Let's Learn to Crawl: Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup
This is looking interesting, and the prose style is very enjoyable. Keep it up, wouldja?
Keeping up with this as well. Also playing along. Pretty fun, though I died about as quickly (to a named character nonetheless. Terence he was.)
You know what sucks? When you create a character, then there's no exit out of the first room! You could just restart, but it always messes up the death board. ;_;
I've found magic is real hit-or-miss; you can be on top of the world and slaughter everything, only to fall to a stray lucky shot. Still, can't wait till you get into summoning; that's always been my favorite form of magic and this game seems to handle it pretty well.
I've got a later update about Xom (though it's relatively skimpy on details about him). I might do an entire update just teaching the wide variety of ways Xom makes you hate him. As for magic? I've got some necromancy and summoning on the queue of updates and thinking about doing some transmutations next.
I can't say I've ever been a major fan of Roguelikes (even Pokemon Mystery Dungeon can make me tense up at points), but I definitely like the various ways one can play through this title. The sheer number of mechanics shown in this entry alone, for a single race out of the many, is quite astounding. Every update gives me another clue as to how intricate this game truly is, and I've been impressed every single time.
Interesting note. I don't know if this is because I'm using 0.8 or what, but you can cast Animate Skeleton on a freshly dead body, and it will make both a skeleton and a meat chunk. Handy if you can't cut up the corpse yourself.
And with a display of amazing luck skill, it appears that our lovable necromancer has avoided lowering herself to the level of her own minions. What deaths and undeaths await our protagoinst next time? Tune in next time to find out! Same Crawl-time, same Crawl-channel!
Last time I met Yiuf, he didn't have ONE hammer, he got 72 of them, 8 of them glowing, 3 runed, and 5 branded. And one Mace Artifact (+6 +7 Torment).
I love this crazy guy ^^
Well, that's a bit of a shame; Demi-Fiend's existance lasted ridiculously long in comparison to all that came before, and I was starting to hope that he'd go all the way. Nevertheless, you were able to show off a lot of neat and interesting things with him, and did a wonderful job overall. Oh, and have a pleasant hiatus!
good times =>
Keep up the blog, hope that isn't the end, good stuff =>
