Although it wouldn't really be enforceable unless everyone were required to play on angband.live, I'd kind of like to sort winners by number of attempts.

In most variants you don't need artifacts in any slot. O might be an exception to that. There appear to be no artifactless O winners in the ladder.

Of course how long you spend on one level influences how likely you are to die on the next, but the basic point, that probability of death per dungeon level is far more important than probability of...

Minimising risk is the key to the game, but it's vital to understand how to measure risk: chance of dying per dungeon level, rather than per turn. If you go down the staircase and never come back up...

Thrall isn't really that much more challenging than non-thrall. It's just different. Starting with telepathy goes a long way to compensating for your fragility as a first level character in dangerous...

That seems like a bit of a wasted opportunity. The nice thing about comps is the opportunity to experiment with things which are unique to a particular variant.

There's a bit of a tension between race/class combinations which are good overall and those which are good for new players in the early game. My fear is that people lose 20 @'s over the course of an...

I hope this point doesn't get lost in the rest of this thread. Angband is unlike most games that I've played in that it seems to teach new players terrible habits. I had the exact same experience,...

An interesting point. I guess that's partly a question of how much "realism" you want to incorporate. If you can see the glowing lava from a distance then you should also see monsters silhouetted...

Farmer Maggot is a wanker.

The town needs a better class of unique. I playtested this one for a while. He makes visits to town a bit more interesting.
