Under rating threshold (show) I'll need to stockpile and double-check rune effects now that I know the overworld trick. Undead on weapons looks like it might heal your minion through kill/"sacrifices". Not what I'd expect....

Under rating threshold (show) Woo! It's true. Items left on the Overworld carry through reincarnation. Runes stay identified. Time to kill the Balrog again and test with the Amulet of Yendor or Death's Scythe.

Under rating threshold (show) Jiberish001: Looks like Heal Rune does heal enemies on weapons. And Stun/Bleed Rune on armor will stun/bleed you randomly for small amounts. It's very equal magic.

Under rating threshold (show) "New Game+" and the epilogue is a nice touch. Now I just need to test the "Timeless Bubble Overworld" hint I heard of.

Under rating threshold (show) What would be really great is if there was a Lore menu for runes, so you could use Identifying runes on other runes to get the details of their effects.

Under rating threshold (show) Why does closing the menu cause a very small passing of time, in dogmatic mode? Even this brief moment can be devastating in later levels.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay, I need to confirmed, please. Does enchanting a weapon with a Heal Rune, cause your target to regen HP? This seems to be the case as far as I can tell. Shouldn't that particular enchantment heal you when you attack with that weapon, instead of healing your target?

Under rating threshold (show) @Toast_Ofwar If you use a Null rune on a cursed item it will uncurse the item, which you can then drop.

Under rating threshold (show) Hey Colorstyle, what is the point of that whole "Your fury will take form", "Elbereth" thing? Also, is there any way to drop a cursed item? I only lost my cursed knife because a nymph stole it from me. Lucky me.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is amazing. The ways level can be generated are infinite, you will never get the same level! I loved this game. Max depth I went so far was 8.

Under rating threshold (show) ...I never had a chance to use the scythe. I read the wallsign "Elbereth" and my fury took form and killed the Balrog before I even saw it. I love the RNG. When I don't hate it.

Under rating threshold (show) If your minion is wearing the dryad face (or nymph?) and you go to the underworld it can steal Death's Scythe for you. It's a level 20 behemoth.

Under rating threshold (show) A portal to the Underworld lets your minion come back if it dies. Eating runes: Bleed - you take HP damage. Heal - fast HP regen. Light - you light the area for a while. Thorns - ???. Undead - if you are killed shortly after, you gain full HP and your character now looks like a skeleton.

Under rating threshold (show) Rogue feelings: I arrived to downfloor 12, this starts to desesperate my soul, monsters apearing and disapearing, the walls have live, total darkness, no light, He comes.. all the time, I start to lose the faith.. my minion died again, I have fear of what possibly I could see if I keep going... THIS GAME PUTS MY EMOTIONS TO 1000!!! <3333 desesperatly hard, put yourself in the shoes of the rogue, and u will live an incredible fear adventure. 10/5

Under rating threshold (show) This is an astonishingly well made game. The combat can be fast paced and fiercely tactical, and the developer gives you the choice between two combat types. The atmosphere is perfect, and when combined with the stellar soundtrack is well deserving of the horror tag. Superb presentation.

Under rating threshold (show) The game should save just before you go home. I was told I couldn't take items, so I figured there would be more game play later. So I dumped all my items only to find that the last save was before that, so I wasn't able to take my good stuff to the post game.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't think I will ever win this game, but I appreciate that. Too many games are just one path - you keep on it for half an hour and your are done. I keep dying and dying, and come back to die again.

Under rating threshold (show) Some enemies (I think) cast random runes on you. Or the GNR or whatever does it. It turned me into a dreadfully slow goblin! :P Awesome game by the way. One of the most replay worthy games here in quite some time!

Under rating threshold (show) Did I do something wrong? Long before I even knew of the balrog, I had ate a rune of undead and I thought that was why I came back as a skeleton when I died, no explanation was given. So much later after collapsing the dungeon the game says something about me using a rune of time, which I never saw. There were 2 runes I hadn't identified yet before going home. I killed the balrog by having a LOT of haste on my armor and a blessed gun blade. I was able to pin him against a wall with the blessed gun blade. :)

Under rating threshold (show) It would help a lot if you and your minions equipped weapons and armor were always the top items in the menu. Especially for the often times of having to check for recovered stolen gear that's been de-equipped.

Under rating threshold (show) After some more play, i really only have one complaint, but it is about all rogue-likes. There is not enough explanation. What the hell do the runes do? light is self-explanatory, the rest arent. Not knowing when youll meet something that one shots you even if you clear the levels is another pain. And the weapons arent explained at all.

Under rating threshold (show) You can't set a hotkey for the map, but you can set one for a quest? O_o And all it does is go to that quest in the menu but doesn't open the menu. So a map hotkey would require you to open the menu anyways it seems, because the map isn't a window in and of itself as far as I can tell, it's just part of the menu. So, yeah, a separate map that's accessible from a hotkey would be great. :)
