Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

Re: sif's new ability - magic save

Whats with the laughing emoji? It sort of makes it seem like this thread belongs in yiufs corner.

Aside from having been suggested and rejected many times before, this level of content is not up to GDD's standards. Before you click submit, review your post and make sure you list: The purpose of your proposal, what your proposal IS, and how exactly it will fix or improve some aspect of the game. Fixes to the game can be very short and sweet, but actual new effects or monsters being added into the game warrants some serious breaking down analysis a lot of the time. Sometimes it can be simple if you are only trying to create discussion, but if you are genuinely suggesting an addition to the game then you really can't get away with half assed thread OP's like this.

You should really read the guidelines before you make any further posts as well. Don't be too discouraged, most people end up making some mistakes on their first try in GDD.
To all new players: Ignore all strategy guides posted on the wiki, ask questions in the Advice forum, players with lots of posts normally have the best advice.

Re: sif's new ability - magic save

Well... it would be a nice buff for sif. I suppose the OP should try to make the case that sif needs such a boost (it'd be a big one!). But having something to spend sif piety on would be cool.

Re: sif's new ability - magic save

Wait... are KSK and sdynet bots? Am I having a stroke? Do their last two posts look like something cerekov would say to anyone else?

I know for a fact that sdynet is Korean based on his post history, and the accent that KSK types in is very very similar, so I'd wager to say he's Korean too. If you reread their comments a few times they actually make sense; They're proposing that Sif Muna have a "sustain intelligence" passive as well as a passive resistance to mana draining (eye of gazing, ghost moth, antimagic brand, etc)

See in sdynet's history: "hi. Sentence using Google Translator. I hope to understand."

I for one think the comments are adorable (in a non-demeaning sense) and appreciate that they took the time to translate them to take part in tavern conversations.

Re: sif's new ability - magic save

OK, fair enough, just those last two posts looked like word salad to me, and I seriously thought maybe a new better cerekov was out making fools of us tavern folk.

No offense intended to our Korean friends, nor to any other non english speakers.
