Every enemy is a monster; that's just the blanket term for something you can kill. Animals are listed as "natural" in the monster memory; likewise, evil/giant/orc/undead/dragon/demon are also listed...

Maybe let them boost all of STR/DEX/CON? Or alternatively, make them show up earlier before you're likely to have found a competitor; it could possibly be interesting having an incentive to wear...

I suspect this is one of those things that was never really given serious thought. Rods of Probing have had pretty similar depth/rarity for as long as I can remember, and they used to be pretty...

Have you enabled the Low Hitpoint Warning? IIRC it can't be cleared by stuff like movement keys, only by e.g. spacebar or Enter, precisely for this kind of situation.

That's no excuse for being rude. You can absolutely provide criticism, so long as it's constructive. Players and devs both want the game to improve; it's not like we're on different sides here. The...

Being surprised by an enemy you didn't know is there. Even if you do have FA, that can be quite the shock and can throw your carefully-laid plans awry. Which is (usually) fun.

They're basically...

This is tricky advice to follow when you don't know which wands/staves/equipment are worthless and which are useful. :)

Hm, I don't know that I'd call Paladin boring, but it is a class that doesn't have any glaring weaknesses, which means that there's nothing substantial that you have to overcome aside from the...

I generally play priests as Orb/device monkeys for the early and mid-game. Their DEX is so bad even with a decent race that you're not going to have worthwhile melee until post-stat gain anyway....

High-Elves are above-average everywhere, but for any given class there's usually a race that complements it better. Probably the most notable exception is Mage, since the other high-INT race, Gnome,...

It cannot be overstated just how garbage rangers are in the early game. They can do anything, but they can't do anything well. Even archery isn't exactly amazing before you get access to enchanted...

rNexus and pStun are not big deals. I'd be happy to do without either of them. If asked to choose between them, I'd prefer keeping pStun.

But you're gonna have to learn all the runes eventually, right? What's so bad about learning a curse?

Would it make sense to have the quality of items you can forge depend in part on the depth at which the forge is found? I don't know how you would explain this in-universe, but it might let you...

For me, the point of randarts is exactly that I don't know what I might find next. Pre-emptive spoilers are antithetical to that approach. But if you enjoy it, then knock yourself out.
