Operation Linkylink

i propose

to dive* back into the forums and dig up any old thread that contains instructions such as:
"how does stealth work"
"how to add monster memory"
"how do i calculate damage (or speed)"
"where are the stats bonus tables"

picking out the most thorough ones, then making a single post with all the links, and then permalinking this as a compacted book of knowledge for newcomers.

this would be part one of Operation Linkylink
(part two will be discussed later)

Alternatively, as we now have a pretty strong Googledoc, maybe add to this a summarized version of the info found on forums, i.e "stealth calculation and mechanics page"



*that WE collectively

I'm trying... perhaps storing these things in a wiki would be good?

I agree on the wiki. An updated newbies' guide would help, too. It is really painful to watch yet another player come onto angband.live and die the same way at dl 3.

Lo nd behold, Gwarl added a wiki to angband.live:
https://wiki.angband.live/

That is probably a good place to put such data.

i have to say, the wiki is far more than i could hope for, but since you guys are so cool, LET THE WIKI BE !
