I'm decided to resurrect an old project of mine, and to finish it up. The concept was simple: One player takes the role of the Dungeon Master, and the rest of the players are Heroes. The Dungeon Master has to defend his dungeon heart for one hour. The Heroes have one hour to crush the dungeon heart. Pretty straightforward.

But here's where it gets more interesting. From the DM's perspective, the game is a normal top-down RTS. The catch is, the enemies are significantly stronger than you - Since they're all powerful heroes. The DM's units are cheap and plentiful, and you can see the entire dungeon - no fog of war for you.

The Heroes have to contend with Fog of War in the dungeon, and never quite knowing what they'll run into. Hordes of enemies will be around every corner. Most will fall easily under your attacks, but each enemy has a specialty - watch out for clever traps. Spellcasters must beware, for several dungeon creatures have feedback abilities, etc. Hidden traps are a bane for melee heroes.

The map is already mostly done. It's littered with features, but it's not overloaded or overwhelming like most maps of it's kind. Being the DM has a bit of learning curve to get real good at it, but it's still a ton of fun. The game automatically scales to balance, also. Heroes start with 1000 gold split amongst them, so the more Heroes, the less gold per player. The DM gets an additional 100 gold per Hero at start, and it also increases his base gold income. (Gold for the DM is earned automatically every 30 seconds) - In addition, all of the creatures and structures in the dungeon increase their health and damage for each Hero.

A full party could mean normally weak zombies turn into hordes of terror, so it's important for Heroes to work together. But if the Heroes work together and select a good class combination, they can be quite a force themselves. Warriors are lethal as it is, and when backed by a Cleric he can be almost unstoppable. Throw a Sorcerer into the mix for powerful AOE attacks, and you've quite a match on your hands.

5 Dungeon Masters and 23 Heroes give the game quite a few options on how to be played. Each Dungeon Master has a few unique structures, abilities and creatures. Every Hero has 4 powerful skills.

I plan on releasing a test map so for the public (since I can't host from my computer for some reason) but I want to finish up a few more things first. I have the Heroes all picked out, but i'm missing a few abilities here and there, and I could use some ideas.

Here's the incomplete Heroes, along with the current skill list setup for them.
Skills in ( ) are normal skills. Skills in { } are ultimate skills. Normal skills have 5 levels. Ultimate skills have 2 levels.

Monk
(Skilled Evasion) Adds a chance to dodge strikes. Gets quite powerful. (15%/20%/25%/30%/35%)
(Stunning Blow) Adds a chance to stun an opponent when struck. Also powerful.
(Counterattack) Reflects a % of damage back at enemies.
{?} ?

Arcane Archer
(?) ?
(?) ?
(Summon Scout) Channel. Creates a 'locust' scout owl to fly to the target point. Lasts 15 seconds. Detects traps.
{?} ?

Shield Bearer
Has no cast animation, so mostly passive abilities and attack-related abilities.
(Defend) Normal Defend ability, but considerably more powerful. High chance to deflect arrows back.
(?) ?
(?) ?
{Mana Shield} Powerful mana shield to protect the Shield Bearer.

Spellweaver
Focus is on support by manipulating spells. Has a natural Brilliance Aura.
(Replenish Mana) Transfers mana to friendly units. Autocast.
(?) ? [Some sort of attack]
(Siphon Mana) Drains 20/30/40 mana per second, for 10 seconds. 15 second cooldown.
{Magic Defense} Immune to magic while active, but reduces move speed by 30%.

Goblin Tinker
(Construct) Spellbook. Contains various things the Tinker can build.
- [Clockwork Goblin] Creates a permanent small goblin robot. Cheap, moderate cooldown.
- [Automatic Turret] Builds a sentry gun emplacement. Lasts 90 seconds.
- [Clockwork Golem] Creates a powerful Clockwork Golem. Lasts 90 seconds. 5 second delay.

I think the concept sounds pretty fun. I haven't played a map with the same Genre as this before (however, I rarely go on battle.net). I think this could be quite a fun map, once completed. Good Luck with it. :)

I've been play testing the map with friends, we've had up to 5 players on the map so far. It's been very popular, and it's very intense. I personally love playing a Hero, i'm not real big on being the DM. But that's because I like the teamwork aspect and the strategy of how to attack the dungeon. One of my buddies absolutely rocks as a DM.

