    Largely it's because it can help smooth out the game. It adds reliability to an unreliable game, basically. A melée character with smithing is going to be less dependent on armour/weapon drops than one without smithing, and it can help you acquire some of the better pieces of armour.

    Can, that is. It doesn't necessarily mean it'll happen.

    It's finding chalk to make steel that slows me up. There seems to be plenty of iron and iron ore lying about, but it seems like a waste to craft iron stuff when the steel versions are so much better. Chalk seems like it's pretty rare, though.

    (It is chalk, right? Am I making that up?)

    My approach to crafting is:

    1)Disregard
    2)Pick EVERYTHING off the floor
    3)Sell EVERYTHING to Stan
    4)Buy Stan's gear with my sexy piles of money
    5)?????
    6)Die
    7)Profit!

    By Stan, I wonder if Rauten means Brax ;)

    I dunno if it is chalk you need - but I noticed in my game just now that black pearls can be ground down into chalk. So this might help; I find a fair number of black pearls.

    Well... Brax has a jacket with a movement pattern similar to Stan's. Or he's actually confused and not making a subtle reference to Monkey Island.

    DAMNIT PEDANTRY!. Why do you always get the best of me?.

    This video amused me: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3KoFJinS4-4

    Also, new expansion! I haven't killed Dredmor yet! I haven't seen the Diggle Gods levels! I haven't even played the free expansion pack! But new expansion! Can't wait!

    Lies. His name is Stan, and he sells fine, fine, fine overused and uninsured ships, coffins, and now also all sorts of dungeoneering gear!!

    I only discovered on about floor 13 of my most recent playthrough that you can SELL items. God, I was raking it in by the end. Diggle Gods just seems to flood the dungeon with high-level gear for the last five floors. It was a shame I was a smithing master and didn't need to buy any gear.

    I have started again. I am going to name the adventurers based on forum people. I called the first character Althea because...well.. It seemed like appropriately considering his old avatar. I am going to have a lot of fun with this.

    Its me or now we can pick A LOT of skill trees?

    Most certainly you.
    But also possibly because both expansions added a bunch of skill trees. And if you so desire, you can get mods that add even more skill trees. Why stop at skill trees? Let's go all the way to skill forests.

    I must learn what the new trees are about.

    Any wiki or similar to read about the new skills /stuff in the game?

    I use dredmorpedia, as it seems the most up-to-date.

    And also Dungeons of Dredmor Wiki, which is not the same as the one alms linked.

    Best way to find out is to roll random characters and die a lot.
