New Gem Types

New Gem Types

Adds several new gem types and attempts to fill in some gaps in Tiered gem colors; also adds the Crystal race.

This is a continuation of jayseesee's original addon. It's my hope that the gems in this release are balanced, consistent across tiers, and useful to a variety of different characters.

Also hopefully all the Crystal's balance issues have been worked out: it should be an interesting tactical challenge to make best use of its unique mobility, find the right time to exploit its Runic Saturation status clear Stasis talent, and optimal self-imbued gemstone for each dungeon.

As always, please let me know if you find any issues in terms of bugs, game mechanics, or interface!

great race

Love the races adding the two gem playables. My only realy issue is the crawl. It is quite annoying to have to activate a sustain to move all the time, makes back to back late game dungeons a massive bother. I moved the hotkey to activate to "q" it got like that. Please consider changeing it to simple movement like normal, with perhaps the ssutain enableing immobile with a hefty benefit or sometthing?

just found this gem.

I'm just starting to get into ToME. This is my first baby step into addons. What a great choice.

I really love crystals and gems and appreciate the research and consideration that you put into this very very much.

Its absolutely super work.

It makes a huge positive difference visually and is more satisfying to the gamer. Makes me want to drop everything and learn the Alchemist.

I was overwhelmed by the amount of addons and afraid that they would be disruptive - changing the basic game or such. And I have seen one or two that I would classify that way still. But this addon makes me feel comfortable trying more.

Thank you.
