My minions,

Do you know that feeling where you loot a nice shiny flaming sword but can't be bothered to wield it yourself?
That's annoying right?!

Think no more, thanks to Embers of Rage you can fix that with nothing but a simple bit of crafting: the awesome weapon automaton!
Strap this baby to your gloves and fire it up, it will wield your designated weapon to strike pain and dismay (and wonder!) into your foes, for a while!

Available soon in a Tales of Maj'Eyal near you!

Thanks to all those of you who enquired about me, I'm fine; I was lucky to be away on the train when the Paris attacks happened.
I do not say lucky lightly as my flat in Paris is like 200m from the Bataclan.

My thoughts goes to all my fellow countrymen who fell to blind hatred and to humanity in general: we must keep our humanity.

I'll see you all soon in Eyal where friendship among players is the normality; I love you people!

Those of you that were already playing 4 years ago must remember Susramanian "Sus"; who made made cool things for ToME like the Mindslayers, many vaults, the inscriptions system, the shield block system, the elemental staves system, many many egos, some quests, and so on.
Simply put he was great !

Yesterday he poped up again, saying he'd try to not code anymore because it takes too much of his time but we all know he won't resist for long ;)
So, welcome back my friend!

Also, in the years he left he continued on the gamedev road started with ToME and made his own game; he refused to post about it on tome's forum without contributing again but I think he deserves some help for all he *already* did!

So if you want to help one of the Great Dark Priests, go check out http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=531942024 !
I've had the pleasure of playtesting it and it's quite fun, obviously very far from what ToME is but that's great!
Oh and do not be lured by the mobile-ish gfx style, the game itself looks rather deep.
If you are a tweet-maniac you can also follow him https://twitter.com/NCRGames :)

Thanks my minions, you may now resume achieving many deaths ! ;)

My fellow minions!

"I Aten't Dead" as the great granny weatherwax would say (if you do not get the reference, go read the Discworld, like now!).
Many developments are happening on the orc campaign front as we speak and hopefully some news will come soonish ;)
ToME itself is not forgotten and the 1.4 branch is slowly coming to maturation, along with a new sleek UI skin!

But I admit, I did take a few weeks off on vacations, even gods have too ;)

Go forth my minions and play!

In a bold move, the Alchemist's Guild of Maj'Eyal has finally hacked the control crystals, derived from Sher'tul tech, that power all their golems!

Every alchemist has been given an usage manual and should now be able to have root access to their golem.

 

No more dying because your golem was too dumb, you can now program them exactly as you desire. In C !

 

This update to golems should be available Very Soon (tm) to all Alchemists of Maj'Eyal!

 

PS: The Alchemist's Guild wishes to thank http://jslinux.org/ and Fabrice Bellard for their amazing work!
