Berserk Rage

I didn't notice this mentioned, so I thought I'd throw it in since bugs appear to be getting fixed. There are two bugs related to the "monster going in a berserk rage" mechanic.

The first is that the monster will apparently choose a random target to attack, which can sometimes be itself. When this happens, the monster will promptly commit suicide, producing a rather amusing message "The -foo- goes into a blind rage. The -foo- attacks the -foo-! The -foo- is killed! The -foo- suddenly looks more power."

Ordinarily, this is mostly just an amusement, although it can be annoying if it triggers on quest monsters (Kranach, for example), since this will mean that the PC will be denied the reward for completing the quest.

The second bug results if this effect happens to a pet. This results in a very, very, annoying situation, where the game will repeatedly save and quit, right away. If you're lucky, you can maybe get 1 step, and then it will save and quit again. This will persist until the pet dies, the PC leaves the level, or the player quits in frustration.

Thanks, JellySlayer. I think this is more a less a duplicate of your bug report http://www.adom.de/forums/project.php?issueid=109 :)

Berserking monsters don't kill themselves any more.

Heh, I found that glitch while playing 1.1.1 a few days ago...

"You splatter Kherab, the dwarven artificer and severely wound him. Kherab, the dwarven artificer regenerates. Kherab, the dwarven artificer decides to fight to the death in a blind rage! Kherab, the dwarven artificer attacks Kherab, the dwarven artificer. Kherab, the dwarven artificer is killed! Kherab, the dwarven artificer suddenly looks more powerful."

Oh, I know. Just relaying a related anecdote that I found humorous.

Haha, exactly. Wasn't sure whether to laugh or be pissed.

The best variation of that bug was when dopplegangers attacked themselves. "The doppleganger attacks the doppleganger. The doppleganger suddenly looks like the doppleganger! The doppleganger seems to be confused."

Heh, I think everyone can agree that the doppleganger was *very* confused indeed...
