Conquest of Mechanus [Beginning]
« on: May 12, 2017, 03:56:27 PM »
CONQUEST OF MECHANUS

Hi there. Welcome to a new forum game story thing inspired by similar things the mid-2010s community did here. This game would play out like a turn-based RPG.

Story:
Spoiler for Hiden:
In the far-off land of Tuberus, everything was fine. However... That all changed when the Mechanus Armada attacked, led by the evil goblin engineer Mechanus.
Tuberus was set into a state of chaos. Fortunately, for every bad thing, there's always hope. In this case, another land eventually noticed this attack.
General Y: This is bad! Mechanus has run amok. He has bested all our elite forces. Men, we need a superpowered team with potential. Find voluteers, HIRE TEENAGERS WITH ATTITUDE IF YOU HAVE TO!
Remaining soldiers: Yes, sir!
General Y: One more thing! Send invitation letters to notify them, and keep a low profile to avoid panic among the masses.

That being said, the fate of Tuberus lies in the hands of a ragtag bunch of misfits... Will they fall short of their mission, or will they be bad enough dudes to handle the Mechanus threat?

Gameplay:
Spoiler for Hiden:
You have 3 stats: Endurance(END), Attack(ATK) and Initiative(INT). So do the enemies. Moves have Power(POW) and Probability(PRB).
END is health. Once yours goes down to zero, you're out. Damage taken takes away from END.
ATK is something of an attack multiplier. POW is the base damage for abilities. Damage formula: POW * (ATK/10)
INT is the order of who goes first. If INT between players and enemies is equal, players go first.
PRB is your chances of the attack hitting, in percentage.
Players also have Energy(ENR) that moves use up. Certain things, mainly items, can restore ENR though.
You also get a basic attack which deals rudimentary damage without using up ENR. Damage is calculated as ATK * 1.5
Only 4 people get to be in the fight at the time, though you can switch out freely. Switching out takes up your move, though.
Once all enemies in battle are down, players that participated in the fight get EXP. With enough, they can increase their stats and learn new skills.

Also in this game is an elemental system. We have Fire, Water, Wind, Earth, Ice, Lightning, Nature, Metal, Light and Darkness.
Players and monsters may specialise in a certain element. This improves the PRB or POW of certain elements.
They are also weak or strong against a certain element. Weaknesses deal 1.3 times the damage while elements the target is strong against deal a 0.7 factor.

Pardon me, but I edited the original post to make things clear. You gentlemen don't have to, but feel free to make changes accordingly to your posts before signups end.

Thanks in advance.

This... actually doesn't look half-bad. Consider me surprised.

It sounds like the elements have a fixed weakness order, like in Pokemon or Mega Man Battle Network. If that is indeed the case, how does the order go?
Also, can a player/enemy unit have no element? (Mettaurs, Cannon battlechips, etc. are "Null" element, which takes neutral damage from everything.)

Actually, there are no weakness orders here. Sorry. I originally intended to make a Pokemon-styled weakness system, but I scrapped it after realising I can't compromise making a balanced elemental system while making it still make sense.

Also, as for a non-element player, I guess it would work if it made sense with the character and abilities. I guess only the user knows...

Pardon the conversation here.

So it's more like Etrian Odyssey or something, where weaknesses are on a per-unit basis? Like, this green slime is weak to Lightning but this blue slime is weak to Metal, despite both slimes using mainly Water attacks.

And speaking of Pokemon, I noticed there wasn't information on basic attacks, only a placeholder formula for special moves. Does this mean that all attacks are technically "special moves", like in Pokemon?

The weakness thing is pretty... Yeah... Different weaknesses per enemy unit.

As for basic attacks, I'll edit the main post on that.

jman I do not appreciate that last ability
there are probably people to blame for this that aren't me
Spoiler for Hiden:
Name: Wynn
 
Appearance: Wynn is a great white shark measuring at 3.17 meters in length.  His locomotion on land is achieved through his Aquatic Specimen Preservation Suit (affectionately referred to by Wynn as "Aspus").  This suit is a large water tank with two mechanical arms and 4 legs, all light gray in color with blue stripes running along them.  The back of the suit is equipped with a multi-purpose backpack with various functions to sustain Wynn, such as an automated nutrient injection system that deals with the water and a raincatcher to replace any displaced water.  Wynn communicates through a speaker mounted by harness that can project what he wants to say.  If the tank takes damage, it will begin to slowly leak water until the suit is repaired enough to refill the tank.
 
