Angband variants table
To understand Angband variants (to 'feel' this phenomenon) and to find interesting ideas for my variant, I've started research at different web-resources (Roguebasin, oook, The Angband Variant Repository). It's great websites, but as there are so many variants - I thought it will be fun to bring all needed information and links to _one_ web-page; so you do not need to walk through hundreds of hyperlinks to get all basic information about variants. So I've combined all these sources under one table at my website:

There are only two fields - name (with the link to source) and description; so you could read everything without clicking around while drinking a cup of tea :)

It's a draft for now, but I'll maintain it and will make it up-to-date in time ;)

FAangbandCE is just the Windows CE port of FAangband, there is no need for a separate entry.

Thanks, fixed :)

You could add your descriptions to the wiki here:

Thanks, but for now I'm using old wiki @ roguebasin :) But it's cool that you are making an alternative. Roguebasin got nice variant's table: ; thought it requires a lot of clicking over links to read basics about variants (that's why I've started my table; for lazy people like me, to read from 1 page).

Btw is finally accessible in Russia! I'll make streams soon ;) I've added link to at

I was really, really curious what Cumband was, then I realized it actually was Gumband. That's an interesting font you've chosen...

Thanks for a feedback ;) I didn't had such trouble.. and table is sorted in alphabetical order so it's quite hard to misunderstand C and G anyway :rolleyes:

Cumband is a nice name for a variant, anyway.. :D

Thanks :) It's outdated; I didn't include even my variant yet. At next week I'll update table and make it up-to-date, including all variants ever ;)

tangar April 5, 2020 22:37

Added several variants, including some pre-alpha ones (like Starband). Can't find anything else. Please help me to fill the table - share any variants which I've missed and propose descriptions. I've also turned on comments under table - so you could directly write additions right there.

According to some info, PosChengband is updated recently to 7.2.1 and should appear in yellow color.

tangar April 11, 2020 15:40

Thanks, fixed! Also updated PosChengband link and description

Your description of Cthangband is out of date.

Both the skill system and speed system have been removed in more recent versions because they weren't working out.

tangar April 24, 2020 07:35

Thanks! Updated description, link and status.

I'll be glad include more detailed descriptions on variants if someone will provide them :)

You are a saint. This should be stickied!

tangar March 12, 2021 16:04

Glad you like it! :) If anyone got new info about variants - don't hesitate to post in this topic, I'll update the table

The Q&A part really helped me I must say haha. I was starting to get very confused with all the names.

One thing it would be great to see on your table is a column to show the date of last update. That was the one thing I found myself still clicking into each link I was interested in to determine if it was outdated, abandoned, current, etc.

Thanks for putting in the work for it! :)

Not merely exhaustive, but exhausting! Kudos!
