Re: Is this a bug? Game shut down after zot trap

I've had Eldritch tentacle-related crashes as well. I wonder if it has something to do with the game trying to create two tentacles at once? I've seen it happen once in Tomb when I actually knew the spell, so it's possible a Zot trap tried to open another one, and again on a Pan lord zig floor, wher...

Re: Bring itemdest back (and corrosion, maybe)

How is corrosion different conceptually from say, malmutation, other than mutation is quite random and we usually see corrosion a bit earlier? Both have semi-permanent negative effects (moreso for mutation, at least you can take the armour off) which can be dispelled by use of a consumable. They ar...

Re: "Don't Starve": a game that sounds almost roguelike

Don't Starve is fun...a bit too "Minecraft-y" for my taste though. A lot of the emphasis is on collecting things, to build up into more complex things, and so forth.

It is possible to die though in a number of catastrophic ways, which is quite fun.

Maybe this is crazy, but I was thinking this might be cool as a Zin passive ability. Zin, hating randomness as he does, narrows the variance of dice rolls in combat to a degree based on piety. Could be flavorful, useful, and interesting.
