Semi-Official list of Superlikelies

This is where you spade, shovel and sickle. Or is it reap?

Also, I'm pretty sure the Black Forest map is one. Not sure about the map encounters in the starter locations and the Friars Gate.

The friars map has to be one, as you won't avoid it even if you've turned off all the other noncombats in the zone.

Guesses for various adventures, adventure class and some rejection conditionals: (unlike the previous list, this stuff isn't necessarily true)

"delay()" means "rejects the encounter if less than X adventures have been spent in the zone so far this ascension, where the X values are determined for each zone at the beginning of the run". This is a moderately accurate description that at least captures the gist of it.

"already found" means "rejects the encounter if it's already been found this ascension. Often it's not possible to tell whether it's really "once only based on already-seen-this-adventure flag" or "don't have the item already".

"normal" means no conditionals attached.

Encounters marked with * are those I consider interesting to spade further, feel free to help out ;D
They're also even more likely to be wrong than the others.

What do you mean by "hard-coded"?

Adventure functionality realized by embedding specific functionality directly into a php source code file instead of using the game's normal encounter data structures. It's not a fourth class of encounter types, it's actually not a true encounter at all but something different and weird.

It really just means that it behaves differently from anything else in the game, and from a development perspective it's also more prone to errors and unintended consequences. It can do absolutely anything, which can be very good and very bad =)

Instead of

Code: Select all

superlikely manor_key
  name: The Manor in Which You're Accustomed
    checkflag: manorfound
  setflag: manorfound

you have

Code: Select all

player = get_player_structure(get_session());
layout = get_tavern_layout(player);
if (layout[$_REQUEST["where"]] == 1) {
  if ((get_player_name(player) == "LordHades15" && mt_rand(1, 100) < 90) || mt_rand(1, 100) < 10) {
    print_adventure("Raternal Bonds");
    give_item(player, item("ice-cold fotie"));
  } else {
    print_adventure("The Cask at Hand");
    give_item(player, item_from_zap_group("fruity girl drink"));

The examples are mostly made up, but the hades name checking bit is leaked code! ;)
