Hmm, so if I understand, the light penalty is applied to a "true" (i.e. not INT-limited) failure rate? So, perhaps I have a true failure rate of -10% (say), which is then corrected to 4%; standing in light applies a penalty that raises it to 2%, which is then also corrected to 4%? Making up the numbers there, but that's the mechanism?

Yes, this is correct.

Previously necromancers had a penalty to CON when in light. There was a discussion here which ended up deciding that failrate was a better penalty. During that discussion someone (I suspect Derakon ) suggested that the penalty should be pre-failrate, because as a necromancer gets more powerful they should be able to overcome light as a penalty, and I agreed. But we can keep thinking about it.

I'd be fine with most of this list other then preferring yellow for priest & white for paladin. I suspect putting priest on the old rogue colour is going to cause a bunch of confusion.

I would simply keep the old colors and add new ones.

Warrior - u
Mage - r
Priest - g
Rogue - b
Ranger - U
Paladin - B

Necromancer - R (that's what I use for PWMAngband)
Druid - G (seem logical)
Blackguard - D (it's a "black" guard)

Current nightly crashes every time I descend stairs, it seems to crash only when I copy the monster.txt to my lore.txt to get full monster memory.

Do you get any message when it crashes? What OS are you using? Has anyone else experienced this?

I made a change recently that I thought would make the process more robust, so I hope I haven't broken it instead.

Windows 10, no message at all: the window just closes. When I restart I start at the level I just entered, but the crash appears next time I find stairs again. Deleting the lore.txt file fixed the problem. Do you want the savefile?

Yes please, and randart file if you're using randarts.

For vampire strike does "the monster is shielded" mean you lack a free square to move to? If so the presence of an object on a square seems to be causing it to fail.

Here's the save and the randarts file. Although I tried a few times with new randarts, so I don't think that's the problem.