The nice thing about the design is not only the autobalance, but how the Hero levels tip the scale. With the Hero party all at level 1, the DM has the advantage. But as the Heroes hack and slash their way through the dungeon and level up, the power starts to tip to their favor. I've only had 1 out of about 18 games end in under 40 minutes. It's the last 20 or so where it gets very, very difficult for the DM to hold out. When you've got a party of 4 Heroes - all level 20, packing all their skills, and a crap load of items, trailing a crew of Mercs - it can be pretty tricky to stop them.

Usually the game ends with a 5-minute gap. Either the DM died with 5 minutes or less left on the clock, or the game ends and the Heroes only needed another 5 minutes or so to trash the heart. So far, with 2-6 players, the game seems to be VERY well balanced.

This could be a very interesting map, one of those games where any role sounds fun to play. I hope to see it on battle.net sometime :D

I disagree :p passives are uber!

I agree, this concept sounds sooo interesting. Can't wait for this!

Please describe the heroes so we can help.

Monk:
Fury of the Monks - when activated, drains mana per second but gives each attack a chance to go into 'fury' mode, dramatically increasing attackspeed for 3 seconds. Can only occur once every 5 seconds.

Arcane Archer
Arcane Shot (duh) - after taking a few seconds to aim, the archer fires a deadly and powerful arcane shot at a target, dealing massive damage to the target and minor splash damage to nearby enemies. (base: frost nova with a casting time and no slow, unless you want it to)

Accuray - [passive] - gives each shot to strike a vital point, dealing critical and multiplied damage.

I g2g now but I'll have more later.

I got some ideas / notes:

- For the Shield Bearer you can give him an attack like the Mountain King's Avatar, with the idea that for like 20 seconds he does extra damage, takes less and pretty much goes wild.

- Also, why would the Shield Bearer have a Mana Sheild? Doesn't seem to fit. Maybe you can have an ability based off that, but under a different name. For example, if you can change the Shield Bearer's mana bar to say energy, then hits would drain his energy instead, which makes a lot more sense.

- Repelish Mana on the Spellweaver seems kind of a waste as they need a lot of mana over giving it away, in most games, maybe not this one, I obviously don't know. But maybe you can give that ability to the Monk instead. That'd make their role a lot more interesting, since most of their abilities are passive, the player will have more to do and this also means that they have more mana to spare, cause they are not using it for spells and such.

- Other than that, for the damage spell of the Spellweaver you may want to consider using the Blood Mage's Flame Strike attack (if that's the right name, can't recall), which is basically a pillar of fire that gets many units in a small region and looks very magic orientated.

- Arcane Archer might want to have an ability similar to stealth, in which they become invisible temporarily.

- Finally, the Goblin Tinker is the only one with the spell book, so he seems to overpower the rest. An idea would be to either let players just choose one possible unit to create, or have them all on the same cooldown, so only one can be used at a time.

Hope this all helps you in some way or another. Good luck making this map. :D

Yeah, I was looking at the Monk closer this morning and realized I had given him all passive abilities so far. I don't like the idea of that either. I need some better ideas for making him a little more engaging. I want him to have at least two passives, I think. Due to the nature of the mana balance in the game, it actually makes him more powerful.

See, I setup Hitpoints and Mana kinda interesting. To keep things more 'realisitic', HP and MP regeneration has been set VERY low. Spellcasters boast a slightly increased MP regeneration, and Melee a slightly increased HP regeneration, but not enough to help much. So, Heroes rely very heavily on Health and Mana potions from the stores. Not very expensive, but enough to eat up precious cash - in addition, it eats up an item slot. (Items stack, but still)

Most of the Hero abilities have long cooldowns and such too. Generally, the abilities are pretty powerful with a solid mana cost and long cooldown. Makes the Hero gameplay more strategic.

Let's see, as for posted ideas:
I kinda like Accuracy, but Critical Strike is so overused. Maybe it should be an activated ability that temporarily doubles or triples the Archer's damage? Shouldn't be too hard, I don't think.

Stavious made a good point about the Mana Shield. I'll rename it to something else, but the general concept will be the same. How about Shield Focus?

I'm not sure I agree on the Spellweaver. See, there's two classes of Heroes - normal and special. Normal is mostly D&D based: Monk, Barbarian, Warrior, Paladin, Ranger, etc. Special is misc stuff: Battle Cleric, Goblin Tinker, Spellweaver, etc. The Spellweaver is a support character designed to assist other Heroes, by boosting their spellcasting abilities. Primarily, that means replenishing the mana of close allies.

I like the idea of giving the Arcane Archer some sort of Stealth ability, too.

