Who was this in response to? Was there a spammer whose post got deleted?



Half-Troll mages are surprisingly viable. Yes, their SP total is poor and their failure rates are a bit high compared...

Recall and finding stairs, yeah. If the level goes sour on you then you need to find a new level. As a young mage you are not going to be able to defeat anywhere near 100% of the threats you...

Hello! Welcome to the forums. :) I have responses to some of your suggestions below.

We had some discussion awhile back about, more or less, not tying the spellcasting UI to the spellbooks. But...

You're probably playing pretty leisurely then; "early" is relative. Angband doesn't tell you how fast to dive, so theoretically you could max your stats out without ever going deeper than level 1...

I'm inclined to agree with this. "Monsters drop better items when you encounter them deeper in the dungeon" works OK when "better" mostly just means "you have a slightly higher chance to get a useful...

This is why people say things like "don't really worry about speed once you can get to +30 from temporary haste." :)

It's been a thing since the beginning. The game assumes that vaults are walkable. I suspect that breaking that assumption would make it significantly harder to place vaults in levels, and thereby de...

It's not that speed over +20 isn't worthwhile, it just becomes harder to balance against other bonuses. The reason why +20 is so significant is that with temporary haste up that gets you to +30,...

This is a good summation. As for ideas for 3, how about if more powerful races had a lower level cap? Like, you topped out at level 40 for a high-elf and level 50 for a human, and everyone else was...

It's not a fundamentally different game. You're basically just locking yourself out of stores and the home. The practical upshot of this is that you have fewer consumables, especially Phase Door and...

"min(15, 20)" means take the lower of whichever the two values is (it is choosing the minimum value from the provided options). So the item's minimum level would be 15.

There's a lot of reasons why on-the-fly declarations is the standard these days. The biggest one IMO is that it allows you to scope a variable to just the block of code it is used in. For example, in...

Speed and CON, in my opinion. The extra HP does more to protect you from elements than the resists on the randart do. That said, I'd carry the randart as a swap for dealing with big fire-element...

Chance to successfully enchant depends on how enchanted the item is already. It's flat-out impossible to enchant anything above +15, and it's pretty hard to get above +10. Most artifact armors have...

It's not bad, but your current weapon is better. Realistically you're not going to get more than 20-30 more damage per round out of it.

What do you feel the Gorged status adds to the game? Or perhaps a better question is, what potential do you see in the concept?
