So I was playing Armok chapter 1...
« on: July 25, 2011, 03:31:34 am »

And I loved the magic system in there. I sure hope the randomly generated magic in later versions of DF could take forms similar to that. Exploding creatures hearts, teleporting creatures hearts to places they shouldn't be, petrifying creature's hearts...

Or you could do that all to the brain for more effective death. And knowing the NPC battle AI coding, I wouldn't doubt they would take advantage of that.

Yeah, the magic system is pretty much the only thing to toy with in Armok 1, IMO. I didn't really understand why I died until I discovered I was teleporting my own spine into my enemies' body as a primary way of attack.
It was an unfortunate experiment.

Freaking love the magic system.
I teleported some guy's hand away so he would drop his bow, tore his spine, teleported his lungs out, and beat him to death with my bow.

Do, good sir, do.

Here's a link to the global armok website and one to the download page.
I couldn't find a link to any wiki of any sort, which is a pity as it could've been very useful.

EDIT: Ninja'd >_<

Since the original forum about the first game is locked, would anyone mind telling me how the heck do I get a sharp thing?

If I remember right, you can make swords out of trees and stuff. In all honesty, the game is nowhere near complete enough to be fun, and is kinda abandoned.

At one time I didn't know how to cancel casting after picking a target.  The primary reason I would want to cancel casting was often that I was accidentally targeting myself.

Cue a leaf tail lizardman often saying "Oh fuck, I accidentally targeted myself.  Do I have any non vital bits left?"  then his foot spontaneously explodes.  And he bleeds to death.
