Hello.

I guess i'm the only fool not using an alias, also I'm from Mexico (Cancun, and if you must know yes it is a really wonderfull place to spend vacations in, but living here isn't so nice). I'm 21 been playing Rls since i was about 12, started off with nethack, dipped my spoon everywhere else. I am currently into Incursion (love the D20) and some coffe break Rls (Doom, Alien etc.) I don't think i'll ever code, i guess i'm just not into it that much.

Loved the chavs comments, I spent some years in scotland, you got NEDs and YOBs over there.

Yes, great !! You all get skill points in languages.
Drawing on a tangent, is there any roguelike actually managing more than one in game language? (apart from ancient scrolls and magic books of course), say for example, not being able to talk to an NPC, (or a whole town for the matter) or perhaps not being able to read signs (they could probably figure out an inn or a weapons store but perhaps not a magical ring specialists store)
I don't think it would work on many, especially if they don't handle many NPCs but it would be intresting to see it implemented in a game similar to ADOM.

Well, Dwarf Fortress has different languages for different races (mainly they have different sounding names), but I don't think it creates any barriers.  Definitely a good idea though, IMO.

I don't think it'd work for normal roguelikes, since the average lifespan of a character is much too short to learn a language. The only thing I see that causing is frustration (AKA: Damn it! Another town where I can't do anything!)...

However, for longer-lasted roguelikes, say Dwarf Fortress in fortress mode or the GearHead games, it might be a nice addition, maybe helping define races/places/countries/etc.

There's a great old DOS RPG out there called The Magic Candle:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Magic_Candle

In it you had to learn dwarvish in order to complete certain spots. There was a vocabulary of fifty words or so, maybe a hundred. it was pretty neat.

    • Get Out!!
Hello all. I am someone that is not you(mabe). 24 years old and i live in Santa Cruz, Bolivia right now. Former U.S. Navy. Started with Angband in 2k. The only roguelikes i've won are Zangband and TOME. I haven't played that many different roguelikes. Came here to find more. I am learning C++ and i eventually plan to try making a Forgotten Realms Roguelike.
