That might explain why I found 3 pairs of Boots of Speed in my most recent game, before CL30.

I've got a paladin on level 79 in 3.2.0 and I haven't found a single pair of boots of speed yet...

the ring of speed +13 is making up for it though

You might not generate Leather Boots of Speed, per se, but you will see an unusual amount of ']' Leather Boots being generated in drops, vaults, etc.

After toning down the value in object.txt, the current game I am seeing a better balance in the drops. Arrows & Bolts are still abundant, but, I'll live with it.

In a related story, Imelda Marcos tweeted recently that Angband 3.2.0 was her favorite game.

She is famous for the amount of money she spent on shoes, before her husband was ousted from control of the Philippines. Googling on Imelda shoes I got an article in Time Magazine. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/ar...961002,00.html

[edit] That article may not be worth reading, but it shows that the story of her excess was widespread.
