I guess this just demonstrates the real limits of anecdotal evidence w.r.t. playtesting and bug reports.
Please can we add dark elf pits? Please? Or if not pits, then little villages of them? (Oooh, sangband has this - maybe we could steal that code ...)

Well Nomad seems to have added them. And you already fixed so we can add them in pit.txt, so I guess it should be pretty easy... Nomad, send it in?

I would rather have Q pits. Would be fun.

Code for pit.txt:

Code:
N:14:Dark elves
R:1
A:1:30
O:0
T:humanoid
F:HURT_LIGHT
Depth and rarity are something of a random guess, so tweak at will.

Other pits I've managed to test so far have tended to have unexpected results, but if I get any others producing a sensible selection of monsters I'll post those too.

To break the monotony of jelly/orc pits, I added to my variant the following pits/nests:
- mimic nest (15+): "Hey, who left all this stuff on the floor?"
- people pit (20+): "Hi guys! When does the concert start?"
- angel pit (40+): "Repent your sins NOW!"
- unlife (NONLIVING flag) nest (70+): "An empty nest? I should talk to the dungeon architect..."

Always fun to get one when unprepared...

I suspect this may be a bug with the pit/nest refactors from awhile ago. If so, it definitely needs to be fixed for 3.3.
Check pit.txt:

Code:
# 'A' is for rarity and average level. A rarity of N means that the pit is N times
# more rare than a pit with a rarity of 1. The average level is the dungeon level
# at which this pit is most common.
And:

Code:
N:4:Acid dragons
R:1
A:6:85
O:0
T:dragon
T:ancient dragon
S:BR_ACID
s:BR_ELEC
All dragon pits have a rarity of 6 (probably because there are 6 sorts of dragon pits). Maybe tone down the rarity to get more D pits?

Precisely. The game used to sometimes generate a dragon pit, and then pick the flavor. Now it just picks a flavor. The end result should be the same in terms of how often they come up.
