This is my DROD RPG! I have worked on it for a long time, and it is perfect. It is complete, fun to play, and interesting, not repetitive or boring. There is no required 'finish' level or money, but once you have played most of the hold, you can choose to finish, or play those last few quests and rack up some more money. Thanks to my many testers! Have fun!

Great news! Been looking forward to this for ages :)

Lots of jobs and adventures to complete whilst unlocking areas and maintaining your house. Time for another runthrough :D

Urgh... how do you get the last red crystal? I presume it involves a key, which I'm presuming is the one that the guy that buys your blue crystals has... but how to get it? I think it involves being a merchant, but I can't find the merchant recruiter...

EDIT: Nevermind. I found him. But I still can't figure out how to get the last red crystal.

No, no, no, getting the last red gem is easier than that!

To get things started, here's my score at the end of my HA testing:

3,957,120

This is probably not very high as I bought everything in testing capacity, but I'm playing through again. Let's see if we can work out the final score calculation :)

Speed sword is suffecient, given good luck. Try waiting for different amounts of turns between each hit. You need one hit to be 3,3 and the other to be at least 2,2, doing 10 damage in 2 turns.

The guy repeatedly giving you the J-Sword is intentional - he has an infinite supply of them and you can get the J-Sword back if you lost it by buying a new weapon.

As for your other bug, not sure how that happened. :/

I was playing through again trying to optimise the final score (I HA'd it a while back) but that will take a while as I need to work out a few things regarding the order of things so I'll vote now.

10/10 for a revolutionary game. I realise I've voted 10 on a couple of holds before but, from now on, "full marks" has just been pushed higher.

Cheers! :)

This Hold is awesome.

I've only been playing it for day or so, and I love it. It's kinda what I was aiming for with Utopolis Life but failed to get anywhere near due to my newbiness.

Would it be possible to create custom levels with this engine?

Can anyone confirm that it's possible to finish this hold without using any health potions?

I chose to be a robber and the only quests I have are:
1. Steal from the bank: I found a hidden room in the bank but some guy wants me to give him money for the treasure. I'm assuming I have to get past him
2. Get past all the goblins to save the princess: The goblins are tough. Should I kill some until I think I should heal and go back for more? Or should I fight goblins in the caverns to get points for dexterity to get past the guards.
Any other place I can get quests at this point?
Btw, awesome hold. RPGs are my favorite. Anyone played Paper Mario: TTYD?

You can change jobs at any point. Only problem is you won't be able to go back to be a thief.

This may have changed (I haven't tested the latest version), but I believe that's the idea. My advice would be to do as many missions as a thief as possible and then become a merchant or wizard...

No, that's important for later, but not how you rob the bank.

Yay! I'm glad everyone likes this RPG. Lemme tell you, it took a while!

Just incase no one realized, mastering the hold gives you access to cheats, and you can look at the scripting if you like.

6,832,800... So, uh, what *is* the maximum possible score? I know there was at least one battle I didn't win and couldn't go back for, and I fled from one battle...

It's high above 8 000 000 at least :glasses (I think it's only based on how much money you have, I managed to lower my score pretty badly by buying some new skill points...)

Edit: It's also based on how many health potions you have apparently... I got over 35 000 000 once I bought a couple of more health potions :)

Oops. The score doesn't seem to work the best it could. :(

I've tried, and can't seem to kill it... I'm level 10, using J-Sword with 2 Renown, I have the Roach Bane but no Health Potions. Do I have a hope?

Note that you can (with good timing) defeat the Big Roach with the Mace and the Roach Bane.

I've got my game into a very buggy state. As soon as I start combat the lower five health of my enemy immediately disappear. For things like goblins and roach queens, they die instantly without me taking a single step. (Sure makes the hunting grounds go fast!) But for things like super-roach in the caverns, they're now immortal. I didn't do anything weird that I can think of that would have gotten me into this state, but you know your own coding, so maybe you can figure it out from the bug report. I'm playing as a wizard with a staff, if that matters.
