Piercing throw sounds good.

Don't attack me if this was already posted, but what about combined team attacks?  It doesn't make much sense because the team members are so different, but it was just an idea to explore.

Perhaps with enough Aptitude, the Main will learn the ability to focus and combine the mental energies of his teammates into one powerful "mind blast" (though it covers a huge area).  It draws Psy points from all members.

Maybe it would make the game too easy...

A different way would be to combine the physical attacks of members who are within reach of a particular enemy.  This changes the dynamic though: team members can act simultaneously, instead of in turn.

What about changing the name 'Light blast' to 'Photon blast'? Light blast sounds a little... wrong, I think (at least to me it does) and we already have the prefixes 'cryo' and 'pyro', so why not have 'photo'?

Does anyone dislike the idea of Piercing Throw?

One thing: Piercing Throw should do less damage to the person behind than the person in front, because the person in front absorbed most of the spear's momentum, therefore slowing down the spear and dealing less damage to the person behind. Thoughts?

True. The energy used to launch the blade would diminish as it passes through it's targets, therefore, the person(s) behind the main target should get less damage.

You are over thinking it.  Dark Vortex doesn't do more damage to the guy in the center and the first guy hit by Slash doesn't get hurt more then the other guys.

No, Light Blast is better.  Plus, changing the name to an old attack isn't "New attacks for teammates".

Slash is continually getting more energy as it goes as it is still in connection to the user who is powering it. Dark Vortex is nothing more than gobules of dark matter hitting targets in a certain area, thus making them a bad comparison. Peircing throw, however, would lose connection to it's user thus cutting it off from it's energy supply. How's that?

You've got a point.

A vortex isn't "gobules of dark matter hitting targets in a certain area".  First, it is not made of dark matter.  Second, the corrosive miasma spins in a vortex.   In a vortex, the greatest spinning is in the center, so therefore the center would cause the greatest damage.

If Slash "continually getting more energy as it goes", then the last person struck would recieve the most damage.

And you are still encouraging spamming and flamming.
