    Maybe the axe quest is from the kit tome mod? I had it in my last install.

    @Wise_Grimwald Droth only shows up if you let Shoal kill a party member, hit her once or twice to make her give up, then say you will try to get her shawl from Droth. If you kill her outright, you just get the experience - which is sizable at low levels though, so quite worth it then.

    @Corey_Russell She did. She killed Xzar. Normally I wait for her to give up, fight Droth and then kill Shoal.
    However on this occasion she didn't give up. I suspect that it might have been because the first hits were from some summoned skeletons.

    I never use summons (against Shoal), and usually only have a single character attack her. Summons get in the way with Shoal, as they aren't as good as party members in backing off a target. Which often means she doesn't get a chance to talk, or she's trying to talk and a late summon hit makes her hostile, losing the opportunity.

    Thanks. I've learned something there.

    I forgot to mention, I also make sure one party member is in melee range, to guarantee that I am also in talking range, that way the moment she is ready to give up I will see the dialog. Before I did this, I killed her as she was approaching to try to talk...

    @Gate70 Why no portrait for Sapper? Is it something to do with multiplayer?

    @Wise_Grimwald just us being lazy about sharing portraits between installations - this is Sapper as he appears on my screen

    I can understand why. Getting the same portrait images is a bit complex I think.

    Sapper looks good.

    That quote is just so awesome. Since I myself am a librarian, I started to quote Finch at work. Nobody seems to understand. Don't care, this awesomeness is all mine !! B)

    The 2-handed pen is mightier than the sword?

    Yeah, and it's much easier to write with !

    It occurs to me that we haven't compiled a ranked list of common causes that is the bane of charnames for noreloaders to benefit in posterity.

    Here are some of my own most common charname killers:

    - Stinginess ("Oh, I don't need to waste a potion, I'll just wait till the Cleric gets here.")

    - Foolhardiness ("Yeah, maybe I should run with two people down, but look at the loot I would be leaving behind.")

    - Restartitis ("This Dragon Disciple is fine and good, but she cannot even lift a shield. What I really should be running is a Dwarwen Defender.")

    How do you usually lose *your* charname?

    If I lose my charname, it's usually to difficult fights, such as Sarevok, Draconis, Ravager, or Melissan.

    As I normally play solo, unknown traps are a huge danger

    I try not to meta-game. That means memorizing (or acting as if memorized) trap locations is not allowed. Combine that with how I never play thieves, solo is basically never allowed to me.

    One of these days maybe I'll try a FMT for a change...

    "I'll just play a little longer" is what kills me. That and not being methodical enough to put together a counter to all enemy attacks - what they call the ascension kit in some roguelikes.

    I find playing in an unheroic style puts me off a little, so if I'm playing super-defensive I go the whole way and RP manipulative evil types.

    Oh, god.... Nethack...

    After a year's study and YASDs, the farthest I ever got was to *see* the pulsating square.

    (Now that I reflect on it, my entire RPG career had been but yearnings.)
