Absolutely agree with you. A more indepth player guide would really help make Angband more popular.

things, for example, which are invaluable now but i didn't understand back when i started:

1) mobs, OOD mobs, and uniques, which you are *NOT* meant to fight, and escaping in general as a major game tactic.

2) why resistances make such a difference and why instead AC, acid damage, etc are less important. (i.e. how to chose your equipment)

3) ALL the hidden game options, and how to find them, and WHY you should find them.

4) LOS tricks, turn count, resting, and in general explaining that this is a tactical game, not a RPG; one turn counts for a lot.

5) keymaps. and maybe inscriptions, but indepth.
