Preserve mode

It would be interesting to have a comp with preserve mode off. I think many players, including me, are quite addicted to preserve mode and would find it quite a challenge to play without it.

Sure, I'd be happy to try that. Although the next comp is likely to be sangband, and I'm not sure how much harder you want to make that variant

You could always make it a SAngband competition from the 0.9.4 days (I think that was the version number) before maintainer #2 took over and hit everything on the player's side with a nerf mallet. I remember crafting copper Heavy Crossbows that gave +6 to stats and similar levels of madness.

Fennelling, I have heard it described, and I think it was only jewelry.

I'd prefer a modern Sang comp, it is such a fabulous variant (and in fact not nearly as hard as O).

How would you feel about making a savefile for a modern sangband comp?

Fennelling, as I recall, had greater potential to make ridiculous things over the long term as you basically fed all of your items into each other, but straight-up crafting still made powerful items early on. Copper crossbows that were not very useful launchers but gave huge stat bonuses are definitely something I remember doing.
