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.)

Early benefit is pretty high, true - but you've glossed over a few things.

Archer has more thb (82/36) rather than (70/30). Archer has a higher life rating of 111 (that's equivalent of 2.75 points spent on life). Built-in create ammo is another point. Finally, archer has built-in melee skill worth about 3 points (as far as thn goes anyway).

Edit: but to be fair, skillmaster gets some extra bonuses to hit which end up more than an archer gets I think. And to damage, which is pretty big.

But! Archer gets 0 breakage eventually. Which is not that big of a deal with create ammo at hand.

Yeah it's kind of funny because Archer is the one class who really DOESN'T care about getting zero breakage. A bowmaster would be elated if his precious rare seeker ammo was unbreakable. An Archer has 500 spare arrows in his house and doesn't really care if he loses some.


Actually my current character is a skillmaster archer-clone with craft magic slapped on top. Even on classes without any special archery bonuses craft archery is amazing in the earlygame because of how well shooters scale with enchantment, but if you throw in +1.5 shots and a supply of seeker ammo it just gets ridiculous. Plus when I find book 4 I'll be able to cast crafting to add egos to all my seeker arrows, then combine with weaponmastery and manabranding for some truly absurd damage. (Oh yeah! Skillmasters with level 5 Craft can cast mana branding, which is unavailable for rangers, monks, mage-warriors, and other hybrid types. )

Turns out that some of these already had winners in Hengband or Entroband. However, some of them were part of chris's variant and could use a winner...the Rage-Mage comes to mind...

chem if you have more ideas, you should team up with chris!!

EDIT: The numbers, by the way, are the DLs of the deepest unique killed.

You know what's missing from the Skillmaster's selection?

1. Hex Magic
2. Rage-Mage technique

Hey Chris, add these for the Skillmaster in the next release!!!
