I liked it too, and I also need to finish it. I got stuck, took a break hoping I'd come back fresh and feel like an idiot when I find out what I missed.

I like that it's a modern version of games like Eye of the Beholder, etc., but I'd like to see a blend of LoG with roguelike elements, ie. random dungeons, permadeath (optional).

That was Dungeon Hack, made with the Eye of the Beholder II engine. Permadeath would feel kind of weird with a party-based game, though.

I think it could work. Like in Dungeons of Dredmor, have it an option and remove the ability to save/load with it on. If a party member dies, it's permanent. After all party members die, it's game over, save deleted.

While I get the hardcore mode, like Diablo, I still prefer it in a rogue-like game that is short and played in one session.

I used to keep a running list of ways I died in Nethack:
- wearing a blindfold to use my telepathy to hunt down a cockatrice and a kobold wizard, having my gauntlets exploded when the kobold read a scroll of destroy armor at me, killing them both, feeling around on the ground for the cockatrice's corpse so i could stone things with it and getting instantly petrified because i touched it when my gloves were off

- choking to death trying to eat The Largest Giant

- disintegrated by god for committing heresy

- casting genocide on my own race

- killed by my own ghost

- polymorph trap turned me into a water-breathing creature, nowhere near water

I need to start playing again!
