Evil Twin (D)

Acting on some inscrutable impulse, a parallel version of yourself travels through space and time to destroy you.

Each time you embark on a new location, there is a small chance that a parallel version of yourself has tracked you down and attempts to destroy you.

When a creature with Evil Twin spawns or moves to a zone that they haven't been in since obtaining Evil Twin, there is a 5% chance that an evil twin of them will spawn. If the originator is the player, a popup appears that says:

You sense a sinister presence nearby.

The evil twin is a complete copy of the character, including items, skills, and mutations, with the following exceptions:

  • The twin does not themself have Evil Twin.
  • They are aligned with highly entropic beings.
  • They are aggressive, meaning that it takes more reputation than usual to pacify them.
  • They are initially hostile to their originator.

The player character getting killed by their evil twin unlocks the achievement Your Better Half.

Evil twins of creatures that are part of a party will also be part of that same party. This may override their hostile feelings towards their originator.
