This could be a feature, actually. Real world pandas eat bamboo, right? Well, what if we add dire pandas, which will eat any kind of wood? Even going so far as to try to eat your shield while you fight them (if the shield happens to be made of wood).

So a bit like ye olde Rust Monsters?

...dangit I think I LIKE that idea...evil as it is.

How about this one - going up on the worldmap to go to a unique dungeon?

Would require the Belt of Levitation or the Levitating status, and instead of 'walls' if you fall off the clouds and don't have either, you instantly "fall to your doom" with no saving throw, similar to drowning.

Oh and another bug, bears eat wood. That's kinda weird.

Yeah, bears are supposed to do things IN the wood, not eat it.

Imps are crashing my game almost every time I kill one on windows. Both mirror and plain. I save before fighting them now, but if I do get a crash it keeps happening no matter how many times I try the same actions.

It seems like I have to let them die in a different place to avoid the crash but can't say for sure. Something on the ground may be interfering with their death effects.

You too?! I thought it was just me! Mirror Imps seem to do it most often.

Of course, the next version could feature a random chance to FAIL teleporting if Overloaded and either send you randomly or just 'fizzle' and do nothing.

Inventory management is a big part of IVAN, but there are times when you absolutely, definitely NEED to get an extremely heavy object from one place to another. Like one of the Meteoric Steel chests in the secret room to a nearby dungeon shop for a nice payout SPOILER ALERT. Click here to see text.
or the nuke thaumic bomb out of the Pyramid


Solution: Stack up on wands and scrolls of teleport, pick up the big item, and teleport. Repeat as necessary. Plan carefully based on your INT and how many total 'charges' you have on hand. Don't forget that the wands can be broken for one last use.

You can even get from one level to another while Overloaded! Just remember that while you can exit a dungeon with enough gear to outfit an entire army, you can't teleport in the wilderness.

That's actually the easy part. All the dungeons and towns are generated during worldgen, they're just hidden until you reveal them somehow. So we can simply check if there is any dungeon on the worldmap tile before generating a wilderness location.

Now I'm curious - could involuntary random encounters be a thing? Or does the engine only support static locations?

The Thaumic Bomb can be dismantled at a forge like any other item, despite being a quest-critical item. Needs to be marked as protected.

edit: and so can the Holy Mango World-tree seedling.

edit 2: AND the weeping obsidian shard.

edit 3: AND Valpurus' freaking Justifier?! +16 Okay so this isn't quest-critical but seriously, what the frog...!

edit 4: I am a noob with a capital N at Github, but I believe I've managed to find the relevant code and make a pull request for a proper fix.

Random items, stats, and attribute changes tied to certain character names.

Name your character after certain dictators and you spawn with high Charisma but crappy Int
Name yourself Homer Simpson and spawn with crappy Int, ton of bottles of Vodka and better Arm Strength.
Name yourself Harry Potter and have lower Endurance but higher Mana.

Oh, the FUN we could have with this one! Shoutout City!

34. Charm every single non-immune person in Attnam and lead them to safety before betraying Petrus. Take over as new high priest with zero collateral damage and dispose of any corpses/body parts out in the wilderness before you sit on the throne.

I did this on vanilla back in 0.50 on my Windows 98se computer. Good times.
