    my text based RPG!

    First, I just wanna say that so far the text RPG I'm doing is VERY easy. I'v had no trouble doing anything yet (logic), just some syntax trouble. But making these are MUCH more fun than making tic tac toe or battleship.

    Also, for those of you who have done it, how did you do the room switching? I have a very good way of doing it I think, but I won't release any source code until it is finished or if I need help. I think this will be very cool indeed, but I need some cool ideas.

    Right now the game is called 'Dungeon of Doom'....sort of cheesey, but I don't know what else to call it. What sorts of monsters, weapons, and magic should I include in here?

    You start out at home....and eventually end up in the dungeon of doom where the game begins. The dungeon will be very big with many rooms, since the room thing is not problem. If it is any good, I can make more levels after the dungeon. Gimme some cool ideas for it though.

    The way I did my map was an 2D array, perhaps 200*200 or even bigger if you like. No real room switching... but floor switching is easy enough, have one element within the array be a 2(for a stair to the next level), 1 for walkable terrain, 0 for walls.

    If you want to make cool walls and so on try changing the color of the text (grey for wealls for example) and then print out a space.

    Well rouge is french and means red.

    Rogue on the other hand is a sort of thief guy.

    Xterria: Rogue is a console game where you move around the character RPG i think...

    Invicible: His icon is from his game Doom 2-D. Right Xterria?

    Yes, you look like nice, only a bit too round, is it because of too much programming?
