[1] If there is gold lying on the ground on the level on which the PC is currently located, it will occasionally generate a message "You sense the presence of gold", or "You feel the urge to get rich really fast." if there is a Royal Vault on the level.

[2] Cursed: 1 HP, uncursed: 1/2 HP, blessed: full HP; amulet of life saving does not save your life if you get killed by - collapsing dungeon (kicking stairs, you die with the amulet around your neck), old age (it tries to save you but says your time has come and fails); corruption (though it's not really a death, instead you are transformed into a little purple j); wearing insufficient equipment when entering the chaos gate (AoLS disappears when you enter it); sacrificing yourself (god destroys your amulet if you try to cheat him/her and then you are sacrificed - under certain circumstances your god forgives you and will let you continue but without your amulet); getting sacrificed by a monster (you die with the amulet around your neck)

[3] Banshee wail just causes 20d15 damage instead of instant death if this amulet is worn

[4] Uncursed halves the time required to receive one point of HP healed due to natural regeneration; blessed reduces that time divided by eight; cursed does nothing

[5] Blessed also grants some sort of "vision" to blind players - it allows the map to be drawn only one square around character; monsters are not visible.

[6] 60% / 80% / 120% chance of such attacks B/U/C

The amulets with a numerical modifier above are base value in g16p2. There are others available. The numerical modifier can be {base value} +/- 3. Amulets of speed, however, are always (+3 spd). Extensive testing was done by wishing for amulets of the cold heart, amulets of defense, and amulets of order. For the statisticians among the readers, the results are shown here.
