So, I have to admit that I originally set this to "Beginner Mode," with the "Cheat Death" option marked (a previous attempt with a Dwarf Priest dead by KO from Forge Giants was a bit too painful). However, since I didn't die this time around, I unmarked it at the end, and voila, it's still considered a legit win.

Comments and thoughts on Sangband:

I really like the crafting system, but the distribution of components is WAY too heavily favored towards end-gear. I had been steadily raising Armor Forging, Weapon Forging, and Magical Infusion since power level 5, and the first chunk of metal I got was Iron (at some appropriate Dlevel, I think late 20-ish?).

I was very much strapped for Resistances before then, and it was really annoying that I couldn't make anything that's simply RElec or RCold for lack of metal.

Towards the end of the game, the opposite problem emerged. I was to the point of not bothering to pick up any metal that wasn't Adamant, and even Adamant was common enough off Dragons that I could build up perfect weapons.

Immunities are too easy to craft IMO. Essences of the basic 4 elements are way overabundant in the end-game, and the only reason a Artificer wouldn't have full immunities is sheer laziness.

Sauron and Morgoth are significantly easier than I expected. No big Mana Storms, no big healing of self, not even very often or powerful summons (I got some Vrocks and Nalfanshees the first summon, and some vampires the second). The most damage Morgoth ever hit me for in a single round was about 200.

In constrast, Unmakers are much more tough, with their explosive breeding and breaths.. (I routinely abandon levels where I see more than one.)

Finally, I feel that OAngband's dice + deadliness system just doesn't work out very well. Anyone relying primarily on Melee wants a weapon with as big dice as possible, so artifact weapons are often not competitive with even, say, an Executioner Sword of Slay Evil.

I've never really had trouble finding copper and bronze.

The only solution I can suggest for the bounty of materials is to increase the rarity of materials as you find more and more of them, which seems like a pretty ugly hack to me.

You're running a pretty high-power character here given your long list of skills. It's not too surprising that you found Morgoth and Sauron easy.

Unmakers are abandon-worthy, IMO. Especially since they often breed well out of LOS and are unmanageable by the time you see them.

On 5.9.2008 20:52 wrote:
True, my list of skills is fairly long. But a few of the things I maxed out towards the end because I was already power 100, and still had tons of XP left.

For example, I wanted to see what all I could make with high level alchemy, so I raised it from 0 to 100. I was also doing just fine with about 70 in Bows and Magical Power and Wizardry and Karate and Spellcasting, but again, with so much XP, I felt somehow obligated to put them somewhere. (I even considered boosting Burglary towards then end, but then decided that Bluesteel Blade probably weren't "Light Blades.")

I didn't particular make this a "crawl" experience, though I certainly didn't power-dive either. I usually just head to the next level when I detect stairs down, taking detours to clear pits and pick up unIDed items. So it seems like the end-game also provides too much XP, which then of course tempts one to try the various untapped skills.. (so yeah, the score system penalizes curiosity :-P)

I think a great solution to the early metal chunk problem is to have metal chunk flavored Chests, dropped of monsters and uniques and player Ghosts. Of course, this would be useless to non-crafters, but then again, wand and staff flavored chests are useless to non magic-devicers.

Alternatively, one could make them infrequently sold in the General store or such.

I take it from the lack of response that you generally approve of the Oangband style +Deadliness?

I've played a lot of martial artists so my experience with weapons is lesser, and I certainly agree that often a good ego-item (slay evil or brand) is often better than artifacts, but that's not necessarily a bad things. Certainly making more weapons and weapon styles viable is a good thing.

I'm not sold on deadliness, but I don't really like the vanilla combat either. Perhaps a finely-tuned combination of deadliness and damage is warranted.
