oh, ok, so electrum isnt actually in the game? i have to admit, ive never really looked for it.

The easter egg is that you can't make it until the Dungeon Master arrives.  Before that you just get that mildly insulting message.

Wow, I just remembered that I had this topic, I don't remember where it was but it happened kind of like when you hit a thief except it didn't show the thief

EDIT: I PMed Toady, maybe he will respond with some information. (or maybe so many other people PM him questions that he's too busy, which is easily understandable.)

Of course, why else would dwarves risk life and limb to retrive one sock during a full scale siege onslaught.
The depressing thing is that they quite often lose life and limb(s) in the process.

Smelt Electrum gives this

I don't know how I messed up so badly in typing but 'smoke electrum' gives you the same message
same with anything that causes the list to disappear so pretty much "AKDNKLADNKAN Electrum" displays that too.

Ok, so I got a reply from toady about this

It's real -- that's the message you get when you spot a kobold in ambush, but for whatever reason, the kobold was already unconscious or otherwise incapacitated.  It wouldn't be appropriate to have the "a kobold has sprung from ambush!" or whatever the regular message is in that case.  Even the "a kobold has been spotted!" (from adv mode I think) sounds a little too active.

hope that helps
