Trait Requests!
« on: May 11, 2009, 00:12 »

I'm pretty sure we used to have a "New traits go here" topic but it died or got deleted or something. So I'll start up a new one and see if anyone's still got ideas.
I'm still up for discussion on my Artful Dodger trait, and I've also got a new one here to get things rolling.

Everliving
"Tis but a SCRATCH!"
Some say you can't die. Well, the people at the UAC do anyway. They've seen you get hit by cars and emerge with broken fingers, fall off cliffs and miss the ground. Anything that should bump you off the mortal coil just seems to stop a little bit short.
Any time you "die", the damage and accuracy of the projectile is rerolled. Should it either miss or not do enough damage to kill you with these new rolls, you live.
This ability has no cooldown and will always trigger whenever you hit 0 HP.

Hesitation
"Hell will fear me!"
(I haven't think of one...)
When the monsters use ranged attack at you, there's is a delay for a couple of turns.

Hesitation needs a lot more detail on what the exact effect is.

For the quote:

Where you go, even demons fear to tread.

or

Few can stand against your hellish stare.


For a better name, try "Tamer of Hell," as it's not YOU who hesitates.

All numbers subject to tweaking and rebalancing.

Lucky Bastard - 3 tiers
"Possession is nine-tenths of the law."
Requirements: None
The spawn rate of powerups and equipment (weapons, ammo, armor, mods, medkits, etc.) is increased by 15/30/45%.

Speed of Thought - 1 tier
"Can't touch this!"
Requirements: Hellrunner 3
You have supernaturally fast reflexes. Attacks that would automatically hit you (Arch-Vile flames, shotguns, Revenant missiles) have a 50% chance to miss you while you're moving (75% if you're running).

the increased item rate would be unlocked by a 'packmule' trait if anything. and those percentages are way too high.

Stonebreaker
"It's clobbing time!"
Your hands are so hard that your skin of your hands are made of very thick and tough leathery hide and the bones are much harder than diamonds. With this, you can break down walls, and send monsters flying across the floor and makes a bloody mess. however, with that much force, you will get tired and can't use it again until it wears off.
Requirement: Brute 3, Ironman 3

Or maybe the name Evil eye would suffice and the quote being "I see you!"

Unseen
"Now you see me, now you don't!"
If 'Hide 'n' Seek' were an acceptable game at the UAC (and why would it be?), you'd never be found, even if you were standing right in the open. You manage to blend into the walls so perfectly, people who are otherwise skilled at detecting camouflaged soldiers run straight into you without even knowing you were there. For every level of this skill, monsters have another 25% chance of not seeing you when you're standing still, 20% when walking, and 15% when running. Firing, however, gives away your position completely.
Requires Hellrunner 3
Max level: 3

I've already suggested this one before, but the topic has drowned. So, I'm reposting my idea. Discuss !


Addict

Dynamite !

Requirements : Ironman(3)

You are very vunerable for side-effects of pain medicine. This makes you feel really pissed off and gives you around 33,3% chance of going berserk while using small med-packs and 66,6% for large med-packs. Of course, you won't get a healing effect of a berserk pack. And no, this doesn't apply for power-ups, only stuff.

As I said before, this would make IM worth picking even by less experienced players, and would make AoB a little bit easier. Yes, it needs balancing. And yes, it needs a better quote !

Godspeed

"How is that even... how are you doing that?"

Guys at UAC made you play piano till your soul comes out so now your fingers are so fast that you can reload your rapidfire weapons every shot! Oh yeah, Phobos no more reload!

Req: Eagle Eye (2), Son of a Bitch (2)

Nuclear Boy

"I'm sick of this hell"

You are so sick of this hell, that you'd rather shit thermo-nuclear bomb than mess with this f****** monsters.. oh wait, WHAT'S THIS? Yeah, you can shit thermie, but beware! This is so much strain on your body, that your HP will be instantly decreased to 20 % and bomb isn't small so it will take you 10 seconds to do it, and it kinda smells so you will activate it with your foot, you don't wanna take nasty things to your inventory do you?

Req: Though as Nails (3)

Jumper

"I don't fear lava"

You can jump! There are 2 levels, 1: 1 square in air, 2: 2 squares in air, so basically on lvl 1 you're traveling 2 squares and on lvl2 - 3 squares. It can be used for jumping over small lava/acid areas, also on second level you can jump over barrels. Beware! When hit in air, you will fall into square you've been jumping over and also your armor is reduced by 1 (on second level it's not reduced).

Idiot

I'm an idiot, kill me somebody! I'm an idiot, kill me somebody!

After endless war with hellish monsters your became idiot. Nothing good you would say but are you sure? With this trait you move 30% slower and your accuracy is decreased by 4 points, but you're so pitful idiot that even monsters from hell pity you and are not attacking unless you attack them (or are ignoring you for 3 turns when they see you and after 3 turns they attack).

I know, stupid ideas but let's not be so serious about that... but ok I'll stop :)

'Brawler (3)

"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee!"

You've been in more than your fair share of fistfights. For every level of this trait you gain a +15% bonus to dodge in melee combat, as well as a +2 bonus to-hit with a melee weapon.'

This trait could potentially be combined with Brute to give a general melee specialisation trait, like Son of a Gun is with pistols.

I have idea for expansion of Whizzkid trait. So it would be Whizzkid (3) - you gain ability of 1 extra mod per normal weapon and from now on you can remove mods from items and apply them to other! Lets say in inventory you'll select weapon and press 'l' or 'u' and then you will eject all mods.

To uber. You will be able to stack mods in other weapons, and later use them in the weapon of your choice. SOund reasonable, that you can take out the mods, but this would really make you marine a really, really great ass-kicker.
