A lot of old games had cloud levels. They don't really make them any more. Too busy showing off fog effects.

Cestus. It's a gauntlet type. Less AV than a normal gauntlet with a given (primary) material. Two materials: Leather, and some metal which has more volume than a normal gauntlet. This gives it more mass, hence increasing unarmed damage appropriately.

Pots and jars. Plates. Ceramics in general. Just more clutter around the dungeon, I dunno. Maybe you can store food in them, or throw them at people. Or store food in them and THEN throw them at people.

On that note, rolling pins. Equipped on Attnamese housewives so they can back up their talk. Also other such implements, like kitchen knives and pitchforks. Low level blunt, sword and polearms respectively. More variety in beginner items.

Have you recently checked what are the housewives carrying?

Nope. I'll do that now. Thanks for mentioning it!

Some related cosmetic suggestions centered around the current time of year... spawned from discussion in chatbox

If a game is started within one week of...
...the Spring Equinox, some patches of grass have flowers.
...the Summer Solstice, a few patches of snow in Attnam are melted and replaced with grass tiles.
...the Fall Equinox, all the trees turn orange.
...the Winter Solstice, Jenny spawns with decorations (lights, tinsel, etc).

I dunno, those are just the best ideas for each even that I could come up with.

Hm, don't we have tags on spawns now? How about holiday variants that spawn on specific days?

Weight of limbs must impact encumbrance. If an arm is connected to your body, then it weighs 0, but if it is cut off and you pick it up then it has weight. I know that they are easier to carry when they are attached to you, so maybe only half weight must be added? It doesn't really matter with natural limbs, but having 2 iron arms with no weight penalty is unrealistic.
