New personality idea for com/frog/cheng


Starts with extra money, $ piles found are 30% larger

Str +0
Int +0
Wis +0
Dex -2
Con -1
Chr +2

Life rating 99%
Exp 100%

Disarming --- Poor
Device --- Good
Save --- Poor
Stealth --- Fair
Searching ---Great
Perception --- Fair
Melee ---Good
Bows ---Bad

Not sure about balance, but it would be nice to be able to afford consumables basically whenever you need them, but still limited from black market purchases. Also I noticed no personality has +2 Chr except Unlucky

Thanks for the suggestion! To begin with, I didn't like it too much (what justification is there for the increased gold drops?), but after thinking about it a bit I'm starting to warm up to it. Everyone knows rich bastards just keep getting richer, right? So no other justification for the extra gold is really needed (and in any case, things like no-selling already affect gold drops in mysterious ways...)

And Noble is probably (possibly?) a better personality name than Rich Bastard.

I'm a bit surprised if finding money for consumables is a serious problem beyond the very early game, though.
The Complainer worries about the lack of activity here these days.

For me at least, it isn't the money for consumables, it is finding the consumables themselves.
Got cursed early, usually, no problem. Then I checked every town, not one remove for sale. sigh... just had to live with it for a while...

I think there comes a point where you owe it to yourself to sleep-scum. :-)
So you ride yourselves over the fields and you make all your animal deals and your wise men don't know how it feels to be thick as a brick.