Personality: Not overly nice.  Wynn is relatively standoffish and stubborn, though he's reliable to those he feels he can trust.  Is a fan of what he refers to as "The hunt," though this just boils down to frequent sparring matches.  Will occasionally remind others of his species.  Those who do well against or with him in battle earn his respect, and Wynn will typically treat these people as though they have been long friends of his.  This side of him is very boisterous.  Treats Aspus as a person.
 
Element: Metal
 
Playstyle: Tanky.  Aspus is capable of projecting barriers to protect the main tank and any allies.  Can also fight with its powerful robot arms.

Name: Ashie

Appearance: Silver hair, sideswept bangs with red tip, purple hoodie, sometimes wearing a lab coat when experimenting, but keeping the hoodie for some reason

Personality: Young scientist prodigy who created energy gloves for battle, capable of manipulating every creation of her, kind of a psychopath when experimenting succesfully

Element: Metal

Playstyle: Ashie sits in the back lines, can deliever punches with her fists, increasing them in size for the period of the attack, also has a whole arsenal of machineguns, pistols, missiles and pocket army that can summon using energy from her gloves
 
Offensive role, mage style, but with Heavy Metal, some of her attacks induce certain weaknessess in exchange of firepower and PRB, has low endurance for direct hits

END: 30
ENR: 50

I'm really being subtle here
Character Info and other such fluff.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Name: "Boarfanger Man"
Appearance: Wearing a rather distinctive boar mask and donning a striking yellow sheepskin coat; it seems as if he's not concerned about his smell. This distinctive appearance also gives the impression that he wants to at least be very noticeable. He always seems to have his carving knife at his side; as if it was proof of his profession, whatever it is. In his right hand; he wields a bone club; curving slightly towards the user, wrapped in yellow scaly hide, the hide ending at the handle. Fangs adorn the striking end and red eyes on the sides make the weapon look like the top jaw of a beast. He has a pentagon-shaped bone buckler strapped to his left forearm; the same hide going down the middle, cut off at the sides. Although the shield is too light to block anything substantial; it is also too light to burden the user in battle. Basically, this is what he wields; http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/monsterhunter/images/6/63/Weapon497.png/revision/latest?cb=20120512094125. This is his mask: http://vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net/monsterhunter/images/7/73/Mask-Bullfango.png/revision/latest?cb=20100130041831
Personality: Contrasting his outfit and his weapon; he's rather boring, having nothing much to talk about; which could be mistaken for being a quiet person. He often spends his free time cracking bad jokes or quietly reading. He's got a case of trying too hard at times, or that's what he believes. A sure-fire way to anger him would be to ruin his plans, especially if you're on his side. Sometimes wonders what parts he could mine or carve off of the Mechanus Armada's goons and how many he needs to slay in order to make anything worthwhile.
Base Gameplay Stuff
Spoiler for Hiden:
Element: Weak to Fire. Strong against Ice. Has the skill Thunder Attack +1 on his armor. Element specialty is a moot point.
His garb gives him an awful weakness to fire; but does nothing for his choice of weapon. Most people would be convinced that he's just wearing his clothing just for the sake of an odd appearance. Every now and then, a jolt of static can be felt; which may give people a feeling that he should put it to better use. The silver lining to this is that he may be very resistant to Ice.
Playstyle: Supportive; Although he has high INT and high ATK on paper; he doesn't have any special moves that make direct use of his attack and his END is trash. To compensate; he wields the Deathprize, which can paralyze enemies; given enough strikes. He can also apply oils to his weapon to add modifiers to his attacks; which will make better use of his attack. If worst comes to worst, he can at least take part in "Stylish Bombing", a fighting style involving item usage and status abuse. Rumors float about; rumors that he uses his carving knife on the corpses of the monsters he fells.
Really Long Fluff that gives a general idea of how I want to play.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Stat Guidelines (use these to help you allocate stats)
END: Very Low
ENR: None
ATK: High
INT: Very High

He starts out with 3 moves.

