Oh, I forgot, I would like an ignore option that would allow me to ignore dragon scale mails by type. After a certain point in the game, I will have no use for red dragon, blue dragon, etc. scale mails, even with an ego, but might still have an interest in the more exotic dragon scale mails even without an ego. As it is, there is no flexibility in terms of ignoring dragon scale mails.

If you could provide a save file (and randart file if you're playing with randarts) that would be really helpful.

Thanks for all the other comments, they will be considered. One small other note - Satisfy Hunger setting food level to 50% was intended, to make actual food more valuable. Maybe it should be called Alleviate Hunger.

If you're going to do stuff like this, please make HUNGER OFF a pre-game option, because unless you want to challenge yourself with ironman, the whole hunger thing is nothing but a pain in the ass. Why anybody would want to make people have to deal with it even more than they already do is beyond me.

I have to agree with the push for the spell/scroll to take @ to 66%. It makes sense to me that Elven waybread is the best, but I also think the other magical hunger mechanic should be a better option than rations (which I think of as MREs, they get you by, but not the tastiest things) and certainly should be better than slime molds. Slime molds having a better benefit/weight ratio than the magical scroll just doesn't seem right.

I still think the race xp modifiers have value, or else there's just not much reason to play less powerful races.

That would be convenient. Except for comps (where the rule is you must start with the original savefile, not rebirth, so everyone is on a level playing field), I find myself quit/rebirthing until I get a favorable town layout.

Exactly. If the Race XP modifications are removed, then the humans need to be given some bonuses/advantages or it won't make much sense. There needs to be a penalty somewhere for playing a high elf, etc.

Yeah, you know something's wrong when someone is motivated to do multiple restarts just in order to play the game.

Attached. Hope that is what you need.
I'm playing a separate one without persistent levels, seems to run smoothly.

I disagree, "is weaker" is as much a reason as "is stronger". Though for the most part I'm fine with it either way (xp penalties or no xp penalties).
