[proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

X-crawl is DCSS fork developed on the Xtahua server discord in the 'forktalk' and 'fork-vote-channel' channels: https://discord.gg/Z3VGjCZ

This is the repository on GitHub : https://github.com/Vajrapani/X-Crawl

X-crawl is playable on CPO (https://crawl.project357.org) and and on our standalone server : https://x-crawl.de/
(Kindly hosted by chequers and krfreak)

It is primarily developed through a democratic system, where changes are proposed and voted on in the discord. It is currently being developed by me and NormalPerson7, along with many other contributors who post pull requests in the repository.

The changes made as of 23/5/18 :

Branches :
    - Vaults does not require any runes to enter

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

Lots of interesting stuff.

Can't decide if a penetration branding spell might be OP.

Is there any guarantee that the Archaeologist gets an artifact their species can actually equip?

Yes, the artifact will always be something you can equip.

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

I got the ring of Xom's Entertainment (rElec +Fly rElec).

You may want to make it so that random artifacts that use a Ring of Insulation as the base item can not get rElec a second time...

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

Thanks for the new server in EU and for the new branch!

A segnalation:

- I can't continue my saved game, the page is stuck on the splashing screen even after several attemps.

A question:

- Could be possible to add hellcrawl to this server, so even us EU player have a place to play it online with decent lag?

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

The save game issue is pretty weird, I've tried loading my saved games on a current game and starting a new game and it seems to work fine. Hmm.

Hellcrawl is likely to be hosted on the X-crawl server at some point.

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

Thanks for the answer, I managed to reload my game and now even successive reload seems to work fine.

Edit: nope, can't reload again the game. At the same time I can normally load and play trunk games on other server (lantea e xtahua) so it isn't a problem of my browser and\or connection.

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

Are there plans to create "Duskwalker Dwarf" i.e. species which keeps both stealth and ability to cast spells in heavy armour?

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

I really recommend people to try duskwalker. It is more versatile than even Gnoll. I got 2 runes as stabber in robe of night with invisibility spell, now I am in Depths stabbing monsters in crystal plate with ring of shadows and shield of gong.

Hey I am doing random Archaeologists and I got a robe of clouds out of a spellcasting crate so now I have 7.2 spellcasting and no use for it...

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

For some reason Naga Archaeologist starts with two +1 robes and no boots or barding...

Starting with barding might be too good but starting with two of something you can only use one of seems like a bug.

Edit: Ogre arc starts with 3 robes for some reason as well.

Edit number two to avoid double posting.: For some reason Oni can equip barding.

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

1) Duskwalker

2) Dagger of Holy Wrath

Finally, you can drain and holy wrath at the same time, giving a mixed group of living and undead each a little something.

Re: [proclick] X-Crawl Fork (With Standalone server!)

There's been quite a few updates, they can be found here : https://github.com/Vajrapani/X-Crawl

The biggest update, however, is the modification of all upstairs and downstairs into their respective hatches (except on D:1 and branch stairs) Hopefully it leads to a spike in difficulty, and differentiates the fork from the vanilla experience.

The webserver : https://x-crawl.de/ has also been updated to include 8 more forks, including Hellcrawl!
