New uniques: Halfling sisters

3 sisters of halfling. (Name them whatever you want)

1. Basically an upgrade of Dowan&Duvessa.
2. Their backgrounds are fighter, conjurer, assassin.
3. Appear in Depths.


4. Warrior: Guaranteed equip of demon blade, shield of reflection, random dragon armour
Spells: Pain bond, Might, Heal self, Heal other

4. Mage: Guaranteed equip of staff of conjuration
Spells: Haste sisters(haste them simultaneously), Airstrike, Lightning bolt, Repel missiles

4. Rogue: Guaranteed equip of distortion quick blade and vorpal greatsling.
Spells: Yara's violent unraveling, Paralyze, Blink, Invisibility

5. All of them have recall ability so that one can recall others when needed.

6. When one of them dies, rest two's HD raises by 4.

6. When two of them dies, rest one is permanently buffed:
Warrior buffed with permanent berserk.
Mage buffed with permanent brilliance, and its spell set change to conjure ball lightning, tornado, chain lightning, deflect missile.
Rogue buffed with permanent haste+invisibility.



How do you think about this? Does this sound fun?

If you name them after the Sand Snukes from Game of Thrones, I'm in.

Re: New uniques: Halfling sisters

Only if they say one of their horribly stupid lines, then fight you in a terribly choreographed way, and let you get sneak attack bonuses on every attack because they insist on spinning around like idiots and exposing their backs....

Aside from that, it could be interesting, although they sound pretty tough if they always fight you together. Oh well, hallways exist.

Re: New uniques: Halfling sisters

Looks good to me, except the Depths part. I consider Depths to be the hardest part of a standard 3-rune game because of monster density. We don't need MORE enemies there. Maybe make them appear in Zot/Crypt/Vaults.

Warrior buffed with permanent haste, might, agi and invoke bothers in arms every 3 turns
Mage buffed with permanent haste, brill, cast glac every 3 turns.
Rogue buffed with permanent haste, might, agi, paralyze with 127 power, spits an XL-checking needle of paralyis every 3 turns.

Re: New uniques: Halfling sisters

Paralyse + a distortion quickblade sounds awful.
Invis also makes it even more awful except that most players have Sinv by that point.

Other than that the rogue's permanent buff should probably be stronger. Permanent invisibility doesn't mean much when he already has an invis spell.

New uniques: Smornstein and Ough.

Smornstein is a spriggan with a good lightning polearm, haste, and chain lightning, Ough is a Ogre with GDA and a giant club. When Smornstein dies Ough gets his spells, and when Ough dies Smornstein gets his armour and size.

e: Also, they are always guarding an Amazing Chest (armour).

Only if the halflings at low health become a totem pole monster and gain 3 times as much HD.

Re: New uniques: Halfling sisters

Instead of sisters they should be lesbians. Not sexualized or stereotyped or anything, just unambiguously lesbians.

Like... in a relationship together, or just three lesbians who are friends with each other? Or maybe it's some kind of love triangle, so after you kill one the other two get to be together without the awkward problems posed by the previous third wheel?

Better yet, one could be identified as the third wheel. If you kill one of the others, the other two go berserk or whatever. If you kill the third wheel, the other two turn neutral and leave the dungeon (And then you kill them for food, you monster!) Then you could have your lesbian uniques who also have a unique gimmick! Of course... a trio of uniques is already a fairly unique gimmick...
