Game turns are ticks on the clock; they correspond directly to how much in-game time passes. Standard turns are actions taken. I'm not 100% sure on how the game measures resting turns, but I suspect...

Game turns are the fundamental unit of time in the game; everything that happens must happen on a game turn. Think of game turns like seconds on a clock. Every game turn, every creature (player +...

Action point based games usually let you take multiple actions per turn, e.g. movement is 1 point, attacking is 4, casting a spell is 5, you get 7 points. Are you proposing doing that in Angband? It...

Gothmog is a creature of fire and shadow; what does that look like? I can definitely see an argument for his whip making things darker.

I would in fact argue that Sting, Orcrist, and Glamdring should glow because having them never give off light is far worse than having them always give off light. Especially when you're basically...

Good news! We're in the 4.2.0 bugs thread, so hopefully Nick will see this. :)

Adamantite, and mithril, are both corrosion-proof. That holds for armor made of the metal just as much as it does for monsters made of it.
