Create a Boss

Neat little game I thought up:
Everyone take turns creating each new boss that we encounter in like a darkforum RPG.

At the top of the post type in the bosses' number according to it's order in the game, the first person makes boss one, then second makes boss two. The bosses HP should correspond like this: Boss one has 100 HP, then the next boss will have double that, so boss two will have 200 HP, and three will have 400, et cetera.

1.) Put your bosses' name
2.) HP
3.) Type (Beast, Human, Humanoid, Elf, Dwarf, Gnome, etc.)
4.) Elemental category (Fire, Water, Lightning, Wind, Ice, Poison, Earth, Light, Dark, Holy)
5.) You may have 10 of the following moves: Fireball, Firestorm, Aqua Jet, Tidal Wave, Lightning Bolt, Lightning Storm, Tornado, Freeze, Blizzard, Scourge, Fissure, Earthquake, Photon Beam, Night Shade, Holy, Sleep, Stun, Confuse, Berserk, Blind, Haste, Slow, Drain, Regen, Cure, Heal, Soft, ForceField, Barrier, Gravi)
Then feel free to make a description.

This does not make allot of sense unless we already have an RPG going that we can base the Bosses around. Things we need to address;

1: What kind of world it is (Reality, reality horror, reality fantasty (etc), Fantasy, fantasy horror, fantasy reality, (etc).
2: What time period it takes place in (Old Greece, Renaissance Area, Modern Day, typical Forgotten Realms type stuff).
3: Is it a complicated RPG with lots of rules or an easy to fallow RPG like Munchkin games?


Suggestions:
Since an RPG has been talked about for a while now I'll throw some things in.
It should take place with the forum members actually a part of the game, so if I joined up I'd be Alpha in the game as I'm Alpha here, nerdy white guy with some awesome ideas.
Although I think the best idea is to keep it simple;
Die rolls are computer generated.
Typical Forgotten realms game.
Game master changes at the end of every game.

I don't have any RPG books, so I don't have any idea really for rules.

In a PLACE of JUSTICE, a FORUM spouted the most MONUMENTAL, GENIUS role playing game the INTERNET has ever bared WITNESS TO.


The objective of the RPG is to maintain control of the Four Swords (Fire, Water, Earth, Air). Each player controls one of each element to draw them to them (be it a ring, a dagger, a necklace, a playing card).
Players duke it out killing each other as they build alliances and they crumble.

The game is played on a 9x9 tile. You can attack the any person to your immediate square ahead of you, left and right. You cannot occupy a square if it is already occupied.

The Four Swords are distributed randomly to players, and contain half the power of any random player.
Once somebody has become too strong to take down the round ends, and a new game begins. Best of 2/3 games won per player will win the round.



If that sounds good maybe I'll post rules for character creation, boss battles, random elements, three dimensional rules, ect.

The rest I'm a bit hazy on, ten of the fallowing moves, is that 1 move ten times or ten different moves, or mix and match 1-10 moves (Like 3 Drain, 2 cure, 1 fissure)?

Wow. Alpha's acting more like Fun Police than anyone on this forum. He's just spouted more rules in this thread than I've seen on DF in the last 8 years.

Fr0g!!! Where are you?



Grid card games suck.

That's it, if you ever play this game I'll be sure to stick you on a square that's made of fire, and quicksand filled with oil.

That makes alot of sense, like each move you can have, you can sacrifice another move to make that move a higher level. Like you can use all 10 moves and end up with a lv.5 Drain and a lv.5 Cure. The rest is simple, we will make the story based on the bosses, you decide why our heroes meet up with the boss, the setting, time of day, situation, etc, decide what key items you might need to beat them, or items you might recieve upon their perish.

