I've got an armor of Elvenkind that makes the game hang if I try and purchase it. Is this a known issue?
If not, do you want the save file and randart file?

I just go to purchase the armor from the armor shop.

Not known, yes please.

Spell lists
 
Sorry if this isn't the proper place to ask; is there any plan to rework the spell lists in the future for FA to be more akin to the original? And are you planning on retaining the 5 book system or going back to the classic 9 books?

Having a lot of fun playing FA 1.4.4 while I wait for this to get to a slightly more playable state. Thanks in advance!

Are these actually correct? A minimum of -3 on -1+d2. I've got gloves that look like these except without a move speed bonus or a description. Just a set of leather gloves.

The -1+d2 for the movement speed will evaluate to 0 or 1. If a pair of them generate with a zero movement speed bonus, @ shouldn't see the ego description unless @ already knows the movement speed rune. Do you remember if that was true for what you saw?

The min-values part will keep the gloves from generating with a movement speed adjustment less than -3. I put in -3 because I was unsure if Nick's intent was to have this ego always generate with a movement speed penalty (-1*(1+d2) = -3 or -2) or to have it the way it currently is.

0 or 1, surely? A d2 is a coin flip with values 1 or 2; d2-1 is 0 or 1.

It's the gloves I'm wearing in this dump

So yeah it'll be just a set with zero move bonus. That's a little odd to my mind, as it doesn't have the name, but it also doesn't have a ? for an un-ided rune.

Yes. Corrected my post for that.

Since the object has zero for that modifier it doesn't have that rune (per the implementation in Vanilla and FirstAgeAngband) so no '?' for it. If the character doesn't know the movement speed rune (along with the rest that are involved) then the character won't know the Thievery ego. This object won't show description for the Thievery ego until that ego is fully known.

Completely logical but also baffling for the player. We are used to unknown ego times always having {??} if they do not have a name yet... being nameless and yet without {??} is a strange state!

Is it intentional that Create Darkness has no effect when used in towns during the daytime?
