That directory doesn't exist for my install. I'm going to remove everything and try a strict local install instead. Thanks for the help!

The comp page says fewest turns, but an old suggested by Donald that you seemed receptive to: "This probably won't be popular, but you could do a real-time race to the finish: first person to win from the time the contest starts gets the gold" was otherwise.
Still wondering about this ;/

It's fewest turns. I went with the simple thing, in the end.

Unconnected stairs! I suppose it was just a matter of time before I was forced into that. The idea behind them (not gameplay-wise) is that you enter a level, wander around for a while and then come-to, or notice something cool, and then the player kicks in?

Maybe Morgoth just skimped on building materials for the stairs - they always collapse behind you.

Or maybe your character needs to go on a diet and not break the stairs.



Fatty. ^_^

In a non-persistent dungeon, especially one where the number of ways down is larger than the number of ways up, no physical interpretation of stairs can be made to make sense. Think of them as random level teleporters, and monsters don't follow because they know they won't be teleported to the same place you are sent to.

Whether the receiving end needs to be another level teleporter isn't clear, and there is room for a gameplay option to describe that.

Oh, I'm hurt. I moved the top of the character screen up by one line to make room on the flags screen for more flags, but forgot to update the chardump code. Oops.

Since this is a just started character is it legal to just continue using the same savefile and quickstart new characters? This would save you from having to delete and copy savefiles everytime you start a new character.

(Thinks...how do I not betray my ignorance of quickstart...) "That's a good question. What do other people think?"
