Find it [[http://www.adom.de here]]. A sequel called ''ADOM II: Legends of Ancardia'' has been released, and can be found [[http://www.ancientdomainsofmystery.com/ Here]], but it's still a work in progress. In addition, a crowd-funded campaign to give more updates to ADOM I was [[http://www.indiegogo.com/resurrect-adom-development very successful]] so it will be receiving updates in the near future, and eventually a release on Steam.

* ArtifactOfDoom: [[spoiler:The Chaos Orbs contain powerful magic, but the player is corrupted upon using. There are many other artifacts that qualify; some literally "doom" the player, some corrupt the player merely by carrying them around, some do both and curse themselves on equipping to make it as hard as possible to get rid of them.]]

* AwesomeButImpractical: Quite a few class powers sound powerful but are really nerfed by other costs. For instance, the monk's level 6 power is a [[HurricaneKick circular kick]], but kicking is among one of the weaker attacks in the game and the power costs 2500 energy points to use. In other words, anything you don't manage to kill with the attack gets at least 2-3 free hits on you.

** CursedWithAwesome: On the other hand, a few of the corruptions have minor drawbacks, such as [[RedRightHand becoming horrendously ugly]] - which, of course, [[NightmareFetishist is subjective]].
** Several non-corruption character traits are also double-edged - [[PowerIncontinence randomly teleporting]] is overrated, and even invisibility has its (minor) downsides.

*** In the same manner, doing alchemy wrong will kill you (and doing it right will still probably kill you), even with completely mundane ingredients, such as mixing as a potion of orange juice with a potion of water (or ''two potions of water''), resulting in a [[MadeOfExplodium vast explosion]].

Added DiffLines:

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: To a certain degree of good. As of version 1.2.0, having an appearance score above 10 increases the amount of corruption required to gain another corruption. Because most of the corruptions penalize appearance, this means that corruptions cause a cumulative acceleration of how quickly the character gets corruptions.

* HealingFactor: [[PlayerCharacter [=PC=]s]] born in the month of Candle already inherently heal faster than Healing at 100 would let you. Trolls heal the fastest of all races. Being a healer has self-explanatory benefits. What happens when you roll up a Candle-born Trollish Healer? Near {{Wolverine}}-class HealingFactor! Especially since healers double, then triple their HP recovery at [[MagikarpPower level 6 and 12]].

* ProbabilityPileup: ProbabilityPileup:
**
One of the game mechanics is that items you've identified become slightly easier to find more of. ''Slightly''. This is partly to make it so that spellcasters can actually use their spells without worrying about permanently running out of their good spells before finding a new book.