Portable Spit
Description: You can cook meat with this. There's not really any other use for this. Takes 2 turns if used in the middle of battle.

Apply Stamina Oil
STOCK: 5 (Carries this much when going into battle. Restocks in intermissions.)
Description: Apply an Oil to your weapon; making every weapon attack (on the head) also build-up K.O. (stuns victim for 1 turn) for 6 turns. The build-up is equal to a 8 POW attack. Adds 10 POW ENR damage (doesn't matter where this hits), too. Only one oil can be active at a time. May be changed at GM's request.
"Boarfanger Man oils up his weapon! The weapon starts glowing blue!"
"The oil wears off."

Strike (MAY BE CHANGED AT GM'S REQUEST)
Element: Null/Para (MAY BE CHANGED AT GM'S REQUEST)
PRB: 100/(1 in 3)
POW: 10/5
Description: A simple strike, no bells or whistles, besides dealing Paralysis build-up sometimes. Paralysis stuns the enemy for about 2 turns if threshold is reached on bosses and tough targets or if activated on normal enemies (May be changed at GM's request.). It's never been simpler. For all intents and purposes, this is a basic attack.


He can learn later on (if it doesn't scream "Monster Hunter" to you, nothing will);

Apply Affinity Oil
STOCK: 5
Description: Apply an Oil to your weapon; making every weapon attack have a +20% crit rate (roll 1 ~ 5) for 6 turns. When a critical hit is successful, the attack will deal 25% more damage, rounded up. Only one oil may be active at a time. May be changed at GM's request.
"Boarfanger Man oils up his weapon! The weapon starts glowing red!"
"The oil wears off."

"The oil wears off."

Apply Destroyer Oil
STOCK: 5 (may be changed at GM's request)
Description: Apply an Oil to your weapon; making it easier to break guards or parts for 6 turns. Only one oil may be active at a time. May be adjusted at GM's request.
"Boarfanger Man oils up his weapon! The weapon starts glowing green!"
"The oil wears off."

Throw Flash Bomb
STOCK: 5
Description: Surprisingly, this blinds the enemy. This could be able to also stun an enemy, or interrupt attacks; though then again it could just be rumors.
"Boarfanger Man chucks a Flash Bomb at <target>!"
"<target> is blinded by the light!"

Throw Sonic Bomb
STOCK: 10
Description: Emits an extremely loud noise, interrupting whatever the enemy was doing, if they can hear. Side effects may include; Sending the target into a fit of rage.
"Boarfanger Man chucks a Sonic Bomb at <target>!"
"<target> seems to be unfazed. What a waste of time!"
"<target> forgets what he's doing and flies into a blind rage!"

Throw Tranquilizer Bomb
STOCK: 8
Description: Used for capturing weakened monsters in traps. Other than that, you could also use it as a makeshift smoke bomb; if you feel like pretending to be a ninja. Disclaimer; Capturing only works on sufficiently weakened large monsters that are caught in traps! (If large enemy has 10% health and are trapped, two of these will remove them from the battle.)
"Boarfanger Man chucks a Tranquilizer Bomb at <target>! <target> looks unfazed!"
"Boarfanger Man chucks a Tranquilizer Bomb at <target>! <target> falls into a deep sleep. Mission complete!"

"<victim> breaks free!"

Set Up Pitfall Trap

"Boarfanger Man sets down a Pitfall Trap!"
"The Pitfall Trap is fully deployed!"
"<victim> falls for Boarfanger Man's Pitfall Trap! <victim> ends up stuck in a ditch!"
"<victim> breaks free!"

Set Up Barrel Bomb S
STOCK: 10
DMG: 20 (may be changed at GM's request)
Description: Set up a Barrel Bomb S, which will explode after a set time. Conveniently, in the land of turn based games, this is instant. Detonates nearby Barrel Bomb L/L+ without recoil damage.

Spoiler for Hiden:

This is one hell of a sting operation.

