An enemy with a leap attack would be fun, I agree. Not sure that a player with a leap attack would be useful, except as an escape, because I would rather enemies come to me. Also, I dont trust the...

I wouldnt. A few things Ive learned about Angband:

1. There will always be more (and better) loot.

2. There will always be more (and easier) experience

3. Death is forever.

So I almost...

This would also make it easier to see if the monster is in line of sight, which isnt always obvious, at least not to me.

This is I think big, because it eliminates a potential source of human error: forgetting to keep your speed above 30 against Morgoth. Its all too easy in that fight to miss the fact that your speed...

Pretty sure Ive seen drops from single combat. Ive also had endgame uniques never drop anything, so I think you just got unlucky.

That being said, I think "no loot" would be a *great* drawback to...

Well, Im a very new player. Only been playing for about a year. Found the game when I bought Tales of Maj'Eyal on GOG, enjoyed the game and learned about Angband when I read about TOME4 on TV Tropes....

I mean, it's called "Drain Life" so why not have it drain max HP?

Then, it'd be freaking terrifying. If you wanted to be *really* nasty you could also have your enemy regain as much health as...

I wasn't disagreeing that recharges shouldn't fail catastrophically sometimes, I was disagreeing with the idea that wands should be used "only in emergencies." I don't see any reason why we can't...

So long as it's an option. "roguelike" vs. "sane-rogulike" or something. The current keyset is baked into my muscle memory, and I would be mildly cranky if I had to relearn it.

I haven't tried this change in Angband, but I do have some experience with this dice-heavy style of damage from Sil. My experiences from there make me a bit wary of this change. The highly variable...

I'll agree that making enemies harder to reason about is a pretty serious concern. The biggest roadblock I run into with TOME4 is that enemies are incredibly hard to reason about, especially rares...

It's good for the same thing having a ton of different damage types and resistances is good for. It makes equipment trade-offs richer, and ensures that one stat is not All Powerful. A lot of the...

True, and I used it quite a bit in my 4.1 priest win, but it's just taking up space in the *paladin* spell list, which is what my criticism was aimed at.

I think leaving it as-is for priests is...

It did, and it was pretty useless then too for a paladin. Slightly more useful for a priest, because a priest has more SP and better fail rates sooner, but still not great. I t kind of went unnoticed...

I've been lurking on this forum for a bit now. I think I've been playing Angband for about 10 months or so, and I just had my first victory. I figured I'd write a bragging about...
