New Fire Spell: From the Ashes

Postby SinghSTAR » Tuesday January 25th, 2011 4:30pm

Hey all!

I have thought of a new Fire Spell. Normally, Fire Spells are very offensive, but I decided to make a twist. So, here it is:

From the Ashes:

This spell may be cast on any Hero. If that Hero dies, they forfeit ALL of their gold and may come back at the end of the quest, with all of their quest items, artifacts and weapons. Reborn; like a Phoenix From the Ashes.

What do you think? Any ideas, suggestions, criticism, anything. I was thinking of letting the Reborn Hero keep any quest items, but I decided on this- what do you think?

I also need some artwork, pwease? I had a go, but I'm pretty useless at computer images. Have a look!

Something like this?

Some players play with the rule that if a chracter dies, they die for the rest of the quest, but can come back for the next quest. So this will not be useful for them, but will for us as we play 'dead is dead' rules!! MWHAAA HAAA HAAA :lol:

How is it different from just creating a new character though?

Because creating a new character doesn't allow you to retain your possessions, unless you have another Hero in the room to collect them and pass them on at the time of death.

That's my point.

The spell says that you don't get to keep your possessions anyway.

Besides, you could cast the spell every quest and never die, which takes the risk out of anything you do.

Haha! I knew it was flawed somehow. Well, how about if the character could retain any quest items? Or could keep their gold or one piece of equipment? Any thoughts on that?

And, Jaguar69- did you make that? It's great! Do you mind if I use it? ;) I know you won't.

Well, I think you need to make it that they lose all gold, but keep thier posessions, artifacts and equipment etc, or it is the same as just making a new character.

Yes, i knocked that pic up last night!! i'll email you it in better size/ res.

Thanks, Jaguar69. And thanks everyone for the criticism. I've edited the first post, with the new spell effect. How is it now?

I like the artwork but I still think the effect is way overpowered, sorry.

You could maybe have this as an artifact that can only be used once and loses its power, a special 'Pheonix Ring' or 'Phoenix Orb'.

This then just protects one player from death for one quest.
