Angband is an international day, after all, so US holidays dont make sense. That said, townspeople should certainly come bearing gifts on Sept 22.

As it is Festivus, how come there are no Easter egg monsters for today? And speaking of Easter, what about easter bunnies? Maybe they should breed in town?

The thing is, a pure dive involves avoiding things, not going out of your way to kill them. I had a similar problem with blackguard--detouring to wipe out a bunch of lost orcs and the like.

I try to make sure I can kill Bullroarer, often with 10 !oil, a few ?phase, and perhaps a ?blessing. He is both a significant risk and a valuable target.
Smeagol I just ignore.
