Usage[edit | edit source]

Standard Use[edit | edit source]

  • 4 random items from the generic item-givers pool are shown. You can choose 1 of the 4 items to receive, which causes the Imp to lose 1 of 20 "charges", then if the Thieving Imp hasn't lost all "charges", it moves to a random other player's inventory. This use resets the turn counter for the passive effect to 3 turns.
  • The Imp is removed from the game if reaches has 0 "charges". If it enters another player's inventory due to Standard Use, the 3 items not chosen are still available for the next use, though the chosen item is replaced with a random item from the pool.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There can be repeating items within the 4 items shown by the Imp.

Passive Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Every 3 Effects Phases (beginning on the 3rd Effects Phase after this item's creation), the Thieving Imp steals an item from the player and moves to a random other player's inventory. (Note that the items for the Imp's standard use won't change due to this.)
  • The Imp tends to lose a "charge" when the passive effect activates, though the admin Dysprosium has stated the coding for this is a bit random.
  • The 3 count isn't reset when the Imp moves between inventories by means other than its own effect.
  • If the stolen item was a Deadly Item, the Imp dies and is removed from the game instead of moving to another player.
  • Soulbound items cannot be stolen by the Imp.
  • The Imp still moves to another player's inventory if there is no item it can steal.
