Re: tables and other furniture.

The scale of Angband is huge, assuming that each grid is 10 ft * 10 ft. (Is it? Or is it left purposely vague?) Most furniture I can think of would only take one grid. That makes adding tactically interesting furniture a bit challenging.

I decided to make the scale of Fay smaller, 5 ft * 5 ft per square.

I also made tables much smaller. IMO the smallest practical size for a table is 2*2, because then you can easily see when the player, monster or an object is on a table:

#@
##

I decided to make either the width or length of a table almost always exactly 2. (The only exception is 3*3 tables that are sometimes generated.)
