So I've already spoken with three or four members about this, but I'm working on putting up a sort of board game thread on here. It's basically a table top RPG, but I made it myself. Before I post it however, I'm going to need to test I out so I can see if it needs additional balancing, and so that I can get a general idea of how high enemy HP and Attack power should be (don't wanna wipe the entire party in the first fight).

If you'd be interested in helping me test it out, either reply here or PM me. I'm not sure if the testing will take place in private or openly in the forum, so be prepared for either.
I really appreciate any and all help I can get with this. :)

I got summoned but the thread has no summons what sorcery is this

I'll be more than happy to help. My free time isn't as high as it used to be, but I compensate it with motivation and curiosity about new things.

I hope we can get enough people to get this started, site activity doesn't give quite the positive vibe to accomplish it. Please prove me wrong.

I'm in for giving this a shot. While things have been relatively slow for the other game we're doing on the boards, I was surprised at how well it actually fits the platform and I'd like to see more games like that being played online.

I also see my summon is imaginary.

But i'm in. :) It's sounding interesting, and maybe it becomes trending like Monopoly Vizzed or so. Anything we need to do for the test in order to start it, though? (besides playing, as i actually meant what preparations we need to do for this)

EDIT: I favourited this game.

EX Palen : Ah, purrfect (puns are funs)! I didn't expect this kind of turnout either honestly. It's pretty exciting.


m0ssb3rg935 : Thanks, man. I'm really hoping it does well. If so I'd be up for making more in the future. I've always felt that games are what makes forums really shine.


Eniitan : Ah, gomen, imouto. I knew you were into RPG video games, but had no idea you were interested in table top RPGs. I'll be certain to put you at the top of my list for any notifications on future ideas should I make another.


MarioLucarioFan64 : No sir, just be ready when it starts, and have fun!


supernerd117 :
zanderlex :
Thanks guys. I really appreciate your participation. :D

Everyone : Fake summon ftw! :3 Thanks for joining in, everyone. I'll summon you back sometime over the next day or so, just as soon as I get everything sorted out. I do ask one more thing of you though: once we begin, offer your honest opinion and feedback. If you feel anything needs balancing, or if the battle system is lacking, don't hesitate to let me know. I have a few ideas that I can incorporate that I originally cut because I didn't want things to be overly complex, but if it would be better with them added back, I can easily do so.

Thanks again!

MarioLucariofan64 - (Sorry for the summon last time when you already had it favorited btw)
zanderlex :

After a few more hours of crunching numbers, rebalancing, altering some character features, and all that jazz, we're ready to start battle one of our (probably) two battle test. I'll let you folks play through the first one, then I'll jump into the second to see how well the predetermined adjustments made to account for player number adjustments works.


So to start off, pick a character! Each category (class) has only two characters, so first come first serve. :P Sorry, Palen, MLF64, and Eniitan -- you three are probably at a disadvantage in character selection due to your time zones.


----
Simple overview of how battle works so that you know who you want to pick.
Players take turns attacking the enemy. When it's your turn to attack, you are what is known as the attacker (surprising, I know) and the other players are what are known as the supporters.
To attack, you roll the attack dice, and the supporters roll their support dice. The entire group combines their rolls to get the number combination that the attacker needs in order to perform their moves.

Simply put, the more attack dice you have, the more able you are to perform your attacks, but the more support dice you have, the more able you are to help your partners perform their moves. Prefer to be the strong one? Pick a Tank, they are stronger and have more attack dice. Want to be the kind that aids your team members? Pick a Support, they have low attack and HP, and fewer attack dice, but also have more support dice. Want more balance? Pick a Rounder, they have stats and dice totals that fall exactly in between the tanks and supports, and as such are more balanced in gameplay.

If anything is unclear, let me know and I'll share the full description and explain as best I can.


---

•Characters:
Below are the characters that can be chosen, along with their details, some important, some not.
Note that the moves and stats that are listed are only the moves and stats that the character comes with at the start. They will gain more as they level up.

