We're at beta 3.25 (0.7.1) and development is still continuing in spite of me being back to university.

I codenamed this release "Christmas Tree" :)

I just downloaded the .7.1 but haven't had a lot of time to play with it or leave feedback. I'll try with .8.0 though!

Looking good so far.

No real quibbles... but I've yet to take it for a full spin.

We're at beta 4.3, dubbed "A thing of beauty".

The highlights? TILES. And containers.

Having an issue with shields. When trying to wield/wear shields (drow female fighter character wielding a rapier) I get the message "[character] can not wear [item name] (missing dependency)." Other than that, the tiles are really nice and I'm having fun with it.

Thank you so much for creating this Zirael, we really haven't any official, solid single player D&D/D20, and as of now, your Rouge-like plays very nice! It's actually pretty ironic and sad when you think about it, the 4th edition was inspired by console and computer RPGs, but got the least amount of video games produced based on it...

Także, miło spotkać tu inne osoby z Polski, szczególnie tak aktywne.

There is Incursion, too - the game I was basing myself on - it has more content but no graphics.

Yeah, Incursion is also a great game, and it has also a pretty interesting setting, but it first versions are a bit older than the fourth edition, I think so at least. It's bit sad that Mr. Mensch doesn't work on it anymore, at least for now, but at least it's now open-sourced. Also, congratulations on being mentioned and complimented by Julian!

* bug fix - skill points going into negatives if half-points are present
* bug fix - add shield proficiency to the classes that were missing it

Two more updates and we're at beta 5.7 and actually, my dev build is getting pretty close to beta 6.

The biggest change is probably the worldmap (beta 5.7) and hirelings (dev).

Very interesting.

I've missed the last few updates, but this is looking a lot better now.

Thanks for the kind words, Sage :)

While you're playing beta 6, I'm brainstorming stuff for the next release, including:

* ASCII mode improvements
* changing prices so that the game operates on a silver standard instead of gold standard
* introducing a parry bonus such as in Incursion
* body parts system and the effects of hitting them
* adding weight to money and banks you could deposit it in
* using a defense roll instead of static AC

Some of the changes proposed are a pretty radical change compared to the game's d20 roots, so I would like some opinions.

Hmmmm. I like the tweak with the last option... the defence roll change.

Still working in spite of the university year.

Right now the focus is on a procedurally generated drow city - which means adding more areas and non-hostile NPCs.

I've got the room name printed out to screen, so that's something long planned finally working.

Opens the possibilities for flavorful room descriptions.
