We've been busy here at the Delver HQ putting together this new update, and I'm happy to announce that it's available right now!
The main focus for this update was to start making use of the offhand item slot and to that end we've added shields, held light sources, and added support in for two handed items. Alongside that work, Joshua started on adding clutter items to fill out the dungeons more and to make things look more lived in.
On the dungeon generator side, there is a new unique dungeon area feature that keeps track of what dungeon chunks have been spawned during a run, and let specially marked areas spawn only once. This system will allow us to make more interesting special event or puzzle areas, and we've added a couple of these as a test of the system.
Lastly, some armor has speed modifiers now so that an adventurer loaded up with full plate mail and a kite shield doesn't move as fast as one wearing leather armor, this is a baby step toward more interesting player choices regarding armor.
- Shields as offhand items
- Two handed weapons
- Speed modifiers for Armor (plate mail is slower than leather)
- Held light sources like candles and lanterns
- Junk clutter items spread throughout the dungeon
- Tiny chance for monsters and boxes to drop junk loot
- New special dungeon areas
- A shadowy figure
