Need better names for few abilities
« on: June 11, 2011, 04:46:43 am »
Hi!

The spells are for the third esper, Nyrxz.


Triple Lightning

Casts a powerful thunder from the sky that damages and stuns the target for 2 seconds. The lightning also spreads to 2 nearby enemies with half effect.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thunder Bolt

Casts forth a lightning ball that damages enemies it touches. When the ball has reached it's destination it bounces back towards Nyrxz.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Electry Shield

Creates a lightning shield around Nyrxz that increases his armor by 10. Every attack to Nyrxz will decrease armor's bonus by 1.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lightning Shield
Every attack by Nyrxz gives one lightning ball that rotates around Nyrxz. When the eleventh ball is activated a lightning blast will occur dealing damage to enemies around and stunning them for 2 seconds.

Triple Lighting -> Lighting Thunder God
Thunder Bolt -> Maeltroms
I think Meltroms is for water spells but i saw it in many games and used as powerful thunder spells. The others 2, idk :D

Maelstrom doesn't seem to fit, though...
Maybe Triple Lightning -> High Voltage
Lightning Shield -> Electron Charge
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

I didnt read the description of the spells though. Maybe Aero wants some super awesome names, so i just put all the names i can think here and he can choose what he wants for whichever spells:
Lighting Thunder God, Maeltroms, Judgement Bolt, Rolling Thunder, Lighting Vortex...
For those "Lighting Shield" things, i cant really think of any name, maybe those are best names available...

Of course the name must somehow be connected to the spell idea.

"Lighting Thunder God" don't like that
"Maeltroms" naah
"High Voltage" well this is better but it doesn't actually refer to anything
"Electron Charge" this is okay
"Judgement Bolt" sounds cool
...

HEY! Let's go with theme "judgement", "justice" and "order" from this moment on.

Judgement Bolt
Bolt of Justice
Order

I don't see a reason how could the 'judgement, justice and order' theme would work with Lightning-based abilities.

So what should we do now?
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

I'm not sure. Hmm.

Well that theme idea came when I was a little but drunk so let's forget that and continue with our lightning theme!  ;D

Triple Lightning => Judgement Bolt
Thunder Bolt => ???
Electry Shield => ???
Lightning Shield => ???

Electry Shield -> Warp Armour
Triple Lightning -> Electrical Storm
Lightning Shield -> Nova Charge
What do you think Aero?

Triple Lightning => ???
Thunder Bolt => Judgement Bolt
Electry Shield => Warm Armor(not sure about this one yet)
Lightning Shield => Nova Charge

Still need a good name for Triple Lightning and I'm not sure about Electry Shield.

I meant Warp, not Warm Armour!

What about 'Tempest'? 'Starburst'?
Or simply 'Chain Lightning'...

Yeah just a typo.

Can't be Tempest because it's a simple lightning spell. And starburst... Noo.

Also chain lightning is used too much. Something better...
