Keep the text file and wait to post. Seriously. I'd wager that more than half the community is ignoring your threads because they get updated so frequently with such low-density content.

Digging and abuse of LOS should allow anyone with ball spells to kill any stationary enemy, given enough patience. It may not always suffice if you only have straight-line ranged attacks, though.

NPP has a lot of uniques that are "flee the level immediately if you are not capable of taking them in a stand-up fight" caliber.

In Vanilla, monsters cannot cast without being able to see you. This is not the case in some variants, where they'll use splash damage to hit you when they cannot see your tile. Remember that LOS is...

Well, like I said, Sauron doesn't have the Ring. That's the entire motivation behind the LotR trilogy: he wants his ring back.

If you want to link the Ring to a monster, give Smeagol a 1 in 1...

They're worth fighting to get rid of them, so you stop running into them all the time. Similar reasoning applies to Saruman.

I like the idea of being able to drain lesser undead for some benefit to the caster. What if you could use them for healing? I feel like that would do a good job of making them non-threats in the...

Oangband-style combat makes the bonuses be a multiplier of the dice, but it's also famously opaque so it's hard to figure out how a given number changes your actual damage done. But no, I don't think...

You get this at level 30 (not 40, Sky).


Per-shot bow damage is (damage bonus on bow + damage bonus on ammo + dice roll on ammo) * (multiplier on bow + any applicable slay/brand).

By that logic, hobbits should clearly be your fourth race. Small and unassuming, not notably wise/smart/strong, but possessed of great willpower in the face of difficulty.

Zephyr Hounds are Angband originals, as is Qlzqqlzuup. I think the elemental lords (Waldern, Vargo, Ariel, Quaker) are also Angband originals. Icky things and quylthulgs are Moria originals.
