icon Game element idea: bomb-proof vest (+2)  
I had a dream about DROD, and one of the ideas from the dream seemed to be viable even after waking up.

It's a new item that can be picked up, a bomb-proof vest, that would make it possible for Beethro to survive a bomb blast. It would be ruined after a single use so a new one would be needed for each blast.

I wonder if this is scriptable.

(In the dream I was playing DROD, and the item was actually called a fire retardant suit, and there was a counterpart, a fire-proof mimic. The room I was playing had an exit to a secret room protected by bombs that could be unlocked with such a special mimic. But then the dream switched into first-person mode, so I had to go into a shed as Beethro and unpack the suit myself. I suppose this latter part would be out of scope.)

I believe it should be scriptable - I remember how there was an entry in the troll holds compilation in 2016 that was a scripted weapons arsenal, and one of the weapons was an extra life, so that the first time a roach ate you, the roach would die instead. I think you can script something on a similar principle (and probably having similar code/mechanics too) so that the vest disintegrates on the first explosion.
