I'm okay with that. But in the end it's up to CygnusStern to decide whether or not to add it and then what the cost is if he put it in.
That's a joke, right? Also, you can just call him Craig, if you want.

You don't think I don't know that? This is my last post in this thread until A) someone other than me or you posts or B) I get another idea for an attack to post about.

I don't think Craig is interested in developing a new section to the battle system (dice rolls) this late in the development stage. As you said, it's up to him though. I may be wrong.
Lets, instead, get to discussing damage, and possible formulation for this Fire Gust idea. I like it, and think it should have the formula
Damage= Attack Level*2+Psy Power
Attack level coefficiant can be raised to 1.5 if thats too high, I don't know how hard a hitter the spriggat is supposed to be, nor what his initial power will be.

Craig already used die rolls in the first game, so it's nothing new to him, and I don't think he wants us to win with luck, rather with skill.

What about a shield that makes a character completly invincibe for one turn?

About the Fire Gust -- have you noticed that while Blasts level damage at 2*level rate (or three in TSoG), but Area attacks tend to level at a simple 1-1 ratio with attack level? This said, it should probably be more like:


Attack level + Psy Power + 12

Dorgon: I don't think he does in battle stat changes.

Algebra15: Go ahead and see. I might not use the spriggat anyway.

In one of his videos, Craig said he is against dice rolling.


Do we all agree on Fire Gust and Frost Gust for the triangle Spriggat attack?

New attack for luca: Spiritual Doom

"As it turns out, Luca was concentrating on her name the other day when she discovered she could call spirits from the beyond and set them on a foe. However, it took a little while for them to arrive."

Damage: delayed 3 turns, psi power*5/2+attack level
Range: 1 space
Cost:4

Luca is a support unit, so Spirtiual Doom doesn't really fit.  Plus, if Luca could control spirits, then she would have had the cellar ghosts free her husband.


Contribute- Luca has become so skilled at transfering PsP that she can contribute PsP to as much as three teammates at once.
Range: 1 (the 3 spaces infront)
Cost: Psy Power + Contribute Level
Amount Transferred: (Psy Power + Contribute Level)/2
Status Effects: Target's PsP increases

OXXXO
OOLOO
OOOOO

L = Luca
X = Target space
O = uneffected space

Which "your"? Spirtiual Doom or Contribute?

Contribute. It was your idea. I wouldn't describe myself as "your"
