artefacts colored?
items of such power are somehow (should be?) distinguishable from normal Equipment

maybe there could be a UI-Option to show artefacts in a Special Color? (similar to unique Monsters in purple)

Wouldn't it be strange for items to change color the moment they are identified?

re: ID
Yeah, i thought that artefacts ID themself anyway if you pick them up, until now i always got the {Special} flag on picking an artefact up. So, if they had another colour (before IDing) that would basically reveal the same just before i pick it up.

I think changing color would be pretty neat actually. I wouldn't see this as a bug.

Maybe we embrace the color code from most mmo/diablo-like games and make them all orange! :)

Or purple to match unique monsters. And with as many artifacts as appear in Angband they're more like "epic" items than the handful of artifacts you see in many games (though I must confess I haven't played Diablo 3 or 2, maybe the loot is a lot different from D1). I'm mostly thinking of MMOs and such.

Portralis had colored items, but the colors mostly differentiated between normal/worthless items, ego items (pink), and egos with levelling (blue and green). Artifacts were yellow while crafted items were orange I think.
