[RFE] Make Mummy Wrapping turn the character visible.

If you have acquired permanent invisibility intrinsic, currently there is no way to negate it for an extensive period of time (short of a pool), which makes it impossible to complete Arena quest.
One of the classic solutions for an invisible man is to completely cover himself in bandages, which makes one look a bit like a mummy.
It would be cool if that worked in ADOM, too.

If you mean a regular mummy wrapping but excluding the AMW, this sounds like a funny enough idea. :)

I think maybe just adding a scroll of visibility that made every creature in the area visible for some time (like an area of effect potion of visibility) could be helpful. At least that way there are 2 random items that make you visible.

Nice. It would also let you make use of a completely useless item.

This is an amazing suggestion and thematically proper I think. You have my vote.

Nice idea! Voted.

Haha, this is very cool, I like it. Plus, it has a guaranteed way to get visibility if you desperately need it.

Well, it makes sense thematically, but shouldn't permanent invisibility have at least one negative effect? (balance point of view)?
Realism suffers as well - why other clother wouldn't make characters visible too?

Realism and Adom aren't exactly the best of buddies anyway.

I think the negative effect is still there - if you are willing to remove your real armour and replace it with a [-2, 0] mummy wrapping instead, then you're rather desperate. :)

Who cares. You need it only to get to the Arena. Once there, wear whatever you want.

What's your point? Yeah, that's the most common place - among very few - where invisibility even has a negative effect. Obviously the need for a mummy wrapping is also quite rare and sporadic.

A couple other cases spring to mind where invisibility is a bad thing, such as

I always keep a bag of flour in my kitchen just in case I should ever turn invisible.

Harkila conidered [-2, 0] on the wrapping as a negative effect but it doesn't really matter if the wrapping will have the anti-invisibility effect. That's my point.

In any case I think that this would be a clever trick that will make a game more fun.

What would the reasoning be for the ancient mummy wrapping to leave invisibility as it is? Or should it also deactivate invisibility?

For now the standard mummy wrapping negates invisibility.

Mainly gameplay ones - AMW is an important and useful artifact armor/quest reward that grants hard-to-get-otherwise cold immunity, so tinkering with it needs very careful consideration - it can greatly affect difficulty of areas like Ice Queen Domain, and of cold-using monsters.
Ordinary mummy wrapping, being near useless, doesn't have this problem, and negating player's invisibility is not something that makes him more powerful so that change can be made without much worry.

Although, there was that thread about tinkering with quest rewards, making AMW negate invisibility would be an excellent nerf.

My vote for it! AMW good without invisibility.

On the one hand, it would be a sensible nerf for the AMW.

On the other hand, it would make standard mummy wrappings totally useless again, because again everything a standard mummy wrapping can do would be done better by the AMW.

So while I love the idea of making standard mummy wrappings negate invisibility, I'm not so sure the AMW should as well.

I think AMW does not need further nerfs. It's already pretty low on PV, and by the time you get it, you have usually found some adamantium stuff already. Also, as Ap nowadays plays a role in corruptions, Ap-8 makes you consider twice before using it for a longer time. It's IMHO very balanced as-is.
