I know this is an old post, but I stumbled on it while searching the forum and just thought I'd comment...

Well, there are talking swords - see Turin's death. Not quite the same as an actual living fighting sword, but it's related.

I downloaded Sil, and it compiled on Linux just fine, but I can't get the program to start. I have installed the executable in the correct place under the main directory and am launching it from the same place, but I get an error message about not finding the font.

Code:
./sil: Couldn't load the requested font. (10x20)
The commands ./sil and ./silx show the same behavior here.

I checked, and the file 10x20.fon is there under lib/xtra/font just like it should be.

Edit: I just tried FAangband and after I managed to change LC_CTYPE to a UTF-8 locale like FAangband wanted, I got the same error about not finding the font, so this isn't something specific to Sil. I can open Zothiqband (my questionably-in-progress variant based on ToME 3) though.

Any update on Sil? I'd be sad to see this game go dormant.

There will be. The developer got a child now and was travelling at the time 1.3 was expected (1.0, 1.1, 1.2 all arrived on JRR Tolkiens birthday) to go public. That said, the game is pretty polished as is.

The forum is quite silent now as well, but you can discuss only so much, after you have won in several different ways with different houses, which is what the more active players / posters did.

I know this is a bit of an old post, but I figured I'd reply since I was just dealing with the same issue myself and managed to get it running.

It looks like it's related to a missing dependency from Angband proper around 2010.

There's a solution for Debian based systems here. tl;dr : install xfonts-base

On my laptop running Fedora 21 / x86_64, I got it working by installing xorg-x11-apps (I think it was xorg-x11-fonts-misc that was installed as a dependency that actually did it so that might be suficient).

Hope that might help someone!

Can you knock Morgoth's crown off during the ascent for a 2nd Sil?

Pretty sure he doesn't wear it during the ascent.

From no blood wilt thou shrink. Wilt thou therefore take Túrin Turambar, wilt thou slay me swiftly?'

And from the blade rang a cold voice in answer: 'Yea, I will drink thy blood gladly, that so I may forget the blood of Beleg my master, and the blood of Brandir slain unjustly. I will slay thee swiftly.'

Then Túrin set the hilts upon the ground, and cast himself upon the point of Gurthang, and the black blade took his life.
Assuming, of course, that the lone witness of it "speaking" can be considered a reliable source despite.. circumstances. ;-)

Hello, name's Eugene and here's my question
is Sil still in development?
I'd like to help you with sound design.
