Not exactly enough time as it turns out. But I’m making good progress.

Soon! (If work/college didn’t interfere as much things would go a lot faster.)

I am however working on it and once all the skills are worked out as well as the first level (with tutorial enemies!) then things will start taking off.

Yes you can keep it, but when used with 0 energy it will always deal 1/2 the damage of a normal attack.

Why? Shouldn’t it only deal 1/2 damage when used at range? If used in melee and with 0 energy, isn’t it exactly the same as a normal attack? There shouldn’t be any reason for it to deal half damage in melee too.

My bad, I should have clarified better. It does 1/2 damage at range when using 0 energy, and full damage at melee with 0 energy.

Yes, normal attacks don’t cost anything and are free skills (same thing with latching onto enemies and shaking them off of you.

Hey, Gamma, is all of my Stat’s and skillz and what-not working and how you want them?
Just making sure.

You’re good, though why’d you give your basic attack an energy cost of 2?

Did you make up your mind on whether my Wind Blade ability should be allowed to have a cost of 0 and still function as a ranged attack? That would be a ranged attack that hits for 0.5 * base attack of Air damage, which doesn’t seem overpowered to me.

I was actually thinking of allowing everyone one alternate normal attack regarding that. Basically an attack that costs 0 energy to use, but have a small cooldown on (They won’t be more powerful than a normal attack in the sense that it will almost always be a risk using it over a normal attack.)

Alright, it’s noted :D

Rest assured I’ll make sure skills are at least somewhat balanced :P (If you can one-shot a boss something is wrong)

I’m working on it now actually.

(Question: Why didn’t my engulf/compress attack work? Was the dragon’s mouth too heavy to forcibly close? Or did it still have enough power to overcome my attack and open it’s mouth still? Wait? Did it fire it’s beam through it’s closed mouth (as it can just pass through)

Azorel Nilm
I sit back from my makeshift snowfort watching the battle progress in awe at how well our team was doing. Sure Q had gotten captured, but she easily managed to slip through the dragon’s claws and attack the dragon with a series of spikes. Metalvine also gets in a solid hit on it’s wing causing the dragon to fall. However after this, everything seems to go wrong as the dragon still manages to fire it’s breath weapon harming Shion, and landing directly on top of Metalvine. Thoughts raced through my head as I ran towards Shion. You promised to protect her. Is she badly hurt? How could you be such an idiot? As I reached Shion I bent down and picked her up in a princess carry. “I…I’m sorry Shion, I sh…should have jumped in.” I told her as I reached the fort and gently laid her down on the ice.
Shion’s eyes suddenly became clear again, as her constant flow of tears disappeared and the small swirl around her feet also disappeared. “D…did I do a good job?” She asked, sounding like she was in a considerable amount of pain.
I nodded. “You did an amazing job.”
Shion smiled ever so slightly for a moment. “I’m glad.” She said, just before passing out.

Alright, now that Shion was safe, I looked back towards the dragon searching for Metalvine. “The Other side.” Metalvine said, sounding a bit annoyed. Rushing I went sprinted around the dragon until I found Metalvine, practically almost every part of him was covered by the dragon except for half of his left arm. “I’m not sure how to get you out.” I told him truthfully. Metalvine seemed to sigh before creating a jagged piece of scrap metal stabbing the dragon and tearing it’s flesh trying to dig his way out.

(edit new addition)
At least the dragon is basically incapable of hurting anyone unless they go up to it. Until I see that Kat is actually walking up to it with a sharp piece of metal in her hand. What’s she… oh no. She walks up straight towards it’s head and prepares to stab it in the eye. I run as fast as my legs can take me, scared for her safety that the dragon might try to take a bite out of her. As I draw near I channel the power of nature into my fist, prepared to elongate it in case anything goes wrong to punch the dragon. He’s powerful, but severely wounded. Perhaps even a weakling’s punch could knock him out now considering all the damage he’s taken. “BE CAREFUL!” I yell out towards Kat.

