I find PDSM maybe once every 100 games... and I'm amazed to see people finding PDSM of speed +5, or even two IDENTICAL PDSMs in the same game.

Someone mentioned maybe a couple weeks ago (maybe it was you PowerWyrm?) that version 4.0.5 they were swimming in top artifacts. In a recent game I found 3 or 4 DSMs of speed. I had never seen any DSMs of speed before that game. So that was... weird. I also found my first PDSM during that game. I think it was also that same game I found two rings of power. In another recent game I found one ring of power and two BDSMs of Craftmanship, one Elvenkind (rDark), and one CDSM of speed <+5>. So basically, all the items just mentioned were found in 2 games where I reached depths where such items are found.

Even better than BT? I found BT at DL105 in the same game I found Ringil I believe (also 4.0.5). Surely BT is the best protective item in the game? Thank you for not mentioning other rare items by their full names!

One question I have: Some time ago (more than a year I think) Casp was a common armor to find, but now Himring is super common. I never see Casp anymore. It used to be I never saw Himring. Now I see Himring *every game*. Was a change made?

One difference, maybe, is the speed of play. We would need data on the turncounts in addition to data on the ego and artifacts found. I suspect grinding may have something to do with the difference.

it wasn't a power-, it was a white dragon scale mail of speed +5. i assume that since the -of speed can go to +5, then the PDSM can also be of speed +5. i had only ever seen before a speed +3, which is already rare among the speed bonus, which is normally +2, and -of speed in itself is the rarest, with dwarven second rarest, craftsmanship third, and plain ol' scalemail being last.

There's also of stealth which I found in my latest game before I died to an unresisted nether breath from a demilich because I stupidly decided to take on an Undead Pit.
