thankyou

Nice update, looking forward to trying out the new wanderer class.
It looks like the only way to play :)

Stoning Poison?

No fix for not being able to buy stoning poison?

Character compatibility

When putting out a new version, I was wondering if you could include a note regarding whether or not characters from the previous versions are compatible, i.e. whether your characters will disappear from the load screen unless you opt to show older versions. For instance, I'm working on an unlock and don't want to make my character buggy by updating to a version where it might not really work. It would be helpful to learn that so I can put off updating if necessary, or go ahead and update if it should be fine.

Re: Compatibility

Minor version changes should never break compatibility. Major versions can, and likely will. E.g. 1.7.4 did not break compatibility, neither will 1.7.5, or any number of minor versions between now and 1.8.0, whenever that may be.

Silly question perhaps.. but

Silly question perhaps.. but where do I select the Wanderer class?
I would have guessed it is under the Adventurer metaclass, however it is not there.
I have already unlocked Adventurer normally. Do I need to finish the game again to unlock Wanderer as well?

Somebody already created a wiki page..

ToME players have been really good about helping us hapless non-programmers learn unlocks and achievements.

Okayu

Thank you for your reply. I shall let my launcher do its job now.

Great news, but...

Thank you for your hard work, this is great news!
But have some issues with previous and this version, two of my characters doesn't have a bonus zone, and one of them have a constant LUA error when trying to use Command Staff talent.

Maybe a more controlled wanderer?

wanderer is probably the best idea for this game at this stage. But trying it out making me wonder if we could be offer like 3 choices and pick only 1 for each new random class/generic telant? Judging how many telants are in the pool, I can see most of wanderers being a total disaster to play. If people are starting to reroll for reasonablly playable seeds, I see a point to make it less random by giving the player some level of choice.

Re: Maybe a more controlled wanderer?

Someone already made that addon: https://te4.org/games/addons/tome/wanderer_3in1

Re: Maybe a more controlled wanderer?

Or consider adding a re-roller to the first Stat page on creation.
