I love PCB, but its hundreds of spoilery coded interactions are generally ones you would never notice nor try nor remember without using code to see what is out there. It's not like people will magically discover to equip main gauches in hand 2 for a free AC bonus at no cost, or that player liches get reductions in racial liferating as they increase in form, or whatever.

Reminder for Chris for next update - Please fix the Chaos-Warrior patron bug. Otherwise, all players are stuck with Slortar at birth!

Question Throwing & Permacurses

I had an idle thought while contemplating potential skillmaster builds:

How does their throwing skill interact with permacursed weapons? You aren't necessarily guarenteed that your weapon comes back, or that you catch it, after all.

Of course, there's this one in 5.0.5 - ambushes occasionally spawn sleeping monsters letting you escape via '<'.

Can we have the option for random race/class/magic/etc selections again in 5.0.6?

I have a question for v 5.0.5. Where are the dungeons and ironman settings? Somehow I can not find these anymore. Do I need to edit the INI file?

But what if I don't want to be spoiled about the spoiler tags? What then? I think you should put your spoiler tags in spoiler tags at the very least.

Regalia has the right idea = That's what I meant - Spoilers within Spoilers Though, an aforementioned spoiler alert is sufficient IMO

Yo chris. I think launcher stats need redoing, they seem really biased against crossbows. Compare these two weapons:

w) The Short Bow 'Aflatoxin' (x2.50) (+8,+20) (+3) {PoDi;Xs Robin Hood}
x) The Heavy Crossbow 'Black Star' (x4.70) (+19,+18) (+4) {Sp;Sh;Xs}

First one is a short bow with 68k score, second one is a heavy crossbow with 130k (!) score. With plain ammo the short bow does 3.42 shots per round for 427 damage, the crossbow does 1.50 shots for 267 damage. That aint right.

Edit: apparently this is partly due to Rangers getting extra shots with bows and not xbows, but still.

Do Potions of Learning and those "Scrolls that let the player learn more spells" (I can't remember what they're called) work on Skillmasters?? i.e. Will the Skillmasters get extra points from these??
