Yeah, but a bit too obvious. Maybe you could adapt the Search function? Like if you search near a door, you can get a prompt that it is trapped. Maybe add a perception check too, so doors made out of hard material have traps that are harder spot

You need a way to spot if it is trapped then.

If one uses a weapon with two hands, if one is artificial and has obscene dex, and the other one isn't, then does one attack with the speed of the natural arm?

The point? More leverage, namely, when used when wrestling to deal more damage like break bone or to free your weapon in a bind. That's just one thought.
When wrestling is added in IVAN, sure, but it doesn't have that. The system is much simpler.

So wouldn't duel wielding two weapons double your damage output?
You don't see people duel wield handguns, melee weapons while they're not nearly as precise as guns, they wouldn't be just twice as effective as using one weapon in two hands.
It does, I think. At least it is very effective. A lategame IVAN character usually has insane dex, so why wouldn't an extremely dexterous person be able to use two weapons effectively? Even in the real world people used two weapons, to have more combat flexibility and to be able to parry much better. The damage and STR isn't everything.

Though I'm sure if you had super strength, using a weapon would still help with piercing damage or range. You would just break the weapon really fast as the drawback; thus you'd want a tough weapon like a mace or a club.
STR already influences weapons enough, I don't think there is any need to complicate it. Weapon breaking according to STR could lead to unplayable games, as some characters reach >400 STR with artificial limbs

I also thought that one-handed weapons should be made into two-handed weapons because you can put both your hands over each other on the grip.
Dual wielding one-handed weapons is, well, kind of silly - handles on one handed weapons aren't designed to be used with two hands. Try to use a knife with both hands. And they don't generally require much strength to use, so what's the point anyway?

Edit: The main problem is duel welding. Only the most gifted of ambidextrous would be skilled enough to attack twice as fast when dueling vs using one weapon. Unless that's not the case in Ivan?
Only dexterity influences attack speed. As far as I know, if you double-wield, weapons attack just as quickly as they usually would if you one-handed them.

He can harden only the materials that are related to him, if I remember correcty

Why not add some additional optional goals that would add a small multiplier to the final score?

I'd love to participate, but my life has been a mess for the second half of 2019, sorry

Found a bottle of warp fluid, what does it do? I am doing to well to try to drink it this game, and i am too busy to try and wish one up in wizmode to see what it does.

If you go to the bottom of Attnamese Catacombs, you might find someone carrying a hexagonal/octagonal key, too.
Is that random? I only got hexagonal keys, while all the meteoric steel chests had octagonal locks
