Not having looked extensively at the Z codebase in awhile, I'm still inclined to believe that you'll have better luck "re-implementing" Zangband in Vanilla than the reverse, for the following...

That reminds me of my one reasonably successful NPP character, which was also a paladin. Pretty much every fight against a unique consisted of spamming heals while the unique spammed attack spells,...

It's been a long time since I played SAngband, and I was never very good at it, but my impression was that it strongly encouraged you to focus in a relatively small set of skills. You get to choose...

Sure; extra shots is really just speed bonus to a specific action. Which might actually be a good way to communicate what's going on -- I know people in the past have been confused when they see they...

The smarter you make AI, the harder it gets to support a highly-asymmetrical game design. There's no way the player can be facing down against a Great Wyrm of Balance if that wyrm is intelligently...

Absolutely agreed -- a common complaint about Crawl is that this is what's happened to it. But that doesn't mean you should ignore balance altogether either, and I'd say that extra shots is probably...

Controlled teleport is one of the most powerful abilities in any variant that has it. I've no doubt that would also be the case in Vanilla. Precise positioning is vital to effective combat, and right...

It's fine to disagree with what Nick is doing. This work is being done in a branch, which is effectively a mini-variant -- it won't be incorporated into Vanilla until and unless it can be accepted by...

Sorry, you're right, I didn't get the joke. My bad!
