Caveman at the Plane of Air is having difficulty moving. I get the message "It's hard to walk on thin air," even though I have both flight and levitation. I tried both individually to see if there was some sort of conflict between the two, but no dice.

Seems like a bug indeed. @Janne Gustafsson can probably fix it. And hopefully not break the wizard quest or the secret modron plane at the same time (they have also some air).

Hi, it looks like some parentheses were not quite right in the code. In any case, I fixed the issue, and released the Hot Fix 2, so you can continue playing. Thanks for the bug report.

Hi, this is a bug, with C(0) and C(p) conflicting in Unix (but not in Windows). The issue has now been fixed, and will be effective in the next pre-alpha version (to be released roughly in a month's time). In the meanwhile, you can use prevmsg extended command.

Hello, playing via ssh on hardfought -> ssh [email protected], as user arnibald. I recently obtained the castle wand of wishing (0:1). I used the single charge to wish for a blessed magic marker (need identifies and enchant weapons and armors - I have some chargings and other plans for the recharged wand). However, when I try to apply the marker, it tells me "you don't have anything to write on." whether I have blank scrolls in inventory or on the ground. I don't know if the scrolls were generated blank, or they blanked inside my bag of treasure hauling during the 'swimming' incident. I've tried with spellbooks in inventory too, in case markers are now only for spellbooks.

I've encountered this situation, too, and it is because your blank scrolls are unidentified. You cannot write on unidentified blank scrolls.

We have fixed this issue now so that the game informs the player that you cannot write on unidentified scrolls of blank paper in a situation like what you encountered.
