okay...i enter phobos 14 without any medkits whatsoever and guess what.
6 cacodemons and 4 barrels right next to the entrance. awesome! use the
time while they notice me to back up and shoot the barrels. Got some of
them but than another 2 showed up and finally being cornered and sadly
outnumbered, went down. A truly fun rouglike nevertheless.
here is the dump of my poooor poor blown up marine:
(the reason why I am not wearing armor is not because I am a retard, but
it was shot off me in that fatal last round when i was hit 4 times by
the demons)

Bad luck. I suppose you had no phase devices?

Nope. I'd have used it:)  I have found only one during the whole journey
and I was forced to use it earlier on.

I really like YABD -- seems an appropariate tag for DoomRL deaths ;-).

The traits people pick are almost always the same -- will need to do some
balancing.

Indeed. Although the above three I found equally useful. It is just that
they were significantly more useful than the rest. Like reload, or the
pistol skill are too weapon specific (reload is only useful for
shotties) and extra movement is worth little, since most of the
dangerous foes are shooting anyhow.

The who? Almost? hmm?
If you are referring to the special levels it was suspicious i missed
something during my 2 trips to the Halls of Carnage, but couldnt figure
how to get those doors open.

Haha, yeah. It was my first marine. I was like "Yay, a sergeant standing
next to a barrel, lets show the bastard who is the smart man on board!"
(f, target barrel, shoot) "Oh, wait, there is 4 more barrels in the
room, wait, cancel, cancel...oh...nevermind" -splash-
btw, would be nice if when targetting you could select barrels via
pressing tab. though it would be a bit accident-prone...

How about introducing the 'packrat' (more ammo/slot or more inventory
slots) and 'pharma friendly' (more health/medpack, longer berserk time)
traits from System Shock 2?

I don't want to break the limitation of 20 items. I may introduce something
like a backpack though -- more ammo in one slot. The second one is quite
possible though.
