@spara
Depends on the variant. In old variants, SHRIEK just added 10 to speed, so yes. In newer variants, it adds to a haste counter, just like the one for the player.

What Derakon said. Out of curiousity, what weapon did you end up using against Morgoth? I don't see it in your inventory, and it surely wasn't Grond.

@Derakon--
Also +INT or weight zero (gloves of alchemy) incur no INT penalty. Ego alchemy gloves can be very nice. Note that the weight penalty is applied after the glove penalty, so the combined...

@Borg--
Yeah, the tick rate leads to weird play. What you want is single-player mode when there is one player in LOS, and at least one player getting a turn (with a timeout for the others) whent...

Without fire and cold immunities, it just wrecks your gear, so it isn't worth killing. But a high level Paladin with double fire/cold resist should be able to kill pretty much any monster in the...

There are some things that made it into very late versions of 3.0 that really belong in other variants, notably the knowledge menus from unangband. It is easily portable code, and unangband doesn't...

Custom loop iterator functions don't make a lot of sense in C. They are great in C# and other languages with anonymous and/or lambda functions.
