If I were to give a pet Centaur a Helm of opposite alignment, could it equip a Lawful artifact? Specifically, I think it would be neat to have a Centaur with the Sunsword, sort of like having headlights on a mount. Floatingeye 04:23, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

I can't find the code that says that a chaotic monster can't wield a lawful weapon (although I also haven't gotten them do do it). Anyway, the Helm of Opposite Alignment doesn't change the alignment of monsters. Mniot 05:25, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
Aww, darn. Thanks - I enchanted one to +7 and I couldn't for the life of me get my mountain centaur to pick it up, even after I stole his weapon with a bullwhip. It is cool someone else thought to try it. I doubt it would be successful with a plains centaur, with its slightly higher alignment? Floatingeye 08:00, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Centaurs and amulets of flying (which are in 3.7.0)

3.7.0 also has an amulet of flying; the advice is therefore applicable to upcoming vanilla (plus UnNetHack and SLICE'EM). Ardub23, will you put back a modified form of the text, or should I? -Actual-nh (talk) 04:52, 18 June 2021 (UTC)

I'll do it - was contemplating the same myself. --Umbire the Phantom (talk) 04:55, 18 June 2021 (UTC)
