The year is 208 AD: The Roman general Septimius Severus leads
a force of 40,000 Roman troops into what they called Britannia.

As an ancient native warrior, what the Romans referred to as picti
or "picts", you call the region home and must wage guerilla warfare
just to survive. [Pict] features an 8000-room totally unique ASCII
game world based on an actual map of the area between the
Antonine Wall and Hadrian's Wall in ancient Caledonia, what we now
would call southern Scotland. You start just south of the Antonine.

Trapped between great Roman walls and two impassive seas, your
home is an inescapable warzone. The highlands and valleys team
with beasts, monsters, hostile bandits, subdued vassal tribesmen,
and ruthless, reckless Romans that constantly fight and/or team
up with each other based on their AI. Players can explore freely or
complete kill quests to advance their character skills and statistics;
one can also gather pelts from animal kills, which can then be traded
with friendly Hunters for random items or used in leatherworking.

Leatherworking is only one of many powerful crafting skills available;
players can also forge bronze and iron armor and weapons with the
blacksmithing skill; or craft bows, staves, or wands with fletching,
brew a potion for any known spell or scribe it to a scroll which other
players can then study. All gear can also be enhanced or enchanted.

Pict's core gameplay is open-ended character advancement and gear
customization that requires difficult choices but can lead to ingenious
and powerful equipment combinations; any item that can be worn
has a chance to be enchanted or enhanced, and the mods are fully
randomized (like Diablo and other such games). There are no "best
items in the game", only the best items you've found and how well
they synergize with your skillset. The game also features five tribal
factions that give discounts at shops and stat bonuses as you gain
their favor by killing Romans and completing quests in their lands.

Magic in Pict is arcane but powerful; players start with a very small
selection of spells that are difficult to use and can even cause harm
to the caster if used without enough mana, but new spells can be
found in the game world like other items. Using the study skill will
add the spell to your repertoire permanently or destroy it if you fail.
All gear can be enchanted, and crafted gear is easier to enchant.

Pict is currently in casual development; if you would like to report
an issue or suggest a change, e-mail me or send a note to Theran.
