I used being able to kill the Tarasque as a similar gauge of power recently. I really needed a few more ?Banish before the final fight though. Luckily got through it relying on banish evil when the...

How about a message like, "The Horned Reaper tries to trample the novice ranger, but fails"?

I kind of like them. Maybe it's the monster description. It amuses me to think about one summoning a vrock to attack me, then squashing that same vrock because it's in the way. They're pure...

I tried to take down Azriel with a Paladin who went on to win, but had to bail on that fight after an early nether breath. I'd say you're in the later stages of the endgame if you can kill him.

Breaking Angband down into early, mid, and endgame

I might go with 1st stat gain potion starts the mid-game, and the end-game starts when you have 550+ HP, (a whole in basic 4 + rPoison might call for an exception there) plus perm speed of at least...

That sounds like an interesting idea, but too much of a departure from the spellbook system for Vanilla for me. The basic 4 books have their roots deep in Moria.

Probably enough of an idea to...

If warriors can get max blows with MoD, I probably should have gotten my dex up higher with my warrior then. IIRC, I never got more than 5 with Ulmo, which I would have been quite content to melee...

What weapons are better than the Glaive of Pain?

I realized just how brutal this weapon is when I saw it came within 6 points of damage to the MoD of Slay Evil I had when it came to evil monsters. MoD was way in front when it came to undead &...

LOL - The other thing I noticed was that my three winners were all female characters. I usually alternate male/female for variety, but I wonder if that means I take better care of the girls.

I've got a punishing melee weapon in my MoD, but without sustain Str, I'd have a hard time going hand to hand with Morgoth. However, I also have a good collection of slay evil ammo and x2 shooting...

Increasing the value of Cha

The thread on reducing the value of Con made me think of this idea.

Would it be too disruptive to balance to move some or all the effect Wis has on saving throws to Cha? It's probably more of a...

YACD - can't make up my mind on equipment

I'm sure I've got some stuff I can get rid of though. For example, Nain, rDis is nice, but I could carry Calris if I really need it. The -4 Wis on Melkor makes it unlikely I'd use it, but it does...

That makes sense to me, if I had two, I would feel completely different. Of course, that means if I do decide to get rid of it, the RNG will immediately send another my way just to torment me.

Rod of healing, not as useful as I expected.

I generally assume it applies to all uniques. They can get a significant chunk of health back if you have to 'port away from a fight to rest.

For my $.02, I think level feelings should be a measure of how unusual the level is. Monsters you've never seen, monsters you've rarely fought, items you've never seen, pits and vaults, etc.
