Hm, probably best for it to trigger if it would do any damage at all (especially if inventory damage from lava still exists). Not really so much for this particular case but in general to avoid...

Oangband actually had a very simple and elegant fix for *thancs not seeming special enough. In O they are dice-boosted to 1d5. Not really a game-changer, even with the way damage works in O, but it...

Layaway hasn't broken those variants that have it. It would make shopping more interesting, which is the only thing aside from removing it that could possibly make it less bad.

I'm pretty sure there's an option called "cheat death" still around? Is that broken or was it removed or something?

Well, you've learned a valuable lesson about Angband. The dungeon hates you and wants you dead, and will frequently trick you by subverting an apparently reasonable expectation. Another lesson is...

Accuracy on ranged weapons is pretty handy on a Paladin, since they're usually quite terrible with them.

Keep the best crossbow you find around, in case you find good bolts. Until then, use...

If you're playing with connected stairs then yes, I suppose you could do that. This is one reason why I generally prefer playing without connected stairs, since that way you either burn a consumable...

You seem to keep putting yourself in nasty situations. Why were you at 1/3 of your max hp standing in front of a Patriarch? Why did you fight the Master Lich? I imagine you're going to fight the...

Yeah liches are bad news. Run away. Note that they drain charges, which may make running away inordinately hard, but you should have reasonably reliable Portal at this point at least.

If there are monsters who make you afraid a lot, carry a couple potions of Heroism to deal with it - they're a handy buff and prevent fear. You're a Paladin, too, which means you should have remove...

200 damage is barely more than what you do in melee, and it only works on monsters who don't resist fire anyway. It's not worth keeping around.

Amulet of Regen. Wisdom +3 will lower some failrates and give you more max SP, but Regen makes you regain SP faster, which is more important for you. And the extra HP regen is great. The only thing...
