I am kinda surprised the game doesn't use ounces. At every other opportunity, the original coding used shift operators as much as possible.

I do notice that perfect stealth is not actually possible, as there is a 1/1024 chance of disturbance even when stealth is 30.

Negative values in programming and math are often treated differently. It isn't an issue I would worry about.

I never understood the root of this argument. If the argument is along the lines of "plants and stone are immune to arrows", and "stones are immune to swords", I would agree. But I believe sil...

David--look at the code above. the amount of wakeup is also scaled, by 100/distance. This means that you have to be nearby to wake it up fast, and adjacent you will wake him up in 1/10 nominal time.

It's amazing how much difference a find like this makes in the early game, or even midgame, unless you are playing full-caster. ESP or big damage or both makes a huge difference in survival. In the...

it's very difficult to enchant above 11. He is almost certain to find a better bow before that happens. Much better to spend the scrolls on arrows, and improve damage that way.

might is better when they are that close. You won't be using ordinary +0 arrows against tough opponents. Once you start using enchanted (or big dice) ammo, the bow of might will come into it's own

Sure, but as written, the object can get destroyed by an element if it has a random resist, but not if it has a default resist. Or that is what it looks like.

I have congratulated tangar on his font development for ToME. But not for this one. I love the < > replacements that look more explicitly like stairs. Replacing @ with a human figure is clever too.

It'd cost you a huge fortune--1.5M might not do it. (You can find out the cost by generating artifact spoilers (on a copy of the save file, so you don't get marked **WIZARD**.) Just wear the thing.

It certainly is way more powerful than the spell it replaced (haste self.) Haste self doubles speed if you start from 1x normal. Fast cast doubles speed no matter what.
