What does force damage do? It doesn't seem to be mentioned in the documentation (by accident, or because it's supposed to be left for the player to figure out?) but it appears in breath weapons, at...

Any hints on instant-coffee mode? I tend to hit a wall at Angband 29, around XL 28, because the level guardian is too hard for me at that point (e.g., Implorington III, in my last game), DL 25 quests...

Hmm, I guess one just has to get used to the fact that a random monster has a small chance of one-shotting you, then. Another reason to play instant-coffee, I guess.

Is there a limit to how heavily a monster could get buffed in terms of mpower or max HP? If so, it could make sense to calculate a maximum on that basis, since the idea is to show the player the...

Ooh, so it's mean damage. The interpretation of it doesn't seem to be described in the help section about recall, so yeah, I assumed it was like vanilla. I agree with Pete that the maximum is more...

I just got killed by the mana bolt of a dark elven warlock. With easy_damage, I saw a message saying I took upwards of 120 damage, which is weird because the monster lore says "Mana Bolt (90, 1x)",...

DCSS is famous for its autoexplore. The old joke is that you can play DCSS with just two keys: O to autoexplore and Tab to attack the nearest monster. ToME 4 also has fancy autoexplore. In both...

Okay, thanks for explaining. If I submit a PR soon, it will probably just be code cleanup, so it shouldn't require any laborious playtesting to review. Autoexplore, even a very simple version of it,...

Thanks. I'm having trouble settling on a color scheme that I like: it's hard to find colors that are all readable yet also sufficiently distinct. I think Angband relies too heavily on whole words or...

Dark-on-light display

In curses mode, is there a way to get a light mode, day mode, or whatever you'd like to call a display that's primarily black-on-white instead of white-on-black? I have bad eyesight, and I keep...

Well said. At any rate, my latest @ found some gloves of free action on DL1, so that's auspicious. He's now at CL 26, DL 32.

I just lost a character at full hit points (about 135) from an ancient green dragon's breath. It's my fault for not treating it more carefully, since I didn't have poison resistance.

I've come to prefer diving just because it's more fun than fighting endless orcs.

Here's my current @. I've had good luck with randarts, and I got a scimitar that provides telepathy.

I use DejaVu Sans Mono for roguelikes as well as for my terminal, Emacs, etc. It's readable and looks good. Andale Mono is a good option if you'd like something sparser.

Man, randarts are good. I should turn them on for my next character. Maybe they're overpowered, but I'm still a noob, so I'm not going to complain.

Perhaps the oddest thing is that stealth is given on the character sheet as an adjective while everything else gets a number.

Oh, that's odd. Perhaps I got the message for having a total equipment weight that's too high and misread it as the message for wearing gloves.
