There were lots of bugs with friendly fire in Pos, but I thought I'd managed to fix them all, apart from a known issue with friendly psycho-spears sometimes hitting the player. I'm not sure if...

The last ring winner is Aver's from PosChengband 7.0.2; and the only changes to rings since then should make them easier; so ring ought to be winnable.

I'll look into the skillmaster thing, thanks.
