Re: Speed

Being faster than a monster is a very powerful ability. So if you would make e.g. elves faster, you should balance them by making them weaker in some other sense.

Crawl used to have item weights and burden levels in the past. They were removed in DCSS 0.15, and I don't think they're coming back.

[Bloat] YAVP: OCNK of Dithmenos (3 runes)

For some reason, Hedgehog in Bloatcrawl is abbreviated as OC. Anyway, Hedgehogs have spines, can't wear body armour, cloaks or headgear, and move fast (0.6 auts). They also can't be slowed (or hasted). Night Knights are zealots of Dithmenos. Fast movement makes Hedgehogs obviously quite powerful. On...

Did you wear that -Tele amulet as default? I'm always so scared of -Tele that I probably never have it on a non-Formicid. Ranged combat in vanilla has become a no-brainer, imo.
