theservantofcygnus asked: I had my session do a test run of the black king. We actually almost won - except right now we're stuck with him at 1%, unable to damage me or the one person left standing with me (2 of our 7 players) and our other 2 original players can't get back in, with the one who wasn't there originally being able to sort of bug in in a wierd normal style battle. In short, this is stupid. I've expended far more than I planned to on a run of a boss that I now see is horribly glitchy, and I was hoping 4help.
I talked to the Overseer about it, and he’ll certainly look into it. You essentially beat him, so I went ahead and marked your session as having done so. There aren’t any other rewards at the moment, unfortunately, but you guys have officially beaten SBURB, congrats! :D
Also, let me know the usernames of any of your players who are stuck and I’ll do my best to unstick them posthaste.
Anonymous asked: what are the chances of a dungeon imp dropping a strife specibus?
Normally, every imp spawned in a dungeon has a 1% chance of having a strife card. With your luck stat maxed out, that chance increases to 5%. You can tell if an imp has a strife card by its description; look for the statement “It also appears to be wielding X”, where X is the weapon name. Its power level will be increased by the power of the weapon as well. Good luck!
Anonymous asked: Could you make thoughtlessRenegade (from "Version Zeta" session) the head admin? Either we didn't have a head admin (it's an OLD session) or he simply hasn't played since the update.
Wow, that must be one old session if you didn’t have a head admin! Anyway, I’ve done as you requested!
Anonymous asked: I seem to have somehow acquired a second strife specibus. Is this intended?
If you got it from a gate 1 dungeon fighting imps, then yes. Some of them wield weapons and drop their strife cards when defeated. If not, then no and it’d be great if you told me how you managed to obtain another one :P
Anonymous asked: This is internalwrath from the session Boop. While I was dungeon diving, I found a Fetch Modus upgrade but I can't pick it up because my Fetch Modus is too small. This just seems kind of like a contradiction, considering I can't really upgrade without picking it up.
You probably encountered one of the higher level upgrades. They were meant to be found/used in order, so each upgrade has the maximum size the previous tier of upgrade will allow. The first tier is Huge Items, so be on the lookout for that. If you’re still in that dungeon, you may want to make yourself a Captcharoid Camera so you can snap a ghost image and save the code for when you’ve used the other upgrades.
Anonymous asked: I'm a Rogue of Space. My echeladder is maxed out, but I cannot fight 5 sets of 5 "Construct New Building" on Prospit without reducing my health to 0. Since dream strifing is the easiest way to earn boondollars , this is a bit frustrating. Is there anything I can do to change this? (in game name readinginthestarlight)
Your options are somewhat limited as your dreamself, since you must rely on only your unarmed power and aspect abilities. A Rogue is a passive class, so your effectiveness in strife is slightly reduced as the main strifer, but if you’re willing to spend a bit of aspect vial (which you’ll recover when you go back to sleep anyway), you may have a chance. Your potential for direct damage is pretty good, and your multi-targeting is not bad either. Alternatively, you could try power reduction on a single enemy, then change the focus to the fifth enemy so that the one with reduced power is moved to the bottom and you will take less damage overall.
If all else fails, though, you might just have to accept fighting only a handful of buildings and make the rest mail deliveries.
Oh, right, you’re a Prospit dreamer. Pretend all those strifing terms have quotes around them. :L
learn-tilde-ath asked: I am in the dungeon for the giant glitched gate, on the 5th floor. There is no gate or boss here. I have encountered the bug on the 4th floor before, and that worked fine. Is this just the same "sometimes dungeon bosses/floor transportalizers don't spawn" bug? Or is it a bug specific to higher levels of the The Bug dungeon? I was hoping there would be another transportalizer, to take me to the 6th floor, because I was curious if it led to a different boss.
This would be the same bug, yeah. Also, I’ll go ahead and say that the Glitch Dungeon doesn’t have a second boss yet, and I’m not sure if it really needs one, as difficult and optional as it is.
feferipisces asked: hey so i'm cottonCollector from the session Rise Above and absoluteCapriciousness accidently made their sprite way to strong! i tried to nullify their prototypings but the sprites are still way overpowered. is there anything you can do? i still want them in the session but the overpowering messes up the game
There’s nothing we can do about the power level of the sprite itself, but it’s not a big deal. Once a player’s prototyping is nullified, the only thing they’re affecting with a high sprite power is themselves. If you’re worried about balance, note that the effectiveness of the sprite’s power is reduced drastically near endgame as you begin to fight enemies and bosses reaching 20,000 power or more. I think in the near future, we’ll work on making the sprite even less effective as it’s meant (canonically even) to only be a way to get the player on their feet in the beginning of the game.
