I've been playing a lot of necromancers too. I tend to get to the point where it starts to feel like a decent spellcaster, with four or occasionally five spellbooks, then lose to some bad luck or...

Donating and buying back spent wands/staffs

Giving wands and staves with zero or few charges to the magic shop seems to top them up when they're in the store's inventory, but only sometimes – I can't figure out what circumstances it works...

Bug: vampire strike and objects on ground

If you jump to a square by casting the "vampire strike" spell, and there is an object on the ground, you don't get the full description of that object when you 'x' or 'E': it'll show up as "a Short...

No, it comes up often enough to be annoying. I can disarm it with click, or by stepping off and giving a direction, so it's definitely with trapped chests. Did you try it with the roguelike keyset?

I'd dug a zig-zag shaped anti-summoning corridor and planted glyphs of warding on the last three squares. I dropped an artefact - the Ball-and-Chain of Fundin, maybe? - on the last square and the...
