This makes me wonder if we could at some point add sangband "create stuff from raw materials" -scheme in vanilla. It's one of the most fun part of that variant.

There is, or at least was, a birth option for no_stores. Unfortunately, it closes the home as well as stores so it was too harsh to consider. If you go that far, you might as well play full ironman.

I cannot see Takkaria going for a set of multiple different ironman store options, but perhaps that one could be modified to be more interesting.

Ah, so there are two of us. Only two though, I think.

Agreed. Every time I play S I want to import forging into V. We would start without the essences, and just add the chunks and a clev- and class-based chance.

@Eddie: I would support changing birth_no_stores so that the home still worked. Let's canvas some other views ...

I have toyed with the idea of a "forgemaster" class or whatever instead of ranger. Prolly along the lines of whatever you guys are talking, haven't tried that variant so don't know for sure ...

Wow, if you have never played S then you are really missing out. Give it a try - try a dwarf and focus on putting all your xp into wrestling and forging, and see how you like it. You should start finding your first forging materials around dl10-15.

Make that three. OTOH, I don't think it was a terrible loss to lose haggling, but I really miss those discounts stores used to have. Blade of Chaos (ultimate weapon) (extradiced5) (+mucho tohit, +mucho todam) {90% off}
