"You cant remember how to read"

Whoever put that in should be banned from committing to angband for a month after a severe beating with a Cluestick.

Right. Clearly it should have said "You, Kant, remember how to read."

Though I don't think we have very many deceased philosophers playing Angband...

I'm all for insisting on the correct use of apostrophes, but isn't that going a little far?

The cluestick would be for taking away the ability to read scrolls. Its pretty stupid since you can still cast spells ... from a book. And a great recipe for instakills.

So, you are proposing to make it impossible to cast spells from a book as well? It's harsh, but it might be interesting, although it seems really hard on full casters.

As for instakills, I've never been close to death from amnesia.

I too, have always been amused by the 'You can't remember how to read' message. Probably it needs to be spoken aloud in the sound directory too

Hey, not fair! I had the smiley on the "can't read" quote, not on the instakill.

As for whether it's truly dangerous, how often do you die to:
Beholders and other high-level 'e'
Saruman
Adunaphel
High level lich
Phantom
Mind flayer

because of amnesia?
Yes, I've lost characters (usually mages) to some of them, but it wasn't because I couldn't read scrolls.

It happens instantly. You may not see it coming. You may not even know that it has happened. Amnesia only compounds the problem .

Well, the comp char died to a nice combo of hound gravity attack and amnesia. Mind flayers have become Uber White Icky Things.
