My first win in the new FAAngband

Just finished knocking off Morgoth for the first time in this new version of FAAngband. What a great job Nick has done. Loads of fun to play!

Indeed, an amazing job has been done. I'm still excited since the release of 2.0

Since when were there "Rings of Power" in the First Age?

Similar time-frame to scrolls of Word of Recall

OK, that is fair, though I vaguely recall you being strict about artifacts. Also, is FA using deadliness or damage? From the dump I cannot tell.

No, it was a pretty cheap shot really

My policy is basically that things that are clearly out of theme (angels) or chronology (Ar-Pharazon) are out. But for FA I'm not going to completely gut all the game mechanics. Rings are an interesting case, because the idea of forging them imbued with powers is clearly a Second Age thing, but the general idea of gems with powers is not as precise - notably Tolkien went back and forth on whether the Elessar was First or Second Age. I've taken the easy route of allowing jewellery items with powers, and given that, I've allowed them to fill basically the same niche as they do in Vanilla. So Rings of Power are more just the most powerful rings you can find than the 9, 7, 3 and 1 from the verse.

Deadliness. The +n% in Melee is a clue, but then there is Shoot to-dam which I should change.
