Going to use this thread like my art thread here http://forums.runicgames.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=917
, but now that we have brand new subforums I'll just use this "Design" one for this thread. (I'm honestly not sure what all that entails I'm going out on a limb and thinking any kind of design, even ideas and concepts should go here, if not Mod, move me.)
This is a personal thread I'll be updating like my art thread, but in this one I'm going to drop ideas for designs of mods. Sort of a mental scratchpad to keep the ideas semi-coherent and written down somewhere. "But Sean why do it online, did they baN paper where you live?" Well, I want to keep it here, online on these forums so people can riff of it like my art thread. If they like something I post here they can mod it. Or maybe they're stuck on an idea, they might like mine and decide to go with it. Public thread is public, all permission granted to make use of any of these ideas consider it public license you have my blessing. If I put it here it's because I might like to see it as a mod, and however that gets done, by me or someone else matters not to me so go for it and rock well.Shrines
1. Experience Shrine
Gives a temporary boost to experience gained. Typical stuff. Shrine modeled to look like a statue of an old wizened man with a staff., subtle light blue aura.
2. Magic Find shrine
Gives a temporary boost to your magic find rate by a huge amount. Around 400% of your current base. Shrine modeled to look like a statue of a treasure chest glittering with a shimmery silver aura.
3. Gold Find shrine
See above but for gold. Lasts longer. Shrine modeled to look like an open treasure chest glittering with a gold aura.
4. Monster shrine
Turns you into a random monster for a limited time. All of you skills become the monster's skills. You may become a goblin archer for a bit, and you'll be able to shoot ranged bombs like they do. Wears off after about 4 or 5 minutes. Shrine looks like a fountain, but it's a big monster head with lava running out of it's mouth instead of water. Subtle red glow.
5. Cursed Monster shrine
Same as above but you become the monster permanently until you are cured by finding either healing shrine or by buying a cure potion from the alchemist in town. For a very steep (ridiculously steep) price. Indistinguishable from a regular Monster shrine. Small chance to spawn in place of regular Monster shrine.
6. Mercenary Barracks shrine.
A shrine that spits out a random and generic Alchemist, Destroyer or Vanquisher character of two levels below your current level with random skills and random equipment to fight by your side until they die. They do not level up and will act with the same AI as your pet or other companions, passive aggressive or defensive. When they die, they die. The shrine will look like a small tower with a door.
7. Casino Shrine
A shrine that when clicked queries the gambling merchant's screen and conjures it up for you on the spot. There is no price associated with any of the items, they're all free, but you can only click one item, then the shrine becomes inactive. Shrine looks like a sundial, but instead of a dial, it's a roulette wheel.
8. Skill Shrine
A shrine that grants you a skill boost of 1 point to any skill of your choosing. This is permanent. Shrine looks like a statue of an open book. Extremely rare spawn.
9. Stat Shrine
A shrine that grants you +5 stat points to distribute as you see fit. This is permanent. Shrine looks like a statue of a horn of plenty spilling golden water out of the opening of the horn. Another rare shrine, but not as rare as the Skill shrine
10. Portal Shrine
Opens a portal to a random level in the same fashion as the Portal Beast does. Shrine looks like a stone archway with foliage creeping up the sides and the portal appears in the center of the archway after activated.
*more to come as I think of them, only 10 ideas for now must get back into playing but there's hundreds of ideas I need to put here before I forget them.
