Been using the Windows build on Ubuntu through WINE for a few versions and haven't had any issues.

May try that next, thanks--I'm reluctant to mess around with reinstalls and versions while I have a living character, just a bit nervous about something going wrong with the savefile...

Ok BG rules when you get a nice melee weapon--managed to pick up Dagmor and it instantly transformed me from "mostly doing well, but burning through consumables in hard fights" to "shredding everything that dares to challenge me"

Of course I get the sword with the poison brand right before I advance to the level where I can learn the poison brand ritual, though.....

Someday you will find the Glaive of Pain and it will be glorious. Glorious.

Not today though, I still didn't have free action, thought I could sneak through using Grim Purpose till I found some, and that timed out with a bunch of ghouls in LOS.........RIP.

Playing a Necro now which has also been cool, but are there no items anywhere to detect doors/traps/stairs? I haven't found a single scroll or rod which does that with either of the last characters. Assuming it's a deliberate choice if true, but it makes it a lot harder to dive to the depth you want to be--my necro is CL7 and has not yet dropped down to DL3 on account of having found no down stairs yet.

Traps, no. Doors and stairs, nothing AFAIR outside of mapping effects.

I agree (down) stair detection should be available to all pure casters, directly, via mapping, or perhaps as a side effect of a "seek prey" spell for necros: "You feel there is more beneath your feet."

Even like items of Detect Stairs would be cool....for a lot of characters I like to play by diving hard and dangerous and that's way more difficult if you're constantly in need of Magic Mapping and/or Deep Descent to do it.

Better to give Mass Banishment/Life to a shopkeeper rather than consuming them randomly. At least in the shop, you have a chance to buy it back (and when you're low enough to find them, you often have a lot of gold...)

what @sffp said. It's easily worth the normal store cost to get ID on high level scrolls and potions. Except, that is, on *acquirement* and !experience.
