• Are their any Angband addicts left?

    Hi if anyone is watching this list,

    I got back to Angband recently,running it from MXLinux in a VirtualBox, it seems to be a transitional version, the shops won't buy
    anything aside from the Magic Shop which will take and resell staves
    and buy wands. I keep littering the streets with stuff. I have 3
    artifact weapons: Lance of Eorlingas, Forsagil, and a short sword Dunwod
    all the spelling of the names are off of course and the weapon shop
    won't buy? Oh for the mathom house.. But also in this version lines of
    green stuff litter the levels and praying for sense of doors and traps
    wipes it off that portion of the screen. I wonder if the rules changed
    so radically at some point that the shops will sell and always seem to
    have essential stock like Words of Recall, some Scrolls of ID and Staves
    of ID, Oh and the character is a Dwarf Paladin around 65O feet which is
    lower than I have survived in some time.
    I say addicted because hammering away at a Keyboard in Angband
    was the waste of many hours on the Amiga and on my XP laptop. I tend to
    get dehydrated as I play until the last possible minute to pull my
    meal together.

    sooner than later
    bliss

    There are not many of us here, but in http://angband.oook.cz/forum/
    there are still plenty of angband players. Pretty much everyone just
    moved from here to there some time ago.

    New versions of angband can be found on http://rephial.org/release/

    If they'll develop any new interesting variants I might come back. Last
    time I played Angband variant was when ToME was still based on
    Angband. I didn't play vanilla since I discovered ZAngband.
