About this deal

If I Do Not Return: Before facing Vrah and her siblings, Carl entrusts Donut's safety to Zev in the event that he gets killed. Reforged into a Minion: The eighth floor allows squads to collect up to six more "recruits" by beating monsters nearly to the point of death and then marking them with special flags that convert them into summoning cards. He repeats it on the fifth floor during a specially designed battle that goes beyond the typical scripted boss battles.

Frank lost a hand to a trap, and he was drunk during race selection so even though it could have been healed by taking the right race or class, he was left without it after. Glass Cannon: Donut is actually stronger than Carl, but with miniscule Constitution, so she can't properly fight in melee. She makes a decent Squishy Wizard, though. On the fifth floor, she actually takes on the "Glass Cannon" subclass. Insistent Terminology: When Donut accuses Hekla of firing arrows at Katia, while she's attached to the Nightmare Express, Hekla repeatedly reminds Donut that they're bolts, not arrows, instead of defending herself. Boring, but Practical: Carl states outright that his preferred mode of operation is "quiet efficiency," contrasting with Donut's much more stage-friendly persona. Against single enemies, he punches or stomps them. Against bigger or more numerous enemies, he blows them up with cheap explosives. No messing around with magic or poison. Ironically, his "boring" methods usually result in huge catastrophes that level cities and nearly kill him as well, making him at least as entertaining to viewers as the more charismatic Donut. This time, the survivors are all split up into different bubbles. Which means Carl and Donut have to work with the tools at hand. And some of them are real tools. Plus, it looks like the System went for level averaging, so the others in our team's space are under-leveled and some have been coasting.


The Meadowlark residents. These are septa-, octa-, and nona-genarians who were all on the edge of death from old age. Those that made it to the third floor got new races and classes that rejuvenated them, quite literally, and gave them a lot of power. Tip of the hat to Elle McGibbons, who made it to the top ten with her ice princess class/race. Portal Cut: Donut gains a spell called "Hole," which simply puts a temporary hole in a material. Carl's "Surprise Three" is for her to make a hole, drag something through it, and cancel the spell so that the mob is cut in half. They aren't sure it will work until they actually try it. It does work, letting Carl kill an otherwise very powerful warmage with ease.

The Hunters don't turn on each other, but Carl notes that their tendency to work alone and scatter in the face of a threat makes them easy meat when the tables are turned and the Crawlers unitedly come for them. Carl: Celebrating? You call this celebrating our culture? You're exterminating us and profiting upon our ashes. Rule of Cool: Like Jurassic Park, the books portray velociraptors incorrectly. They were about the size of a turkey, not a horse (albeit six feet long, with the tail). However, they're just so damn awesome this way. Evil Gloating: Actually justified when Hunter Vrah has Carl in her sights; they're being watched by a galactic audience, and she wants his death to send a message. She still doesn't spend very long talking, but long enough to be a mistake.Mordecai: I don’t care what it is. If it’s a Carl idea, it’s probably a brilliant idea that’s going to get you killed. Without warning, in an instant, every man-made structure collapses, and the planet is seized by the interstellar Syndicate to be mined of all valuable resources. The few surviving humans are offered a choice: eke out a living somehow from what remains, or enter the World Dungeon, where a live audience will watch as they battle through eighteen floors to reclaim their planet. Too bad no one ever wins! You gotta fight with vigor, with excitement. You gotta make them stand up and cheer. And if you do have that "it" factor, you may just find yourself with a following. That's the only way to truly survive in this game—with the help of the loot boxes dropped upon you by the generous benefactors watching from across the galaxy.
