XBAND is a variant of Angband.

In XBAND, you fight monsters and amass treasure. You can capture souls and add their power to yours.

XBAND is a roguelike game, where all of the graphics are made up of plain ASCII text.

XBAND is an Angband variant based off of ZAngband 2.7.2. I made this game to bring new gameplay elements into the world of Angband variants.

What makes XBAND unique?

1. The soul-gem system. In XBAND, you build your own magical rings and amulets by binding the souls of defeated monsters to jewelry.
2. The races. In XBAND, you play the part of an nasty monster. You might be an Orc, or a Troll. You aren't fighting to save the world. You are fighting because it's fun.
3. The auto-ID system. In XBAND, as your characters advance, they gain the ability to evaluate items at a glance. Some classes, like rogues, are very good at this. This helps speed things up in the later parts of the game.
4. The randart system. In XBAND, every artifact is randomly generated. As you descend deeper into the dungeon, you will find artifacts of greater and greater power.
