Sorry for the lack of updates recently. Work has been brutal and the weather (sunny and VERY warm) has necessitated spending more time outdoors mowing and doing basic yard maintenance.
I did a little testing and found some bugs in various places. I’ve written up some encounter code for combat to have the display tell you things like “You face a raging bear!” or “You face an acidic slime and 2 giant rats!” I encoded pluralizing monsters as a single code so that I could still have unique cases like “wolves” verses “wolf” and the typical “just add an s on the end” case.
Despite being distracted by the idea of writing a more complete version of Donkey Kong for the TI, pushing on with the CRPG work!
