Amber skill levels used to be called legendary, I don't understand the reason for the change

There is a problem with the character sheet in http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=21617
For scrolls of acquirement it says: found 23, bought 0, used 24

I wonder if it is because a scroll obtained from the Thalos arena, the bounty hunter or a quest wasn't counted

You do realize that the "Amber" name dates back to at least PCB6 (but quite possibly back to Hengband), and that the game is, moreover, set in Roger Zelazny's Amber universe, right?

I have smart cheat and smart learn on and my character is in the Haunted House quest and is wearing an anti-teleport amulet
A hand druj tried multiple times to teleport my character away, I think that is a bug

The code has a note that says "Legendary is too long for tables". The "Legendary" terminology predates both the current format of said tables (in the help files) and the use of additional numbers to give further detail (e.g. "Amber[27]"). I believe the switch to "Amber[X]" was made all the way back in ZAngband (which, of course, is short for Zelazny Angband).

Although looking at the power level of characters in Composband, there are times when I wonder if "Gwarl[X]" wouldn't be more appropriate...

I am absolutely certain that older versions of Poschengband or Chengband had Legendary[32] instead of Amber[32], easy to check by looking at character dumps

Chris probably adopted the old ZAngband terminology when he changed the format of the help file tables.

If Legendary[32] is too long, then could instead give just a numerical value for each skill proficiency
So instead of Superb could display 40, and instead of Legendary[32] could display 75

A quick and dirty survey, it looks like "Amber" came in with PCB 6.0.0, Prior to that dumps have Legendary.
