I snatch up all the *Destruction* scrolls I can find. They have a 0% fail rate, and are much more common than staves of *Destruction*, so I like having them as a panic button. Otherwise yeah I ignore...

The Thancs are great for throwing as well. My Blackguard especially can get a lot of mileage out of throwing a Thanc or two at the start of battle.

So, some weapons have the "blessed" property. Paladins and clerics get additonal combat bonuses when they use a blessed weapon.

One thing I like about Sil that maybe Angband could draw inspiration from is how different the weapon types feel. A short sword feels very different from a spear, which feels very different from a...

I don't really like the idea of feelings (after all, sometimes what you REALLY need is a stack of CCW, and level feelings can't really help with that). However, I'd be down with a very vague item...

I feel like this could be reasonable if we tweaked Morgoth's AI so that he didn't always know immediately where the player was and made a beeline for them. Maybe he spawned awake and searching, and...
