AoY Container

NameAoY Container v1.0
Rating60%
AuthorTopi Linkala
ForNetHack 3.4.3
DescriptionAllows the insertion of Amulet of Yendor, Candelabrum of Invocation, Bell of Opening and Book of Dead into a container.
 Also prevents naming these items.

Naming of Amulet of Yendor or unknown fake is a major insult against your original god and minor insult if your god is not the original one. Naming of known fake Amulets are permitted.

If you carry a container containg one of those items or your Quest Artifact everything should work as if they were in your inventory, except you wont get the benefits from your Quest Artifact.

When a monster has in its inventory a container containing one of those five items and has nothing better to do, then it will take the most valued item out of that container and if that container contains no other valued items drop it.

Pet won't pick up a container that contains the Amulet of Yendor.

Btw. If you wonder why I made this patch the reason was that checking if you have the real AoY and keeping track of it is IMHO too easy in 3.4.3. When you get the amulet you try to put it in a container and if it won't go in it's real and you can then name it "real". This patch is made so that you cannot do that anymore.


My solution to this was to add another amulet of yendor that's functionally identical, but won't take you to the planes or be sacrificed at a high altar. Once my variant goes live, it will be a source of vexation[Quote]

That's not true. All invocation items and real AoY are safe from BoH explosion. Where they end as a result of such extradimensional explosion is anybody's guess, but the Oracle is known for her capability to answer questions.[Quote]

Not being able to name the amulet is an interesting downside factor, but, in all, I think this just removes a complication for the player. You even protect them from destroying the bag of holding![Quote]

You'll notice that if you destroy a container with an invocation item, the item is teleported to the Oracle level.[Quote]

The problem with that is that the invocations items can be destroyed, e.g. you have the Amulet in a BoH and you put a /oCcl inside...
Furthermore, the Bell of Opening should never been contained in a container (it "opens" it)[Quote]
