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 Angband.oook.cz website.

Hi,

I've just pulled these stats from a poll I'm running on my blog at the moment.
29 respondents so far and the poll has been open two days. The question is
'Which roguelike settings would you like to see more of?'

High fantasy          5 (17%)
Steampunk             9 (31%)
Cyberpunk             6 (20%)
Post-apocalyptic     12 (41%)
Lovecraftian horror   8 (27%)
Splatterfest-horror   2 (6%)
Space opera           8 (27%)
Hard science fiction 11 (37%)
Anime                 2 (6%)
Giant robot combat    6 (20%)
Western               5 (17%)
Pirates              11 (37%)
Feudal Japan          4 (13%)
Modern                5 (17%)
Historical            5 (17%)
High school           3 (10%)
Transhumanist         5 (17%)
Alien                 9 (31%)
Other                 0 (0%)

The settings I just completely pulled of the top of my head and include genres
that already have roguelikes in them as well as ones that don't. Respondents are
allowed to answer multiple choices, so that's why the figures don't necessarily
add up.

You're more than welcome to stomp along and have your vote. Feel free to work on
a game with any of the above suggestions.

Andrew
