It occurs to me that there was one other change that made infinite phase and CLW possible in the early game: the elimination of Charisma and vast reduction in store prices early. I have advocated in...

OK, i will buy that. Yes, i agree that the base mechanic needs to be harder in V, especially esrly V. I just think the way to fix the early game is with the occasional genuinely dangerous monster....

@Sky--
I think you misread my post. I asked for OOD monsters, not OOD loot--and less loot than is currently common in the early game. It used to be common that you would be headinv towards DL 30...

Yes, TO and detection are why I say it is a game of economics, more than one of tactical play. As it happens, I kind of like having a game of economics available as an alternative.

Percentage healing refers to current wounds, not MaxHP. So if you are at (say) 735 HP, curing will give you 133 HP back. The original Heal300 spell is almost always better.

Warrior and Paladin have two differences, but they don't add up to much separation. The first kicks in early: res fire and cold. This makes killing Smaug and friends easy for one class but hard for...

How about an "immensely improved coder?" You took the early engineering improvements to Angband and ran with them. The game is much more solid as a piece of software than it was in 3.0

Got it. I guess the difference is that the DEX table topped out at 18/150, so getting max blows was so much easier.
