Whenever I play IVAN, I get a limb or two ripped off by hedgehogs, and pray, just to have it made of glass and shatter into pieces when I get hit. [editline]5th March 2012[/editline] Anyone else wonder what a Half-Life Roguelike would be like?

[editline]5th March 2012[/editline] Anyone else wonder what a Half-Life Roguelike would be like?[/QUOTE] Yeah I have some sprites that I made for a Half Life (1) roguelike a long time ago. They were never used for anything, though.
How do I drink blood in DoomRL? I have the berseker thing, and it tells me I need to taste blood.
[QUOTE=MeltingData;35010222]How do I drink blood in DoomRL? I have the berseker thing, and it tells me I need to taste blood.[/QUOTE] That's most likely figurative. Having a thirst for blood means you're eager to fight.
[QUOTE=Aredbomb;35010270]That's most likely figurative. Having a thirst for blood means you're eager to fight.[/QUOTE] It says specifically, "You need to taste blood!" Plus blood pools are on the ground where I am, so I think it actually wants me to drink it. I'll ignore it for now I guess. Finally died on Level 15. About 1800 kills, made a score of 12000.
drinking ommel urine made me stronger in IVAN. what
Any bodily fluid from an Ommel will increase at least one stat. The mythology in IVAN is pretty fucked up.
[release] [b]Vapors of Insanity[/b] [img_thumb]http://www.roguetemple.com/z/vapors/beach.png[/img_thumb] Vapors of Insanity features: A big three-dimensional world, consisting of a big variety of outdoor, building, and underground locations. You can play both in hex and orthogonal mode. An original spell system, where you can build complicated spells using simpler spells as components. (think Magicka) Also original skill/experience and fighting systems. Many hopefully interesting magical gadgets that can be found. A variety of creatures and items to find: about 150 types of items, 150 species of monsters and plants, 150 materials (including potions), 150 types of magical runes, 80 skills and spells; some of them are parametrized. These include both the standard high fantasy stuff and more original ideas. Graphics that are supposed to not only have the advantages of a graphical display (better aesthetics, accessibility for new players), but also the roguelikes' classical ASCII display (clarity, allowing one to use imagination, simplicity of creation of new monsters and items). An ASCII mode is also provided for SSH access, and other hardcore ASCII fans. [b][url=http://www.roguetemple.com/z/vapors/download.php]Download[/url][/b] [/release] Sounds p cool
I love IVAN. It's the roguelike I've played the most. Decided to dust off the IVAN folder and play again. So I drink out of a fountain and it turns me into a werewolf, then I decide to drink again, and it spawns a shitload of spiders. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/99673/I%20love%20Ivan.png[/img] Here I am thinking, well I'm fucked. Turns out they were all friendly. Say hello to my army of spiders.
Shit like that is why IVAN is one of the funnest to play. Usually roguelikes are dotted with hilarious moments, IVAN is a series of them.
This has made me want to play IVAN again. Will be back once I die. [editline]17th March 2012[/editline] Bitten by a hedgehog. Dead.
A spiderweb ripped my groin off. I feel... humiliated. IVAN is one sick/funny game.
Started up an IVAN run, immediately I am accosted by 2 hedgehogs. My dog runs to help me, and murders the first one, but the second one proceeds to absolutely RUIN my crotch. I have a crippled crotch, and a book for a god of chaos. Do I pray?

What's a good thing to wish for in IVAN?
Glass crotch. Dammit.
I love DoomRL, it's just really well done, and not very hard to pick up. Also mouse controls.

So I kicked Kenny the puppy into a bear trap. Then I bashed Kenny to death with a kiwi, fucker ripped my left arm off though.
[QUOTE=Hans-Gunther 3.;35273785]So I bashed Kenny the puppy to death with a kiwi.[/QUOTE] I don't think Kenny's ever made it to level 2 with me before. He always runs off and I never see him again.
[QUOTE=RearAdmiral;35273795]I don't think Kenny's ever made it to level 2 with me before. He always runs off and I never see him again.[/QUOTE] I would usually lose track of him somewhere along the line, then later stumble into a room full of puppy blood.
I actually starved wearing full somewhat enchanted armor in IVAN. I couldn't find the level after the first boss. Worst way to die in a roguelike.
[QUOTE=MrDestroyer;35196818]Yes. What's a good thing to wish for in IVAN?[/QUOTE] Scroll of Change Material is supposedly the best item in the game.
Did you guys know there was a roguelike for the Genesis called Fatal Labyrinth? I just found it today. It's pretty interesting, but it's also on the easy side and is a very bare-bones roguelike. There's only about 30 kinds of weapons and armor, and a handful of rings, wands, potions and scrolls. No character classes or special abilities or anything like that. The only randomized elements are the floor layouts and locations of monsters. It'd be a pretty good game to recommend to a beginner in the genre. It's even lighter than Dungeons of Dredmor.
Does anyone wants to start a roguelike succession game? For example we take stone soup, make a list of players who want to play, create a random character and play 1000 turns each making a screenshot of every interesting even we encounter and pass the game to the next player When the character dies we create the next one and go on until everyone is bored

Fucking IVAN is out to get me. I started a new game, all was going well. I managed to stomp a mushrrom to death without being horribly maimed. I found a couple of decent axes and a broken pair of boots. After kicking down a door I found a repair scroll next to a zombie, my boots would be of use! Or one of them at least, what ever I'm naked now anything is a step up. Seymour and I valiantly fend of the zombie, I sever both of it's legs and Seymour bites it to death. The scroll is mine! I read the scroll, eager to take my first steps on my journey... And the game crashes. If I had lost an arm I'd still be playing, but get a minor chest wound and the game decides you aren't suffering enough.
I didn't know that in nethack your pets don't like cursed items and never step on them Interesting [editline]30th March 2012[/editline] Got a cursed ring which made all my attacks miss, turned it into meat and ate it My way of solving problems
Playing Ivan, just going along, feeling amazing since I have a great axe with me, when suddenly I notice Puppy is not with me. So I go back to see where he is, and I find a room that I didn't notice before, open, filled with blood, spiders, and my dog's corpse. I shut the door and prayed to the god of destruction immediately after. Replayed, lost my dog, picked up a polymorph ring and a meteoric steel spear, raped, turned into a skeleton warrior and had my arms cut off, and then prayed to the destroyer of worlds. He sent me into a dimension of blackness or something, but everything i touched turned dark, so i prayed to the king of gods. he smote my head off with a small hammer.

In IVAN, what's generally the best thing to polymorph into?
