Z+Angband is continued development of ZAngband by one of its fans who happens to know how to program in C.

Changes highlight

  • Taken quests may create additional areas to explore.
  • Trump magic realm replaced by Conjurations.
  • Mushrooms more distinct from potions.
  • New basic item types.
  • Toggable Zelazny themed and H.P. Lovecraft themed monsters.
  • Dwarvish random name generator.
  • Banks.
  • Temporary summoning but without mana upkeep.
  • Fixes of many Zangband bugs.

The latest version adds a new school of magic (Illusion) and overhauls the magic system. Characters now have a limited number of spell slots and must be more selective in picking spells. Some magic users can 'spend' a spell slot on a spell they already know to increase its power. Spellbooks have also been changed; they now have varying numbers of spells.
