Kingdom of Exploathing is the Fall 2019 special challenge path, introduced on August 15, 2019. This path adds variant rules and restrictions to an ascension run. Its description in The Bureau of Reincarnation reads, "The Kingdom has been blown to bits!"


Divergences

  • The main map is replaced with a selection of floating locations.

Quest Progression

"Your sense of justice prevents you from freeing the King without dealing with the Invader that destroyed his Kingdom."

Path-Specific Store

  • The path-specific store Cosmic Ray's Bazaar sells consumables, path-specific items, and quest-essential items.
    • Some items in the bazaar can be bought by using rare Meat isotopes, which can be obtained for 1000 Meat at the Bazaar (or less, with Five Finger Discount or sleaze jelly).
      • The Council awards 10 rare Meat isotopes for each "chore" (quest) finished, for a total of +110.
      • Players gain bonus isotopes at the start of their run for their previous Kingdom of Exploathing ascensions, +10 for each Normal run, +20 for each Hardcore run. Start-of-run bonus is capped at +100.
    • This store sells Daily Dungeon keys for fat loot tokens and the digital key which costs 30 white pixels.

Combat

You feel your organs shriveling up from oxygen deprivation.
HPYou lose ~20% of current max HP, rounded up hit points.

Aftercore

  • The Council will give you a strange leaflet.
  • Any attempt to return to the Exploathing Main Map gives: "The whole world has not exploded yet."
