    You are a deprived warrior.

    Post by Rynn on Fri Sep 28, 2012 3:58 pm

    Hello, welcome to my little game. This is a text version of dark souls, with some modified concepts, but overall, it's dark souls in text! The rules have been modified, and as we continue to play, they will be altered slowly as i come up with better and more efficient systems. The biggest difference inbetween thread 2 and 3 right now, is i've released the spell list, i did an overhaul of the Invasion mechanics (before we get a chance to get mauled by them, i had to!), and i figured out some things that make the post more bearable to read. This means that you won't have a 15 line block of text in the middle of all of my story posts telling you all the items and spells you got. Below is the information I've put together. Have fun, and welcome to dark souls.

    A better explanation of the rules of this game:

    • You can carry 5 consumable items on you, not including your Estus Flask.
    • You may carry 4 rings, 2 equiped, 2 in your inventory.
    • You may carry 4 weapons/shields, all must be currently equipped. You will always use an item in the appropriate hand. Unless you indicate interest in doing otherwise.
    • You can only hold clothing you currently are wearing.
    • Being Hollow reduces your defensive attributes by 50%, not including dodge and parry rate.
    Stats and what they do:

    • Vitality will still increase your total HP. unchanged in function.
    • Endurance will increase your stamina, Stamina now effects dodging, parrying, and in conjunction to your shield quality, what types of attacks you can block, or even parry.
    • Attunement still has the same functionality. However additional attunement is attained at 65, 82, and 99.
    • Strength will have minor/major effects on events that I deem to be strength related, and doubles as it's still intact function of what weapons one may or may not use.
    • Dexterity will have minor/major effects on events that I deem to be dexterity related, and doubled as it's still intact function of what weapons one may or may not use.
    • Resistance dictates what Pyromancies are available to a character.
    • Intelligience dictates what spells are available to the hero, is also has an invisible modifier on how much about the souls world our hero will just naturally understand, although this rarely will actually effect what you are capable of.
    • Faith dictates what spells are available to the hero.

    Defensive Gameplay Functions:

    Defense increases your chance to completely nullify damage. all or nothing. if You have 612 physical defense, you have a 61.2% chance to nullify all incoming damage. Please note, in this system, the Blue Tearstone Ring is useful. Defense has an 800 point cap, as otherwise this stat could get above 1000, which in this system would result in god mode.

    Stamina effects your capacity to do the following.
    • Dodge: 0.1% more of a chance per point.
    • 25-50% weight rolls get a 0.05% more chance per point.
    • Fat Rolls get a 0.03% more chance per point, and a 20% boost from the dodge command.
    • Selecting the dodge command usually gives a 40% increase.
    • The DWGR multiplies your dodge chance by 2.
    • The Grass Crest Shield multiplies your dodge chance by 1.1
    • The MoC muliplies your dodge chance by 1.2
    • The Cloranthy Ring multiplies your dodge chance by 1.25
    • The highest possible dodge chance is 50.1%, unless I missed something. If I missed anything, dodge chance will cap at 50.1%


    Parries are twice as likely to succeed as dodges, but can only be used 3 times per combat engagement, or 3 times per 10 combat actions; whichever event happens -last-.

    Partial Parries block 50% of all incoming damage, and are twice as likely as parries.

    In conclusion, once your dodge rate is above 25%, you will always at least partial parry.

    During Backstabs and Ripostes, you take 90% less damage.
    When blocking, all damage is reduced to whatever the single digit value was; unless you were not capable of blocking the blow.

    invasion mechanics:
    When human, I will be rolling an invisible die, if it rolls a 1, you will be invaded by an area specific invader, whom will wear pre-designated gear that i have selected based on the area. NPC invaders still exist.

    The white soapstone, and other multiplayer items:
    When the white soapstone is received, it will have a very different function based on the nature of this text game. The white soapstone is used to connect to a green "summons" symbol left by various NPC's. I've already picked out all 9 locations i intend to do this at. These green summons symbols will never expire, however they can only be attempted once; as failure results in the summons bearer dying, so they never send out another summons. These special battles will be difficult, but award the player with powerful spells or equipment. Entering a summons is not a blind trial run, you will receive a vague vision that indicates the basics of the battle, and it's reward.

    The red soapstone can be used to force a encounter with an invading NPC. Red Soapstone battles are usually against much better armed opponents then the Red Eye Orb, as the opponents you're battling do so intentionally, rather then just being invaded by a jerk that wants blood.

    The Red Eye Orb can be used an infinite amount of times in each area, however the first opponent you fight in any area is not randomized, and as such is liable to be stronger then anything my dice randomly throw together. Killing this first opponent of an area rewards you with additional prizes. Continued invasions in the area will face you against stock warriors that award 1 humanity for being slain.

