I actually somehow ran across a reference to DoomRL on TVTropes, of all places (I was looking up the tropes in ADOM, because I have too much time). Incidentally, I still play the crap out of classic Doom, via ZDoom- working on beating the notorious Hell Revealed .wad atm.
Since DoomRL I dropped ZDoom. I just love leveling and working to make a better build to much to go back :-P

Probably requires some fine-tuning.  But having hard data in is a good start.
That and we'll need to rework it after the update, anyway.

Oh dang it. Can't be a proper majyck man with lots of cyberware in my body. That ruins a character idea I had... well whatever. We will see.
No, basically the Holy Trinity is: Man, Magic, Machine.

I only play with the tileset so for me it does not matter either way. I do not mind ASCII or tilesets as long as the tiles look good like in DoomRL, otherwise I rather have none at all :-P Do whatever works for you, man.

Just kicked the Butchers ass... Was easier than I though it would be! Mainly because I had the time to check my health, which D1 hardly let me do :-P

And you have to remember that the original Diablo was based on a roguelike game.
Wasn't it based on Moria? I never played that game. Is Moria any good?

BTW, once you've seen the true ASCII face of DoomRL, check this out:,5092.0.html,
Honestly, I love the tilesset that comes with DoomRL. Sure, that makes me a heretic in the eyes of most Roguelike addicts, but its just so well done. Makes me feel like its the early 90's again and I'm back in my parents home office giving Hell a hard time. Crazy thing is that my parents never really had the whole "This is some evil crap"-reaction like many parents of the time. I could leisurely shotgun Imps 'till my heart was content.

I do have to say that the ASCII within regular Doom is absolutly hilarious.

So I am not the only one who ran into DoomRL by accident. I was playing ZDoom at the time when I stumbled on this gem. My OS does not really handle old programs well, so ZDoom was my best option for nostalgia. So looking around on how to make my ZDoom as smooth as possible, I find this link to DoomRL.

I go to the site and see it is infact a roguelike. JOY! I have played nethack for about 12 years, so a new RL might just be what the doctor ordered... and it was. Personally I love rapid fire builds. Never actually finished it yet, though. I tend to make stupid mistakes and die horribly.

Well, what about dropping ammo/medikits/grenades? And may be add terminals to Storage, at least one on every floor? We can restore power - but that is impossible when no terminals at all.
Colt and shotguns are too rare. If it is a balance requirement then corresponding ammo must be rare to. From other side, Pulse rifles too common and can be found even at Civilian-3.
Restoring power in the Storage Tower would indeed be a great option.

1.) It is dependent on your Essence (which is essentially you humanity). You begin with 6 and can't go below 0.1 because than you would not be human anymore. "Cybered" or "chipped" characters are considered excentric, but not especially weird. Personally I am a fan of "Muscle Replacements" and "Wired Reflexes". As a Magician or a Technomancer you want to avoid Cyberware and Bioware as the plague. Magic/Technomancy is linked to your Essence and they have other ways to gain bonusses.
2.) People tend to learn things by SIMs which are chips with the information and they hardwire it into their brain. That being said it is not really weird to have a E-reader function in your Comlink.
3.) Cyberware can be very obvious but does not need to be. Do keep in mind that higher security building will have scanners who can pick up on those things. It is not illegal to be cybered, but corporations keep more of an eye on you if you come into their building cybered to the gills :-P


Disgrace is good! :-D

* Pain : i assume that when under pain the bonus to "skill rating" due to distance is conserved. Pain mostly happening in melee range, it's no wonder many players don't notice it's effects.
The effect can be quite significant. With a pain modifier of 3-5 it takes more shots to take down even a simple drone, where normally a few well-placed rounds will end those bugs. I have once emptied an entire clip (12 rounds) in one of those creeps only to need to reload and fire once more; I had it trained at the time as well. Pain is a big deal.

Started playing this just for kicks. I'm really into AlienRL, which is really scary when playing at night with a whiskey coke and a solitary lightbulb on. But I also immensely enjoyed the Diablo series. So hell (pun totally intended), I gave it a try and now I'm a happy camper. It works well and there is a update on the horizon. Damn you, God Hand! Now I also need to finish this game.
