Otherwise: "The Eye looks around with its icy gaze!" All monsters within sight wich are not undead get their HP lowered to 1/3. (but not lower than to 1HP) "The <foo> screams in agony!" Then your alignment and luck are lowered by 3! in: invisibility the bell: If You aren't underwater: If You are swallowed: If the BoO isn't cursed: You are released. Elsif The bell is cursed: (level_difficulty() + 1)/10 + d5 undead are created. Elsif on the Vibrating square: "The Bell of Opening issues an unsettling shrill sound..." You have completed one of the three tasks required for "opening" the square. Of course, the bell opens stuff. level_difficulty(): If in endgame: = sanctumlevel + XPlev/2 Else: If you have the Amulet: = deepest lev. reached by U Else: = dungeon level you're on. raise dead: "You turn the pages of the Book of the Dead..." If you're on the Vibrating square AND: None of Book,Bell or Candelabrum are cursed, the Candelabrum is lit and the Bell is recently rung: You "open" the stairs to the sanctum. When you read the Book of the Dead without being on the vibrating square, it still has some specials... If the Book is cursed: "You raised the dead!" There is a 1/3 chance of a Master Lich or Nalfeshnee being created. Then one egg/corpse from each inventory slot will be reanimated. Lastly some random undead creatures are made. (Same no. as when ringing the cursed bell) If the Book is blessed: Undead creatures within sight are made peaceful. Next to you & co-aligned: Your pet undead is made a bit more tame, and if you have same alignment a taming is attempted. Otherwise: It is made scared. If the Book is uncursed:(three possible messiages) "Your ancestors are annoyed with you!" "The headstones in the cemetery begin to move!" "Oh my! Your name appears in the book!" summon-undead: If your luck is < -9: "The Hand claws you with its icy nails!" You get d20 +4 damage! Else: "Creatures from the grave surround you!" You summon d4 +3 random tame undead monsters! Equal chances of: Vampires, Zombies, Mummies, Ghosts or Wraiths. Then your alignment and luck are decreased by 3! Sp-attacks:(Where expl. is needed) drain: +d8 Dam, will also lower maxhp with same amount and decrease Exp.Lev by one(-1) Nonaligned: Extra damage against targets of different alignment Wielded/worn or carried effects: (Where expl. is needed) end-portals: When worn in the endgame, AoY will get warmer as you close in on the magic-portal to the next level. 1/2S-Dam: Half spell damage 1/2HP-Dam: Half physical damage c: cold resistance d: drain resistance dr-Str-res: "drain strength resistance" i: intelligent luck: acts as luckstone light: lights area around you with radius of 2 mana-drain: AoY causes spells to cost more power to cast. regen: regeneration s: automatic searching se: "seeking" ->helps searching st: stealth ? artifacts of Nehwon... source:"/* KMH -- Do we really need these? */" It seems they've been removed. Too bad, "Scalpel" seemed fun :-( Atleast "Scalpel" and "Cat's claw" added something to the game, the usefulness of "Cat's Claw" is limited though. !- Can be "created" by 'N'aming an object of the same class (see col. 3) !!- Will not be randomly generated (Property of Sam :-) * Magicbane and Mjollnir are special. Description from Kevin Hugos NH-3.2.2 Spoiler: ripped totally out of context from: arti-322.txt Final version 2 for NetHack 3.2.2 Compiled by Kevin Hugo <firstname.lastname@example.org>. --*************************************************************************-- "Magicbane (neutral athame) Carried No effect. Wielded +3 to hit and +d4 damage to all monsters. May also probe, stun, scare, or purge (see section below). Confers magic resistance. Protects inventory against 95% of curses. Invoked No effect. Note: You can also engrave "Elbereth" with any noncursed athame and it won't dull the weapon. Mjollnir (neutral war hammer) Carried No effect. Wielded +5 to hit and +d24 damage against monsters that are NOT shock- resistant. Can only be thrown when you have strength 25 (such as with gauntlets of power) and you are wielding it. When thrown by Valkyries and you are not confused, stunned, blind, hallucinating, or fumbling, there is a 99% chance that the artifact will return to your hand. Can only be kicked one square. Invoked No effect. Note: Does NOT provide shock resistance! --*************************************************************************-- For the detailed description of Magicbane see arti-322.txt (by Kevin Hugo) at Sascha's site: www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/3216/ ** Occational special hit causing extra damage or death!
