Version 0.3.0 – 19 December, 2021

Welcome to Ruleset 0.3

Number adjustments. Elite chests. New shields. Many fixes.

Many of the dungeon's health and damage numbers have been tweaked. Things should feel more fair, and you might even feel overpowered at times! Lady Tallowmere hopes these changes makes your dungeon experience more pleasant. Still, please remember to keep your shield raised to avoid dying.

New dungeons now use Ruleset 0.3.


Ruleset 0.2
  • The previous Version 0.2 leaderboard is now known as Ruleset 0.2. It's been a fun journey over the past year with Version 0.2, potion exploits and all. Thank you for sharing your feedback along the way.
Ruleset 0.3
  • A new leaderboard for Ruleset 0.3 has been added. Lady Tallowmere wishes you good luck with your new high scores and speed runs.

  • Algorithms for enemies and traps growing stronger have been adjusted. Enemies and traps should feel more reasonable than Version 0.2.
  • Loot rarities and item tiers are now more random as you progress through the dungeon, rather than being guaranteed.
  • Enemy stat calculations no longer expect the player to have a minimum item rarities nor item tiers. As such, any fancy loot you find should keep you above the enemy scale in most circumstances. However, don't let your guard down...


Rarity colours:
  • Treasure chests now have a coloured indicator, signifying the rarity held within.

Elite chests:
  • Elite enemies now guard extra treasure chests most of the time.
  • Elite chests become unlocked when the elite is defeated.
  • Elite chests contain a minimum 3-star rarity.

Basic Rewards:
  • A new Basic Reward has been added: Health & Strength
    • Offers a small amount of max health and attack power.
    • This reward type is rolled with the existing "Strength" and "Health" reward types in the first two slots.

Mystery Rewards:
  • The third Mystery Reward slot now has a chance to expose what the reward is, rather than being a mystery.


Added three shields from the original Tallowmere:

  • Darson's Shield
  • Ghoulhide Shield
  • Legacy Shield

  • Healing values have been adjusted to be more generous.
  • Buff durations have been increased for most special potions.

Enemy AI:
  • Enemies now sync their positions less often often during combat. This should make things feel smoother with less abrupt position changes.
Data synchronization:
  • Improved handling of data syncing during room loading.
  • If a data issue is detected during room loading, a new synchronization event will occur automatically, where the game client will redownload the entire dungeon data from the server.
Chat commands:
  • If you feel your dungeon is out-of-sync for some reason, you can now enter a chat command to redownload all dungeon data from the server.
  • The following new chat commands perform the same sync event:
    • /sync
    • /resync

Local High Scores:
  • Local scores now record which Ruleset the score was using, but this has not yet been categorized. The UI for filtering local scores by Ruleset will be added in a future patch.
