Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.3.0 aka "Dust to Dust" is released!

My minions, I am happy and pround to give you Tales of Maj'Eyal 1.3.0 ! See http://te4.org/

Enjoy and have fun in Eyal!

New content AKA: that's awesome:
  • Temporal Warden and Paradox Mage classes completely reworked. Check them out immediately!
  • Chronomancy spells can no longer fail or backfire (anomalies still occur).
  • Spellpower for Chronomancy spells is -50% at 0 Paradox to +50% at 600 Paradox.
  • Above 600 Paradox (modified by your Willpower), major anomalies will occur. Paradox bar now reflects how close you are to that threshold.
  • A new race was revealed, a fruit of a long-standing war. Check what contemporary documents in the old halfling ruins might say.
  • Slasul is no longer a pushover. That naga got gainz! Of course Ukllmswwik matches his performance.
  • Added a bunch of new unlockable splash screens.
  • Several sweet new icons for your talents.
  • Wyrmic talents are reorganized and provide passive benefits. It's a HUGE buff!
  • Angolwen sports a new fountain.

UI changes AKA: My stuff is in all the wrong places:
  • Several graphical effects now update more frequently.
  • Several graphical effects are now sweet and awesome.
  • Automatic Talent Use will now refuse to use talents which cooldown is lower than their use time, so you don't lock yourself out.
  • Tiles will flip depending on where they last bumped. All hail the sprite flip!
  • New UI option to display a grid over the map.
  • Addon list now shows addon version.
  • "Inspect creature" now displays creature's talents by categories.
  • More artifacts are shown up on player doll. Do brag before those custom tile users!
  • Game options are directly accessible from main menu now.
  • Dragging hotkey icons shows the place they'll end up on. If the hotkey would be dropped, it's clearly visible now.
  • ASCII mode will not show symbols upon symbols, only the top is seen (does not affect ASCII with background mode)
  • Better artifact power use descriptions
  • New gameplay option to auto-validate the default target; thus requiring only one keypress to fire a talent
  • Highlighted a few special grids for escorts and slime tunnels.
  • Rare mindstars now have description hints for their sets.

