Are you aware that shifting back to humanoid form doesnt take a turn? So your options aren't really limited.

I found it somewhat interesting. The lower my satiation when I went down to the dungeon, the likelier it was that I'd have to abandon a level prematurely because I got hungry (or take up a precious...

Depends on the class. I relied on them pretty heavily for quite a while for my recent Blackguard to cut down on how much time I spent resting (both because of her poor stealth, and because she loses...

I don't really view gorging as a means of *removing* potion spamming. More to give potion spamming a trade-off. So you have to give some thought to it. Maybe not a lot of thought, but some.

It seems to me that the primary purpose is to nerf the "Phase Door and slam back CLW potions by the dozen" strategy for healing. At least, there have been a few times where I've nearly gotten killed...

I always TO'd or otherwise avoided those two,even with Taunting. Not worth the risk, in my opinion.

Actually, Relentless Taunting will *increase* the chances, since the touch attack is part of their melee attack. I didn't fight liches until I could put them down in a turn or two.

Now, if you put...

I don't disagree. I just avoid those situations, or use a scroll/staff of *Destruct* if I end up in them, hence why I didn't get much use out of it. It would I think be much more useful if it came...

For this reason I set my low hitpoint warning at 50% rather than the default 30%. Usually gives me an extra turn or two to escape. Also, I tend to TO (or avoid, if TO is still limited and precious)...

Any reason you couldn't just manually assign default starting stats for humans in the data file, and then programmatically apply the modifiers that the other races provide?
