Also, how strange it is to read an Angband vanilla noob asking for a return of the charisma stat. I mean it was an interesting dynamic in 1996 with my half orc warrior not getting a good price for his spellbook, but I can honestly say the game is so much better without pointless charisma... I make my own
I will have to explore that debate more. Perhaps, my desire for the stat block to look more like dnd is evidence of my mind being bent by pure marketing.
