It is an random created artifact which are not listed in Artifact Lists. So it is no bug.

That's right. There are two kinds of artifacts:
[1] Fixed artifacts. These are always the same (up to extra random resists, etc) and are hard coded.

[2] Random artifacts. These are completely random, usually suck, but are sometimes useful.

The list artifacts command only displays fixed artifacts.

HTH,
Chris

Yeah, I inherited brokenness from Hengband. See this post: http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=2648. Basically, you just need to edit makefile.std as appropriate and then just nmake it directly.

HTH,

So, I need some advice. Do I need permission to fork a new variant? What is the best way to do this? Where should I host the project? (I was thinking code.google.com). Is anyone besides me interested in a fork of Hengband?

I also need ideas. What changes would you like to see? Go crazy here, but realize that my C coding skills are not that great, and I might not be *able* to give you what you want!

And I need a name. I was thinking of Chengband for Chris's Hengband, but that would be inappropriate if other people are going to help out. Ideas?

Finally, I don't want to change the style of the variant too much. Hengband is a hard variant. It should continue to be so. Things like a random speed system are here to stay. In fact, my motivation for making changes is that Hengband has a couple of loopholes that make the game too easy
Farewell Chris

You will never read these words, but I and many others appreciate all that you have done
