Because of new save file structure and also for testing puproses, server was wiped (and PvP event ended!). So now Angband Online server start ‘ab ovo’ with a lot of new cool stuff:
- We got wilderness.. Beware to go around during the night time! But also all players now know Carn Dûm (dungeon-town) location at start, so you can teleport there at once after creating a new character by inscribing ‘World of Recall’ scroll with @R-9,37 if you wanna dive immideately 😉
- Server got ‘birth_no_selling’ option – so you don’t need (and can not :P) sell items to NPC anymore! Instead you get additional, significant gold drop. Trade with other players, its fun! (btw we got trading channel @ Discord).
- Items drop reworked, to give proper chance for loot. We still working on right balance, so it could be changed soon.
- Adjusted depth of Hobbiton’s dungeon & Barrow Downs.
To be able to enter server – you should update your client. Don’t forget that you could save your macroses from previous client version @ \PWMAngband\lib\user 🙂
