imitation of the
Amulet of Yendor
|Appearance||Amulet of Yendor|
The cheap plastic imitation of the Amulet of Yendor (CPIoAoY) is an amulet that exists solely to confuse you. It has a 50% chance of being generated on the Rogue level  (this one will be pre-identified as a fake), a 50% chance of being in the inventory of a double-troubled Wizard of Yendor when you don't have the amulet (0% when you do) , and player monsters on the Astral plane all carry one  (that's why they're stuck there). Wishing for the Amulet of Yendor also gives you the plastic imitation. Every CPIoAoY initially displays as an "Amulet of Yendor", and must be individually identified to reveal its true nature.
If the real Amulet is left in a bones file, it gets converted to a fake amulet when the file is loaded .
