I missed a question on the #dnethack irc channel:
[13:15] <tedav> Chris_ANG: what are you thinking for cursed scroll of warding, or confused behavior for either type of scroll?
Cursed scroll of warding: "A ripple of dark energy spreads out across the [surface]" and all wards on the level are erased.
Confused scroll of warding: Scribes a random ward, probably one that you DON'T already know, since the non-confused behavior is to scribe a CHOSEN ward that you DO know.
Hallucinating scroll of warding: "A ripple of [random color] energy spreads out across the [surface]" and all wards on the level become hallucinatory wards.
Confused scroll of ward: Scares adjacent monsters (the scroll warded off the monsters, rather than drawing a ward).
Hallucinating scroll of ward: Draws a hallucinatory ward.
since the Noble role gets gender-specific starting equipment, shouldn't there be some bonus/penalty for cross-gender use? perhaps for the male characters in the underwear a +1 to hit with axes? --18.104.22.168 12:57, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
lol. Magic chests originated in DynaHack, and are magic containers that share their contents with each other. In dNethack, magic chests are tools, rather than dungeon features, and have 10 compartments to aid in stash organization. Use a key or lockpick to switch between compartments. So, for example, if you put your spare potions in the lock 1 compartment of the Sokoban chest, then travel to Vlad's Tower and look in the lock 1 compartment of that magic chest, you will find your spare potions inside. Magic chests are wishable; however, the chests are emptied out when you go to the Planes, so you can't access your stash in the endgame by wishing for one. --Chris (talk) 18:37, 27 February 2016 (UTC)
