This is what we get for having two hybrid classes that use arcane magic. It's hard for players to tell what they're good at. :)

Rangers are marginally better spellcasters than rogues are, but...

Put another way, tangar, your Diplomacy roll (or I guess in D&D 5e it'd be a Persuasion roll) failed. And this isn't one of those situations where you can just keep trying over and over again.

I think my favorite "recent" addition to the monster list is the bronze golem. Those things are pretty scary-sounding, despite the terse description: "A gigantic four-armed animated bronze statue of...

Reducing the number of books sounds like a good thing to me, from a "too much junk" perspective if nothing else.

I think it's based purely off of native depth. Having uniques be pushed past instead of trampled seems like a reasonable solution to me. Uniques certainly shouldn't be immune to trampling, otherwise...

I suspect that making this work would require making the spell's cost increase as you level. Otherwise you end up with spells that are ridiculously powerful for their cost. Mindcrafting in Zangband...

If I'm reading this correctly, at level 50, this spell will restore 12.5% of the player's max HP? In other words, likely a bit over 100HP for most endgame characters. That still feels like...
