We are proud to announce the release of Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup 0.15: “Storm Over Zot”! 0.15 features a new deity and many, many tweaks to and streamlining of the general flow of gameplay.
The release tournament will begin at 20:00 UTC on Friday 29 August, with all online 0.15 games counting towards your score. See the tournament website for more details, including how to set up or join a clan.
0.15′s highlights include:
- Characters: Characters are now unencumbered by carrying-weight limits.
- Combat: The system of ranged combat has been fundamentally redesigned: it now behaves more like melee combat in terms of accuracy and damage, and is generally more consistent.
- Gods: Qazlal Stormbringer makes a thunderous debut, bringing elemental destruction to those unfortunate enough to cross paths with worshippers. Nemelex Xobeh’s decks have been shuffled considerably and are granted on exploration rather than through sacrifice of items.
- Items: Items are no longer subject to destruction through fire or cold, and equipment corrosion is more severe but temporary.
