Big if true.

No, I don't, you're just wrong about what's fun, i.e. you have bad taste re: video games.

Yeah, item theft is good.

The good thing about an open source game like Angband is that you can take the current source and change it so it suits you better. Many people have done this. One of the reasons that the major restructure was recently completed (modulo the outstanding bugs that PowerWyrm keeps finding) is to make that process easier. Doing this is a constructive way of handling any fundamental objections you might have with the game. Many current features have entered the game after being successful in variants.

Of course, discussion on the forums is also good for the game. But please try and keep it civil.

But Nick, if you change the source so that it suits your tastes, you're no longer playing a game with the pedigree and imprimatur of the original.

...I think this is sarcasm?

Anyway, if you don't like a game and you have the power to change it, then change it. Why should you play something you don't like?

Nothing beats drinking a bad bottle of genuine champagne then bitching about how bad it is. Bonus points for spending extra.

This thread just stole 5 minutes of my life.

e: if Angband was more of a puzzle game, it might be interesting to have somewhat overpowered monsters that the player could negate by bribing. Smeagol? Give him food, and he disappears from that level. Bandit- throw him some wine or an item above a certain value and he might turn non-hostile.

Better try to kill it then so you can get your time back. If only you could bank your time. Have you read Momo?

Never heard of it, but it looks really interesting. Thanks for the recommendation. Well worth the 5 minutes.
