Why not buff stinking cloud, making it a genuinely effective remover of annoying stuff? Just about everything dangerous already is resistant or immune to poison, so even if we double or triple the...

As long as the spellcaster doesn't retreat when the player tries to approach, I'd be fine with this. Summoning monsters that step back to maintain distance while still actively casting stuff rather...

I still think the answer is to remove all restrictions on stair generation--let the stairs go to every tile within the connected dungeon area with equal probability.

The restrictions on stair...

Yes, but it's far more common to throw weapons or flasks of oil rather than ammo. The throw prompt should default to throwing from inventory and allow you to page over to throw from quiver if needed,...

As long as the vault is sealed, you can safely simulate this by taking your esp-granting gear off for a turn.

Perhaps. It would be nice to be able to do something more subtle such as making *slay evil* a 2.5x bonus (stronger than slay evil, 2x), but the Angband code notoriously uses integer arithmetic for...

Nothing. Digging stinks for non-dwarf with a STR as low as 13. Definitely try to carry either ring of digging or wand of stone to mud. If you aren't playing no-recall, check the town shops often; you...

It's been argued that if you don't happen to kill the low-level uniques when you're in their power range, you should deliberately avoid killing them until the very end so that when Morgoth hits...

So in other words, the real problem is a flaw in randart generation, in that it either puts unremovable curses on things that shouldn't have them, or more likely distributes the property version of...

That's correct. Creating a derivative work such as Angband requires permission of the copyright holder, and the game's being non-commercial does not necessarily suffice for a fair use exemption. In...

As I recall, the idea was to make it so that the player's starting location (which is usually an upstair) was never in the middle of a group of hounds or the like. I suggested at the time that the...

Wearing something with a Silmaril? That would be the Necklace of the Dwarves, which is already severely underpowered for what it is. If wearing that artifact into battle with Morgoth had any...

Hey, it's better to find bugs now than to have to rapidly release a 4.2.1. Of course, that will probably happen anyway, as there are always more bugs to find, but still, catching them in the dev...

Ironically, as low-res as those screenshots have been compressed to, the tiles version is the more readable. This is a very unusual case; mostly tiles stink for screenshots.

Based on the tiles,...

Also remember that the DSM can be activated for a breath attack. In 4.1.x, that'll be a cone breath, which isn't nearly as effective as the old ball spell, but can still help you with clearing out...

At shallow depths, you'll sometimes find vaults that are all but unguarded. Once you get deeper, vaults will tend to have hordes of nasty uniques along with the juicy treasure. So whenever you find a...
