Paper Dungeons Crawler [0.18] The Bestiary!

We are bringing to you the Bestiary! Now the monsters you kill have a chance to drop a monster card. This card will permanently add a new entry into the Bestiary. The monster compendium list all the statistics of encountered monsters, their abilities and weakness, more information on their ecology will be added later.

  • The Bestiary, and 89 monster cards to collect. Grab them all to complete the [Mob Hunter] achievement.

  • You can now spend only a part of your skill points in the Skill window.

  • Mobs still visible after loading a game on the first game turn.
  • Wrong attack name shown for the zone effects (FireWall, DarkZone, Poison Cloud, IceStorm).
  • Mage Runes with wrong information on the character creation window.
  • Item test requirements wrongly calculated when picking a new item.
  • Typo corrected on the Introduction text.

Paper Dungeons Crawler [0.16] Skills & Items statistic requirement.

Another important patch: pieces of equipment now have a statistic requirement, so they can't be equipped if you don't meet this requirement.

This doesn't mean that a Magician with low strength can't wear any heavy armor. You can mitigate this with our new Skill system.

We're introducing 12 Skills for your character that can be improved with Skill points! You hero will now gain 1 new skill point per level, that you can choose to spend on one of those Skills. These skills can lower a specific statistic requirement, or raise your resistances, or even raise your combat abilities.

Game Balance:

  • Pieces of equipment now have a statistic requirement on STR, DEX, INT or WIS.
  • New Skill system, with 1 points per level to distribute. The 12 skills are: Athletics / Archery / Logic / Piety / Herbalism / Arcanism / Alchemy / Vitality / Marksmanship / Soldiering / Luck / Acrobatics.

UI improvements:

  • Added a new tab for the Skill system.
  • Icon alert when a new Skill point is available to distribute.

Fixed bugs:

  • Monsters can't be hit when placed on a trap or a zone effect.
  • Rooms too close to the map limit, without enclosing walls.
  • Many typos on the vendor and buff descriptions.
  • YES button difficult to trigger on the Vendor screen.
  • Vendor refusing to buy some unidentified items.

Thanks all for your interest, happy gaming and thanks for your support!
