Has Barney the Dinosaur ever been spotted by anyone in a non-hallucinatory state?

Barney exists in some variants of Angband. --Kernigh 03:03, 1 July 2006 (UTC)

Uses for hallucination?

So are there any other practical uses for hallucination than being safe from the touch of death? I don't think so? --ZeroOne 21:13, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Eating a mimic corpse in Slash'em while hallucinating made me mimic an orange (Urban Legend reference). Is the item you mimic random or is it allways orange?I'll try to spade this. MVH, Loof

Update, I was afraid of being peeled and transformed back, so it appear to allways be orange. MVH, Same as Before.

hen you're hallucinating and eating a mimic, yes, you'll always be mimicking an orange. This gives a funny message in a vault. Otherwise, it'll be some gold. 82.66.91.156 12:54, September 19, 2009 (UTC)

Are the uses for hallucination accurate? I just tried it in wizard mode. A scroll of food detection detected two pieces of food near me, distorted by hallucination, and no other objects. A scroll of gold detection detected gold in the wall, again distorted, and no other objects. A potion of object detection always detects all objects, regardless of hallucination. There does appear to be code to allow a detection to detect everything if you're hallucinating, but it seems to only be called by the crystal ball, and you can't use a crystal ball while hallucinating. Could someone verify the claims? -- Qazmlpok 21:55, June 2, 2010 (UTC)
