Milestone: 3.2.0 Keywords: items


for starters, object kind name (from obj-name.c), default flags (elements resisted/ignored, easy_know), attr/char (can then remove a lot of lines for default values from object.txt)

Just for clarity, "object kind" is used in the game to mean the index in object.txt - so we already have an external file for object kinds.

This ticket is about introducing an external file of object classes, such as potion, scroll, rod, staff, wand etc., to replace tvals.

OK, point taken, but it's not replacing tvals, just moving data about them into an external file. I'd like to stick with tval as the name rather than using a new term.
