Wanna be in my game? (Original Character design contest)

Post by Arc on Thu Nov 18, 2010 11:30 am

I said before that I programmed a text-RPG in java. One of my side projects was creating a tournament/fighter game using the same battle system from that game. Also has mostly the same characters, plus other originals I made.

That's a bit of an understatement, there's over 64 characters of mine in this. Each one has a unique artificial intelligence and fighting style. But even I dont want them all to take up those roster slots. 64's a nice number so there's an even amount for a tournament. I'm kicking some characters off and have some free spots SOOO

I want you to design your own original character for use in the game. What I want is:

-First and Last name
-Male/female (both is not a sex, not yet anyway)
-Class/job
-stat distribution (Stats are HP, strength, defense, magic, magic defense, speed. You can balance if you want.)
-fighting style (attack, support, defense, physical, magical)
-unique move (just give me an idea and I'll fit it so it's not broken)
-personality/backstory
-weapon (if you dont put anything down, it's assumed they fight with their hands.)
-weakness/resistance (pick 1 for each: fire, ice, electric, wind, earth, light, dark, physical) *alternatively you can have immunity to debuffs or status effects but at the cost of another weakness*


My example:
-Billy Goat
-Goat
-Male
-High emphasis on strength, low magic defense, balanced everywhere else
-Physical offense, with some support (debuffs and buffs for self)
-Alpha Charge: Physical electric move that stuns
-Since the dawn of time there has always been a Billy sent to earth by the norse gods to provide strength and inspiration to man (as well as feces). This billy uses thor's gift of electricity as all his past selves have, and is really mischievious.
-Weapons are horns, no special properties
-Resists electricity/weak to earth

Idk how many slots will be freed up, and idk if this'll take off. But if I like your character I will put it in. No image is necessary BTW.

Masuyo Magnus
-Male
-High Magic Str and Magic Def. Above average speed, pathetic Atk and Def
-Magical fighting style focusing on a combination of multiple swift spells and slow powerful spells. Uses a few restraining spells to keep enemies from escaping attacks
-Cry of Lightning:A lightning bolt shatters the enemy's defenses for a while dealing damage also
-Masuyo is a carefree guy, easy to entertain, yet quick to be bored by something. Despite being sarcastic and an asshole, hes the last guy to ever pick a fight with someone. he kinda just wants to find someone to hang out with and be friends with for the most part. Has the power of electricity/lightning because he punched a hole into his Xbox360 after it RROD'd while it was still plugged in, getting himself electrocuted. Instead of dying, he raged so hard that he got up with all the voltage from the shock still in him
-Uses no weapon, shoots magic blasts from his hands/creates a shield of magic energy to defend himself
-Resist Lightning Wind and Light. Strong against Debuffs/Status Effects. Weak to Ice Fire Dark and Phys. Neutral to earth

Alright this sounds interesting let me try to think of something

Name: Serene Fimbulvetr
Gender: Female
Class: Reaper of Winter
HP: Medium
STR: High
DEF: Medium-Low
SPD: High
MGC: Non-existant
MDF: Low
Fighting Style: Attack/Physical
Unique move: Freezing of Thames: All characters with the exception of Serene will lose traction and all of Serene's Attacks are now based off of the Ice element. Dealing double damage to those with a weakness of Ice and normal damage to those with an affinity for Ice, and 1.5 for those with those in the middle. (If this doesn't work let me know I can got somethin else is mind).
Backstory: The guardian of Fimbulvetr the long winter, who protects it for Odin so that the eventual beginning of Ragnarök may commence. Many a century has passed with her guarding Winter, though her role will soon end with the start of the second harsh Winter.
Weapon of Choice:Scythe
Resistance: Ice
Weakness: Dark

@ Tatsuya:

lol, I've got a reaper character that mirrors that very closely except its electric element, different unique move and more magic based than offense.

I month ago i added equipable weapons to the game (before you just had to imagine) and they have properties such as elements, status effects, debuffs when they hit someone. Our other reaper's scythe has a small chance of instant death if it hits, for example.

