Morgie goes down in the lastest Nightly

http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=22357

There's things I like and things I don't like about the new version, but all-in-all the changes seem good. Definitely a harder game now. Even the end-game was challenging, with Balrog wall eaters and Morgoth clearing a wide path. Morgie also seemed to hit a lot harder and a lot more often than before, making a win challenging even though @ had The One Ring. Used all CCW, Healing and *Healing* and had only a potion of Life when Morgoth finally went down. About The One Ring, it came from reading a scroll of Acquirement in a small vault on the exact spot where @ found Nenya. And they keep telling me that reading on the "8"s doesn't matter.

OK, that's encouraging. How was the Sauron fight?

Good to see you haven't swallowed the official line about the 8s

Sauron was a bit of a pain, until I could maneuver him into more favorable terrain that @ was able to prepare, then, he was a pushover. Morgie, on the other hand, that was scary!

Another run on the latest nightly (12 Apr 2019 at 23:37 UTC, revision 4dab01316). Made it all the way to the win. Probably needs some balance tweaks, many of which have been mentioned, e.g., huorns. Definitely a harder game, but still doable. http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=22483
