Re: Stupid ideas for 0.19

Implement IVAN's pantheon system of god worship:
-you are effectively worshipping every god simultaneously
-they all have their own likes and dislikes that often conflict with at least one other god
-you can receive wrath from any god who hates you at any moment
-you have to pray to a god to have them act, and the action they take cannot be chosen by the player (but is not necessarily random)
-the gods that hate you can send dwarf suicide bombers, and extreme hatred gets you veteran dwarf suicide bombers

This is better as new god IMHO (like Lugonu desecrated all altars of other gods). I wouldn't like to change all gods be Xom-like.

I know this thread title. I meant that this might be an interesting idea for real crawl and tried to justify how it could be implemented.

It would need a much smaller amount of gods for that to work. Like 2 or 3.

Something very like it works quite well in POWDER, albeit without the suicide bombers.

Re: Stupid ideas for 0.19

GDD thread about long range stabbing brought me an idea of "long time shot". You aim a tile and it takes 3 turns to shoot at the tile but the monster who is in that tile dies instantly in an explosion. So you can be a stealthy sniper but you cannot kill everything this way because of noise. Also it makes corridors, summons and portal projectile more powerful which is probably bad.

Bring back "Traps and Doors" skill for teleportation/shaft traps. Or even "Luck" skill which will help with teleportation landing, teleportation delays, multiple uniques per floor, overpowered player ghosts, randart properties etc.

This! I have a good formula for it: you have a (T&D skill) / (Dungeon floor number) chance for detecting/avoiding a trap. So on D:1, 1 level is enough for certain detection, on D:2 you need 2 levels etc. For floors outside of D, the level is the same as in the action table etc.

Also people should be able to choose less power and more control if they want. Something like CBlink or Stealth does.
Or more power and less control. Like Be in heavy armour.

Whenever your Str is increased (level up and mutation, not equipment/might/'zerk) you should get the message:

"You feel stronger, now. What bulging muscles!"

Add new potion: potion of 'roids. When you drink it, you have a 50-50 chance of developing massive muscles (+10 str, Formicid wielding), or to get haemorrhoids (sickness bouts, occasional bleeding status, start losing health if you spend more than 10 turns on the same tile, acquire tail mutation).

Make a thread in the tavern that is going to last far longer than the version named in the thread title, and which the thread actually has nothing specific to do with in the first place.

Re: Stupid ideas for 0.19

Today I learnt that immolation originally meant "to sprinkle something with flour and salt". So have scrolls of immolation do that instead! Increase palatability of chunks.

Source? Because immolation means to destroy something in a large fire, or to burn a person in a large fire, or to kill one's self in ritual sacrifice (usually but not necessarily by fire). Note the continual fire theme and the distinct lack of flour and salt.

I wonder if you didnt get confused by a recipe for frying chicken?

Re: Stupid ideas for 0.19

Nope, mola salsa was Latin for a kind of flour used ritually (mola also meant millstone). Since it was sprinkled on sacrifical victims (immolatio), the name for this action came to mean "to sacrifice something or someone". The fire thing only exists in English, apparently, although I didn't check all languages... Probably because of the holocaust kind of sacrifice (literally, holocaust means "completely burnt").

There are some wall tiles that show a slit at the height of your knees, from which the red eyes of an unknown creature spy your actions. I think that the player should be able to pee into these slits.

Slightly offtopic but it really bothered me when someone recently pointed out that protoss in starcraft 2 have nipples. They are an odd race which has never really been all that well explained biologically, but they have no mouths and are supposed to basically get nutrition as plants do - through sunlight, photosynthesis, etc. Leaving aside that I don't think sunlight would ever be calorically dense enough to support animal life, if they have no mouths they clearly can't suck on a nipple...

P.S. They talk through their hair. Not even kidding.

Some food-themed features:

Amulet of the Snackrobat:
Auto-travel always stops when a food ration is spotted. The ration automatically apports itself into your pack.

Spriggan Baker's Embrace:
Casting this spell causes a spellpower-dependent # of your food rations to automatically envelop you with a bready, meaty AND fruity armour coating. Monsters of animal intelligence will spend any turns while adjacent to you, trying to lick and chew off the armour until you're back to your non-buffed AC#.

The +12 Shadow Dragon Leg of "Didn't See THAT Coming":
Maces & Flails category. This deliciously seasoned, bone-in dragon leg has an extra 'to-hit' bonus due to the dark shadowy skin still attached to the leg.

Demigods: Greek heroes were demigods. Some gods helped them, and some gods tried to kill them.

As a result, demigods have all of the god's passives activated (as with full piety). However, they also are constantly under one god's wrath. The wrath-god rotates after a certain number of turns (not based on XP or such).

Based on Shtopit's idea new game mode suggestion: you get max-piety Halo from TSO, mutation immunity from Zin, Ely's protection from harm, Clarity from Ash, water walk from Beogh, +15 to stats (without slow movement) from Chei, max-piety Shadow Mimic from Dith, walking and shooting through plants from Fedhas, Golden Touch (including distraction) from Gozag, max-piety torment protection from Kiku, health on kills from Makhleb, max-piety Storm Shield (noise included) from Qazlal, miscast immunity from Sif Muna, MP on kills from Veh, rCorr from Jiyva, but you're permanently under wrath from ALL these gods. Enjoy.

Demigods worshipping Hep should have a god as ally, demonspawn a demon lord or an archfiend.
