The =oSpeed came early, and this one is off to the races. The next big challenge is the lich quest coming up

The main thing you need is *Identify* scrolls. One of those arts might have See invisible or something and you'd be able to get a Sustain dex ring for the liches. Or they might have sustain dex. Otherwise you'd need to pack lots of restore dex pots.

I was able to grab a store artifact that had see invisible, and dealt with the master liches with the whip of earthquakes (+ a =oDamage) that allowed me to take a lot of dex damage and still swing for the fences. I spent quite a bit of play time yesterday, will upload my save soon.

After taking out the L's, things moved pretty quickly. Like are2, I dawdled at the enchantress quest, failing it several times while Grirbag stat-gained and leveled up to about 39. I was using Osondir at the time and got a full artifact kit from the antique store.

The dracolisk quest was pretty scary at one point, when I got to a bad position with a couple of them and Corum, forcing a teleport out. For that quest, I switched to Hackmeat for rPois, and am mostly using it with Osondir for extra punch, and the extra attack vampiric for big living bodies (better than healing potions!)

Right now tracking something called the Horned Bear.

I've slain more greater wyrms (as parts of quests) than I can shake a stick at. Besides enchantresses and dracolisks, there are greater ice wyrms, greater nexus wyrms, and (just beyond this save) greater law wyrms. The vampiric branded great axe is my main dragon slayer weapon-- it makes those fights really easy. I am carrying the spear of Mog as disenchant insurance.

I'd sort of like to just drop to level 98, but have to go through a bunch of quests first.

Also, after going through most of the game with excellent luck in mutations, I happened to get stuck with random teleport and twisted body late. The first is not too inconvenient, but very dangerous, and the second seems not too dangerous, but really annoying. I really don't want to lose some of my mutations, but wondering whether I should give a whirl drinking the mutation potions and hoping to get lucky.

Slugged it out with greater nexus wrm and greater chaos wyrm quests and a variety of uniques, with Norsa, which actually got dangerous when it summoned a couple of uniques (GWAR members, Flattus and Sleazy).

I also ran into Elric, heh heh. With Stormbringer and the ring of attacks, things are getting a bit surreal. The body twisting though is causing damage to be rather inconsistent. I have a Greater Balrog quest, yuck. It is getting tiresome having to hack down 20 big breathers for many of these quests.

Ah, sadly Grirbag II died.

Was doing the Greater Balrog test, and got stunned enough to get knocked out. I am pretty sure that it was from my attacks and getting pinged with Aura of Fire (I got knocked out I think while I was swinging) and never came out of stun.

I am not sure I can recover the dump- it's on a different computer. Will try to update when I have time.

Oh, no! I was hoping for a winner. Well, you got pretty far. Any comments or suggestions? (I already plan to create a better type of quest, although it'll be awhile before I try it. I won't even attempt it until I've gone through the Elric books and done a content update based on them. That's when I'll start hitting more basic stuff like the magic system, quests, dungeon generation...)

Hi I enjoyed the variant a great deal. My suggestions actually would be focused more in line on porting over some of the UI-like features of other variants.

For instance, it was odd to have a default player save location-- I'm even now not quite sure how it works, as I had to move the comp save file to PLAYER. I'm not sure if I could have simultaneous save files to work with.

More importantly for me, the lack of console support is really a downer. When I play for instance, I like having a visible monsters window, overhead view window, inventory window, and monster recall window-- not having that info was a real downer.

When using the 'look' command, I found that I could not look at items beyond my current screen. That was annoying for when I drank !oEnlightenment and wanted to see what the items on the far side of the dungeon were.

And squelch would be nice (although honestly I just assumed it wasn't there, if it was, my bad).

The one feedback about gameplay is quests-- I found it interesting, but the later quests got monotous-- having to slog through 20 great wyrms of ice, then nexus, then law, then chaos was getting kinda boring. The fact that you had to do them and had to kill that many was a downer. Maybe focus the quests more on uniques or cut down on the number of monsters (say to about 7-10) on later quests?

The mutations were very interesting-- the only one a had a real complaint about was the twisted shape mutation, more because it added this really big degree of randomness (having damage either x2 or halved is annoying to me as a player).

That said, it was lots of fun. The quests added a strategic element that is good for the game. I don't remember having a character which felt quite so uber before. And the Elric flavor is very strong (and GWAR is hilarious).

Thank you for your feedback. I do want to improve the UI, but my ideas about what that means differs from some others. I only quit arguing against superdupervision and squelch because it was clear nobody was listening, not because I became convinced they were a good idea. Then again, I still think allowing multiple items to stack on the floor was a major mistake and the source of the whole TMJ dissatisfaction that followed. I do, however, admit that drops in Gumband need to get under better control. I'll be working on that. I actually think I've already improved the situation somewhat with my monster changes.

I do not like any implementation of quests I have seen yet in a *band. The Gumband quests do add a common experience touch to competition play, which is why I went with them. I have plans to completely redo the quest structure after I reach the post-Elric-series-revision stage of development. In the meantime, they are optional, so I don't sweat it.

Well, I can see not liking having the randomness in the twisted shape mutation, but it does increase your damage on the average and mutations are not supposed to be an entirely beneficial thing.

The version of Zangband that Gumband branched off of was quite high-powered and Gumband has added some high-powered stuff, so the characters can be quite "uber". Unfortunately, that version of Zangband is quite ancient and the code as well, so adding UI changes from more modern *bands is not trivial and I am not by any means an expert coder. If I were, it'd have big screen. If I could give you a slew of windows with all sort of nifty info tomorrow, I would. I'll just be slowly adding improvements as I go alone and can get them to work.

My last Grirbag died after the comp closed, dying on the Dracolich quest even forewarned. Argh!
