Question about a potential Shout-Out. The first skill in the Unarmed Combat tree, specifically, its icon. Is it just me or does that look a lot like Mike?

Got a screenshot of said character in the same pose?

I can't recall how far back we saw Mike shirtless in Shortpacked!, and their archive isn't the easiest to search. But the eyes and hair look mighty similar to me.

The character in the icon is the male hero, so a general resemblance of eyes and hair are not going to do it.

Well, Mike is male. :P (Bottom left panel, on the left.) But fair enough. This is for me going to be one of those "CAN NOT UNSEE" things though.

You know, after some research, I'm torn as to whether the Killer Vegan entry is Awesome, yet Impractical or Awesome Yet Practical. Yes, the debuffs are pretty nasty, but animal-based monsters won't attack you first, and the fact that you can't get their experience without said debuff is somewhat mitigated by the fact you can get experience by eating fruit. Then again, there are legitimate downsides. Besides the aforementioned debuff, almost all of the best food is meat and/or dairy based (Dire Sandwich, Deep Omelate, Grilled Cheese Sandwich), and several players on the Steam forums have complained about the now-passive animals blocking doorways.

Well then maybe it's neither. *shrug*

I'm inclined to think that it's Difficult but Awesome - it requires some planning and actual skill that means for most players it appears as Awesome, yet Impractical, but with enough experience it's one of the better skill trees.

I dunno, none of the skills in it are difficult to use. All you need to know is "Don't eat meat or dairy, and don't hit the cute animals with melee attacks" and you've pretty much got it.

If we're talking Difficult but Awesome, I'd be thinking more of, like, Vampirism...except I'm not all that convinced it's actually awesome once you master it, although in fairness I haven't really played any serious vampire builds. Or maybe Necronomiconomics cuz it has those debuffs and necroburn to juggle...but it's not that difficult, is it?

Nah, not really. Necronomiconomics (or however you'd like to call it) is pretty powerful on its own, and later in the game the debuffs aren't that much of a bother.
