fr: bring back Norris


If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it belongs here. Also, come here if you just need to get hammered.

fr: bring back Norris

If somebody can think of and test out a good, defining spellset using some spells not as prominent as invis / para / confuse / smiting, maybe they can bring him back

Bring back Norris as a shoals only unique, occasionally appearing in place of Ilsuiw. Keep his old stats, maybe nerf hd slightly if needed, give him rDrown. New spell set: primal wave, smiting, confuse, freezing cloud. Surfs through the water like a nymph. Doesn't come with a band.

A human that worships an ancient ocean god, he came to the shoals to check out the waves. He doesn't seem to appreciate finding you on his favorite beach.

He should present a somewhat different threat than Ilsuiw, who is really boring to fight/avoid fighting every single time you do shoals imo.

Also, give him back his surfboard you meanies.

That just won't do. Let's try this:

Yeah, that could work.

He should cast a spell that knocks you back and creates shallow water under your feet and summons water elementals and also there's three of him in every body of water
take it easy

Make him fast and give him boulder bettle roll + elephant trample + engulfing. Also make him ride those water elementals.

Re: fr: bring back Norris

Given Norris and his surf board boulder beetle rolling on water would be fucking amazing.

This needs to happen.

In any case Ilsuiw should not really appear every time in Shoals.

This, ancient Hawaiians had invented surfboards hundreds of years ago, so surfing isn't even anachronistic (whatever that's supposed to mean in the context of Crawl's timeless fantasy faux-middle ages aesthetic, anyway)
