Well I'll be damned---WoTC actually managed something quite sensible!   :o    Could it be they have finally learned after all these years, shots fired at Pathfinder to boot?

Actually, I apparently don't lurk enough D&D forums, just some extreme jackassery.   :'(   I guess I was bound to hit some utterly dud links when it came to this sort of thing at some point given how many I've posted in the thread over these past many months...

Beta 6.2 is out.

As I've started new university year, I will have less time to devote to working on the game. But I can and will work on the Wikidot site.

Found a bit of free time on my birthday, so bleeding edge builds now have item flavor lua errors fixed and death messages have been added in!

Oh, cool. :) I was just trying it out and I think I was hitting those item flavor errors. :D Apologies if this is answered somewhere else in this thread (it's kinda big!), but is there a place to get bleeding edge builds (or do you mean compiling it from the Open HUB page?) I want my wands and potions! :D (Especially if I'm going to be fighting cockatrices on the first level. Mean old cockatrices...)

Ferret - OpenHub is just a statistics page, but it should have a download link.

In any case, the bleeding edge files are on GitHub https://github.com/Zireael07/The-Veins-of-the-Earth/archive/master.zip

Cool. :) I'll try it out either tonight or Wednesday, depends on when I finish up a small upgrade to Demon. :D

I got a Fighter to 6th level or so. :D I got into a D&D group a month or so ago, but I found myself wanting just a litttttle bit more D&D than the few hours a week that provides, so I found this at a good time. :D

Some feedbacky stuff / questions:
* It's pretty fun. :D I'm looking forward to playing more, especially with item flavors working. :)
* Are scrolls supposed to be infinite re-use?
* I had a lot of trouble staying fed (though it didn't seem to matter that I ended up Starved!), is there some way to use the corpses to get food ala Stone Soup? I tried just 'using' them, but that just got rid of them.
* My Shaman started with Cure Light Wounds, but couldn't cast it for some reason? Other spells seemed to work as expected for a non-prepared spells class.
* Veins' interpretation of Mobility (+4 AC permanent instead of +4 AC vs. opportunity attacks) is reaaallly powerful. Not sure I can think of a character it wouldn't be my first pick on.
* Speaking of feats though, the only time I could see what feats did was in the Bonus Fighter Feats UI. Is there a way to see that normally?

Going to try mages out once I get the bleeding edge thingie, those are where my heart is anyway class-wise. :D

1) Scrolls and wands have 50 charges but I didn't get around to displaying the charges anywhere :P
2) Using corpses is a bug, unless you used drop :) Devouring corpses and cutting them into chunks is planned
3) Gonna take a look at this.

...
If you want to play a mage, you'll have quite a hard time - best to multiclass.

I'm slowly working on adding more spells and on making skills useful, but it takes time...

I understand, believe me. :D I've been appalled sometimes by how long it takes me to do a decent-sized content push. No worries, I'll have fun times with what's there. :)

Listen and Appraise have been coded in. Detect evil/good/law/chaos spells are in, too.

Next beta slated to arrive in December - my studies are a mess in the literal sense.

In the meantime, take a peek at the changelog.

Most important changes:
* T-Engine 1.2.4 compatibility
* AI improvements
* monk abilities & Stunning Fist
* increased XP rewards for low CR monsters
* ported over all Incursion templates except class templates (since we're doing NPC classes in a much more flexible way) and undead templates
* a whole heap of bugfixes

Spent most of last week researching various homebrew class fixes and the tier system.

Decided to work on documentation. Split off the changes and classes to separate pages; added tables to class descriptions. Color-coded said tables.

http://veins-of-the-earth.wikidot.com/base-classes

Now the tables are complete for most classes that are in game. Time to sit down and actually code the missing class abilities and spells.
