Hopped in at CL25 and had a quick moment of panic when I realized I left my nether resistance back at town. But then I remembered that handy spell ... With only 200hp and base speed 0 it was risky, and my 3% fail Hellish Flame failed routinely. Plus, I got a gadzillion double moves, including one double curse good for 170 damage or so. But in the end, the quest was doable.

So, once the quest was finished, I set about identifying the loot, only two discover 2 speed boosting rand art weapons right by my starting position (+3 and +2). Damn, +5 speed would have really helped! Ah well, I got my book too, so I hardly mind :)

Here's a nasty bug: Evasion fails against Plasma Bolts! So, 9 headed hydra equals good. 11 heads, bad!

Nether ball is 193 for 20. Nexus ball is 214, but fails at a whopping 40%, though polymorph demon gives +3 Int, so -9% fail rates :)

Wait, that's not really a bug, is it? Evasion isn't supposed to work against bolts and curses, otherwise it's too overpowered.

BTW, what makes Bards so end-game powerful? The invulnerability? They get a 550 damage sound ball, but no Eat-Magic to back it up...

No, its not a bug, its a joke!

Yes, I had the 550hp sound ball in mind. Mana Storms only damage, while sound balls incapacitate your foes! But you're right, Eat Magic would be nice ... I'm not saying bards are better than High Mages :)

I'm toying with removing the Passwall spell from Craft. Would that be wrong?

I would fully support moving Passwall from Craft to Sorcery. The latter really needs a boost, whereas the former is by far one of the best schools.

I'm carefully working the top of the lair, and it is starting to pay off. A ring of lightning for those storm wyrms, and I would really like an acid ring too! Stupid Fafner breathed every time ... His fire was not so bad, but his poison? Ouch. Even with evasion, that guy was deadly. 9 breaths before I could kill him. In contrast, a ticked off Storm Wyrm might breathe only twice before being dispatched, so I'm not sure what was going on with Fafner.

Spell damage is about 10 hp/sp, which is not too bad. I trained my deadly kisses up to mastery, so that will have to hold me over until my fourth book.

Hey, I want style points for my cool weapon! I read a scroll of "mumblus incognitus" and this is what I got? Pshaw!

Its probably too early for Spell Power, but I can't resist. My Kiss is 277hp for 24sp (and -8 Str/Dex/Con).

90% spell power? -12 Str/Dex/Con? Geez, I might as well be wearing Beruthiel! Nah, probably 8 pts of spell power is enough.

I'm a walking resistance hole with lousy speed. Oy! Where's all the good armor at?

Well, maybe my Bloodthirster can help me find something good. If you can't kill them, its nice to be able to dominate them!

Hellfire Tome!!!

Now, to just level up. At the moment, I need to content myself with 1k of nether damage. Even evil monsters take 500, so its worth using on anything not resistant (or immune) to nether. Next level gives Blood Curse and with +60% spell power, that should do the job nicely.

[CL43:DL72] 08:42
Blood Curse! Wow, that's some fierce damage. Still better to kill Mycen with Nether Storm, though. It was close, even though I killed it in 5 moves. Evasion is so OP.

Hmm ... with all this spell power, Hand of Doom is actually useful. I've never had it work before in Hengband!

Ah, my true form at last. Humans may suck as a race, but that doesn't mean one has to stay one! Actually, I'm really digging the evasion. It shines against big dragons for breaths that you normally can't double resist.

I conclude from this guy that spell power is probably a bit too common. Of course, Daemon has combos to negate the bad effects of spell power ... Heck, I could probably squeeze in Beruthiel in a pinch (but beware Dispel Magic).

As a result, High Mages are capped at 3 for intrinsic spell power. Also, amulets, rings and arcane weapons are biffed, making it harder to get higher values (You'll be lucky to get 3 spell power on a single item), and the two uber arts (Beruthiel and Kaschei) are now much more rare.

Originally, I added spell power to make it easier for spellcasters to survive in the mid levels, not to make the end game easier (They were already OP for the end). I think the mid game will still be OK, even for a mage.

Hm... if evasion is too powerful, maybe we should reduce it to 72% damage taken (from 67%)? I think 75% would nerf it too much...

What was wrong with Fleet of Foot before? I very often pick it, but didn't notice anything.

I have to say that I feel we should be going the other direction for Spell Power... make them distributed with pval between 1 and 6, but with smaller effects if they're to strong (maybe 5.5% per pval?)