1.What is the ultimate goal of this game?

Go through stages (forest, beach etc) and fight with or without others to become the strongest. (And pvp tournament at end)

(There probably won’t be a pvp tournament at the end, and the objective is mostly to ascend the food chain and become the strongest insects that ever lived! (or something))

Some more questions.

1. Do we only gain a third element, and not any more elements?

2. Do we get to choose this new element we gain, or does it only depend on the elements of the enemies we defeat?

3. What happens if the insect I control is killed? Do I just start with another member of the same insect species or something? If so, do I retain all the extra stats and abilities my previous insect gained?

1. You gain one rare element, though at some point I might allow you to get an extra common element (Though it’s power will be limited)

2. You get to choose the new element.

3. Your insect passes out until further notice.

@SypherKhode822: Stats still aren’t fixed, also I guess this means you want your starter skills to both be costly but highly damaging then?

@Blood_Shadow: Basically practically everything in this realm can cast magic. (Even bacteria, but the effect is so limited it’s not even noticeable to practically every entity.) Anyways, you gain more magic power by eating the flesh of strong enemies. This unlocks your potential as an insect allowing you to achieve special 3rd element attacks most other insects lack. So technically, every single insect can develop a rare element, only those who hunt bigger and stronger insects can actually achieve it in the end.

@thenewampkit: Today. I just haven’t had time lately because of work/college. But I will have plenty of time today, and tomorrow as well.

Edited Slight typo fixed on (1.)
1. You only control one insect belonging to your species. Though that doesn’t mean you couldn’t spawn larvae to fight with you or something.

2. After each level you’ll gain some stats and skill points. To get the rare element however, well you’ll need to gain enough experience first and clear enough levels. (Basically when I feel like your characters are strong enough.)

@BCLEGENDS: It can’t be a random status effect, because there’s too many to list. (though providing me a short list of all applicable ones would be one way around this.)

@ilovekirby12: Turning enemies into allies is fine so long as it’s not permanent (As then you can just overwhelm the other inhabitants with numbers. Also your passive is for the most part fine. I just needed some time to look at it more closely before deciding if I think anything is wrong with it or not.

@10crystalmask01: Sorry, but if anything opens up I’ll let you know alright?

@Bloodyrainious10001: You came late to the party, unfortunately you won’t be able to play unless a spot opens up.

@Blood_Shadow: Will do, but for now I’m mostly looking over everything and determining what needs to be changed or not.

(Alright, solid hit from me! :D)

Azorel Nilm
Flustered by Kat’s reaction I begin digging through the snow all the while stuttering.“I…I wasn’t staring, though. I…I wasn’t e…even l…l…looking at you.” I hope I wasn’t giving out the wrong impression to her.

Metalvine
Seeing another entity get grabbed by the dragon I rush forward moving closer to the dragon before extending out my vines to wrap around the dragon and lift me up closer to it’s body. I wasn’t going to let this monster run away so easily. Then after that, all I’d need to do is climb up it’s body and fire off a Metal Shard Blast at it’s wing to take this beast down. My planning was solid, all I needed to do was make sure the dragon didn’t hit me with his beam and I’d be fine. “I’m leaving things up to you!” I shouted towards Shion as I passed her, slowly accelerating towards the dragon.

“Understood.” She responded as I watched her send out a large amount of water towards the Dragon’s head as it slowly engulfed it. Strong winds could then be heard as the body of water covering the dragon began to compress. Surely if it was strong enough the dragon would be unable to fire his breath weapon, and with that broken maw of his, I doubt he had the strength left in that part of his body to fight against it. Everything is going perfectly.

(Shion sends out a large body of water to cover the dragon’s head and uses strong winds to compress it, forcing the dragon’s mouth closed. (High concentration needed for Shion to do this) Metalvine then uses his vines to wrap around the dragon and hoist himself up, climbing up the body with his bare hands when possible. He then will move towards the wing and fire a metal shard blast to stop the dragon from flying.)

