Gumband 2.3.0 Released

Gumband, an angband variant currently being mantained by R. Dan Henry, a r.g.r.d regular, and created by Joseph William Dixon has reached version 2.3.0 with many new changes on the list.

So, what’s especially worth trying? Well, there are the three new races to play. Vampires have changed enough to be worth a new look. A Beastman is the best way to experiment with the new mutation set. A Half-Giant Archer can the game with a x7 multiplier using a heavy crossbow of extra-might. Mindcrafting has been made more convenient since I debugged the repeat-command code.

Gumband is a variant based on Zangband, but replaces most of its Amber influence with Michael Moorcock’s Eternal Champion books. According to the current mantainer there is still a lot of ground to cover, as the project incorporates ideas from the Sword and Sorcery series.
