Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

While we’re at Pastaria, I’d like to suggest badges for Momentum Missile Mayhem and In3structotank!. I mean, they have 3.8+ rating and API, so there’s no logical reason against badging them, right?

Bump, since we’re currently at 19.6 million users, a.k.a. awfully close to 20 million.

Just for fun, I made another graph in ~20 minutes to honor this:

It’s amazing how fast this site grows. o.o

2. Paralytic Agent – The attack paralyzes the target for five turns, making them unable to act every other turn, starting on the first turn this effect is active. 30% chance.

What the- Paralyzing for 5 turns? 30% chance? That is in no way serious, right?

Same goes for Burning Venom; it deals 6 fire damage, then 1.6 fire + 1.4 toxic for 5 turns, equalling to 21 DoT, dooming the enemy. (Assuming the insects we meet are roughly in the same league as us.)

If this gets through without any debuffs, I’ll have to ask for a serious buff of my own skills. Like, 40% chance to stun a body part/20% chance to stun entire body for 3 turns for the sting; and a 30% accuracy reduction for 5 turns for the spit.

(I suck at naming stuff. Yes, I realize that.)


Name of Insect Species: Storm Hornet (Vespa procella)

Appearance: A yellow-light blue colored, striped hornet, roughly 3.5 cm in size. One noticable detail about the storm hornet is its unusually large, black mandible, measuring up to 5 mm in length. Another unusual detail is that its entire body glows at night, due to the amounts of electricity inside the hornet. This makes it easily visible at night, which is useful while travelling in groups, but can be detrimental if the hornet is lonely.

Body Parts: Main Body, Mandible, Stinger

Skills:

Stunning Sting (stinger, melee) – The hornet injects its stinger into the victim, and emits a short, high-voltage electric charge, causing deep, painful electrical burns. In some cases, the charge may travel via the nervous system, causing paralysis of the limb affected, or the entire body in extreme cases.

Attack: deals (base damage × 1.5) electric damage. 15% chance to stun the targeted limb for 1 turn, making skills on that body part unusable. 5% chance to stun the entire body for 1 turn, making all skills (including base ones) unusable. Costs 6 energy.

Confusing Spit (mandible, ranged) – The hornet uses its large mandibles to spit electrified water at the target, which can put out very small fires while also having the effects of eletricity if used at close range. The hornet usually aims said water at the target’s eyes, and as such, can reduce eyesight significantly if the attack is well-aimed. Of course, the hornet has to wait a while before using this ability again.
Attack: deals (base damage × 0.75) water damage and (base damage × 0.5) electric damage. 10% chance to reduce accuracy by 20% for 3 turns. Costs 5 energy. Can’t use two times in a row.

Habitat: The storm hornet is usually found in the vast rainforests near the city of Shurabat, though in the past few years, some groups went farther away, to the northern savannas and grasslands. In the rainforests, the hornets usually target smaller insects, and hunt alone more commonly than in groups. There, the hornets use their large mandibles to first stun, then rip apart the insects. They may also use their ability to spit electrified water at nests of insects, confusing all of them and making them easier to attack.
In the grasslands, however, the hornets usually travel in small groups of 50-100 hornets, adapting to the larger size of the wildlife there. These groups usually attack larger animals by stinging it several times at once, the large electric pulse being able to stun or kill them.
Sometimes, storm hornets will also enter the city, where they can attack humans. Storm hornets are considered extremely dangerous to human life; on one occasion, a group of them killed 7 people and injured another 10 before they were eradicated. As such, the leaders of the city are always thinking of new ways to fight the hornets, making life as an insect pretty dire there.

Final Stats:

Body: 12/12 hp, 20/20 energy, 1 defense, 3 attack (Electricity), +5% shake (grapple), + 15% latch (grapple), + 10% dodge
Mandible: 6/6 hp
Stinger: 10/10 hp

Biology:

Elements: Electricity, Water
Resistances: Electricity, Toxic, Light
Weaknesses: Water, Fire, Dark
Main basic attack: Bite (mandible)

Bio:

Storm hornets mostly owe their existence to humanity, and its inability to just leave Mother Nature’s creatures alone.

A few years ago, scientists in the remote city of Shurabat decided to experiment on some hornets with electricity, trying to explain why they tend to nest in electrical outlets and boxes, and why they produce electricity from light.
The results were shocking. (Pun intended.) The electricity broke down the toxins in the hornet’s body, converting them into plain, simple water. However, the current used was so strong that it permanently changed the hornets’ body makeup. Their mandible grew larger, and the normally black stripes on their bodies changed into light blue. Also, the water inside their bodies kept some electricity inside the hornets, making them even more dangerous than before. It also made them more agressive. Surprisingly, all of the insects survived the ordeal.
After a few hours, the hornets, realizing that this is not their natural habitat, decided to escape. The scientists tried to keep the swarm at bay, to no avail. The next day, the hornets were in the rainforests, leaving the lab and the stunned (figuratively and literally) scientists behind.

