Which variant is this?

Hey fellas, I've been keen to have another season on angband and am trying to find the variant I used to play. Bear in mind it's been a while, and it's possible I'm actually getting confused and referring to two variants.

1) the first thing about it was that I would get percentage increases in things like spell schools, etc, and I seem to recall when I would 'level' (or the equivalent) I would cast a few spells in the school (or perhaps several schools) and watch my percentages lift a little? I think it might have been the same mechanic for hit points and getting hit, when I would reach a milestone (level-up?) I would get more hp every time I got hit for a while?

2) There was a mindcrafter class that used something other than mana I think, but I thought a hybrid class of the mindcrafter also that was able to use mindcrafting as well as maybe spell schools as well? Again, when you would level-up (or whatever with xp) you would be able to cast some powers that would lift your percentage and open up new powers?

I'm hoping that this is all in the one variant and that it's available. I really did enjoy it. Anyone got any ideas which one it is, or am I just really confused?

Okay, so I hav been doing a heap more searching and it appears that the variant I am after is scthangband.

According to everywhere I have searched, and downloads I have tried to download, scthangband no longer exists, like anywhere on the planet. Can anyone please confirm this is or isn't the case, so I can stop looking or continue my search?

Thanks in advance

Wow thanks Nick, that's the one! Lots of versions by the looks and the one I downloaded is slightly tweaked from when I used to play, but yeah that's the one.

Started playing Moria in '88 and have to go back to scratch this angband itch every year or two.

Thanks again
