player ghosts

Does anyone else miss the 'player ghost' feature of Angband past?

--For those who might not have experienced it, when a character died some of its stats, along with the character's name, would be saved in a file and it could reappear in future games as a zombie. It was a hoot!

That would be rock hard awesome. I've never played a version with ghosts, and I would personally love to see it.

One day they'll come back, but I don't know when.

I'm all for player ghosts, but as in my previous post, I'd prefer my 1st level characters not get attacked on the town level by uber ghosts! Its a feature that I really miss, though.

I also miss Wormtongue dropping upto 8 excellent items.

[QUOTE=wastedyouth;7294]I'm all for player ghosts, but as in my previous post, I'd prefer my 1st level characters not get attacked on the town level by uber ghosts!

That's funny...I would rather lose a 1st level character, right out of the gate, to a former self, rather than lose a high level character to one. I like the irony of going to the general store, buying the lantern, heading out to kill Morgoth, and getting whacked into the dust by a familiar looking zombie.

Time to roll a new character!

Since no one has voted against ghosts, I thought I should put my vote in. I'd really rather play Angband without ghosts. I think of ghosts as a Nethack thing. They work well in Nethack, but I don't think they would in Angband. Maybe have it as a birth option to have player ghosts. Birth options are a good thing, I like having a choice about this kind of thing.

I think this is a very PC solution This way everybody is happy and if your ghost kills you, you have no one to blame but yourself
