archolewa is on a distinguished road
Personally, I think Ironman should not be the default because making it the default goes against the spirit of Angband. Fundamentally, Angband assumes each player understands what they do and do not find fun and will adjust their playstyle accordingly. Making ironman the default effectively tells people who like to grind that they arent playing the game as intended. Meanwhile, the cureent default says nothing one way or the other about how much grinding is necessary. Want limited resources? Just dont take the upstairs! Nothing except the player is keeping them from playing ironman even with the current default.

However, making ironman default does restrict players who like grinding or at least having it as an option.
