Any reason why there's no diagonal movement?

For every step forward, there must also be a step backward. This isn't a simple, "Oh, now that I have this +3 shortsword, I can drop this +0 short sword!" change here. There's a reason vinyl is making a comeback: analog recording has certain capabilities that digital recording doesn't. The hunger clock works badly in Angband because it's just a hard limit on how long you can stay underground, which is already covered by torches and consumables.

Regarding OP, I like the idea. I'd need to try it to see how it would play out, but it really seems like a clever and interesting mechanic. Just make sure the low-quality potions are useful as something other than just vendor trash.