As for your unique move, it's doable. If I was able to properly encorporate landmines and firewalls as defensive moves I can certainly do that.

But uh... I'll hold off judgement for now. There are at least 2 slots for characters in this topic.

Alright, thanks for the heads up on that, you got no problems with me making another one and keeping it under wraps in case if that one gets the axe sometime later?

Well the reaper we have is a character based off my friend IRL, those guys are there to stay. I can have two as long as they are noticebly different.

I mean, I have... 4 or 5 male characters who just fight with melee skills. Thats not including hybrids or ranged people either.

-haruko renka
-female
-potion maker
-magic and speed good
-magic defense and hp normal
-strength and defense bad
-support magical
-midnight fairy- drinks a potion that does various things like extra speed, recover hp, decrease casting time, etc. o, and she gets fairy wings ^^

-a cute girl who just wants to be rescued by her prince in shining armor when she was young and learned much about healing magic cuz she wants to heal her prince when he saves her (cuz they usually end up in a big battle right b4 saving a princess in the stories). This fantasy continues until it actually happens; she was kidnapped and imprisioned by an evil person and decided that it did not feel as great as she once thought, and thus learned how to use her previously good healing magic in an offensive style leading to her escape. and now here she is, searching for her prince instead of waiting any longer.(she read a story that had a prince captured and a princess rescuing him after she got out)

-potions and flowers- cuz its pretty and magical
-weak to physical and ice, strong against debuffs and earth

she is a bit of an air head, but yea. comedic relief. think a mix of ling xaioyu from tekken, xianghua from soul calibur, and/or evergreen from fairy tail.

Post by Nightmare on Fri Nov 19, 2010 4:58 am

-First and Last name: Christopher Elias

-Male

-Class/job: Vampire Hunter/Priest

-Stat distribution: High power and speed, balanced in other areas

-Fighting style: Attack/physical, with a little bit of support and magic

-Unique move: Retribution: Returns half the damage a single enemy has inflicted upon itself. If the enemy hasn't attacked yet, they will receive no damage. If the enemy used a debuff or status effect spell/attack, it will turn it back onto them. If the move is not used and the enemy keeps attacking, the damage is accumulated.

-Backstory: Christopher's parents were killed by the creatures of the night, and since then, he has vowed to hunt them until there remain none. He strengthened his faith and learned the arts of combat and vampire hunting, and has since been fighting the creatures of the night, saving thousands of innocent people from their icy grip.

-Personality: Christopher has rock hard confidence, and for good reason: he has uncanny fighting ability. Nothing has been able to defeat him since the start of his career, and he believes nothing ever will, but he's not ridiculously overconfident; he knows when to stop, and it doesn't impair his judgement any. Though underneath his cocky attitude is a heart of gold, and he is always ready to help others in need. He's not disrespectful to his fellow humans and doesn't act cocky towards them, just when he confronts the creatures of the night. Unless they're evil, in which case, they're no different from the creatures of the night. His optimistic, intense and energetic attitude is always a reassurance.

His catchphrases are:

"You can't beat me!" (when confronted with a powerful opponent [who may or may not make a boast])
"You think so!" (when his opponent makes a boast)
"You caught me off-guard!" (when hit)
"That's it!" (when his job is done)

-Weapon: Martial arts (mostly kicking and some wrestling throws), Golden Cross, Holy Water (implemented as one if possible, if not then just the first one)

-Weakness: Dark
-Resistance: Light

Did I do it right?!

