Info leak

I'm pretty sure this bug is already well documented; however, I feel the need to show off this time:

People are now voting who were not yet born the last time I found the One Ring.

Given finite TO, I may not survive putting it on, but I'm doing it anyway.

The subset of those who are currently alive, and those who were alive at a time I found The One Ring, is an empty set.

You mean it saying "Ring of Power" from a distance, or failing the "it's kandrc, don't drop the One" check?

It used to be that the One Ring always showed as "a Plain Gold Ring". If we're going to fix anything, that's the fix I'd like to see. I don't have a problem with the player being able to say "wait a second, that's the One Ring!" from a distance. Gotta build that anticipation before you hand them a legendary artifact that hardly ever gets generated!

+1. I much preferred the "Plain Gold Ring" flavor. And how many times did I get excited about finding a "Gold Ring" only to realize, oh, wait, it wasn't a "plain gold" ring.
