Talk:Food poisoning

I moved some SLASH'EM text to its own section. We should maintain a clean separation of NetHack content from SLASH'EM content: we can talk about the two games on the same page, but we shouldn't talk about them in the same paragraph.

How many turns to live does one get upon being food poisoned? --Gneek 04:38, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
I don't know the formula or anything but it's been about 4 or 5 in my experience. When I'm nice and early with no Unicorn Horn I get FoodPoi, pray (god gets pissed 'cause I recently prayed for food), quaff 3 or 4 unIDed potions in the futile hope that one of them will help, then die. Unless this is raised in SLASH'EM I don't see how you can get to a toilet with any reliability (unless every level has like 3 bathrooms). DemonDoll 19:38, 22 May 2009 (UTC)

why i can't eat - (finger) to vomit after beeing food poisoned?

this would make sense

cure: failing to polymorph

Somebody keeps this gem of wisdom to the article:

  • polymorphing into a new version of yourself,a sickness-resistant monster, or failing to polymorph yourself.

Either you fail to polyself, i. e. you fail to cast the spell, resist the polytrap, or fatfinger the command. Then nothing happens at all. Or you do polymorph, but stay the same creature. This is a new version of yourself (and does cure poisoning), and it is already covered in this very line.

Anonymous contributor, if you want your change to stay in the article, then make clear which of these you mean. And if you really mean "fail", then provide some hard evidence it works. -Tjr 01:14, February 12, 2010 (UTC)