That's all classic role playing ideas there. Since cool items are all the hotness lets just go Experience Points. Yeah boring I know, but hear me out:

Every Player starts at level 0.
For every NPC you kill you get 2 XP. Every 50 XP you earn you gain 1 level.
For every Boss you kill you gain 30 XP.
Instead of a Boss dropping Über cool items, instead once you reach level 3 you can create your own Boss, this gives incentive to kill Bosses. For every Boss killed, a new one has to be created, with your Boss template in the first post.
Items are gained from Treausre Chests, Killing random NPC characters, and the Market.

That sounds great, that way you have to kill random NPC chars and adventure for gold and treasure.

Lvl 3: Aqua Jet
Lvl 3: Freeze
Lvl 1: Blizzard

Soron uses the Claw of Crow's Feat, an enchanted Necklace that sparkles blue and control over the icy elements.

Claw of Crow's Feat: + 1 to Hero to Freeze once obtained.

Resell value of Claw of Crow's Feat: 25 Silver.
(Items gained from Bosses shouldn't make the character too strong. Either a very small Bonus or a slightly good resell value.)

Currency:
Bronze Coins (weakest, 1 Bronze is equal to 1 Bronze)
Silver Coins (Second weakest, 1 Silver is equal to 5 Bronze)
Gold Coins (strongest, 1 Gold is equal to 20 Bronze)/Rubies, Sapphires,Diamonds, Emeralds*

Currency is found in Chests, NPCs, and Bosses.

*Rubies, Sapphires, Diamonds and Emeralds are worth the same (in a trade to a merchant) as a Gold coin. However they are more valuable as you can socket the items into Swords, Helms, etc to give them a small boost in power.

Using these ideas, we can create a Hero:

Sir David of Isothan
Human
25 Hit Points
Earth

Sir David of Isothan carries the Sword of the Golem.
Sir David of Isothan carries the Shield of the Witch.
Sir David of Isothan carries the Armor Isothan.

Sword of the Golem: +2 earth damage to attack.
Shield of the Witch: +2 to Defense.
Armor of Isothan: +1 to Armor.


Hit Points should be about 1/4 of the Boss.

More to come later.

Sir David of Isothan History

Raised under a Golem Maker Father he strives to learn all he can about making golems and holding up the Honor of his Name and that of his home city Isothan.

Create 1 Golem level 0
Create 2 Golem level 0 (Craet 1 Golem must be at level 3 in order to gain 1 of Create 2 Golem Level[s])
Lightning Bolt level 0



Hero's Gain Abilities only when they gain enough Xp. You must list the abilities you wish to gain in your starting character. You can only gain an ability (+1 to that ability for every 50 Xp along with a boost of +1 to your level).
The creation of your Hero at the maximum level (the level you stop using it at) will become a Boss after it's done being used. This eliminates the need for new bosses all the time.

Sir David of Isothan learns from the elves of Il'athe that the coins of their ancients like deep in the forest of Il'athe. Sir David sets off into the forest in search of the gold, unaware the demonic Il'athe elves had just planned to have them feed their master, a demi-beast they worshipped.

Razen, the cat beast
HP: 200
Darkness
Lv.2 Scourge
Lv.2 Sleep
Lv.2 Drain
Lv.2 Berserk
Lv.1 Night Shade
Lv.1 Blind

I was thinking, now that the bosses are getting stronger, then maybe we can the element of strengths and weaknesses.

Here are the rules

If you add an elemental Strength (protection against a magic attack) then you must add an elemental weakness as well.

If you add a status effect immunity (e.g. immunity to stone) than you must sacrifice one move or one level of one move.

I chose mostly status effect moves on this boss to open up different elements of the game such as status that include immobility and accuracy, also I made her a little harder to kill with a moderate level drain spell, overall a simple weak boss though.

Razen uses the -Razen's Fang- which adds +1 exp to every boss battle the wearer wins.
Sell Value: 80 Silver Pieces

Yeah... We are gonna need a list of what all these abilities do, how much damage, how much to die rolls they effect, etc.
I'll let you start it off, as you seem to have a general idea of what you want.

Obviously some spells are better than others, so they will need higher MP cost so only advanced bosses can use them.
