If you have teleportitis... you can eat a tengu and you might get teleport control. If you're lawful and level... seven... I think... you can #dip a longsword in a fountain and you've got a good chance the fountain will bless your sword and change it into Excalibur.

You can #dip for Excalibur at level 5 when you are Lawful.

However it's better to level up to about 7 anyway, as you can defend better against other things the fountain may produce.

toss a coin <.

Engrave Elbereth.

Kick grey stones to check. Thumps are usually lode stones.

Engrave to check harder Gems (usually worth a lot more)

Towel can be put on for a blindfold

Engraving wands can identify like 3/4s of them.

Bag of holding and wand of cancelation DONT mix.

All keys are Skeleton keys,

Whistles that make unusual noise are magical (teleport pets instantly to you) all others are near useless except to make noise.

Oil weapons to make them rust proof. Oil Armor fo the same?

Dip weapons into sickness to make poisoned weapons.

Unicorn horns are valuable. (saves vs almost any status alignment and decent attack)

Dipping Unicorn horns can clear "bad" potions.

Smoky Potions arn't always the type of potion you think it is.

That's it for now. Enjoy.

Not true. Oil removes rust from rusty weapons and armour, but does not rustproof them. However, grease works as a cover which stops them rusting once and then needs to be re-applied.

Dip weapons into sickness to make poisoned weapons.

Only for arrows and darts, though.

Drop items on an altar to see if it's blessed/normal/cursed
Either name or engrave Sting on a (short)sword to make it magical (I've forgotten the details for this one :( )
Wield a worm's tooth and read Enchant weapons scrolls to change it into a Crys Knife and then into a Fixed Crys Knife.
Wish for Vorpal Blade... It's got a chance to instantly kill ANY enemy in the game IIRC (at least some of the big bad guys near the end have been decapitated with one stroke by my trusty blade :p )
Polymorph into something that can lay eggs to gain your own mini army of children/monsters
