RELEASED: VANILLA DUNGEON
« on: January 05, 2014, 12:45:25 PM »
All right, after years of dicking around, trying to beat Pool of Radiance with one character, and other silliness, I've released my sophomore effort, The Vanilla Dungeon.

You play a group of four mediocre adventurers who appear in a dungeon under mysterious circumstances and have to get out. One of whom is the future star of Library of Segrob, because I think it would be fun to connect all my mods (if I ever make more).

As implied, the game is almost entirely vanilla (a few dungeons were edited by Nologgie using, I think, GEOEDIT).  It is the most old-school effort I could come up with--ten-level dungeon, categorized (almost) entirely by monster difficulty, with (almost!) all of the monsters unedited. It was sort of a found-art idea--what could you do with just in-the-box FRUA? Why would there be ten levels of dungeon on top of each other, and why would you have gnolls and lizardmen on the same level?

It's a little combat-heavy, so feel free to drop the difficulty level. Heck, feel free to do ANYTHING--I can't really stop you from wiping the encounters and using the maps for your mod, can I? ;)

Have fun!

It's not available at the UA File Archive.

Where can we download the game?

Give me a few and I'll have it up. I'm having to update a few things since this is the first upload of 2014.

Sorry, was there something else I was supposed to do? It's been a while since I uploaded a mod...

Nope, you did well--nothing else for you to do. I made my updates locally and then I update them to the archive and the mirror. That's taking a while since some of the other files I'm updating are large...and the server is going slooooooow today.

Btw now checking at the module: game01.zip    A1-4, Aerie of the Slave Lords     by   Ray Dyer at http://frua.rosedragon.org/modulelist/file.php there is error for starting level i think as it is listed as for lv1 but it is for lv 6-8. This should be corrected, i didn't wanted to start a new thread so sorry for OT.

Thanks for calling this out for Aerie of the Slave Lords. I've corrected it.

Methinks I shall have to put lots of hacks and art in for my third effort. ;)

I've actually got an idea, but it's going to take a lot of time...

Yup, that's why a revised, more manageable version will be coming out soon--if I have playtesters to tell me where the rough spots are. ;)

Have you done away with the hard version, is that still available?

I only got one suggestion--didn't seem worth it redoing the whole game for one fight (the opening fight). If any more suggestions are made, I will upload a new version. I need playtesters!

Go ahead and try...please! I can't make a better game if nobody tells me why mine isn't that good ;)
