Hello, mid week, new questions
Again, this is just idea generation currently, I have no scripts to base / show from yet.
So the world I’m working on is very low-magic, gritty etc blah blah.
With 2da changes, I currently have 4 classes; Archer (Ranger -spell-less, some extra feats), Skald (Bard -spell-less, toughened up), Fighter and Berzerker (Barbarian - unlimited raging).
I want to introduce a shaman type as a spell-using option. I was working with Druid and have removed all healing spells etc.
The big thing I’d like to create is a “Shaman” type feel, so that the more players in the shamans tribe(party), the stronger they become.
Not sure best route to achieve this? What are peoples thoughts?
My initial thoughts are to have an item on the Shaman PC that checks amount of PCs in party, or checks for “InTribe = 1” or something, and grants Spell Slots - This wouldn’t work however, as people leaving or joining etc the Shaman’s spells would constantly be getting un-memorised and empty spellbook slots.
Second thought is to just boost Wisdom per tribal member, but I don’t feel this is very exciting or achieves much power, assuming 2-5 people in party max.
So I’ve arrived at the idea of granting infinite cast spells which grow in power the more party members. I’m not sure how to go about this, I know the Arelith server has infinite-cast spells but I have no clue how these are scripted, a rather rudimentary method would be to have a PC Item on the Shaman which allows them unlimited/day castings of a spell, but only usable if variables are met “NumberOfTribeMembers=2”.
Another Idea, on the Isle of Thain server, there is a necklace that converts all Healing Spells into Area of Effect spells which hit all party members. Again no idea how this is achieved mechanically, but maybe this would be a cooler, thematic option, other than infinite spells? The Shaman won’t have cure spells, maybe they could cast Mass Bull’s Strength, Mass Barkskin etc.
What are peoples ideas on the easiest / most effective solution to implement this? (Sorry this is a massive ramble I think!)
