Peleron's Brilliant Rebirth (PBR)



Peleron's Brilliant Rebirth (or PBR) is a pseudo-roguelike CRPG by Topi Ylinen.

My earlier related programming projects include Angband hacks, the best known of which is Zangband. I chose to write PBR from the scratch mainly for two reasons:

  1. It was easier to start from scratch than try to tweak *angband into something that it was not designed to be.
  2. I automatically have the copyright to the full source code.

For a more detailed project background, refer to the readme.1st file in the game docs directory. (You should read that file first anyway.)

The game is set in Ikoniel, a unique world designed by Topi Ylinen. For more details on the game world, refer to the files Introduction.rtf and world.txt in the game docs directory.
