As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on Angband.oook.cz website.

I thought about making it give an XP penalty in the mid game - like
playing one of the better races, you go up levels slower. Probably
also reduce your score compared to non-Easy-Start characters.
