Ehh, if you have access to town to begin with, then what's the harm in generating items as if they're at the player's recall depth? They could just recall, read the scroll, and recall again to...

This isn't entirely fair. Status ailments have periodically vacillated between being useless and being too strong. There was a period in the 3.x days when carrying wands of Slow Monster was...

Yep. I've played the game (back in the 3.x days) with all items ID'd from the start, and felt that such a change was a net positive for the game. I haven't pushed that stance very hard here because...

It's been true for a long while. I believe the original motivation was to discourage savescumming of drops. However, I'm also pretty sure that a specific hack was put in place, to ensure that an...

Oh geeze, I hadn't thought of that. What happens if someone summons uniques? Do they disappear from the level they were on?

Oh lordy, this should be an interesting discussion. :)

For my part, it's been a long time since I played without forced-descent, so I assume this won't make much difference aside from functionally...

That's correct. The effect is not noticeable.

Way back in the day (several reworks of the melee system ago), I remember finding some full plate armor with a young mage. We're talking before 500'...

Every enemy is a monster; that's just the blanket term for something you can kill. Animals are listed as "natural" in the monster memory; likewise, evil/giant/orc/undead/dragon/demon are also listed...

Maybe let them boost all of STR/DEX/CON? Or alternatively, make them show up earlier before you're likely to have found a competitor; it could possibly be interesting having an incentive to wear...

Being surprised by an enemy you didn't know is there. Even if you do have FA, that can be quite the shock and can throw your carefully-laid plans awry. Which is (usually) fun.
