This is a pine wand you found in the Dungeons of Doom. It's just about the only thing IN the Dungeons of Doom that looks anything like what it's supposed to be. Remember: you can zap your friends, and you can zap your nose, but you probably shouldn't zap your familiar. It might turn into a newt.
(In-game plural: pine wands)
- dead mimic (conditionally)
- Allows you to zap items.
- May explode when zapping items. Another can be obtained three days later.
- This refers to the old joke: "You can pick your friends, and you can pick your nose, but don't pick your friend's nose."
- Turning things into newts is something that wielders of magic are typically shown to do. In NetHack, zapping your pet with a wand of polymorph in the hopes of turning it into something better might also result in your pet becoming something weaker; a newt, for instance.
