It would probably be a good idea for a Roadmap page to be added to the main TomeNET website along the top with the rest---people are more likely to try/start and come back after absence if there is a sign of plans in motion that can be discussed while seeing it all fall into place.   Did you ever spend any time with Portralis tangar, both before the now stalled rewrite and after?  It was strong on the quest/narrative front compared to almost all of the Angband/Moria descendants.

The U/I, aesthetics, ease of control/use updates, sound/music improvements, an "offline mode" as I mention above for crisis situations where online servers can't/won't work or preference, a strong focus on the early game foundations---I am sure all of these things can continue to improve and grow the player base.   The most important first step, to not become WoW or UO or other such projects is already taken care of---which is huge because that tends to be what dooms other projects to have nowhere near this lifespan or personality needed to carve out their own legend and legacy.   8)

Yep, I'm too waiting for roadmap for centuries :) even wrote about it at forum http://www.tomenet.eu/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=708&p=2007&hilit=roadmap#p2007

I suppose devs got their 'closed' system where they work at the game. Maybe it would be open one day :)

Anyway - devs online everyday and anyone could ask them something or give an advice/suggestion (/rfe command). I didn't see so much joint work with community in other games.. A lot of stuff which players suggested was implemented in last update (I suppose even ~30% of my personal suggesions was approved and its _a lot_). So I like devs work and their communication with a players is very unique and positive.

I didn't play Portralis yet and much more roguelikes awaits... But thanks for information, would check it up %)

Heh, when you do get to it, remember to try both* versions---though it is hard to say exactly where Classic Portralis reached the highest point before things started to/went out of control.   :P   I think all of them are still up in the archives:

http://variaz.proboards.com/

Actually, there are some very good design discussions as far as class designs/powers/exotics stretching quite a distance back---wouldn't be surprised if a fair few could be adapted, if not improved even, for TomeNET in the future since I think most of the complexity is already there at the foundations.

Version 1.4 - Redraw of all floor tiles & updated other monsters/objects. Also we got 2 additional tiles cause of staircase duplication. Now we got new Tier '0' for dangerous middle-lvl demons and... surprise in Bree :) Aaaand fixed a bug - now staircases displayed correctly at the map (shift+m).
