Early changes doc

I know half and Scatha have mentioned this a few times, but I finally took a peek at the changelog from the pre-release years, found in lib/docs/early-changes.txt.

It's quite extensive (2200+ lines!) and has a lot of really neat stuff in it; I highly recommend taking a look!

Post your favorites here

Here's a fun one:

Code:
	- had to double Morgoth's health again because of the 3 Cottons-Barrat
Don't remember that battle taking place in the first age, although it sort of rhymes with dagor dagorath

Do you compete in the competition as well? Or too busy reading changelogs.

- worm masses no longer 'scream in pain'

- hopefully fixed the herb of rage bug(s)
- also, they can now make you cycle clockwise or anticlockwise

The relation between cycling and herbs... I don't get it.

I just finished a really long video series which will be released over the next 2-3 weeks, so I need a bit of a break before I hit the competition. I'm not sure I'll be able to clear 500' anyways, playing a Noldor again has spoiled me a bit lol

It's interesting to note that herbs of rage only gained the "whirlwind anywhere" effect pretty late into Sil's development. I'm pretty sure all of my brawler fighters would have been totally crushed in the throne room without that ability (or I would have been forced to take whirlwind attack, which is a bit trickier to use).

The one brawler who forgot to eat rage in the throne room died rather quickly -- although he was also Edain

Interesting that Sulraukar actually used to have even *more* protection

I've changed it to 1000 + 100 per level (used to be 500 + 100 per level). This means 38,000 turns before Morgoth and an average of 2,000 per level (including the turns for using stairs).
This means players used to be forced to descend sooner and more often?

- gwathraukar attacks are now 2d10 instead of 3d8
Another one...

In the objects/artefacts etc. file there is still an entry for item value. Is this used for anything in particular? (Thief item selection?)

I think one or two spots in the code (including thieves) check if it is zero or not. It is zero when we think of the item as an out and out bad item (rather than a mixed blessing). The positive numbers are vestigial.
