Re: Get to name the next combo - challenge

Since no one has won the last combo in a while, I'm just going to name a new one arbitrarily and try to restart it!

Combo: TrFE
Special rule: You may not train unarmed combat. Anything else goes.

Just keep running and be liberal with teleportation. Should hopefully be a breeze with a stealthy character like this.

Make forms toggleable, but give a lot of contamination or draining whenever you change form. Also make contamination go away with experience gain to avoid players being able to rest it off.

You only get the god title if your invocations is the highest skill, and training something to 27 locks the title to that skill. (Unless you use knowledge transfer, apparently).

Tis could be the seed idea for a race which changes its aptitudes/innate mutations based on what god it worships. EG angel when worshipping good gods, profane servitor when worshipping evil gods, some other forms when worshipping neutral or chaos gods.

Re: Comborobin

The point I was trying to make is that there are only about five or six titles that involve completely useless skills/god switching, with 300+ combos left. There are also sure to be more high level duplicate characters as we get to higher % completed. So a good use for the duplicates is taking risks...

IMO it should be impossible to starve to death with food in the inventory; if your last action would kill you due to starvation, it should instead become an automatic "eat smallest bit of food in inventory" action.

I like early game more myself - I like crafting a character that I know can win. After that it's not as interesting because I feel like I've already won and the only way I can die is by carelessness. So it's pretty nice when someone wins a character I've set up.
