Re: List of gods that need major mechanical overhauls

I can immediately see reasons why most of the gods you listed are there, although I don't think I'm experienced enough to really have an opinion on most of them, but why is Elyvilon on the list?

Re: Redesign Proposal - Demigod (or, a new Species?)

I've had a lot of fun with your new demigod so far. I'm no expert so I can't say much about the balance, but I've always liked the randomness in Ds and Dr, and I think this is a sufficiently differentiated but still enjoyable version of that. I agree with Fingolfin and others—I like the idea of demi...

Re: Shorten Hell Branches

I like the idea of shortening hell branches. They are pretty boring. As for pan, I think it's fine. Racing for the stairs is a nice departure from the "clear the floor" approach for much of the game. But I wouldn't be explicitly opposed to announcing the demonic rune either. As for the mat...

Re: Confusion about confusion

I'm skeptical of the claim that monsters who live near water can't swim, but your argument that they could sink is convincing. I propose the following overhaul of the water system: If a monster/player is wearing armour with ER>7 and falls into deep water, they sink immediately and die (flavour: thei...

Confusion about confusion

If confused monsters can drown by stumbling into water, how come electric eels/lava snakes can't suffocate by stumbling onto land?

Re: replace Polymorph with Malmutate

Wand of acid already debuffs enemies, so that conflicts a bit with malmutate. However, acid already has a niche as the bolt-damage wand now that lightning is gone, and I like the idea of a pure debuff wand (and maybe a way to play the mutation game again if people want that...?). Perhaps change acid...

Re: Rip in pepperoni Ozocubu's Armour

Actually the amulet does work while waiting, the reasoning in the commit being that you don't want to incentivize people to move back and forth instead of resting like normal. I don't think it works with blink: that's a reading action, not a moving one. While we're on the topic, I think it's annoyin...

Re: Fedhas rework (again)

Summon forest never felt like it had much synergy with other summoning spells to me (although I still quite liked it). Making it a god does make more sense to me. Would you be able to summon forest in enclosed spaces? Because if not it seems like some dungeon layouts might make it almost impossible ...

Re: start monks with Wu Jian

I don't think monks are bland. With the bonus piety, you get to starting playing around with god powers much earlier than in other games. Perhaps an argument could be made for a Wu Jian zealot background, but I don't think that the argument would be very strong. Lugonu isn't in the temple, Xom isn't...

Re: Stupid ideas for 0.19

Items with +Inv can evoke themselves. If they're on the dungeon floor and you don't have SInv, you can only see them if you walk on their square or cast corona, etc on them. If they're in your pack, you can try to wear/wield/evoke it, but the inventory letter that they are assigned is randomized amo...

Re: rename porcupine, spiny frog

Until now, I thought that spiny frogs had spines too.... Also, I quite like the name "razorback", although the flavor text would probably have to be changed. Hogs are fast as well, so they fit in the category nicely.

Automatically pick up !mutation

Now that mutation potions are actually useful in trunk, it would be nice to have autopickup automatically set to pick them up after identification. This obviously isn't a big deal, but I don't like to have to change the autopickup settings, and other good potions are automatically picked up.

I quite like the concentration idea.