Oh, and the Tinker isn't the only one with a spellbook like that. The Wizard class is LOADED with spells. (Two abilities are spellbooks with 5 spells each, and his ultimate is a spellbook that contains 2 spells. All told, by level 20 he knows 12 spells, plus whatever his main ability ends up being) And I don't think that's unfair - It just adds an element of flexibility. Each of the Wizard's spells will serve a different purpose, requiring him to stay very focused, and learn when to utilize each. The Thief has a spellbook ability for setting a variety of traps. The Shield Bearer now has a 'Guard Stance' spellbook which allows him to pick several stances. (Neutral/Pierce Guard/Magic Guard/Melee Guard), etc. There's a few that get that.

I'll post a list of all the Heroes in a bit, after I work on it for a bit tonight.

So I take it I can count on some people to help me test this out online? :shades:

I'm furious! This was an amazing idea, and I can't believe I didn't come up with it! I want your map now! Not really that there's anything I could do about it, but... hey, nice idea. I'd love to play this. A suggestion I have before I give a list of skill ideas: Make multiple maps, importing the triggers from the map you're creating as of now to keep it constant. Include a different terrain for each: a fiery dungeon, an icy temple, ancient ruins, things like that. Incorporate the same heroes and DMs into each (except for an exclusive hero or 2 depending on the map). Variation is key: a ruins stage may have plenty of traps and sand or rock based monsters, while a fire themed dungeon may contain pools of lava and enemies that passively deal fire damage. It's all up to you.

Monk
(Burning Fist) The monk's fist moves with blazing speed, dealing heavy fire damage to an enemy. Attach a "Green Dragon" attack projectile to his "hand, right" attachment point for the ability.
{Burning Spirit} The monk creates a furious flame inside all of his nearby allies, increasing their attack rate and damage greatly for a short time. Base it on Inner Fire, set the Area of Effect high, and make the targets Self and Allies. I forgot which stats Howl of Terror reduces, but you could set those to negative values and set the targets if the attack rate and damage isn't an option.

Spellweaver
(Mana Rift) Creates a surge of mana that travels in a line, damaging all enemies it hits. Based on Crushing Wave.

I'd love to help if possible!

Keep up the good work!

OK yeah, this is why my ideas may not fit now, see I thought those were ALL of your heroes, which they apparently aren't...
I'll be happy to check out all of them and give you some more ideas when you post them up then :) .

Here's the current Hero list. This is still undergoing revision, like I said before. The list is split into PRIMARY and SECONDARY Heroes. The Primary section is all core Heroes, mostly designed around D&D. Secondary Heroes are a little more unique, featuring some obscure concepts. They tend to be a little trickier to play, and most of them are designed to be more of a 'support' class.

Some of the numbers below have been tinkered with in the game already, so don't worry about them too much. Balance is being finely tuned, so a lot of values will change. Also, don't forget that Heroes have 20 levels and 5 skills, all together. 3 Primary Skills (5 ranks each), 1 Ultimate (2 ranks), and an Attribute Skill (3 ranks).

Also, I know a lot of the skills are pretty standardized, just reused and cleaned up a bit for each character. It's supposed to be that way. There's a lot of great skills in this game already, and with proper tuning and planning, they still rock in any project. Some skills i've just cleaned up by creating AOE versions of them, with channel. (Like Divine Protection, which is an AOE Inner Fire)

Alright, here's some more.
Wizard
(Spellcraft) Passive - Adds 2 intelligence per level. Also, when the Wizard uses a mana potion, he gains an extra 20 mana per level of the skill. (The second part needs to be triggered).
(Incantations)
...
...
...
[Mana Spirit] Semi-expensive spell based on Carrion Beetles. Creates a floating spirit that can replenish the mana of all nearby allies (Brilliance Aura with different tooltips and icon) passively. Lasts 20 seconds.

...

EDIT: And one more thing: you never answered me on the idea for multiple maps. I'd be more than happy to design some compatible with the game if you'd like to do that.

Those are all perfect, and fit brilliantly. I'm adding 'em to the list now.

And sorry about not answering that. I'm not going to do multiple maps quite yet, because this one is such a huge pain in the ass as it is. However, i'm thinking about doing a second one, and trying to factor in random terrain and some other features, to keep the shape of the dungeon changing every game.

Right now, the dungeon layout is pretty much fixed. I'm considering adding some doorways and having the game randomly delete a few, just to add minor changes, but that's it for now. Let's finish up this map, release it to the public and see what the world thinks of it for now. Then, we consider making a bunch more - and that way we know where we need improvement, too. :shades:

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
