Are they actually human? If so, that should be made big and bold on the page (I just accidentally sacrificed one, which upset my god, though killing it in the first place didn't...)--Preceding unsigned comment added by Enehta (talkcontribs)

Yes, they're human. You get dinged for murder only for killing a peaceful human, and it's sacrificing your own race rather than humans specifically that makes Bad Things happen at altars.--Ray Chason 18:26, 8 December 2007 (UTC)

For some reason when I polymorph and return to my Doppelganger form my Total HP on that form gets reduced is this normal? (I have been morphing in Umber Hulks if that helps).

Should this page...

Be renamed to something like Doppelganger (monster) since there is now a article for the playable race. --Maha Bufu 22:09, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

No. This wiki is primarily about vanilla NetHack, so the unqualified title “Doppelganger” should refer to what it means in vanilla.
I've added a disambiguation link to the top of the page, though. Making “Doppelganger”a proper disambiguation page wouldn't help SLASH'EM players, and it would inconvenience vanilla players, so I don't think it should happen. -- Killian 01:44, 18 April 2009 (UTC)
