Only been playing Angband for about 3 weeks now and love it. When you put gloves on a caster, it says that your hand feel wierd. (or something like that, cant remember exact context) Does this actually affect anything?? Also it seems that there are NO class restrictions for weapons and armor.. is this right??

Thanks to you guys that have been doin this a while

Gloves will reduce your total SP by a third. In addition every lb (weight) of Armor above 30 will cost you 1SP (but the weight of your weapons doesn'T matter).
I think the fail rate will raise, too, but i don't know that exactly.

Wearing gloves, etc will reduce your mana significantly (by 33% or 25%?) unless they're gloves (etc) of Agility or Free Action.

Other weapon/armour restrictions: Priests/Paladins using a non-blessed edged weapon will have restrictions on their spellcasting (don't remember which type, though - increased fail rates or decreased mana?). Wearing very heavy armor may reduce spellcaster's mana, although I think your weight limit increases with CL...

There's the user manual wiki (http://rephial.org/wiki/UserManual). If you're after spoilers, there's Hugo Kornelis' spoiler site (http://www.juti.nl/hugo/Angband/Spoiler/index.htm).

It's only priests that have the edged weapon penatly, not paladins, and it raises fail rates.

I don't think the weight limit increases with CL, but it's different for each class:
Mages: 30lb, Priest & Rogue: 35lb, Ranger & Paladin 40lb.

And Paladins can also wear gloves/gauntlets without spell casting penalty.
