Is there something special about wizard called Newt, who you can find there? I looted an athame and 6 wands out of him... 18:58, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Newt (A prisoner) can have an Athame, so it's always worth killling him.

OTOH, 6 wands? You lucky bastard! Are you sure about that?

Getting Neferet off the throne

Is there a way to (peacefully) get Neferet off the throne before showing her the Amulet or perhaps even before getting quest permission? -Tjr 06:53, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

You can #chat with her after getting quest permission. Tjr 17:34, August 28, 2010 (UTC)
Even before permission, you can either use a free turn or have a monster throw paralysis at her to walk adjacent without getting kicked out immediatley. Then, you can either #chat to her or answer no at "do you really want to attack" to wake her up. The latter doesn't even use in-game time. --Tjr 16:06, 8 June 2011 (UTC)


The Wizard quest levels resemble the layout of dungeons of doom. What I am wondering is ,is it possible that Vaults are generated in theese levels ? And if yes, can guards appear an and can they contain the portal to ford ludious if not generatet yet ? I remember to never have found one, but this may be coincidence since there are only 2-4 filler levels -- 16:07, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

No vaults, no shops/temples/throne rooms/etc. The quests run through a different code path. --Tjr (talk) 16:39, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

Tower of Darkness Secret Door Locations in 3.6.0

It looks like the secret door locations for the Tower of Darkness level may have been randomized/moved in 3.6.0. Here is a screenshot showing the locations differing from the current illustration:


I'll confirm the randomization of the secret doors. Here's another screenshot:
