Summary 0011516: More variation in ghosts for ghosts vaults, when playing offline
Description I just played my first full game since the ghost vault change and killed 5 ghost clones of myself over the course of the game, and saw no other ghosts. It felt pretty silly.

Since I play offline and win more often than I lose, I suspect this will be a recurring situation.

Randomly generating appropriate ghosts to fill instead of always cloning the player would be preferable IMHO. Having a big player ghost backup list, where ghosts don't get removed if killed, would be another solution. Perhaps there are others.

for stable releases from 22.1 onward, would it be possible to add ghost files from servers to the offline installation files?

I got the idea from reading:
  http://s-z.org/crawl-dev/%23%23crawl-dev-20180801.lg [^]
see discussion around 15:30

If this is an option, different servers could be rotated for each offline stable release.

I was able to DL that ghost file and extracted the D-3 to D-15 files to my \bones\ folder and it seems to have worked since I've never played a TrGl ^Nem.
see attached screen capture.

Please add ghost files from servers for v0.22.1

The ongoing experience (that I mentioned above) has made it SOooooo pleasurable to encounter ghost vaults when playing offline.
It's like encountering a Unique for the first time....that you'll likely never encounter again!

If I can assist in any way, PM me on the Tavern.
I could work on this during the tournament since I just play offline.
