Many modern-day games have quick-use slots that are essentially the equivalent of Angband keymaps. Usually they are tied to inventory: first you select an object (e.g., a book), then all actions...

Not really, but enchanting a weapon via scrolls becomes more and more difficult the more its bonus gets higher. A general rule of thumb is that after you get to ca. +10 the returns become too low.

To be honest, I'd find having to move items in and out of chests utterly boring. It is very tedious in Nethack.
And code to put items back in chests is tedious to write and maintain.

Danbang: welcome to this forum, it's good to see new players! A useful trick for you: try 'I'nspecting objects (capital i command); this often gives useful information on their effect.

It's kinda Tolkien canon that hobbits are resistant to the "dark power" of the ring; maybe OP was referring to that.

Let me join in the appreciation post for Nick's work. The ruins of Angband :D couldn't be in a better state; it is a much more enjoyable game than it was years ago and the improvements are visible.

Wouldn't that conflict with the Tolkien canon if the Fallen Man were Gandalf? Not a Tolkien expert myself, just asking.

Any opinions on the first two episodes? I like how the races were portrayed, but for now in my view it fails to paint a strong, interesting story. I hope there is more to the plot coming.

I'll bite and be the one to ask it. Does anyone actually like Angband being 100-level long, or at this point it's only a "it's always been like that" and no one would mind if it got, say, 20 levels...

In a sense, an "artifacts" tab in the knowledge menu could fit the bill? I don't have a version of the game around right now to check if there already exists one.
