The treasury of Wizardry



In my last post, I briefly described the treasure system of Wizardry, where one of two treasure values are selected to determine your reward. This value involves another table system, but it is very badly designed, with bugs, irrelevant values, and a lot of noise in the data files, which I’ve left out of these tables.

Reward types

Rewards #0 through #9 are loose gold dropped by monsters who aren't guarding treasure chests.

Rewards #10 through #19 are the standard treasure chests.

Reward #20 is Werdna's stash on level 10.

Reward #21 is the LVL 7 Fighters' stash on level 4.

To use an example, Lvl 1 Mages have a [Reward 1] value of 1 and a [Reward 2] value of 11. Here’s the treasure sub-table representing Reward 1, which you will get if you fight a Lvl 1 Mage in a random encounter.


1

Percent Reward

100% [4d5] * 10 gold

This is fairly straightforward. It’s just a random amount of loose gold, with a minimum of 40 and a maximum of 200. It's doubled if the encounter happened in a treasure room, but there wasn't a treasure chest. The amount will be evenly distributed among all party members who are in a condition to collect gold.

It’s the Reward 2 values, which are used when you kill an enemy in a treasure room that had a treasure chest, where things get interesting, complicated, and buggy. The Lvl 1 Mage has a Reward 2 value of 11. The sub-table for reward 11 looks like this:

11 Chest [Trapless|Poison needle|Gas bomb|Type3]

Percent Reward

100% [4d5] * 10 gold

20% Item 3-17

10% Item 19-33

So first of all, this comes in a chest, as Reward2 treasures almost always do. The chest can be trapless, or have a poison needle trap, or gas bomb, or “Type3” trap, and there is an equal chance of each outcome. If “Type3” is selected, then it will either be a crossbow bolt, exploding box, splinters, blades, or stunner trap, with a 20% chance for each subtype.

Inside the chest, there are three possible treasures. The chest may contain one of them, or two of them, or all of them.

The first treasure is a gold pile, and there is a 100% chance of receiving it.

You have a 20% chance of receiving the second treasure, which will be a randomly chosen item with an index value from 3-17.

You have a 10% chance of receiving the third treasure, which will be a randomly chosen item with an index value from 19-33. Receiving it is not contingent on the outcome of the second treasure; you may receive both items, or one or the other, or you may only find the gold.

Note that whenever you receive an item, it will be randomly given to one of your conscious party members. If that character’s inventory is full, then the item will be discarded, and the game won’t even tell you that you would have gotten something! Therefore, never let any party member’s inventory get full when you are treasure hunting.

The range values are almost certainly bugged. I am almost positive that Sir-Tech meant for the ranges here to be 1-16 and 17-32. But, a badly designed range selector function causes the minimum range to be two points higher than intended, and the maximum to be one point higher than intended. Consequently, there are gaps in the treasure table, leaving some items that never appear as treasure.

In fact, every item-based treasure sub-table is similarly bugged, except for Werdna’s Amulet (treasure 20) and the treasures dropped by the Lvl 7 Fighters (treasure 21), and this is only because another bug keeps the selector function from even reaching the part of the code with the first bug.

The treasure chest system also has some variables called “MFactor,” “MaxTimes,” and “PercBigr.” But these are only used by treasures 22 and 23, which are not dropped by any monster in the game, so I have left this out.

Here’s the full treasure lookup table.

Common item properties

Here’s an overview of some of the item properties that are common to multiple item types, but aren’t self-explanatory.

Boltac

How much of this item Boltac’s has in stock at the start. This decreases when you buy one, and increases when you sell one, but Boltac’s will never sell you cursed items, even if he has them in stock. They persist from game to game; if you sell Boltac’s a Lord’s Garb, then delete every character from the roster and roll a new party, Boltac’s will still have that Lord’s Garb in stock until somebody buys it.

These numbers represent the values in my copy of the game, and not the copies floating around on Asimov. I believe that the copies on Asimov are all based on a pirate copy that has already been played, and I have restored these values to the numbers found in the PC and NES versions, which I believe accurately represent the Apple II version’s out-of-the-box stock.

