Re: Stupid ideas -- Started for 0.19, and Still Running!

I've been a long time away, and this topic reminds me of : https://crawl.develz.org/tavern/viewtopic.php?p=34041#p34041 But since THIS thread is about STUPID ideas, let me put my grain of salt. Like any other modern game, DCSS must have a Twitch integration. And not just old boring "stream on t...

Re: I'll never win Chei

I find chei very easy in late (not very late) game. Just move away or hold position in the early levels or use a magic background that has some sort of area control. The trick is to avoid TAB and even auto-explore.

You'd have to remove the few Vaults with "inscriptions on the door" and also all descriptions on objects like some God altar. I think a no reading 3rune is viable (e.g. big hand to hand Troll) if you don't get unlucky with cursed items and are very diligent about engagements (can't telepor...

It would give you some utility in boosting your path, helping in getting a new one, and actually gives you decision while making them valuable both early and late.
