Re: Favorite Quest/Mechanic

Level 10 quest is my least favorite, because I get the most RNG hate on it. 60 turns just for the caves portion (this is after I had 2 of the caves x'ed out already) due to critical hits on me 3-4 times in a row. I have issues picking the right caves, and adventuring in the second area unlocked neve...

There should be an item that gives an effect which causes your stats to be from lifetime instead of current, for a single turn.

I also don't want to encourage this kind of play. I think most people would get bored with it and want to leave. It's a silly sort of competition to foster.

Fastest Retcon Time

Im interested in hearing opinions on this. Should fastest retcon be organized according days or time?

I myself lean towards time, therefore someone who is doing a food restriction as an equal chance as someone who isn't.

Re: Consumable requirements

I see this adding a fair more amount of strategy/planning for retcon pulls than the previous system of just loading up with a bunch of exigen/gumdrops/marshmallow blasts before retcon starts up. I am a fan of requiring more planning.

See i figured it could make you immune to poison damage (where it does 1 damage to you like it does for enemies), and then include items from all the other elements, obviously making it so you can wear them all simultaneously.

Re: Creative player ideas for in-game items, zones, etc.

What about an offhand item version of Prepunctuality, i.e. and item that randomly after combat will give you back another 30 seconds? Say it fired about 20% of the time but also increased your turn length by 5 seconds. Make it a required level 10 or 15 to reduce its necessity for speed runs.