AC

Equipping this item lowers your AC by this much. Negative values raise it, which is bad. A few non-armor items have this property.

Special: Casts

You can use the item to cast a spell. Sometimes this comes with a chance of depleting the item, which will cause it to transform into a different item. For instance, Staff of Mogref has [Casts: MOGREF, 25% BROKEN ITEM], which means it can cast Mogref, but has a 25% chance of turning into a Broken item when you do. Items without this second designation will never be depleted.

Special: Invoke

Like casting, except that you invoke the item during a camping session and the effect is unique. Every invokable item except for Werdna’s Amulet can be depleted.

Special: Critical hits

Equipping this allows you to critical hit like a ninja. Pointless, because the Shuriken is the only weapon with this ability, and only ninjas can equip it.
 

Special: Heal X

Carrying this (you don't need to equip it) gives you a 25% chance of healing X points each step and each round of combat. If you have multiple healing items, only the one with the largest value takes. The Ring of Healing and Lord’s Garb heal 1, and Werdna's Amulet heals 5. The Deadly Ring is supposed to hurt you 3 points, but doesn't in this version because the game logic selects the "bigger" default value of 0 over the Deadly Ring's value of -3.

Protection: Class protection

When monsters of the protected type(s) target you, there's a 50% chance that it silently fails, causing them to lose their turn. Note that all monster actions, including breath attacks, party-hitting spells, and actions without obvious targets like running or calling, always target a random living party member. Class protection will not protect you from breath attacks or group spells that targeted a non-protected character.
 
Melee attacks are a special case, due to some strange programming. Melee attacks technically target  two party members - the first can be any living member, and the second is someone in the first three ranks. This means two separate class protection checks, and either one may nullify the attack. It's possible for the same party member to be targeted both times, in which case if they have protection there is a 75% chance of nullifying it.

Protection: 2x damage

Your melee strikes do double damage against monsters of the targeted classes.

Protection: Elemental protection

Breath attacks and group-targeting spells of the indicated element(s) do half damage. In addition,
  • Physical – You are immune to paralysis effects from hits. You will also never suffer critical hits.
  • Poison – You are immune to poison effects from hits.
  • Drain – You are immune to level drain.
  • Stone – You are immune to stone effects from hits.
  • Magic – When a monster targets you with any spell, the spell is silently nullified. Note that spells cast by monsters always target a randomly chosen living character, even if it's a group-affecting spell like Mahalito. Magic protection will not protect you if a group-affecting spell targets a non-protected character.

Weapons

Two tables. The first describes general properties of all weapons, and the second describes special properties of magic weapons. Magic weapons are bolded.

HitMod

Increase your character’s HitMod by this much, allowing you to hit more often. Negative values decrease it.

HitDam

The weapon’s base damage, per successful hit.

SwingCount

The number of strikes per turn. This does not stack with the number of swings your character would normally get. The higher value is the one that takes.

A SwingCount of 0 is essentially equivalent to a SwingCount of 1, since all characters are guaranteed at least 1 swing at any level.

The Dagger of Speed is the only weapon with an AC modifier. It's negative, which is bad. This might be an error, but on the other hand, this weapon swings an amazing 7 times per round, so perhaps this is a deliberate tradeoff.

Armor

Once again, two tables. One for the general properties of all armor, and one for special properties of magic armor. Magic armor is bolded.

The cursed robe and cursed helm decrease your HitMod by 2, which is bad.

The Lords Garb is flagged to grant critical hits and 2x damage toward were monsters, undead, and demons, but these flags in effect don't do anything. The game logic only checks for these flags on weapons. An oversight?

These items all cast a spell when used, and then turn into BROKEN ITEM. Any class can use any consumable.

Picture

These pictures were extracted from the Apple II disk images.

Names

Each monster gets four names. A normal name, a name representing the unidentified monster, and plural variants for both.

Group Size

The number of monsters that may appear in a group. This will never exceed (MazeLevel + 4).

HP / Level

The hit dice which determine the monster’s starting HP, which rolls for each individual monster during an encounter. The dice count also serves as the monster's level. Kobolds, for instance, with 2d3 + 1 HP, count as level 2.