Aaron (claimed by supernerd117)
Category: Tank
Sex: Male
Weapon: Ax
Moves: Swipe -- 5 DMG [any]; Clean sweep -- 10 DMG [four dice totalling 17 or more]

Alicia (claimed by Eniitan)
Category: Tank
Sex: Female
Weapon: Two handed sword
Moves: Pierce -- 5 DMG [any]; Slice -- 10 DMG [four dice showing the same number. ex: 1, 1, 1, 1]

•Kiyun
Category: Rounder
Sex: Male
Weapon: Two daggers
Moves: Stab -- 4 DMG [any]; Rapid strikes -- 7 DMG [four dice showing successive numbers. ex: 1, 2, 3, 4]

•Keiko
Category: Rounder
Sex: Female
Weapon: One handed sword
Moves: Vertical slice -- 4 DMG [any]; Thither and yon' -- 7 DMG [four dice totalling less than 10]

Emmerich (claimed by Palen)
Category: Support
Sex: Male
Weapon: Mace
Moves: Bash -- 3 DMG [any]; Pummel -- 5 DMG [four odd dice. ex: 1,1,3,5]

•Sydney
Category: Support
Sex: Female
Weapon: Bow
Moves: Shoot -- 3 DMG [any]; Sniper shot -- 5 DMG [four even dice. ex: 2, 2, 4, 6]


Additional information:

Category base stats:
Tanks: HP- 20, Attack dice- 4, Support dice- 2, Card Power- 5; Skill- add double the amount of damage dealt to them by enemy's last attack to their next attack on the enemy.

Supports: HP- 10, Attack dice- 2, Support dice- 4, Card Power- 15; Skill- reduces enemy's attack power by 66% for one full round [totals are rounded up, so 1/3 of 4 = 1 instead of 1.333etc.]; Skill 2- Switch dice [all players get special dice that are more likely to result in combinations they need to execute attacks for one full round -- only when they are attacking, not applicable to support rolls. Support dice are not affected.]

Rounders: HP- 15, Attack dice- 3, Support dice- 3, Card Power- 10; Skill- two extra rerolls [supporters can reroll twice more as well. Can be used on any player's turn]

Looks like we're more at an advantage due to time zones, at least if you post at this timing xD

I'll go and pick Emmerich. Fits my style to be a supporting character rather than a frontline fighter.

I was about to post a question about dice rolls, but then I read we can level up so maybe I'll get my answer when we're displayed the full rules. Other than that, I think I understood everything, the test will confirm whether I'm right or wrong.

We're going to go ahead and start at midnight CST (12 AM/0:00 Vizzed time), so if you guys still want to participate, don't forget to pick a character before then.


EX Palen : Emmerich's dice combinations have been changed. He was lacking balance (his moves were too difficult to perform). A few characters had their dice combinations changed, but the others were either to make them simpler, or to make them more difficult because they were too easy.
But yeah, I thought I should let you know about Emmerich since you'd already chosen him.

Sorry I forgot to get this in before midnight. If it's not too late, I'll go ahead and take the other supporting role and go with Sydney. Was letting everyone else get their pick in first.

Sorry guys, I was expecting to be up later than I was, but around 9 I was told that my nephews would be coming over at 7:30, so I had to get in bed early.

So yeah, here we go.
EX Palen :
Eniitan :
supernerd117 :
MarioLucariofan64 -

m0ssb3rg935 : No, you're good. I ended up getting on sixteen hours late myself, so...yeah. xD


Alright folks, we're ready to get test battle number one under way.
Five players.
Running algorithms....
Deedledoo....
Done. :P


Current team:
Aaron (supernerd117)
Alicia (Eniitan)
Kiyun (MarioLucariofan64)
Emmerich (EX Palen)
Sydney (m0ssb3rg935)


Test monster has appeared! :O [/cheese]

Red Dragon:
HP: 100
Attack: 3


We'll cover the rest of the rules once the testing phase is over. For now the rolls and skills are all that matter. Skills, in case I wasn't clear before, can be used once per battle. Note that Tanks can only use their skills when they're the attacker.

