Since there are so many entries, I think it would be best to have them all in one thread and to vote for the complete entry instead of separately as was previously planned. This is the most contest entries we've had for a long time (EIGHT!!).

As we can now have a poll to make voting easier, without further ado, here are the entries!

ENTRY ONE wrote:Name: Corpse Reanimator
Combination Of: Necromancer + Zombie
Appearance: A large, terrifying machine with six spiked wheels. It has a nozzle on the front, with which it pumps artificially made corrupted souls into dead bodies with the purpose of reanimating them.

Health: 2800
Damage: 35-60 (Deals damage per second as it rolls over units.)
Armor Rating: High (75%)
Magic Resistance: None
Speed: Slow (Zombie speed)
Lives Taken: 4
Bounty: 100

Abilities:
*Unblockable: However, it is slowed by 50% when rolling over units.
*Reanimates Corpses: Wherever it finds a corpse, it stops, and uses the nozzle on the front of it to pump a corrupted soul into the unit, reanimating them as a Zombie. If it corrupts a barrack unit's corpse, then that unit does not respawn until its zombified counterpart is slain. Takes about 1.5 seconds to perform the corruption process.

Lore:
A secretive branch of the Necromancers, the Necromantic Neo-scientists, have put together a horrible contraption capable of corrupting corpses with artificially manufactured souls!

*Red Tide (20s CD): Calls an enormous crimson wave over a large section of the path in front of him. It washes over the path for 5 seconds. Any units caught within are instantly killed, while heroes take 100 DPS while in it. Enemies in it are sped up by 50%. Towers that it washes over are covered seaweed and rubble, which requires 75 G to remove. Any arbitrary tower can only be disabled by any given wave one time. Only used if one or more of the three following requirements are met: If 6 or more units are in range to be instakilled; if 8 or more enemies are able to be sped up by the wave; or if 3 or more towers are in proximity to be disabled.

Now sharing a consciousness, both entities are united in their hatred of men.

KRF:

Combination Of: Saurian Blazefang and Blacksurge
Appearance: A Blacksurge with its left arm replaced by the cannon and mechanics of the Blazefang, with sparks flying from the arm and blue blood dripping down from the unholy combination.

The Saurian fires its weapon once into the shoulder of the Blacksurge, and again at its shell before it is dragged into the Blacksurge, hissing and writing as it is taken into the shell...

KRO:
Name: Doomie
Combination Of: Gloomy and Scourger
Appearance: The body of a Gloomy, with skin a blotched blue and the spikes on a Scourger, the long spindly legs of a Webspitter and spiked, vicious wings with a wingspan longer than the body of a Gloomy, flapping at irregular intervals.

However, having no foes to silence, she took out her wrath on a Gloomy, one of the curious creatures she so despised. Such a creature was so malleable, she found new life in this confined form, and multiplies her rage to bring despair to any she can.

All:
Name: Apophis
Combination Of: Necromancer, Saurian Brute and Ogre Magi
Appearance: A huge bipedal serpent wearing a long black shawl of torn fabric and armour cobbled from killed Myrmidons, dark knights and Demon Legions.

Can jam both of its hands into a tower, destroying it at the cost of 2000 health (60 second cooldown, cannot be executed under 2000 HP) Powerful Regeneration. Immune to insta-kill.

Lore: This Saurian was no normal Brute, possessing stronger magicks than most of the High Savants while in its egg. They decided that this was fate, but it was not - the Man in the Purple cape had been to Hell and back and was content with biding his time one again. The Saurian magic was curious, and merged well with many of the other powers he had coagulated on his travels. Whatever hatched from the egg would be the assimilation of everything that he had learned, and it would rend his enemies asunder on his behalf.


ENTRY SEVEN wrote:The Four Riders
Perhaps as old as the gods themselves, the Four Riders are not truly of anything in this world. None fully know the origin of these beings, nor their intentions, but subsequent studies prove clear that they are concepts tied to our very being--thundering thoughts that remain ever-present within the fears of all the living--they will exist so long as the living exist, and they will end once the living end. Further research also shows that they are not fully physical, and exist primarily in the conceptual world. It appears that any individual who brings an excess of any of the four concepts tied to the Riders summons atleast one of them, as if building a bridge for one of them to walk through. Rest assured that this summoning is temporary, that although physical means of termination do not work for their much too powerful corporeal form, their physical bodies themselves are still quite vulnerable. This brings us to two specific pieces of information: first, that none of their physical manifestations may ever sustain their power, and second, that no physical defeat may ever remove their existence.

Knowing all of this, one can derive one, specific, daunting conclusion: it matters not if we defeat the Riders, for in the end, we all will fall before them.

