getter77, I didnt try PWMangband yet. To start play any online game you need website and stable game server 24/7. If game doesn't have this - very rare gamer would like to check it. With all respect to PowerWyrm and another developers.

mushroom patch, not much people playing roguelike games nowadays. And its quite often that people who plays roguelikes (because of nostalgie, for example) not really ready to change one game to another. I don't know where did you get information about "hundreds of people come in". My eyes showing me a few tens, who tried this game in last six months. Some of them leave because of game complexity, some just don't like roguelike style. Some stays. Like in other online games. Roguelikes not really popular atm, sad but true.

And I'm going down to Barrow-Downs :)

the only actively developed MMO-roguelike nowadays.

Incorrect. Rogue Element RPG is in active development. Big differences between Rogue Element RPG and TomeNet:
Is it ready for gameplay? Almost - I still have to arrange at least one quest for the game and improve the monster AI a little more.

Great! I'll be very interested to try it when its done. But the most interesting differences VS another roguelike game has to be in gameplay, not in "Multi-lingual" feature ;)

So for now its still true - the only MMO-roguelike to play RIGHT now (not in development; there are a lot of developments going around) - TomeNet.

As you say, it's "the only MMO roguelike" with a reasonable level of player activity. That's the best, probably the only, reason to play it.

Can't agree with you. As I mentioned before - its full scale MMO with huge world, group PvE, economy system, PvP, housing and lot of communication options. There is NO another playable MMO-roguelike with such features yet. Thats why its unique and interesting.

Yes, wilderness recall existed then too. Having to walk every character to gondolin was an insane waste of time that added nothing to the game, even if you only do it once per character.

I dont feel any problem to go Gondolin once at wilderness. Its quite fun for me to have an adventure and travel around. Some places at wilderness has strong monsters with decent loot. So its not boring at all, even by the way to Gondo you could meet quite deadly "water hounds", so its quite fun for me (all humans ar not the same :) )

About one shot off screen kills, I disagree. It's a real time game and in order to see everything in your LoS, you have to use the 'L' command to move your view around.

I agree with it, its not so comfortable. But it playable :)

They will never change ID. Those guys had totally archaic ideas about what a roguelike game should be back then, basically thought tedium is an essential part of the genre, and the lack of change in 10 years makes me pretty sure they're in about the same place now.

This game become better place at my eyes. At that spring was big update. Now another one. May be you just played when this game devs had hard times?

I logged in about 3 years ago, I think. Skills looked about the same as ever. You should build some endgame characters. You're still at the stage where you don't see the limitations of the skills system, imo. When you've gotten some wins and you pay attention to what other people who win regularly do, you start to see there's pretty much just one kind of mage, etc.

Its very long way for the win if you play permadeath char. And I'm in a long way there. I dont wish to play NE character - may be because of it I enjoy the game? :) May be game as everlasting character is boring and full of scamming - don't know. I didnt try it and I wouldn't ;) Traditional rogulike gamestyle with permadeath making TomeNet endless and perfect experience. Its what I feel about this game.

Very interesting opinion. But a bit old-fashioned - a lot of staff already fixed :) But also you said some staff with which I could agree - for example I've already critisized identification system at TomeNets' forum (though I get used for it and do it automatically).

BUT again..... There is no any another MMO-roguelike game. Its not JUST multiplayer roguelike. Its full scale MMO with economy system, with PvP, housing and lot of communication options. PvE of course! And there is a lot of options for PvE - IDDC with party its different universe of gameplay.

Game is in active development, so I belive that more problems would be somehow solved soon (like ID). And I wanna repeat, that its seems some staff already was fixed since your last login. You could teleport in a Wilderness with recall scolls, so no more boring travels. You need only to discover zone one time, thats it - after you could teleport there with a cheap magic scroll. I didnt see any scumming and didnt used it (I'm lvl 36, may be at super high lvl there is some..). And about deaths from 1 blow - if you have ESP and you would see danger before it kills you.

