The mad god with the help of his dark priests did it again ! Source,
windows and dos(ibm) compiles are available on

This release, as usual, adds or change quite a lot of things, but the
biggest of them is modules.

What is a module ? It is a set of text files and lua scripts that uses the
ToME core engine(T-Engine) to create a new game. It can be seen as
"variants-made-easy" :) The changes can range form some small mods, to a
total overhaul of the game(and I mean, total :).

Modules also remove the need to do various ports for each platforms as
they only use lua scripts and text files. To install a mod you just
uncompress it in the lib/mods directory, the T-Engine will then
automagically(at least on windows & unix) detect it and ask which module
to play.

To support and help module makers I have opened a new site at:

This lets module makers upload their module to the common repository. It
also contains a list of small scripts & other packages implementing new
ideas, or simply helpful stuff.

There is already a handful of modules being developed by various people,
feel free to join :)

The ToME API exported to lua is also being fully documented and shall be
available soon.

To help module makers there is also a new utility being developed: Scribe.
Scribe is a portable(being java program ;) module editor able to
understand various info files format and present them in a nicer way. It
currently supports d_info, p_info, a_info, k_info, e_info, misc.txt, lua
scripts(syntax coloration), and no editors are being worked on(map editor
;). Note that it is far from complete but can still be quite helpful. It
acn be found on

Voila voila, quite a long announcement :)

Have fun!

removed from the character resistances grid -- neil - Reworked 16x16 gfx

- Bump required level and difficulty rating of Minas Anor quest, as the
trees changes have made it just a little harder. -- neil
- The lost temples for god quests now have harder monsters to make the
gain rather more substantial and obvious I hope. Deeper monsters appear
as player clvl increases. -- fearoffours
- Fixed the teleport-level ability of Deathmolds, so they
can teleport out of a dungeon, instead of getting a message saying
there's only air above them. -- WeZ
- A new quest! An ultra ending! "Falling Toward Apotheosis"
After banning Morgoth spirit in the Void, you can pursue him there to
forever end the darkness. But beware, it is more than likely that you
will die. But for the few that succeed, the fame will be great! Note:
you can only do it if you choosed the way of Good and thus destroyed the
One Ring. An evil ultra ending is planned and will come a bit latter.
- Another new quest! An old mage in Minas Anor needs help, too. -- neil -
Bree house is not available from start anymore, you have to get it
as a reward from the thieves quest

neil - Boomerangs now have just a 1% chance to break, have their chance to
improved by Boomerang-mastery, get sold in shops, and are a bit less
rare -- neil

