Heew, the week-end was pretty productive, all the more since France lost that damn match (less beer => more time to code :D). Here are the new bells and twistles...
You can now buy and equip shields on off-hand to increase your armor class. There is also a spiked shield that is the only item type that has armor and attack features (it increases your armor class and gives you an attack skill).
Buying a spiked shield...
and using it as a weapon.
Now humanoid creatures can use weapons and wear armors. Fights are tougher but the reward is more interresting. They still have whelk's AI, but can already be a real danger for the foolhardy.
I created a first sketch of the death screen with some statistics.
Next tasks :
- a blacksmith to repair your gear
- improve feedback during fights
