I also played Hack, Nethack, Moria, Larn, and Linley's dungeon crawl. So I bring an exceedingly great experience at playing games to my attempts to win Angband. I say with great authority that this game needs a well written MANUAL!
I think James Doyle, who has spent a long time writing this, would hope that it satisfied your needs. If it doesn't, start a thread about the improvements you'd like to see ...

Have you really managed 60 hours a week average? I've played quite a lot of games over the past 30 years, but I suspect that my average is only a handful of hours per week. I can remember a few periods where I probably averaged 60 hours a week for half a dozen weeks (MoO1 springs to mind), but I don't think I could keep it up. What do you do for a living that allows you 60 hours a week of gaming time??
