@Grotug
Believe me, reading lotr for the first time, I had no idea wtf Tom Bombadil was. Until the very end I was certain he'd reappear in one way or another. :D

Edit: Tom really does not need to...

I knew there was a book called Silmarillion by the time I first beat Angband. Hadn't read Tolkien at all. All my knowledge was based on Ralph Bakshi's LoTR movie (which fell incomplete).

you don't have to go very deep in the game to get majority of these escape items. On DL4 however, the only ways are usually ?PD and ?WoR. Even my proposal of making wall material softer...

It would be an extremely rare event to die this way, to starve there caved-in. Yet, I'm not a fan of the possibility of this happening.

One way to at least somewhat reduce the chance to die...

Looks good imo, except I would switch a weapon. Careth is good but you have better ones sitting at home.

Gurthang is a way better all-around weapon at this point. With it, you can also wield...

You have a good char going. Don't compromise on stealth. It makes things so much easier when your MAXHP is low. If you can find <+3> or <+4> stealth Ring of Mouse, use it. Your stealth is at Superb...

There are Rings of Lightning but I'd rather ignore powerful elec-breathers, than carry one those to the deep end of the game.

Nah, it's fine. Clouded deserves to be in the last place for having the nerve to collect 15x EXP than rest of the players put together :D

Good chunk of community opinions already. That's what I was looking for.

I don't think a stationary monster that you are supposed to always ignore, serves as a good introductory for huorns and hasty ent. For Old Man Willow, it does.

I'd be mollified with this change :D
If I dared to ask for more, I'd lower the dice of escort wargs too, and replace them with more orcs. Well, not orcs for the late game breathing wolves ofc.
