Well, it's not that things like battle bore me. I like coming up with interesting monsters and attacks for them to use, but the minutiae of balancing doesn't interest me the way the details of other aspects do. I'll give balancing a shot, but if I don't think I can handle it I'll see if I can interest anyone on the forum in helping me out.

Personally I have created all my classes from scratch so I know all the power curves they have, the experience needed to level e.c.t.

I spreadsheeted this.

Then I have created a database of creatures (level 1-10) (11-20) e.c.t.

So the creatures scale in comparison to the players curves (taking into account when they get extra party members)

But the main thing for true balance is, battle test, battle test annnnd battle test to make sure everything from skills being used the right amount of times to how well you do with above / under average gear.

My new 49" monitor has been dispatched from the warehouse. Will it arrive tomorrow? The day after? I love that we can track packages now, even if it does only tell me when it's left that end and when it's arrived at the local centre. As long as it doesn't end up in Melbourne again, which has happened before ...
My friend's doing a surprise stream of my game Origin Hunt on Twitch here ! Feel free to stop by :yhappy:
Me, designing it a long time ago: Having an optional boss fight as a random chance to trigger when you fish in a certain spot with a certain type of bait is fun! Cool idea!
Me, trying to playtest everything again: oh god just let me see the boss, my bag is so full of fish!
both love and pain have no boundaries
