If you're going from Caspanion to Thalkettoth, then your failure rates should go up because your INT is lower. If you're going from Thalkettoth to Caspanion and seeing your failure rates go up, then...

People disagree about the exact definition, but pretty much it just comes down to damage. You want to be doing as much damage per turn as possible. The faster you deal damage, the shorter the fight...

If I recall correctly, the limit is 20 pounds for mages and 30 pounds for other arcane casters. Your SP also gets cut much more drastically if you're an arcane caster and you wear gloves that do not...

It wouldn't surprise me if modern compilers are capable of saying "Ah, you're invoking this simple function here, we can just inline it" and get the same performance as a macro. In any case, the...

What if Escaping had no stat modifiers, and the "terrified" flag automatically conveyed +X speed? That would effectively mean that the two rings would not stack.

It's always bugged me that those...

I'm pretty sure I've seen ladder wins with character levels lower than 40. At level 40 with max CON you get 40*12.5=500 HP from CON, which means you need 2.5 HP per level from your hit dice to be out...

You forgot the little courtyard for the townspeople and Farmer Maggot to spawn in, which is of course separated from the rest of the town by a pile of rubble. :)

Maybe call it "Remove Hunger"? Doesn't really help with taking your satiation down but it's more clearly less filling than "Satisfy".

It's not that speed over +20 isn't worthwhile, it just becomes harder to balance against other bonuses. The reason why +20 is so significant is that with temporary haste up that gets you to +30,...

"min(15, 20)" means take the lower of whichever the two values is (it is choosing the minimum value from the provided options). So the item's minimum level would be 15.

There's a lot of reasons why on-the-fly declarations is the standard these days. The biggest one IMO is that it allows you to scope a variable to just the block of code it is used in. For example, in...
