I'd like to see bows and crossbows in the game. I wanna design playable characters who can shoot people from far away. Also, can you make custom weapons? If so, how? And if not, I'd like that too! I wanna make a whip! :whip

How would they work? Why would they be cool?

What would a crossbow do?

How would a whip be different than a sword?

If you walk past someone with a crossbow or bow, they can shoot you and you lose some health but then they have to stop for a few turns to load it. It would work the same for the main character. And I wanted to do an RPG hold that followed a character who fought with a whip.

... Worst idea ever, Besides the really long sword which takes up to spaces.

The crossbow is crap. I can stand 5 spaces away and beat the crap out of it. Possebly in regula DROD but not RPG.

The long sword I have to support. It would become a good element in getting orbs in a way, Like there is one space pit in the reach of an orb and you must unlock a yellow or green agte to acsess it. Difenetly not blue. unless it was the end of the level. But I had an add on. Whem the tip of the blade hits the monster (It well fight back.) But You get 2x the damage of what you reagully would.

Actually crossbow'n'stuff would work fine if the ammo was finite/would cost greckles ;).

It seems a bit niche though... actually I could probably script a ranged weapon accessory or something like that. I'll probably get back to this thread later this week if nobody else does.
