Valley of the Dead is located immediately below the Castle. You either must drop here via a trap door from the Castle, or teleport with controlled level teleport. The level layout is always the same. Somewhere near the lower right is a staircase which will lead back up to the Castle.

This level contains several graveyards, and a temple of Moloch, with attending priest. The entrance to Gehennom is behind a secret door, accessible via the temple. The Valley of the Dead is considered part of Gehennom for prayer purposes and prayer will anger your deity.

Map Edit

The layout of the Valley is fixed:

Description Edit

If you arrive by falling or jumping through a Castle trapdoor, you will land within a few squares of the upstair. The unaligned temple on the left is manned by a peaceful priest of Moloch. In addition to the inhabitants of the three marked graveyards, the level also contains six ghosts, three vampire bats, four random mummies, four random zombies, three random vampires, and a random lich. In addition to the boxes in the graveyards, there are four random pieces of armour, four random weapons, three random potions, three random scrolls, two random wands, two random rings, two random spellbooks, three random tools, a ruby, and two other random gems; in addition to the corpses in the graveyards, there are two other corpses of each character class save Monks and Priests. The marked traps: in the top left corridor are two spiked pits and a sleeping gas trap, as you go from the temple to the downstair; the trap in the centre-left is a squeaky board; the other two are dart traps; there are a further two magic traps and two anti-magic traps randomly located.

The entire level has undiggable walls and floor. Attempting to cast a spell of magic mapping ("Your head spins as something blocks the spell.") or reading a scroll of magic mapping ("Your mind is filled with crazy lines. Your head spins in bewilderment.") will result in confusion.

SLASH'EMEdit

As opposed to vanilla, the level is magic mappable, and teleport is allowed. The priest of Moloch is hostile and cannot be pacified, protection therefore can not be bought.
