it seems interesting, but I'm experiencing quite a bit of lag :P
Taraman Castle Oni Story
=== Taraman Castle Oni Story ===
It is not clear what transpired at the Battle of Taramanjyo last fall, but it is known the shogun's armies were forced to retreat, taking heavy losses from a horrible oni wielding a cursed blade.
Now, that oni rules Taramanjyo. Monsters and demons roam the grounds freely, making sport of the few surviving innocents. Those people not already slaughtered are forced to labor, rebuilding sections of the castle according to some strange purpose known only to the oni himself.
You, a demon hunter in the shogun's employ, have bravely volunteered to kill the oni and find a way to seal the power of the cursed blade. In return, you and your descendants stand to inherit the former holdings of the Kashizawa family-- and the shogun's personal gratitude.
May you prove equal to the task before you.
Taraman Castle Oni Story was written for the 2020 Seven-Day Roguelike Challenge.

I found my end in the gloomy stables... Is every building supposed to have a quest page, and is it always on the last floor? I couldn't find one in Gloomy Stables, and floor 5 is just too bonkers to roam around, even though I was abusing what I believe is a bug (see below).
I think there might be a bug with damage calculation that leads to sometimes gaining one type of life while losing another. Once I got this +4/+2 samurai armor, I started noticing my Spirit increase when fighting some E's. Perhaps a max(0, damage) check is missing?
Hey there! Love the aesthetics of your game, including music, look, and stories! I haven't gotten past height 4 yet, so probably a lot more to see!
Wanted to let you know that there seems to be bug with inventory (happened to me after dying once). Essentially any weapons/armor I pick up is invisible, and equipping it doesn't seem to change my stats. Screenshots attached below.
Another question I had was regarding the numpad navigation. I have an external keyboard for Mac, and when I try using numpad in your game, it doesn't work. Instead, the additional End/PageDown/Home keys take me in DL/UR/UL directions, and no key moves in DR direction :/ The keyboard seems to work elsewhere, so I'm a bit confused.