New mechanics AKA: I didn't know they changed it:
  • Some talents have been assigned "fixed cooldowns". That means they're immune to cooldown reduction and some cooldown-reducing effects.
  • Talents have been assigned speed (which you can override in addons). Acceptable speeds include "combat" (unarmed), "archery", "weapon", "mainhand", "offhand", "spell", "summon", "mind", "movement", and "standard" (1 turn).
  • Player rank (elite) and insteadeath immunity is universal across all game modes now. Hard game modes weren't being made any harder by fractional stat points.
  • Forced starting zones no longer have rare+ rank enemies.
  • Levelup dialog now shows error messages as flyers above Category points, instead of modal dialogs.
  • Items modified with talents can now be placed in Items Vault, but will lose their modified properties.
  • Reload is no longer granted to anyone. You'll still have it if you had it. You still won't use it ever!
  • Unstoppable is no longer Timeless. Neither is Draconic Will. They both are "other" effects which means that they cannot be stripped or affected.
  • Exploration mode now allows full respec anywhere. And I do mean FULL respec, with no puny "3/4 points" limitation.
  • Run/Rest now spots projectiles flying your way (but not your own, so beware!)
  • Run/Rest also stops if you saw someone for the fraction of time as they escape your field of vision at the end of your turn.
  • AI now only catches a glimpse of you through stealth, making them look in your general direction, not get a lock-on. This helps a bit.
  • Detrimental traps now have flat 5% chance to not trigger if you're bad at disarming them.
  • Dream Altar in a certain caldera no longer can kill you or do anything bad to you.
  • Waking up from a bad dream makes you lose life over several turns, not instantly.
  • On that note, Sleep no longer causes you to skip turns, yet you still cannot use anything but instant talents.
  • You can no longer wield an item by replacing another item that provided necessary requirements for it.
  • Sandworm Queen will now seek you out tirelessly if you are late to her lunch.
  • Tooltip now have a significant delay on up/down scrolling. Sidebars in levelup screen, prodigy screen, and birth screen now bounce as tooltips do.
  • Arcane Destruction (Arcane Blades) now actually scales and is not effectively a 1-point talent.
  • Shade of Kor'Pul got some cover around it. Now you can retreat when you get frozen! Well, after you get frozen. If you're still alive.
  • Shield Runes are now material level 2, down from 3.
  • You are now correctly afflicted with Cursed Aura as long as you have Unnatural Body, without having to be Cursed or Doomed.
  • Several glove egos have got disarm immunity on them. Keep that grip tight!
  • Phase Door runes now additionally grant you buffs "on teleport" from your equipment (adding to its own bonuses).
  • Debuffs to your powers can now not only cancel buffs out, but bring them below your baseline stats.
  • Rest should wait for air if you're able to catch a breath. It also waits for detrimental effects' durations and item cooldowns.
  • Summons now count their turns down once per game turn, not their own turn. Bloated oozes are more short-lived now, but no one liked them anyway.
  • You can now teleport within vaults and out of vaults, just not change your current vault by teleporting.
  • Lite "damage" now reduces the unlit value of grids with darkness if it can't remove them.
  • Nerfed Aeryn, buffed Argoniel. Now Argoniel can eventually kill Aeryn if left completely alone.
  • Elandar no longer ignores irresistible sun since Argoniel no longer has it
  • The Crystal Focus can now be applied to shields (updates the special_combat fields appropriately).
  • Out of Phase/Time Shield effect reductions can no longer stack to 100% and stack inverse-multiplicatively (50% + 50% = 75%).
  • Reduced the number of mental effects the Wintertide Phial will remove.
  • Penitence cures a more reasonable (fewer) number of diseases.
  • Cursed Sentry now remembers your weapon choice (which you can alter with a separate talent), the object is automatically picked up, but it's got a power level limitation now. Also it levels up them stats and uses better ammo.
  • Shop selling now rounds the whole stack price to 1 cent, rather than rounding up each object's price individually to 10 cents. Alchemists gems, no longer as shiny.

And more, see the full changelog there: http://te4.org/blogs/darkgod/2015/03/news/tales-majeyal-130-aka-dust-dust-released

Have fun in Eyal!

Ты храбрый рыцарь. Заходишь в подземелье, видишь босса на 10 уровней выше тебя. Понимаешь, что нужно бежать, но он тебя уже заметил. Ты труп, всё заново.

Ты кровожадный варвар. Заходишь в пещеру. Тебя окружили враги, но ты жирный, у тебя 1000 hp. После первого хода у тебя остаётся 950, а после второго 900. У тебя в запасе лечение, регенерация и неуязвимость на 7 ходов. Аррр, сейчас ты их всех замочишь! На третьем ходу тебя убивают. Всё заново.

Ты мудрый маг. Открываешь первую дверь в стартовой локации...Ты труп, всё заново.

Ты начинаешь в читерском режиме Exploration, появляясь после смерти в том же месте, где сдох. Пока доходишь до последней локации, ты дохнешь 1247 раз. И ещё столько же раз в ней.

Что же такое Tales of Maj'Eyal?

- Это когда ты играешь уже целых пять часов, а из 1386 ачивок выбил одну, за прохождение туториала;
- Когда ты открываешь лист своего персонажа, а там 10 видов резистов и столько же видов сопротивлений к эффектам, три вида спасбросков, параметры Armor, Armor Hardiness и Defense, и это вообще разное;
- Вышеперечисленные параметры относятся к вкладке Defense, а есть ещё три другие вкладки;
- В процессе зачистки пещеры ты нашёл пятьдесят новых топоров, все разные. Сиди теперь полчаса выбирай какой надеть;
- Тебе западло читать килотонны английского текста и ты соглашаешься со всеми не читая. Внезапно бац и ты почётный охотник на магов и никакой магический шмот на тебя больше не одевается;
- Во время боя на тебя навешивают 10 отрицательных эффектов, а ты навешиваешь на себя ещё 15 положительных, и стоишь весь в значках как ёлка, обколдованный;
- У тебя 80% защита от магии тьмы а тебя убивают магией тьмы. Как же так? А потому что Resistance Penetration.

