Re: Give Trolls +2 Maces & Flails Aptitude

To me this is a wasted opportunity. If both big races have the same relationship towards their unique size trait then you are not squeezing as much gameplay potential out of that trait as you possibly could. I think your heart is in the right place here - I agree with the sentiment, for sure - but ...

Re: Making D:1 more interesting for newer players

I don't think that adding more rng deaths to D:1 makes it more interesting. With all due respect, the idea of putting adders on D:1 is very, very bad. As the current world record length streak holder in DCSS, I can assure you that many - perhaps **most** - combos will just flat out die to adders on ...

Re: New Background Idea: Antiquity Knight

I'm a big fan of any and all new Zealot classes. This seems like a fun idea - not so sure about the random scroll, though, since you're sort of encroaching on Wanderer design space at that point.

Re: Leo Littlebook's thread

Nobody has said anything positive about the idea of exclusively studying DCSS' early game in order to figure out true combos. Instead there's been only demands for proof of wins. Which leads me to believe that nobody has done what I did: Play all species simultaneously, switching to the lowest XL o...

He is trolling you, which is honestly kind of a bad look for a dev of the game even if it isn't meant maliciously. Upsetting to see, tbh.

A forum thread isn't a blog. If you want to comment on videos, you can comment on the videos. Or start your own blog. Why try to send him away from the main forum for the game, though?

Hi. I posted a quick-and-dirty playtest of this with a VpEE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPRRJAQI8Jo A few thoughts: 1) I can go from bloodless to alive while in bat form. I then get to move (or do something else) while in bat form, and only then do I get kicked out of bat form. This feels weird...

Feature request: show enemy spell damage under XV

If you XV a monster, you currently see their base melee/ranged damage. You also see what weapon they're using, and if you add their base damage to the base weapon damage you can easily get an idea of how much damage they can do to you. You can do this without the help of an infobot or looking anythi...

Hey guys. Notorious MRG here. I built Twitch Plays DCSS. Now you can remotely drone strike D:1 kobolds from the safety of your own living room! It's still barebones, but it is definitely possible to win with the current build. I'm currently running it on my personal twitch channel - I will either ru...

Re: crawl.jorgrun.rocks server (CJR) being taken offline

Making a thinly-veiled stunt out of it is just giving people more reasons to hate you. I'm sure plenty of other people could maintain and pay for it (I'm one of them), so if you want it, maybe don't try to pre-emptively make yourself a martyr. The question is: will that be allowed to happen? If not...

Re: crawl.jorgrun.rocks server (CJR) being taken offline

If I cared enough to try something like this, I would have approached the server owners first. You have to think five Stratego moves ahead. Actually, I already did. ZiBuDo agreed. But I don't want to take ownership of the server and then be surprised when they unlist it out of hatred for me, or som...

Re: crawl.jorgrun.rocks server (CJR) being taken offline

Letting everyone know that Zibudo is taking CJR offline since he doesn't have the time nor desire to host the server any more. The server will go down for sure by 11/30/18, and may be unavailable for accessing in-progress games before then. Hence It'd be a good idea to quickly wrap up any in-progre...

Re: Dealing with Mutations in the post end game

I like to play for 15 rune wins, and find it fun to try and build characters that feel overpowered in the end game. However, with resist mutation gone, it seems like there are very few ways to tackle the end game without becoming horribly mutated. Currently I am generally either going Zin, or I use...

I cleared D:1 which was pretty tame. I then went down the stairs to D:2 and immediately took 120 damage from that ring-of-humans V:5-esque vault. 10/10 would play again. :lol: LOL, yeah - the D:1 -- D:2 transition seems to be the hardest point in the game as it currently is.
