Keep it up man, keep it up.  You're like a machine.  lol.

I am quite impressed with what you have done with TOME.  TOME 2 stands as probably my favorite roguelike.  If you can do with 4 as much as you did with 2, 4 will probably take that spot.  Whatever that encompasses I'm not sure.  :)

Well, that was quick!   :D  I wasn't reckoning on a new version landing until this weekend.  Looks like a great changelog, keep up the fine work at a good clip.
