Lightbulb Charm / Friendly Summon

I'm curious why Angband (vanilla) has no spell which will charm a monster to fight for the player, or a spell that summons such a monster.

Is it because it would require (relatively) significant...

Lightbulb Level Feelings

I thought I'd start a new thread rather than post to the Spellbook spawning one.

Derakon recommends playing with level feelings turned off. The original idea behind feelings (perhaps, no one...

What was the original intent for level feelings? Back in 2.4 I think I used them to avoid missing out permanently on artifacts left behind on a level. In those days there was a level of feeling...

Recent changes I like

I thought it would only be fair to Nick to list somethings I've noticed in v4 that I quite like (its too easy to only raise the complaints)

Changes I like.

My first serious warrior experience

I haven't played Angband for the last few years (kids). I thought I'd learn v4 with a simple approach, and try a warrior. And, as (IIRC) Derakon is often touting Half-Trolls as the best choice, I...

Angry Never spawn some spell books

Ever since selling items in town was turned off, finding spell books has been a mixed bag.

Previously, regardless of what class I was, regardless which books I had already found, at least finding...

Bug in disable traps?

I'm only playing my second, serious character in v4 game, so this may be lack of understanding of how traps work, but it seems odd to me that a Rod of Disable Traps appears to remove traps, but then...

Bonuses at level 20, 40 etc

Am I right that Rangers get an extra shot per round at level 20, and again at 40?

Are there any other bonuses like this in the game, for other classes?

You were wearing White Dragon Scale Mail.

randSpellbooks

I was thinking about spells today, and how I tend to use a small subset of all the spells available to my class. (at least for 95% of the time)

Maybe it would be a fun challenge to survive on a...

It's also mean to taunt people with the availability of dead horses and not any means to flog them. Perhaps the local BDSM store will have some flogging devices? I guess that's a Whip (+0, +0) on...

Silly idea for expert players (not me)

Randarts keeps the game varied for long-term players. (I've never used it myself)

The greatest cause of death for junior players is lack-of-knowledge-of-what-can-kill-you.

You have 100% Saving Throw with a wisdom of 18/130. I figured it would take close to 18/200 for a perfect saving throw. Are there class/racial modifiers affecting this too?
