are still faster and ents/thunderlords/dragons are still slower)

- New Hydra race
- Make stores always accept items with unknown runes in no-selling
- Fix outside of a couple of vaults
- Change vegetal monster base symbol to 'l', add 'l' monsters to the Old Forest

Files updated: binaries only (source will come with first beta).
Files are available for download at the usual location: http://powerwyrm.monsite-orange.fr

Note: Gervais tileset hasn't been updated yet, so if you want to test this just stick to ASCII.

Development will continue until I catch up with Vanilla changes, add remaining PWMAng features and tackle the planned issues from Git repository.

Something I wanted to ask about V: why are rings of escaping nerfed? Even at <+4> the rings were pretty bad in my opinion. At <+2> they are a veritable joke. Anyway, I think I'm going to try out your variant soon.

Some people occasional dual wield them, apparently. But they mess up spell success rate along with melee, so there's not much use IMO. Ring of Mouse is way, way better.

I've also nerfed this rings in Tangaria (~ year ago) - they still give +4 speed, but you pay a very good price for it.. Spoiler could be found there: https://tangaria.com/data/objects/.. +4 speed is imba at the start of the game, especially for archer =)

Yeah, once you make the decision to give permanent speed on early-game gear, you find yourself with a very tricky balance problem. In Vanilla the downside doesn't even stack, so if you're going to wear one there's very little reason not to wear two.
