Both cryptos and fiat have not intrinsec value.

The advantage of cryptocurrencies over fiat currencies is that cryptos are decentralized.

The drawback is that you can't pay everyday things such as ladyboys and alcohol with them :-(

Unoriginally, Jupiter Hell. That Kornel Kisielewicz has done such a great job with DoomRL (now DRL).
Also having a blast with Caverns of Qud and looking forward for the project to be launched officially for the complete version.
That's about it as I haven't been playing much recently.

Hahhaah.. good old Krice. Yes actually that wouldn't be bad except we couldn't play roguelikes!
Maybe going back to the '80s would be enough ha.

Looks like the devs have been introducing some interesting updates! Haven't played for a while but really looking forward to. Did they manage to balance things a bit with hi ego mind controllers?

Skeletor, a Steam forum scan suggests that you can revert to a previous version in the betas tab? So you might not need to locate the save files at all.

Thanks Jim, good to see you're still around. So many years we've been in this forum ha.
Can't find this betas tab on steam though, where is it?

Minotauros, really liked the CoQ comics that you have made  :D

I agree with you guys.
Once the main quest plot is developed and the game isn't anymore in pre-release stage, I guess it will officially become a major roguelike given its size and complexity. I have been having a blast so far.

Anyway, does anyone knows how exactly I recover an old version in order to play a save game from it?
In the FAQ it is mentioned that Steam stores older versions, but not sure where I can access them.

I just had the most memorable game.. true kin artefix, managed to find a spring of infinite fresh water very close to the town, met a few dromad merchants posted nearby and managed to get very strong artifacts.. crafted electrobow and several grenades, found other absolutely monstrous weapons but decided to stick with the bow because of its infinite ammo with low consumption of energy, light emission, and high penetration value. Blasted my way through becoming millionaire in the meanwhille. Killed a few faction leaders, water rituals with others and became respected by several tribes, but hated by robots.. completed all argyve's missions and the girlshings one but then instead of going for the pilgrmage I had the bad idea of accessing golgotha through the trapdoor and I felt like a lion thrown inside a pool of shark - killed hundreds, thousands of those nastly little crabs while exercising on the threadmill but they kept coming and coming so eventually I had no choice than to get transported to the following trapdoor.. and same thing again, another threadmill.. I had Joppa and Grit recoils with full battery so decided to find a safe place away from the enemies and then teleport the hell out of that madness.. tried to phase my way out with shade oil but looked like it was shalerock everywhere around, then decided to blast my way through and explore around little by little.. countless crabs were teared to pieces by my laser bow, my grenades, and my gaslight kriss.. I managed to venutre a few metres north and at one stage a droid and a slime approached me, both very hostile, and trying to rebuke the bot was what led to my demise as that slime was some sort of super green jelly which stunned and killed me quite quickly notwithstanding my high armor value.
That was full on!

Thanks Minotaurus, that is the impression I had. Oh well, I'll have to find a headlamp or a way to see in the dark without wielding anything then.
Yes, the last update is great, adds further politics and diplomacy in the game. Slaying factions leaders will always often have an impact on your relationship with multiple tribes, such as doing the ritual of water with one who is beloved by its kin but disliked by others.

Tzan, personally I prefer to avoid guides and live fully the impact of a new atmosphere and game world, and even more I stay away from grinding (see signature) - but that's just me.
In terms of game balancing, not sure where you were and which equipment you found, however as far as I have seen even with very strong characters there is always the chance of getting teared apart by some slumbering woken up by a passing dragonfly, a pack of snapjaw doing a contest of grenade-throw, or that little critter which attacks you for 1 damage which triggers your venomous spores which angry that huge pack of equimax surrounding you - stuff like that. Below the fifth dungeon floor is usually when things get more serious.
Anyway not fully sure how the developers handled the balancing so far, however it is nice that one can play mutants (which are supposed to be more difficult than true kins, at least in the early game) and there are weekly and daily challenges with predetermined character/world seeds.


EDIT: my character just went burned alive by a dawnglider right after taking some stairs, 'a stone block hits your head, you die' deja-vu.

Nice updates.

I just found some quills and accidentally equipped them.. now can't unequip normally. Is there a way to get rid of them? Really needed that hand for a source of light...

Thanks getter, this is interesting.
I love the new steam achievements planned.. Become a goat. Wear your own severed face on your face... brilliant.

Yeah I am really enjoying playing this masterpiece.
As of now is the game complete/winnable or still mostly in a sandbox stage?

Other Roguelikes / Re: Barony - 3d roguelike game

OK, horizontal limit of mouse movement is not the feature of Barony anymore :D Just tested on 2.04 release. Earlier, I was playing quite old 2.02 release.

Thanks goodness - but can you jump, or fly up/down a la Might & Magic? I totally love complex rpgs full of secrets where you can also fly and discover further secret treasure rooms, shortcuts, etc.. going through otherwise unsurpassable torrents of lava, exploring deep underground areas, etc.

I recently bought this game and so far I have to say I am really impressed. Attention to details, interesting and elaborate story and lore with good sense of humor, good mechanics, high amplitude of different configurations of possible PCs, good graphics and music. Most importantly, the devs seem very passionate about it and update it on a regular basis. Definitively recommended.
