h a humanoidHumanoids are all approximately the size of a human, and may
be mistaken for one at a distance. They are usually of a
tribal nature, and will fiercely defend their lairs. Usually
hostile, they may even band together to raid and pillage
human settlements.

(mind flayerThis creature has a humanoid body, tentacles around its
covered mouth, and three long fingers on each hand. Mind
flayers are telepathic, and love to devour intelligent beings,
especially humans. If they hit their victim with a tentacle,
the mind flayer will slowly drain it of all intelligence,
eventually killing its victim.

@ "I should just make it to the doorThrough me you pass into the city of woe:
Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.
Justice the founder of my fabric mov'd:
To rear me was the task of power divine,
Supremest wisdom, and primeval love.
Before me things create were none, save things
Eternal, and eternal I endure.
All hope abandon ye who enter here.

Something to do with quantum teleportation maybe?

The answer is of course no. The name Heisenberg would mean nothing to him now that his brain has been eaten.

Okay, I think I get it. Dudley knew where the mindflayer was, but he couldn't precisely predict where it was going to be.

Yeah. You can measure a particle's location, or it's velocity, but not both at the same time. Granted that's for subatomic particles, and midnflayers are a lot bigger, but hey.

Technically it's the same for the big guys too.

You just can't tell exactly where they are and how fast they're going at the same time.

It's not as though Heisenberg hasn't made an appearance in NetHack before. Viz.:

"The quantum mechanicThese creatures are not native to this universe; they seem
to have strangely derived powers, and unknown motives.

In the third panel, Dudley should have said "Wha? How'd you get here so fast?"
That would've upgraded my rating to Fair.

LOL - saw an archery comic like this once: "Ah, well, Mr Heisenberg, I knew exactly how fast my arrowI shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
        [ The Arrow and the Song,
         by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow ]
