But the Sexy personality already aggravates, so no reason not to use them then (I don't think Aggro stacks in Heng-likes).

I'm glad to see Hengband get some (English) exposure on YT, it and TOME2 were my favorite roguelikes as a teenager.

I had a near-death from hunger in the new Hengband a few weeks ago. I had entered a dungeon (can't remember which, mountains maybe) from the surface, dived down, filled my pack with loot then ate and dropped my food to carry yet more loot. Recalled back to surface and found myself in the middle of nowhere. I got about a third of the way to the nearest town before I became faint.
Nobody I encountered dropped food so I had to chug !CCW until I was merely hungry so I could return to the world map and figure out the exact directions to the town.
I eventually ran out of !CCW (I started with about 80) and had to waste my potions of Healing but I managed to stumble into town and make it to the Inn.

Ooh that's a good tip, I may have some healing potion or other that could tide me over a few extra turns, I'll have to check on that. Depending on how this Recall power works--hm well eh if I can't get it to work I'll probably just starve well before I make it out, but I suppose you never know what sort of fortuitous arrangement of up-shafts may materialize. ; )

Does regular Recall just have a chance to drop you somewhere out in the wilderness, or was there a particular reason that happened?

I think if you enter a dungeon from the wilderness you recall up to its surface location instead of a town, but I'm not 100% sure.
