Angband and Nethack used to have a quite active rivalry going on when they were the big two! That's what I was referring to, not anything in the present. I think you're detecting an undercurrent of...

OK, I'll accept the gnome with the wand of disintegration as essentially unavoidable. That is, one who spawns with one (it can happen) rather than one who picks one up. The streaks happen because of...

I know this is from over a month ago, but I'm really not sure you're giving Nethack a fair shake here. Nethack is little different from Angband or Crawl in this regard - if you're knowledgeable,...

Most of your points are entirely valid. I would add that nexus is not usually a serious threat at the point where you're unlikely to have nexus resistance. Some out of depth nexus hounds could pose a...

I thought it was a bit unconventional, but more or less acceptable. Someone might want to tune it to accept both 'mellon' and 'friend' though.

You generally want to switch from light to heavy weapons as your strength and dexterity reach really high levels - they'll start having the blows to outclass whips and daggers.

Angband plays nicely with you until dlvl 40 - that's when it breaks out Kavlax (a truly nasty dragon unique that slows and randomly teleports you while dealing massive damage) and other unpleasant...

If the issue is that ranged combat is too powerful, then I'm not sure that reducing stack size is the correct way to go about nerfing it. After all, ranged combat was always this powerful - it was...

In fullscreen, the inventory only comes to the foreground over the upper-right 1/9th of the playing area. I didn't know that at default size it consumes the entire viewable area - though that makes...

The single biggest interface change that I appreciate between older Angband and modern Angband has to be the way, say, quaffing a potion brings up your inventory in the corner; there are a lot of...

I noticed recently that Ubuntu's software center still downloads Angband 3.1.2 rather than 3.3. Is that something fixable on your end?

You gave up on killing them far too quickly. Lice reach critical mass relatively slowly - unless you were slowed, you could have dealt with the results of a few turns of breeding while you got into...

Delete the fonts-win.prf file under [angband folder]/lib/pref to eliminate the use of "graphical" characters.

Don't go past 40 until you feel super-powerful in the 30s. DL39 isn't much more dangerous than DL30, but as soon as you step into the 40s you need to be quite powerful and ready to run from nasty...

I like the idea of making mature dragons scarier. By the time you get to them, they're more or less loot pinatas - gold and multi-hued are the only mature dragons that are currently even slightly...

I guess I should rephrase. If a new player wants a relatively gentle introduction to the game, they shouldn't play a pure spellcaster. It's not that they shouldn't play pure spellcasters at all; just...

I'm liking the change - as a Paladin it makes some enemies, particularly melee uniques and other things with lots of blows, much more interesting to fight without making them unduly deadly.
