This is a neat game! I'm actually surprised I haven't heard of it before! I'll give it a try on Telnet soon.
Also goes by the name of "NANOsoldierEnke"
Ever notice how nobody can read anyone else's handwriting? That probably means that the Bill of Rights is a detailed order for party supplies, there is no mention of any Congress, and the president's only duty is "to blow the horn of cheese". I think that.

    -Important bugfixes and usability enhancements.

    -Turned the Temple of Midas into a full-service store and bank, based on a complex deflationary economy.
        *You can now do four things in a Temple of Midas: purchase protection, as before, deposit to a bank account, withdraw from a bank account, or buy items. (Buying works similar to wishing, except for a price.)
        *There is a fixed amount of money in the game. When money is spend or deposited, the amount of money in the game decreases.
        *As the money supply deflates, the prices to things become lower. Thus, it is in your interest to hoard money by depositing it in accounts.
        *Unfortunately, this means that eventually the markets will crash when there is no more money in the game. When this happens the supply counters are reset. During the crash all bank accounts are wiped, too; be careful.
        *As demand for items goes up, so will the price, to compensate for the deflation.
        *The Temple will accept gems in lieu of money as payment, but the price of gems will fluctuate similar to the prices for items.
        *Your bank accounts are anonymous and are identified by a 3-digit PIN code. If somebody figures out your code they can steal your money; likewise, if you forget your code you won't be able to access your account.
        *Different Temples will have different rates, so shop around if you can.

    -Made wishing wells much less powerful and not so abusive.
    -Shields provided by protection are now limited, regardless of how much you want to spend.
    -Money is now buried in graves, not lying next to them. You'll need to dig into a grave to take the money.
    -There are now valuable gems laying about freely in the dungeons, but only if you follow the tunnels to other branches.
    -Bugfixes, interface improvements and a few more useful items and strategies.

The new Temple of Midas situation certainly seems an interesting move for a Roguelike.
