The druid also has a simple twisted wooden staff in his left hand that is used to conduct his magic. When he attacks, he magically conjures up an explosive pumpkin which then gets tossed at nearby enemies.

It has no armor or magic resistance and gets re-summoned every 10 seconds. It explodes in a burst of flame upon death, dealing damage equivalent to the Golems current health in an AoE magic damage. The pumpkin Golem has thin limbs that are made from green vines. His stomach and chest are each made from an individual pumpkin and in his right hand is a scythe, which is what he uses to attack. His head looks like a pumpkin but it is far more sinister looking than the cheerful head of the pumpkin druid. The pumpkin Golem has a pair of horns that each look like a pumpkin stem.

Cost 200 / 150 / 150

Tower Name Soul-render Totem
Description The totem looks like a tall, jet black rectangle with a large black skull sitting at it's top. The totem sits amid a pool of glowing pale green slime made from the souls of it's foes. Ancient runes cover the totem. The totem doesn't attack like a normal tower. Instead, it summons a "Soul Monger" once it collects 3 souls from enemies that die near it. Once the maximum number of Soul Mongers have been summoned (3), the tower will heal the Soul Monger with the lowest HP by 150 when it collects three souls, rather than summon another Soul Monger. When the tower collects a soul, the soul flies out of the enemy, leaving a pile of dust behind, and gets absorbed into the towers skull which begins to float in midair, open its mouth and have it's eyes glow green, as well as the rest of the skull and the runes on the totem. A Soul Monger is the size of Oni from KR. They have entirely green bodies with thick limbs and black skull-like heads with tusks. They also have a tail, as well as a black rib cage within their green chest. Soul mongers have no armor, no magic resistance, 500 HP each and deal 80 - 100 magic damage on each hit.

ARCHER
Tower Name Monster Hunter
Description The tower looks like a sturdy, stone fortress or survival bunker with a thick wood door, no windows and a wide base. The top of the tower is open and has four large windows with no glass in them. The towers roof is faded red, like the colour of a brick. At the top of the roof is the skull of some monster, and at the base of the structure are several wooden stakes sticking out of the ground that are topped by decaying heads. Gruesome, isn't it? Anyhoo, a man looks out of the window at the top of the tower. The man has a sniper and a black leather jacket. He also has a brown cowboy hat with a black band wrapping around it and faded blonde hair. Lastly, he has a long, grey goatee and a cigar in his mouth. The way he rests his sniper on the windowsill is rather casual.

Quote *irritated nose exhale*, stop with that mushy stuf.


Archer tower
Tower Name Graveyard Grounds
Description This tower isn't actually a tower, but rather a small hill. It's a really sad and creepy looking hill with graves and bones everywhere. There's a square fence around the entire graveyard. On the top of the hill stands an old gravekeeper with a brown jacket and a rucksack full of bones. The gravekeeper tosses the bones of the deceased at enemies.

Skeletal pal (300/150/150) (passive)
The gravekeeper calls 3/4/5 friends. These skeletal pals can be moved around freely and individually within the tower's range. When a skeleton dies, it shatters and leaves 4 bones on the ground. These can be picked up and thrown by other nearby skeletons, dealing 6-10/10-14/14-18 damage. After a 10 second respawn time, a new skeleton spawns in the place where the last one died.

Mage tower
Tower Name Science Lab

About The mad scientist is called Willy. He works hard to fulfill his long-life dream of creating an artificially-created man.
Cost 325

Fire Rate continuous
Damage 25 damage per second
Range average

Skills
passive: When the laser kills an enemy, the enemy disintegrates and it's energy (it's total health value) gets absorbed by the laser. When the tower has absorbed a value of 1500 worth of energy, the scientist starts to laugh and a large zombie-like man opens his eyes inside the lab. The Frankenstein (appropriately called Frank) can be controlled with a rally point. He has the following stats:

health: 500
regen: varies
damage: 20-50 area damage
armor: low
speed slow
respawn: varies

When Frank gets below 150 health, the ray will briefly target him and heal him for 1/3 of the energy value that has been gathered by the ray up until that point.

More. Lasers. (400/400) (passive)
attaches one/one more extra laser to the main laser canon. Each mini-laser does 10 dps.

Overdrive (250/150/150) (15s)
The tower generates a shockwave that deals 50/70/90 magic damage in the entire range of the tower. All the damage done gets absorbed by the laser. The added total is then divided by three and added as a health barrier for Frank. The barrier starts to decay after 5 seconds, decreasing by 1/10 every second.

Quote He is alive. ALIVE!


Barrack tower
Tower Name Reaper abbatoire
Description A sort of torture chamber. Screams can be heard from inside the cabin. The torturers are grim reapers of the universal kind. They wear a black cape and use scythes as weapons.
About When you see a reaper, you know the end is nigh. Better prepare yourself mentally.
Cost 230

Unit HP 230
Unit Armour none
Unit Damage 20-34 (average attack speed)
Unit Respawn 10s

Skills
passive: very small chance of instantly killing an enemy with every attack.

