Icon progression memories The Timeles Wood

Memories are small stat buffs that, once applied, allow a hero to persist across multiple runs.

Heroes with memories will always reappear at The Crossroads at the beginning of each run, retaining all their previous attributes including their names, cosmetics, skill loadouts, paths, quirks, and diseases.

A hero gains access to one Memory slot for each Confession Boss they defeat, up to five total. After each run, successful or failed, six new memories are generated; these may be added to any currently empty slot. Note that heroes with empty slots but no memories (that is, after completing their first run) do not persist and will be subsequently rerolled at The Crossroads.

Memories are lost upon death, or upon abandoning a run while not at an Inn. The player may also choose to manually reroll a hero at The Crossroads, removing their previous memories and attributes.
