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

Remove Norris from spawnlist in Arena Sprint

Currently Thunderdome is unplayable in trunk, because at some point the game eventually tries to spawn Norris, a unique that was removed from the game not too long ago. This results in an endless loop of lua errors, and the player is forced to ctrl+q the game.

Personally I liked Norris better than Rupert, would rather have had Rupert removed

Extended proposal: Also start actually maintaining the sprints instead of going "oh wait they're broken?" every six months.
take it easy
