The legendary Goblet of Yendor, some say it grants immortality, but others say its infinite power will drive you to madness. Rumored to be made of solid gold, inlaid with gems of incredible beauty and size, it will surely fetch a fortune on the black market. Many a rogue and scoundrel, lured by dreams of endless riches, have set out to steal the elusive artifact from the depths of the Dungeon of Dread. None have survived, will you be the first to succeed?

Rogue Fable II combines the challenge, tactics and strategy of classic roguelikes with a modern interface and graphics. Designed from the ground up to be beatable in a single hour, but with a huge variety between runs. Rogue Fable II includes:

- 6 base character classes with the option to multiclass and customize over the course of a run.
- 8 skills, 35 talents and 24 abilities from which to build your character.
- 8 dungeon branches, randomly chosen each game so that every run feels unique.
- 50 monster types each with their own abilities, behaviors, strengths and weaknesses.
- 80 unique items to discover.

Special thanks to: Alex, Colten, Dmytro, Iryna, Jeremy, and Rob for their testing and design input.

Offers quite the challenge, I like that. I noticed in a comment that you were thinking about adding other classes. My two cents: since the skills with no skill-book are ranged and fortitude, you could add some classes based on at least those two. Like an archer and maybe some sort of an self-buffing/healing book.
I've seen people already commenting a lot on the warrior and the rogue classes being too hard, so ill just chime in on that. What I haven't noticed people commenting about is the lack of an ice magic skill; this way you can't upgrade your ice-magic skills in your ice-magic book, if you happen to find one.
Thanks for making an awesome time-sink!

awesome game!!! its like the original imposible rogue game, but actually playable, im still trying to make it further than floor 3, i just have one problem, sometimes randomly, the game freezes, its not a BIG problem and it only happen sometimes but the only way to repair this bug is to reload the page, but that will erase your current run, if you solve this problem and add more classes and general content, you should launch this game on steam greenlight to get money of this masterpiece, if that happen, i would DEFINITELY aprove and buy it, keep on the work!

Thanks for the review :).

By randomly freeze do you mean A) when descending or ascending stairs. B) when some kind of fire or explosion occurs or C) none of the above. There's a few crashes that I'm trying to figure out that I can't seem to replicate on my system so any information you can supply is extremely helpful.

I'd like to do a few more iterations on this game before considering steam. So maybe by Rogue Fable IV it will be ready for the big time. Thanks for your support!

Not sure why you waste your time putting a game like this on Newgrounds. This is a quality RL. You should put it on Steam and make money, I'd buy it.

Very fun and pretty difficult. It took me a lot of tries to win. For people that say the warrior isn't viable: dont go rushing into mobs of enemies. If there are maggots let them come to you and take them out one by one.
