Please support us, help reach the funding goal and spread the news - it's so hard to reach people and your help is highly appreciated! Why is this exciting news for ADOM?
For three major reasons:
First of all it hopefully will help broadening the audience for ADOM in general. A wider audience always is good because it helps keep us going.
Some of the design points from ADOM RPG will find their way into ADOM (not all of them, mind you, and more of them will make their way into Ultimate ADOM because for that we are completely re-examining all aspects of the current system). But there are interesting new parts like racial abilities that scale with increasing experience level (similar to class powers) or new ideas for class powers (so a pending revision of the existing class power system), many new corruption ideas and similar things that are very interesting for ADOM and thus eventually will find their way into ADOM.
You finally can play ADOM face to face with other roleplayers.
Additionally you in theory can affect the development of ADOM, Ultimate ADOM and the RPG in case you'd like to donate on one of the ultra-high levels - these will yield new factions and artifacts we design together with you. These factions and artifacts will make a direct appearance in Ultimate ADOM, in the ADOM RPG and (for the artifacts) also in ADOM.
