      If a healer is someone who restores HP, what do you call someone who restores MP?

        I would have assumed such a job would fall to the healer as well, or, more commonly fall to objects to restore. I question the need to essentially have two healers in your party, unless they can also offer some attack damage as well.

        @mlogan The game lets you pick you pick 2 party members, in addition to your main character, to come with you. So you can bring just a healer, or just a mana replenisher, or you can go for both. Or ignore both of them and go for the attacker & defender instead.

        Having thought about it some more, I think I'm going with Reloader. Since MP serves as a sort of ammunition, but for skills, it makes sense in a way... I think, lol.

      I was thinking... what if you had a character who heals the enemy just so they can hurt them more? To satisfy their own sadistic nature...

        Could be an interesting quirk that comes with using an OP character. Perhaps all characters could have negative quirks of some sort associated with their personality in the game. Imagine a character who refuses to get healed in battle because he thinks it's not manly enough and that pain is gain. :p

        For art I prefer doing original content, but when it comes to writing it's nice to have an existing universe to work with. It also saves a lot of time not having to fully describe every character that makes an appearance. But maybe once I become more experienced with my writing I might move on to more original stuff.

        My advice once you get to that point of "completion" any little things you want to add have people beta test it even if it's just that small portion and see what they say. Just because you 'fixed' something to your taste it might not be to other people's taste. Of course at that point you're at that point of you can't please everyone but feedback is good regardless.

        I've already watched some people play though those parts of the game before I edited bits about it again, both friends and people I don't know, and everyone so far seems to like it, so it can't be that terrible.

      It's been less than 24 hours since my bathroom was invaded by a monster spider on which I got an unconfirmed kill. Scouted the whole room several times today, no signs of life found. Time for a shower, if I don't report back within 30-60 minutes I won't have made it out alive. Wish me luck.

      There's a ****ing huge ass spider in my bathroom. Tried to smash it, but missed and it ran away superfast. Pondering if I should set my house on fire or to nuke it from orbit, just to be sure.

        It was dark brown or grey. I've either managed to suck it up with the vacuum cleaner or it managed to somehow escape. It ran just under my shower curtains as I sweeped the vacuum cleaner over it. Spent like 15 minutes poking and checking the curtains, but nothing there. Hope it's gone now, lol. :(

    Primarily Uses:
    RMMV
    My greatest joy and passion in gamemaking is developing a battle system that is different from the norm. I will not accept anything that uses default RPG mechanics, such as massive MP pools, reliance on consumables and one-trick-pony classes.

    My Holy Bible on combat:

    CHOICE
    First, I believe that choice is the single most important thing when it comes to making a good and engaging combat system. When there are no meaningful choices to be made, when there is always a single best answer to any given scenario, the system has failed.

    RESOURCE MANAGEMENT
    Second, low total MP and MP management through skill usage and regeneration is something I do not go without. Having to manage characters' MP in every encounter is far more engaging than having a massive MP pool that can be easily replenished through consumable usage.

    TRANSPARENCY
    Third, transparency is the key to making a fair but difficult game. Giving the players the information and tools they need to overcome challenges and making them easily accessible is an obligation for me as game creator, not an option. If difficult encounters come down to simple trial-and-error or guessing games, then that game has failed.
