File Description

DungeonDoom is a Doom3 modification for Windows operating systems(Linux version to be released soon). DungeonDoom incorporates most key features of roguelike games. In particular, levels are largely composed of mazes, which are generated with a pseudo-random number generator. Levels have stairs leading either to higher or lower levels of the dungeon.

The lower the player descends into the dungeon, the stronger the enemies get. Killed enemies drop gold which then can be used by the player in shops to buy weapons and ammo . Much of this functionality is not part of the original Doom3 engine and has been added to DungeonDoom. The modification is highly extensible and the current 6.0 builds of DungeonDoom include an overworld, a storyline, random quests, special level bosses with special abilities, a magic system, an equipment system, a character developement system and a player ability system.

Changes:

- Advanced dungeon structure including stairs, platforms and various ceiling heights. - New character class 'cardmaster' based on collectible card gameplay. See specific Instructions for details. - Representation of spells and abilities by graphical icons. Revised control scheme using keys 1-9, right mouse button as shortcut for key 1 and v to replace any spellkey with key 1. - Alignment system and dynamic storyline influenced by player alignment. - NPC's in the dungeon: either killed and looted or rescued by leading them to the stairs leading up - your behavior towards npc's will influence your alignment. - More user-friendly full screen guis - nicer shop representation. - Special objects can be found in the dungeon and can be sold at the shop. The shopkeeper will trade with you -good skills will earn you more gold. - New monsters: obihb's shambler and various particle creatures. - Tough zsecs that toss grenades and instantly kill nearby player at lower levels. - Added slightly revised stamina system. Vitality influences stamina regeneration and dexterity defines speed at exhaustion level. - Various new items. - Removed the 'secret room' feature.

                    Specific instructions:
*************************************************************

-------------------------------------------------------------
                magic spells and useable items:
-------------------------------------------------------------

Spells and Items are activated using icons placed in the 
player hud. Use the stats gui to assign available 
spells/items to hotkeys 1-9. At the beginning only one spell 
is available, but more spells can be learned at higher levels. 
For items, a maximum of 15 items can be stacked. Use the V 
key and subsequently one of the hotkeys 2-9 to switch it's
position with hotkey 1. Hotkey 1 can also be activated by 
clicking the right mouse button.

-------------------------------------------------------------
                  experience and abilities:
-------------------------------------------------------------

By killing enemies you will earn experience, which will 
enable advances in character level. You will earn two ability 
points at each level advance. Use the tab key to enter the 
status gui. Select an available spell or ability using the 
mouse. CLick select to learn/upgrade that ability. More 
spells/abilities and higher levels will become available 
later in the game. At higher spell levels, casting is more 
likely to succeed and costs less mana. Higher ability levels 
improve weapon efficiency.

-------------------------------------------------------------
             status, requirements and equipment:
-------------------------------------------------------------

Some spells/abilities have certain status requirements (such 
as 12 strength or 13 intelligence). 10 status points are 
available at the beginning, but be careful and spend these 
points wisely. Through the proceedings of the game you will 
only abtain 4 more status points (one for each end boss 
killed). Alternatively you can also augment your status 
values by buying certain items at the shop. These items can 
then be equiped through the status screen (TAB key). Plan 
wisely, as some of these items themselves have status 
requirements. More powerful and more expensive items directly 
confer certain magical abilities to the player.

-------------------------------------------------------------
         quests and tips for survival in the dungeon:
-------------------------------------------------------------

To gain experience and gold more quickly, look for challenges 
offered by npcs in the overworld. Satisfy their requests by 
meeting the objective in the indicated dungenlevel. Retrieve 
your reward by returning to the questgiver. Depending on the 
gameplay variant (Short, Medium or Long) teleporters will be 
available at certain levels (for example at every forth level 
in the short gameplay variant). The teleporter will transport 
you back to the overworld, where items can be stocked up for 
further progression through the dungeon. Be sure to prepare 
yourself well when you descend into the dungeon. Take enough 
ammo and potions to survive to get to the next teleporter.

-------------------------------------------------------------
               The CardMaster Character Class:
-------------------------------------------------------------

A new character class, the 'cardmaster' has been added which 
completely relies on a deck of cards to survive in the 
dungeon... The cardmaster cannot learn abilities or spells, 
does not develop stats and cannot equip or buy items/weapons. 
Instead, the cardmaster recieves a random collection of cards 
at the start of the game. This collection can be extended by 
buying new cards at the shop. A selection of cards must be 
arranged into a deck, which will be shuffled on each 
dungeonlevel transition.

The deck is arrange thorugh a transformed stats screen (press
TAB). Card information can be retrieved by clicking a card 
once. Repeated clicking transfers cards one-by-one from the 
collection into the deck and vice versa.

In the dungeon, every 5 seconds a new card is played from the 
deck and placed in the icon bar. Mana cards raise your 
maximum capacity for one of the four different kinds of 'card 
mana': blue, red, life or death. Action cards need a given 
amount of such mana to be activated. Action cards can trigger 
single use or multiple use magic or ability effects, such as 
healing, spawning of lightsources, magic projectiles or 
limited rounds of shots from a weapon. 

Tips for building good decks:

You need to arrange your deck carefully, so that a right 
mixture of mana and action cards are included. You also need 
sufficient cards, to avoid running out of firepower in the 
middle of a dungeonlevel. As a rule of thumb, you should have
about as many mana cards as spell cards. Some attack cards 
such as spark or fireball include a relatively high amount of 
fire power. Making decks of more than 3 colors can be very 
challanging, as it might take a while till you get a useful 
combination of spells and mana. Change your deck depending on
the challenge that is ahead. In boosrooms you need to quickly
get strong firepower, but you do not need to stay around for 
long, so a quick, small deck made of only one color can be 
most effective. In a deeper dungeon level, you will need more
firepower and healing capabilities, so you will need to build
more complex decks for these situations.
