Re: Inventory Management Overview

I really like a lot of the ideas tossed around in this discussion. It has been very interesting. I think the best solution is infinite inventory with consumables not counting towards inventory.

What stat upgrade do you usually pick on your Octopodes? Do you go with Int to help with supplemental spell casting? Dex to help EV? Str to help melee damage/constriction?

What about having missile weapons behave like rods? They have a charge number and a recharge speed.

Re: Thunder dome!

When I encounter Lerny early I tend to use Speed + wands and that kills it quite nicely but uses all your charges. With my TrBe I used Might, Speed, BiA (2 or 3), and a couple wand blasts. I did that to conserve my wands although I did not end up needing them much after that anyway.

In my experience, FDA will hurt your stealth too much and make it more likely for you to need to either fight or run away.

Re: Ways to make octopdes less frustrating in the opening.

Being another poor player who enjoys octopodes I also really like the idea of a +1 or +2 starting ring of protection to replace the lost starting armour of certain backgrounds. I would probably leave the +1 built-in mutation though because I really like that flavour-wise and limit the ring to +2.
