With a penalty to your next combat due to distraction, a la Munchkin?

Actually some 1-time penalties in JJ's list of punishments wouldn't be a bad idea. He currently has corrosion and weakening that are permanent, mana burn and poison which last until you level up, and health drain which can be dealt with by exploring (but is pretty devastating if you also get hit by poison or if you're a late worshipper and exploration space is limited). Having some one-time effects that don't rack up long-term penalties would round things out a bit.

A Goomba Berserker?! How'd you get that?

Secret unlockable monster race. Didn't you know about it? Of course, the Goomba Crusader is the best.

Aren't you funny.

But what would some other one time bonuses be? Lost inventory? Slow strike?

Lost Inventory could be game-ending (ie, Warlord loses CYDSTEPP or Wizard loses BURNDAYRAZ or Rogue loses Alchemist's Scroll) so I think that's way too steep. Slow strike would work, but here are some others:

Next spell costs twice as much mana (reset on level-up)
Take double-damage on next attack (reset on level-up)
Next monster you attack gains a level (double-edged)
Next monster you reveal gains the life steal special

Not really, it would just drop the item on the floor until you could pick it up. The same happens when you can't carry all your preparations.

As for the double damage, just make it -50% resists to keep it simpler.

How's my resolution, then?

Any way I could get a better one? :)

Actually I too would like some advice regarding how to optimally screen cap avatars from DD. Mine end up begind around 120x120 pixels, which is too much for the site.

Just use a program like IrfanView to resize the image.

It would be nice to have a gallery of all the portraits without the class ability icons, though.
Have a mug of tea.

Yup, especially if they were also available in forum size. ;)

Maximum size for the forum is 80x80.

I just use paint for my purposes. I crop it down to 120x120, scale it to 66% size, then save as jpg.

There we go, thank you Darvin. Although this isn't the Goblin Paladin I will atleast be more regonisable.