    White Soapstones will show up in your world occasionally. By using the summons stone Solaire will give you, you can summon these warriors to assist in battle.

    There is 3 Red Soapstones in the world. You can view all the information about your opponents prior to summoning them. If slain the stones will not show back up. Consider them challenge fights.

    External Link to all spells included in this text game:

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OBzUGVL9yvTO-19AfMz7eQ43BzHfRbKYKle6uDYnyUY/edit
    Spell Prices are listed on all spells, but not all spells can be purchased.

    The Estus Flask:

    A +0 Estus Flask Heals 100 HP. Every + to the flask increases this value by 50 points. The Estus Flask can go to +10, which is 600 HP total. However, a firekeeper soul can also be used to receive the firekeepers blessing, which bestows you with a X2 multiplier to healing from flasks until your next death. This makes max healing per flask 1200.

    Enemy Status indicators:

    [UA] = Unaware. This enemy does not know of your current position, so is less likely to dodge, and very unlikely to attack.
    [HA] = Height Advantage. Being below your enemy is a certain way to permit them to thrash you in any conflict.
    [EHA] = Extreme Height Advantage. The enemy is so far above you that neither of you can safely engage in combat without ranged weapons.
    [OOS] = Out of Sight. Neither of you have direct line of sight, but know each other exist.
    [S] = Stunned. This effect shows up under certain circumstances, and represents any complete immobilization.
    [D] = Disabled. The mob can still do combat, but has been hindered greatly in combat

    Continue up into Undead Burg, sexily. Make mental note to do some manicuring.

    I'm assuming you're running this exactly as a dark souls adventure; could you, for instance, go outside this fixture? Could you pry open a gate, lower a rope, etc? Is it closed or open ended?

    You can pry open gates, lower ropes, you're not locked inside the constraints of the real gsme engine.

    Ok; so I'm continuing down the path, up the stairs, moving cautiously. Everything is apparently out to kill me around here. What kind of crazy place is this?

    I turn around head through the archway headin deeper into the aquadeuct. I approach the stair way to my right and ascend it carefully knowing what is in wait. I ready my bow and slowly step up the stairs until the closest undead is in sight. I carefully aim for his head and notch an arrow and let it fly.

    (Was that alright?)

    Very well, i will.

    You walk around the corner, and notch your arrow as you slowly creep around the corner, as soon as the enemies head is in sight, you let an arrow fly. It strikes with such velocity the head comes clean off.

    You have 416/616 HP
    You are in combat!
    You are equipped like so.

    You start sneaking up behind it, and suddenly it starts to turn around, you instinctively charge over there, and after a short scuffle it's down on the ground, brutally getting it's head lopped off.

    You have 416/616 HP
    You are in combat!
    You are equipped like so.
    You have in your inventory:

    Empty Slot
    1 firebombs

    [60 copper coin]
    You have the following spells:

    Force: 23 Casts
    Heal: 5 Casts

    L.Hollow Soldier 1: 100%
    L.Hollow Soldier 2[OOS]: 100%

    The warriors on the other side of the bridge have noticed you. You can hear one running out from the building, and the other warrior[1] throws a firebomb.

    Before going to the the other soldier, I find the firebomb soldier a bigger threat, so I attack him.

    You chuck a firebomb, but it just sails over the head of the enemy.
    The enemies firebomb is badly aimed and flies directly over your head.
    The soldier [2] approaches you, and with it's blade extended outwards, continues it's charge with great gusto.

    Homeward Bone! (just kidding silly)

    Really though, I'll bide for an attack and attempt a parry. (Parry question: Our Plank Shield is a "fast parry" shield, do you take into account the differing parry levels?)

    I do not. All shields can parry and bash, rather the weight of the shield works toward the counter of what can/cannot be parried. Havels Shield will have difficulty parrying due to it's weight, but block many more attacks, and the Dark Hand would have the opposite problem.

    You succeed at parrying! You take the riposte, and a firebomb hits the foe you are currently killing in the back. (8)

    Yeah, I parried successfully. Who's the baus? king

    With just me and the firebomber left, the fight is made easy. He is slow. I wait for him to wind up and throw another bomb, after he does I rush in and wail away at him 2-handed.

    Btw, that smiley was me trying to write ( 8 ). As you took damage and i was noting it.

    You fail to dodge the firebomb, taking 120 damage. You rush forward and ram your blade into the warrior, it falls backwards. You're unsure if you, or the fall, was it's cause of death.

    I took 8 damage. Why?

    Anyway the jerk firebomber is dead and I don't care how.

    I'm low on health. Obviously, I take a drink from my Estus.

    Embarrassed to admit, but I'm lost (not with regards to the game but with regards to the hero's actual geographical location in the DkS world silly).

    I believe we're in the Burg, but where exactly in the Burg are we? :oops:
