Title: More than Two Partners
Post by: Zackirus on July 08, 2010, 06:21:53 AM
We all know about the La'man the Red Spriggat and Rajav the Spearman but I was looking at headquaters the other day and I noticed something. Rahel, Set, and Malis all stand over cushions implying that is where characters sit/stand. However their are 3 Cushions empty not 2. Meaning their is a chance for a third extra party member. Do you think that this could be implying the that more characters are to come?

Yes. But Craig won't tell us any spoilers  :'(

It is likely to be a Wood-Folk (http://telepath.wikia.com/wiki/Wood-Folk).


Since this is a Wish List, what is your wish?

I wish that their would be more partners than in the second game *although even with the extra three (Rajav,La'man, and Suspected Wood-Folk) we would still need another 2 to match up with the second game.

Craig has stated that he doesn't want as many teammates as in TRPG2, but instead he wants to go more in-dept with fewer characters.

Quality over Quanity, I see, I guess that would make for a better game as the player could relate to one of the characters.

Most likely, the Wood-Folk character will sit by Set and Malis, seeing as how where Set sits the cushion is blue, and near where Malis floats the cushion is purple, and then there is an empty green cushion, which should be for the Wood-Folk.

I can't get bthe pictures on due to the file size but the poll is still up at the top for people to vote

Does matter where they sit?
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Zackirus on July 09, 2010, 09:38:35 AM
Yes because we are figuring out the game!

if we know where each team member sits we can figure out who'll they'll talk to, what "cliques" our team mates will get into. we can think of dialogue between the other characters... etc

Just for your information, folks, if Craig implemets the side-collab mission where one get's Gelf and doesn't make any major revisions, the idea is that Gelf will not come to reside in HQ, unlike the rest of the party, but, rather, would be found in a separate location. So one of them pillows might remain empty ;)

Then another character will take that spot... because TPA2 introduced  4 allies that had never been played before. The next partner you might get is a Shadowling Guardian (Retired of course) or any other powerful shadowling of the sort. What I don't get is that why is a Shadowling Guradian still around in TPA2?

Spoiler
Although it would be amazing to see Noctus join your party. I'm sure that within the four years that the Hero of TRPG 2 worked with the Shadowlings Noctus was revived and worked his way up to guardian status. However Extreemly Unlikely

See also the numerous Noctus threads floating around TSoG and TRPG1.
A teammate for each cushion would make sense but it isn't a necessity. I'd like another Psy teammate though.

Another Psy Fighter like yourself would be a good idea however what affinity would they be? If I had to guess it would be the polar opposite of what you have. For example: If you were Light It would be Cyro, If it were Shadow it would be Pryo (does that make sense?). I would also assume that the attacks would be Mind Blast, Mind Shield (?), Elemental Blast, Elemental Area Attack, and Feedback/Venegance(?).

You got it wrong, the polar opposite of light is shadow, and of cryo is pyro.
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Zackirus on July 13, 2010, 02:48:01 PM
I meant it in the way as the total opposite (Light and Pryo are Opposite Shadow and Cryo)

A clearer example is in my chart

I still don't get it.
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Zackirus on July 13, 2010, 03:53:26 PM
If You are Light he/she is Cryo, If you are Pryo he/she is Shadow and vice versa got it!
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Duskling on July 15, 2010, 07:59:12 AM
Actually, if you are Light, he/she should be Shadow, it balances it out, because if you are Shadow and he/she is Pyro, it seems pretty random.

Light/Shadow, and Cyro/Pryo are the opposites.

Post by: Zackirus on July 15, 2010, 02:03:21 PM
I know they are the opposites but I don't think it is fair if they are Light and Shadow and they have both Dark Vortex and Light Bomb, you guys know what I mean right
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Duskling on July 15, 2010, 03:13:53 PM
Will it be fair if it's Dark Vortex and Cryo Cross?
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Zackirus on July 15, 2010, 03:17:25 PM
Yes but Light bomb is a better move then Dark Vortex and Cryo Cross is better than Pyro Hail so in the end it could work out...
Title: Re: More than Two Partners
Post by: Duskling on July 15, 2010, 03:21:37 PM
They are all balanced in a way that they could all be around the same power level: Pyro Hail: Weak attack, closest range ranged attack, costs less Psy points than any other attack. Cryo Cross: Doesn't cost many Psy points, does good damage, but must be in close range. Dark Vortex: Good damage, fair distance coverage, costs moderate amount of Psy points. Light Bomb: Great damage, longest range, costs lots of Psy points, sometimes range may be too long. Get it?

Yes, but when we voted which element was the strongest we mostly picked Light and then Cyro, Shadow, and Pyro. See the poll right here. It is just a suggestion though. With that though I must say I was wrong with the Light and Cryo, It then must be Light and Pyro - Shadow and Cryo. It just an idea though.
