This would be entirely possible, except for the fact that I haven't attempted any such fix :)

Well regardless, something caused randarts to not display their power anymore; if it's unrelated as I said standarts don't display their unique description text anymore either.

Rings of Combat: As far as I've seen any ring of combat that approaches being something good has aggravation on it. Not that aggravation shouldn't generate on them at all, but I feel that it's practically guaranteed starting at far too low a object power level.

Stealth and Aggravation: I know that Dark-Elves can make good use of such objects, but I just had a ring (it was combat) generate with both a bonus to stealth and aggravation. This seem weird?

You set off the ancient mechanism! A section of the ceiling falls in behind you!

It would appear Chicken Little was right.

I agree with this & Holy Rage has also made comments that something is out here. Angband 2.9.3 had a much slower power curve, even without O being a harder variant. Modern V is very fast to power up.

I don't think you need to power down all the way to old fashion angband (which can be painful at times), but I don't think the power curve is right at the moment, if you want players to actually spend time in the wilderness, instead of it just being there.

My latest @ seems to have inherited the (largely worthless) home inventory of a previous @ of the same build who died young. Might be something quickstart-related.

The web vaults in Nan Dungortheb seem to have a fair few scorpions in them.

Are these actually correct? A minimum of -3 on -1+d2. I've got gloves that look like these except without a move speed bonus or a description. Just a set of leather gloves.

I appear to have a shimmering vortex that's projecting its light through the wall, to the east of my @.

Dragon's Breath Wands
Something in the latest bunch of commits appears to have undone the device skill boost (or at least the game displaying such) for said wands. Only Dragon's Breath though--Dragon's Flame/Frost appear to still have device skill boostage in their [I]nspection info.

Can ents ever learn the feather falling rune? While testing the character sheet, I used wizard mode to equip and ent with boots of slow descent and to set up a pit trap. Upon falling into the pit, the ent didn't learn the rune, which may be the appropriate thing to happen.

A dark elf with boots of kicking did learn the aggravation rune (despite the SHADOW ability). Though that one's going through the "learn after wearing something for a little bit" mechanism rather than the one feather falling uses.
