Alright, so I've had the world's most disastrous town. I can't reasonably fight anything deeper than level 4, and raids have killed basically everyone. At one point I had 75% of my total exp bar as an exp debt. I also had a town that consisted of only one apothecary, one gambler, and four townsfolk. And Din and me.

Notice that no one in that group repairs gear. And no one sells food or potions.

I even ran out of food. And ran out of all but 4 potions.

I would have abandoned the town, but I knew I had completed a whole lot of quests. So the temptation was to just make it a moment longer, get the quest to get back my warmaster, and finish the town. I stuck it out for over half an hour without him. Possibly much more as its taken me several play sessions.

So I finally get the quest to get him back, but I can't venture more than a few steps from the portal because I have no food. I need to kill two dimensional gates, and they just won't spawn, and I can't go looking for them very far.

I got saved by a timely visit from a wandering vendor, from whom I purchased about 30 food items. I eventually slogged it out, and got back my warmaster. He completed so many quests for me that I leveled from less than 50% exp, with an exp debt that wrapped around the bar.

So... I'd like to export the transcript. From the change log:

"now save the log of things that happen to a nice simple text file (Cadfan)"

How do I do this?

With more difficultyes you lear more unusual ways to survive and way to victory, Random is aonther God, hiding somewhere deeper than Din ;)

I'd like to be able save storyes of towns with ability add comments and maybe even inluding screenshots (Same was realized in Vanguard SOH)

This happened!

Well, that was it for my Warmaster and every single weapon vendor in my town. Five deaths in total. This was annoying, because I'd actually completed some warmaster quests. No problem, I thought. I'll just wait until a new warmaster is available, recruit him, and complete the quests. At this stage I still had a regular vendor, so I could buy food, but I couldn't repair gear.

And thus my tribulations began... Notice that I level up right before the trials begin.

Another dead townsfolk. I'm starting to get really nervous here. Also, the transcript doesn't show it, but I've died a LOT trying to complete the lower dungeon level quests. This area was technically a little tougher than I was, and I'm down in its lower levels at this point. Also, I'm unable to officially accept the new quests because I have no warmaster, so I'm completing them blind. I have no idea how many I've done or what they're worth.

AAAAH! My last vendor is dead! And my steward! Thank goodness the new warmaster quest came from the apothecary! Except... I'm running out of food. The only person left besides my apothecary is a gambler, and she doesn't sell food or potions. This restricts me to one fight at a time at the very entrance of a level. I engage in hit and run, and try to constantly enter and leave the level to convince it to spawn portals close to the gate.

By this stage I had honestly forgotten we even had an Earthquake Machine. It didn't show up as a quest since I didn't have a warmaster. But there it was, right in front of me, so I smashed it.

I about wept for joy when this guy showed up. I bought four stacks of eight food items, and a full stack of overpriced, overpowered potions.

Every time someone attacks the town now I panic. I'm sure that even a single death will end the town. Fortunately, I'm spending a lot of time in town because I'm dying constantly. Death- the fastest way home!

"Sticky Hands" made me LOL. :)

Great town and great use of the new log! Replacing that Warmaster must have felt pretty good after all those troubles. I've had a number of towns that were pretty nasty but probably not quite as close to brink as that town was.

Cool story.

For everyone else, your logs get saved with the rest of your character data (or at least close):

Vista/Win7 - C:\Users\YOUR USER NAME\AppData\Local\DinsCurse\User\chars\Logs

XP - C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\DinsCurse\User\chars\Logs

Good thing you bashed that earthquake machine before you were able to buy food... or else the prices would have been deadly.

I love how you say dying is the fastest way back to town. :D I hate dying!

It's like you have a warmaster death touch! ;)

Run, warmasters, run! Cadfan is coming to *save* the town!

Those logs are cool! You can really relate to the pain even with those one-liners :D.

I recently found most annoying (and greatest!) machine, the evil gate. Man, does that suck when it appears on level 9 when you are exploring level 4.

Hilites from my recent town

Plagueshock's group has built an evil gate.
..
An evil gate has spawned Seru (a Carnage Clan Orc) in to Savage Lair lvl 10!
..
Due to the success of the darkness machine, Viper (a Viper naga) is building an earthquake machine
..
An evil gate has spawned Blackgrudge (a Clay Amorph) in to Savage Lair lvl 6!
..
Seru has started an uprising of Carnage Clan Orcs in Savage Lair lvl 10.
Seru (a Carnage Clan Orc) has formed a group of monsters in Savage Lair lvl 10
Failed Kill Seru quest
Blackgrudge has started an uprising of Clay Amorphs in Savage Lair lvl 6.
..
Blackgrudge has started an uprising of Tiny Clay Amorphs in Savage Lair lvl 6.
Blackgrudge has sent a Lurking Clan Leprechaun scout to town.
..
Blackgrudge has started an uprising of Small Clay Amorphs in Savage Lair lvl 6.
Blackgrudge has sent the assassin Gall (a Gremlin Big Sister) to town!

At this point I got lucky and fell to level 9 and managed to destroy that evil gate. I was still at level 6 and all this happened between exploring level 4 and 5. If I hadn't fallen down to level 9 I don't know how things might have gone. Those uprisings, assassins and scouts were coming in quite often.

Din's Curse seems to have same "luck generator" as Nethack does ;). This happened when I destroyed the gate

Evil Gate has been destroyed.
Seru's group has built an evil altar cursing the area.

Immediately after destroying the gate I got that cursing altar. At that point there still was a darkness machine and that altar + all those named monsies and Viper building an earthquake machine. Somehow I managed to win that town. Took a long while though.
