    Thanks for rescuing me earlier Deswa, unfortunately I had nothing in my warehouse yet to thank you with. I wish the warehouse and storage centers were connected, as not having a way back to the 1st town to drop things in the warehouse, I'm finding it kinda useless.

    Hey guys, I could use a rescue too. I got a Monster House, first one, rescue code 0000-0000-1464. There's a crapload of items in there, and some REALLY weak monsters. Curse girls and Tiger Uhos, really nothing I couldn't handle until I got hit with a Spike Bomb explosion.

    I actually love getting in monster houses. I have yet to die in one, woo. Also, I dont mind the lack of item. I got an awesome shield, armband, and a mastersword out of it.

    On my way Varega.

    Speaking of the puzzles, when I beat them all, Fay said something like "oh, I guess I'll have to build some harder puzzles". Does he ever actually do that? It's been a while since then, and he still just has the same 50 puzzles.

    I love change jars. Sure, a gold sword and a blast shield arent great items, but if leveled, that blast shield is awesome and so much better than weeds.

    You should really always use a herb/scroll of site on a monster house, saves a lot of trouble.

    I'm really enjoying Shiren - just not when your inept NPCs all get killed by the same tank, then (now leveled up twice) paints the walls with Shiren chunks (accented with Mastersword +33 and Iron Shield +22 fragments).

    On that note, can someone save my past 2 days of play? I'm on the 12th or 13th floor.

    i have a question.... is it possible to take a bag of money off the ground... and place it in a pot?

    I'd rather like to have "pots of wealth" laying about in my store rooms.

    p.s. if a level looks kinda small... use a sight scroll... i just found a room full of moneybags because an ant soldier dug his way out of it.

    Argh, last rescue for this run. 24th floor, I get hypnotized into putting my Big Riceball into a Jar of Change and then proceed to not be able to find food until my fullness is down to 0 and health is dropping, thanks to a Chiropractic jar I manage to hold out long enough to find a room full of items and traps that happens to have a Riceball in it. But then my health starts draining from something else, and then a Minotaur comes along and finishes me off...

    Just a thought, Bwalk over the money, then use a jar to insert whats underfoot.

    Also I will die on the 27th floor, fuck you hunger.

    Died again. Confusion plus Deaths hurts a lot. Second level of the mines.

    Fair warning. While you are waiting to be rescued, there is nothing you can do with your game other than stop waiting to be rescued, lose your items, cash, and levels, then be sent to the starting area.

    Exception: allegedly once you get to a certain point you'll be able to play past dungeons while waiting to be rescued.

    So at what point does this stop being a boring dungeon crawler and start being a roguelike? Cause I'm only a short bit into this but it's boring as hell and nothing like a roguelike at all.

    So I bit it around floor 12 to hunger and some nasty thing and lose my +4 katana and a decent shield. Frustrating, but no big deal. I start over and pick up a bracelet in the first room of the first floor and equip it. I take one step and I'm level 2, then hit level 3 five steps later. Damn thing is a Bracer of Happiness. I was level 8 before I finished the first floor. That is safely, for the time being anyway, stowed away in my warehouse.

    Yes I have.

    Theres no random maps full of secrets, no grueling difficulty that takes luck and skill to progress, no doom waiting around every corner, no building up to become stronger and stronger.

    So far it's just been beat a small dunegon, watch a cutscene, repeat with no danger.

    Seriously, are we even playing the same game here? Unless you were expecting the hardest roguelike in existence, I don't get your complaints as Shiren has all of that.
