If you're going to serve up hot takes, could you at least make them entertaining please?

Great fun variant.

Most success I have had in any variant. Favourite was my demonologist, I ended up dying as I got confused about which demons were mine.

Had the whole gods thing as well which added to normal class powers.

To add to the comments above about different play styles:
My favourite story was one formum member ("Wastrel" I think) who won the game with a hobbit rogue who only dealt damage directly by setting traps. Never hit or shot or wand/rod of damage. Lots of wands of stone to mud to set up "dances" and from memory they used a lot of charm monster wands too.
Remember reading it just "Wow - whole different level at this than me".

Oh, and the first time I tried the troll quest, was a long time before I gave that a go again.

Oh, I certainly appreciated that!

I originally discovered ToME 2 when I was on a computer that couldn't play ADOM, and was wondering if there were other roguelikes with an overworld, quests, and so on that I could get my hands on.

Coming from ADOM, ToME 2 had a drastically different feel--but I was into it.

Actually, ToME 2 was the reason I even got acquainted with bands to begin with!

Yes, the Void 🥶

So much to explore and do, AND it’s a fun game to play, that’s what made it great.

at one point early on in your adventure, you will go back to .. uh, well, i think there's different starting towns, anyway, i went back to *my* starting town and there was a OOD monster looking specifically to kill *me*, because of the quest i had just completed.

i never made it to the void. I only had one single character (a warrior, possibly the most boringest class in tome) make it to the final .. which i later discovered was not final ... fight with Sauron, only to die.


.. i should probably get back to tome 2. Does anyone have a working Windows release?

The Fury mod of ToME 2 is still one of my favorite games. It gets a bit closer to Tolkien. There are some incredible pitched battles like around Orthanc, ent army against orc army, and some wonderful ascii towns like Dale on the Long Lake. Really fantastic. I was sad when ToME headed away from Tolkien--although ToME 4 is pretty incredible.
