+9 speed ring at dl 23!

So I was a little bummed to see a +7 speed ring in the black market for 64K gold, at dl 20. But soon enough, it was obsolescent:

Dropped by a Blackguard at 1150 feet (level 23)

You gotta kill those master yeeks quicker. They were completely messing you up from a distance. With them scattered everywhere, ?phase was no kind of help.

But the race is *Dunadan*. That is usually easy to play, except for the lack of infravision. If Dunadan Blackguard is difficult, then the whole class is a bit out of balance.

Lich doesn't have much HP, so you can kill it easily with archery. (It drains DEX and charges.) Higher liches have lots of HP and just aren't worth the side effects.

Old man willow really needs to be scarier. Summoning, and a short range distance attack, whipping with branches. Maybe an aura of fear or sleep.

Not android per se. The issue is that I am running in a *primitive* VM app with no browser, just basic command line. As far as I can tell, its files are not accessible from the main OS.

You might take a look at how other variants do this now. The display code is a lot more mature and portable, and you can pretty much drop your code in and not worry about it.
