Not until we've seen ToME4beta252 aka "More betas than the Linux kernel" ...
"3.4 is much better than 3.1, 3.2 or 3.3. It still is easier than 3.0.9, but it is more convenient to play without being ridiculously easy, so it is my new favorite of the versions." - Timo Pietila

The one thing that discouraged me when trying ToME 4 a year ago was that it seemed to be so difficult to tell whether you overlooked some hidden letters and diary pages (What was the overall term? "Lore"?). I remember the diary pages scattered in the first wilderness were listed as Lore item #1, #2 etc., but then I found a letter in the same area with a number in the hundreds. Did you make it easier to find all lore items in the meantime? I really appreciate these lore items, but it would drive me mad if I had to explore every single grid in the game to find them all.

Besides, the in-game tutorial did not tell how to give orders to your allies when you receive your first escort quest, and IIRC the command was also missing in the list of commands, but you've fixed that already, I take it?

You cant order them, except to wait a turn or two, but yeah good point

As for lore, all the lore you find is remembered and when you reach the Fortress you can use the library of lost knowledge to learn back all the lore you found on all your previous chars

Oh, c'mon guys. It's kinda fascinating that I get more FPS from Witcher 2 EE than ToME you gotta love all those crashes, slowdowns, or 90% of dual core processor usage, nearly to the point of overheating...

It's perfectly understandable that adding new features is way more fun than optimizing, or general bug fixing, right? Still, saying it's a RC may seem a little too optimistic...

Don't. Instead, you might want to play a Vanilla half-troll druid and post the dumps on oook! Or maybe a ToME 2 yeek of any class.
