Summary 0008148: Djinn
Description Removes Djinn.

Djinn have several problems. The greatest of them all is probably their use of several different "gimmicks," including EP, contam for hunger, hellfire resistance, and weird flying behaviour. Due to the first two they had lots and lots of special cases, and it was also incredibly hard to balance them for both the beginning and the endgame, especially for spellbook starts -- it took 6 months for there to be an online win with DjAE even though they had a good air apt. Removing hunger forced them into weird special cases with their contamination, which just set them apart from other races since crawl is simply no ready for food removal.

There doesn't seem to be much support for keeping Djinn in either among players or developers. You'll be able to finish games in progress.
