Feet or Level ?

When confronted with a message like ...
"This monster is usually found ..."
how do you want it to continue?

Feet, for me, only because I started roguelikes playing Moria, which was in feet only. I voted both, though, since the newest beta has both. Doesn't seem like that big of a deal.

I prefer feet, mostly because it makes the dungeon seem only half as deep.

Both. We should all get it on!

But, seriously, I think both is better.

Level. If I wanted to do math, I'd actually be doing work at work and not *banding.

Kilotons. Everything's better when measured in kT!

The reason I don't like meters much is that it doesn't go well with the 'historical-fantasy feel' of the game.

In fact underwater levels should be measured in fathoms.
