Ordinary Orange α

Skeletron Prime
So we've all been there, seeing a random lost girl in the caverns and then she turns into a nymph and attacks you.

Okay, not literally, but in terraria. It's happened to all of us in terraria.
But after that first shock you kind of come to expect it. See a lost girl, it's actually a nymph. No surprise.
But what if we changed that?

Oh and what if we had an NPC selling random cave loot?
This is the Lost Girl NPC. She has a 1 in 4 chance of appearing instead of a nymph when approaching a lost girl, assuming you don't already have a lost girl NPC. Here she is:

As you can see, I gave her some clothes. She's meant to be a teenage girl, but eeuhh...
She defends herself with throwing knives pre-hardmode and magic daggers in hardmode.
Anyway, shop items:

By the way, the random chest loot/potions will have prices equal to 5X their sell price.

So, you may have spotted some new items! And here they are now:

this is cool! though selling life fruit crystal shards and life crystals might be a bit <not op but it takes out the farming and searching of the game which i quite enjoy

overall a unique and fun idea

To be fair, the health-increasing items are sold pretty late into Pre- and Post-Hardmode respectively. The Crystal Shards I can see a bit of a problem with, but not with the Fruits and Crystals.
 
This is way too unbalanced.
Selling rare gems defeats the point of them being rare.
The random potion/gold chest loot is a bit weird.

Life crystals and life fruit shouldn't be sold, and if they must be sold not that early. By skeletron you would usually only have 200-300 health, so this would be overpowered. This would be even worse for life fruit, as usually after defeating plantera you would have 0-6 golden hearts.

The crystal shards are way too expensive.

Bronze wings should cost 1 plat like other wings. No need to sell the feather instead of the wings themselves.

The Mineral Infuser just doesn't really seem like a good idea--the extractinator giving out pre-hardmode ores was okay because they were relatively useless in terms of gear, but hardmode ores are actually decent gear wise.


The nymph wig is the only thing I would keep vertabim, other than perhaps the quotes.

The rare gems are not really required many, but Magic Storage mod has affected requirement.

The problem is that selling rare gems are not limited quantity, maybe another mod have a gem merchant too.

I also don't think that life crystals and life fruits should be sold, but life crystals cannot regenerate.

Crystal shards can regenerate and be farmed.

I think hardmode ores should wait crafting until hardmode.

However, hardmode ores are not really required many since chlorophyte ores can be mined.



This is the Lost Girl NPC. She has a 1 in 4 chance of appearing instead of a nymph when approaching a lost girl, assuming you don't already have a lost girl NPC.

As you can see, I gave her some clothes. She's meant to be a teenage girl, but eeuhh...

I prefer Friendly Nymph NPC, instead of she's only a lost girl.

Giving some NPC clothes seems to be able to test armor?

If she becomes a town NPC, I think it's more appropriate that she's at least 18 years old, otherwise she's too young.

That's it for now! If anyone else has ideas, please tell me!

And I have my opinions about quotes of the NPC.

> "Can I have some clothes? And can you stop staring at me until I get some clothes?"
> "Why are you looking at me like that?"

So is she afraid of cold or is the weather cold?

If I give her some clothes, but unfortunately she's killed, maybe these items will be lost or cannot be found.

If I star at her, I only can say I'm sorry that I'm over curious about her and my gaze makes her uncomfortable.

If she doesn't want to be appreciated, I feel disappointed.


> "Caving is, like, really fun when you don’t have a phone."

I have no idea why she feel caving is fun. It's really dark and there are many traps in cavern.

When I play Terraria, I don't know I already put how many torches in underground and cavern.
Ichor torches will be better for water-proof.


> "I used to live in a place like this before... you know..."

A place like where? Does she really live in cavern? I don't know why she lives in cavern. Does she also eat and drink in cavern?

If she is a human, she is possible in trouble. She can possibly be infected Wuhan pneumonia in cavern airtight space.

If she is a nymph instead of a human, I am not sure if a nymph can be infected or is immune to Wuhan pneumonia.

There are many bats really annoying in cavern in Terraria, because they move toward a player all the time if they can.


> "There's like, a REALLY big plant in the jungle, and I want you to kill it so I can get some of that weird fruit down there."

What weird fruit does she want? Is there really weird fruit in Plantera there?

I hope she will work together with me when I attack Plantera.


> "Why do YOU get a phone, but I can't?"

So does she needs a phone? Does she want to communicate or teleport to her own home?

I only can say to her "this requires many kinds of detectors being collected, and this is not easy".



I hope I also can make a mod about lost girl/nymph NPC mod.
I try to make myself friendly nymph mod, but it's not easy.
