Weird feelings of Angband

Anybody else find it funny that you walk into a room and there's some vicious ancient dragon all snuggled up asleep with a bunch of cave bears or something.

Or the fact I only seem to have two ring fingers in Angband. I should have at least eight inventory slots for my rings, I always think. Hell, I'd even try one on my toe.

What about when you kill some orc unique and it drops a powerful artifact. I always think why was he just carrying that around in his napsack, if he'd worn it then I'd be dead.

I also think my clvl50 mages might have memorised some of the spells from their beginner's magic books by now. How come I need the book when I've already performed the spell 700 times.

When you've finally cleared a massive vault with superb treasure feelings, does anybody else go around opening their presents like a kid at Christmas singing Santa Claus is coming to town in their head. What to do with 10 suits of elven armour, three dragon armours, four spell books I can't even read and more Defender weapons than I can shake a fist at? Oh yeah, and the obligatory ring of speed that's slower than the one you're wearing. I'll probably gift them on to the black market. Happy Christmas Ragbad the kobold


Ok, who else?

You should try some Nethack some time; in that game you can experience first-hand the infamous gnome with the wand of death instakill.

Angband is already frustrating enough without it, I believe.

We need that logical nethack polymorph system in Angband. So you can transform a newt on a floor into arch-lich, a powerful undead creature who has existed thousands of years and becoming a master of spells and evil deeds.

Why don't the people in town ever try to attack me with weapons or wands that I leave on the ground?

Do fear your wishes, sir.

What you proposing is transformation Angband into Nethack.
These games are quite different.

Angband is Angband. Nethack is Nethack.

IMHO, of course.

I assume you were commenting my post.
I was joking and I'm 99,999999999% sure developer(s) know that too. If a wand of polymorph could create an arch-lich on level1 with one zap at a centipede, I would quit playing myself.

Actually, in Nethack, a friend of mine was killed by a Kobold at low level wielding Stormbringer. The sword spawned on the floor, the Kobold stumbled upon it, picked it up, and wielded it, then my friend ran in to the Kobold. "It's just a Kobold" and Stormbringer drained him to death.

Doesn't get more Nethacky than that.
