Gold Star Phantom

I was just killed on level 20 playing as Gareth, at Warlord rank, with full 89 HP, wearing +2 Spartan Cuirass, by a Phantom in like 3-4 hits. I tried attacking in several directions, but I could not find him to hit back. Before this, I was strong enough to kill 2 griffins and a medusa.

Now that I'm dead, the Hall of Fame shows the Phantom with a big gold star next to his head. Does that indicate he's some special uber-Phantom or something?

I took a screenshot of it but I'm having trouble embedding it in this forum: http://plixi.com/p/69533375

Thanks for taking the snapshot! The Gold Star actually indicates that you were using a "secret character" when you played that particular game. Gareth (Dragonsbane) is a paladin in the Forgotten Realms book series. You can also play as Drizzt, and many other secret characters. There's a thread here where people researched and guessed and compiled a good list of the secrets I have added up to now (version 1.6)... Each secret character has something unique about them, from special skills to starting equipment upgrades. Enjoy!

Should be an update to Rogue Touch this winter/spring with a few more features, items, and secrets, as well as my "Rogue Touch EX" project, and Spirit Hunter Mineko. Going to be an exciting spring for Roguelike fans :mrgreen:

Thanks for the reply CD. I'm real excited about all those upcoming features. Hopefully I can get the amulet by then. :)

But with regards to the original post: Yes, I was aware I was using a special character and I had read the secrets thread. If you look at the screen shot, there's several Drizzt games listed (he's my fav so far) but none of those deaths are marked with the gold star. Is there some difference between them and the Gareth game?

Secondly, are there "elite" spawns of weaker mobs or was I just unlucky and the Phantom rolled exceptionally well?

You know, that's a REALLY good point! I just opened pic long enough to look at the Gold Star on the Phantom and never even looked at the rest of the character names on the list. Doh! :oops:

Strange thing is that it really should have "starred" all of the secret characters. Looks like you may have found a bug I need to fix. Maybe the secret character internal flag is not being saved correctly... :mrgreen:
