I feel like if we want to encourage people to descend faster, sticky curses are the exact opposite of what we want.

Honestly, I think it was a good thing Angband removed sticky curses, and I don't...

I'm a little bit leery about giving massive penalties to Device skill (some penalties are probably fine). My biggest issue with the Berserker in Frogcomposband is that you can do only two things:...

I am super excited by this. Barbarians are some of my favorite classes in RPGs (I recently had my first ADOM win with one in fact), and I've always been a little bit sad that Angband didn't really...

Funny, your thoughts on Sil vs Angband are the exact opposite of mine
Ive beaten Angband a few times, and I think the farthest Ive gotten in Sil was 450 ft. Usually I die around 250 to 300 ft. That...

I was imagining that only Rogues can throw potions offensively, and they have a high device skill, so youd have to make sure the potions do something different from wands.

One option is that you...
