Kavlax and Castamir the Usurper are the first really dangerous uniques, that can easily take you before you get a useful turn. Castamir does huge water damage that stuns and confuses, and can easily...

@will--
It's impossible to guess what went wrong, beyond the basic knowledge of a memory error. You need a diff of the code compared to the original. However, you can be sure the error isn't in the...

Archeron-
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's quite good.

That's what _Tele is for, until you get ESP and/or detection. Unless you can reliably kill them in a single turn, they are too dangerous to fight.

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....

@Awoowolf
Farming the mid 20s is a mug's game, since stat potions are native to DL30. Extra time spent earlier than there is pretty much wasted.

Ouch. I would not bother with !RL until down to DL 47 or so--especially with Morgoth at 1 star.

"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.

@Sky
And I have said before that randarts are unbalanced, if +5 speed isn't worth a sou. Yes, I prefer Dwarven, but I have used +speed, and even balance DSM of Elvenkind in a recent game.

0.5.4:
Weapon base damage is off, increasing with dice. A main gauche is shown as 2 (instead of 3) and a 6d4 artifact is calculated as 12 instead of 15.

It's published by github, and yes it works or did when I tried it some years ago. I also used the PowerShell plug in for pulling updates and the like.