Since then, the number of the hornets have risen into the hundreds of thousands, enough to allow the leaders of Shurabat to classify them as pests. After they did that, they started researching new methods to eradicate them; but so far, nothing worked, and the storm hornets roam the lands to this day.

if this mission fails (and we get a success on M4), do you have any idea on what should we do?

M4 seems a perfect opportunity to gain intel on other players, since it’s pretty much a guaranteed success. In case M3 fails, we should exploit that ability to the greatest extent possible, since we’ll need as much information as possible to have a shot at winning M5 and the game.

hammy, bother to clear why, if ignoring Fogfun’s part in mission 2, you suggest sending Kad onto the mission rather than me?

In 1 single post, he analyzed more, pointed out more mistakes, and overall helped resistance more than pretty much anyone else in this game (including you, and, though I don’t really want to admit it, myself as well). Thus, the change.


Anyway, since there were no other concerns about the pe-proposal in 4 days, and since this mission stretched way, way too long, it’s time for the…

Proposal: hamuka, Lebossle, Pulsaris, kadleon.

Topic: Forum Games / [MISSION 3] The Resistance

sigh Sorry, guys. I forgot about this game totally, and when I actually noticed this and tried to write a post, it got deleted.

Four times.

Four. Times.


(Leb)

I also noticed something: mission 5 is pretty much impossible to succeed, but mission 4 is pretty much a certain success, so if you’re putting anyone on the mission to get knowledge about them, make sure that knowledge would be useful.

Yup, I also noticed that by now. (Sidenote: It seems weird that missions in an 8P have the same requirements as in a 10P.)

After thinking it through a few times, I have decided that I’ll replace Bluji. Now, I just have to think about who to put in his place…

(Kad)

djrockstar’s ignorance of this question (not even once, it seems that he purposely ignored it all three times it was asked of him to explain) makes me suspicious of hamuka as well.

Elaborate, please?

The mission succeeded, which seems to be either a stupid move by the spies or we were really lucky to not have any spies on the mission. No sensible spy would want to drag on the game till Mission 4, since M4 is basically resistance-domination and that would put the game at a fragile 2-2.

If “fragile”, in that sentence, means “an almost 100% win chance for spies”, that sentence is 100% spot on.

Let me reitrate what several people said before:

mission 5 is pretty much impossible to succeed,
bq. Bullshit. If it’s 2-2 after M4, the spy will win, because in M5 we’ll have to pull out a 5-man team. In other words, we will have to pick FIVE OUT OF fucking FIVE resistance in order to win. Impossible.

That is why M3 is so essential. If we don’t win this one, we’re screwed.

[djrockstar’s PoV]

Fair point. I didn’t really examine this situation from his PoV, so now that you’ve explained it, his posts do actually make a lot more sense. Though, I still don’t understand why he didn’t deem occooa suspi-

occooa accepted, which is completely normal given she was on the mission herself.

I’M A GODDAMN IDIOT. Seriously, I have no idea how I overlooked that detail. Thanks for noting that.

(Sidenote #2: Stop writing analyses at 10 PM. Nothing good can come out of that. Ever.)


So, I think I have my new pre-proposal.

hamuka, Lebossle, and Pulsaris are here to stay. While dj’s concerns about Pulsaris do seem legitimate, I’d still choose him over an active lurker and a near-confirmed spy.

Bluji is going to be replaced. We have absolutely no room for failure here, so gaining information will have to wait.

Finally, my fourth candidate for this mission will be Kadleon. He seems quite pro-town, and has a great analyzing ability. So far, I saw no scumtells from him. (The fact that he thinks a 2-2 would be more favorable for resistance than spies is rather weird, but not a direct scumtell.)
Plus, Fogfun, who he replaced, was on M2, which succeeded. (Not that it means a lot, mind you, since Ninja said inactive spies send success by default, but still.) That’s enough to convince me that he’s the best choice for this.


Any thoughts on this proposal? Objections, etc.?

As for M3, I’d probably take two or three people from M2. Not all four, though, since one could be a Pass-submitting spy and only taking one seems nuts. Thoughts?

…As a matter of fact, that’s a nice idea. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes. In that case, let me think things through.

hamuka is obviously not getting replaced.

Lebossle is M2 captain, so no, he can’t get replaced either.

Pulsaris is a necessary choice, because if there is 1 spy on M1 (which is extremely likely, as pointed out earlier), 2 spies are outside it; thus, choosing 4 people outside M1 will result in at least 1 spy being on the mission.

That leaves Bluji as the only one who’s “unnecessary”, but, as I’ve pointed out earlier, he should be on the mission so that we gain more information and have a better shot at winning the game. I’ll think about what will happen to him once Ninja answers his question.
