The Mall is a special level that appears in SLASH'EM and SlashTHEM. It contains many shops and various animals as well as a watch, much like Minetown.

Generation

The Mall has a 34 chance of being generated, and will be located on level 5 or 6 of the Dungeons of Doom.

It consists of a normal room-and-corridor level with four normal rooms and a large shopping-area room.

Maps

There are two possible maps for the layout of the main shopping area.[1][2] Both versions populate the mall with four watchmen, three watch captains, four muggers, and two sewer rats; the first variant will also have a kitten, while the second will have a little dog.

Both maps for the main room have the same chance of generating each type of shop:

  1. 100% chance of a general store
  2. 20% chance of a tool shop
  3. 40% chance of a food shop
  4. 20% chance of a scroll shop
  5. 30% chance of a potion shop
  6. 12% chance of a ring shop
  7. 33% chance of a lighting shop
  8. 12% chance of a book shop
  9. 17% chance of a wand shop
  10. 20% chance of a weapon shop
  11. 22% chance of an armor shop

Variant 1

(+ marks walls where shop doors will spawn and the letters mark shops as listed above.)
