About this mod

Allows you to set the RNG seed to select the first reward of your run. Can select any god boon or a hammer

Permissions and credits
  • Mandarin
1. Between runs, go to the courtyard (weapon selection room)
2. Open your Boon Menu (defaults to the "B" key)
3. Click "Select Starting Boon" in the bottom right
4. Change the seed or click randomize until the icon on the right shows the desired first reward
5. Close the menu and start your run as normal

Boon prediction assumes you have all gods unlocked.  If you do not have access to a god yet (e.g. Demeter) you may receive a different starting reward
