 Forum: AAR December 2, 2018, 22:32 Replies: 2 Views: 814 Posted By bulian trying 4.13 Hello, Its been several years since I played any Angband (2011 was my last log-in here, circa v3.3 IIRC), and I just gave Morgoth a beating using a Dunaden warrior. It's great that the game is...

Could someone explain the effect of CON, hitdice, and level on total HP? I'm sure there is a simple formula. Naively I think it would be something like: HP = CON_index*avg_HP(CL,hit_die), where...

I decided a while ago that the numeric values don't tell you too much. The most relevant ones for information are probably "fighting" and "shooting" as fizzix pointed out, but if you have probed...

That's OK, I'm always amazed at how many threads I see your name beside as the last poster whenever I check OOOK. I kind of envisioned the problem occurring closer to DL80+, when big breathers...

I've been wondering about this a little bit - can someone extrapolate on how stats distribution will be useful for the new affix type? It seems it may be difficult to compare distributions of holy...

I think I mentioned that in my original post, so I'll interpret the response as "play, find out, and report back whether there is an issue." It may take some time but I will play, find out, and...

I'll trust the older players this change is good to limit power of ranged attacks, but I'm concerned about limited capacity for consumables in ironman games. Has anyone played ironman with the...

Two quick comments: 1) Magnate - your egos look really cool. 2) Re experience, implementation of XP penalties for the easy races (high elf, dunedain) has always bugged me a little bit due to...

Should minor AC bonuses be reexamined, I think bonuses on a few other items should be revisited. For example, "Magi, defender, and holy avenger weapons come to mind as having laughable AC bonuses. ...

I would consider overall artifact rarity to be a related but separate topic compared to this one. Sure, this may be a minor bug but I would still consider it a bug. If either item generation...

Work is consumingly busy currently. So it does, so it does. I would be curious whether this is the case? If this were the case then its probably...

This is a part question part minor bug and also a sign that I'm procrastinating again. Do items such as Ingwe or _dispel evil do damage to monsters you can see (e.g. in lighted area) or in line...

A few thoughts: The potential melee damage Morgoth does is larger than when he casts manastorm. 2x earthquake with crushes can do 700 hp to an unlucky character, so 700 hp is my threshold for...

I realized at some point that gains above 18 are somewhat random and typically > "10". So, if Con is at 17 and the player...
