Big Fish is an Event found exclusively in Act 1, The Exordium. The player must select one of three goodies dangling from the dungeon ceiling.
As you make your way down a long corridor you see a banana, a donut, and a box floating about. No... upon closer inspection they are tied to strings coming from holes in the ceiling. There is a quiet cackling from above as you approach the objects. What do you do?
|Banana:||Heal 1/3 of your max HP.
If the player's HP is not divisible by 3, the HP gain is rounded down.
Max HP +5.
Like all HP gain, the extra hit points are healed when you get them.
Receive a Relic. Become Cursed (Regret).
You grab the box. Inside you find a relic!
However, you really craved the donut...
You are filled with sadness, but mostly regret.
The Donut is generally the best choice. The player probably doesn't need healing in Act 1, and Regret is a particularly nasty Curse.
If the path has more Merchants than usual, taking the Relic is safer - simply remove the Curse before facing the boss.
If you have Omamori with any charges left, it's a better choice to pick the Relic rather than the Donut.