Some of these notes reference formulas that I’ve discussed in the previous post.

A monster's chance to hit you in melee is (Level + YourAC) * 5% per strike.

A monster's chance to resist a successful critical hit is (Level + 10)/35.

Each monster's chance to resist Manifo is (Level * 10%) + 50%.

Each monster's chance to resist Montino and Badi is Level * 10%.

Each monster's chance to resist Katino is Level * 20%.

Monsters always resist Makanito if their level is greater than 7.

Each monster’s chance to resist Lakanito is Level * 6%.

A monster's chance to resist Dispell increases by Level * 10%.


The morale of a monster group is equal to its level, multiplied by the number of monsters whose status is OK.

When your total party level exceeds the total monster morale of all groups, they will be demoralized, and monsters with the Run ability have a 65% chance to flee.

When monsters are demoralized (even if they cannot run), your chance to succeed when running is 20% higher.


Each monster's chance to heal AFRAID status is Level * 10% per turn, but not more than 50%. I am not sure if the AFRAID status is even possible in Wizardry; fear-related spells just raise AC.

Each monster's chance to heal ASLEEP status is Level * 20% per turn, but not more than 50%.

Each monster's chance to heal PARALYZE status is Level * 7% per turn, but not more than 50%. PARALYZE also doesn't seem to be possible to inflict. Monsters successfully held with MANIFO are simply put into ASLEEP status.


When monsters advance, each monster has a “strength” value determined by this formula:
[Remaining HP] - 3 * (MageLevel + PriestLevel)

The group strength is the sum of all monsters’ strength in the group, only counting monsters with OK status.

After group strength is calculated for all groups, monster group 4 compares its strength to monster group 3, and performs this calculation:
20% * [Group 4 Strength] / [Group 3 Strength] + 31%

This result is the probability that each group moves up a rank.

The process repeats for group 3 and group 2.

Class determines the odds of being friendly.

Midget (unused) 31%
Dragon 26%
All others 1%


Certain items, when equipped, will have a 50% chance of silently nullifying attacks from specific monster classes, should the monster decide to attack the character equipped with such an item. They do not affect spells or breath weapons.

Certain weapons deal double damage against specific monster classes.

Makanito never affects the undead. Zilwan and Dispell only affect the undead.

Class determines fighting style, though this is strictly an aesthetic detail.

Mythical Claws
Dragon Both

Were Both
Undead Arms

Enchanted Claws

A monster with “arms” SWINGS, THRUSTS, STABS, SLASHES, and CHOPS.

A monster with “claws” TEARS, RIPS, GNAWS, BITES, and CLAWS.

A monster with “both” can do any of those things.

Attacks

Simple hit dice to determine damage when a monster hits.

Some monsters have multiple attacks, and they don’t always do the same amount of damage. For instance, the greater demon’s attack is:
2d12 1d6 1d4 1d4 1d4

That means it strikes five times, each strike has a separate chance to hit, and each landed hit inflicts the corresponding damage roll.

Special: X Breath

The monster has a breath attack of element type X. Any monster with a breath attack has a 60% chance of using it instead of attacking. Breath attacks hit all players for damage equal to half of the monster’s remaining HP. Characters equipped with an item with that elemental resistance, or who make a saving throw against breath will take half damage. If both conditions are met, they take 25% damage. Element type has no other effect. Stone breath, for instance, does not petrify; it merely indicates that characters equipped with stone elemental protection will take half damage.

Special: Drain X

If you are hit, you will lose X levels, and your maxHP will be reduced to ([newLevel]*[oldMaxHP])/[MaxLev], where MaxLev is the highest level you've reached without getting drained (switching classes resets your level but not your MaxLevel). You’ll be LOST if you drop below level 1!

The creeping coins don't have this ability; they only have a breath attack with the Drain element.

Special: Heal X

The monster heals this many HP per round.

Special: Unique 1

This is a property found only found in the Level 7 Fighters, found in the monster allocation center in Level 4. When you kill a group of this monster, the value decreases by 1, permanently, and from then on will never be fought again, not even by subsequent parties starting new games. In all of the Apple II disk images of Wizardry I on Asimov, this value is already set to 0! I’ve “fixed” this in my own copy by bringing it back to 1, which I believe is the intended starting value.

