I see the point of Blackmarket, raised in the poll thread.

Sometimes I'm short just 1k or even less to buy a wanted item in the BM. Maybe some sort of exchange policy?

For this ring of slaying, I'll most happily take your "The Rapier 'Forasgil'"

A quick thought on no_selling. I play certain types of characters. Currently i play gnome mage and try to become winner without the use of melee or firing.

If i find a powerfull sword, that does not give a resist, or some other benefit - it is useless for me. Even the Megadamage whip of slay something is worth nothing. But still i am happy about finding it, because i can sell it in town and hope to get something usefull over the black market (which ridiculously has already several priest spell books at sale, but no mage books *whine*).

If i cannot sell stuff anymore, i will have less often the 'lucky feeling' of finding something which benefits me in a certain way. I think that just finding gold does not give the same amount of satisfaction that the items you can sell do.

On the other hand, i am most likely in for the idea to abolish all shops. You only keep what you think could turn out usefull in the future.

P.S. If identify becomes available via consumable scroll - then the feature could eliminated as well. Why bother with IDing stuff, if it is expected that the player does it anyway. Then all items could be IDed by standard and noone would have to care about ID at all. Or eliminate ID at all - that at last would force the player to try things out.

Cheers,
Tibarius

You can play a no-sell game without having a setting that forces it. Just don't keep anything for selling.

That's true, but the no-sell setting also boosts gold drops to compensate.

Recall into the dungeon and clear a couple of rooms, then recall back. It's pretty unlikely you'll trigger restock on that short of a trip.