Reaper Roundabout (300/100/100) (30s/26s/22s)
*can only be used when all three reapers are alive. The reapers hold their scythes toward each other, and then spin around relentlessly. This kills all enemies in a small area instantly.

Empower (200/75/75) (12s)
A reaper steals 30/40/50% of an enemies' attack damage to use for his own for 6 seconds. The enemy will get his power back if the reaper dies during those 6 seconds.

Dark ritual (150) (20s)
When all three reapers are idle, the one that has been alive the longest up until that point kills one of the other reapers and gains 50% of it's stats. The health barrier and damage boost stay until the reaper dies. When the health barrier depletes, it cannot be regenerated. So the reaper can only regenerate until 230 health, even if he had more health before that.

Quote I prefer my coffee black, like my soul.


Hero
Name Cereza
Title the witch
Appearance Cereza is young and a total diva. She wears a dark blue dress with purple sleeves. It has a cut near her legs. Her witch hat is dark blue as well. Cereza's hair is dark, and her eyes blue. She usually sits on her flying broom, both legs on one side. Her appearance is very important to her.

HP 400
Melee none
Ranged 40-75 magic damage
Magic see above

Armor none
Speed fast
Respawn 20s

Skills
passive: flying

glitter and glamour (3/3/3) (20s)
Cereza sprinkles glitterpowder on the ground below her for 4 seconds. She is fully mobile during this. Exposure to glitter slows enemies by 10 10%/20%/30% for 5 seconds. Every 0.5 seconds after that, the enemy slows down by another 10%/20%/30%. This adds up cumulatively, thus it's possible to completely immobilize enemies for a while.

Cate army (3/2/1)
Cereza calls her pet, a black cat. It can block and damage enemies on the ground. It moves along with Ceraza. It has the following stats:

health: 150/200/250
damage: 4-10/8-14/12-18
armor: none
respawn: 15s
passive: Cereza's attacks and abilities do 30% bonus damage when attack the same enemy as her pet.

Bat Tactics (2/2/2) (10s)
Cereza raises her hand and spawns five bats around her. The five bats seek a target and fly through it with great speed, dealing 25/35/45 damage each. Deals more damage the slower the target. (very fast enemies are set at a value of 100, non-moving ones at a value of 0. Slow is 25, average 50 and fast is 75. The damage multiplier is calculated by the formula: damage muliplier = 100 - speed value. so this attack does 100% more damage to non-moving enemies.) The cat's passive applies.

comfy broom (3/1/1) (passive)
allows Cereza to attack enemies while on the move, at a reduced attack speed. attacks fired while moving slow enemies by 30% for 1/2/3 seconds.

Hero skill: brewing stew (4/4/4) (60s)
Summons a brewing pot in the selected area. The 3/5/7/9 nearest enemies are stuffed into the pot and stay there for 4 seconds, dealing 10/15/20/25 damage per second. After that, the pot spews out the potion that has been brewed from the enemies, and rains it down over a large area around itself. This potion gives soldiers 50% bonus damage and health regeneration for 2/3/4/5 seconds.

Entry One is by far the superior one here. Sorry, other entrants. ;)

I would have entered this contest if I had a little more time. I only had to type out the Artillery Tower and the Hero. Oh, well. I guess I'll post my entry in another thread today or tomorrow. :)

It is the most balanced, it has the best formatting (Despite what you may say, this is a factor to consider. It makes things more appealing if they are well formatted.), and is the most interesting to me personally.

Since the timer I put on the poll has come about and locked it, I'm going to draw this voting period to a close and announce the winners now (also since I'm going out tonight to avoid ToT'ers).

In first place, Entry One is RaZoR LeAf
In second place, Entry Three is Minuet
In joint third place, Ruby_Hex and Magnus0



Here's some feedback on all the entries.

First off, it's upsetting that people have voted but not replied. Your opinions matter, even if you didn't enter.

Entry One is my entry, so thanks for all your votes, but I'd still like to hear feedback and critiques other than I have nice formatting. I have it because I quote the post and maintain the bold and italic tags rather than highlighting and copying.

Entry Two, aside from formatting issues, why does every tower have a range point unit? Barracks fine, maybe one somewhere else but you have it for your Druid, Mage and Archer. It's excessive.

Your magic tower is very complicated too. Even after you buy it, you have to wait for it to be ready, then buy upgrades in order for it to be more than a glorified Reinforcement.

Blood Feast has too many stats to worry about, and I can't picture time, damage, HP, instakill, alternate damage and regent all fitting into the explanation box in the Hero Room. I like Bat Swarm. I'm sure it's badly balanced, but I'm not BBB so I could've say for certain, and he's too busy chatting on Discord to comment.

Entry Three is the one I voted for. It has nice formatting for the skills (which I may steal for future contests) but that's not what got my vote.

I had so much stress trying to come up with an archery tower, and I'm not that fond of what I came up with anyway. I love the spiders concept, I can picture it as a special tower in a dark forest. I like the idea that the mage's Treant could be made by the tower attacking your own units, making placement a concern.

