    For a lack of a better name...
    This is where I plan to put things that I make. For now, there is only a WIP game on there.

    Feedback on the site and design are welcome. I'm not looking for feedback on the game at the moment, but you're free to try it out.

    I don't think you could get more basic than how you have your main page setup.

    As a player who at one time was addicted to Rogue and rogue like games, I have to tell you, if the player cant survive or even defeat a rat, you need to change the attack/defense algorithms to help your character last past the first encounter. You might consider the player find a weapon in the first or second room, or possibly a shield. Yours is the first version of rogue that I've ever played where I encountered a dragon on the first level.

    Not every room has to contain a monster, a room can be empty (one empty room in 3 or 4 is a good ratio), contain an object, that's a clue, tool, decoration, ammo of some kind (mostly arrows), a secret door, trap, scroll or something along one wall that the player must read or reveals an entry to a hidden room.

    Like your main page says, it's a start, and I'll visit it once in a while to see how things are progressing. Oh, and until the player can actually defeat first level monsters, try and not have then appear in a doorway as you enter a room.

    Good luck with your project.

    How is it possible for so little content to still not pass validation? Leaving that aside, I'm a fan of clean-cut appearance. You should probably give it some visual emphasis though. The way it looks right now bears a striking resemblance to what is commonly referred to as a text-desert. Removing colours and underline indicators from links is totally unacceptable -- unless you expect every visitor to try-and-error guessing around.

    @phclausx - What, precisely are you using as a "validator"? The only thing that could actually be considered an error on this site is a missing language attribute on the HTML element (meaning that the user agent default controls). Everything else comes under WCAG/WAI; it's perfectly valid HTML 5 with accessibility problems. (The same applies to all of your validation rants here.)

    Excuse me, it must have slipped my attention that making a simply comment would fall under /ranting/

    You may want to have a look at https://validator.w3.org/unicorn/ch...=(detect automatically)&ucn_task=conformance#
    or if you prefer at https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http://tilded.x10.mx

    Unless you consider the W3 a bunch of dummies, it's the very place where standards come from.
    And in case you're interested, below links refer to my own sources:

    https://validator.w3.org/unicorn/ch...=(detect automatically)&ucn_task=conformance#

    https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http://phclaus.eu.org

    WAVE http://wave.webaim.org/report#/http://phclaus.eu.org
    ACChecker http://achecker.ca/checker/index.php - just enter my site's URL

    Finally, /perfectly valid HTML5/ seems a bit off, don't you agree? The current status for HTML5 is recommendation, meaning it's a long way from what would be an official standard. Toying around with HTML5 may be fun for the masses of mark-up illiterate, but certainly not for someone interested in producing _valid_ sources.

    That all said, I dare once more apologise for having obviously trespassed the boundaries of common sense. Rest assured, I have no need to repeat the same error twice. Regards.

    Thanks for the feedback! The errant noscript has been removed.
    @ken.gervais89 It's true that the game is obtuse and confusing; the combat system is experimental. The help screen and attack animations might help you understand what's going on.

    Could look better... For example, the page looks small on my netbook (Not taking up whole screen) and even worse on my PC of 1920X1080.

    Thanks for your time,
