UPDATE: SET ITEMS !! and similar combo effects

Update 2.7.100 is now live!

It brings:

a) SET ITEMS (such as: new or revamped items that have an extra power effect if worn together)

b) SET SUFFIX / PREFIX: suffix or prefix like "of the moon", "of the stars", "of the sun" that exist randomly on different items. If you wield items with all 3, you complete the CELESTIAL SET and get extra bonus stats. That bonus is displayed as a popup. If you ever need to re-read it again, just remove and equip one of the set items. The bonus in detail is not stated (revealed prematurely) in the item descriptions.

c) MULTI EFFECTS: new item condition 'flint' which is a bit like iron, however if you wear 2+ items with it, you get fire and lightning damage added!

d) and similar effects. stated as golden hint in the item descriptions.

e) beefed up the SPIDERS CHOKER. now improves nature ally result

f) fixed the dwarven bard and increased skill train limit

“An Old-School-RPG with great character development, rewarding exploration, turn-based combat and well designed dungeons and quests. Retro-Fun!”
RPGWatch

“For the price you pay you get an awesome game, tactical and challenging with comedy and replayability. Not only this but the online community for the game is helpful and knowledgeable too. 10/10 cannot put down.”
4.8 – Apple Store reviewer

“Fabulous game. 80s retro, think Ultima III-V. Makes you think not mindlessly gather bits and autokill monsters. More devs need to revisit this genre. Believe me if you remember how to kill Lord British with the canon you should have this game!”

About This Game

DUNGEONS OF CHAOS is a tribute to the 2D turn-based pixelart RPGs of the 80s.

A game where you can create your party of 6 characters with a few clicks, or spend more time creating a customised party with feats unlocked in previous plays. Where exploration is encouraged and rewarded, with no level cap, non-linear side quests and a vast array of items, item properties, shops and enemies.

The game already has over 30000 happy players on other platforms, and most often they mention the likeness to 80s RPGs like Ultima or the goldbox games. It is retro. Your hand will not be held. It does not try to have realistic 3D graphics. It is not multiplayer, and never will be. If you long for the days when you traded your sleep for a chance to direct a party of adventurers through pixelated lands of exploration and battle glory, then you may want to give it a try.

And as all existing players already know, all fans and myself help out with tips and tricks, mostly on the facebook page but also on my blog if you prefer that. I do not provide or encourage having a complete-detail wiki somewhere, as the fan interaction on questions and strategy are a very enjoyable part of the game. So come join our community of DoC addicts and play a game where a troll is still a hairy monster you can kill, where there are no level caps, where you are not confined by a slim storyline path, and where it all starts with fighting rats in a cave/cellar. Fans have usually spent anything upwards of 80 hours playing it.

P.S.: apologies in advance for the puns in the game, but to my defence some were added by fans so if it is a bad joke you are reading on some tombstone or note just pretend it's from a fan and not me. ;-)

P.P.S.: I am very open to fixing bugs or typos. But I mostly use British English, so don't flag non-American English spelling/syntax please.
