Pit Traps

I'm trying to do my first deep dive and I've got as far as floor 27. I cannot find any pit traps despite a ring of searching. I go up a floor, and another, and another before I find a pit trap. I find two more and I'm back on floor 27 but once again no pit traps.

Am I doomed to circle around like this in my quest for a deep dive? Am I right to conclude that possessing the Amulet makes no difference to finding pit traps?

IIRC in the original Rogue you were given a choice of up or down when you got to stairs with up only allowed once you got the amulet.

btw, I'm playing Neo and enjoying whacking away at dragons with my measly +1/+2 two-hander. I call it revenge.

Thanks! Presumably the amulet appears on every floor afterwards? I think I saw this mentioned without there being a conclusive answer.

Or do you give up all hope of return and just go deeper and deeper?

I just dropped the Amulet, went down the stairs and found another Amulet. Woo Hoo! Can this game get any better?

(Can't wait for the next version!)
