Playing without spoilers is actually quite fun, as long as the key mechanics aren't too obscure, which appears to be the case here.

Nonetheless, arigato, Paul-san, for the offer.

Ok this is a bit spooky. As posted earlier in this thread, I hadn't seen the One since my first serious game of Angband more than ten years ago. A week ago, my DajAngband competition character finds...

I'm not particularly concerned with the blink spell for any class, simply because the scrolls are always cheap and available in large quantities. All classes can carry them, and throw them away in...

I think Atarlost's proposal sounds like a very good compromise - certainly worth testing. I also think Eddies suggestion of disconnected stairs combined with a decent number of t-level scrolls in the...

In my experience, Greater Vaults (not specifically GCV's, which just happen to be the most lucrative targets) are very common below lvl90 - I would guess maybe 1 in 10 levels or thereabouts. Even...

In my very first game of Angband in which I got below dlvl5 (~vanilla, circa 1998). I was playing a half-elf ranger. Why half elf? Because I misread the start screen and thought I was picking Hi Elf...

I'm not denying that the shape and rules for Anf58 will affect art generation. I'm just not convinced that the effect is that big. Have you tested the rate of art generation with autoscum off in...

The (very strong) impression I get from playing many *bands, with autoscum on and off, is that it only really matters below ~lvl50. Deeper than that level, if relatively few arts have been generated...
