I think a lot of new players come to POS with a fundamental misconception about what playing the game is. It's not you dictating to the game how it should be played, according to an arbitrary concept...

Suiciding (or, worse, losing interest in characters, and thus implicitly suiciding them) is the only "lose" condition in Frog.

So I'm running a level 22 android politician in chocolate. I can use Grit, Grease and Glory, but instead of the usual political skills, I have Trump magic.

Agreed.

Basically: Three *grand* artifacts dropped by late endgame monsters that (since nerfs) don't make up for the fact that it's the late endgame, and you already did the work.

Hey, Sideways. The new version is great. I don't have much to add.

Here's what I like especially:

Reforging feedback, and the ubiquity of randart jewelry (as feedstock).

I don't think you can play Poscheng or its ilk on Android (answering this question is not helped by "android" being a playable race). Since I only play roguelikes and since I haven't had my PC for...

You're close. AFAIK, what makes this a perk is that Subtle/Peerless give you a 50%/20% chance of triggering it. Not having them means it will trigger every time.

Yo Sideways. First a personal "thank you" from me for taking a look at stunning, which, if still broken in the next release, will be less hilariously so.

By design, I think—carried over from Zang'. Just watch the weight % in your inventory screen. You don't go to -1 speed until 120%, but you start drowning at 100%.

You don't get that ability until level 10. Buy a sword or something. Shield bashing is (IMO) not a viable melee attack—you won't benefit from the two-handed-with-a-shield bonus, you won't get slays,...

My weaponmaster (shields) is getting "icky wield" with an artifact mithril shield.

Specifically, not getting the AC bonus, unable to use class powers.

Which is too bad. It's a nice shield.
