Thank you for the link, I have been wandering around looking for new roguelikes lately, I like switching around between games a lot.

How many here have actually played URW?

I have been playing pen and paper rpgs since I was 10 (24 now), and they are great.  I have made some of my best and closest friends as a result of gaming.  The limitlessness of where you can go and what you can do with it is the best part, and is GREAT if you've gotten frustrated with arbitrary, unbreakable boundaries as you find in most PC and video games.  D&D is a good place to start, though you need an imaginitive DM and some other players who are not up-tight rules lawyers if you want to have fun with it.

I work at Target, as a Cashier and Cart Attendant.  Blah.  Next month, I go back to school for my Master's Degree (in Education, so I can be a High School History teacher).  It's a 2 semester program that involves student teaching and taking classes at the same time, so no time for another job really if I want to get ANY sleep.  Yay debt, stress, and no free time!

The title says it.  How many here have played it, and is it good?  I've been eyeing it, but the cost ($50 if you want access to all of the updates that come out, or $10 if you want to wait a long time for full updates to come out)  seems a bit steep.  What do those here think of UnReal World?

I am certainly intrigued by all of this.  I like large-scale rls, and your ambition seems impressive.  Please continue with this project, I will be paying attention.

I have downloaded this game, but when I enter my name I get a Runtime Error '339', saying that comdlg32.ocx isn't working.  What does this mean?

Sorry to disappoint, but Terinyo and the outlaw settlement are the only easily-acessible towns reachable without going through dungeons.  Shops other than the food shop in Terinyo and the black market in the bandit settlement are random or later on (in parts of the game I have, sadly, never reached).  Fortunately, there are lots of weapons you can find everywhere from dead enemies.  It really bites when your weapon gets ripped apart by an exploding door, but persevering through those sorts of situations makes your game more interesting (or, shorter because you can't hit anything).  With luck, you can find something useful nearby or at the black market.
