Indiana Jones

After reading about Hallucinatiomushroom's inspiring Ditchdigger game, I've decided to try a human rogue, no spells game weilding a non ego whip. Going to allow throwing flasks of oil but no other types of damage causing items e.g. wands rods, ill use weapons and bows in town to I'd the damage bonus for selling. Wish me luck, I think ill need it.


Indy

Indy 101

I hope you will be playing to some Indiana Jones music in the background.

I salute your insanity! Odd challenges are fun. Yours is definitely much harder than a shovel wieldin' troll. My only advice is to hoard all your major healing. After what's likely going to be a long grind-a-thon, you don't want to burn out at the very end like I did.

If you are going to attempt something crazy, I think you should be pure about your rules. You will feel prouder if you can describe your exploits without having to mention exceptions. You can avoid being tempted to test weapons by playing with the no_selling option.

Thanks for the salute, I'm finding the early game really easy so far, enchant weapon scrolls are too cheap and in the stores quite a bit. Can get a +2 damage whip before entering the dungeon the first time. Had a few stupid avoidable deaths, Nar, and 4 headed Hydra. But its fun. Really looking forward to seeing how much damage I can get to.

Okay no selling is now part of the game, should make it a lot faster not having to collect gear.

Never played with no selling before, I like this option a lot. Speeds up the game. Was just thinking that if Steamband has whips, a pistol and whip wielding adventurer would be a lot of fun.

FYI, Chris's Hengband fork, Chengband, has a class called the Archaeologist that's partly based on Indiana Jones and gets special moves while wielding a whip

Sounds cool, ill have to check it out. Hengband is my favorite variant, love the diversity of the classes, and abilities. Really enjoyed the Beastmaster class, gotta love having a great wyrm of law, or a steel dragon as a mount. Chaos-warriors and Ninjas were lots of fun too. I wasn't aware there were versions other than Entroband, thanks for the info
