This has happened *a lot* with many of my own characters with Bad Stealth

And clouded's new monsters should be incorporated into future official releases of chris's PosChengband!!!!!

Michael, Tik, Star Blades... Great Luckily, we don't have sanity in here and turn based action. Did you also add the Ring of Phasing?

Now I have to add the new uniques- The Marquis de la Tour is my character- I was the first one to beat Steamband. I actually created a bunch of monsters and equipment for it as well. Good memories.

Now if I could actually beat Pos...

Maybe the skillmaster help page could use a word of caution about combining archery and riding? From my one attempt at this combo, there is a -30 to hit penalty to shoot when riding, which makes it pretty unplayable. Looking at the code calc_bonuses() in xtra1.c if I'm seeing it right, Beastmaster and cavalry classes can get a reduced penalty but skillmaster does not.

Bug:
If you have IDed your items via the Skillmaster's Loremastery (and probably through the Demigod's? Loremastery and maybe the Stone of Lore? too) town shops will still take your money if you're at the ones that "ID all"

Try deleting the PosChengband.INI file. And yes, PosChengband 5.0.5 not working on XP could be related to a Library file missing.

XP is a major security risk at this point. Beware. Recommend Installation of Linux if your machine won't run windows 10

Another bug having to do the with the oook ladder itself. Chardumps in HTML show an unusually increased turncount compared to chardumps in .TXT format given a Game Day and Game Time.

Also, PosChengband definitely needs a CMovies feature. ToME has it

Skillmaster balance

The Skillmaster's archery bonus seems like it's maybe too strong. They get the full +1.50 shots/round as soon as they've invested 5 points. For the actual Ranger and Archer classes, this firing speed bonus scales with clvl. In fact, a real Archer takes until CL38 to be better than a Skillmaster at the only thing his class does! (But by that point the Skillmaster has 7 more points worth of skills in addition to the archery.)
