r.g.r.a looking glass discontinued
As of March 31 2008, my ISP's USENET feed provider ceased to exist (buyout by another company). Since that date, I no longer have any access to the USENET. Therefore, I am forced to discontinue r.g.r.a frontend on website.

If anyone is in the position to arrange for a non-binary, free of charge feed, I would be very glad.

FAangband 0.3.3
Surprise! FAangband 0.3.3 is now available as source, windows binary, WinCE binary, WinCE source or Mac OSX for download from usual place. The main change here is the inclusion of two new modes of play - ironman and thrall modes. Ironman is roughly as you would expect, although with a few tweaks to allow the player to get through towns along the way, and to progress from the bottom of dungeons. Thrall mode is a little like ToME lost souls, and a little more like Steamband wonderland mode - the player is dumped in the desert outside Angband with some survival equipment, and no home to recall to. Announcement.
