Re: HP-powered wands

How about instead of using up hp/mp make wands use up additional charges per level of mutation (as if still unidentified)?

Re: Changes to make Crawl harder

Reduce Lair to five levels and all other branches to three without readjusting monster XPs, item drops etc.

Damn game takes too long anyway.

Re: Auto-purge morgue of chars files not in highscore list

I expected to see the "being able to look at the stats of ghosts" argument popping up, but honestly I looked up the morgue of an encountered ghost exactly one time in over 3 years of crawling so I dismissed it as trivial when I made the suggestion and I apologize. If this is a thing I'd su...

Auto-purge morgue of chars files not in highscore list

After some years of crawling my morgue folder contains several thousand files which I find more and more time consuming to copy over to a new version of crawl just to be able to look at characters in the highscore list for comparing them for different stats, equipment, spells or plain nostalgic reas...

Re: Include a "drop and never pick up again" command

I beg to differ, for one the existing command shift+d (drop all items of a stack) serves no purpose anymore, and second: you have to use the autopickup menu in every single new game to define the items you don't want to autopickup anymore AND you have to acces this menue quite a few times until all ...

Maybe I'm overlooking some details but now that item destruction and item weight are no longer an issue, wouldn't it be reasonable to just replace the shift+d command with the one i proposed?

Include a "drop and never pick up again" command

In every game there comes a point where I don't want to auto-pick up certain items anymore, for example wands of flame/frost because they don't do enough damage or wands of enslavement/confusion which become near useless because of rising monster MR. Another case would be scrolls of enchant weapon i...

@Devteam: and while you're at it: shorten the whole damn game by about 50% level-wise, re-calibrate exp & floor drops. Almost all of the "tediousness" discussed in other threads originates from the game just taking too long, grinding level after level after level.
