I like the idea of being able to drain lesser undead for some benefit to the caster. What if you could use them for healing? I feel like that would do a good job of making them non-threats in the early game, since any damage they dealt you could heal while also dealing damage to them.

Maybe something like:
* Drain clvl HP from target unthinking undead monster.
* If attempted on a thinking (visible to ESP) undead, either it fails outright or they get a strong saving throw.
* If successful, the spell refunds its SP cost.

Not sure about the spells in Sangband (which are partially just the O/FA stuff) but the blood domain skill has a bunch of bonus if you're looking for ideas. Most of them are for warriors but there's resists and detects too.

Expected result: early undead become cheap targets and may even be situationally beneficial (if you happen to find one when you need the mana)

Later undead you still have the option of slurping a bit of mana which wont do real damage, but might fuel a real spell.

Completely obsoletes once Power Sacrifice or an unmanagable pile of !mana and _magi make the the whole mana recovery thing laughable.
That looks promising.

This branch has now been incorporated into current master (post 4.1.3), so the latest build with the new classes is on the nightlies page.

Druids' Lightning Strike has hilariously broken targeting mechanics- it ignores both range and LOS.

Why settle for a hockeystick when you can randomly bombard the far end of the map?

Also, Meteor Swarm isn't hitting monsters is it targeted through, so you cant get the kill-and-keep-going effect unless you fire cardinal directions.

Is there a problem with the nightlies? Looks like the last build is from 22 July.

Crash Bug: Just used "Command" on an Ancient Green Dragon, successfully took control, and commanded the AGD to attack a neighboring AGD. Instant game crash.

Yes, me. That was the last time I did anything. In fact, that actually had me thinking the page was broken for a little while...

Bug: @, a Dunadan Rogue, successfully cast "Teleport Self" from The Book of Trickery. The information for that spell now shows the word "range", but without any number for the range.
