Some thoughts about future class system: after choosing a class there comes an option to choose between two subclasses, same equipment limits apply to both subclasses, first talent is the same for both and next two talents are different for each subclass.

Possible subclass names
  • Marauder (current fighter)
  • Defender
  • Archer (current rogue)
  • Assassin
  • Arcane Caster (current sorcerer)
  • Blood Caster

Explanations
  • Defender: defensive talents
  • Assassin: talents for melee combat
  • Blood caster: talents that use hit points for casting

Vanguard

Make a fighter class based on moving around a lot.  That's always the best class.

I'll see.

I have completely reworked UI: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95372567/UI.jpg
Here's also the new character screen feature: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/95372567/CharScreen.jpg
Next version will also have a button that changes between tiled graphics and ascii graphics. I have a white ascii version working at the moment.

Some of the upcoming stuff:
Code: [Select]
Bugs
- Some fixes to revealed maps
- Inventory after death displays now equipment also
- Fixed a bug where getting teleported out of monster's sight made monster follow endlessly player and blocking resting
- Sorcerer can now wear amulets as before it was blocked by bug

General
- Reworked UI
- Character Screen shown from 'c'
- Fully playable ascii mode from F1-button
- Houses in Marwal and Undershire have wooden tiles

Heroes
- Stat gains every level but every second attribute makes a difference; 0-1 stat = +0 dmg, 2-3 stat = +1 dmg and so on
- Rogue renamed to Ranger, can use any bow and one-handed weapon and armors up to iron helm/mail boots and gloves and chainmail
- New Rogue class with melee skills, can use equipment up to short bow, short sword and Vassaruth's armor

Items
- Ulf'thad's potion has now the attribute added to its name
- Quest reward for rogue for finding the portal; Auril's shortsword

Monsters
- Frost spells do 1.5 * damage to flaming monsters
- Flaming monsters are immune to fire damage
- New monster: Ice salamander: can freeze player with melee attack
- New monster: Fire beetle

Maps
- Abyss is now 8 levels long and divided into earth, air, ice and fire layers; monsters are different on those levels

At the moment item letters are from ADOM and monster letters are from Angband. However I'd like to hear some opinions about character sets. I've read the topic here http://forums.roguetemple.com/index.php?topic=1260.30 already.

I guess the choices are pretty much Rogue, Angband, NetHack and ADOM character groups. I'm wondering if its an issue to combine those sets or should I just stick using all characters from one game's set?

Next thing I'm going to do is to implement the attributes Wisdom, Constitution and Charisma; that completes now all the main attributes str, dex, con, wis, int and cha. My basic idea is to use D&D namings for all kinds of things but without any compability so I'm free from licenses.
