Fire Storm is the new Abjuration: Talking About Dungeon Crawl: Stone Soup

We need a thread for this, still, for me to post things I come across if nothing else.

Today's contribution: do you think I have enough HP?



Could still get Dragon Form!

Amusingly, since your policy used to be more like "berserk n/n?"
 
I noticed seeding runs was in on webtiles (at least in CAO) so I created one to run with some friends who are new/coming back, thought I'd also leave it here in case anyone wanted to give it a go too:

good luck!

When that functionality was first introduced, I think there was talk of leveraging it around here to have TT contests, but I don't think anything ever came of it.
 
If someone gets a seed with early trident of the octopus king and all 8 rings actually generated in it I would love to take it for a spin and live the octopode dream.

I remembered that too, but since I was doing this for some newer people I didn't add any restrictions- if someone can thing of some fun/interesting ones I'd be down to play it

I've given it some thought, and I'm not sure ice beasts float. It would be awkward to fight while floating, and they don't need to breathe anyway.

The other option is that they freeze the water as they walk on it, a la Elsa or Galaxy Ice Mario. If this is the case, they must also be able to shed the bottoms of their feet as needed.
 
There is a tournament starting Friday! Are we planning to play? Seems like lots of changes this go-round.
Maybe no one else made it through the board transition. ☹

Well, I'll be playing some, so if anyone wants to make a team, I'm game!

I'll probably play some games, though I'm not particularly motivated at the moment.

If we can't fill so much as one team, I suppose you can slot me in. I'm not sure I'll play more than a game or two, so if we have the numbers, don't worry about it.

We only have the four of us that have posted in this thread so far, so there's definitely room! I'll try to set it up tonight. It's all about the camaraderie for me in these things so I'm happy to have people able to play at all!
 
I really have fallen off of following DCSS, but you can put me down for a game or two. Are there any notable changes from last patch? I know there was a push to get rid of hunger, but it sounded like there were some serious bugs with it when I first looked into it.
 
Double-posting to inform that the team has been set up. As usual,
Code:
# TEAMCAPTAIN CaptBlasto
at the top of the rcfile should be all you need. I have rk, sporo, mogri and gerad in so far, let me know if anyone else would like to join!

I am currently playing the new background, Delver. You start at depth 5 with some gear and I think a bit more skill experience. It seems like it will have a lot of variance. I got lucky with some early kills and currently 2 runes in.

Is there a new version? Are there patch notes? Are they finally fixing the nonsensical idea of having the player be affected by monsters setting off traps in their line of sight?

EDIT: Ah, I see the full list of changes is published here.

Delver looks cool.

EDIT: Oh, wow, that's quite a streamlining. Almost tempted to roll up a few games...

But we have paleotopangas instead! One six-limbed aberration is as good as the next, right?
 
Well it was a slow game but I won my first try at Paleotopangas Delver by worshiping Okawaru (switched to TSO for extended). The rolling charge feels pretty good all game long making for a significant opening attack and letting you instantly close distance on things that need to die quickly is quite useful. I still often wanted range too so I did train throwing up quite high even despite the -3 aptitude and that worked out well too. Delver is an interesting start, having many of the most valuable escape tools identified for you from the start seems pretty decent from my one game trying it.
