Acrobatics and combat

Post by Ckrik » 24 Sep 2020 07:51

Code: Select all

Greetings Citizens of the Donut!

Good old Death recently wondered why no one on the donut ever
tried avoiding a sword swing by backflipping or twisting
in midair -- all he sees are dodge dodge parry dodge dodge parry
parry by combatants suited in the thickest and heaviest platemails
while strongly rooted to the ground. Arman and I happened to
catch the conversation Death was having with himself and wondered
the same.

Hence it has been decided by the immortals in Genesis that the
skill acrobat be applicable in combat situations. Naturally Death
immediately protested and countered that we should do away with
dodging and parrying to increase the number of mortal visits to
his lair. Fortunately for the mortal citizens of the donut we
immortals disagreed with him.

Exactly how acrobatics affect combat is for you to discover.
Needless to say variables that compromise your jumping or
execution of lithe movements would limit your ability to avoid
a hammer blow with acrobatic flourish.

As a result of this change the amount of guild tax levied
associated with the acrobat skill will be modified and some guilds
currently with acrobatics training will either have a tax increase
or their acrobat skill decreased appropriately.

Train up your acrobat skill and ungag misses in "options" to see
acrobatics in effect. If you notice enormous dragons or
creatures that should not be acrobatic doing backflips and such
please send the bug reports to me.

Fun idea, does it mean defence parry has become worse or are they status quo?

Also add acrobatics imbue please :)

Oh and some indications to which guild will have acrobatics and who will not.
And mercenary with adaptation might be interesting now.

He is doing code on the monks guild...
And this would be an excellent way of getting monks out of shields and armours and use only acrobatics to avoid damage.

Can you backflip from a spell casted at you?

Depending on what that spell is, why not?

This seems like a neat change to divest monks from the dual shield crutch that made them into great tanks. Also curious how this will affect mercenaries - perhaps they become top tanks! Exciting change.

Honestly combined with a tanky layman they were as good as it gets without being neidar before the AA got their fix :)

Before this change, we wouldn't, for example, have cases of skill redundancy in combat too easily. Now, using Kender/Pirate as an example, one can more easily pay double combat aid for overlapping acrobatics. Is that something that is taken into consideration in some way?

Besides troubling thoughts, I love making more skills relevant :)
