Character Idea: Waldo the young Adventurer!

Recommended Posts

This is my second idea, so DON'T EXPECT ANYTHING PROFFESIONAL.





Nickname: The Kid Adventurer


Motto: "I do believe it's time for adventure!"



Starts with: Bush Hat, Beefalo Hat, Back-pack, Miner Hat, and 'Waldo's Spear'



Waldo's Spear



Waldo's Spear is a variation of the Spear, obviously. It has infinite uses, and deals 27 damage, and gives Waldo a speed boost in movement.




Any source of light lasts 1.5x longer.



Has an awkward kind of Arachnophobia, meaning Spiders, Spider Warriors, Spider Queens, Spitters, Cave Spiders, Dangling Depth Dwellers, Crawling Horrors all make him lose twice as much sanity. With Crawling Horrors draining it faster, they are even more of a threat. Even Spider Glands and Spider Nests drain his sanity, but only while holding it, or by it respectively. Spider Nests are the source of several Spiders, so being near one is very dangerous with his Arachnophobia.



*Note*: This Debuff was made to counter-act the amount of items Waldo starts with.





Sanity: 180


Health: 120


Hunger: 100


Melee Damage: 1.0x



Waldo is voiced by a 'Pan-flute'.


Waldo is pretty much a normal character with his quotes, other than with going crazy with any thing related or looking like a spider.

Trivia: Waldo's Aunt's name is Klei backwards.





Help, critism, ideas on what to add and all that most welcome! Please let me know if there was something you wanted a quote with Waldo for.



I personally feel a bit of the starting equipment is OP.


I also apologize if something like this was done already.

Thats way too much. With the exception of maxwell the characters start with maximal one special item, and maxwell is the reward for winning this game.

Especially the Beefalo and Miner hat, that save you quite a few days before winter which is pretty much the only difficulty in don't starve.



Waldo's Spear is a variation of the Spear, obviously. It has infinite uses, and deals 27 damage, and gives Waldo a speed boost in movement.




total overpowered, you know that, right?


None of the characters start with a weapon, except for maxwell, and you can already kite every single enemy in the game with just a regular spear.


And the debuff is pretty much a joke too, even if you consider the -30 health.


Trivia: Waldo's Aunt's name is Klei backwards.




His Perk isn't game changing either, willow already has a infinite light source, so there isn't much sense in adding a character with 1.5x light.


Your character is just a boring character with a handful of starting items (you would require more then 5 days to acquire them with other chars, even way longer if you don't know this game that well!) and a cheating item.


Sorry for being so harsh, but if you want to cheat, just cheat.

Please don't.


That thread was on the second page when i answered it! I haven't looked at the date. Sorry for that, on other boards threads on the second page are maximal 2-4 days old, not a month.


I guess that forum isn't very active anymore if threads on the second page are already a grave :(
