Right now I'm fiddling with various ways of making ADOM more accessible to newbies (due to a small creative block regarding the final touches to the domain of the ice queen… *sigh*). While paging through the ADOM forum and the various RFEs / bug reports I among other things stumbled upon the topic of item inscriptions.
I have to admit that I so far had no idea what an "item inscription" might be (I just thought it might be a textual note) but found some arcane reference to Angband item inscriptions.
Personally this looks to me like a typical power user features that nobody never ever would consider to use (given the arcane syntax and all).
Is there any community consensus regarding this kind of stuff? Please post your feedback in the comments.
(And please post links to useful documentation if you find certain systems of item inscriptions useful)
