Your consumables are fine, though if you aren't playing no-recall then I'd get more CCW, just for clearing status ailments. You also want a lot of Phase Door. 700 damage vs. evil is also more than...

Sounds like it's worth experimenting with. As a "safety" you might consider declaring the player's tile to always be lit if they have a light source, regardless of its strength level. You can gloss...

In order for hunger to be meaningful, it has to change player behavior in an interesting way. Just increasing the mechanical consequences isn't enough if the player just says "OK, now I have to...

It used to be that the One Ring always showed as "a Plain Gold Ring". If we're going to fix anything, that's the fix I'd like to see. :) I don't have a problem with the player being able to say "wait...

Phase Spiders now sound like reskinned Blink Dogs. I'm also a little sad that we're losing driders and both kinds of aranea, which means there's no proper "magical spider" aside from Phase Spiders...