Итог: Это развлечение не про "щас поставлю, полчасика поиграю". Это конкретно замороченное времяпровождение, поиграл как на работу сходил. Сходу вообще нихрена не понятно. Читай гайды, экспериментируй, тогда что-то станет получаться. Порог вхождения весьма высок. Именно поэтому будет очень интересно играть, если научишься.

Умирать и начинать сначала, вот всё что предстоит в этой игре. Но несмотря на это процесс крайне увлекателен, т.к. локации, враги и предметы генерируются рандомно, а персонажей которыми вы можете поиграть здесь немало. Способности каждого класса уникальны. Прокачка умений и пошаговые тактические бои, сделаны на высоте. Богатая история мира. Много всяких разблокируемых функций, которые становятся доступны после определенных успехов в игре, например игра за нежить или некроманта... Вобщем вкратце, игра сделана с душой, всё крайне грамотно продумано. 10 из 10.

Лок`Тар Огар!
Приобрел эту игру по 75%-ной скидке. Вместе с единственным DLC под названием Ashes of Urh`Rok.
Причиной моего приобретения сего рогалика стал просмотр видеорецензии на него от известного Youtube-летсплейщика. Я заинтересовался и зашел на страницу этой игры в Steam Store. Отзывы были крайне положительные. Все хвалили эту игру за то, что она является идеальным рогаликом (по большей части, из-за глубокой стратегической составляющей), а также за колоссальное количество игровых достижений. Эти две причины и подтолкнули меня на покупку игры и DLC.
Но, запустив игру, я был напуган. Напуган огромным количеством английского текста. Он был везде и всюду. Главное меню - это тонна английского текста. Настройки игры - это тонна английского текста. Создание персонажа - это тонна английского текста. Прокачка скиллов - это тонна английского текста. Личный инвентарь - это... можно дальше не продолжать. Да, размер шрифта и цвет текста могут немного помочь. Но, в-целом, среднестатистический игрок будет попросту неподготовлен к этой игре. Даже если представить, что вся игра будет на его родном языке.
В-общем, оценки я этой игре ставить не буду. Я попросту в нее еще не поиграл. И вряд ли в ближайшее время запущу ее. Ведь для того, чтобы играть в Tales of Maj`Eyal на приличном уровне, нужно уделить ей как минимум несколько дней своего личного времени - а). на то, чтобы выучить правила и особенности игры (что при тоннах английского текста является тем еще испытанием); б). на то, чтобы выучить непосредственно сам английский язык. Только после этого можно играть в нее и получать от игры удовольствие. А до того ваш мозг будет пахать как каторжник, впитывая в себя гигабайты новой и тяжело-удобовариваемой информации.
P.S.: И все-таки этой игре всерьез требуется локализация. Хотя бы сделанная фанатами. А то так она и пролежит в моей библиотеке целехонькой и нетронутой.

I don't play rogue-likes.

That was my starting point with ToME(4), aka Tales of Maj'Eyal. I'm not really a fan of the genre, though I am a fan of tactical RPGs. It was only after some interesting comments on another game forum (Grim Dawn, great game, look it up) that I decided to give ToME a try.

Unlike some other rogue-likes, ToME gives you the option to play softcore. There are varying difficulty levels in addition to different degrees of 'rogue-like-ness' (multiple lives; from 1 to infinite). The classes vary from basic and simple (Bulwark, Rogue, Archmage, etc) to surprisingly unique (Mindslayer, Oozemancer, Solipsist, etc). The unlock system can be a pain, but it does encourage you to progress through the game, explore and play various archetypes.

The lore is great; the world has been excellently crafted (imo). While it doesn't read like a AAA novel, the depth of the backstory is pretty astonishing considering it's been done primarily by one man (props Darkgod).

