Rakky is part raccoon and prefers food stale for some reason. Fresh food is now considered unripe. Unripe food has stale food effects on hunger (66%) and health (33%), and spoiled food effects on sanity (-10 if sanity value > 0).

Stale food has a 1.2x multiplier on hunger and 1.5x multiplier on health.


Rakky is too focused on adventure, so he is unobservant to incoming threats. Rakky will not get a warning of hounds, giants, krampus, or Charlie.



As Rakky, you'll likely will have prepare food ahead of time. Since Rakky doesn't gain sanity from eating unripe food, keeping sane could be a challenge. Sleeping becomes useful for recovering sanity if you have lots of food.

Berries and vegetables spoil faster if cooked. Meats spoil faster when raw, though meats other than fish damage sanity when eaten raw. Raw fish is very useful (especially in Shipwrecked) since it spoils fast and is safe to eat. Additionally, food spoils faster when placed on the ground, though you would have to watch out for other mobs taking it.

Awesome! All is awesome, this character is just awesome! If the drawing of the character selection screen was better could become part of the game! I love the concept! 


PD: But the draw in-game is pretty awesome too!!

The thing that puts me off is the whole auto catching the boomerang perk. Not only do I actually enjoy doing that, but I fear that removing that danger would make combat way too easy, especially when combined with a walking cane. I feel like kiting even giants would become a simple task without much need for concentration. Personally I'd drop that perk and replace it with 50% reduced damage from failed boomerang catches or something, if possible.

But I'll still give this character a try, just because it's amazing other than that. :p
