This person now says... I heard the strongest monster, known as the "Egg Dragon", hid an item related to it.
Originally, I wrote "hid" as "has", but I feel like that implies the Egg Dragon is currently in possession of the item, rather than "You need to seek out and find this item." While this changes the story ever-so-slightly, I feel it conveys that you need to go and find the Egg Key to continue this quest. Any thoughts, Swordmaster?
Is it not possible to write it like this: "I heard there is an item related to the Egg Dragon, which is the strongest monster."? This is the closest to vanilla that I can think of. But if you think the hint needs to be clearer, how about: "I heard about a key which is needed to find the strongest monster, the Egg Dragon." I think I prefer the latter. Not to say that your suggestion doesn't work. It just doesn't seem like the Egg Dragon had anything to do with the whereabouts of the key, or at least that's not clear. But what do you think?

Awesome! I was actually going to address this. Now I don't have to. =) I was going to say that I really like it, if only <insert issues> were fixed. I can't wait to try out the new patch.
And now for a more productive use of my time (that is a very foreign concept....)
First of all, "Make A.C. 200L."? I really can't think of a better solution, though. Secondly, "Ancient freak"? Really, Wain? What does that even mean? I like "Roguelike freak", but that's sort of fourth-wall breaking. Since "Ancient Cave freak" probably won't fit, maybe "A.C. freak"? lol, or maybe ditch "freak" altogether and go with "masochist"? And lastly, another "..." with no space after it. There are so many of these. He even did it right in the very next text box! These are all really just nitpicks, though.
Another line implying only one weapon.
Two more Egg Dragon oddities. The chest containing the Egg Sonar is the only chest in the game, as far as I know, that doesn't chime by using the Chest Sonar. In addition, if you leave the room without obtaining the Egg Sonar... well, I hope you didn't want it. Eggy will never offer it to you again. And in the second image... defeating Egg Dragon will net you an Ice Attack scroll at a rate of 100%, as far as I know. ...What?! Could it be any more random?! Surely it's a mistake. I wonder what you're supposed to get, if anything. Who even knew you could win scrolls from an enemy? I mean, it could have at least been Fire Attack. Sorry, I know this is beyond the scope of the project.
Not an error. I just wanted to say that I love this description. I don't know why this one stood out, or even if this is vanilla or not (lol), but it is perfect. It's too bad there isn't enough space for everything to have a perfect description. Now... there is another reason for this image. Is it possible to fix the attribute abbreviations? REG --> RES, CLT --> CRT, etc. I am choosing to be an adult by not making a comment about that last one. It's not easy for me to pass up a joke. lol
Not an error. Did you add Jerin's name? If that was you, nice touch! I like it.
Uh... Those damn reptilians. ::effeminate voice with a lisp:: "I'm a sssnake~!"
lol, someone forgot to register a trademark. Now we got knock-off Metal Mails. Yes, I sold all my items except for these two just for a side-by-side comparison. Besides, I only use gear with the word "metal" in it! That's how hardcore I am. A wise man once said, "You can't kill The Metal. The Metal will live on." and "The Metal will strike you down with a vicious blow." May the D live forever.
...I apologize for the sightly higher level of crazy. lol, I probably need to sleep more.... At any rate, my time is up. Until next time. ::bows::
