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 Porcupines

I really don't like porcupines. They're rarely or never a real threat, but they discourage tabbing for no good reason. They are basically speed bumps. Lair would be better without them.

Re: Remove Porcupines

Give them melee barbs, so they become traffic lights instead of speed bumps.

How do they interact with range polearms? Do they sting you anyway?

they sting you if you are in melee range, so you only have one shot.

Re: Remove Porcupines

I've never noticed anything special about porcupines. What do they actually do?

Try hitting one in melee with a low AC char (Fe, Op).
