Two Crazy Random Summer is the Summer 2019 special challenge path, introduced on May 15, 2019. This path adds variant rules and restrictions to an ascension run. Its description in The Bureau of Reincarnation reads, "All across the Kingdom, items have changed in strange and quasi-unpredictable ways!"


Divergences

  • Items gain random modifiers, noted by prefixes and suffixes on their name, and sometimes a visual effect to their image. See Item Modifier for the list.
  • Standardized enchantments on equipment are replaced by an equal number of random enchantments. Hard-coded enchantments are generally not affected.
  • Food and booze can gain modifiers to size and quality. Their normal substat gain/loss is removed, and they may give random substats. They lose any effect normally gained by consuming them, though they can occasionally gain modifiers that grant a positive effect.
  • All spleen items are size-1. They give random substats and some also grant a random positive effect.
  • Potions grant a random positive effect with random duration.
  • Miscellaneous items, combat items and familiar equipment are not altered in function.
  • All items can gain cosmetic modifiers, which change the appearance of their icon.
  • Some adjectives that are normally part of item names are stripped. For example, enchanted bean becomes "bean". This can be confusing for items like pixels or cases in which an adjective is also a noun, as with a moldy small wobbly. It can get even more confusing for NO TEXT.
  • The randomization is not actually random, but determined by the player's current class and moon sign.

Restrictions

  • End-of-combat meat drop is capped at 1,000 meat, to prevent the path from being used for meat farming. When hitting the cap, the following message appears:
Huh. You expected more Meat. They must have spent the rest on weird items to see what they do.
  • Standard restrictions apply while Two Random Crazy Summer is the current challenge path. These restrictions will be lifted on August 15, 2019.
  • All effects are lost when breaking the prism. No stacking up good effects to bring into aftercore!

Strategy

General Items
Interface
  • Unfortunately, advanced inventory sorting is disabled in the path and does not take into account randomized enchantments. In the web interface, before entering the path, you can set your consumables to be sorted by size/quality, which will conveniently display these properties on the inventory page. The interface to change sorting is not available while in the path.
  • If you don't want to see cosmetic effects, you can hide inventory icons by unchecking "Show Inventory Images" in the Options menu.
Mr. Store Items
Quests
Good Class/Moon Sign Choices

Seal Clubber/Opossum

Rewards

  • Players will receive a ring when they complete a run, which gains 1 random enchantment per Softcore run and 2 enchantments per Hardcore run.
  • Players will receive a Thwaitgold nymph statuette each time the complete a run.
