TBH I kinda wish someone, perhaps me, would revive this in some form. "The Warrens of Ciro the Awesome" starting with our silver haired protagonist dropping into DL1.
It's a cool idea, but I seriously doubt that I have the dedication to sustain something this size.
I had the idea of trying that, but I was only able to reverse-engineer the more basic rules, and have no art talent whatsoever.

The art style was very barebones and simplistic/amateurish, especially for the first two chapters. I don't have the inclination to start over or continue but I'm sure someone will come along with a similar grandiose project eventually.

Hey, were there consistent rules, or did you make up rules as you went along?

The rules were pretty consistent though I added and modified some as it went. I still have the original rules document if you'd like it though.

I read the whole thing and I really liked the simplistic art.

Immortality like that would be even more game breaking than four Aaron's in one place.
You're both so obviously scum that this is a surprisingly difficult decision.

That would be wonderful! I was thinking of adaption it into a Tabletop RPG. Cut out the Influx, and it might work well.

What would've happened if we stuck the soul star into the machine in the 330's when they trying to revive slog?

You know what, I think I'd be up for it.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I'm missing a good chunk of the assets, so they'll have to be recreated, but my memory for this game is still sharp, and I'm fairly sure I can still do these character voices.

Maybe I won't finish, but I might as well give it one more go. I'll have to juggle job-work and other things, so it's a bit of a toss-up, of course.

Would anyone be interest in one more go at finishing the Warrens of Oric the Awesome in 2022?

Because I sure would like to resolve my number one regret in this life, even if it takes some extra years.

I don't know how many people who still remember this game are even around anymore. I only recently started browsing and posting here again.

Some of us at least are still around and interested if you want to get it going again.

I'm speaking as someone who really only ever lurked on this, but I think anybody who was around the lower boards when this game was at its height will remember it.

...Although it may be wise to figure out some sort of soft reboot/easy jumping on point so new (or even returning) people don't feel lost. Or perhaps a brief animated summary. My memories of this are a bit blurry, and I'm not sure I have time to run through 1500 pages of refresher material.

My gut says these boards will undergo a surge of new and returning players whenever Toady/Kitfox release DF Steam Version, which may happen sooner rather than later. Would make for as good a time window as any to relaunch TWoOtA.

I was planning to do a transitional thing to ease people back into it. Don't worry. We wouldn't go right back into the action.

It's only fair for Ciro to also be a little disoriented and displaced after all this time, too.
