I ate one of these a Valkyrie... I received the message, "Valkyrie, all your powers will be lost..." Is that just because of the acid hurting me? Aeronflux 20:23, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

Yep. Nothing special. See Hit_points#Messages -- Qazmlpok 20:35, October 11, 2009 (UTC)

two questions

  1. do they respect the e-word?
  2. will they move over boulders?

see Stash for an explanation should you need one. --195.50.80.61 12:42, 7 December 2010 (UTC)

They almost respect Elbereth, refusing to move onto the square, except that (like most monsters) they're capable of randomly spawning on top of an Elbereth. Thus, putting your stash on an Elbereth is an almost perfect, but not quite perfect, protection against gelatinous cubes. I'm not entirely sure about the boulder issue.

No, they can't move onto or spawn on top of boulders. The spare boulders in Sokoban can protect your stash. If they do spawn on your stash, they can't pick it up, but they can eat it. --Tjr 13:48, 7 December 2010 (UTC)
many thanks. so, in summary, if you can't find an ice box then pushing a boulder over your stash on a square with burned elbereth will ensure your stash is there when you get back? --195.50.80.61 12:14, 8 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes. I usually prefer a third solution: I leave the level before a gelatinous cube can spawn. --Tjr 12:19, 8 December 2010 (UTC)

more questions

  1. could there be moreof a discussion on the page about what gets digested and what doesn't? does stuff corrode' rust? elven weapons are made of wood, will they be digested?
  2. what are the differences for players polyed into a cube? ca you engulph and digest? does your encumbrance change? are engulphed items added to your inventory? --212.183.128.7 09:36, 20 August 2011 (UTC)
