Hi.

For what it's worth, I still feel like a lot of the JLE monsters don't fit, and it bugs me how good Amulets of Trickery are. Back in the old days, you wore an Amulet of Wisdom +6 because the...

Good lord, you should at least have kept it for the Sauron and Morgoth fights. Being able to do effectively 21x damage with bolts (or 24x with Slay Evil bolts) is [i]ridiculous[/b]. Say the bow and...

How about hedge wizard?

I will also admit some fondness for black nights and death knights.

Yeah, they're not harmless. It'll be interesting to see how much the screaming yeeks change the balance of those fights. I'm just saying that it's not necessarily an "avoid at all costs until later"...

Congrats on switching class to ranger.

Or if you already were a ranger, I guess now you're a machinegun.

Regarding Orfax and Boldor, it really depends on the character. The defining trait of yeeks is that they just don't have much health. It's definitely possible for the melee-oriented classes to have...

Yeah, Fundin should stick around more or less as-is for "game mythology" reasons, not so much setting mythology.

As for the existing classes, some thoughts:

Didn't wobbly spend a lot of time on this very subject? I suggest talking with them before you dedicate too much effort, just to ensure you don't retread already-covered ground.

I would say rather, you want separation of logic and data. That is, there's the data, which is in one place, and then there's the stuff that operates on that data, which is elsewhere. But they can...

It's not out of the question that a warrior could kill Morgoth with a bow -- they're pretty good archers, if obviously not as good as rangers. But it's also absolutely doable to kill Morgoth in melee...

Disenchantment resistance is not a requirement for the final fights. Artifacts have disenchantment resistance. It's not perfect; IIRC 2/3rds of the time they avoid losing pluses. But that should be...

I have absolutely done this. Indeed I have flat-out forgotten my stash and just merrily climbed down the stairs, only to immediately realize I just lost a lot of useful consumables.

I always kind of liked the old wereworm. It's like a mini-Nightworm. Could we have something like it back, maybe as a snake?

I'd be fine with your proposed change, wobbly. Weapon weights have always been fairly absurd. Swords don't weigh 10 pounds (nor mauls 30!), and if they did nobody would be swinging them very quickly...
