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'm new to the game, and after a few horrible deaths, I have my
current ranger up to level 15.

My question is concerning items.  I have a vague understanding of what
the numbers after an item name do, but I can't tell when an item is
better than another....

For example

Beaked Axe (2d6) (+2, +4)
or
Two Handed Sword (3d6)

I know that the beaked axe has +2 to hit, and +4 to damage.

Which item is better?  Is the +4 damage applied to each die?  Would
that make it 1d6+4, 1d6+4?

My other question is how do I know how fast a weapon is?  I have seen
some good crossbows, but people say they are slower...how do I tell??

Last thing...on the heavier armors they have a penalty to hit.  Is
this going to matter at level 15?

Thanks for all the help.
