Taking Purple's Idea further:

Soldier/Wizard
Eldritch Knight
+ Unarmed attack = weak version of the Missile spell? (Cost mana.)
+ Great mana flow. (Better than the Wizard's)
> Wizard: More armor, Advanced weapons, Less focus on spellcasting.
> Soldier: Less armor, Gains [WMAG], Less focus on fighting.
- Can't use potions or be healed. (Including Life Elixirs and temp. effect potions)

I was thinking of a short-ranged explosiony sort of thing...
Where did you get the name "Eldritch", anyhow?

Since he can't be healed, he should regenerate.
For some reason I didn't think of him branching from the Soldier; that words too. But he should also branch from the Adventurer.

I got it from a computer game, of course.
Anyhow, he can heal himself by drinking from wells, or eating.
Which reminds me, I ought to start making edible items.

I was going to make cookies, you recall. Very Happy
...if I ever get around to it.
We definitely need more food. We could even have a hunger system.
But I'm going way off-topic. Anyway:

If he can't drink, he shouldn't be able to eat, either.
It should just say "%n absorbed the %t. It didn't seem to do anything."
...Unless it's a cookie. Because cookies have MAGIC!

Anyway.
I don't like the idea of stealing something from another game (although Wikipedia tells me it comes from D&D, and I always say "if you're going to copy from something, make it D&D"; even though I've never played it, everything comes from or to D&D at some point, it seems). And I liked my name. Sad

But yeah.
I think:

Animate Armor
Recondite Panoply
Animate Panoply
Recondite Armor
Steel Arcana
Aethercraft
Metanid

...Any of those would be cool. But if people (or maybe even just you, although... I'm making it, right?) think yours is better, that's good, too.


Also, remind me again, what IS mana flow? Embarassed

I don't think there should be a hunger system.
And we are on topic again.
I don't really know what mana flow is either.

[offtopic]
I never suggested hunger! That's a horrible idea! And it's reserved for Soulfu, as well!
[/offtopic]
I think it has something to do with mana recharging. But Purple, what do all of the stuff after "animate armor" mean? And I don't think we could make an animated armor suit unless it was predetermined to be able to be animated.

[offtopic] Nobody was blaming you; it was just a random idea I had. And "reserved for Soulfu"? Lots of games have hunger, most notably Nethack.
Anyway. It was just a thought. Yikes. [/offtopic]

They are all suggested names for the Hero we were discussing.
I really don't know what you mean by that, and I'm assuming you have not read enough of the thread.
So I suggest you do so.

I meant Mana recharge.

Mana flow is your casting ability, how quickly you can spend mana. Usually high level spells (Whirlwing, etc) require a good deal of it.

And yea, I got Eldritch Knight from a D&D computer game.

Mana flow can be explained like this:
Mana flow = Caster level.

A level 3 lich who has 7 mana flow, casts spells like a level 7 spellcaster.

A level 14 adventurer with 8 mana flow casts spells like a level 8 spell caster (even though he is level 14).


Mana flow determines control and how much you can charge a spell up. For every mana flow point for example, you can summon up 1 missile with the Missile spell. (max 5 missiles)

Ahh, I get it.
I wondered how that worked.
I feel so uneducated. Shocked

...Or... Previously uneducated?
