Updated, found a few things, ruby red slippers, which must look nice with the spurs I had surgically installed (hoped they'd improve speed, but no, some sort of kicking damage, not sure how to operate that though...) Love reading the quotes when I find books... had never heard of or don't remember so many things in this game... want to read Solarion now...

Seems like the spurs are automatic, occasional.

Looks to me like naturalists get advanced occult lore. (Helpfile just mentions it for Aesthete, Engineer, Gentleman, Rogue, Medium, but I saw it in another character dump, Clouded's I believe. Also, it's in natsk.txt in the spoiler folder, although that says an earlier version number.) So that might be the next thing I put point in, having found some spellbooks.

Oh wow, demonic will more than doubled my spellpoints. and it looks like I can cast way higher stuff... don't know how long it lasts yet though.

Oh, okay, makes you very powerful for 5? turns, then you have no mana left...

Had a crash on a superb level, no idea why, going to try to remember to save game when I enter a level!

Got a level that looks like it was generated with some earthquakes. Don't recall seeing that before, wonder if it's related to my earlier use of earthquakes... would make sense that they'd affect more than one level.

Crashed again, was wearing a freedom of mobility ring and the freemason provincial grand master hit me with a paralyze attack and it crashed. Don't know if that's relevant or just an odd coincidence. (Don't think the first crash had anything to do with a paralyze attack... as I recall I was fighting a room full of snakemen from afar, hit them with two blizzards, and then it crashed.)

On 27.3.2017 01:03 clouded wrote:
There's a crash when a potion is smashed by poison, most often by beastmen, so it's best to save when those are around. Not sure about the other crash.

Demonic strength not only makes your spells better, but it also heals you to full HP/MP! This means you can chain cast it for as much MP as you want, at the cost of the stat loss it causes. Not sure if it's really intentional but it's definitely useful.

One thing about Steam hand--the last few levels are essentially impossible-posses of Nazi Panzers and Steam Drills patrol the level, boring huge tunnels everywhere, and blasting the dungeon to hell. Dive fast and kill the bosses. There is no possible way to handle them, even for the most ridiculous characters (e.g. mecha dashing hussar that can single-shot Ming the boss.)

Interesting note about the demonic strength there... just found a Cthaat Aquadingen spellbook that has a Voorish Sign, at first blush same thing as the Demonic Strength, but they appear to stack and together turn the 5 turns into 30 turns, seems more useful (of course 700 to 0 mana on the 30th turn if you forget to recast could be unpleasant!)

Odd thing, Leather Waistcoat of Gideon Barr sure looks like it ought to be a unique item, but I have two now, one equipped, and one stored at home. Can't for the life of me remember picking up a second one either, think there was some sort of duplicating bug or something.

Been carrying that Light Spiritual Recovery for so long without realizing that it makes the whole demonic will chain possible from 0 mana.

On 2.4.2017 00:48 Qyx wrote:
Once I started using demonic will/voorish sign, had a couple close calls casting unsafe spells (Wormsense, e.g.) and summoning nasties, but once I started limiting myself to Lord of the Forest, Lightning Storm, Whirlpool, Earthquake, and the like, it's really been working well. A bunch of lightning storms will take out most anything and as long as you don't have anything in line of sight, you can cast it far away. Killed Dracula and some other unique vampires that way. (The disadvantage of Whirlpool and Earthquake for killing is that they don't seem to give any experience.)

On 2.4.2017 02:02 clouded wrote:
Once you get deep enough, probably close to where you are now you can get really massive XP from pits using the huge AoE fire/ice spells. Dinosaur pits are the main one, no ranged attacks and they are weak to cold.

Pete Mack is definitely right about the final 15 or so levels being extremely tough to fight through, so I consider depth 20 around the last safe place to stay. Any further and it's going to start getting painful to try and kill everything, but mages can use mass genocide which is another reason why magic is so good.

Just had another crash, lost about my last hour of play, then I realized I never turned Autosave on... d'oh!? Okay, it's set to every 50 turns now!

Died fighting Fu Manchu--ran out of mana, did not mean to cast again, but did by accident, then it was all over. By the end of the game, I could not go in the weapon store without the game crashing, for some reason. It crashed a couple times during the fight with Dr. Moreau as well, maybe cause he was summoning beastmen.
