Heh, indeed I am in the not so great state of GA---it was an enjoyable time of it despite the editing woes in post-production Darren likely had to toil on.   :)

Here and there in life I've had people comment that I perhaps had some kinda "radio voice" at times...this now the latest in that it seems in a sense.

And now the first episode of 7DRL coverage:

http://www.roguelikeradio.com/2013/03/episode-66-7drls-2013-winner-reflections.html

Sorry for the many many worthy developers I didn't invite on this - there were far too many people I could have included  :-/  We'll be following this episode up with one or two recordings discussion the entries as a whole, highlighting interesting ones, etc.  We'll likely have a failures ep too.

Well you were on this one, Jo:

http://www.roguelikeradio.com/2013/04/episode-67-7drls-2013-overview.html

Over 30 games discussed this episode!  And I'm sure there were some good ones we missed...

  An episode idea: Frustrating Enemies.

  In the poll about 'turn off's in roguelikes Legend brought up what I think he called 'cheap enemies.'

  Level Draining Wights in many games, The freakin' Ants in Rodney that suck down my strength, Rust Monsters and Legend mentioned the Egg Plant Wizards from Kid Icarus.

  The original Rogue was full of these cringe worthy guys, including

-Giant Ant hits you lose one point of strength, works off of poison resistance.
-Floating Eye paralyze only. No attack.
-Invisible Stalker is invisible.
-Leprechaun steals some of your gold and promptly vanishes.
-Mimic can imitate objects, including stairways.
-Nymph steals something valuable and promptly vanishes.
-Rust Monster corrodes. No attack.
-Umber Hulk confuses you, save vs magic.
-Vampire bites reduce your maximum hit points.
-Wraith can inflict poisoned wounds that reduce your level of wizardry and your maximum hit points.

  I really like that sort of thing. An otherwise weakish enemy with a dynamite special ability. Not an insta-kill, but one that strikes fear. One little mistake and BAM. You don't have to restart, but you might want to.

Interesting, a "most annoying enemies" episode.  I'll have to think about that.  Must try to get John on for the Nethack perspective...

For terrible enemipes, please talk about the eyes from shiren the wanderer. They have a spell that makes you do random actions meaning you don't get a turn, it sucks to watch your hero eat his last three healing herbs while you have no control.

We've just done a new ep on "Introducing People to Roguelikes":

http://www.roguelikeradio.com/2013/04/episode-70-introducing-people-to.html

This is really worth listening to for Eben's account of Eternal Knights from around the 42:40 mark.
