Talk:Special level (SLASH'EM)

Jump to: navigation, search

Right now it says that all random monsters in the Mall level are either @ or r. Does that refer to wandering monsters randomly generated on that level? That doesn't sound right; I'm sure I've seen all kinds of monsters on that level.

The kobold level is randomly generated, but I'm not quite sure what its chances are. It is sometimes a standard room and corridor level with Kroo in a large room and sometimes a unique map. It might be worth pointing out on this page that there are three different categories of special level here: those accessed by portal (the three alignment quests, Sam's black market), those accessed by separate staircase (spiders, sunless sea, lost tomb, Moloch's sanctum, giant caverns, wyrm caverns, Grund's fortress), and those that modify or replace a standard level that must be passed through (rat king, Aphrodite, kobold lair, Guild of Disgruntled adventurers, storage room).Ih fek 19:49, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

Mall - guaranteed shop

Right now it says that the Mall is guaranteed to have one random shop. I've seen many malls where there is a single shop. However it's always been a general store. So, is the guaranteed shop truly random or always a general shop?

Answering my own question. Apparently in an older version the general store had a 20% chance of spawning, and no other guaranteed random shops. --AileTheAlien 02:15, 23 July 2011 (UTC)

Grund's Stronghold

What the article claims to be in the chests does not seem necessarily true, in the lower secret chest, the tins I found contained quantum mechanic and something unfamiliar, not spinach. And there were 3, and not 4 blessed potions of enlightenment in the top one. 08:29, September 21, 2009 (UTC)

Special levels out of date?

I'm not sure how up-to-date the special level spoilers are; in addition to the note above about Grund's stronghold, on the Lawful Quest I only found three Spice Girls (the (master) mind flayers in the center of the cloud bank), and there also seemed to be fewer rot worms and @s than promised.--Slandor 10:15, September 22, 2009 (UTC)

Special level item/monster chances

This page seems to simply have missed a lot of the chances for items and monsters being generated; they're all findable at this site, with that one being for Grund's Stronghold (look to the side for the other levels). I'll go and start changing some of that over the next few days. -Ion frigate 03:24, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Kobold level

What's the probability of the kobold level existing? It's definitely not 100%. 21:14, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

50% --paxed 21:40, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
Also, the Wyrm caves don't seem to be guaranteed. 13:41, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

A less "greedy" page

Not all of these special levels are unique to SLASH'EM anymore.

For example, the Black Market and the Nymph Level also exist in UnNetHack, and thus those pages should no longer automatically redirect here.
