So many good replies!

MattB & Pete Mack: Yeah, it's not necessary to have a perfect set of gear and I probably overthink this part. Still, it's amazing on the occasions when it all comes together.

Nick: Thanks. I'll give this a try and report back on the results.

archolewa: I haven't tried an ironman game yet but I probably should.

fph: I almost made a Marie Kondo joke in one of my previous posts on this. Yours made me lol.

I would strongly recommend everyone try it a couple of times. It's amazing how much of an impact losing access to the town has on the game. Lots of gear that you mostly ignore (like Staves of Cure Light Wounds) become valuable. The game's pace is *much* faster. You have to be much more conscious of resource consumption in the early game.

Took me a few games to get used to it, but now that I have, I could never go back to the town.

Only thing I do wish is that Vanilla had dungeon stores, like some variants. It'd be kind of nice to have something to do with all that gold.

If you do mess with this file (or any of the other datafiles), the best practice is to leave the original in place, and put your edited version in your user directory (~/.angband/Angband in linux, lib\user in Windows, ~/Documents/Angband in MacOS).
This is working pretty well. The only drawback I've found so far is that if there are 30+ items in your home, one of them (and possibly more) won't be labeled properly, so it's impossible to get or inspect them. However, if you remove one of the items above it in the list, the object in question will then be labeled and can be retrieved. All in all, not bad!

Hi Jay, the trick is to position to the item of interest using arrow keys etc. Then g or l followed by <enter> work.

You have 4 staves of magic mapping with 4 charges.

You pick up a staff of magic mapping.

You have 5 staves of magic mapping with 11 charges.

Of course it's worst with the weaker races. So close to being able to do the drop dance but now you're stuck with the weight or you sacrifice charges.

Applies to Teleport and any number of other stacking inv.

That is annoying. I turn off that option when playing a character that can cast Recharge.

Accidentally reading a scroll of mass banishment in town when you meant to read WoR.
