In case someone's interested, I have released the source and updated the game with an icon for the torch. (+ a small draw depth fix.)
JTR, unfortunately your score link seems down and the source vanished somehow? Time passes.
Once I've seen a similar game at the old .NL forum and it had such effects as 'drunk'- moved like one,'confused' - random moves and acts ,'wounded&tired' - the speed gets slower, 'afraid' - moving ahead slow but away (from the source) was double time, 'blinded' - blurring, 'clubbed' - cannot move for a while, 'dread' - the player drops his items on hands and runs opposite direction, etc.
Wasn't it yours? Ok, but depending on the load and condition/ effects the player should 'eat' from 1/4 to 2 of the ration IMO.P.S.
I was turned into slime, lost all equip, ran away with 1 HP and 17 FOOD and YET died with HP=0/8 (of 16) DMG=11 DEF=17 DEPTH=12 KILLS=128 $2578
