Here’s a “small” idea, directly taken from my phone’s notes, comes with 200% more bad English.
- FIGHTING STYLE
In the Page 372 of the comic Keith is battling a guard, and the only way he defeats him is by using the Wolven fighting Style rather than the Basitin Standard.
The coolest way to implement this is by not only design a diverse moveset for every weapons, but design like 5 movesets per type, 3 for every race plus some bonus lore one ( It’s called Basitin STANDARD, maybe it has variations).
The simplest way instead treats a style as a permanent buff for every race, that only changes the idle animation.
Either way the game should let the player switch to one another in a fight.
Here’s my imagination of Styles:
A stance with arms open, it’s focused on baiting attacks and getting so Close that the enemy will panic. Attacks animation are very telegraphed but fast enough to be useful.
Attack +20% and Block power-35%
From the fight, the guards just waits to Keith to attack and then he just reacts. A Defensive stance for a Style that create openings by becoming a Wall, and getting on the nerves of the enemy, animation include quick strikes, with little to no telegraph but have poor range. Most suited for 1v1s rather than crowd control.
Block Power +20%, Attack -35%
Tigers Rage(Made up)
Jumps, Kicks and pounces for a style based on Speed and element of surprise. A low feral-like stance, bonus points for glowing eyes. Animation similar to the Wolven but special mid-air attacks and grabs Makes it unique.
Attack +50%, Speed +70%, Can’t block.
Sly Foxes/Humans( Made up )
A style for those Who just wanna Survive, not have a good fight, so it’s okay to play dirty. Lots of secondary tools like throwing weapons, ropes and even using the environment( throwing sand in the eyes) will ensure you’ll have the edge on you enemies. Animation have a more sloppy Basitin Standard(For Humans)/Wolven style (for foxes) with lots of dirty moves.
Attack -35% Block power -25% Attack versus stunned/knocked down/ poisoned / backs of enemies +100%
Mh… a way to obtain styles could be by partecipating in Arena Fights.
Arenas could be situated all over the world, in Human cities, people could Bet their gold in illegal slave fights(Mike boss fight?), Basitin already have Arenas(reference to comic needed) for political business and Keidran…I Think it’s just for entertainment.
PvP could be just 1v1, 2v2, 3v3 and 5v5 to get points in a leaderboard, every arena ahould gavs special rules( Basitins vs Humans, Punches only…)
PvE could have random waves of enemies versus a team or a solo player.
Losing in the Arena should not result in death ( at least not without a special rule) and it could be fun to spectate and Bet on fights.
Winning certain numbers of Pvp or PvE matches should get you something special (Like a style or special clothes).
This should have been small. Now I need to create another Topic. Oh Well Thanks and Sorry for the third time.
