CONTEST: Shop

My last campaign went off without a hitch, but even I the great and powerful Vez'nan must give some credit to my weapon inventor Tramin. That little goblin is mad as a box of frogs, but I love the way his tiny little brain works. That said, an invention is only as good as its inventor, and if something were to happen to him, I'd be stuck without an arsenal of toys to play with. That's why I'm sending out an open invitation to all the crazy inventors in the world. I want new toys! Bigger, better, BADDER! Find me a genius, General!

Vez'nan is putting out the call for a genius inventor. The heroes of Linirea had the gnomes, but even they were limited in what they could make. Goblins have a lot more enthusiasm for invention and came up with a lot more designs. You will present an array of inventions to the Dark Lord. Each item should have an ability that either aids your own forces or hinders the enemy forces. You can design any kind of weapon with any ability, provided it is not overly complex. Of all your designs, you must include one ultimate item, costing 999 gems that damages everything. The ultimate item's design is still up to you.

You are also to design your inventor. Unlike Tramin; you are not required to create a full hero, but just the Shop owner and their background.

Requirements:
  • Create 9 unique shop items
  • Create an ultimate item worth 999 gems
  • Create a Shop owner and their backstory

Item
Name The item name
Appearance How it looks

Description The in game description
Cost The gems required to purchase

Details An explanation of how the item works, damage, cool-down, range, etc.


Shop Keeper

Name The Shop Keeper's name
Appearance How they look

History How they came to be an inventor, and their greatest invention

Code: Select all
[b]Name[/b]
[b]Appearance[/b]

[b]Description[/b]
[b]Cost[/b]

[b]Details[/b]

---

[b]Name[/b]
[b]Appearance[/b]

Instead of an inventor as the character, can we design a dealer/merchant kind of guy?

Also, can we make more than 9 items?

By "inventor" I think he just means whoever is giving the items, so I'm pretty sure it could be anything, not just a literal inventor. He was just trying to be creative with the contest intro.

I can tell you the answer to that is going to be "no." ;)

Ok, I’ll extend it until Wednesday, 10 days.

The inventor and the dealer should be the same person. The inventor of the weapons is selling their wares.

No. There are 9 items and an ultimate in KRV, so there are the same here. Or I could make it like the old Gnome Shop and limit you to five items?

It'll be a miracle if I can get this done in 10 days, since I'm not going to be home for some time. :?

My suggestion: write your ideas on paper and transfer them to computer later.

No. These contests are unofficial. The mods are unaffiliated with IH. They just decided to help out with the forums as volunteers when asked. :)

Does it have to be in order from the most costly to least?

These contests are completely unofficial and in no way connected to Ironhide Games. There is no chance in hell anything featured in them will be made into actual game content.

Literally none, because the devs have said they won't take ideas from us.

I dunno why but it's probably legal reasons.

Ahh... Well... No one can argue against that then. Except, isn't this limiting Ironhide's selection? (No, I'm not saying programmers from Ironhide would think along the same lines as us people, but just asking)
