That does seem incredibly fitting, and I am bang, bang, bang up for that!

How about have no savefile, the player chooses with the restriction that it has to be a monster race? Some monster races will be easier than others, but would anyone care too much? Thoughts?

That's OK with me! This way, I can play a quylthulg (and *lose*) and you can play an awesome spider :)

BTW, I'm always adding new changes and fixes, but I can try to wrap things up on a moment's notice. When would the next comp start?

Er, like now. I'll set it up soon; continue changing or not as you choose :)

No, I'd rather take an entire month off from coding!!

I was hoping to finish some cosmetic changes to helpfiles, but that is such dry tedious work that its hard to stay motivated. Anyway, I pushed one last release (1.0.37) here:

* 1.0.36 fixed a bug with Quylthulgs entering the town Arena. Normally, the town Arena blocks character and monster summoning rendering our poor Q hero defenseless. But now, I enabled both player and monster summoning whenever the player is a Quylthulg.

* 1.0.36 fixed a bug with new virtue effects causing any monster to become friendly. The monster selection is supposed to be themed to the virtue in question (e.g. Unlife influences undead, Faith influences angels, etc).

* 1.0.37 fixes a stupid coder error for the reforging service. Reforging is supposed to limit the maximum object creation depth to 100, and did so by applying the MAX function. Of course, when you want to set a max, you need to use MIN.

* 1.0.37 also adjusts the reforge power down a bit. Fame is more important and you should probably try for at least 100 fame before doing anything big. The town service now tells you your numeric fame value.

* 1.0.37 improves the in game helpfiles, adding more information on some new monster races (Quylthulg, Elemental, Golem, new Giant evolutions).

You can pretend I uploaded this last release last night before the new competition started if you like :)

Cool! Source code can be found here. I've stopped uploading source to the google site due to the 100MB size limit.

I know Angband isn't a democracy (;)), but is anyone else up for an anniversary Frog Knows comp next?

Does it actually run on modern systems?
