B43 is right around the corner and it brings a whole slew of niceness!

One of them being a new format for online charsheets, you can see a preview here:

This is (should) both better looking and a better system internally. Previously charsheets were saved as a json dump witth some bis of html formating embeded, which makes them very hard to parse by third party and makes it uneasy to change the display.
B43 introduces a new sysem which outputs json dumps of a much better parsability. I will probably later on open public APIs on to allow searching the vault and retrieving charsheets :)

For this year's ARRP (Annual Roguelike Release Party) I have decided to not do a ToME release, but instead release a new content for it, without requiring users to even download something!

Every 30 minutes for the one week the server will push a new zone, Fylish Island, automatically to all characters.
It is a level 20/25+ zone, with 3 levels, a custom lore and chat and a very very very special reward!

Have fun, and be sure to be logged in to get it!

At level 40 and 50 you get to learn a prodigy. They are single points talents, not bound by class. So any class can learn any of the 42 possible prodigies, given they meet the requirements (a stat >= 50 and usually something else).

A few examples:
  • Massive Blow: deal big weapon damage + knockback, if a wall is it i is destroyed, does more damage
  • Meteoric Crash: all your spells have a chance to call down a meteor that deals damage, spawns lava and stuns
  • Garkul's Revenge: Deal 1000% damage to all constructs and 20% more to all humanoids
  • Temporal Form: turn into a gwelgoroth and cast anomalies
  • Eye of the Tiger: each spell/mind/phys crit reduces the remaining cooldown of a spell/mind/phys talent
  • Fast as Lightning: moving very fast in the same direction for 3 turns lets you pass walls
  • Draconic Body: Your body hardens, when pushed below 30% life you are healed for 40% of your total life.

Sounds fun ? well there are mannnnnny more to discover!

Version 1.0 has never been that close, the next beta will be the last to add new content, after that it's feature freeze to hammer the bugs before V1.

To celebrate that and prepare for the future, I submited ToME4 to the steam greenlight project, so please go vote for it and pass the word to your friends!

Hello fellow players!

I'm looking for some competent video editor that could make an entertaining gameplay trailer (so base on real gameplay video footage) for ToME4.
