Thanks for that Powerwyrm. He'd have had a perfect game if he had inscribed his weapon !a. (IIRC, that is what you are supposed to put on a digger, but with Delving ring, it's been a long.time since I used one.)

What is inscribing about, how do you know what to put on what, what does it do?

The { command. You can write a note on an item but usually it's about special inscriptions. !a is prompt before attack. @m1 on a spellbook, means the book will always be at 1 when you use the m command (stops confusion when items move in the inventory). Same with @w1 or @a1 for wield and aim etc. List in help files ?. Probably in a menu about macros

Thanks.

Why would !a be an improvement there?

The ! forces a dialog. E.g.: if you inscribe a rod of recall with !z the game would ask you whether you really want to zap that rod or not if you use the z command.

I usually inscribe spell books with !d!k!v!s which prevents me from mistakenly drop, destroy, throw or sell them.

I also inscribe some scrolls, rods, potions, and staves with !* which gives me a game prompt whenever I try to do anything with them. Very useful to prevent inadvertent usage of stuff.

!a (or possibly ^a--i don't remember which one works for this) will prevent accidental attacks using your weapon. We were discussing a pure pacifist character, where the object was to kill no monsters. He killed two creatures just by accident, running into them with Ringil.

Note: as !a or !^a or just plain ^a is an unfamiliar inscription to me, I just did a test, and none of these variations prevent attack with a weapon, at least in the regular typeset (maybe it works for rogue typeset?). Not even !* has any affect on attacks.

I asked a similar question many moons ago. http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?p=101945

An inscription of ^ was supposed to prevent walking with a weapon (or digger), but that didn't work either.

!a works in Sil, I use it quite often for pacifists. Sil forked off an older version of NPP. Never tried it in V

Nope, not even in the roguelike keymap.
