Taking relative to mean "0" as Essential. The values are based off of <Bysymlha the amber eyes>'s game mode changing service in Devil Cape, as she allows the player to change the save to a game mode easier than the present one irreversibly.

Normal difficulty, comparable to Elona.

A Memorial for Quick Use

Detail (Special Action): Quick use magic device
Detail (Hex):
Attribute (Special Action): Magic


Elona+ 1.20 - 1.92
5/19/2013 - 9/16/2019
Replaced by Power item

Quick Use was both a special action and a hex, with the special action having a requirement of 100 Magic Device, costing 40 SP, and inducing the hex for 30 turns. While active, the hex would allow the user to use magical items (rods and potions) without expending a turn, albeit being limited to one use of a magical item before turns progress normally.

The removal of Quick Use in 1.92 marks the first time a hex has been removed from the game, and is the second special action to be removed, since Magic Fist in 1.24.

If the maximum is even, the minimum is half of that number, with almost no exceptions. If it's odd however, the number is generally the ceiling of half the maximum, but if in doubt check anyway.

Running Elona via Wine

This guide assumes the user already has both Wine and winetricks installed on their computer.


  • 1 Dealing with Mojibake
    • 1.1 Text Files
    • 1.2 Unzipping
    • 1.3 Inside Elona
  • 2 Setting up
    • 2.1 Wine
    • 2.2 Fonts
  • 3 Credits
  • 4 Technical Notes

Mojibake (文字化け) (lit. character transformation) is the garbled text that is the result of text being decoded using an unintended character encoding.

Open Text Editor from a menu. Pressing open, select the "Character Encoding" drop-down list and select SHIFT_JIS. If SHIFT_JIS is unavailable, select "Add or Remove..." and put SHIFT_JIS from an Available to a Chosen encoding. Then select the text file. This is useful for opening Japanese documentation and editing config.txt.


As most of the Elona archives (in my personal experience) are .zip en…

Back to zero, again

Hello~

It's been a long time, no? ^^;

Some heavy stuff's happened IRL. Daily life has become harsher to be honest; I never it commented it before but I'm currently living in Venezuela, and conditions are worsening by the day, not helped by how hard it's to find meaningful jobs nowdays, and how little they all pay regardless of station. Hopefully I'll be able to move out soon enough!

My old laptop broke, and with it my old Elona+ savefiles (I had reached Lost Irva and everything...) so I hadn't been playing for months; just this last month I retook the game and I'm kinda getting overwhelmed by all the latest version changes @_@ 

I loved the addition of sub-bosses to Lesimas though~

I've also noticed some guides and articles I wrote before are ei…

Personal Start Guide

This guide is like many new player guides, but more of a focus on my own playstyle, it has a series of 'to do' tasks, in order of priority. It may be atypical from other guides, that's fine.


  • 1 Levels 1-10
  • 2 Level 10-20
  • 3 Level 20-40
  • 4 40-60
  • 5 60-100
  • 6 100-200

  • Rush tutorial.
  • Get the starter pet.
  • Get the Gene Machine immediately.
  • Start getting PP to use for unlocking the mining skill, and gardening.
    • If mining, start to mine, preferably gardening. Next unlock weight lifting, sense quality, cooking, anatomy, and travelling. Skills after are personal choice.
    • If gardening, get to Yowyn, start doing all the quests.
  • Get enough CON & STR to handle puppy cave, if you can, catch Fire Dragon Child with previous monster balls.

Personal Pet List

This is a personal preference for pets, using Elona Custom's AI system for training, it is not well balanced when abused, this guide hopes to show some more fair set-ups which are easily available in a team.


  • 1 Statistics over Skills
  • 2 cBits and Special Actions
  • 3 The Pets
  • 4 Riding and Shopkeepers
  • 5 Optional Pets

Statistics by order of priority to consider when selecting for pets is thus:

Speed > Life > Mana:

Everything else is not as important, though unusual levels of Luck might be, it is uncertain if that would have an important effect. Statistics for pets are very trainable, speed perhaps more trainable than life, and thus, life is more preferable when not considering pets purely for speed. This guide assumes speed of any pet can reach 2,000, addition…

Freafael the Totally-Not-Werewolf

So, one day in Vernis, I encountered a certain totally-not-werewolf citizen named Freafael the Werewolf.