Pestilence
Name: Pestilence
Combination Of: Spectral Knight and Necromancer
Appearance: A floating, hooded yet crowned figure with no feet and a glowing green aura behind him, a torch in one hand and a sword in the other. The entire bottom part of his body is completely ethereal, the upper half is a mix of armor and mage robes.

Health: 780/900/1020
Damage: 36-72 magic
Armour Rating: None
Magic Resistance: High (75%)
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 3
Bounty: 80

Abilities:
Summon Afflicted: Pestilence raises his torch, summoning four Afflicted with 140/180/220 health each, 13-21 damage, and no armor. Afflicted are sickly corpses with mauled grey skin.
Virulence: All soldiers, enemies and Heroes near Pestilence gradually lose 15 health per second and receive +20 damage from all attacks. All combatants affected by Virulence have a grey aura below them. If a humanoid combatant dies while affected by Virulence, they turn into an Afflicted.
Transmission: Pestilence regains 50 health whenever an Afflicted dies near it.

Lore: Upon further reflection, one asks: was it truly his fault, or his friend's? Who is to blame, the one who embraced the sickness that dearly corrupted him, or the one who stood by and watched as it took over? All it takes, after all, is one fire, one dark flicker in a man's heart, for a kingdom to burn.

Famine
Name: Famine
Combination Of: Immortal and Sand Wraith
Appearance: Standing only a little taller than an Immortal, Famine wield a machete in one hand and a staff in the other, his body with a minimal amount of armor. Unlike War and Pestilence, Famine has no crown, but he has both a mask and a hood, the mask being made of long bandages, like a Sand Wraith. Aside from this, he also has two horns rising from his head.

Health: 720/840/960
Damage: 34-56 true
Armour Rating: None
Magic Resistance: High
Speed: Very Slow
Lives Taken: 3
Bounty: 80

Abilities:
Incurable: Projects an aura the range of a Shaman's. The aura redirects all magic attacks to Famine--includes both those from mage towers and magic enemies. Affects everyone in range--soldiers, Heroes, and enemies.
Vulture: Upon death, resurrects into an Afflictor, with 320/400/480 health and no armor, but this time with physical damage.

Lore: Patient, disgusting, yet most of all so deeply cruel. For one to start a war right after another, attacking an opponent scarce in resources, is a move as strategic as it is malevolent. Regardless, however, of its sickening nature, the logical clarity of the situation is still present. Famine does frequently come at the end of pestilence, after all.

War
Name: War
Combination Of: Twilight Harasser and Twilight Golem
Appearance: War's are lithe, agile and heavily armored female humanoid figures with skin made of rock, a glowing purple aura emanating around them. A single War has a crown on her head but a mask on her face. Long, purple lines made of energy flow around her head, mimicking hair, and in each of her hands are two giant, single-bladed axes. War's, in general, are not very large--a single War towers over Elven soldiers, but is only roughly the height of a Forest Keeper.

Health: 540/620/700
Damage: 56-88 physical
Armour Rating: Medium (50%)
Magic Resistance: None
Speed: Medium
Lives Taken: 2
Bounty: 35

Abilities:
Obsidian: War takes 0 damage from any attack that deals 10 damage or below.
Stone-Cold: The maximum damage war can take from a single attack is 40. Anything above that is reduced to 40.

Lore: Cold, cunning, calculating as brother fights brother--such is the way of War. And though perhaps it may be debated that more than one mind was involved in her summoning, the ultimate fault still falls upon the one whose hand started the clash between two kingdoms.


Death
Name: Death
Combination Of: Spectral Knight, Executioner and Twilight Avenger.
Appearance: Death is only a giant mass of floating upper armor--he himself has no body. Instead of a helmet, however, he has a single floating skull inside a cylindrical cage. Death wields a sickle in one hand and a scythe in the other.

Health: 580/660/800
Damage: Instakill, melee and ranged (harvests opponent's soul using scythe in melee, or simply retrieves it from range like Vez'Nan)
Armour Rating: None
Magic Resistance: None
Speed: Very Slow
Lives Taken: 3
Bounty: 90

Abilities:
Death-Lock: So long as there is life, so too will there be Death. Death remains completely invulnerable to all damage whenever there are enemies, soldiers or Heroes nearby. Range is similar to a Blood Trickster. Death-Lock cancels immediately once no combatants are in range. Affected Heroes, soldiers and enemies will receive a black aura below them. Does not apply when two Death's are in the same vicinity.

Lore: The Eternal Rider, the end of all roads. Unlike the first three Riders, it is difficult to discern who brought him to our realm, though it should be someone who has been a disciple of slaughter from the very beginning--someone whose sword has claimed countless lives, and whose orders countless more. Our suspicions point only at one man, an individual who has played a vital role in each of the three wars--both as a warrior and a leader--but one may only hope that our suspicions show false... it would only be the bitterest of ironies if the man who tried to protect us may be the one who brought us doom...


