NPP has this, essentially: traps that work at a distance. It makes carrying rods of disarming absolutely necessary.

Sure an (any) IDE works better. So do syntax-aware editors. But if you just want to dip your toes, it's not worth setting up an environment.

No, there was no blow lost in v3. Some races got 4 blows (HE, Dunadan, and Half-orc with no points in CON.) It's possible that hobbit got no more than 2.

If you cut blows by one,
1. what does it do to +blows weapons?
2. Multiplier may need adjusting, since full casters are already pretty strongly penalized here.

At the very least, bring back the extra attack (and reduce max blows to 5.) The 6th blow is currently a mirage for HT and Dwarf, and isn't easy to get with many endgame weapons for other races.

Hurt by an element means it takes 33% more damage. The big ones are Hydras and frost, and vampires (and some other undead) and fire.

Then your bow wasn't good enough. A good bow will do over 100 damage per turn, which is enough for Beorn with a bunch of ?phase doors.

Aggravate wakes up all monsters in a 200' radius, not just in LOS. Shriek is even worse: it's a 400' radius, and LOS monsters are basted as well.
Edit: fixed radii

Taratol also has electricity immunity, which can be very valuable as a swap. Pazuzu in particular becomes a trivial target. But also blue dragon pits are easy, with no risk to wands or rods.

That is seriously unbalanced, unless you are recreating autoscum, where the level feeling is a combination of monster and object importance. Even then, it was unbalanced, but not as badly.
