Re: Predict the future of Crawl development

• Stock ammo will be infinite, brand ammo finite, and all ammo will mulch
• Chunks removed. Use 'e' to eat corpses on the ground.
• God gifts will drop pre-identified
• Turn queue will be displayed

Re: DCSS Review

UI Negatives: I agree with you assessment. Enemy strengths and weaknesses would be better represented with symbols and mouse-over explanations of those symbols or at least short hand like player status effects: -rP, Mindless, Fast, Small. Lack of clarity is definitely a major obstacle for getting ne...

Re: item-like butchering menu

Why is 'c' used and not consolidated into 'e'? Is there a time when you are standing on a corpse and you'd choose to eat food rather than chunk it?

At the very least 'e' should chunk a corpse and eat a chunk if the player presses it while standing on a corpse.

Dark Souls RL

Could Dark Souls 1 be co-opted into fun traditional roguelike? Assume that bonfires would be removed. There are more branches in Dark Souls than crawl and each branch tends to have a specific challenge and rule set. Players tend to be able to choose from several branches at any given time - but beca...

Re: New Monster Idea: Poltergeist

I think this monster idea should be revisited. Spawning Area: Orcish Mines and Elf. Invisible, Low HP, No Physical Attack Only Two spells: a. Telekinesis (throw item from the floor at target - range = LoS) and b. Blink. By itself it should be an annoyance rather than a threat, but in the hall of bla...

Re: Display skill to minimize delay

I'm not sure there is an elegant way to do that for this particular message, though. True. If players had a way to see how many skill points they need to reach specific skill level for given skill... Point buy would work. Instead of allocating 40% of xp in this skill and 60% in that, have a running...

Re: Strength vs. Slaying

1 strength = d (1/39*((10+[1-10])/20) percent of the base damage of the attack before fighting or weapon skill. Or an average of between .7% and 1.28% per point of strength (depending on weapon type) Stupid question: How is this formula supposed to be read? Does d stand for damage roll or die faces...

Re: Skill XP Dropoff

This mechanic increases the opportunity cost of skill choice and prevents advancement of low level skills from becoming trivial later in the game.

This might change my behavior in that I would be more careful about what to train for the first few levels.

Re: Skill XP Dropoff

So if I understand correctly: while enemy skill xp is static, the amount skill points required per level is a positive function increasing with player level?

Skill XP Dropoff

I've noticed on a SpEn that after a while low level enemies stop providing skill XP. Killing that hobgoblin on D:6 with Throwing at 0.0 and 100% will result in 0 skill xp earned. Is this determined by the level differential between you and the enemy? Is it better to dive to seek harder enemies at th...

I'm also a beginner to the game and have just started to find the Lair survivable. MiBe is definitely an excellent combo for survivability against Yaks. They provide chunks so you can easily chain beserks against them at basically no cost. Keep track of important escape items: haste, blink, and tele...

Re: Give ?recharging a chance to destroy wands

If there is a problem with too many charges there are many better solutions than item destruction:

• Eliminate the wand
• Lower max charges on the wand
• Less effective recharge for the wand

Re: new combat move: door attack

I could see this working for a 7DRL. I'd recommending it being streamlined to simply add status effects to defenders being attacked while standing in a door frame rather than requiring the player to press 'c' next to one.

I was playing Dark Souls II with some friends and recommended DCSS. They were horrified by the idea of losing their character on death and it proved to be a major hurdle in the discussion.

Best Way to Introduce Crawl?

What's the best way to introduce or describe DCSS to an outsider that has never heard of roguelikes but is familiar with modern RPGs?

For instance, how would you spark the interest of a hardened "Dark Souls" veteran?
