More a bizarre life sim and plain old sandbox RPG than a straight up roguelike, Elona was designed to allow players to play with no specific goals in mind, doing whatever they want in the open sandbox world of North Tyris. The world of Elona is plagued by an airborne blight known as Etherwind. You are an adventurer, fresh off the boat, ready to explore and make your mark on the land. Start a farm, run a museum, be a shopkeeper, go adventuring, or raise pets to duel in the monster arena. If you really feel like it, you can do all of those and more.

Twisted, funny, and strangely compelling. Like VideoGame/DwarfFortress' Adventure Mode [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs on crack]].

A spin-off game, simply named Elona Shooter, was released in 2009. It actually has very little to do with Elona, except for sprites and a few references. You play a wanderer who visits a town under siege by hordes of monsters. After being put in charge of the defense of the town, you are then left to do what you will.

On November 2010, Noa stated that he would not work on Elona any farther, [[TakeUpMySword but released the source code so that other people could, hopefully, continue development]]. A while after this, a regular began working on a Java port of the game. As of November 2012, a Pre-Alpha of this port has been released for testing.

Like Dwarf Fortress, Elona is the successor of an obscure, incomplete game known as ''Etherwind'', a sort of realtime JRPG, which it shares some of the sprites and soundtrack with.

Especially when you've contracted a disease that will ''kill you again in less then an in-game week'' if you can't cure it.

** Speaking of fountains, the game lets you mix whatever liquids you want into them. This includes medicine, buff potions, booze, dye, and even vomit.

** A lot of [=NPCs=] will dislike your performances, and gladly express their discontentment by way of rocks, until you trained it enough. And since they're generally higher leveled than you at first, it'll usually result in you being gibbed.

For small creatures, this is a boon, as they will respawn in the town they are summoned in until you catch them or otherwise force them to stop appearing (though it's slightly buggy, sometimes they don't respawn for ages, or not at all, since they aren't originally a part of the town.) For large creatures, it sure is nice having a sky golem spawn on your side after you inadvertently summon a master lich. They will engage any hostile monsters just as a normal neutral character such as a rogue archer or mercenary would do.

Even has its own unique graphic! Turning another npc insane gives it the full rush of non-poisonous status effects in the game, and the shubby's insanity strike lasts longer than the insanity from cannibalism.

* SchizoTech: Hot tubs, machine guns, electric lamps, nuclear bombs, laser guns, genetic engineering, AI-controlled motorcycles, and more all exist within Elona's vaguely medieval setting, which features stone castles, knights in plate armor, wizards in robes, sail-powered wood ships, horses being the primary form of transport, swords and arrows of every type, and medieval/Victorian-style clothing. Cyber Dome is a settlement whose entire existence ''is'' SchizoTech, supposedly from worshiping the Machine God.
** Elona+ later reveals that the setting is closer to an UrbanFantasy, with high-technology being the norm in regions outside of North Tyris; Yerles have jet aircraft, Eulderna have blimps ''in addition to wizards in robes'', [[MadScientist Zanan has its own brand of scientists]], and Xeren was an [[AdvancedAncientHumans advanced civilization before it was destroyed]]. Apparently, [[DecadeDissonance North Tyris is the equivalent of a third-world country]].

* TraumaInn - Subverted. Although you do need to sleep on a bed to clear the "Sleepy" or "Needs Sleep" status effects, sleeping can also give you crafting materials, teach you new spells, mutate you, curse you with an annoying invisible bandit...
** Played somewhat straighter with Etherwind shelters, which are available at all inns, as long as the Etherwind's blowing.

** The floor that Issizzle the Dark Abomination inhabits in the Crypt of the Damned [[SuspiciousVideoGameGenerosity has many layers of rooms with locked doors and beds all on one side of the area]]. An inexperienced player might think this area is a perfect place to hide from the boss and recover HP. Until they find out the hard way that unlike most enemies encountered up to this point, Issizzle [[ArtificialBrilliance knows exactly where you are]] [[OhCrap and is more than willing to bust down walls to get to you.]]
* WelcomeToCorneria: Averted. Every random NPC picks a line from one of several pools of possible text each time you talk to them. While the combined pool is rather large, it never changes throughout the course of the game. Major NPC's and your God/Goddess-given companions play this trope straight, though.
** Also note you can edit them and add to them. So have a ball, and share your [[HilarityEnsues rapier witticisms]] with all your friends! The Elona community backs and supports [[http://drop.io drop.io]], for those who need a place to put their creations. The Japanese tend to use Japan's DA, Pixiv, however.
* WhatTheHellPlayer - There's a very slim chance that upon drinking from a fountain, you can get a wish. The game allows you to type something that you want to wish for. Try typing "Death", and you'll get your wish.
** In your character window, you have a stat called "sanity". It represents how crazy you've gone, and you can increase it by eating human flesh. (Unless you have a mutation that says [[{{Squick}} you are okay with eating human flesh]]).

After completing the North Tyris main quest, she becomes Gwen the '''pitiless''', giving her jacked-up stats and superb resistance to all elements except Magic, and each time you kill her, she gains a level when she respawns. You can fight her as a BonusBoss or, with the Astral Light Pen, recruit her to your side.

* AttackItsWeakPoint / BoomHeadshot / CriticalHit: A key mechanic in the game. Hitting an enemy's weak point deals double damage. Scoring 7 criticals will make your character go into a frenzy (called "Rampage" in this game), increasing damage, firing rate, and reload speed for a short time. Additionally, Sense gives the user a chance to inflict a critical hit even if the user doesn't strike the target's weak point.

* AwesomeButImpractical: The divine weapons, which are wielded by the Gods themselves and have to be taken from their cold, dead hands (and if you kill their normal form, [[TurnsRed they will rise back up for Round Two]]), have huge attributes and give awesome bonuses...and weigh about 100 times more than a regular weapon. That said, it's not a stretch to guess someone strong enough to take on a ''god'' of all things wouldn't have a problem lugging so much weight around.

* JokeItem: Elona+ adds a fourth gift from Gods: while the other three are simply received upon reaching a certain favor score and include useful pets, permanent perks and decent artifact weapons, the fourth gifts (which you have to summon the god itself to obtain) are equipment pieces which give a huge bonus to PV but give a large enough penalty to bring several attributes and skills to zero.