Player changes:
- Boulder throwing skill :) For Ents .. Don't get used to it as I don't
if I'll let it in
- Added dynamic subrace. This means that "things" in the game can somewhat
change your subrace. This is used by the 3 new Vampire corruptions,
which when combined will permanently turn you into a full blown Vampire.
The Vampire subrace has been removed, it might come back as a template
for the corruptions, or not. All others undead subrace will have the
same fate. This means that soon you'll be able to turn into an undead
rather than start as one. The penalties will be tweaked too so we don't
end up with every char being an undead.
- p_info.txt: Updated, compacted history-chart. Trolls, Orcs, Elves with
entries, some other small changes. Deleted the unused races --
- Extra HP bonus(from quest, melkor, ...) is applied before sorcery
penality - Bard class is back(was called Harper before) with a new Music
Instruments carries the spells, and they work a bit like Psi foci in
psiband. An instrument (+2) can only play songs that are marked (I) or
(II) not (III) or (IV)
- Mana is now function of the Magic skill and either INT or WIS, whichever
is higher
- Probability travel level teleport ability & teleport level spells
wont work in some dungeon
- Dwarves get a bonus to axe mastery, as they rightfully should - All
mages start with 0.1 less mod to Sorcery. Specialists dont have sorcery.
Runecrafters dont iether, nor Alchemists. Thaumaturgists do. Specialists
also get a bit better Spell-power
- The adventurer quest skill reward will now only provide a modifier of
if you dont have the skill, but if you have it it will improve the
modifier by 0.1 if it is below 0.5
- Trolls cannot get the troll blood corruption - At Monster lore skill
level 12 one can turn a pet in a loyal companion.
Note that you are limited in companion number
- Reduced Necromancy spell failure damage - Skill multipliers of Rogues
and Assassins are higher now. -- neil - Some skills have more chances to
be taugth than others by fumblefinger - Melkor Curse spell autocast chance
formula changed - Spellbinder spell will reveal more info about itself
when cast while
already active
- Increase Mage's Weaponmastery Multiplier by 0.1 -- neil - Experimentally
double Barehanded Combat martial arts damage dice
to make Monks more attractive -- neil
- One can now steal from more places -- neil - Shots now pierce when they
used to ricochet in random directions -- neil - Piercing shots are now
togglable -- neil - If you play something experimental, it now shows up in
the character
dump. Alchemists and Death Molds are marked as such for now -- neil
- Necromantic magic got a new spell: Necromantic Teeth - Abilities.
Abilities are like skills, but are booleans. That is
you either know them or not, there is no scale. One can learn abilities
by spending skill points in the abilitie screen(press 'N'). Abilities
can have prerequisites to be meet before one can learn them. (Like some
can need a stat level, a skill level, ...) Some classes get abilities
for free at certain level. Like warriors will get Spread-blows ability
at level 25 for free(even if they dont actually meet the prereqs).
- All classes now get 4 max blows. But there abilities that can increase
the max. Warriors gets them for free at birth, and other classes also
get some so they are not less powerful than before the change. This will
however help people create warrior-mages for example.
- New skill: Geomancy, works in combinaison with the 4 elemental skills
to produce various effects from the raw elements around teh caster
(grass, sand, ...). Elementalists becomes Geomancers now. Thanks to
Fubar Obfusco for the detailed idea
- Runecraft is not gainable from fumblefingers until it is reworked - Far
reaching attack ability. When using a long polearm you can attack monsters
1 or even 2 grids away(at the cost of a reduced number of blows) Idea
taken from Adamant
- Trapping is now an ability instead of a skill. Rogues, but not
start with it -- neil
- Undead Form is now an ability
- Thaumaturgy spell levels now range from 1-50 instead of 1-100, so now
one won't get spells with impossible failure rates, as suggested by
Jules Bean -- neil

essence spoiler, new help file created -- masmarangio - Added a
(conservative and preliminary) port to OS X + gcc + makefile.
The four *.icns files are faithful conversions of the traditional
Angband icons that have long been used by Mac ports, even before Ben.
makefile.std itself is not updated. Please read comments in main-crb.c.
-- pelpel
- Module support. It means that people can write ToME "modules" which will
go in lib/mods and contain "variants" that use the same game engine but
different lib/foo files. The module selection screen only appears when

allows to bypass module selection

"tome -- -w" if you don't like to see horrible glitches... This is not

it too, if you prefer menu command -- pelpel

Taken from the latest [V] (Win port only there), minus the use of

without confirming its completion. Wrote an alternative implementation
that holds data until a channel it is played is reused, to avoid using

memory for a long time, I reduced number of channels used to 4 in
Classic and 8 for Carbon -- pelpel

allowed free use of body spells without failure
- Possibly the relic in the god quest couldn't have been generated.
Wasn't me honest guv. -- fearoffours
- Some menus exits when 'e' was hit on some comapilation.
Note: '\e' for escape is compiler dependant extension so do not use it.
Thanks kobayasi for fix. -- Kusunose

the Known Object list. Thanks kobayasi for fix. -- Kusunose

Black Breath -- neil
- Non-enemy monsters now won't hold up victory in the Spiders and Library

Feanorian Lanterns, and Dwarven Lanterns of Fading