I had encountered their kind in town before, a tasty source of disguise kits. But for some reason, my train of thought wandered to the reason why she was not mobbed my the town inhabitant. She didn't disguise her werewolf-ness very well. She stated herself that she is a werewolf openly! Everyone can see that in her name!

So in my curiosity, I opened the source and searched for the word "werewolf". And that moment was when I found out... that the werewolves are meant to be renamed to "citizen". It fails there in English version though.

Reason being, the generated Japanese name for them looks like 人狼の(randomname), while the English name gener…

Happy New Year everyone~

Hope this comes to be a great year for all of you.

Slightly off topic, have you made resolutions? Normally I don't but lately I've been more determined to become a writer. If you wan't I could post those roleplaying Elona stories I mentioned in my profile, but I understand if it's not to the liking of this community (it's still fanfiction... Plus it can be taken as self-promotion, which is in bad taste).

Translation Work

Current project: AA changelog.

Don't expect too much, but we'll take our time and see what we see.


ver0.25 9/10

・Added new characters, complete with their own fully-implemented cards, corpses, and figurines. However, any character encountered in older versions won't drop their unique memorobilia outside of a certain city.
It is also possibly to wish for the figurines or cards, but they or their drops may eventually be added to a new version, with a different name.

・Fixed a bug in how FFHP handles relations for a second time. The fixed wells outside of towns were pretty amusing.

ARottenLecho's Expanded Dialogue

Hi, folks: This is something I've wanted to do since the game began.

And since there's no better time then the present...

I'd like to present to you my expanded dialogue pack! Compatible with E+ 1.61 with Custom! All you should have to do is copy the talk file over, and it should run just fine.

Installation Guide: Extract the talk.txt from the above link. Place your new file in your elona>data folder, overwriting when asked. You can back up your original talk.txt file if you're unsure about the new dialogues; all you have to do is replace my talk.txt with your original file to 'uninstal' the modification.

Current Version: 0.21

The goal of this addition is to make bumping into NPC's a lot less boring, while still feeling like you're encountering …

Adventures on roguelikes

Elona was the first roguelike I ever played, and remains my favorite. Still, back then I became curious about the roguelike genre as a whole, so I got around checking other titles. The first thing I realized was that Elona is more like a RPG with sim aspects than pure roguelike, and is actually really easy for a roguelike (even when playing on Nightmare mode); the second is that the roguelike genre is almost completely dominated by western developers, indie developers at that, and Elona itself draws a lot from ADOM, a western title, which is a more adventure-driven type of game compared to most of the genre; the third is that roguelikes are really hardcore...

So of course I got around playing a few. These are my personal opinions, and they in…

A Shopkeep's Guide to Daylight Robbery

... Or how to get strong, learn to appraise valuable goods, make ridiculous profits, and become popular doing it! - by 'Gilded' Letzow

I know you're sick of long-winded guides that don't tell you anything, so relax! The moment you've began your dungeon-diving career is the perfect time to open a store. After scrimping up to buy a deed, plop it down and immediately set to work. The first thing you'll want to do is make your store an equipment store, meaning that you'll be selling rings, arms, and armor.

This costs money, and you're going to spend a little more extending the shop's supply. Don't worry too much about this; there'll come a point where you simply can't supply enough items to meet demand; you will not be able to outpace your clerk, s…

I will be back

Hello there~

RL has been really busy lately, still not done with college plus some drama with my former workplace, so I haven't played Elona for a long time. Added to that is that I seem to have lost my savefiles *again* after I changed to my current computer, hopefully my old files may still be somewhere in the old one.

Seems like I might get some vacations after September, so I may catch up with the newest versions. Reading some of the changelogs there's seems to have been lots of bug fixes, new mechanics and advancement of the storyline, not to mention Anna's fabulous Elona Custom, which I still have to check out.

BTW, what's this about Elona getting a Steam release? Saw something about that in one of the forum posts and Noa's page. Don't k…

My goal with this guide is to give other players an idea of what to expect when they decide to use certain pets. The Base/Potential ratings listed here are all opinion based and they are not absolute. You might find some pets to be better or worse depending on playstyle and progression. Keep in mind however that any pet on the game can be usable, and i am willing to edit this guide according to other players's experience with them. I am also open to debate, if you disagree with any ratings please post a valid argument on this blog's talk page and i'll change this guide accordingly.

