I have no idea whether that was bad luck or if there's something out with the numbers.

Chris said some versions ago that he nerfed reforging to avoid over-powered outcomes

Check out this 7.0.1 bug:
http://angband.oook.cz/screen-show.php?id=4419

I also encountered the same bug on two occasions:
http://angband.oook.cz/screen-show.php?id=4420
http://angband.oook.cz/screen-show.php?id=4421

Coincidentally, this happened with Female Tonberry Skillmasters with Mighty or Lucky Personalities. After those two occasions, I can't reproduce the bug anymore.

I just noticed this only right now -- so how do we get the Stick of halfheart now?!

Edit - I should have consolidated all these messages into one. But different topics over PCB...anyways...

Because of the changes to Int and device skill, with low int and low device skill from classes, you can get negative device skill. However, because PCB is using an unsigned integer somewhere along the line for device skill calculations, a negative value basically wraps around and gives you a really high number.
Mighty Zombies now can use high power staves of mana storm and rods of angelic healing etc.

Maybe it's just me, but summons really seem to be insane right now. I'm tempted to skip anything undead right now at around depth 77 simply because after a couple turns, the level is full of black reavers and high level summoner undead (including uniques). At least it feels like that.

That suddenly makes Berserkers geniuses...

You can't.

This is a problem in 7.0.0, yes. I haven't played 7.0.1 enough to know if the uber-massive summoning persists. Maybe it is still a problem in 7.0.1 too?

(7.0.0) yeah it's a bit ridiculous. Utgard-Loke just summoned Yibb-Tstll on me. As if Utgard wasn't bad enough already.

That's a first! I have to say that Summoning had been cranked higher than in 3.x even. This is definitely on a whole new level. What's next - Utgard-Loke summoning Ymir, etc?
