Unangband 0.6.5

In case anyone missed the news update, Unangband has a new maintainer, a new home page, and a new release.

This is definitely Big News! Hopefully a rough Project Road Map and general gist of dev/release pace to come is coming soon as well----2017 needs all the good happenings it can get.

Thanks for the heads up.

I think Un has the most beautiful, interesting dungeons out of all the different roguelikes I've played. Good to see somebody taking great source material to spin out new adventures.

Can anybody give me newbie tips for Unangband? I mean, I know how to play Angband fairly well, but the overworld map and multiple dungeons has always scared me off, although I've always been intrigued

the overland map is pretty tough--some of the guardians are extremely dangerous at level, but you can play without it as a birth option.
Edit: fixed bad autocomplete

Hello all,

I am the aforementioned new maintainer. I am glad to see that there are others still interested in the game. While I do not have a release schedule mapped out yet, when I do I shall immediately post it on the blog (https://dgolddragon28.github.io/Unangband/). Should anyone be interested in collaboration, they are welcome to contact me, either on these forums, via email, or by submitting a pull request, as specified in my first blog post.

Regards,
-the pseudonymous Gold Dragon

Had my 1st crash:

You wound the Dunlending agent of the Nazgul!
You wound the Dunlending agent of the Nazgul!
You have slain the Dunlending agent of Nazgul.
-end-

& Unangband is no longer responding. Charged it in melee. Windows 7

In the early game, always keep mushrooms and bad potions for as long as possible. Use them to coat arrows, and your melee weapon only in the worst cases or if you have a huge stack. Archery is critical.
Note: Coatings of blindness and confusion are THE way to kill Wormtongue.

Bags of Holding exist for small objects.

Study the map. There are certain regions where it becomes impossible to return home (recall doesn't work well in wilderness zones, IIRC). When entering those areas, be sure to be fully stocked with consumables, because they all have difficult guardians, and sometimes more than one.

For example, Killing Adunaphel, aka 'the second rider', at cl 25 with no SI or !speed is very difficult. It is conceivably possible, though, if you
(a) arrive soon before dawn, so that she is pulled from her fortress.
(b) have a large stack of oil with which to start forest fires.

Note that she is not immune to fire and is vulnerable to bright light.
While I strongly recommend these practices, I don't actually recommend taking her on without SI and decent stacks of !speed and !CCW.

@wobbly: odd. Can you give more details about the crash?:
