These look good. Haven't had a chance to incorporate them but they'll probably show up in a nightly soon.

So, these descriptions are (mostly) merged.

The spirit took me and I ended up changing some of them a little bit. Therem, let me know if you think what I ended up with was OK. I tried to strike a balance between the historical info about Ainu/Maia and the descriptive tone.

Thanks again for your prompt on this.

While you are at it, how about adding a new kind of opponent to this category?

the Angband Developer (multi-hued 'A')
You feel that the very fabric of reality is trembling as this entity approaches. It is wielding a keyboard with a reform layout <+5 speed> and is as immortal as Angband itself. It is magical, casting spells which summon Software Bugs and summon Laser Mice. It can alter the code to reduce all stats, alter the code to lower experience and alter the manual to confuse.

(Just joking.)

Magnate (brown 'A')
A well-intentioned but rather harried-looking man, he is busily changing everything you hold dear about the game. He moves too quickly for your tastes, and somewhat erratically. He is magical, casting spells which generate unbalanced artifacts, invoke storms of shoes, and rewrite the fabric of existence without apparently changing anything, about 1 time in 8. He can hit to improve your gear, hit to nerf your gear, and hit to suggest that you go ahead and make your own variant if you don't like what he's doing.

Fantastic.

Fantastic.
+1. Thanks Derakon! I particularly like "invoke storms of shoes".

I guess that it would be some kind of immortality to be incarnated as an Angband monster.

Aww, thanks guys!

d_m: sorry, but you do have to admit that Magnate's made more controversial changes than you have! People do sure love their items.
