Sacrifice

This does not take into account whether, or by what means, you have converted your alignment, so a helm of opposite alignment can be used to quickly ascend at a cross-aligned altar. If you offer the Amulet on a cross-aligned high altar, that altar's god gains dominion over yours and allows you to escape in celestial disgrace.

If you offer the Amulet on the high altar to Moloch in the Sanctum , Moloch 'mercilessly snuffs out your life', or if you have life saving , disintegrates you into a pile of dust, ignoring disintegration resistance. If you somehow survive that, you again escape. Offering a cheap plastic imitation of the Amulet of Yendor on a high altar gives a penalty of -1 luck and no other effect.

However, if the amulet was identified as a fake, the penalty is instead -3 luck, -1 alignment and your god getting angry by 3. Offering a real or fake Amulet on a non-high altar does not end the game. If the altar is an unaligned altar in Gehennom , your god gets angry and Moloch smites you.

Otherwise, if hallucinating, 'You feel homesick'; or if the altar is co-aligned, 'You feel an urge to return to the surface'; otherwise, 'You feel ashamed'. If the creature you sacrifice is of your own race, you get good effects if you're chaotic and bad effects otherwise.

The age of the corpse does not matter, so zombies and mummies will work. The check for same race is done before the check for a former pet and ignores the check for age, so same-race corpses are always fit for sacrifice until they rot away completely.

In the Roman Catholic Church the official explanation of how Christ is present is called transubstantiation.

This is simply an explanation of how , not a statement that , he is present. Anglicans and Orthodox do not attempt to define how, but simply accept the mystery of his presence. Alexander, a journalist and former actor and philosopher, tells his little son how worried he is about the lack of spirituality of modern mankind. In the night of his birthday, the third world war breaks out.

In his despair Alexander turns himself in a prayer to God, offering him everything to have the war not happen at all. Written by Gert de Boer.

Tarkovsky's death bed film certainly lacks some of the fire and energy of his earlier work, but the story of Alexander's search for faith amidst the worst kind of madness is by no means dull. The cinematography and editing are obviously Bergman influenced, but anyone who says that it bothers them to see Tarkovsky borrow the style of another needs to learn more about Eisenstein, Kuleshov, and perhaps Wajda.

This film serves as a stark example of the real difference between the work of the European authors and Hollywood. While viewing, keep an eye on the editing. Th film opens on a five minute long shot in which it is extremely difficult to even discern which character is speaking. The scenes are made up of as few shots as possible and the shortest shot of the entire film is about 10 seconds.
