For anyone who may have missed it, some people have suggested that I should be the next Angband maintainer. So I thought everyone should have a chance to see what a Nick-as-maintainer future might hold. I'm going to do a series of individual topic posts; please comment frankly and fearlessly. If this happens, I want it to be with everyone's eyes open.

So here's a quick outline of what I would hope to do:
  • Wait for the release of 3.5
  • Work out who is interested in contributing to development and in what capacity
  • Do a massive restructure of the code with no gameplay (or language!) change. takkaria has done a huge amount of this (pretty much unsung) already; I plan to be fairly revolutionary here
  • Tackle the outstanding thorny issues - traps/searching/perception, ID, squelch
  • Open up discussion on *big* issues - combat system, dungeon generation and structure, new races and/or classes, new ports, monster and item balance

That'll do for an appetiser
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
