A Light Crossbow from my current Angband.live! character. The damage output is huge - even just ordinary bolts do almost 200 points. I shudder to think what a branded Seeker bolt is going to be...

Extra text not being cleared in menu selections

After a long time away, I've started looking at the most recent SilQ on angband.live and I'm noticing that the text menus are a little bit messed up. I admit this is a relatively minor problem, and...

The Lag Monster on angband.live hasn't killed me yet, although it has definitely come close to it on several occasions.

I'm assuming the plan is to have 2 more in this series (i.e. Ranger and...

Have to agree with Ingwe here. Half Troll is not a great choice for a character with Advanced Spellcasting: it's hard for them to get 18/200. Admittedly Wis is better than Int, but it's still hard....

I think humans are a challenge (human paladins start with only two blows, instead of three for example), but I also think that the 4.2 changes have made paladins harder to play. In previous...

Maybe "sprite"? I admit the word looks a little too much like "spirit", but would be an improvement.

I felt the Priest and the Warrior played pretty similarly to pre-4.2. The game is just generically harder with the new monsters, which I think is a good thing. Although I do find the gorgons to be...

I agree with what's already been said: the advantage of, say, a Drain Life wand is not so much the damage that it does, as it is the damage that you don't take. This is no different than any other...
