Official "Battle" Thread
« on: April 29, 2015, 12:07:56 AM »
I just added the mod to the forums called Battle, and it has the potential to need its own thread. So here it is.

What is Battle?

Battle is a simple RPG accessible through the options at the top of your page. You can go on quests, attack other forum members, and hunt monsters. It's as straightforward as it sounds but quite addictive.

Why is it getting its own thread?

1) Bragging rights. We're all probably going to attack each other a lot.

2) You can add your own monsters and quests. Yup. I can go in and edit them as simple as pie.

So does that mean I can add content?

YES! Through me. Simply message me what you want added to the game. As long as it's within the spirit of Geekronomicon, I'll add it. It'll even have your name on it, if you'd like.

Is this a permanent feature?

Unfortunately, I'm unsure yet. I'm experimenting with a lot of different forum modification packages and, as a result, I don't know what will and won't stay.

Anything else?

Nope! Let's have fun with this thing!

Official "Fyn is a murderous bastard" Thread.   :o

I lashed out in anger at Marcian and died. I'm a little embarrassed by that.

What are the options for adding content?  Like the "Old Man Approaches" dialog with random outcomes?  Obviously, monsters.  Anything we're missing?  Can we create items for the store?

-Shop Items
-Quests
-Monsters
-Exploration Events

So far, I can change those. Still figuring out how to add custom images. It may not be possible.

Can we do anything about that map?  It's pretty nonspecific.  I mean, everything is kind of random, right?  Can we make new tiles, for a larger map, with inherent effects/events?

Can you track member heals? It could help offset the slaughter.

I can't find that functionality just yet. Will make a note, as there seem to be Battle mods out there.

Mods for mods. What a world.
