Angband vs Moria

In a fairly recent post Nick said the magic words "NPPMoria". Classical Moria is almost unplayable after Angband, thanks to the vast UI improvements. NPPMoria is. I dug it out and played through with...

I agree with DM.

Thematically, calling for "daddy" makes sense, but it messes with the gameplay.

At least don't let summoners summon other summoners. Exception - Bishibosh. :rolleyes:

Mayhap the problem lies in insufficient monster exp, rather than an overflow of potion exp.

Sorry to cause trouble, but I'm very anti-Tolkienization of spellbooks. Those guys didn't teleport around throwing fireballs. To light a fire, they had to either use flint and tinder or a Gandalf.

If you must have hunger and gorged status, maybe make Slow Digestion stop your food level ever changing, up or down. Call it Indigestion... :rolleyes:

(a) Getting stuck with a sticky curse is very dangerous mid-game onwards, so players would be encouraged to stick around small depths until they've identified this curse.

I've played a few melee-oriented druids. I don't think the Fox is OP (v4.1.3). It does outdo the other druid shapes, but I'd argue that's because the others are too weak or too niche.
