Mod Edit: Contest closed, items mostly implemented. Thanks to everyone who submitted entries!


I was looking at the wiki, and realized this game doesn't really have that many recipes yet. I think there's room for a few more, so I propose a contest.

Give me some recipes!

Rules:

0) Post your recipes here in this forum. Recipes sent anywhere else are likely to be ignored, deleted, or eaten by my dog.
1) It can be a combine, or weld.
2) It should consist of turning two existing items into a new item
3) If the process needs any explanation (for example, the recipe for high jump boots is kind of vague; the recipe for the lover's locket is obvious) please include a brief line or two.
4) Provide the name and a very brief description of the resulting item (it's a weapon that does sonic damage; it's a potion that buffs strength).
5) Avoid inventing completely new types of effects -- if nothing in the game does it now, yours shouldn't be able to do it.
6) Limit 1 entry per person. Pick your best, please.
7) Recipes should all be based on common items; no donation items, rares, ultrarares, or once-per-lifetime items.

Judging:

Judging will be based on the following factors, in this order:
1) Cleverness of the recipe and the name of the resulting item
2) Using items that don't currently have recipes
3) Practicality of implementing the item
4) Humor and whim on my part


Example of a good entry:
Quote:
Night Club
Combine long arm of the law with the night cap.
Does sonic damage (because night clubs are loud)

Humor: you can't really combine the hat with the club; the premise is the mask on the night cap causes you to lose your club, and when you think you've found it again, it's actually a different club.


Winners:

Top 3 recipes (as rated by me) will be included in the game. (Runner up-recipes may also be included, or adapted, depending on how many I get and how good they are.) Anyone who suggests a recipe that gets implemented will get 50 of said item.

Top 3 recipes will receive other prizes, to be determined before the contest ends.

So I just need to figure a way to combine a Hero's Cape and a Gold Star.

I said nothing about the recipe being reversible.

Also, I've edited the above to add rule #7.

Right here!

@CS: probably. I've had a placeholder with that name for a year. Just never had a good recipe. Just thought it up.

Rollerblades + high jump boots = Rollover (misc item)

The high jump boots let you get over anything, and the rollerblades provide the rolling. This item can be given out when rollover glitches out and doesn't work right. That way, when someone complains they didn't get rollover, another player can give them one of these.

golden apple + lottery ticket = golden ticket
usable

Description: "You've got a golden ticket! You've got a golden ticket! You've got a golden twinkle in your eye."

gives you a 'wonka bar' (perhaps name changed, but I can't think of a funny one right now) that takes Sugar 3, and gives 50 minutes.

Lack of Pies + Schrödinger's Box = Futility Belt

You place the lack of pies inside the box and close the lid. Several seconds pass in silence, then the box shudders and turns itself inside out... sort of. Where there was once a box is now a belt with many handy pouches. The coloration and design of the pouches are vaguely remind you of the box. Chuckling at your own timidity, you pick up the belt. After all, what's the worst that could happen?

The belt is an accessory that functions as a sort of anti-dreampants, giving out a host of negative effects. You think of what you need when you reach into a pouch, and the pouch produces something that is totally unhelpful.

What kind of unhelpful? Restore HP when your HP is full. Give you grenades with the pin already removed so you take damage. Give you smoke bombs to let your enemies escape. Make a beeping noise to distract you so you lose initiative...

Why do I see these as opposing weapons in PvP?


The Mighty Coyote wrote:
Item 1: Leather Gloves
Item 2: Lover's Locket
Result: Love Glove

Of course it would be made of Latex and provide additional protection. Because you can never be too careful.


rale wrote:

Full body coat

Due to shock caused by the coat, I'd imagine initiative and maybe elec damage (cuz gosh darnit, its shocking! (to further emphasize the shock value))

Pic could be a cool back-shot image of an open trench coat ^^

Sent to me by a mysteeeeeeeeerious person who had their name changed because of the witness protection program.

Quote:
Recipe...

Digital Saber + Robotics Kit = DIGITAL PUPPET

You think you can just order her around like some marionnette, heh? She has a sword, buddy! She could... okay, you can order her around. Watch out for the redheads, though.

Sidekick

2/3 chance for damage absorb and minor damage if activated
1/3 chance for stun and minor damage on self if activated

Saber Marionnettes reference, because that was a CUTE anime.

I'm gonna step in and enforce one of the rules that people seem to be missing:

1 Entry Per Person, please

If you want to list more than one, that's fine, but select your best and put it up top and mark it. If you've got more than one, I'm going to assume the first one is your contest entry.

Also, things like autosell value, item power, etc., really aren't necessary unless it's specific to the joke/feature of the item. Again, see the rules -- just an approximate description is fine. Don't waste your time deciding between +7 or +8 cold damage: I'm gonna throw all that out anyway and do my own calculations. Just tell me if it's hot or cold, ranged or melee, pants or gloves, etc.

IMyself Blog software
+
enerbun sphere
=
IM enerbun legend software

This software allows you, and others, to blog about your adventures, often times adding "pazazz" to the story, making you seem larger than life.

Occassionally adds psychic damage at the begining of an encounter when someone who has read your blog thinks you are more powerful than you actually are.

Could involve jokes about the I am Legend movie or about Batman - the ultimate urban legend.

hope you guys like it, I had fun creating it. *)
