Default Video demo of Absurd Area, LL2 world in progress

http://wombat.platymuus.com/ytembed/?code=M7pB19x-_zY

Hi! I've been working on an LL2 world recently. I'm trying to make a world that is fun, challenging, and has some unique things you've never seen in LL2 before, such as:
* A flexible upgrade system - instead of getting Skills and Talents in specific places, you get Upgrade Points which you use to select an upgrade from a list. Create your own progression!
* You know how you can't place much equipment in the editor; the best you can do is tag a regular axe/parka/amulet? Well, I cheated. My world will have you finding all sorts of stuff lying around, some of it magic. And even one secret already-sharpened axe so you can get to some areas extra early...
* You can change the early bits of the game with modifiers! If you choose the Knight modifier, your starting axe does 4 damage and your amulet gives you 0 magic. Gangsta makes your parka have 3 defense and your axe 0 speed. Literacy gives you +35% spell damage but your parka has 0 stamina. These can be combined too, but they don't work if Heir is on. Toy makes all your equipment terrible, and it DOES work with Heir - so if you really WANT to, you can start with terrible Golden equipment!
* Bunches of secrets! Several secret areas with plenty of loot and Objective Points. Some quest givers are cleverly hidden.

Anyway, I've put an explanation of the Class system in a spoiler since it's long.
There are 30 upgrades in 6 different categories. Each upgrade gives you a couple Skills or Talents.

CIVILIAN - These upgrades give you no real combat or magic abilities, but boost you in other ways. Don't overlook them! With one exception, you can get any of these at any time.
Explorer - Mobility, Scavenger, Survival, Tracking
Merchant - Haggling, Miser, Packrat, Luck
Craftsman - Alchemy, Junksmith, Clockwork, Training
Expert (Requires Craftsman) - Herbalism, Mining, Mixology, Toughness
Scholar - Meditation, Mental Focus, Energy

SOLDIER - Three different combat classes. For each class, you must get the upgrades in order, but you are not restricted to one class - mix as much as you like.
DUELIST - Skills and Talents that focus on taking down powerful foes.
1 - Chopping, Stun, Bash
2 - Critical, Strength
3 - Criticism, Defense
4 - Poison, Parry
5 - Arsenic, Axe Trap
GLADIATOR - Skills and Talents that focus on taking on hordes of enemies at a time.
1 - Sneak Attack, Axe Mastery, Vampirism
2 - Endurance, Persuasion
3 - Stoneskin, Stomp
4 - Whirl, Air Strike
5 - Knockout, Flame
RANGER - Skills and Talents for ranged combat.
1 - Tossing, Throwing, Static
2 - Shatter, Dodge
3 - Vivacity, Piercing
4 - Ricochet, Triple
5 - Finesse, Homing

MAGE - Two different categories, Enchantment (useful magic) and Sorcery (destructive magic). Each has 5 levels. Purchasing a Mage upgrade allows you access to BOTH the Enchantment and Sorcery upgrades of the next higher level.
1
Enchantment - Green Thumb, Lifeberries, Ignite
Sorcery - Freezing, Cryozoid, Drain
2
Enchantment - Green Thumb, Brambles, Restoration
Sorcery - Scorching, Toasties, Gale
3
Enchantment - Green Thumb, Shroom, Cold Wave
Sorcery - Spookiness, Bonehead, Bone Bomb
4
Enchantment - Windbag, Berserk, Heat Shield
Sorcery - Electrocution, Shock Orb, Stone Spike
5
Enchantment - Windbag, Tornado, Plague
Sorcery - Combustion, Burninate, Ice Cube

Feel free to leave comments and suggestions. I will update more when I have more content to brag about. I hope you enjoy the finished product!

Incidentally, if people want to playtest what I've done so far, that could probably be arranged.
