#1018 closed bug (fixed (in master))

Cursed ammo doesn't make sense

Reported by: MarbleDice Owned by: d_m
Milestone: 3.5.0 Keywords: items curses

Description (last modified by takkaria)

Previously, the (sticky) curse flag on ammo served no function, since you couldn't equip it.

Currently, you cannot remove cursed ammo from your quiver. However, you can still fire it, so it is trivial to get rid of it.

Curses on ammo should either be removed completely, or you should not be able to fire, drop, throw, or unequip cursed ammo in the quiver.

I prefer removing curses on ammo. This is consistent with past behavior, and probably makes sense considering curses are scheduled to be re-worked anyway.

In Nethack, cursed ammo has a probability to "slip" and go another random direction instead of the wanted one. This could be interesting to implement in 'band too.
Also, cursed ammo with positive +hit/+dam could be an interesting tradeoff.

Cursed ammo should return to your quiver when fired (that way it's non-trivial to remove by firing). It should also heal monsters it hits, should only break infrequently when it hits a monster (1/10 the normal rate) and then return to your quiver. In returning to your quiver it should deal damage to the player. Remove curse should affect only 10% of cursed ammo.

Now that we have a quiver, firing/throwing from your pack should incur an extra turn cost. Throwing/firing a cursed Item from your pack should also return it to your quiver (for throwing/firing items if that gets implemented) as equiped, forcing other things out of your quiver if all slots are full. For ammo, where there is multiple items, firing it from your pack should have the effect of equiping it, when the ammo is cursed.
