Designer Vines

Description With life all over the planet taking a hit, it seems especially decadent to engineer a set of vines to act as pants. For all that they may be tasteless, they're actually incredibly sturdy.

The attached care instructions suggest they should never need to be cleaned or repaired but warn that "covering the vines in organic material may result in unwanted growth." Hopefully that doesn't apply to using the vines to cover your organic material.

Zack's House of Coins, originally released for Season 16 for two unearthly coin.


Sometimes after combat with Vile Camouflage or Dripping with Gore active:

The vines around your legs writhe and grow, eating away at the sludge painted over you.

And sometimes, while etheric:

You can almost feel them burrowing into you… or nourishing you.

You learned a new Technique: Take Root

And sometimes with a vine spear (while etheric???):

The spear in your hand writhes, seemingly in tune with the retreating roots.

You learned a new Technique: Piercing Vine

Lose 5 turns of Dripping with Gore and/or Vile Camouflage?

And also, occasionally, after using Take Root?, depending on where you've been adventuring:


As the roots retreat back around your legs, you notice a bit of fungus growing on them.

You found: vine fungus

Aboveground, outdoors:

As the roots retreat back around your legs, they leave behind a small vine sprout.

You found: vine sprout

Aboveground, indoors:

As the roots retreat back around your legs, they leave behind a bit of mold.

You found: brick slime


As the roots retreat back around your legs, they leave behind a slimy bit of sea vine.

You found: sea vine

Note: the type of vine that drops is not guaranteed to match the location where you are currently, but seems to be on the basis of an average of where you've been adventuring lately or something like that.

If you win combat with Set Roots active, no shirt equipped, and no energy of Vine Shirt, it gives the following:

The vines grow up over your chest, knotting into a strange armor.

You've gained 10 energy of Vine Shirt.

If you already have Vine Shirt active, it silently tops up your energy of it to 10.
