Ah, great, thanks for the info. 540 (!) is out of range, but I should have no problem keeping things over 240 without going into contortions.

Armor/Armour class question

I'm playing a game with randarts and some items have come up with high AC bonuses. For example, I've got a +43 cloak, a +37 sling, and the arkenstone has a +20 bonus. My current AC before blessing is...

I don't see it in 3.3.2. The description ends after the part about how many turns it will take to cut through rubble, magma, etc.

It's similar, but Thunderfist doesn't have all those *slays*, does it? I know there was a version of vanilla at some point that listed the basis for each randart -- don't know what happened to it,...

Here's an idea: Has there ever been a comp using Vanilla where the goal was to kill not only Morgoth but also every other unique? Might be an interesting wrinkle.

Funny messages in *band

So, this just happened:

You smite the Olog. Your hands stop glowing. You have slain the Olog. The Olog looks confused.

In that vein…

"Cubragol! Woot!

"Oh, right -- I'm a ranger."
