Rfe: Storm giants should be able to swim. Same for Elder storm giants. Why? Because of this: https://www.dndbeyond.com/monsters/storm-giant

Currently enemy Storm giants (and presumably Elder storm giants too) are unable to cross deep water.

Frog - Ring of Wizardry?

My Paladin just got a Ring of Wizardry from the Mushroom Quest with no attributes at all. As far as I can tell, its totally useless.

But, when I examine it, it shows a Score of 9.40K.

Is this score misleading? or is there a use for this ring that I'm not seeing?

If it has Easy Spell or Decrease Mana and you are a class that can't make use of them it wont show up.

Is there a reason someone would choose not to learn every available spell if they have the spell capacity? When I'm browsing the Ladder I sometimes see spellcasters who could have learned all their spells but for some reason didn't, and I'm curious if I'm missing some reason to do this.

One example (I've seen others):

I believe you can "waste" a spell by learning another one twice. That speeds up getting better at it afaik.

Thraalbee's right; but also, that character you cite switched his secondary realm, studied spells in the new realm, and then switched back to his original second realm having forgotten (and needing to re-study) every spell in it.

Sideways, are you accepting pull requests or patches? It looks like development has been largely you for the past few years, and there's an almost year-old PR that you didn't reply to. https://github.com/sulkasormi/frogcomposband/pull/277

He replied on the character dump I ran to test my changes: http://angband.oook.cz/ladder-show.php?id=24022. As well as in the thread itself http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=10280

He also pulled in one tweak I made to allow people to see all the possible Rage Mage spells in each book. Only being able to see the spells you can learn right now is silly on a class that consumes its books to learn spells.

So I don't feel like I've been ignored (and honestly I made the changes mostly for my own enjoyment, and figured I'd throw them up there for people to see).

I wrote in part of archolewa's pull request; and the rest of it got left in limbo because I did not want to either reject or accept it in its entirety, and was not sure which other bits to accept or adapt (even after discussing potential ideas with archolewa) without further personal play-testing of rage-mages, which I lacked the time for at that point. While development of FrogComposband is still continuing, I've been too busy with other stuff for much progress to happen lately.

In general I write all my own code and like it that way; but I will pay attention to any pull requests submitted, archolewa's one just couldn't be completely resolved without a much deeper look. If you want to submit a pull request (or propose code changes in some other way!) you are welcome to do so; but be aware I'll probably be even more busy in the next couple months than I've been so far.

Okay, thanks for explaining. If I submit a PR soon, it will probably just be code cleanup, so it shouldn't require any laborious playtesting to review. Autoexplore, even a very simple version of it, sure would be nice, but it would be challenging for me to implement. I'm decent at C, but I've never edited a 'band before.
