*** There is more than one way to start with three or more talents. The maximum number is ''six'' talents, for which you have to be a hurthling or gnome farmer, bard or merchant with 17+ Mana, Candle or Falcon as starsign, and some completely unrelated luck (you get a bonus talent if the sum total of your stats is divisible by 7). This would allow you to get Treasure Hunter and the truly game-breaking seven-league boots, at level 1. Yet - while gunning for extra talents is one aspect of min-maxing, it rarely does more than make the start a little bit easier. Also, while in this particular case you maxed the crap out of your running speed, you sadly happened to min your combat prowess.

** And the "Heir" talent, a hard-to-qualify-for 1st level talent that starts you off with a magic item dependent on your class. These range from specialized armor and awesome wands to the near-essential SprintShoes: Seven League Boots. Very ''very'' useful for getting places before Bad Things Happen.

The Dev Team Thinks Of Everything is now Developers Foresight. Removed all non-illustrative or unclear examples as well as ZCE's and switched over all demonstrative examples.
* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Has its [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything/AncientDomainsOfMystery own page]] from the sheer prevalence of this trope.

* TheManyDeathsOfYou: Overlaps with TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything. Kicking a stairway can cause the entire level to collapse, resulting in instant death. Kicking an empty space or wall causes damage to the PC, and this damage can kill you if you're trying hard enough to do it. Doomed [=PC=]s have something on the order of a 1-in-50 chance per turn of being [[DarknessEqualsDeath eaten by a grue if they're in a dark space]]. The list goes on, and on, and on.

* ActionBomb: All the flavours of [[GoddamnBats vortices]] attack by exploding into a massive ball of acid/fire/etc, if their target is in melee range. This is as unhealthy as it sounds. [[spoiler:They can't explode in the dark in 1.1.1.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: You can use a whip in the tool slot to self-flagellate for a small Lawful alignment shift (at the cost of minor injury). Stethoscopes can reveal the basic stats of an NPC. ** These are just a fraction of the sheer prevalence of this trope. If you played the game for years and think you have seen and thought of everything, you are wrong. ** Can't resist one example: most players risk being bitten by swarms of tiny spiders if they are trapped in a [[GiantSpider giant spiderweb]]. If you're a Dark Elf, however, "You welcome your spidery friends." ** Has its [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything.{{ADOM}} own page]].