The fact that your artillery isn't a dwarf or a Druid is nice, even if it is a bit odd. Zombie Clowns, the less said of those the better *shudder*. The hero is similar to my original idea of an old lady handing out candy, but I couldn't think of enough skills, so I was happy to see a Trick or Treater.

Entry Four, just like two has units on two more towers and the hero. It's an excess of units for one set of designs. I'm also not a fan of how the magic tower works, does Frank (nice job copying the Dark Forge unit there) do magic or physical AoE?

I didn't want to post a review of all the entries before the end cause I was entered and skipping myself would give it away. :?

I won't be talking about the heroes cause frankly I'm just not too interested in heroes in general. :(
Just assume that I like them all because I do. :D

Aaaanyways, Entry One was definitely the best in my opinion, not for balance or formatting (even though those were great) but just because it had a good feel to it in the concept of each tower.
The mages I felt were slightly uninspired (gahd damn the passive damage stacking >>>>>>.<<<<<<), but still a solid tower, Perish Song made it stand out a lot, as you still have to pay attention to the tower and the placement of the banshee instead of just plopping it down like you would with an Archmage.
The concept of the archer tower is really cool, but it does seem just a bit strong (maybe cause I tend to make all my towers really weak to begin with idk), in the way of dealing hybrid damage with base damage that is already higher than any other tower except the Golden Longbows, maybe I'm missing something.
The druids are by far my favourite, the whole concept is just so ridiculous when Druids thus far are solely portrayed as being completely serious, and having the elders of a whole faction using a baseball bat and bobbing for apples is pretty funny. Bobbing as an ability is a fun idea and would be cool to see in action the more I think about it. Cursed Apple does seem a little bit weak though.
I like how the Undertaker's Yard's abilities flow together and work with the concept of death, having bonuses for death both to them and around them is the most fitting thing you can get for zombies. ^.^ Although the % chance to revive reminds me of Lilith and that triggers me. :lol:

On to Entry Two.
I like the visuals of the Druid tower you made, otherwise it's pretty standard, still good, just standard. How does the Golem's death explosion work? You wrote that it deals damage equal to its current health but upon death it wouldn't have any health... did you mean maximum health? Or does it use it on its own? Pumpkin Patch also reminds me of the Forest Keepers and Bravebark, but it still fits on this tower so I like it. I like how you can extend the duration by killing enemies, further increasing the tower's effectiveness on clusters of weak enemies, such as most Artillery and Druids are great at.
The mage tower is very weird, I have to say. Swapping its passive effect with Soul Charge would probably be much more beneficial to it. Try not to make your towers too dependent on upgrades. As it is, almost every level 4 tower in KR can hold their own without upgrades, and it's not even a mage tower without Soul Charge, more of a glorified barracks. Aura of Anti-Magic is too strong as well, if that existed in a game it would render all physical damage completely worthless as you could just pop a few of these out with the other level 4 mage tower, no barracks even as it is a barracks, and there would be no enemy, unless immune to magic, that would survive that.
The Monster Hunter tower in the concept is similar to what my archer tower idea was at first, but that isn't relevant to the review :?. It seems overpowered honestly, I do really like the abilities you made but that's nearly solely a numbers issue, so I can ignore that. ;) Other than that it's a pretty good tower, I like the old, battle-weary veteran-style, "get off my lawn" guy that shoots. :lol:
Ohhh my god you did a Barracks where the tower does something I love that so much. This is probably your best tower, I like how all the abilities revolve around the central concept of poisoning.

Eeeentry Three
Wow obviously the best I can do no wrong. ;)

Aaaand last but not least, Entry Fooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooouuuuuuuuuuuur
The artillery is completely ridiculous and I love it. Other than the theme it's fairly standard, but pretty well balanced.
The base damage on the Ranged tower is a bit low, Arcane Archers deal around 20-40 (more than that I'm sure), and this only deals 12-20. :? Which does set up a dependency on the skills. Headshot feels like a weaker version of Sniper Shot which already isn't that good, maybe the slow has more effect than I'm seeing. But usually slows are better as AoE I find.
Uhh, the Science Lab is kind of a rip-off of the Dark Forge... and Overdrive is basically the ability with a similar name (I forgot what it was god damnit I was playing KR an hour ago >.<) that the Tesla has. The passive is a bit complicated, you'll need visual indicators on the tower itself to show what general charge level its at. Otherwise I do like the continuous damage effect of the main weapon.
I don't like the abilities of the Reapers too much. I like the actual tower itself (muahaha torture chambers, eeeexcellent), but Reaper Roundabout sounds like it would be ridiculously weak or ridiculously powerful and have no mid point. Empower is ok, and Dark Ritual just bothers me for the same reason I prefer Bladesingers over Forest Keepers, I like having all three of my soldiers >.<, the quote is hilarious though, I love that.

Ok done with this text wall woohoo.

By "current health" I meant the Golems current maximum health. :mrgreen:
Thanks for the feedback, by the way.