If you encounter a monster whose "unique" value is 0, then you will fight its partner instead.

Reward 1 & Reward 2

Index values used to lookup the type of treasure the monster leaves. This is always based on the monster type that was initially selected for the encounter. Monsters types that populated the rear ranks are irrelevant.

“Reward 1” almost always indicates an amount of loose gold, and “Reward 2” almost always indicates a treasure chest which may or may not have items inside. Whether you get reward type 1 or type 2 is not entirely random.

As described in a previous post, upon entering a dungeon level, the map will be seeded with nine treasure chests, which will be distributed in designated treasure rooms. Entering a room with a treasure chest guarantees an encounter, and the “Reward 2” column will be selected as the contents of the treasure chest. Treasures from standard encounters are selected from the “Reward 1” column and are usually just loose piles of gold.

If you set off an alarm trap, then you'll still get a "Reward 2" prize after winning the resulting encounter, without having to re-open the treasure chest, but the prize will be determined from the resulting encounter rather than from the initial one.

If you have a random encounter in a treasure room where there isn't any treasure chest, you will recieve loose gold from the “Reward 1” column, but the amount will be doubled.

Partner

When a monster encounter is selected, it will be in the first monster group. There is a chance that it will come with a “partner,” if it has one, in the second monster group. This is recursive; if the partner type is selected, then that partner also gets a chance of having its partner in the next group slot. There is a limit of 4 groups, or MazeLevel+1, whichever is lower.

For example, bubbly slimes have a partner value of 10% orc. So if you encounter them, there is a 10% chance that orcs will spawn too. If this happens, then since orcs have a partner value of 20% kobold, there would be a 20% chance of the orcs coming with kobolds, and so on.

Mage Level

The highest level of mage spell that the monster may cast.

Monster mage logic:
  • Monsters with any mage spells have a 75% of casting instead of attacking.
  • The monster then selects a random value from the right column of this table, according to the odds in the left column:

    71% 0
    20.59% 1
    5.97% 2
    1.73% 3
    0.5% 4
    0.15% 5
    0.06% 6
  • This number is subtracted from the Mage Level value, but it won’t drop below 1. 
  • Finally, the monster picks one of two spells within that level. There is a 66% chance of picking spell A, and a 34% chance of picking spell B.
  • After casting the spell, there is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's mage level decreases by one point, affecting all individuals within it.

Monster mage spells (levels do not completely correspond to player spell levels):


A B
1 Katino Halito
2 Dilto Halito
3 Molito Mahalito
4 Dalto Lahalito
5 Lahalito Madalto
6 Madalto Zilwan
7 Tiltowait Tiltowait

It's curious that Zilwan is one of the spells, as it will never affect anyone in your party!

 

Priest Level

Priest spellcasting logic is a bit different.
  • A priest spellcaster who did not cast a mage spell has a 75% chance of casting a priest spell instead of attacking.
  • When casting a priest spell, monsters always select the highest value allowed.
  • There is still a 66% chance of selecting spell A and a 34% chance of selecting spell B.
  • There is a 1 / (Monster group size + 2) chance that the group's priest level decreases by one point. Same as with mage spells.


A B
1 Badios Badios
2 Montino Montino
3 Badios Badial
4 Badial Badial
5 Badialma Badi
6 Lorto Mabadi
7 Mabadi Mabadi

Spell Resistance

The monster’s percentage chance to resist certain spells. A resisted spell has no effect on the monster.

Spells subject to SpellResistance are:
Badios, Badial, Badialma, Litokan, Lorto, Malikto, Halito, Mahalito, Molito, Dalto, Lahalito, Madalto, Zilwan, Tiltowait

Elemental Resistance 

Spell damage from group targeting-spells is cut in half if the monster resists the corresponding element. Physical resistance does not affect non-spell damage!

Element Spells
Fire Litokan, Mahalito, Lahalito
Physical Lorto, Malikto, Molito, Tiltowait
Cold Dalto, Madalto

Poison, Drain, Stone, and Magic elemental resistances do nothing, because none of the group-targeting spells in Wizardry are aligned to those elements.

