And done! Here is hoping that is is (a) fun, (b) bug-free, and (c) the start of good things to come. I had to skip feature that I had originally planned, and the game balance may need work. Chatting with Darren Grey online I realized the name “Blood Arbiter” did not convey the “gimmick” which is an attempt to do intelligent 1v1 fights. Hence the name change to “Equal in Death”. Other gimmicks are an attempt at a social meta-game, although a lot of tweaking went into that at the last minute so time will show how successful it is. I am still pretty excited about it, though, and as this is my first 7DRL I declare it a success. Lets celebrate!
Here is the background image that I am including in the stripped down version of T-Engine:
Oh, you want to actually play it? Well you can grab a tarball of the module directory from this link. If you go this route you will need to download ToME from te4.org and drop the “blood-arbiter” directory into the “tome/game/modules” directory. That isn’t ideal, so I am in the process of putting together self-contained downloads. Any idea where I can host them?
EDIT2: Oh, and some basic help. You can move around with either the mouse or keys, and hitting “?” will bring up a pop-up with some other key bindings. Cheers!
