TSoG Wish List / Re: New attacks for teammates

How about "spirit leech" or "spirit drain"?

(I doubt that Craig would do that. w.r.t. facebook)

Psy bridge may be too complicated to code, but the idea is interesting.

So, Duckling, is that a "yay" for the idea?

Hehe, "vivacity drain" equated to facebook, interesting!

PS
"fatigue"?
"stamina exhaust/deplete/diminish"?

I thought about that- but then we are not draining the soul here- soul drain is a synonym for soul suck really. I guess we're looking for synonyms of words like "vitality" and "sap/drain/suck" or "decrease", a continuous process, which does not terminate- that would be the best, methinks.

I totally agree, I just simply couldn't come up with a better name!
Can yee good folks suggest a better name for the attack?
What we have so far:

Luca
-"Energy Drain"
-range: 1
-PsP cost: 6
-enemy health reduction formula (psy attack+ attack level/2 )
-effects: reduce max enemy health

Learnable at circa level 12 Psy Attack.
Explanation: "Luca figures out how to drain/dissipate energy from her victims, making them physically weaker." Not unlike Zem the Reaper's attack. More subtle, hence requires more skill.  


(Great, we have 4 "yay" so far!)

Mmm, the range on "energy drain" can be 2- like soul suck, but more subtle that (like smashing a pumpkin versus carving out eyes and a mouth).

kitty- what do you think of "energy drain" (I already voted on shadwo knife, so can't say much more, I'm afraid)?

Well, that's just simply a well-kept secret! ;)

Moiraine is my friend, she understands that I am doing a highly important field study, y'see, and I am helping her develop a new generation of focus pills.

Ah, getting old, getting old, I meant to talk about  "xiem", not "ert"! At least part of you exists in Vietnamese!
When I tried to answer the almighty question of "what does ert" mean, the almighty google along with almighty babylon's free dictionary suggested estrogen replacement threapy... does this mean you are not a he, as is well speculated around??

Hm, that's unusual behaviour. I suggest you ask him some questions about it- if he continues that way, call in the cops and an ambulance, that mirror person might be hiding something!

Wow, BFB, or, these days, APoC got it spot on, the skill and daring there!

So, "Energy Drain" gets a yay from you? :)

Let's put some stats on it- say it costs 6 PsP to lower enemy hp by 12 initially. Say, with each 2 new experience levels she adds on extra hp to lower.
(Formula like: Psy Attack level+attack experience/2 . If learned at, say, Psy Attack 12, then it's pretty simple. Though I am not really into damage formulas myself.)

No one. Or, rather, the Bug itself?

Who would join a just cause of ensuring everyone uses proper grammar and punctuation on these forums?

How would she do that?
So you suggest a decrease in the Psy Defense?

Ok, here's an idea: why not give Luca an attack which lowers the max hp of the target (a bit like Zem the Reaper's attack)- effectively a variation on her Soul Suck, except it isn't fatal.
Luca figures out how to drain/dissipate energy from her victims, making them physically weaker.

Again, this attack messes with enemy AI- it forces them not to move or act during a turn- we had suggestions like that before, and we still haven't heard back from Craig about possibilities into tinkering with the enemy AI. Thus nay.


PS
Maybe, for those who have played, we can get some inspiration from TPA2? What did you find was lacking there for teammates of different classes?

Nope, you're just too shy of asking that question. Don't worry, the answer is 42.


What do you want?

C'mon, Duckling - at least you're trying ;)
And it's good to see different suggestions.

Now, let's be logical about who needs extra attacks and who doesn't. Let's assume part, if not most, of the formulated ideas get into the game.
Thus, who do you find is lacking in attacks and for what reason?

Let's have a look at all the teammates in general:
-what abilities/traits are they lacking, have an imbalance of (e.g. speed, flying)?
-how about the elements, are they well balanced?
-do we have enough of different classes on the team, can the team go both offensive and defensive?
-do we have enough powerful 1 tile attacks?
-do we have enough area attacks?
-do we have enough special abilities?
-any of the teammates seem too weak/strong? What about during different stages of the game (let's attempt to extrapolate here)?
-etc
