This is the good stuff, IBOL. The UI is blessedly polished and accessible, and the game seems to have tons of nice stuff and powers to uncover. Also, I loves me some monstra biformia1. I did just a few quick play-throughs in shallow dungeons. As much as I love the randomized critter descriptions -- this kind of thing needs to be a lot more in RLs in general -- the monsters do feel a bit same-y, at least on lower levels. An "A"nimal with the head of a baboon and the body of a pigeon seem about the same as one with the head of a chihuahua and the body of an elephant. Also, I noticed the higher level monsters didn't crop up so often, so that even on level 5, I find myself facing mostly As and the occational B. Again, that may mostly be a problem with the very short dungeons, in which case … well, maybe they should be either rebalanced or taken out of the soup altogether.

As always,
Minotauros

1 Or should that read "monstris biformibus"? :P

Where can I download newest version (preferably the one without corrupted saves)?

very soon I will post it. tonight after work if I remember.

thanks minotaur, I will look into that.

I know the "physical descriptions" of monsters don't have any impact on play mechanics.
it's just something I wanted to see if I could randomize.

I think to get a good idea of the game you need to play to at least a depth of 15 or 20,
and then you'll starting finding some really incredible weapons and learning some
truly powerful spells.

And you did manage exactly that. Superbly, might I add.

Good stuff, I'm glad I stopped by this thread when I did. Random Realms is a very enjoyable and pretty distinctive roguelike. I find it one of the easiest to dip and and out of. It's certainly one of my go-to games when I feel like playing a roguelike but don't have a specific one in mind.

I'm not done with Random Realms yet, but do you know what I'm working on now?
Approaching Infinity
It's a graphical roguelike set in space, and it's pretty awesome.
If you've ever had an interest in Random Realms or any of my games, I urge you to click the link above.
Have you ever been there? I'm there now.
