Also, staves of genocide are a great addition.

By the way, yesterday I gave the Vapor Quest some Doom Quest II treatment. This quest always takes forever and it has annoying hidden monsters, so here's a new, smaller, more lethal version: https://bpaste.net/raw/7ecede0e7d99

The most notable monster remains (weird fume) and there's now a shimmering vortex which can shriek and wake up all the air elementals which will quickly swarm you. It's harder so I upped the danger level to 40 and also added six rings and six amulets as loot inside, it could be worth trying it early for those.

May update or make some new quests too, I did this one impulsively.

I wonder if Chris would make the new quest idea official. Anyways, great to see a PosChengband update!

Looks nice and a bit less bothersome than the current, and with the vortex and water elementals, a bit more dangerous. Only point i might tune down a bit, are the 6 rings and 6 amulets as loot. 2-3 of each might be better. Or a chance that several are plain.

Really cool update. Somehow I've made it to level 40 for the first time ever on a char without dying yet so I'm going to try and beat the current version before updating. I doubt upgrading would effect my save but I kind of want to beat the game 'as is' if possible.

I can't wait to take advantage of ego lore. I kind of don't get point 2 of the update with pricing. My items never factored in unknown attributes. I always buy *id* when I think I will make a profit and the price goes up or down based on what the *id* reveals. Like, if I try to sell spear of hagan the price will be crap but if I *id* it then it will factor in the speed and the price will shoot up. But cursed items will maybe go down to 1 when they'd be worth a little bit unid'd. Either way I'm sure it fixes something so I'm looking forward to it too.

@Destro--That's something V gets right: get rid of the "shopping game" with higher gold drops and no sales of known items. (Unknown items are worth zero.)

Convincing chris to follow V's anti-shopping idea isn't going to happen

IMO V trivially gets this right because money is totally useless after DL20 or so.

wobbly will become famous soon enough
Had a magic mushroom polymorph me into a [doppelganger] today & the game thinks your mimic-ing it. Didn't risk a possible crash by un-mimicing.

Did you try to let the game...crash anyway?
