Telltale Heart

"One last chance"

Adds one item to the game: The Telltale Heart!

When you pick up this item you will be revived upon death with the health of The Lost, meaning you will die in one hit and get free devil deals!
This revival happens after all other extra lives with the exception of Missing Poster and Guppy's Collar.
If you find another revive item and die after being revived by the Telltale Heart, your health will return to normal (and you'll have to pay for devil deals again)

You also get +1 luck and a soul heart when you pick it up :P

This mod also gives The Lost visible health.
UPDATE: The Losts health now changes with Holy Mantle!
UPDATE: You can now see how much extra lives The Lost has!

For the record: It's not the same as Missing Poster, you respawn as the character you currently are.

Made possible by the help of the kind people of reddit, most notably u/Fastoonwarrior, u/magnificentvincent and @Pum and @Hollow (aka Guppy) on the discord chat.

There is a slight bug where if you have HUD Offset on then the sword and the heart don't line up properly.

The name is a reference to Edagr Allen Poes' short story "The Telltale Heart".

I like the reference but it does seem a bit at odds with the sprite for the item.

so, this is a reference to "Don't Starve Together", isn't it?

@sawbladex it works by pretty much doing the same as what the lost does, making your health always be 1 heart (or 1 soul heart when youre blue baby). And i could make it work before the trinkets by checking if the player has the trinket but i think its fine like this

This is a really interesting mod. I like that it is a res item that does something before you kick the bucket, and that it makes characters mimic the lost. (And I'm actually kinda interested in seeing how you do it.)

(Oh, and trinkets and passives overlapping functionality is as old as WotL, so don't worry about it. (Infestation and fish head, and pinky eye and common cold.)

So this is basically a global Missing Poster

@0-3 sad onions Yeah kinda, i actually came up with the idea of reviving as the lost before the missing poster did that, so i changed it into this.

I even made a sprite for it back then ;P

You can turn your health back to normal though which you cannot do with missing poster with most characters once you're the lost

It's still very similar, though.