-Clatter
-Genderless. looks and behaves like a male
-wood and metal construct
HP- pretty good
strength- ok i guess
defense- mediocre
magic- none
magic defense- very good we're talkin' almost immune
speed- spastic
-fighting style- clunky unpredictable movements. basically hand to hand combat that takes advantage of irregular joints.
-unique move- temporarily gains control of high magic ability and fires off an energy beam.
-personality/backstory- A pile of junk parts that was animated by some poorly disposed of magical potions. he is very poorly constructed phisically but because of his magical origins has an extremely high resistance to most types of magic. Personality wise he literally has a screw loose and can be quite unpredictable, switching between personalities and voices like a broken television. his asymmetrical parts don't line up correctly so when he fights his opponents are often taken aback by sudden changes in his reach and joint movements. cant use magic at all but if knocked about in just the right way he can do a critical/finisher magic beam.
-weapon- none
-weakness- physical and maybe fire
-resistance- a little bit of everything if possible/ electric and maybe a status resistance

not good with balancing but hopefully the character idea is worthwhile

6 entries so far, and 2 of them I REALLY like. Not telling which ones yet though .>.

There will be 4 slots total, and its unlikely to change unless I think others are better than my characters.

(and thanks for contributing so far, everyone)

-personality/backstory
She has a very cold and aggressive personality. She prefers to do things secretly, but brutally. She grew up around alot

possible, but she does have the tendency to talk very loud when she gets irritated. She loves her job, and will often
take on many jobs/requests at once, some even without payment, but finishes them quickly and efficiently. She

I forgot to say that I've just encorporated combos into the battle system. A character gains points when they hit someone or take damage (or fall into a trap). They spend all their points when they have enough and use an undodgable chain of attack.

Mmm, point being your special move Kilvas would work best as a combo. I dont have enough physical females. They're all magic or mixed and the mixed ones tend to suck. How about I give it a special move that grants immunity from attacks until you attack or get hit by a light spell? It works with the shadows and its very ninja.

Cool, sounds fine with me. And If/when you ever need a pic of her, let me know. Lol.

Yeah, I could add a light element attack with the cross but otherwise you're a fighter.

I can only use so much for your special move without it being broken though.

-Hank Jones
-Male
-Zombie Cowboy

-HP - High
-Strength - Medium
-Defense - Medium High
-Magic - Low
-Magic defense - Medium
-Speed - Medium Low
-Ranged/Attack

- You Gotta Shoot Em In The Head - Hank takes aim for one turn at an enemy, his defense rises for that turn while taking aim. When his next turn rolls around his attack and accuracy double, doing an automatic critical hit. ((Fix it to how the gameplay is gonna be, I assumed it was turn base.))

- Hank realized one day, that he was a zombie. He wasn't sure how it happened, or where he had come from before, but he decided to wander some more. For as long as he's been aware, he's been wandering for 100 years, though he can't remember why, or where he came from. His mind is flaky, and often he forgets people, places, names, or what he just did. Often he'll find himself next to a dead body and forget that he was even the one who killed the person. He wears worn out clothes, covered in dirt, and it's sometimes hard to tell if a part of his outfit is clothes at all, or if it's just his decaying flesh. His unique article of clothing is a large cowboy hat, he never takes off. He claims it helps him to remember things, and refers to it sometimes as his brain. "Hold on, I gotta put my brain on." He has a raspy voice and likes to spout one liners over the people he had just killed, if he remembers doing it.
-weapon: A Crossbow. He also holds a small knife on his side, but often forgets that it's there.
-Resistance: Physical
-Immunity: Status effects
-Weaknesses: Light, Fire

One liners:
"...Eh? Huh? Oh..Was that me? Where am I?" -After kill
"Heh. Don't lose your head!" - After 'You gotta shoot em in the head' tech.
"Ow. That hurts! ...What hurts? Who are you?!" - After getting hit with a weakness
"Haha! Hey, don't worry, I've been there before, it's not that bad. I think..." -After kill
"I may be a zombie, but I....Uh.....huh?"
"Hey, it's happened before, it can't be THAT bad. Ow...." -On death

hahaha...

I have a zombie from my first game. I also have a cowboy from my 2nd. With the exception of a crossbow for a weapon and the headshot thing (which would be easy to do if I decided to pick this one) he plays exactly like those two since they're physical fighters.
