Don't underestimate the "risky for CL1 noobs"...

Don't underestimate the "risky for CL1 noobs" factor. I loved the fact that I quickly learned that, as compared to more modern games, EVEN TOWNS aren't safe in Angband. It's a good tone-setter for...

I think part of the problem is unlimited range plus skew (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skewness). The problem (anecdotally, I haven't looked at the code) is that the mean and variance are both fine,...

Mostly agreed. I think the situations where you resist a status but it doesn't come with a damage resistance can safely be called "immunity", though. And I don't think it would be horrible to...

I really like the idea of DEX only increasing blows for particularly light weapons, and STR only affecting blows for heavy ones (where "light" and "heavy" are of course relative to various things).

As an intermediate player, I don't think hunger by itself is "interesting", but all the "little" things together are. It's not that I've liked the times I've died from hunger, but I sort of like the...

I rather prefer #2. Knowing immediately that a monster is unique is less important to the new player, I'd argue, than knowing that it's just different than they've ever seen before. (After all,...

Wasn't the tone of the previous purple powwows trending toward reverting the change (perhaps in favor of giving uniques colors similar to their old colors but that are never used for non-uniques)? I...

My reading of the original question was "how do I play such that I'm playing ironman" in the most straightforward sense. And isn't the answer "turn on the 'birth_ironman' option in preferences and...

I'm going to disagree just because it doesn't seem right without someone doing so.

Not that I have any basis for my disagreement.

Gotcha. I apologize. Clearly my information is a bit out of date -- I haven't had a chance to play since right after 3.1.1 came out, and didn't realize there'd been a bug fix release. I still had...

It's actually been a problem for a little while, I think, that you have to choose between the nightlies (which, as is often states here, can be unstable and/or unbalanced) and the last release. The...

Agreed...but not just for the game-of-shopping reason. Why penalize newbies, the people who are most likely to actually spend lots of gold in the midgame, by taking some of the gold supply away? ...

Why not just have an unlimited amount of all staples, and make all consumables that are ever for sale staples? Would this really be unbalancing?

Do people really like the flavor of having different shopkeepers? I'd almost rather there just be one for each store. I mean, there can be a random name or race, but as far as race modifiers (if...

If you'd be inclined to wield the weapon under the current system, why couldn't you also wield it under buzzkill's? When you find the scroll, you can then uncurse the wielded item.

But it also exists for free, by waiting on Level 1. Why would we (those of us who play without regard for turncount) pay more for something we can do for free?