Some item sprites

'Watch your step—ouch!' This is my first entry, I'm testing out how to submit images since it seems I can't upload this picture for my profile directly.

This image is a derivative work, taking as a base the well from Elona item.bmp, item number 109, sprite 101. It's obviously a fanart from the Ring; I wasn't sure which license type to choose (but my guess would be copyrighted with fair use). It was made with Paint ... :P

A few variations:

I hope you like them. I'm not an expert in pixel art, as you can probably tell.

If you want to use them, edit them with Paint and save as item_101.bmp (file type 24 bits bitmap), then copy it to your elona+/user/graphics folder. More details here: http://elona.wikia.com/wiki/Custom_item_sprite

Elona main story synopsis

This is a direct rip off the Internet archive of old forums, about Elona's main story.

[1]by sssssz on Mon Nov 28, 2011 5:24 am

While I was perusing Elona fansites in Korean Intertubes, I came across a translation of a Japanese synopsis of Elona's main story. Seeing as how this is a lost content from translation, I figured it would satisfy some people's curiosities to translate it to English. I'm aware (as you should be!) that this is a translation of a translation, so some points may have been misinterpreted... But, in any case, I've used multiple references to make this translation. Should be pretty good. :p


The setting of the story is a world named Irva. After the rise and collapse of civilizations, it has arrived at its eleventh era, Sier…

This is what blog posts are, right?

So, item generation. Quite complex procedure that devolves into a few gosubs, vars and much headache. Here I will describe results of my continuing attemps to uncover mechanic behind all this. I don't understand what I'm doing about quarter of time, so there can be and probably will be mistakes.

Here, prm_519 is ID of item (it'll get written into inv.s1 on offset 12, or var_99(3, id)), prm_520 is x coordinate, and prm_521 is y coordinate. prm_518 and prm_522... do something.

Guide to Snail

Short guide/list of tips, tricks, and tactics specifically targetted at snail tourist martial artist. Many of these may be useful for other characters, but some (in the author's view) basic things have been left out. some parts may involve less pure actions that others may consider exploits and unfair.



  • 1 Character Creation
  • 2 First days
    • 2.1 Early game priorities:
    • 2.2 Navigating the world
  • 3 elona+
  • 4 TLDR

This section details tips and factors to keep in mind while creating the snail.

Of the basic attributes, Constitution is the biggest factor in the PC's HP, a little over twice as effective as Strength. Maximizing Constitution and Strength will lead to a slightly stronger snail.

There are many feats, all of them unique, but some are more useful than others. …

Fast Attributes Training

Recently while playing Elona+, I have been focusing on improving my attributes instead of my level. I usually managed to increase all my attributes (except Life, Mana, Speed, and Luck) in less than 2 hours from Superb (200%+ potential) to Good by average 4 points. Currently, my attributes are currently above 200 without bonus and my current level is above 100. After all attributes become Good, I drank blessed potion of potentials.

I also have tested with 380%+ all attributes potential (except Life, Mana, Speed, and Luck). In less than 2 hours, I managed to increase all attributes by 7 points from Superb to Great. Compared with the 200% potential before, I prefer the 380%+ since it boosted higher and faster than 200%+ (from Superb to Good) i…

Difference between equip quality

One thing that I've overlooked for a long time in Elona+ was the usefulness of equipment qualities. Higher quality items not only have more attributes, but also higher stats - damage, hit bonus, and DV/PV. (Also to keep in mind: Even if you reroll multiple times the same material on the same equip, you'll usually get different stats everytime.  For example, a good diamond sniper rifle may have its stats anywhere between 1d46 and 1d55, as shown below.)

In order to further emphasize the difference between qualities, I made some tables to show the worst and best result you may get from rerolling the same material on the same item type, but each one with a different quality.

The first table shows weapons' worst and best rerolls given the Diamond

Equipment material rerolls

Equipment material can be changed by reading a scroll of inferior/change/superior material, but I've noticed that some materials are more likely to happen from others, regardless of the types of scrolls used. And I also wondered about the difference between blessed scrolls of change vs unblessed superior scroll.

I've decided to run a test (Elona 1.52fix) to verify the behavior of material rerolling. The following results show the materials applied on a cloak by reading 250 scrolls of blessed change material, superior material and blessed superior material (each).

