Merging the themes of noise and keyboards: I have a classic Dell mechanical keyboard (AT101W), but given my nocturnal habits, housemates weren't happy about all that clicking noise. So I've bought an...

Well, I don't know, is +4 to all stats packed with some pretty good combat bonuses better than immunity and ESP? :-)

Good idea, but element names in resists and brand descriptions are different (electricity and lightning, fire and flames, cold and frost, poison and venom). So we can either unify them, at least in...

Just to clarify, I was talking about effects without rDisen (and fighting Tarrasque without rDisen is obviously not a very good idea). Compare to nexus: stat scramble effect is 1 in 7, you have a...

I haven't set my mind on "advanced" disenchantment effects yet, but there is something I want to point out: there is currently no difference in effects between breath of chaos drake and Tarrasque, or...

Uniform distribution of integer values from 0 to N - 1. Like dN - 1. This roll is compared to 3*AC/4.

Yes, it's the first number.

No. I think, "not perceptible by the player" is a better...

The sound of the giant white centipede dying with full volume in the headphones almost gave me a heart attack :-) I've never played Angband with sound and barely remembered it has an option for it.

IIRC intelligence stops affecting fail rates and mana pool at 18/200 (as well as constitution stops affecting HP, not so sure about other stats).

Failure rate is affected by non-blessed edged weapons, but I can't find any effects of cumber_armor flag in the code except mana penalty. Obviously I can miss something.