Abilities

  • Sleep – The only “bad” ability. Monsters with this ability are affected by Katino. Any others are not.
  • Run – If the monster party is demoralized, then each monster with this ability has a 65% chance to run each turn.
  • Critical – When the monster lands one or more successful hits, it has a [Level * 2%] chance, up to a maximum of 50%, to instantly kill.
  • Poison – Sets poison rate to 1 on a successful hit.
  • Paralyze – Inflicts paralysis on a successful hit.
  • Call – If the monster group has fewer than 5 monsters in it, then each monster has a 75% chance of calling for help instead of attacking. The chance that a call for help will be successful is (MonsterLevel * 5%).
  • Stone – Inflicts stone status on a successful hit.

XP calculation

Interestingly, the XP value of a monster is not actually part of the monster tables, but is calculated from the monster’s stats!

To get the XP value, calculate each line item, and then add them up.

If a line item’s governning stat is zero (AC excepted), then it doesn’t count. For instance, the second item uses MageLevel. If a monster’s MageLevel is zero, then the algorithm just skips that line item rather than plugging in a value of zero.
  • [Hit dice count] * [Hit dice sides] * 20 * [1 + HasBreath]
    • HasBreath = 0 normally, HasBreath = 1 if the monster uses a breath attack.
  • + 35 * 2^[MageLevel – 1]
  • + 35 * 2^[PriestLevel – 1]
  • + 200 * 2^[DrainLevel – 1]
  • + 90 * 2^[HealLevel – 1]
  • - 40 * [ArmorClass – 11]
  • + 30 * 2^[AttackCount – 1]
    • (only if the monster has at least two attacks!)
  • + 40 * 2^[SpellResistance/10]
  • + 10000 * 2^[SpellResistance/10 – 8]
    • (only if the monster has at least 80 Spell Resistance! This line item is due to a bug in the way Wizardry calculates multiplication of large numbers.)
  • + 35 * 2^[ElementalResistances – 1]
    • Count the number of elemental resistances EXCEPT for physical!
  • + 40 * 2^[Abilities -1]
    • Count the number of abilities, including sleep.


To illustrate this, I’ll show how the Greater Demon’s XP gets calculated.
  • [Hit dice count] * [Hit dice sides] * 20 * [1 + HasBreath]
    • 11 * 8 * 20 * [1+0]
    • 11 * 8 * 20 * 1
    • 1760
  • + 35 * 2^[MageLevel – 1]
    • + 35 * 2^[5-1]
    • + 35 * 2^4
    • + 35 * 16
    • + 560
  • + 90 * 2^[HealLevel – 1]
    • + 90 * 2^[1 – 1]
    • + 90 * 2^0
    • + 90 * 1
    • + 90
  • – 40 * [ArmorClass – 11]
    • – 40 * [-3-11]
    • – 40 * -14
    • + 560
  • + 30 * 2^[AttackCount – 1]
    • + 30 * 2^[5-1]
    • + 30 * 2^4
    • + 30 * 16
    • + 480
  • + 40 * 2^[SpellResistance/10]
    • + 40 * 2^[95/10]
    • + 40 * 2^9
    • + 40 * 512
    • + 20480
  • + 10000 * 2^[SpellResistance/10 – 8]
    • + 10000 * 2^[95/10 – 8]
    • + 10000 * 2^[9-8]
    • + 10000 * 2^1
    • + 10000 * 2
    • + 20000
  • + 40 * 2^[Abilities -1]
    • + 40 * 2^[3-1]
    • + 40 * 2^2
    • + 40 * 4
    • + 160

Summing them all up:
  • 1760
  • + 560
  • + 90
  • + 560
  • + 480
  • + 20480
  • + 20000
  • + 160
  • = 44090
If you followed that, you may have noticed that the SpellResistance accounted for most the total XP. I mentioned this before, but monsters with high Spell Resistance are always worth a lot of XP in Wizardry.

Next post I’ll go into the treasure system and items, and should be my last word on Wizardry I.
