A small bug

Not sure, whether this was already mentioned. However this can make the game unbeatable.

1 Pick cornac corruptor

2 Unlock Shadowflame

3 Invest into Wraithform

4 Find some dungeon near rocks.

5 Enter dungeon, cast shadowflame, leave dungeon.

6 Step into rock on globalmap.

7 Wait till shadoflame runs out.

Not sure about current version, but earlier repeating steps 5 to 7 would eventually bring you to
the zone right under the main continent without any ambushes/dungeons/towns generated so you never get back.
UPD: Tested it in current version. Still works as described.

[ToME 1.2.3] Ambush - Bulwark

VOD : http://goo.gl/xQDyDO

I never thought my first clear ambush in nightmare is a melee class...

Anyway it's only 0 live left now :(

Undead races

Finally beat the Master, wanted to get Skeleton but got the other.
Spend entire day trying to get the Skeleton, but die while trying to lvl up for Master.
This game, srsly.

"Overwhelmingly Positive"

I had not noticed before, so maybe the wording is new but on Steam page for ToME (http://store.steampowered.com/app/259680 ) it says:
"User reviews: Overwhelmingly Positive (530 reviews)"

Yup! Overwhelmingly!

So big thanks to you all, and go add more great reviews :)

The voice of your dark god !

Hi my minions,

A new roguelike radio has appeared, with me inside!
http://www.roguelikeradio.com/2014/09/episode-91-our-first-roguelikes.html

If you want to hear me rabble about how I it all started, this is the place to be!

WIki updating, looking for community and staff comments.

As a player of tome, and one with many questions regarding my actions in the world of Eyal (often before wanting to commit to them) I find myself ever referring to the wiki on things that I simply do not have knowledge of. However regarding some artifacts, zones, and a few other things that are most likely out of date I have considered contributing information to revamp it. If that's something the community has an interest in seeing happen, or if the developers of addons and the main game are interested in seeing restored I'd love to hear thoughts and tips on how to go about it. I hope to ever be of service, and hope to hear some comments regarding this venture.

First non-exploration victory

Rilimia was definitely one of my favourite characters I have played. She could literally sustain Time Shield all the time, and with Aegis the shield value was over 2000. Aether Beam was a bomb of a spell, and with high silence and arcane resistances it barely harmed herself. Two separate instances of Disperse Magic (one talent and one from gear) kept enemy sustains down and several healing sources combined with Arcane Shield provided additional endurance as needed. Quickened Spells metamagic helped dealing constant damage.

The final boss battle was pretty easy except for two times when I lost all my sustains, without teleport it would have been game over. I am a little disappointed because Aeryn died halfway through and Rilimia had to sacrifice herself to save the world. Then again, it was theoretically a good ending. Mages as powerful as her can only bring destruction in the end and shouldn't exist. Unlimited power is a responsibility and easy to abuse.

I know my game is heavily modded, so it was not a legit victory, but I still am pretty proud of it. Too bad I couldn't continue into the infinite dungeon.

Rilimia, the Mardrop Arcanist, "The Aether Nuke": http://te4.org/characters/120591/tome/f23df83b-93c2-48e5-92dc-b25b18df7d2c (I loved the cloak, Threads of Fate. I'm not sure if it's from an addon but it was one of the coolest items in the game)
