In general I agree.

I think this is somewhat true, Angband is a special game, and might well attract strange folk... But I guess it's not quite enough to counter pav's statement...

Angry

While spelunking in the depths of Angband, I noticed the following: In the description of the Staff of the Magi, there is a lack of adequate spacing between the words mana and points. It looks like manapoints. Unless that is the correct spelling. But how is SP=manapoints? Isn't it spell points? Now I am curious if it is called mana points elsewhere.

Anyway, I hope this is the right place to place this piece of peaceful pizza. Did I say peaceful pizza? I meant information.

Manapoints and spellpoints are usual ways to write those things. It is a name of the concept.
Point of mana is one manapoint. How much mana, or how many manapoints.

Spellpoint I think is a bit less clear naming because "point of spell" doesn't really make any sense. Neither does spell point, unless there is some point of space/time to make/cast/use a spell.

It's not points of spell, it's points used to cast spells. But yeah, the naming could be more consistent...

Ok, are we supposed to report bugs here or is this supposed to be informing us where to report bugs? As it is I'm just going to mention it in that long thread I started.

Don't report them in this thread, and deep in the middle of long threads isn't the best idea either. If it's a new bug, best start a new thread.
