Interface option easy_open.
You can override this with the "jump" command, to set off a trap intentionally (usually trap door or teleport trap--both are cheap escapes.)

I would agree with the OP under the original spell list, when almost everyone has double cold resist. Now that potions are the only option for most chars, cold is a bigger risk. (And yes, do carry...

*Slay Evil* at one point had a random ability guaranteed. When it was ESP, it made for a really excellent weapon. I don't understand why that was removed.

Losing 20k to a vampire bat is karma. They are easy to detect and have almost no HP. Just a single shot from a half-decent bow, or a wand of fire bolts will destroy it. No need to let it get close.

1/8 of the poison counter and 1/4 of the cut counter, maybe? That means poison tops out at 100 per normal turn for a single attack.

Gg
Shovel of quakes can't actually cause earthquakes. It takes at least a pick, and it generally requires a *GREAT* hit in melee.

Random char generation will be brutal in Sil. Yeah, you will lose a lot of chars until you get one that is roughly optimal. Might as well play with a char of your choice
