- so. the rejection rate text seems a bit vague. i don't believe what is implied, that each turn the seahorse is rolled for but 80% of the time you get a different monster. (seahorse probability 1 in 5.) is it that (queue effect notwithstanding) the seahorse has a 1 in 4 chance of turning up but is rejected a further 4 in 5 of the time? (probability 1 in 20.) or some mixture of the two? i just spent 30 turns seeking the seahorse (yay, anecdata supporting selection bias.) which suggests the latter (rejected ordinary mob) is more likely the case. (also implied by the fact that i'd forgotten to get rid of +combat is that, like Larry of the Field of Signs, +combat plays a part.) more spading of this ten year-old stuff needed. --Evilkolbot (talk) 12:24, 16 February 2024 (UTC)
- What I know is that 'Map the Monsters' does not always have the seahorse on it's list, suggesting that the chance of it showing up changes each turn. Based on my impressions it has the same chance of showing up each turn as the other monsters but it just gets randomly removed from the monster list, which I think matches what is described.--Tombot (talk) 16:38, 16 February 2024 (UTC)
- it's clear if you know what's going on. if you're hard of thinking
*and*ignorant then it's not clear at all. only saying it's an 80% rejection isn't really that useful. it's a 5% chance. i'll think about a rewrite and then probably get distracted and forget. --Evilkolbot (talk) 09:35, 17 February 2024 (UTC)- How did you get 5%? 80 percent of the time, seahorse is not an option - you will get a different monster, or if everyone else is banished, a tumbleweed. 20 percent of the time, seahorse is an option - if everyone else is banished, you get seahorse, otherwise you might get a different monster instead. There are plenty of ways to banish in aftercore without needing to own IotMs. Semenar (talk) 14:26, 17 February 2024 (UTC)
