    Give yourself some credit. Your suggestion still pointed me in the right direction- the problem really was an unusual character.

    I wasn't talking about the characters at all, I was working under the impression that part of the game's RNG system was inherently flawed and possibly very lazily made, which given that this is Gaslamp we're talking about isn't that valid of an assumption.

    But thanks.

    No. Don't use double quotes. You should know why.

    I have no idea what this will do, but it's probably hilarious.

    Errors corrected, update incoming. Wow, thanks! I'm glad all the errors are finally getting weeded out. In future, I should really be more careful.
    oh god how did that happen

    As for the additions, I had assumed I'd added "ultimate form" and "facebook" taunts already, but apparently not! I'll add all four.
    (I did have a "final form" taunt but it's dissimilar enough)

    It's easier to find obvious XML errors with a proper XML editor. I personally use Notepad++ with the XML Tools plugin.

    Hm, alrite. I'm using the default Notepad right now, so that'd probably be an upgrade.

    As for the taunt, I added it as well as an accusation of junior heroism.
    A couple of those are already in, in varying forms, but I added the ones that weren't.

    What the ... I have no idea what that even means. But good to hear that 3k has been hit. You have made a nice monster of a mod. :)

    Wouldn't the best way of telling be to find the first entry in the base game taunts and mess with it like you did the first entry in your taunts?

    The best way of telling what? All the problems with the taunts not showing up seem to have been fixed already.

    Woops, I think I missed a round of posting here - jumped from 'there's an issue' to my last post without the middle posts :|

    I bet you thought I'd run out of taunts!
    BUT NO.

    In honor of Wizardlands Day (it is today... right?), here's another 449 taunts, making an even 3450.
    Download's in the OP as always.

    T... this is a monstrous file of taunt.

    It menaces with spikes of taunt.

    I feel like we need to add more to the base game now to compete.

    Since yesterday, when i started a new game with this mod, i barely see any taunt at all.
    I saw taunts i never saw before, but... just once every mid hour, or so.
    And i finished a 15 floor run, so i saw the oral ability of dredmor's minions.

    I'll keep an eye open for anything out of the ordinary,

    Still, I don't know how my mod would reduce the frequency of taunts. Haven't heard that one before.

    Maybe maybe maybe... it's because of the new mob system? Since they don't see you the most of the time, they just have a few turns to spam.
    In most trials yesterday I saw some of the new taunts, but they (vanilla or by your mod) pop up very rarely.

    I opened the taunt list and I saw some taunts on the same line. I ENTERed every single anomaly, and now it seems it's working better, there are more taunts from the mobsters ingame.
