There won't be a tileset out for a day or so at least, but I can recommend Phoebus'. ASCII with a truetypt font is quite nice, if you can't wait. I use DejaVu Sans Bold.
My first adventure character in the new version has started out pretty well. I wandered around a town for a while before departing. The first fort I came across had an enormous stockpile of armour and clothes, so I robbed them blind while nobody was in the room then got out fast. I'm in a mixture of iron and bronze gear now. After noticing you need to eat and drink now, I ran out of food and drink fast. I couldn't find any shops in the nearest town, so I stole a big stack of berries from some poor guy's house and filled up a load of waterskins at well.
I noticed a big purple tower on the map, so decided to go to it. Opened the door and got shouted at by a master necromancer and his apprentice. Yes, all of those Blue Ñs are raised corpses.
Welp, after posting that I got torn to shreds in a matter of seconds. I'm not exactly sure how you kill raised corpses. I got one of those 'shattering the skull and tearing apart the brain' hits on a corpse's head at one point and nothing happened. They don't bleed either, so getting rid of limbs doesn't seem to do a thing. Perhaps you need to kill the necromancers? I never even got to one of them before I was overwhelmed.
