New Combat Module Available

Postby Denk » Thu May 10, 2018 2:54 pm

I have just released the Eamon Combat Module ( http://www.adrift.co/game/1507 ), which provides ADRIFT users with a simplified version of the Eamon combat system.

Along with the module, I have released a remake of "Beginner's Cave" ( http://www.adrift.co/game/1509 ) to demonstrate the capabilities of the Eamon Combat Module.

FEATURES:
Can handle multiple enemies and friends
Easy setup of character stats(Agility, hardiness etc)
Easy setup of weapon stats(Dice, sides, odds etc)
Easy setup of armor stats (damage absorption, penalty etc)
Includes user manual in pdf-format.

For those curious about the Eamon system, you can read more about it here:
https://eamon-remastered.com/manual

Feedback, questions etc. are very welcome.

You might also want to make one based on the original Adrift version 4 combat system, though I don't know if the version 4 data would be easily imported.

I based the combat module on Eamon, since I like Eamon games and ADRIFT 5 was missing a combat module. I have never used ADRIFT 4 but I read that the combat system of ADRIFT 4 wasn't very good. But perhaps others disagree? If so, I could look into it, to see if a similar system could be implemented in ADRIFT 5. Are there any ADRIFT 4 games, which utilize the ADRIFT 4 combat system, so that I could check it out?

The v4 combat system was pretty awful. You’re better off not bothering with it at all.

The game Shadowpeak had combat in it. The main reason I suggested support for the version 4 combat engine though is so people would be able to recreate there old adrift 4 games (if they had combat).

I was curious so I took a look at Shadowpeak (I have added a review). The combat I tried was extremely easy so I never really got a feel of the combat system. I believe that there isn't much need for a specific ADRIFT 4 combat system in ADRIFT 5, so I am not going to do any more about it.
