Sorry to cause trouble, but I'm very anti-Tolkienization of spellbooks. Those guys didn't teleport around throwing fireballs. To light a fire, they had to either use flint and tinder or a Gandalf.

I'm fairly certain I've already voiced my opinion on food in an earlier thread. But as these things go stale:

Cheap and plentiful Phase Door is probably hardwired into many @s strategies. That is not to say that it shouldn't be changed. Same applies to abundance of Teleport Other, food, healing etc. If...

Is poison in the form of damage over time actually interesting?

When I was a wee lad, running around the Dungeons of Doom (=Rogue), poison would reduce Str by 1 - that was serious business. Moria...

I'm with wobbly on this one.

If you must have hunger and gorged status, maybe make Slow Digestion stop your food level ever changing, up or down. Call it Indigestion... :rolleyes:

I'm skeptical:
(a) Getting stuck with a sticky curse is very dangerous mid-game onwards, so players would be encouraged to stick around small depths until they've identified this curse.

How about vanilla, with a character who starts off wearing a permanently cursed item (and unbreakable with remove curse) that has "no teleport" on it? :eek:

In other words, no instant escapes....

I've played a few melee-oriented druids. I don't think the Fox is OP (v4.1.3). It does outdo the other druid shapes, but I'd argue that's because the others are too weak or too niche.

"Your hands begin to glow" was passed down to Angband from it's father, Moria, and to Moria from it's father, Rogue. It was possibly the last scroll message to do so. It is very sad to see the line...

In principle, I agree with the model where wands/staves are only used when you need them. I wouldn't mind scrolls of recharging being either weak, rare or going altogether. However, spell-based...
