Why is Draught of the Ents classified as food rather than drink? (Uses the Eat command instead of Quaff.)

Loot drop was very buggy in those days. Smaug was killed in Esgaroth, but all the stuff dropped miles away in Erebor. So not sure we should infer much from the quality of the loot anyway.

Thanks, Nick. I had no idea the drain was temporary these days, as I have been avoiding all such gear for ages. Just to check, by "temporary" do you mean that it goes away with time/resting, or that...

The "Drains Experience" looks like a randomly generated morgul weapon effect. I thought one couldn't uncurse those and that hold life didn't help, but I may well be wrong. Could someone confirm?

It sounds like, along with the Competition, we need a regular Angband Puzzle. A few lines of text from the game, and the community has to figure out what was going on.

Late-game

I'd like to open a can of disenchanter worms. Specifically what, to my taste, is a serious problem with late game Angband, viz it's tedious and loses the atmosphere present in the early game. Yes,...

Nick, I don't think the problem is with the mage but with late-game Angband. (I'll try to write something precise about this in the next few days.) As things stand, Banishment/Mass Banishment are...

Just played through with a Hobbit Ranger to test the new rules. They seem to me to be a significant improvement.

This is obviously a little late, but I'd recommend aggravation just for the experience of playing with it. (I once had a rogue who was aggravating everything from dlv 5 all the way to Morgoth.)

In principle, "no teleport other + no teleport self + no phase door" is interesting. However, I found that there are enough annoying encounters to stop this being fun later in the game.
