Ascent into the Depths of Beyond -------------------------------- The Scarlet Plague overran your village in a day and was gone as suddenly as it came. Unlike the lucky ones who had died swiftly albeit screaming in torment, you bear no outward signs of disease at present. But you are marked for doom just the same. And though you have spent all that remains of your fortune in consulting with the finest apothecaries in the land they have proved powerless to halt the plagues macabre advance. So you wind down your affairs and prepare for death. For it is better to die cleanly by ones own hand then to spend the rest of ones days writhing in the hellish agony that is the implacable fate of the Red Reaver's victims. But then from a chance pilgrimage to the Temple of Stars comes a glimmer of hope. The oracle who resides there has shown you the location of the fabled Depths of Beyond where over 1000 years ago the experiments of a mad alchemist went horribly wrong, rending the fabric of reality in ways the sages of our times can scarcely fathom. They say magic flows uncontrollably there. Strange gibbering beasts from unknown dimensions haunt accursed corridors and perhaps the unshriven spirit of the alchemist still remains. Even if not, some of his potions and philtres surely must survive. And perhaps from them may be distilled the cure that you seek. It is a long shot but...what do you have to lose? Installation ------------ AitDoB is currently distributed as source. You will need a C++ compiler capable of handling the C++11 standard and the ncurses library to compile it. So far it has only been tested with g++ 4.6 on Ubuntu Linux 10.10 and Debian GNU/Linux 6.0. Change to the directory containing the source code and compile the program like this: $ make ...Then run it from the directory $ ./aitdob ...or install it like this # make install This will install into /usr/games. You can change the location by setting the PREFIX variable. So for example: PREFIX=/usr/local make install ...will install into /usr/local/games. A more flexible build framework and perhaps some prebuilt binaries will be provided soon.
