@Diego--

Depends on the rod. If it was your only rod of detection or something, hunt down the thief and get it back. Otherwise, just keep playing. Depth doesn't matter that much.

Hmm. What is MAX X and MAX Y? You are computing values for something like 40,000 squares, instead of ~500 (the number of floor squares.)

Generally you need to be deeper to find dungeon books. The first is native to dl 30, so you will see it soon enough. The second is native to dl 60.

Do the waves cause pitch, roll, and yaw? I would *love* to play a naval game with reasonable dynamics, not just blasting away point blank, or yardarm to yardarm, as it were.

Perhaps necros need a darkness storm spell/beam spell, but make more monsters resist darkness? Almost none do noe, because there are no spells doing big damage.

Half troll warriors only get five, realistically. You need a preposterous amount of DEX for six with that combo.

You are right. INT used to be more valuable when there was a breakpoint at skill 53 for high level activations (and at 43 for the rod of TO.) The current implementation has no breakpoint.

INT has important secondary effects. Being able to use the rod of TO is a big deal. A low INT HT warrior cannot. 100% save is nice, but less important, I agree.
