We moved.. again

Ok, I hope it’s our last transfer for now.

  • Moved on new servers. Website and the game itself now have separate servers (for security reasons);
  • Game unbound from metaserver and you could download new version of the client to login directly to the game;
  • New default fonts in client;
  • Default setup now has only one shortcut (to simplify newbie experience).

This new infrastructure make us more stable to DDOS and other problems; game server is now independent from domain and we could change it’s IP at will 😛

For regular PWMAngband client users:

– open mangclient.ini
– uncomment the “host” line in the [MAngband] section
– put “host=”
– save the file

Once you start the client, you should be automatically redirected to server.

Farming, scrolls of life and magical food

  • Due Morgothian curse, farming vegetables become less satiating (thanks to Edgin for an expedition to the fields);
  • At the same time, due Valinor blessin, Scroll of Life now become useful at last. It’s can not, of course, to raise someone from dead, but at least heal a bit and give some other useful virtues;
  • ‘Satisfy Hunger magic’ appeared to be more dull than you could think. It’s hard to become satiated by filling your stomach with pure mana.. So some magic folk could now consider to eat normal food from time to time.

Elvish waybread

  • Scroll of Satisfy Hunger is not so satisfying anymore;
  • All hunger-causing stuff (potions, mushrooms, trap) become less severe (temporary; till ‘disturb_faint’ option would be implemented), so it won’t kick you from the game;
  • Elvish waybread and all other tasties: price in Black Market increased (this cheat was noticed by Varatorn, thanks);
  • Healing potions would be less nourishing.

Hunger managment

  • Slow digestion amulets removed from the shops and become rare to find;
  • Added new ‘hunger’ trap;
  • Satisfy Hunger magic from artifacts activation not so powerful anymore.

Also new characters start without any gold, but with additional scroll of Satisfy Hunger, a few Phase Door scrolls and potion of Cure Light Wounds – so you would have more chances to survive in first dangerous encounters (soon it could be changed back to gold, when gold managment would be more customizable for newborn chars).

To be able to see new trap properly – update to the new version (now it’s include only client and become more lightweight). Also please note that Tangaria now officially support only David Gervais’ tiles.

New race: Black Numenorean

A High Men from Numenor, a renegades and.. ally of Dark Lord? Not all of them was ‘corrupted by many gifts and promises of great power’ by the Enemy. Some just wanted to have a free will and refused to accepted handouts of the west.. But nonetheless they had to choose a side, just to survive under the sky..

Which side would choose you?

Dear hobbitss *gollum* noticed that ‘Newbie Tower’ not there anymore! But… The Oldie Forest is comming closed and closer to Hobbiton, it’s branches creak and squeak on the bright nasty shiny windows.. And it’s deeeep, very deep indeed, my precious. Who live there? We do not know, my precious dear, but hobbities, sneaky little hobbits would pay for their crimes indeed, my precious..!
