This is the blue sky thinking I was hoping for. Naturally cold hounds will be measured in Celcius and acid hounds can join the pH scale

Metric Angband

Any thoughts on making Angband metric? At the moment we're dealing in feet and pounds and that surely confuses a lot of players (like me). Could it not be a birth option to play with metres and...

So Angband gets it right! Us Angband scholars can all give ourselves an undeserved pat on the back. At least snaga is canon, even if there's no Bill Ferny to kill. It's a shame, because of all...

A lot of the non-canon texts in Angband come from MERP (like the names of the Nazgul). I think the idea of snagas as weaker orcs is fine, even if it's not strictly canon. It's close enough.

The vanilla era stretches all of the three ages, there's no limiting factor there. I agree that a massive battering ram would be slightly out of place in a dungeon, but no more so than Old Man Willow...

Canon missing from the game

Bill Ferny - unique native to dlvl 5-10. He can summon rogues. The only character in the game who is susceptible to apple throw attacks (wouldn't that be a fun feature)

Exactly this. I only occasionaly notice the title but I'm constantly aware of the number.

I don't see how adding titles adds anything to the gameplay or even the role-playing aspect of the game....

What's the cheesiest race/class combo?

I'm currently playing a dwarf priest and life feels cheesy. Boost your Wisdom stats in the dlvl20-30s and you're literally orbing everything to death at will. The huge ball splash damage from clvl30...

But you can see the activation chance when you 'e' look at your inventory. Is it around 50 per cent? A half troll warrior is going to have pretty much the lowest activation success in Angband

I think this is only apparent when playing as a rogue. They have such a high + to throw that at the start of the game they can throw better than they bow.

Wouldn't that be the equivalent to a level 30 ranger? That's fairly wow. Coupled with a sling of power and some branded ammo then it's a very powerful boost.
