Levelport and Luck

Doesn't the chance you can't control levelport depend on Luck? --Tjr 14:11, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

You're right, I didn't notice it was rnl. Noted. --Ilmari Karonen 15:10, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

scroll of create monster

doesn't this do something different if you're confused? is this a risk or a benefit? --195.50.80.61 12:22, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
"When reading scrolls, you will mispronounce the magic words, which will cause effects different from what would occur normally." --Tjr 12:54, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
the page lists harmful or useful effects. my question was whether create monster would fall into either of these categories. it certainly isn't something you would guess would happen. should the page also list the trivial effects, for completeness sake? --195.50.80.61 13:02, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
I'm not sure. It gets pretty corner-casey if you try to list everything. For example, confused fire is good to unslime yourself, confused light is great if you want to avoid pole-arm accidents while death farming, confused create monster is an excellent way to preempt the dangerous hordes on the Astral Plane, and confused remove curse can really ruin your day if you mis-IDd the scroll. Most of the confused effects belong firmly in the category "wasting resources", however. Attempting to give a balanced and exhaustive overview what confusion can do would risk making it hard to scan through irrelevenat information, and the material would have to be organized differently. --Tjr 13:44, 15 December 2010 (UTC)
