There's an error bell that's off by default, and a number of other sounds that are technically supported but not there in practice; they would require the player to define USE_SOUND in z-config.h...

1) If you rest at the inn, you always wake up at the next 6 o'clock (whether AM or PM). So if you go there at 5:59 or 17:59 you only rest for 1 minute, but if you go there at 6:01 you rest for almost...

Using Normal level size in instant-coffee isn't possible, since it automatically sets it to "instant coffee (allow big)" unless "instant coffee (never big)" is specifically selected.

And yes,...

Anti-magic is nice; but the disenchantment saves are elemental saves based on your rDisenchantment, saving throw doesn't help there. If you don't have rDisen, most likely you got lucky with it...

Yes and yes.

It gives the Chaotic stats but has no effect on what the patrons do or when.

Nothing unintuitive, except I think no regeneration? And if there's no winner after a while, it's called a draw and you get your money back.

Ladder positions are just by who uploaded their character first; but actual comp ranking is winner with least XP, or most XP if no winners (turncount not used since it's not included in the dump).
