Cheat Death, which is still available in the newest version, is a better way to do this.

Oh, for sure in that sense. I was more talking about the bias that causes Sky to suggest that reports of (perceived) problems with the RNG are very common, even though they're really not, though they...

As Pete Mack notes, there are actually two cognitive biases occurring here. The first is the one that convinces people that failing a 5% spell 7 times in a row during gameplay is a statistically...

Congrats on your win, and welcome back to the game.

Yeah, having all four immunities is not particularly important, and a Paladin doesn't really gain that much from a bit of extra wisdom. Looking...

Well, since this post refrained from any personal attacks on me or anyone else, I will respond to it.

A fair point. I think I may have confused my personal formative experiences with a general truth. I do think there needs to be some antagonism from the part of the game itself towards the player, but...

Oangband hasn't been developed in maybe a decade? The UI is garbage. It leans heavily on being irritating (item destruction through immunity, for example), which I think is a worse emotion to invoke...

Why is Angband fun?

So, I kind of suggested I have some (stolen) thoughts in another thread, on this particular topic. Near as I can tell, I got these concepts from an episode of Roguelike Radio, but there are a lot of...

I have some (largely stolen) thoughts about where replayability and fun comes from in a roguelike if we want to start a new thread with a less vague title and a more productive agenda.

Oangband actually had a very simple and elegant fix for *thancs not seeming special enough. In O they are dice-boosted to 1d5. Not really a game-changer, even with the way damage works in O, but it...

Layaway hasn't broken those variants that have it. It would make shopping more interesting, which is the only thing aside from removing it that could possibly make it less bad.

I'm pretty sure there's an option called "cheat death" still around? Is that broken or was it removed or something?

Accuracy on ranged weapons is pretty handy on a Paladin, since they're usually quite terrible with them.

200 damage is barely more than what you do in melee, and it only works on monsters who don't resist fire anyway. It's not worth keeping around.
