Hello.

I've been lurking here for a long time and finally decided that I have to come out of shadows.

From roguelikes I like Dungeon Crawl, Dwarf fortress, DoomRL, little bit of others too. I'm not very successful player though. Only roguelike I've finished is DoomRL.

About developing it's not much to say. Not enough enthusiasm to such project yet :) But if anything, it will be probably in java.

And please be kind to my English. It's not my first language.

Welcome aboard dweller.  I wouldn't worry about being very successful.  You have done better than I.  I've never beaten one.  :)

Also, a late hi to everyone else who has recently joined.

Hello world. I've been debating with myself for a while now whether I should register here or not, and I decided in the end to just go ahead and give it a shot.

I really got into the RL genre when I first played 'hack' in Ubuntu's BSDgames package. Once I found it, I pretty much downloaded every game in the repository that showed up in a search for 'roguelike.' Out of all of them, the one that I enjoyed the most was Gearhead. Since I found it, I've been lurking on the roguebasin wiki for a while, and even popped in on an IRC session once.

I'm a Free Software-obsessed terminal addict who particularly likes the C language (although I'm also a strong Python supporter). I'm weird in that I prefer to program strictly in the C89 standard, and play RLs in full-screen glory on my old CRT monitor. In my spare time, I'm also an undergraduate Computer Science student (isn't THAT interesting?). I think it'd be nice to develop some games in the genre, since RLs seem like something I might just be able to handle. Not to mention that the 7DRLs look like they'd be fun challenges to take part in.

I also have a habit of not shutting up when I finish saying what I need to say. Maybe I can break myself of that habit while I'm here.

Talk away, it can get pretty quiet around here sometimes.  :)

Welcome aboard.

I'm Nate,

It's great to join this forum and see so many like-minded peoples, developers, and programmers. I, myself [23 years old], have programmed a few roguelikes in my day usually just to try out ideas and such in my free time. I do graphic design for a living and occasionally free-lance program to afford things like Christmas presents for my family haha. Just wanted to announce another presence here at the forums. It's a pleasure to meet you all!

Ah, welcome to the place mysterious Planes of Sedia gentleman---thanks for dropping by and be sure to stick around  8)  Do add the Temple under the Roguelike Resources section to accompany the Basin as the notion strikes you amidst the current migrating and rebuilding efforts.

Hey everyone!

I joined yesterday, saw this site on RogueBasin.

I started working on my first RL a little while ago too.

Hello.  I like pretty much anything roguelike and like everyone else I work on my own. 

Very nice board here.  Good crowd.  Thanks for making it.

Welcome to the forum :)

It's often a bit quiet here, so more people with more ideas and talk are always very welcome. Don't let the silence intimidate you, if you have questions or ideas, just post, and they will be answered.

The visitors had a hard time understanding,
but the temple was always full of hooded, silent figures,
walking around the place in silence.

Posted my introduction in the wrong thread, so here we go again ^^

Pretty new to the roguelike scene. Found Nethack on an indie games' website a year ago or so. Played a few other roguelikes as well, including DF. Took a hiatus from them for a while. Tried IVAN again a few days ago, started checking the communities behind roguelikes, hoping for updates to games. Thought I should join the community.

You guys seem like an awesome bunch, so I decided to start here :)

Oh, and my name? Goes way back, don't ponder on it too much ^^

Welcome to the awesomeness that is the roguetemple.com forums, Wolfmilf! We're the Chuck Norris of Internet forums.

Fenrir holds out a plate of hot pancakes.

Have a pancake.

Thanks, OMNOMNOMNOM

Wow, someone needs to make a Chuck Norris oriented roguelike :O
It would flying roundhouse kick ass!

Except, Chuck cannot die. Being him would be too easy, being against him would be impossible :/

I told you we shouldn't be serving pancakes! Iron rations would fit better :(
