question about armor imposed mana points penalty

hello,

I'm new to Angband, and have been unable to find any information regarding a certain question. Can somebody tell me how the armor penalty that reduces your mana points works? Are there any factors that affect it? Does the amount of armor you can wear without having a MP penalty increase with your character level? I'd appreciate the help, I looked in the help files and searched the forum but haven't found anything yet.

"All spellcasters may suffer a penalty to their maximum number of spell
points from heavy armor. The maximal combined weight of all armor
(equipment slots "g" through "l") for each class is given in table 2.
Exceeding the limit results in a penalty of 1 spell point per pound of
extra weight."


Table 2: Effect of class on spells and prayers

Class Min. level Max. armor weight Minimum fail% Primary stat
------- ---------- ----------------- ------------- ------------
Mage 1 300 pounds 0% Intelligence
Paladin 1 400 pounds 5% Wisdom
Priest 1 350 pounds 0% Wisdom
Ranger 3 400 pounds 5% Intelligence
Rogue 5 350 pounds 5% Intelligence

Unfortunately, the spoiler-composer did not compose his table carefully enough. V's smallest unit of weight is the decipound, not the pound. So the table should read:

Table 2: Effect of class on spells and prayers

Class Min. level Max. armor weight Minimum fail% Primary stat
------- ---------- ----------------- ------------- ------------
Mage 1 30.0 pounds 0% Intelligence
Paladin 1 40.0 pounds 5% Wisdom
Priest 1 35.0 pounds 0% Wisdom
Ranger 3 40.0 pounds 5% Intelligence
Rogue 5 35.0 pounds 5% Intelligence

Hi Zaimoni,

Thanks for pointing this out. I have just corrected this table in my draft version for V 3.0.9. I'm not sure when the correction will go online because I still have lots to do before I can publish the bundle as "correct for 3.0.9", and I currently have little time to spare...

The correction is valid as far back as the current weight settings are valid for V. It could go up immediately as a spot-fix for Vx.x.x .
