I'd vote random - part of the evolution fixed, part variable, interesting overall.

I found ?new bug in the latest version: Apparently, the game no longer lets you sell "equipped items" to ANY stores. Is this intended?

Wow, is it normal for a Death Sword (monster) to have 15 attacks in a row?

Ooops ... That's embarrassing!

It will be fixed for next release (1.0.31). At least there is a workaround

Dunno. Did it kill you?

Death Swords are +20 speed and are 3x faster than a +0 speed player. So you should expect 12 attacks in a row in that situation. A quadruple move is probably likely as well with the random speed system.

Does a weapon of (life) give you something except the slays? Just ate a +4 one, but I don't see any changes (Was expecting +4 con).

Life weapons don't boost Con. Instead, they boost "life", effectively increasing you life rating. They aren't coded at the moment, but I suppose I could add them for next release.

Similarly, version 1.0.30 doesn't let you drop 'equipped items' to your home.

More bugs that have been overlooked:
For Beastman Chaos Warriors, the Chaos Patron name is embedded in the same line as the birth mutation on character creation screen.

Items disappear when Chaos Warrior gets a 'Use my gift wisely' action at game start

Various messages for Chaos Warriors, like 'Rise servent..etc' at birth do not show up via the 'p' command...annoying, imo

Play a Beastman Chaos-Warrior, and you'll see what I mean.

I just released 1.0.31 here.

This is a big gameplay change for the Death-Swords, and a bit of display cleanup. If you have a substantial character running in 1.0.30, you might be disappointed if you upgrade. Here is why:

The essences required to enhance your current body (weapon) are dependent on that form. Generally, as you evolve, the number of essences required increase (perhaps doubling). As an example, Slay Evil requires the following:

Broken Death Sword: 2
Death Sword: 4
Poleaxe of Animated Attack: 8
Hellblade: 16
Death Scythe: 32

As another example, Slay Orc requires:
Broken Death Sword: 1
Death Sword: 1
Poleaxe of Animated Attack: 1
Hellblade: 2
Death Scythe: 4

You should be able to get at least some good slays in every form (except perhaps the first which is over too quickly), but then you *should* lose most of them when you evolve. If I got the numbers right, that is. I really wanted to play a character thru while designing, but something just came up and I need to be away for a bit.

Sorry Hugo, I didn't get time to address you last list of bugs. But I did fix the shop bug when selling or dropping equipped items.

Next planned additions are Qyulthulgs, Golems, and perhaps Rings!
