While the units are unfamiliar, they don’t matter save in a relative sense.

On the other hand, flipping between the displayed unit name wouldn’t be that hard. (The metric weights wouldn’t make...

I just poked at this, and it looks like the spell’s message eats the rest of the input. If the first spell doesn’t give a message, the second goes off. IMO, this is a bug.

It’s a relatively minor ability. I don’t see any reason not to let it be all traps.

You can dual-license your tiles, so if somebody wants to go to the work of replacing the others, they could distribute yours under a more permissive license.
(Assuming you wanted them to.)

Possible source would be either the Iron Crown MERP RPG, or Tolkien’s excessive notes and letters. Or it could be utterly non-canon.

Either way, I don’t see a need to change it just because it’s...

Randarts generating actual names

I just found the Broad Sword of Beren, and was wondering how often the name generator manages to roll up names from either Tolkien or the real world.

My low-level (13 at the time) Hobbit Necromancer got this. I think I’ll be keeping it for a while.

It immediately turned the level 8 feeling of that level (a soldier/warrior pit, mostly warriors)...

I suspect the ToME code wouldn’t be that easy to port to a modern Angband. The store code in general has changed quite a bit since then.

But you wouldn't need to. Anyone wanting to implement a...

That’s a swap item; you wear it to take the stairs, use it, then forget about it until you’re going down again. (With the option of swapping for fights against big fire breathers.)

I’m fine with Beorn being in the game.

It was clear that Beorn was pretty hostile to strangers. Dude’s a bear; get into his space and you’re going to have a bad time of it.

Bug IMO.

Charging rods stack, so other charging items should as well.

I don’t think such a table’s ever been part of Angband’s documentation. (I don’t remember it in Moria, either, but that’s much more likely to be incorrect.)

It depends on how fast you can kill them, and the environment you’re in. As long as they aren’t piling up in a big open space, they aren’t that dangerous.

These days, it’s mostly that NetHack uses those directional keys, which is a good argument for keeping them.
