I found an Amulet of Devotion a few games back in the DLevel 20s--and this was either in 3.2 or in a nightly after 3.2 but before 3.3. But that was the only time. Usually before stat gain I am using...

In general I don't really like unresistable damage forms--they make the game less fun. I do like the idea of having many of the list be resistable, but jigger it so you can't resist EVERYTHING at the...

Hellfire/plasma issues

So admittedly I am sour because I just lost what I thought would be BY FAR my most rapid victory yet: Paladin about 510K turns at Dlevel 63, but much of the way to beating Morgy with a good weapon,...

I like it. Doesn't require some major overhaul, increases penalty for those using it wantonly and I agree after some thought of my recent games that I don't find that much desire to use it anyway.
