KRO Campaign idea: Shower of Red

by Ruby_Hex » Thu May 12, 2016 11:52 pm

Okay, so I decided to split up some of the topics from my original "Idea Room." (Which will now be exclusively dedicated to my heroes.) Here, we have my first campaign idea: Shower of Red!

:hero: Kingdom Rush Origins Campaign Idea: Shower Of Red :hero:

Plot: “General! It is a dire time indeed! Our old ally, the gnome king is dead and his once peaceful land has been taken over by the infamous warlock, Aldanc, the gnomish warlord. He has amassed a formidable army out of the gnome-kings militia and the savage redcap hordes, forcing a fungal infection upon the land and not only that, but something more than just munchshrooms are being devised in those pits... We must stop Aldanc's warpath at all costs! What's more, is that Aldanc's forces have reached the verdant edge, where the gnome's source of playfulness and magical ability, the great tree Maibranch, is at stake! To battle!!”

Notes: The three levels take place along the verdant edge just in case you were wondering where the levels were located. Although most of the enemies aren't that hardy, they are very numerous (even the stronger ones) and they have strength in numbers.

Returning enemies: Redcap, Gloomy, Boomshroom, Munchshroom, Fungus Breeder, Sword Spider, Webspitter Spider, Spider Brood, Bandersnatch.

Armor: Low
Magic resistance: Low
Speed: Slow
Lives taken: Twenty
Damage: 150-200
Special abilities: Aldanc has a natural healing affect much like a troll, can grow roots around towers which causes them to become useless, if you don't break the roots quickly by clicking/tapping on them then they will destroy the tower, note that Aldanc does this quite frequently so watch out! Luckily, he must stop for a few moments once he attacks a tower.
Appearance: Aldanc starts off as a tall Gnome with a long gray beard, blue cloak with a blue hood and a long staff made out of an oaken branch, however, just before the fight begins, he fuses with Maibranch and becomes a large, white tree-ent with pale green leaves, multiple legs and long arms that can slash at enemies. He is also slightly smaller than Greenmuck and has much, much more human features from the waist up, such as an actual round head with branch-antlers and softer features.
Death animation: Aldanc glows a pale green and turns back into Maibranch, rooting himself to his spot of death.
Description: An infamous and sufficiently insane gnome warlord, his new form is the perfected result of natural magic meshed with corruptive energy,

So, there's a problem here.
That being the lack of levels. We don't know what comes where, or at least on this post.

The ideas are good though.
KRA is now complete.
