Yes, I know the name of the personality would imply it, but apparently that's not enough and it needs to be explicitly stated that Craven gives vFear; its current description doesn't do that.

I think it's not stated because Craven also penalizes your CL for fear check calculations; and only mentioning the vFear might give the inaccurate implication that that's the only fear-related penalty, while mentioning both feels like overkill for a short flavor description. (They are both mentioned in the much longer help section on fear.)

Bugs/RFEs: Various Things
Bunch of various things; some arguably bugs, and some arguably not but also don't make sense if you stop to think about them.

  • Necromancers two-handing something still counts for them having a "free hand" for touch attacks. Possibly applies for mummies too, etc.
  • Similar problem with (at least) mummies; according to Bucephalus, they can wear a shield, hold the reins while riding, and still have a "free hand" for their gimmicks.
  • Animate Dead, logically, reanimates corpses and skeletons . . . yet, detect spells treat the reanimated as living still. Not strictly a bug, but a logic problem with the current system.

One More Thing
Oh, one more thing about Animate Dead: while regular monsters running away might make sense, it doesn't for undead slaves!

Bug/RFE: Necromancers and Vecnacrown
If I'm understanding how things work correctly, Vecnacrown can't drop for Necromancers. Ever.

It's a setchance drop from Vecna only, and for Necromancers Vecnahand takes priority in the statement.

Vecna really needs 100% to drop his head.
That is such a good (apocryphal) story. Direct ancestor of Leeeeroy Jenkkns!

Like all the best maintainers.

Bug: Necromancer Touch Spells and Fear
A necromancer's touch spells don't appear to be consistent with current fear code; as far as I can tell it looks like it (necromancer.c starting at line 14) still presumes old binary fear code (e.g. current V/FA2), where being afraid at all prevents you from doing the thing (melee, or in a Necromancer's case their touch spells which in a lot of ways count as melee) and also prevents you from wasting the turn due to fear getting in the way.

Quick question - when casting Genocide, why does the game ask for confirmation if it's a 'n' or 'X'? What's special about nagas and xorns?
