how about the "bone dragon form"?


Although the central place for design discussion is ##crawl-dev on freenode, some may find it helpful to discuss requests and suggestions here first.

how about the "bone dragon form"?

the "lich form" is good for live the pan and "undead area".
and "dragon form" has special damage, but harder than "lich form" that survival. though many HP.

so casting "dragon form" when "lich form", trance the "dragon form".

HP and attack is lower than "dragon form" but has "undead"

Re: how about the "bone dragon form"?

If that is added, would we need an ice spider for when you cast ice form followed by spider form?

Why stop at combining two forms? Why not an undead eight-bladed stone dragon?

I guess what I'm trying to say is that combining forms seems too complicated to ever get right, and the forms all have their own strengths and weaknesses for good reasons.

Making one "best form" would take away the decision about which form to use, which would make the game less interesting.

Re: how about the "bone dragon form"?

um. do you use spider and ice form at pan or hell ?
best form is not be? i think best form is "lich form" 0.91 version.
i clear game that use only "lich form"
not melt item, not magic penalty and + MR,NR...

i understand your mean. but if "bone dragon form" is be, not different now.
item is melt, dont use potion, and most important thing is high level of 3magic require(trance,nec,fire)
if learn and use "bone dragon spell", may be you clear game except this spell.

ps : undead eight-bladed stone dragon? hm. not bad :) about eight-head? instead eight-bladed.

I don't really like it when you're encouraged to stack buffs (and keep several going at a time). Stacking forms would be a similar problem...

So they are spells with drawbacks as well as strengths—sounds interesting!
