    • Epigene

      Epigene Space Hobo

      Standard Passive: Nicotine Patch
      -Order Description: Promotes a sense of wellbeing over time, increasing attack speed the longer the survivor has the patch on him/her.
      -Order Details: I know you are trying to quit, Hon, and with your stressful job, I though you could use something to help you along. Just give it a try and let it work its magic.

      Maxes out at 25% (10% more max than Soldier's Syringe) increase at 28 minute possession. Additional stacks increase max increase by 7%?
      Time in possession of the Patch is fed into the formula:
      The result (which follows a modified root graph) is multiplied with the maximum attack speed increase as a coefficient to get the actual increase.

      Priority Passive: Pacemaker
      -Order Description: Gives a jolt when the going gets tough, increases movespeed by 1% for every 17% health missing.
      -Order Details: Found this thing on a corpse back in the slums. Don't ask. You mentioned your gramps could use one so I figured, what the heck. I know, I'm all heart.

      Maxes out at five stacks with 5% movespeed increase, same as Burning Witness, but works in tight spots only, so is situational and grants no offensive bonuses, so I feel it is balanced.

          Folder of Pictures

          On use this item makes all enemies attacks effect each other for a short time, the damage they deal to other enemies would be 70% of what they would do to player (not counting armor and such)

          Cool down 60 seconds, effect lasts 10, doubling effect of embryo makes them all do 170% damage to each other for the 10 seconds.

          "What are you part of his fan club?"

          "No, that would be your MOTHER"

          Just kind of always wanted something that would make the enemies hit each other, no aggro involved though!

            I was thinking maybe droids could have a small chance to malfunction when purchased, attacking you. when defeated, they could drop 80% of the gold you spent on it. Or 50% just for the irony.
            Maybe medical droids could do the same thing they always do, except their healing beam would hurt you...?
            Idk. Anyway!

            Lemurian Pathogen (Active; Passive)
            It has some unexpected side effects...
            Turns you into a lemurian for 6 seconds, making you 65% faster, with only 80% of your current health.

            If your character has less than 80%, his/her health regenerates
            -Tail whip: Knockback all enemies 4 character lengths near you, for 8 character lengths-No damage-Rendering you immobile and invulnerable for 1 second
            -Bite: Gnash closeby enemies for 50% damage, and stun them for 1 second.

            This item adds speed, and knockback power-along with a little damage-while taking away max health for 6 seconds. It is useful in tight spots, and can be used to spread out enemies with it's tail whip.

              A white - common item that when picked up lets you see the item list in the pool and cross out one useless item. That item never shows in that run. ;) Picking again the same item lets you cross out another useless one haha. :D The most needed item IMO because the item pool will grow and getting what you want is going to get increasingly difficult.
              Edit: If you have items that you later cross out those turn into random new ones of the same tier as the one you don't want or item stand/s are created with a question mark that let you buy one or several completly random ones.

                        Stasis Drone [Drone]
                        Activation Cost : +++++
                        Health : +++++
                        Regen : +++++
                        Effect : +++++
                        • A drone that fires a stasis beam at nearby enemies, slowing them down. The effect is not instant, as it would take time exposed to the beam depending on each mob's size for the effect to take hold. Once in stasis, the enemy will be slowed down by 20% for 30 seconds.
                        Bio Force Drone [Drone]
                        Activation Cost : +++++++
                        Health : +++++
                        Regen : +++++
                        Effect : +++++
                        • A ridiculously expensive drone, (Think of having to farm the entire stage for funds, and having to pass up on a few chests in order to be able to afford it. Where a Tier 3 drone would cost $1000, this one would cost $2500) but a very powerful one. Every 30 seconds, it shoots out a massive green ball of plasma death that constantly explodes for a starting value of 400% every second, increasing the radius a little and damage by 40% with each subsequent explosion until at 10 seconds, it explodes for 1440% damage. The projectile fired starts off slow, but slows down even more with every passing second, until it halts at 10 seconds. Has a 5% chance of spawning in any given stage, IF drones spawn at all. (Based on the Doom BFG9000 weapon.)
                        The Wildcard [Active]
                        Cooldown : 60s
                        • When activated, this item will mimic the effects of a previously unlocked active item, chosen at random.
                        The Chaos Engine [Active]
                        Cooldown : 60s
                        • When activated, this item has a 50% chance to mimic the effects of a locked active item, chosen at random. If less than 2 locked actives are found, or if the 50% chance of mimicking failed, then it will mutate ALL of the passives in the player's inventory into another passive item, chosen at random.
                        Synergistic Device [Tier 2 Passive]
                        • Gives drone attacks a 2.5% chance of counting as a player ability. (Useful when used in conjunction with proc items.)
                        Distortion Field Generator [Tier 3 Passive]
                        • Acts like barbed wire with a few key differences. It has a 1.5% chance of turning enemies on themselves, and the field grows larger as a function of how low the player health gets and how many stacks of these they find. When players die with this item on, they will implode spectacularly, causing a massive explosion of 666 + (10 x number of items in inventory at time of death) % damage with a radius as big as the range of the Greater Wisp. This implosive outburst is capable of harming both other players and enemies. In addition to that, it leaves behind a shadow being with the exact same stats, abilities and items of the fallen player that chases other players relentlessly. (Spawns only in co-op, serves as a "Your death will get us killed!" sort of item.)
                        Crucifix [Tier 4 Passive]
                        • Assuming that the player has no items that increase or amplify the natural regeneration rate, this item cuts down all of the player's natural regen rate to 0 plus 10% more. When the player dies, the item will break and the player will revive at the teleporter site. To unlock this, players must beat the game in co-op in Monsoon difficulty without using Drones. This item will only spawn in co-op mode.

                                  I don't really want to reply to a really old post, but I have a great idea for it! It could increase regen or damage based on difficulty.

                                          Order Details: Managed to prise one of these out of the hands of the carcass of one of the local scavenger races. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot to it: it looks basically like a spatula. Ruined the morning fry-up, though. Hash browns tasted like tin. Maybe you boys can figure out how a gadget this simple is capable of energy weapons tech that's been eluding our species for decades.

                                          Order Details: Take some of these out to the archery range with you; they're UNREAL. Apparently it's an epinephrine-like substance produced by the bacteria-analogues in Pluto's subterranean oceans. Shoot one up and you can see water evaporating. Just make sure you only take one at a time, and keep them nice and spaced out; Mark popped three in ten minutes and swore to us all afterwards that he was trapped in limbo for six days.

With the very first sip, you'll begin to feel your body forget the aches and pains of the day! These statements not evaluated by the FDA.

                                          Order Description: When no cooldowns on skills are active, seconds begin pooling (up to four). When a skill is next used, its cooldown is reduced by as many seconds as are in the pool, and those seconds are removed from the pool.
