Talk about the game. What game? The game with the power? What power? The power of ... aw, skip it.

I reckon I would be happy with everything ticked except caffeine use. Gotta have the coffee!

I just read the synopsis on the game website. For some reason my brain read:
Strange breasts roam the sewers. I was totally laughing my head off when I re-read it!

I am starting to think your caffeine level is out of whack one way or another

As to retconning, abstainer works well if you can't play every day, and I gotta have skills!

Because I don't want to waste my recyclonizer, and my other donated items, I usually do an 'all items' run.

I also enjoy naturally hyper.

If you started all over again fresh from the start, what would you:

1) Save as your first permanent skill
2) Ensure that you found/made/bought as an item
3) Try to achieve as your first merit badge

In terms of skills - I'm a huge fan of the passive skills.

As a heavy skill user - I think I'd go for proper hydration which would give you a constant dribble of PP which would mean you can use those skills.
Meditation is a good one - means that you can play longer from earlier on.
Basic martial arts makes life easier cause you can then have a chance of hitting things with sticks.
Echolocation is useful to make finding items faster - so getting discs and computer parts is less painful

In terms of pay for skills - Healing is very useful - I like first aid. Alternatively fire shield often makes beating up the early minor foes much easier. If you're speedrunning - I think running Keen observation is a good idea.

Without points, Meditation is a pretty small boost. I'd go with Proper Hydration or Basic Martial arts.

Fire Within gets honorable mention as it also raises your max PP.

Meditation is pretty small boost even *with* all the points.

You know what. I actually wish I had chosen First Aid as I went Elemental as my next class and the lack of healing means I'm burning turns like crazy due to being hurt in fights all the time!

A good way to deal with Elem's low hp is to spend outrageous amounts of money on bandages, or spend a bit of money on bandages and a bit on an ambulance. Healing skills are for the weak!

Nommy gives good advice as Elemental and maso expert. I forgot the bandages - I only remember them for my maso competition runs.

I really miss all my skills when I go maso.
