Ideas I thought up


In response to the Sticky thread about new idead there are some things I thought up (some inspired by DnD, some inspired by other variants):
  1. New weapons: the Kama, the Khukiri
  2. All monsters flee at aprox. the same time. You might include a random factor in that to make for brave and cowardly enemies;
  3. In Zangband you have undergrond water and lava streams. It might be that they also are present in V, but they are quite rare in the lower levels (1-20).
  4. The novice paladin has abilities that a novice pc paladin hasn't. Perhaps the paladin could have a low-level curse at his disposal.
  5. Lots of arrows "dissapear" when shot, which seems strange to me. Perhaps they could be made "broken" and unusable?
  6. I take it that the unique "Shrek, the Ogre" is out of the question?
  7. A "history overview", like in some variants, that shows key levels reached, uniques killed and artifacts found - one that is also shown in the character dump.

Is there an archive of ideas that have been pondered and disucssed?



PS: Will try to put them on the wiki.
Anyone seen my Longsword (4d5)?

1. No idea what that is.
2. Could work, but it could getfrustrating to have to always go chasing down fleeing enemies all the time.
3. *shrug* if I wanted to play a game with lava and such then I'd play Z or NPP.
4. True, that is odd
5. This is already changed in the next upcoming release (to "the arrow breaks").
7. It's slated to go into the next release.

A list of all the future plans is at:
