Armoniel is a devilish new character who is prepared to make sacrifices in order to gain power. Quite devilish indeed- He can only encounter Devil Rooms! As long as he lives, the light of an Angel Room will never grace him after a grueling boss fight. However, he is primed to make the most of it. He starts with a whopping FIVE hearts (four red, one black) and a Goat Head, plus any Devil Room he enters is guaranteed to have at least one item on offer. So, there's plenty of opportunity to be had in Deals with the Devil. As for Key Pieces, just ask some of his friends in the Devil Rooms (with a bomb).


The Sacrifice

Tainted Armoniel is a new, subversively tricky character with a lot of potential. He starts with SIX (?!) red hearts, high speed & damage, and a new pocket-slot active item. Pedestal items he encounters are often accompanied by a second one, which costs a heart container. He can also sacrifice heart containers with his active item to trigger a Diplopia effect, turning meat into EVEN MORE ITEMS! The thing is, he has a troubled relationship with HP, as he can have no more than six hearts of any kind, and he can't even pick up red hearts from the ground! Plus that active item of his doesn't just take away heart containers, it replaces them with broken hearts, effectively making his maximum health even smaller. What this all means is that you can grow powerful quickly, but getting carried away will come back to bite you later! Strike a good balance, and success will be yours!

Can you successfully tap into the dark powers to overcome the bosses and unlock new items?

Grabbing pickups, besides hearts and batteries, hurts you now! Worse yet, pedestal items all cost a heart container. Ouch! At least the Shops are still normal.

This mod comes with a few console commands for locking/unlocking its content.

arlocktaintedboss - Same as arunlockhardboss, but this command "un-beats" bosses as Tainted Armoniel.


Q : Is this compatible with co-op?
A : It should be! Everything has been designed/reworked with the possibility of multiple players in mind. While this has been tested, the testing wasn't exactly extensive.

Q : Do I need to unlock certain vanilla content before this mod can use it?
A : Content from this mod can provide indirect access to locked vanilla content, with one exception: The new challenge can only be accessed if you have unlocked the Womb.
