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 website.

(Posted to r.g.r.a, angband-dev and the forum.  If you have suggestions,
please reply in only one place.)

As noted in a previous mail, I'm reordering the object list, and
alongside this adding a few new items and removing a few others.  For
example, I am changing the mushroom effects so they are mixed-blessing
and a little odd (as it has been pointed out, the purpose of mushrooms
is pretty much entirely flavour, so they might as well be interesting.)

Anyway, I would like to remove entirely-bad stuff from the object list
and instead have some mixed-blessing items that might plausibly be used.
This especially applies when it comes to rings and amulets.

Mixed-blessing items don't have to be made up of already-existing item
abilities, but could have new ones.  I don't need especially many, just
a few.  More ideas for consumables (potions/scrolls/staffs/mushrooms)
would also be nice, but not essential.

(FWIW, I've already added[1] a rare scroll of Deep Descent, which came
up some time ago and I always liked the idea of.  I have no
mixed-blessing potions other than the lose-one-gain-one potions.)

[1]: In my local copy.  I'm not committing to the public repository
until I'm fairly sure I've finished savefile-breaking changes.