Name: Yellow Jack
Appearance: A disheveled, lanky old man wearing a gaudy yellow beekeeping veil, a black-and-yellow striped shirt, a pair of black cargo shorts, black socks that are entirely too long, and a modest pair of brown loafers. His backpack doubles as a synthetic beehive and also a repository for his bug net and endless jars of honey.
Personality: Old. Crotchety. Always has something to complain about. Longingly reminisces of "the good ol' days." Enjoys bees.
Element: Nature
Playstyle: Jack commands an army of angry bees. He can wield them to attack by releasing them as an aimless swarm, or he can order them into formation to attack with a sword made of bees, wear bee armor, and the like. He can also throw jars of honey to affect enemies with sticky debuffs, or outright consume them to restore health.

Gameplay wise, this is one character.
Spoiler for Hiden:
Name: Camila Carter (and Jem)

Appearance:
Camila is a cyborg, even though most of her internal body is still organic. She has gray, synthetic skin, Shiny blue eyes and black hair. Slightly overweight.
She wears mosty summer clothing such as shorts and a t-shirt, even during winter, as her body can easily heat itself.
Her legs are fully robotic up to the knees, so she doesn't wear footwear.

Jem is an artificial intelligence that lives inside her, and is connected to her mind. It doesn't have a real physical appearance, but its "avatar" looks like a violet human figure with blue sunglasses.

Personality:
Camila is intelligent sounding and well educated but she often criticizes people, sometimes being rude while doing so.
When following her objectives, she tries to find other benefits along the way, which distracts her from what is important.
Patience is one of her greatest virtues, but those fighting alongside her might need it too, as she is a slow fighter.
She will only fight if the cost is lower than the reward, which makes her less prone to seek revenge unless it can benefit her.
She likes controlling other people but she is sometimes submissive to Jem.

Jem is rude, cynical and even more critical. It speaks in a southern accent. It's obsessed with obtaining knowledge.


Primary element: <insert something here>

Playstyle:
Espionage and detection. Lots of END, lacks INT.
She doesn't master any specific weapon or fighting style, but she prefers small weapons such as pistols and daggers so she can carry more, or versatile weapons such as assault rifles with attachments.
She is resistant to electric attacks, but they will stun her.

Potential habilities:

Inject nanobots: Fires a syringe dart to introduce microscopic robots into a person's body. Can be used on allies or enemies.
Destroy nanobots: Destroys introduced nanobots.
Trojan: Transmits what the nanobot host sees or hears.
Psionic network: Uses introduced nanobots in a person to share their senses, thoughts or even body control with Camila and Jem, as long as all parties are willing.
Augmented vision: Allows her to see in the dark.
Cloak: Makes her invisible to most entities for a limited time.
Environmental scan: Obtains information about the surroundings. May display nearby hidden enemies.

The following habilities are very ENR intensive and may stun Camila.

Neurovirus detonation: Uses already introduced nanobots to attack a host's central nervous system for a short period of time, causing paralysis, hallucinations, agitation, fever, terror, and in rare cases, coma. Nanobots are destroyed in the process.
EMP attack: Stuns/disables robots or electronic devices.
Sniffer: Intercepts enemy communications.

Name: Boner Man

Appearance: http://i.imgur.com/ZdTAWkT.png
He's a really tall skinny skeleton with red eyes and one of them is big and one of them is not so big

Personality: He really likes to boner people
by which I mean he annoys people until they make big fat boners
boner - definition and synonyms
2 AMERICAN INFORMAL OLD-FASHIONED a stupid mistake
fail, miscommunication, error...

Primary element: Water

Playstyle: He specialises in being really useless and annoying - he has low endurance, low attack, low power, low int, and low accuracy
I repeat
he is not good at anything
except annoying his team and the enemy and maybe status debuffs

Abilities: He can shoot the Raging Boner (a rocket-propelled femur) and release lasers from his eyes
However the lasers are just laser pointers and don't do anything
He can also stretch his limbs but they tend to flop about uselessly and get stuck everywhere

EDIT: here are some ways he can annoy people

* Distract enemies with laser pointers or shine them in their eyes
* Stretch his arm out past someone and tap them on the opposite shoulder to make them turn the wrong way
* Make a really bad pun about bones
