God of Mimicry

Mimic God. Concept should be simple enough from a gameplay perspective, if a bit hard to implement. Bit of a customization god.

Piety: "Meeting" creatures. Medium piety for seeing a new creature for the first time, small piety for seeing more creatures.

Passive:
  • [Start] - Analysis - Creatures with multiple possible spellsets (including liches) have their spellset revealed by announcement upon it coming into LoS, like Ashenzari with deadly weapons.)
  • *** - Camouflage - Your god copies the area around you, creating a large stealth bonus when not moving.
  • *** - Mimicked Auxiliary - Extra auxiliary attack matching the brand copied.
Active:
  • * - Copy - Free - Smite targeted, the next spell or ability used by the target is mimicked and becomes a new invocation. This invocation replaces copy.
  • ** - Copy - Free - You gain copy again and can copy a second enemy ability.
  • *** - Copy - Free - Third ability.
  • *** - Mimic Auxiliary - Free - Copy an opponent's melee brand to become a branded auxiliary attack.
  • **** - Copy - Free - Fourth Ability.
  • **** - Forget - Large Piety, Scroll of Amnesia - Remove a previously copied ability, gain ability to copy again.
  • ***** - Copy - Fifth ability.
  • ****** - Copy - Sixth ability.

Copy Notes:
  • Copied abilities use the monster's version of the spell; your "monster HD" for the spell is a function of level, Int and Invocations.
  • Replicated abilities have an MP, hunger and piety cost indexed to each individual ability. Player will know the piety and hunger costs after copying; with general terms for hunger and piety and exact numbers for MP.
  • Any monster's spell or ability can be copied, though powerful ones have high MP/Piety cost (and can only be witnessed on a few enemies).
  • Failure rate on repeating a mimicked ability scales with the MP cost of the ability.
I'm beginning to feel like a Cat God! Felid streaks: {FeVM^Sif Muna, FeWn^Dithmenos, FeAr^Pakellas}, {FeEE^Ashenzari, FeEn^Gozag, FeNe^Sif Muna, FeAE^Vehumet...(ongoing)}
