|11/20||No effect. One of the following messages:
|1/20||If you are fire resistant, no effect; otherwise, you lose d6
|1/20||A sewer rat is generated (unless genocided or extinct).
|1/20||You suffer the effect of quaffing a random uncursed potion
(other than water).
|1/20||If you have already acquired a ring from this sink (by quaffing
or kicking), no effect; otherwise, a random ring is created and
your wisdom exercised.
|1/20||The sink becomes a fountain.
|1/20||A water elemental is created (unless extinct).
|1/20||You gain one experience point.
|1/20||You vomit and your hunger is increased.
|1/20||If you have unchanging, no effect; otherwise, you polymorph.
|4/5||"Klunk! The pipes vibrate noisily." Exercise dexterity.|
|1/5||Something else, as follows:
If you haven't yet got a black pudding from the sink, 1/3 chance of one being generated and your dexterity being exercised.
If you didn't get a pudding and haven't yet had a dish washer, 1/3 chance of one being summoned (an incubus if a female humanoid, a succubus if a male humanoid, otherwise an equal chance of either), and your dexterity being exercised.
If you didn't get either of the above, 1/3 chance of a random ring being created provided the sink hasn't yet given one through kicking or quaffing, and your wisdom and dexterity being exercised.
If you didn't get any of the above, you get a hurt foot. Your dexterity and strength are abused, there is a 1/3 chance of your right leg being hurt for 5 to 10 turns, and you lose d5 HP (d3 HP if your constitution is greater than 15).
Sinks, as the name suggests, will cause anything in the air above them to fall to the floor: thrown weapons, or you when levitating (inflicting d8 + 24 - CON damage, plus d3 for each weapon or stack of weapons on the square). Dropping rings onto a sink will usually cause them to be lost down it, with a message that may enable you to identify the ring; see ring-343.html for a list of these effects. Digging down on a sink square will convert it into a fountain as in the quaffing result above ("The pipes break! Water spurts out!").