Skill system is quite perfect imho, as an true-arts systems (they expire in 30 days).. So yes ,I could agree in some points, but 80% about what you said is a bit rusty :) Try game again :)

TomeNet is pretty good. There is a big update comming with revamp of magic system. We got 10-15 players online; a lot of shops around where you could buy items from another players :) 2000+ characters at server total (that doesn't counts old characters - they are deleted after 180 days of inactivity).

TomeNet has huge potential as the only actively developed MMO-roguelike nowadays. Come and check it by yourself! %)


Yestarday my archer lurked in Orc Caves.. It was nice hunt.

I've decided to start a archer. Vampire. I think I'll be first archer vampire ever (cause its extreamly hard to feed if you kill everything from the distance).

Also archer has _very_ dangerous gameplay - you cant go melee, needs a lot of blinking and kiting.

But I though my first adventure would be easy... I've just created new character - what could happen to me? I was mistaken. Very.

Ugh...perhaps weird, but somehow seeing a meme here is much more offensive to me than any opinion-based garbage this thread is full of.

The Temple forum is probably the last place on the internet free from this modern malady...please...have mercy :P

Dear sir, I'm greatly sorry that I somehow offended your tender feelings ;D

Anyway it wasn't meme, but question - are you guys serious about Russian threat? :) Its just propadanda (at both sides) and its goal to divert people's attention from real problems in economy and social sphere.

Btw I'm live streaming TomeNet everyday, but I can't post new videos there (too lazy :P ). Anyway I wanna share this epic moment (remember that I'm permadeath hehe):
Ancient Black Dragon vs 31 rogue. I rewinded to certain moment my loong stream:

Also I'm writing Russian guide to TomeNet (today I finished pages about feelings and traps - )

Classic Roguelikes / TomeNet — MMORPG roguelike game

TomeNet ( — online multiplayer roguelike or just MMORPG-rogulike game.

Its wild mix of oldschool singleplayer ultrahardcore roguelike and modern MMORPG setting. So its the very best place to enjoy roguelike with a friends (better, then World of Warcraft, I can say).

CLICK to enlarge screenshot

Roguelike features:
- Random levels generation (btw TomeNet has a lot of advanced technologies for rogulike games - Day/night changes, four seasons, weather, sound and music, powerful macro system & etc)
- Permadeath (but also you could also play "everlasting" character if you wish)
- Huge amount of game actions (kick, throw, search, dig & etc)
- Freedom. Not linear walkthrough of the game. There is even no walkthrough - gameplay is almost endless!
- Hack’n’Slash, great amount of items, monsters.. and other roguelike features. HUGE amounts of situations. For example, at my first day in-game I weared cursed ring of teleportation and several kind players gathered to help me to remove it. It was awesome adventure  :lol: I even got that on video, but its in Russian.

MMORPG features:
- real-time. Don't worry - time passes slower on deeper levels keeping the real-time experience at an optimum.
- PvE in group. Fight with your friends back to back! If you are solo player (as me) its very challenging (hard, but possible) to go alone in the dark.
- PvP - dueling and even PK (full-loot) and stealing! If you don't like PvP - you are not forced to do it. You have to create special character for PvP mode :)
- Economy. Trade, barter, create your own shop or even shop empire!
- Communication. Find friends there! Build your own house or even create village with your friends!
- ...and much, MUCH more

TomeNet is totally free game with open-source for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

TomeNet information and history @ roguebasin wiki

Btw I making live stream videos of my adventures @ TomeNet almost every day (it starts 22:00 or 23:00.. or sometimes 00:00 +3 UTC) at my youtube channel

And as a final word - I've made my video compilation of my deaths @ TomeNet :) Enjoy!

I'm from Russia and it s very interesting to read your thoughts about Russia %)

1) I can assure you that there is no plans about Finland at all. Its not a priority and wouldn't be one in foreseeable future
2) Not all Russian dislike gays. I cant tell precisely, but I think at least 30% (especially people in big cities) is quite tolerant to them. But better do not show if you are gay, "caming out" could cost loss of your job & etc.