When it comes to the gameplay, everything is surprisingly newbie-friendly (for a rogue-like). The UI is simple and easy, the controls are variable (keyboard and/or mouse, re-bindable) and the overly-complex item usage often found in the genre has been notably streamlined.

The graphics are solid. Now, take that with a grain of salt; this is a 2d game of tiles and sprites. If you're anticipating something like Dragon Age, you're going to be disappointed. I know that I was unpleasantly surprised. That being said, it has definitely grown on me and it certainly gives enough information on what's happening.

All that being said, this IS a roguelike. You WILL walk around a corner/open a door/open a chest and get exploded. Careful, cautious play is highly encouraged.

Overall, if you find yourself wanting to try out a roguelike but finding they are a little too 'hardcore' for you, give ToME a try. It's the only roguelike that I have found myself returning to, time after time.

[posted this initially on the 3rd but reviews were broken at that time.]

I'll start this by telling you that I've been playing TOME since it was Tales of Middle Earth. That's right, originally it was based on Tolkien's work and was an offshoot of a long lineage of games directly related to Rogue, via Moria and then Angband. There was a middle variant in there at some point called Pernband.

Some back story:
At some point DarkGod (the main dev) decided to rewrite the client because the old angband client was full of spaghetti code and it became untenable. So came t-engine. Tome was then written as a module of T-engine (all made by DarkGod for no $$ I might add.)

In Tome 3 there were Jedi!!! and other fun ideas but it was chaotic. Tome 3 was a mess, (Tome 4 was much cleaner.) But it was still pretty opaque as Roguelikes go. I would tinker with it, have fun with lost souls etc and then get bored. So I went the way of many players got involved in other games only came back periodically when I got a yen for playing with Lightsabers again. At some point, I noticed Tome 4 was progressing and downloaded and everything was different.

Gone were most of the touches of the Angband and Tolkien worlds. You can still see a few here and there but TOME had become Tales Of Maj Eyal with an original story and a total reworking of the graphics and mechanics. On and off Ive done some beta testing (though my forums account from then was deleted more than once so I guess being inactive on the forums is a good way to get culled.)

At some point I managed a couple of end games. I won once and once I sacrificed my guy (I still don't know why that doesn't count as a win...)

Every time I came back more and more stuff was added and then I saw that they had finally made the leap to Steam. I wanted to buy it immediately because I believe in the game and the devs and why not support them? But I was reticent with all the other games I have and also had to wait for money to pay for it anyway.

I probably should not have waited but I did and when I did finally get the steam version I was not disappointed with either the basic game or the DLC (which I had no previous knowledge of.)

Divergent note that tangentially relates to this review:
Bob Dylan has said on songwriting that if you can't change a song, if you can't mess with the words or change the arrangements it is dead and you should bury it. That is a paraphrase because I don't have the exact quote on hand. But this is how I feel about games. TOME is a living game, always changing.

Many pay to play games are not. They merely make some stuff they took out initially available for DLCs when the wells run dry. TOME is not like those games. TOME is developed by a caring group of dedicated players and programmers who are making an epic play experience.

Yes epic. You have a ton of races and classes which unlock as you play. Sometimes the unlock is just something you were going to do anyway but sometimes in true RPG fashion you have to investigate and figure out some puzzle or quest to get the unlock you want. And you can unlock them in something like 9 different modes. The game offers 50 levels of experience in whatever build combo you choose. As you learn more about classes and races you find yourself getting deeper into the decision making process and you realize you have many more choices than you will quickly be able to play with. This could take a long time. As is without any further changes. And the game changes from game to game so you may not always get an event or area you thought you might. And different play styles create vastly different approaches and in-game storylines.

There was a lot of discussion when Maj'Eyal became the world of the game about how terribly difficult the game was (is) so now there are multiple modes for discovering the game. The most rewarding depends on your personality and proclivities as a gamer. You can play with Easy and Exploration and virtually never risk death, or you can unlock, insanity and madness modes and play only in true Roguelike fashion (1 life, though there are items you can find to hedge that bet.) Or you could play as I do on Normal with Adventurous. To each player their own. This is an innovation I wish more devs would think about. Multiple play modes for multiple types of players means more fun for everyone.

