I like epic, complex, non linear etc. so ADoM sounds like my cup of tea. I just found this hilarious gallery.

Haha, I haven't thought of that!  :)
Is it just me or are the dungeons in ADoM static?
Also how do you find enough food in the beginning? 50% of my characters die of starvation in the dungeon to the southeast of the village. I even eat my foes!
I like the sterile look of the dungeons here. In ToME you find trees, mountains and stuff deep down. That just feels odd in my opinion.

The ADOM dungeons are static.  I never really have problems with starvation, just eat corpses when you find them and you're not already bloated, and be sparing with the rations you start off with.  I've only ever really had problems with starvation with races liem trolls with big appitites.

hehe, yeh I hate that too. Where an underground forest/mountians sounds like a whimsical idea, it's just an odd feeling. I dunno which I wanna play now heh, ToME, or ADoM. Just lost my lv 10 guy in ToME seconds after finding a talking "demonblade". Some orc shaman killed me. Heh, my fault though. "Oooo demon blade. 'killling monsters, thats good.' AAK it talked! Wehehe ima go killing spree for you, my pretty talking red blade." .....You have died.

ADoM sure is tough. I've noticed that monsters tend to get tougher as your character levels up. I don't like that (or maybe I'm imagining it), The danger level should be decided by places (ex. dungeon level) and not character level. Is it so or am I imagining it? An example is when I'm backtracking through a dungeon trying to get to the surface and I'm gangbanged by a horde of goblins just when I'm almost at the stairs... those goblins weren't there when I entered the dungeon...

Ok, so it's only that certain dungeon that spawnes monsters relative to character level not all dungeons?

i think so... the 1st level of the dungeon to the NW of terinyo always spawnes monsters that are twice your level... good place to get XP but theyll kill ya really quick

Hmm some quests seems "uncompletable". For example I'm trying to rescue the carpenter from the cave southeasy of the village, but when i descend the stairs there's just an empty room... I've tried searching, but I can't see anything.

Found it. s = search ws=constant search. Does that mean that ws makes you search while walking? It doesn't say *searching* like in ToME.

Btw, magic users are neat! :-D