Additionally, the enemy attacks every time they are attacked. The damage they deal is indicated by their attack power (3 attack = 3 damage).
Now let's give this battle a go, shall we? If anything is unclear, let me know, as I feel as though typing this up while a five year old is shouting about video games beside me is going to result in me forgetting something...
EDIT: Let's make it a point to summon the person after you when you play, please.
And let me know if you wish to roll or use a skill (if possible).


EDIT 2: Cancel the summons. I'm still getting a feel for how we'll conduct this game as a forum game. I should be posting enough to summon everyone as needed.

Turn order:
supernerd117 1st
Eniitan 2nd
MarioLucariofan64 3rd
Palen 4th
m0ssb3rg935 5th

Eirinn : I don't understand how card power works. And I'm just wanting to make sure, I choose a specific move and we see how that turns out? So, for example, "Clean Sweep" is the only attack in my current arsenal that has a chance of failing. If I were to use it and not the other attack, if I were not to receive the conditions, my attack would fail, right? And in my case, I have 17 dice at my disposal because of support dice, right? That means the odds are very slightly against me getting my condition. 1/5 chance per die to get win condition part. 4 dice required. I tend to break even when there is 20 dice, then. I only have 17. So, I have a 40% chance of success because 1/5 * 15 = 3 (dice that succeed, on average of 15) 2 dice remain. 2 * 1/5 = 2/5 = 40%.

#WordProblems #Probability #Math

Therefore, I choose the safe route. I'll use my normal attack, Swipe.

Eniitan : You're up next!

supernerd117 : Ah, sorry about that. I forgot to explain how it worked properly.
Think of Yahtzee: you can roll up to three times, and keep whichever dice you want from each roll. For your strongest available move right now, you need ten dice totalling more than 42 (numbers are adjusted based on how many players are in the game). If you don't get the numbers you need, your weak attack will automatically activate, as it's basically a fail save to make sure that you don't deal 0 damage.

You will roll your attack dice while attacking, and everyone else will roll their support dice. Everyone's roll will go toward your move. You'll see an example in just a second...


supernerd117's first roll.
Which dice do you want to keep? You can keep as many or as few as you'd like.


Eniitan : Your support roll: 6,4,6. Which do you want to keep and which do you want to reroll? You can keep as many or as few as you want. Since Aaron is attacking, you want to get as many higher numbers as you can.

MarioLucarioFan64 : Your support roll: 2,2,5,6. Read my reply to Eniitan for more information on how to play as a supporter for Aaron.

EX Palen : Your support roll: 1,1,3,4,4. Read my reply to Eniitan for more information.

m0ssb3rg935 : Your support roll: 1,4,5,5,5. Read my reply to Eniitan for more information.

Everyone:
Let me know if you would rather not be summoned to your support turns. If you don't reply, I'll manage your support turns for you.

Already this play test has been helpful. I'm seeing a serious need for rebalancing of the dice system. We'll play another turn or two before I decide on it for sure, but you guys are kind of crushing it already. xD

I'm starting to see how this goes. Doesn't sound difficult to play, though we indeed need to balance things out a bit and get better understanding of what our characters can do.

As it stands, and if I understood everything right, with our rolls we have more than enough to support Aaron's strongest attack. If this is a team effort, then maybe it's worth noting this to my teammates so nobody rerolls unnecessarily. We still have margin, surpassing 42 with so many dices and so many rerolls shouldn't be hard, so we can continue if we want to test rolls.

I'm the one who rolled the lowest, so I'll wait for everyone to give their say. I'm not even needed to support Aaron, therefore more of a reason to stay behind and save a possible reroll without having to risk much.

Btw, now that you mention it, a forum version of Yahtzee wouldn't be that bad either. We've turned into forum games almost all of the traditional board games, so maybe the time has come for Yahtzee to suffer that same fate lol

Yeah, go ahead and summon me for my supports if it's not too much trouble.

So, if I understand correctly, my support dice help him achieve the number he needs? That means he could get by on my dice alone...

I'll keep the three fives and re-roll the other two.