The game has a few pit falls. It is deep so it is not hard to get into trouble if you are tired, hungry or bored. Don't do that. Play when you are fresh and excited and keep it that way. You won't complete it in a day. (The main quest line takes a minimum of 10 hours I think if you skip everything else and I highly recomend you don't do that.)

You may also find that the game lore is hard to penetrate. This is partially due to writing style and partially because who wants to read so much of it? Yes you should read the lore the first time you encounter it at the very least. You may or may not glean valuable clues from it but if you need to you can go back to it later. Once you have unlocked certain features you will be able to access ALL of the lore you've ever seen as a player.

You may notice that I am not giving a lot of specifics here because part of the fun of this game is playing it unspoiled. You can of course look stuff up or ask for spoilers if you aren't into all that.

I will say the sound effects while fairly professional are not my cup of tea. I am not really a game sounds kind of player though. I typically turn sound off in games I play and I only checked them out in TOME out of curiousity. You might find them entertaining. Apparently, also there is music. Something I didn't check out. (I am an older guy with a very staid taste in music. If it isn't Classic Rock. Folk, Blues or Soul from the 60s-70s then it probably isn't on my mp3 player. Though I do enjoy more varied styles, when I am gaming that's mainly what I listen to.)

I write all this mainly to enthuse about how much I am enjoying playing TOME again and want you to know it is worth every penny to buy it on steam. The community addons alone make the game extremely customizable.

A very traditional hard-as-balls roguelike. What sets this apart from other genrecompetitors like DCSS or nethack is the very accessible interface and overall decent presentation with a very good default tileset (that can be swapped out, if you feel like it).

Make no mistake, I have barely scratched the surface of what this game holds. But there is an insame amount of stuff in this, half a dozen races, several "sub"races, classes with subclasses and almost all of them come with a unique opening. Very impressive stuff. And everytime I die, even if its in the early stages due to some unfair RNG, I still keep rerolling thanks to the massive amounts of content, every run is different and you will always find another titbit of lore or a new quest.

Its hard to not miss the references to other fantasy worlds. This used to be set in the Tolkien universe, but for the sake of it being a commercial product, all of the connections had to be removed. Still it holds an interesting world with unique characters and well-written lore.

If you're into roguelikes, ToME is almost a mustplay. It takes a lot of time to get used to its "rogueiness" and I recommend changing some of the horrible default keybindings, but once you get out of that beginnerslump, you don't want to stop playing.

With over 1350, this certainly is the game with the most achievements I've ever played.

The only things I can say about this game is "This!" and proceed to rub it into your face if you even mutter the term "roguelike" and go as far as to say that this game is "too cheap for it's content". I may not be able to be a monthly donator, but hot digidy am I going to buy every single expansion as soon as they pop up.

Tales of Maj'Eyal is - albeit a tiny bit linear - a sub-randomly-generated roguelike adventure that relies more on tactics and availible active skills than any other roguelike game I've played this far (if we don't take keyboard-mashing MMOs such as WoW, EVE and others).

The character progression offers vast customization and has decent impact on your playing style, and that's if you only take one single class into consideration, and there are maaaany various classes (which you have to unlock by playing out certain in-game events such as defeating bosses, gathering lore, completing sidequests or just as rewards for progression). The fact that you have so many options in such a (relatively) linear roguelike gives plenty of replayability, an I'm not even talking about unlockable difficulties and mods that add more challenge, randomness and options. Yes, this game has many, many mods.

If you like roguelikes, difficult games in general and good character progression, get this game!

This is it.

This is, in my opinion, the best roguelike on the market. ToME is an incredibly deep and strategic RPG/roguelike which takes place in an insanely lore-rich world of classic high fantasy.

The game is strategic in that time moves in "turns", meaning time ceases to move between actions or movements. This allows you to carefully plan each action, rather than requiring twitch reflexes. If you want fast paced action, look elsewhere. Animation is minimal, yet the graphics are extemely charming, and convey quite clearly everything that is happening.

