Heh. I still have, sitting around, a modified Angband - which I did
before I knew about source control, so it'd be a bit of a pain to try
to rebase my changes onto a newer build. It has a whole lot of UI
improvements, a new character class, a few new races (they're easy), a
new gear slot, racial abilities, and a bunch of smaller features that
don't come to mind right now. I should clean it up and throw it onto
Github or something.
