On a slightly different (and possibly annoying) note, could I politely ask people to correctly spell "Tolkien"? We've had three errors in this thread. :(

Maybe this could show up in the monster description? :D


Regarding Nick's original post, I'm less interested in the Tolkienisation of (Vanilla) Angband as in the preservation of Moria. Here's...

A few comments:

1. In principle, I like the idea of darkness generating monsters.

2. I'm a bit concerned that it will make detection and ESP even more important. I use them all the time anyway,...

I find Horned Reapers boring because I teleport them all away.

Now, if teleport and teleport other were removed, that would be a different story... :rolleyes:

Nick,

A few comments on the new mage. I appreciate that you're working on other aspects at the moment, but I'm liable to forget otherwise. These are all fairly minor.

Nick,

A few comments on a recently played-through a Druid. I'm sorry these may sound negative, but the truth is that I found this Druid less fun than in an earlier version of yours.

Would it make sense to rename the stealth scores so that they actually reflect this? What is at the moment "Excellent" ought to be "Fair", then "Superb" ought to be "Good", and so on.
