Yeah, I found 'cute' a strange choice of word for Infra Arcana. I don't see it.

Another extra feature coming in the next update is Journal: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95372567/Journal.png

It will serve as a log and notes for quests. Basically what's been happening in the game.

Aukustus, I'd like you to take a look at my output library attempt: http://foo.wyrd.name/en:bearlibterminal.

From this thread I've noticed you had some troubles with libtcod output (like, 5 months ago? =_=). BearLibTerminal should be able to solve those and a bit more. It supports basic pseudoterminal operations, replacing characters with tiles of arbitrary size (e. g. 8x16 text characters and 16x16 map 'characters'), transparency and stacking, using huge tiles for background, etc. In the latest update I've added a Python wrapper for the library.

That's awesome. However it's a major rewrite to use it instead of libtcod as libtcod handles all the fovs also.

you could easily keep libtcod for backend stuff and change libraries just for the display.

but if you're going to keep things tightly grid-based, then you can workaround libtcod's limitations to a certain degree: http://theburningplague.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/improved-map-display.html. By doing that, you could double the tile size and keep the text size as is. You would probably need to reduce down the amount of map displayable at once but it isn't a complicated change overall.

That's exactly what I'd want to do now. I have trouble getting the scrolling camera to work correctly though so I'll see what happens.

Minor update about the scrolling map, I'm closer than ever to get it work correctly, just one not so minor bug to kill. My walls outside fov repeat when scrolling.

Maybe pat would have idea since I use same scrolling tutorial from roguebasin?

If I get the scrolling map working it basically means that for example Marwal will be one large map instead of being in pieces.

Well, it is only natural for such a rewrite (if any) to be postponed until the right time. However, now the cumulative potential of tools available to you should be somewhat higher =). As for libtcod's fovs, it is BSD licensed and therefore allows extracting parts of the library. It could be something like BearLibTerminal.dll + libtcod-fov.dll.

Yeah. I suck very badly at coding so staying at the current model is the only option.

It's not open but I'm willing to share it with you if you want to help me out. I can send it to you. Email or private message?

I've almost finished the class talent additions. Each class receives extra talent and ranger receives one extra in place of stealth. Talents are at levels 1, 6, 12, and 18. Passive talents will be at 3, 9 and 15. Level cap is at 18 instead of 9 but levels are gained at double rate.

After I've released this update I'll start adding more side quests and make Marwal larger.

I have also plans for two new classes, barbarian and warlock. Barbarian will be pure melee and warlock a charisma based caster with spells like WoW's and D&D's warlock.

I've also had some success for ally AI which would mean summons or such at some point.
