Here you can find Gollum for DST :)

This character is inspired by Gollum from JRR Tolkien's universe. For this mod we have imagined that this is Gollum long before he ever met Bilbo and Frodo. Gollum will not speak of hobbits. Instead, you will see Gollum make various references to the creatures from Tolkien's books, such as goblins, orcs, trolls, and Ents.

Gollum begins the game with the "mystery ring", which is his special indestructible item, and also with 4 raw fish. When the game starts there is a custom introduction where you find that Maxwell wants The Ring for himself. Even worse, he wants to take the ring from Gollum's corpse!

Hunger: 140
Health: 140
Sanity: 160

speed: +30%
damage: - 25%
hunger drop: -20%
Sanity drain in night: -50%

Slave of the Ring - Gollum is so attached to the ring that he doesn't ever want to lose sight of it. He can't put the ring down on the ground, nor put it in a chest or backpack. Only death can deprive him of the ring. If Gollum resurrects after death, he will have a sanity penalty until he finds the ring again.

Loves Meat - Gollum loves meat, especially raw. Also he eats monster meat with no penalty. During the decades spent underground, he would eat any kind of meat he could manage to score. Meat provides a different bonus for Gollum than the rest of the characters from the Don't Starve:
*Raw meat: +(5 to 10) sanity
*Cooked meat: no gain or loss to sanity
*Monster Meat: No penalty to sanity

Passionate About Fish - Gollum's favorite food is fish, both fresh and cooked. Gollum became incredibly skilled at fishing with his bare hands during his hundreds of years spent underground. He can't use fishing rods, but with his bare hands he can catch 1 fish PER POND every 3 DAYS. Additionally, Gollum receives a higher premium for eating fish than the other characters:
*Raw fish: 37.5 hunger, +21 health and +20 sanity

Fruits and Vegetables? Bleh! - On the road to becoming a wild creature, overwhelmed by darkness, Gollum lost his taste for eating fruits and vegetables; he can only be satisfied by meat. Eating fruits and vegetables results in a penalty to sanity:
*Fruits and vegetables: -20 sanity

Clamped Stomach - spending years in the depths of the earth, Gollum got used to going longer periods of time without food. Gollum's Hunger drops about 20% slower.

Faster! - Gollum learned to move very quickly to get what he needed and stay out of trouble. Gollum's movement speed is 30% higher.

Weak - Burdened by the dark power of the Ring for so many years, Gollum lost his strength and became more and more limited. Gollum deals 25% less damage in combat.

The Night Creature - Gollum is accustomed to darkness and the night, and feels much less discomfort after sunset.
His sanity penalty during dusk and nighttime is half that of other characters.

+ Gollum becomes invisible to creatures (as long as they were not in conflict with him before he used the ring.) This helps Gollum to avoid strong opponents and many dangers. There are only two conditions, when he CAN be attacked after using the ring- Gollum can be killed by Grue and the ring will not hide him from periodically attacking hounds. If you want to hide from the hounds, you must lose them after they arrive.

+ While using the ring, Gollum can steal items in dangerous spots without alerting nearby monsters.

- While using the Ring, Gollum can't attack animals or monsters. (Gollum is worried that someone might notice him and steal the ring.) This is necessary to balance the invisible feature of the ring, otherwise the player could exploit the ability and become unattackable during normal combat (and would basically become invincible).

- When Gollum uses the ring, it's power will drive him to madness. During use, Gollum automatically begins to see hallucinations and nightmares. Furthermore he loses 2 sanity per second, making this item both useful and dangerous for Gollum.

- While in the grip of the ring's special power, a screen filter appears, which significantly narrows the field of vision and makes moving around the world more difficult, especially at night.

! When Gollum dies, he drops the ring on the ground. When Gollum is revived, he gets a sanity drop until he regains the ring. He can also lose the ring by fighting a Bearger, MooseGoose, or frogs.

*Custom Maxwell intro
*Custom sounds - Gollum has a set of unique sounds, which (according to legend) are based on the sound of a cello at a low octave.
*All custom lines - over 1100 custom quotes including DLC lines.
*Map icon for Gollum and for the Ring
*Portrait and a full set of images in the menu
*Mod Configuration Options!

Q: Why doesn't his name start with W?
A: Because "Wollum" sounds really stupid.

Q: Why am I seeing incorrect food stats while using Display Food Values mod?

Q: Are you going to update him to "Together"?
A: Yes, of course. As soon as possible.

Q: When can you fix the crash with putting items into full chests, backpack or chester?
A: It was fixed and updated on 15 September 2014.

@Hippiefisch Thank you very much. It's really hard to fix all the bugs especially if there are multiply reports on the same topic ;)

Just wanted to say you it's possible to put the ring into the telportator in adventure mode. Somebody said you couldn't but that's wrong. Just don't forget it or it'll get really hard in the next world.
Great mod, really enjoyed it.

@Potatoes you right, I didn't get it sorry. As for the SW I can't tell if it will happen for few reasons but it's still possible :)
Potatoes Apr 12 @ 10:42am 
Anyway, speaking of sw you ever gonna plan on making him compatible with that?
Potatoes Apr 12 @ 10:41am 
? Ok so what? someone before me said that sw had one true ring i just said it was a reference because it seemed you didnt get it or something idk.

@Potatoes Did you researched publication date of the mod and publication date of Shipwrecked? :) I came up with the name of the item 445 days earlier that Shipwreced was published :D
Potatoes Apr 10 @ 7:41am 
Im late to this but the "One true ring" is a reference to the same ring in this mod.
