"The Great Wyrm of Power breathes...

...raw magic. You die."

Alright... just after implementing the new spell code from V3.3 in my variant and goofing around with a test character, I got this little surprise.

Of course, this won't happen in regular Angband since there are no Great Wyrms of Power (and no monster with the BR_MANA flag... yet), but still worth to mention: before the big refactor on spells, breathing mana was capped at 250 damage. With the new code, the cap is set at 1600 (!)...

Heh, we were going for "harder game" and I guess we got it.

Maybe we should add GWoP to V? Patches welcome

It would answer the question "Where does PDSM come from ?", but I think some questions are better left unanswered

I don't think that "harder game" needs to come about by adding more insta-death chances...

IIRC it's been 1600 for a long time, although no monster has ever breathed it. What made you think it was ever 250?

It may be true that the game needs to be harder, but I really don't think that this should be done by adding more "breathe and die" monsters.
