re Cursed Missile Ammo ... i only got it the one time , although i have had LOADS of "you feel the <armor/weapon> you are carrying is good! you wield the <armor/weapon> .oops it feels deathly cold"

thats why i said i had to check back ... that occurred on a Dead Ironband char and i have played about 8 chars since ....

Antoine:

will you be adding the functionality to reuse the last played character's stats ?

or is this an Ironband (or NPP, not having played the latest one ) feature ?

Nick:

after i started up IronBand again i have run into cursed arrows ,
the way it works is that you can fire the cursed ammo, but ONLY the cursed ammo... trying to fire any other ammo from the quiver brings up "Your Quiver is cursed"....

i think thats what you meant by FA/O implementing fire/throw cursed quivered ammo ...

Thanks for clarifying regarding the ammo. It makes sense to only be able to fire the cursed ammo, which mostly just means that you should pay attention if you equip ammo that you can't fire. You could be a bit more generous and require that the ammo be of the type you can shoot for the curse to be active. Question: can you throw cursed ammo from the quiver?

I do plan to reassess ammo cursing. Not sure what the best implementation is. Any suggestions appreciated...

I hadn't planned to add this - But could, I guess. Is it something you want? Which other variants is it in?

Andrew's UnAngband - the opening screen has an option "Quick Start the game using the same choices as the last character".
with a YES / NO

I like the implementation (no clue which variant it is) where cursed ammo backfires (perhaps only one is several shots). Lots of fun. However, firing every single piece of ammo to get rid of it is tedious and is an advantage for the boring practice of wielding only one piece as a test. Either already the first backfiring shot should move all the stack to backpack or something else should be devised.
