How do I change default birth options permanently?

So after playing angband for a while, I switched to randarts and I like it

I would like to make it so I don't have to change it in the birth options for every character I start.

There much be a way to edit a text file to change the default...

If you play a new game from your old dead character file, it will have the same birth options.

It also chooses the same name and save file - it's awkward.

I'd rather just edit a startup file or something.

I believe when it loads up a dead/retired character you get the choice to make a new one (read the bottom options), your birth options as well as keymaps/etc. will all be carried over while you can choose a new race/class/stat allocation and finally name.

Haha, I'm with you. I resisted playing randarts for ages mostly just for nostalgia reasons. Then I played a couple with randarts and realised just how OP they are, now I can't go back (I'm also a bit sloppy as a player, so it balances out). Sometimes I forget to set my birth options and find one of the thancs and just quit out.

The best thing about randarts is the number of torch/Phial artifacts. Without it's just the same old, same old and they're all a bit crap. Imagine getting +5 speed, +5 con with a Galadriel alternative

I love Randarts. They actually changed my view on RPGs in general. Once I started playing with randarts in Angband, I was so excited by the prospect of finding artifacts that nobody else will ever find. It actually kind of ruined loot in any other games to some degree.
