These days, I'm curious how a neural net would take to Angband. (Though really one ought to start with Rogue, as it's a simpler problem, and there's a well-known bot that was very good at it.)

I just poked at this, and it looks like the spell’s message eats the rest of the input. If the first spell doesn’t give a message, the second goes off. IMO, this is a bug.