Character creation is rich, deep, and super flexible, albeit extremely complex. I've played the same class a million times, but the result is always different depending on how I lay out the stats and skill points, which is probably my favorite part. I am constantly finding fun and oddball builds which get a million times farther than I expect. If you like making characters for tabletop rpgs you'll love this ♥♥♥♥.

The difficulty is pretty brutal, but it always feels fair. There are ways to turn this down for chickens, or up farther for masochists and vets. As you play, you get better at making characters and becoming better at survival. But there are a TON of things to unlock too. There are different classes, races, and starting items to unlock in addition to "campaigns", which are essentially different game modes. If you get bored of adventuring around the continent, turn on endless dungeon mode. Tired of that? Arena mode is a blast too.

Basically, this game is insanely fun, super challenging (and therefore rewarding), and the world is written with a very tasteful degree of seriousness. Humor can be found in dialogue but it is subtle and never breaks the immersion (no memes thank the lord.)

If you enjoy roguelikes and don't have this game, do yourself a favor and cop it! If you like it, go get that dlc too. My best character so far has been a halfling doombringer. if that doesnt convince you I dont know wat will

1370 Achievement. I cannot believe my eyes when i saw that. That's an insane amount of work needed to get all that.

Yes i have tested out the game and Yes It's great.

It remind me of 20+ years ago when i roll the first dice with my friends in school for old school DND and Realm of Despire TXT base game that i use to play on my 486.

Fan of old day DND is in for a treat for this game.
It may not have graphics but it's one that you will enjoy greatly.

Just one question to the developer though. Have you calculated how many estimated hour needed to get all that Achievments? Is it even possible?

Once again. Recommend to all old school RPG fans. You won't be disappointed.

I hate roguelikes. I like difficult games but roguelikes are the antithesis of fun to me. I hate losing my progress, I hate not being able to save scum, I hate dying and losing the feeling of satisfaction just when my character is starting to get somewhere. That being said, I am in love with Tales of Maj'Eyal. It's (shockingly) a roguelike turn-based RPG with varying levels of roguelikeness. For example, when I die - and I die a lot - I choose to start over at level 1 with the same character rather than make an entirely new one every time.

At first glance it looks like some college kid's freshman project, but the UI is clean and has all the information you need without seeming overwhelming. The writing is often hilarious and the lore is deep and engaging. Character sheets, stats, and numbers make me gibber and hyperventilate, so if that's your thing prepare to pore over your character until your eyes bleed. The world has a surprising amount of depth with many races and political/social dynamics between them. At 7 bucks it's really a no-brainer if you like RPGs or turn-based combat; it's definitely one of the best games I'd played in the genre.

Pretty good dungeon grinder. Though the graphics are on the crude side. The character mechanics are rather good. I'd use a coupon, but it's worth buying.

i dont go out of my way to post reviews unless a game is really bad or they stole my money, but im going out of my way to recommend this game to support the devs and this 'genre' of crpgs if you could call it that.

my friend that i play dominions 4 with told me about it and how it used to be tales of middle earth. im a big fan of neverwinter nights 1, which is probably my favorite game of all time next to deus ex, so i thought i'd check this out.

i had never played an ASCII style rpg and that threw me off at first. i was like 'wtf is this' because i was ignorant and i didnt understand. i died over and over before even getting to the damned troll king or out of the first area, but with every new character i made i learned a little more. i slowly figured out the stat system, how the mechanics work together to create synergy, how to kill and stay alive, when to fight and when to run, how to avoid pitfalls and confidence traps. eventually i grew strong enough to go out into the world of maj eyal. being someone who cares a lot about lore i read every scrap of paper, i read the inscriptions on the statues of the king and queen in the capital city and learned about the weird oppressive history of the place. it blew my mind.

although its something thats off the beaten track - dont be scared. this is a diamond of a game if you like dungeons and dragons or crpgs in general. difficult, deep, satisfying. i would highly recommend this game. it is one of the best crpgs i have ever played.
