ImpHP
 
Is the Improve hit points modifier ever used anymore? I've played through v3.4.1 about 4 times now and haven't seen a single item to make my ImpHP row on my Character Sheet teal. Just Curious...

EDIT: teal. I was thinking they lit up green

I think that's actually supposed to be "impair HP regen" and it's on the Ring of Open Wounds. Unfortunately the 5-character limit makes it hard to come up with a concise and recognizable abbreviation.

Ahhhh... That makes a lot more sense. :) I could have sworn it used to raise your HP a flat amount. Considering I don't think I've ever even put that particular ring on, I understand why I have never seen that line lit up.

It suddenly occurs to me that this tag gives us a negative attribute other than aggravate to play with.

It does, doesn't it? And speaking of which, why not throw in another one or two, we could have some weapons and armor that act in a manner similar to the ring of open wounds, ring of the dog, etc.

There could be a reckless attacks type ego weapon, hyper powerful yet you take a serious hit in the AC (and/or possibly CON)

Or maybe the polar opposite: An ego label for whatever piece of armor that makes you a walking panzer but drops your attacks per turn, or however you wanna nerf your attacks, actually better yet slows you down 10 or 20. As though you are in an impenetrable suit of heavy heavy armor, forcing you to slowly trudge through the dungeon.

And a fitting pair of artifact shoes, "Wheels on Heels", which halves all speed penalties and allows you to crush smaller enemies. After all, why be a walking panzer, when you can be a rolling one?
