Conquest of Mechanus [Beginning]

(1/17) > >>


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.

(click to show/hide)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?
(click to show/hide)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.

Hallan Parva:
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.)
