Here is a beta test character I decided to post as an invitation for comments/feedback.

Currently, the player has no extra equipment slots other than their body. They are unable to drop, throw, sell, destroy, etc this item. Having an equipped weapon means that all the combat code just works, and if you've ever peeked into py_attack in cmd1.c, you will understand that is a good thing!

So, the player gets level up bonuses that apply directly to their body. They might (rarely) grow sharper (+1d) or, more commonly, grow either more accurate (+1 to hit) or more deadly (+1 to damage). These level up bonuses get wiped out when the player evolves into a new form and are really their just to speed up the early game and to keep things interesting. Other level up bonuses are possible, but I want the main source of power to come from weapon absorption.

I probably messed up Arjen's initial plan thru lack of understanding ... If so, apologies. But what I ended up doing is a weaponsmith essence approach. The player absorbs weapons and acquires points for each ability drained. Then, the game applies a (tweakable) formula to convert points into actual abilities.

At the moment, the Thieve's quest generated 2 magic weapons, and one even had slay orc! So my 11 essences of "To Hit" currently give a +3 bonus. Also, the single essence of "Slay Orc" gives the slay since it is only beneficial early on. These essences stay with the player thru evolution, though they might get drained in the process of upgrading to a new form. Also, Death Swords are susceptible to disenchantment which is capable of draining their essences (but doesn't otherwise do extra physical damage).

So, the game will have certain grind to power characteristics. Personally, I'm OK with this style of game! Also, the only way you are going to ever acquire all the resists (which is an absolute requirement in this variant) is to have this sort of mechanic. Otherwise, you will need to offer multiple armor slots which will reduce the flavor of this build.

Speed might be an issue. The Death Sword grows faster with evolution and speed essences convert in a one to one fashion (and are never drained). Still, I wonder if this will prove problematic?

As creatures of magic, these animated swords have decent device skills, so usage of staves of speed will be an option.

Can you brand/reforge/artifact yourself?

Hmm ... Actually, I think you can. I'm OK with enchanting yourself at the Warrior's guild, but am not so sure that ?WeaponBranding or ?ArtifactCreation or Reforging should be allowed. Thoughts?

On 12.7.2013 18:44 chris wrote:
OK, I block Artifact Creation, Reforging, Mundanity and Weapon Branding. You cannot get blasted either, but you can become cursed and disenchanted.

Back to playing, I'm working the orc caves with my massive slay orc power! Actually, I'm a bit deep at the moment, but have managed a couple hippogrifs and even a carrion. But I ran from Nar and confusion is rather deadly atm. At least I can relax a bit wrt arch-viles thanks to a slay dragon drain.

Serpent men ... again! I didn't know they paralyze from a distance. They can also summon Chaos Mushrooms that permafuse the player. Quite nasty.

Power was OK with this guy, though I wonder about FA and SI. Perhaps I just got unlucky? Also, the classic early game lack of any means of detection (traps, doors, monsters ... you name it!) was rather annoying!

But I like this build as a challenge race ;)

This idea is ridiculous in a good way!!
Just wanted to mention that even though I haven't been posting characters lately, my girlfriend and I have been enjoying PosCheng quite a bit, working on a couple of massively long-term, heavily save-scummed characters. (Well, one of them has died 7+ times, the other only once ^^.) As always, it's fun to check up on your latest builds, and thanks for all the development work!

Nice work on making them already!

Give me a way to play a sword and I'll playtest the crap out of them.

@Djabanete: You can thank Arjen for this particular zany idea! :D

@Arjen: OK, 1.0.29 is on the way. It hasn't crashed for me yet, but I can make no guarantees!