@thenewampkit: Only one element can be used for your main basic attack unless you have a stance switch skill. Otherwise everything else is fine. Skills will be tweaked later when I have time.

@BCLEGENDS: Projected Bite – Take off the inflicts random additional status effect, or choose a specific status effect/status effects.
Web Shot: This will probably be tweaked slightly later, but for the most part it’s solid.
Main basic Attack: Which element are you planning to use?

@Blood_Shadow: Good job, everything’s practically perfect :D (Though wind blade may need a minimum of 1 energy to work at range.) I’ll think about it.

@10crystalmask01: Choose 2 skills only, good enough for now, will look more in-depth later, basic attack element?

@ilovekirby12: Spordeal bite will probably need to be reworked a little. (Also you can’t turn an enemy into a “permanent” ally.) Your passive may also be reworked as well. Though currently it seems solid. I’ll have to think about if anything needs to be changed.

@SypherKhode822: Basic attack element? (also you don’t need to list latch/shake)
You start off with 2 attack and 0 defense and then allocate both stat points. You don’t start off with 0/0
How powerful do you want your skills to be?

Azorel Nilm
Watching the attacks succeed to a great degree (Except for Metalvines volley of seeds which merely act as an annoyance.) I turn back towards Kat. “That’s not the point is it though? That little girl must be in serious pain, so for her, we must win this battle.” In this brief moment I feel my anxiety leave. More important things must be done at this time than staying nervous after all. “W…wait, w…what do you mean by l…lover boy?” I stutter confused at her choice of wording. Did I somehow hit on her? Did I express lovelike behavior or something?

Metalvine
Ignoring my blubbering idiot of a master, I push closer to the dragon before watching it gather energy into it’s mouth. “W…what’s it trying to do?” I mutter to myself.

“Metalvine.”

Turning to the voice I notice Shion’s vacant face staring at me. “Yeah, what do you want?” I impatiently ask. Now was not the time for chit-chat.

“Fire.” She says, whilst pointing to her mouth.

I smile a little realizing what she’s trying to tell me. Alright then, just this once I’ll follow your orders. Changing my arm into seed bazooka form, I fire off a walnut at the dragon’s gaping mouth. As it soars through the air I watch as a strong gust of wind pushes the walnut even faster. Shion then erects a wall of ice directly in front of the dragon sealing off both the collected energy, dragon, and exploding walnut. I smiled widely, preparing for the fireworks.

(Metalvine fires a walnut at the dragon’s mouth, Shion makes it faster with a gust of wind, as well as erecting a wall of ice blocking the walnut, energy, and dragon.)

Yes they have. Though technically neither Hamuka, Sypher, and thenewampkit have started filling out a sheet either. So if any of them stall to long I’ll take them off.

I’ll be waiting. I’ve already finished my character sheet.

Feel free to post it now if it’s already done.

Also, I’ll unlock slot 5 and 6, just because 4 players is extremely low. However, because of this the group may split up from time to time.

Finally the first level is going to play out as a mini tutorial with easy enemies. As well as testing out a few of the mechanics on my part. (Most likely I’ll give everyone extra damage after the first level, as I realize 2 is extremely low.)

Also bc a spider is not an insect


Last, I don’t think it’s fair for thenewampkit to get a sign, simply because he straight up copied the example with no effort at all, than say, someone who possibly read the rules and is still writing a unique in depth sign (therefore taking more time) just saying.

(Reserve if any open spots left, specifically a parasetic ant type :D think mushrooms)

Well if anything counts, he also has more than 2 skills making his character null and void.

also @ilovekirby12: A spider may not be an insect, but it’s close enough in my book if it’s as small as an insect, and isn’t a monster/bipedal humanoid, or a robot.

@BCLEGENDS: biology and biography are both different in that biology is basically how a normal [insert species] lives, as well as what/why they’re resistant/weak to something. A biography is literally a story about your bug’s life.
