[Z] interesting artifact names

I found "The Leather Jacket 'Zaxxon' on level 52, continued to dive, and on level 53 I found "The Hard Studded Leather of Super Zaxxon" !!

What are the chances of this happening?!? Or something is programmed in, perchance? Now, I wonder if there was a sequel to Super Zaxxon.

I haven't found any *Identify* scroll yet on these levels, but from I can see right now, the Super Zaxxon appears to be much better.

hehe. Haven't played Z+ in years.

My ideal variant would be Poscheng but with the random towns, worldmap, dungeons, and quests that you get in Z+

In PosChengband, you'd see a randart named 'God Mode' every now and then!
My best try at PosChengband 7.0.0's nightmare-mode on

Early in the game when I had less than 100,000 gold I saw some kind of Axe of a "HoLy Smoke" for possibly over 1M gold, and if I had the money I would've bought it because it had some truly awesome attributes.

In any case, Zaxxon turned out to be a middling artifact worth only about 13k, (+2 con, cold/conf/chaos, res_evil) but Super Zaxxon is a keeper with a very nice list of attributes and capabilities.
