An idea for a nonseizium talisman:

Freeman Sphere
You think there might be an entire solar system inside, but that's just...

infinitesimally increased chance of finding an ultra-rare
+2pp/turn
-1hp/turn
-5% Str

would it be possible to get some wandering villains that when defeated give you a permanent stat boost instead of dropping an item? (maybe those can give you some chips too, since they wouldn't have an item to drop...)

It's probably easier to have them drop an item which grants stats rather than directly conveying them, but I'd suspect that's a reasonable thing for them to do. Of course, it's not really up to me these days, but it's a fair idea.

How about a batting cage as a "store" or hideout fixture. It could give buffs like +melee damage (obviously) or +dodge (The machine started shooting baseballs at your head!).
Inspired by spring training, of course, and it would continue this game's tradition of baseball-related stuff.

I propose that NCI Live be the 'sponsor' of the unbranded arena.

If Catalyze is going to get a makeover (like Metalmorph did), might i suggest...
-Iron ox-hide
-Butt rock, and its more "refined" derivative Hair metal

I would like to see a gorilla-mask and gorilla-suit combo, just because I think it would be funny.

Maybe next Halloween?

To complete the flapper costume:
yuggothium + platinum necklace = squirming pearl necklace

Oh, and we should have a reference to a famous flapper!
yuggothium + moonbow = Bow of Clara

An idea for higher level characters:

Oaths, Codes, or Creeds

Like Retcon restrictions, these would govern the way you play the game. Once you adopt a (I'm just going to call them Codes) Code, you gain small benefit of some sort (skill, resistance, access to a special item, a buff, etc.) that you retain as long as you choose to follow the Code.

If I were implementing it, I would relate some of them, if not all of them, to alignment. I would also consider making them alignment dependent. I wouldn't want the granted bonus to be huge, but it should be large enough to justify adopting a Code and accepting the associated limitations.

It would be interesting to make them a once per Retcon thing, too. That way people are encouraged to Retcon to test them all.

I love the limitations Retcon, and every time I get to the higher levels I miss them. In particular, I want to follow the Ascetic's Code, and swear off sugar and caffeine (since I frequently fail to eat or drink to fullness, anyway), and it would be nice to get a small buff or resistance in exchange.

I'm a little disappointed there's no "plethora" of Mechapinatas. (Oh yes, it's very nice!)

From the description for the "steamwork core":
"...Whether you need to make a flying trilobite or a spring-heeled timesuit..."

So, why not:
Weld: steamwork core + trilobyte = flying trilobyte (vehicle?)
and
Weld: steamwork core + ACU suit = timesuit
Assemble: timesuit + high-jump boots = spring-heeled timesuit
(for example)

From the description for the "leopard skin loincloth":
"...Sadly, female heroes will have to look elsewhere for the matching leopard skin bikini top."

So, why not:
Assemble: leopard skin loincloth + coconut bikini top = leopard skin bikini top

Also: Weld: pentium + brick outhouse = penthouse

Okay, I'll be quiet now.

I am surprised at the lack of a 'negaverse', one of the classic comic book locations. Perhaps there could be a quest where you enter Twilight's antiverse. You can enter the Insanitarium or the Cage, where famed supervillain D'nar the Dark Watcher sends people to make them insane or locks them up indefinitely, respectively.Or go to the Unversity, where Susan Kavon drains the minds of the best and brightest. Team up with some of the most famous heroes of that world, such as The Ace
Spoiler: show
(Michael Ace)
[/color], or seek aid from the fledgeling Psion hero, the Bind Mender. Finally, attempt to survive the dangers of The Neighborhood, a crime-riddled cesspool of darkness, ruled by the diabolical [your name here]. You mistake him/her for Your Evil Twin, but he/she explains, they aren't your twin, they are YOU. The first "fight" is a noncombat, as you are unable to beat yourself. Luckily, a few more adventures helps you find Your Heroic Twin (Your Evil Twin's antiverse counterpart), who is defeated by Antiverse You but weakens hem so you can fight hem.

As long as they're optional that'd be nice, the reputation mechanic needs to stand out a bit more imo :wink:

You already can fight your evil twin, in fact you get a merit badge for doing so enough times.

I thought "Your Evil Twin" was more literal, as they were your twin, not actually YOU. That's why "Your Heroic Twin" is part of my suggestion. But if not, then this could explain where e comes from.

This Guy should be a villain.

Only name I could think of Suspicious Activist, but then it sounds like he should be at the university riot, but he doesn't look the part. Apparently his name is Boris, though. "Boris the Burglar" to be specific.

With the discovery of the heirloom carrot, I think you missed an opportunity for a reference to one of my favorite super-teams.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Carrot_and_His_Amazing_Zoo_Crew!

I like the fact that they zoomed around in a vehicle called the Zoo Crewser!
EDIT: fixed url

If you're wearing the full Little Red Riding Hood outfit, you should get some sort of bonus if you also have the Wolf sidekick.

Just as a note: A LONG time ago, before the mechapinata badge was revealed for what it is, I tried this to check for the sidekick badge.


In other suggestions, I still think you should be able to weld goat horns to the qb helmet to make a [Minnesota] Viking Helmet

I think it would be interesting to have an underwater league foe, with each separate source of underwater breathing extending the number of combat rounds until you had to break off the fight, kind of like the limit on combat rounds while fighting the Orwhal.
Diving outfit (or Seppia's Cephalopod Skullcap), harbor pearl, sub-ma-car, and being an Elemental would each extend the number of rounds you could fight the underwater menace.

ice cool hairgel + Elijah Bot = ice cool principal
ice cool hairgel + Eskrima book = ice cool yearbook (When used, gives your understudy a new sidekick skill: ice cool cheerleader)
ice cool hairgel + hyper-c, drop = ice cool drop-out
ice cool hairgel + drumsticks = rock & roll ice cool

....I...I'm sorry.

problem with this is that it favours iotm and a particular class :/

I personally would like to see a villain that finally made use of the "gas mask" to avoid some noxious gases, similar to how fire selfdamage protects from the hypothermia debuff against the icebergs.

I can't decide which would be more fun:
(1) fighting crime while wearing a luchador mask, or
(B) having a luchador as a sidekick

For the next Battle of the Bands, the first opponent you encounter could be:

Opening Band
This is the Opening Band. They're the band on stage before the band you actually want to see. The lack of respect they've gotten has opened their hearts and minds to violence.

When defeated, you get an item:

opening number
A small number one, with small opening, that, when opened, will open new opportunities for you.
Combat usable
Allows you to use any opening once per day

gears + foul fowl = Technical Fowl

When used in combat:
As you wind up to throw the item, your foe tries to hit you. A referee blows his whistle and kicks your opponent out of the game on a technical fowl. Wait, what?
