proposal: doom with bones files
- no saving
- if you die, you restart the level with pistol as normal
- but you have a chance to find one of your own corpses, with a subset of its weapons/ammo/health. maybe even a rare chance for a key. nearby monsters will stay dead/hurt
@eevee and you might have to fight a ghostly or zombified Doomguy to get them?
@keturn hell YES
@eevee Does DoomRL have bones files?
@Almafeta oh, hm, i don't know
@eevee Now I'm thinking of the ways you could add online interactions along these lines.
I love how Nethack servers let you run into the bones files of other players. Dark Souls also had a feature like this: if you died and let a lot of souls despawn, then a special enemy holding them would immediately spawn in another player's world where you died.
I think I just want Dark Souls style online interactions in everything.
@eevee do keys/weapons/other items respawn in their original places on the map?
