Yep, it's done.

Second Wind, folks, Second Wind is here.

It's a witty blend of Text Adventure, Roguelike, and Sweet Simplicity.

All in all, there are 20 classes, three skills each, three major areas, four endings, countless monsters (as in, I'm too lazy to count them,) treasures, specialty shops, equips, weapons, and more.

Folks, this is one big game.

Also, there are medals, lots of em'

I sincerely dare you to beat the game on Nethack Difficulty.

And remember, dying is all a part of the experience :D



The last update was on October 21st, Version 1.57:

- Fixed up the Saiyan's awaken doing absolutely nothing.
- Fixed the broken meter glitch... Hopefully.
- The "explore" segment should run faster.
- And some other stuff I can't remember.

Send a PM with any additional problems and I'll get on them as soon as possible! <-- Now there's a wiki too!

good game theres a little bug

squidly responds:

That's a thing with your attacks - if you can't break through their armor, you actually get negatives, which means they heal, I'll be fixing that soon.

Dang, had a nice paladin nethack run, but wasn't able to reach the second zone. Killed the dungeon master thrice but just went on ...

Nice game though. The randomness made me crazy sometimes. It's easy dying on level 1 with a chain of monsters coming in. Level 5 is always pure luck for me. All those guys there tend to dodge too much. After that it's getting easy as pie. Never had problems in zone 2/3.

Anyway, still searching for the rune of engagement and pieces of time. Don't know if getting to Herschel is worth the effort...

squidly responds:

It's a Rune upgrade for the Wizard :D

Now, as for the DM glitch, I honestly can't pinpoint where the heck that's coming from other then the fact that it happens when people are too high level for him and can practically auto kill him.

So, in short, try not to be level 14 in the dungeon.

Fun game :)
HOWEVER, once you get to a point in your game where you get NaN potions, it becomes impossible to get the 10 potions award, as the NaN potions carries over from game to game. Is ther a way past this?

squidly responds:

Restart the game!

At what point did you get NaN potions? PM me!

Mute only works when you continue

Pots kill you against the final boss (but you can attack untill he's dead, so so don't know if that is on purpose). I got strong enough he couldn't hurt me though.

Tip: Core Psion Class kicks ass because he has a 100% hit full strength attack later on use both skills to hit the "unhittable" guys everyone is complaining about.

Finally beat it! Alright so first off the randomness is a huge pain in the ass. I don't wanna go through 3 shops 2 clerics and a massage therapist when I have no gold and full health. Also the only way to effectively build the stats on your character is by taking advantage of the churches, but because of the randomness you never get the churches you need for your character. I stuck around on the first floor way past lvl 10 in hopes of running into a krillex church(never did).
The Esper character breaks the game. The focus ability always causes a hit so i dumped all my dex for pow. At the end I had 90 pow and hit for 140 without sensing. Also I noticed you placed a damage cap on the player even though I hit for 140 when i used sense I didn't do more that 170.
A few suggestions the way damage is calculated is confusing sometimes i'm not sure how some characters work yet. A more indepth description of abilities and point trackers on the modifiers so you can see your likely damage output.
All that being said it is an extremely addictive and fun game.

Now that de-bugging is mostly done, I can focus on re-balancing.

Any ideas for how to re-balance the Espers?