For now, still absent

College caught up on me, badly...

I haven't been playing Elona for some time now. Besides college some other games have caught my attention, and what little free time I have I use to play them (Rune Factory and Pokemon, actually).

Also, virus. Fortunately I had a backup of my files and saves in a pent-drive so no loss there.

Also game a quick read to Anna's Elona Custom page. Incredible job there Anna!! I hope to play it once I have more free time (or when I finish any of the aforementioned games...).

So yeah, that's that for now...

Miyana's Custom NPCs

I finally got around to checking my CNPCs to fix the old buggy ones, so I figured I'd just throw up them here in case anyone else wants to use them.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/h2gm44wuxgom1yg/Miyana%27s%20CNPC%20Pack1.1.zip?dl=0

There are currently 107 CNPCs up to level 255. As I made most of them with a specific idea rather than an overall plan, some of them may have severe balance and quality issues, but for the most part they should be decent.

A bestiary with monster name, level, race, class, and a short description can be found inside.

While I've yet to have any crashes occur, it's possible an error I didn't see could pop up, so if a crash occurs please inform me here.

Installation instructions are in the pack.

If you have any questions or co…

Elona Cutscene Viewer Beta 0.1

(This project is essentially discontinued in lieu of the Elona+ custom builds.) - Aug 18, 2015

Version 0.4 is now out! See the changelog below!


Have you ever wanted to view the cutscenes from Elona like they appear in the game? In English? Well, now you can!

I am happy to release the Elona Cutscene Viewer. It's still in Beta (feature complete), so there are probably plenty of quirks to iron out. However, it should be to a point where others can get some use out of it.


  • 1 What does it do?
  • 2 How do I use it?
  • 3 Where can I find it?
  • 4 Changelog

Well, basically, it plays files that use Elona's scripting format in a way mostly-accurate to how they appear in-game. It also understands some additional tags so that branching dialogue can be implemented.

In short,…

Learning the need of backups the hard way

Word to the wise: Always make backups of you saves. Lost my old savefiles at least twice from blackouts and would have lost my current highest-level one if I hadn't made a backup.

Running Elona under Wine

I've found that Elona runs pretty well on Linux under Wine. In some Linux setups there's a delay between pressing a key and the game responding. This can be fixed using xset to lower the "typematic delay". For instance:

xset r rate 200 25

works pretty well for me. You can then raise the delay to the default with:

xset r rate

Elona and Translations

So, did you know? Essentially every item in Elona has a cool little description in the Japanese version that never got put into the English release.

No, no, I'm not talking about the small little blurbs like "An alchoholic beverage made from crimberry." that you can see when inspecting a bottle of crim ale. The Japanese version has those too, of course, but what I'm talking about is an entirely seperate bit of flavor text that's tagged on to every item in the game. Typically, these are attributed to some type of organization or similar (such as to the "Irva Fantasy Encyclopedia" for static artifact descriptions). Some of them even contain quotes from various characters from Elona's story! For instance, the translation of the Diablo 's descr…

Source mining 01: pet reunion

As I keep poring over the Elona+ source, I keep finding stuff that looks fascinating, but figuring out the exact details is beyond my causal knowledge. Maybe a group discussion could shed light on details that I alone could not uncover.


Remember the "Reunite with your pet" scene, at the very first time you enter Vernis? Your regular choices are a little girl, dog, cat or bear. Now it turns out that there is an alternative scene where the choices are the four secret characters (H sister, White young lady, Lazy older sister, M girl) that can normally be unlocked by reading the Insane book/wishing in the Japanese version only!

As you can see, there is a complete English translation for the scene, including new character names in the dialog. See…

Labeled Elona Spritesheets and Tutorial

The other day I found myself wasting minutes poring over item.bmp for a single sprite, which made me realize that finding the actual sprite tends to the most challenging part of sprite extraction. Although we have a already, it's not the most versatile one, especially ever since I lost the source file.

Here you can see how to create labels for Elona spritesheets easily, using only Excel and a graphic editor. The label set comes with its own grid, and pretty much everything on it is changeable, including font style, size, position, number of rows, columns etc.

  • 2 Formatting the labels
  • 3 Exporting the label sheet into the spritesheet
