Not that Diablo II doesn't have its faults.  I've repeatedly had things
like, say specific socket weapons that I spent entire *levels* looking
for just vanish out of my inventory before I could accumulate the items
I wanted to embed into them.  And gems and runes just take up too damned
much inventory space, and the mounted jewels are just stupid and mostly

You know a Diablo II item I'd like to see?  A pouch that takes up one
space of inventory and can hold up to, say, 24 gems or runes, or a
mixture of both, but NOTHING ELSE.  It's ridiculous that four gems small
enough to socket into the hilt of a sword take as much inventory space
as a full helm or a buckler.
