Acid does not melt things!

Forgive me if this has already been addressed, or if it's not even Angband I'm complaining about here... but I seem to recall that you used to be able to find ego weapons "of Melting" which were really acid-branded... For some reason that always irked me... Acid does not melt things! Heat melts things, acid dissolves them! Granted "of Dissolution" sound silly, but how about "of Disintegration"? Or just "of Acidity"? If I'm not mistaken, right now you have "of Acid", but then I find ego weapons so rarely because I just suck at playing Angband, so maybe this hasn't even been fixed yet :P Just thought I'd bring it up

I think this was changed about three years ago.

Some things, like flesh, don't melt when subjected to heat. They do however appear to melt, when subject to acid.

Where are the items of toasty warmness? What? It's cold in the dungeon!

I just want to know why my mana gets so drained from sleeping that I need 3 or 4 potions to restore it

You begin to feel more enlightened...
You have no more Scrolls of Newspaper.

(I only seem to be posting in silly threads nowadays, sorry about that...)
