Test server not possible
I would like to have a 'test' instance of the game, which would get updates pushed to it first, and have more turns (or new days running more frequently)... However, I don't think it's possible under my current hosting arrangement... I'm mostly limited by memory at the moment, and I think another instance would effectively double the memory usage.

So unless someone has some spare server space (with Apache, mod_perl and mysql), I don't think it'll happen anytime soon. If/when the game becomes popular, and the ads start ticking over some revenue, and we maybe start taking donations/subscriptions, I'll be able to buy a bit more capacity to do these things.

How much memory does the app require - or send me an email if you want to take this off the forum.  I do have one Linux environment that may have some space.

Also I'm currently stuck in a dungeon and just keep getting an error when trying to attack - logging out and back in again doesn't seem to work...

Looks like there's a bug around casting spells on creatures.  I've ended the combat you were in, so you should be ok now... probably better to avoid casting spells on creatures for the moment... will fix that bug soon.

Will email you about the server space

Ok, that bug should be fixed now.
