Sorry to spam.

There's one annoying bug I have discovered. Casting Haste Self while already hasted results in haste wearing off very shortly afterward. No idea why, but it's consistent.

Not a bug. Casting Haste Self while still hasted only gets you an extra 1d5 turns of speed - you're much better waiting until the haste goes and then casting it again (apart from the danger, of course).

Awake monsters occasionally seem to stand still, as if they were somehow blocked from approaching, even though they should easily be able to find their way to you. The latest example was a master yeek who pursued me and then just stoopped 30' (straight line) from me and would not approach. He did cast a spells every once in a while. Is there some AI that makes spell-casters prefer to stay in darkness or out of (perceived) line of sight (though in darkness, I could see him with infra vision). Or maybe it's casting spells that do nothing and give no message. It doesn't happen very often, but every once in a while.

Two possibilities here:
  1. Monsters with ranged attacks have a desired range
  2. Some spellcasters will run away if they run out of mana
I'm guessing number 1.

I've seen similar behaviour - the lead member of a pack of demons, say, will stop pursuit until you go a square or two either closer or away.

Once one monster makes a move, though, the rest always follow.

Competition 105 is now officially over - congratulations to ewan for winning the comp and going close to getting a game winner with a really hard character. Honourable mention also to Matthias for getting third by taking a specialty and then abandoning his character...
