Well, sort of. You'd need to hack the pref file, keeping only the terrain data, and leave everything else alone.

Yeah, I mean Gorlim. Of course. Castsmir doesn't cast often enough to be dangerous.

The full Android port already has V 4.2.2, Frog (Selmiak), Sil-Q 1.4.2, and NPP 0.4.1 and 0.5.4

It *might* be reasonable to give a minimum of 1 spell from the start. Beyond that, I don't see why this even matters. If your INT is that bad, you won't be able to cast more than the very basic (i.e....

"Score" in many variants is roughly proportional to EXP divided by total moves. But once you hit CL 50, experience is no longer counted, since it has no real value.

@Grotug--
True enough. But if you are more than a few squares away, you are safe for one breath. I don't actually know what the minimum distance is, but 10 squares is surely enough.
