...), or find ones on the floor that were randomly generated along with the level.) Some variants fix this: Slashem has wax golems, Spork makes more candles in Izchak's, Acehack gives gnomes some randon candles, and I forgot about Unnethack. --Tjr (talk) 04:47, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
UnNetHack has wax golems and gives gnomes candles. --Tungtn (talk)
Aren't there also guaranteed candles in (most?) Big Room layouts in UnNetHack?

Yes, in all big rooms. --Bhaak (talk) 06:58, 24 July 2013 (UTC)
