Comp 191
 
Competition 191 is up. It's an FAangband Ent Druid.

GLHF!

Things to note:
  • Ents can hide in trees - if you're standing on a tree square, you will be hidden from monster tracking until you hit something
  • Druids get quite good bare-handed attacks, and taking the Power Strike specialty makes that even better
  • Use 'M' outside dungeons to get a map of nearby levels
  • Use 'o' in the Merchant (shop 0) to put in a standing order for stuff (books are recommended to start with)

Something seems off with {good} weapons, launchers, and ammunition. When wielded and used successfully, the to-hit and to-damage modifiers remain question marks. Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

I like playing FA again, but I've definitely become spoiled by the wonderful improvements made in Vanilla. :)

Think I'll need to take a break from wrestling with bad code in textui! :) FAangband, hmmm... I tried to hack SDL2 into it, but it's kind of not trivial. So I'm back to square one - changing the colors of main-sdl.c to something less annoying :)

They work differently to V3.5 - you only learn them when you get a perfect dice roll (for to-dam) or a blow where you just barely hit (for to-skill). I'm finding it really annoying :)

"When spring unfolds the beechen-leaf and sap is in the bough,
When light is on the wild-wood stream, and wind is on the brow,
When stride is long, and breath is deep, and keen the mountain air,
Come back to me! Come back to me, and say my land is fair!"

From Treebeard's lament for the lost Ent-Wives. Wait a second! Beechbonnet is a female Ent. An Ent Wife has been found at last!

It has already been pointed out to me that the entwives didn't disappear until the end of the second age :)

We did thrallmode in the last FA comp. Not everyone finds it so... enthralling.
