Weak against cold + resist cold has no net effect. You need immunity to override the cold curse. Permanent resist + temporary resist + cold curse has the effect of single resistance (independent of...

Ooh, diagonal vault. There will be great loot. Stand at the entrance, and let the monsters come to you. Fight them or TO them depending on strength. You will get plenty of free tries to TO dangerous...

I like that. But for debuff, I would say it should knock two or three points off the three primary melee stats. (Ouch!)

Yeah. But destruct is harmless *if* you stack up everything you need unxer your feet, and that is possible with squelch. But yes: you do need to delay reading scrolls (and activating staffs) til...

Losing the scrolls was your worst decision. At the very least, try to read-ID them before you leave. You can force them to stack on top of each other using squelch, then unsquelch them once they are...

Stopping one square away is better, since you can see what it is before reaching it. Unless you do auto-pickup, you won't know necessarily know why you stopped. My one complaint: If you keep running...

Ooh. Hurin is a fantastic, near-endgame weapon. I am about to use it to kill Sauron. (It is not good vs. Morgoth.) Aglarang may be better for now, as you have few sources of speed. But not for long....

This is not to say you should ignore sustains: S_STR is probably worth having as a swap at least. The others, not so much. DEX drain is rare (Liches and not much else.) CON drain is more common, bit...

Yes, throwing bolts does the same average damage of 3 as a sling with pebbles. But flasks of oil do 7 average damage, and iron shot 5, so the point is somewhat moot. And yeah, that is a ridiculous...

What an original idea! And maybe make a hard-to-use-ID item curse that does the same thing! :)

On the vault generation code, it looks like the amulet code is already there and is identical to the ring code, so I don't see why they won't get generated. BTW: here is another ugly if else stack,...

When you are at low speed, a +speed weapon has a huge payoff. At higher speed, the incremental damage boost is much less per game turn (which is the metric of use here.) Avavir is not a bad...

@Derakon--
Indeed.

Once you hit DL 35, drolems and AMHDs will be able to spawn in special rooms, and ordinary ancient dragons will be fairly frequent there. Drolems and AMHDs won't be a whole...

Extreme diving with very low HP as a mage is a bit tedious if you don't have ESP. You need to illuminate every long hallway in case some PASS_WALL monster gets the jump on you. And you need to detect...

You are keeping way too many weapons at home. You will never use a *Thanc, or Aiglos, or Sting. Mage always uses a stat stick until very late in the game*, and +1 CON just isn't enough. (I don't...

Probably you were chased by Adunaphel. She is impossible to avoid because of PASS_WALL and long detection range. And she is native to near DL 50.

Yikes. That will be very hard to debug. Good luck! Simply deleting the .ini file should be enough, and in any case the Shockbolt tiles are known to work for other users.