ENTRY EIGHT wrote:Kingdom Rush

Name: Demonic Incarnation
Combination Of: Dark Slayer + Demon Lord
Appearance: A Dark Slayer that is bigger than his (or its?) companions. His armor and helm is cracked, flames smouldering inside the cracks. He wields a fiery sword that is similar to a normal Dark Slayer's, but of course larger. The Demonic Incarnation leaves behind a trail of fire as he walks.

Health: 2550
Damage: 24-76
Armour Rating: The Demonic Incarnation has 95% armor at the start. At half health, his armor and helm crack open, remain only as huge metal pieces hanging on his burning skin. He loses all his armor at that point.
Magic Resistance: After shedding the armor, all attacks hit the Demonic Incarnation's runic skin, which has 95% magic resistance.
Speed: Slow
Lives Taken: 5
Bounty: 180

Abilities:
* Greatest Warrior: (passive) Transfer 50% of all raw damage dealt to other enemies to himself and give a small speed boost to the enemies receiving the damage.
* Fiery Blade: (10 seconds) Deals 100 area True Damage.
* Ethereal Shackles: Upon shedding armor, the Demonic Incarnation roars to the sky and raises his arms, creating blazing chains that disable all nearby soldiers and towers for 5 seconds.
* Upon death, explodes for 200 damage and activate Ethereal Shackles again.

Lore: Many Knights have given their soul to the dark so that they can quickly become more powerful. Some of them go too far, in too deep into the darkness, they become so corrupt, yet so powerful that no longer humans they are, but mighty incarnations of shadow and evil.

Kingdom Rush: Frontiers

Name: Saurian Lightslinger
Combination Of: Saurian Darter + Saurian Blazefang
Appearance: A lean Saurian warrior in futuristic armor wrapping tightly around its body. In the right hand, it holds a long silvery pistol, on the left an energy blade. A red head-up display goes across its eyes so it can sense enemies even when they are hidden. The Lightslinger moves in an elegantly quick and stealthy manner. It launches lightbolts at range and draws the energy blade when in melee.

Health: 200
Damage: 18-22 True Damage both at range and in melee. Attacks quickly.
Armour Rating: Low (35%)
Magic Resistance: Low (35%)
Speed: Fast
Lives Taken: 1
Bounty: 30

Abilities:
- Flash: (3 seconds) Dart forwards or backwards upon taking damage, halving that damage by 50% and avoid all negative afflictions. The thing is, the Lightslinger will dart so that a distance equal or more than its attack range is put between itself and the nearest soldier. When out of range, it prefers to dart closer to soldiers, while when soldiers are too close, it will dart away. Either way, the Lightslinger makes sure it lands the most damage and takes the least of it.
- Last Effort: Upon death, blinks to the largest group of soldiers and blows up, dealing True Damage.

Side Note: The Saurian Lightslingers always come together in semi-large groups, and protected by other, more durable enemies.

Lore: The elite of the Saurians, these Lightslingers have been trained so well that they never miss a shot, even with the continual blinking they do. Equipped with the superior, otherworldly technologies of the Saurian Race, the Saurian Lightslingers bring down enemies with no harm to themselves, before the victims can realize what is attacking them.

Kingdom Rush: Origins

Name: Fungus Reaper
Combination Of: Fungus Breeder + Redcap
Appearance: A tiny gnome riding a huge mushroom similar to the Fungus Breeder's, but instead of showing the open mouth, this mushroom clenches shut and blows out noxious gasses as it walks. The gnome has a satchel slung over his shoulder, and holds an abnormally long scythe for such a tiny humanoid.

Health: 500
Damage: 25-45
Armour Rating: None
Magic Resistance: None
Speed: Average
Lives Taken: 4
Bounty: 30

Abilities:
- Transform Boomshrooms into Munchshrooms, but less frequently compare to the Fungus Breeder. He usually has Fungus Breeders accompanying him to do the task.
- Whenever a soldier blocks the Fungus Reaper for too long, like 3 seconds, the gnome gets more and more impatient and may swing his scythe at any time to reap the soldier.
- Fungus Reaping: (10 seconds) The Fungus Reaper lashes out his scythe and reap a Munchshroom nearby, causing it to blow up. The spores released is magically collected into the Fungus Reaper's satchel, healing him by 50 life, then he grab a handful of spores and toss it out, creating 4 Boomshrooms in an area.

Lore: There are Fungus Breeders, and there are Fungus Reaper. These dedicated gnomes have vast experience in breeding an army of mushrooms in under 20 minutes. However they are short-tempered, and really hate those who hinder their work, like intruding their forests...or blocking their way.

All Three Kingdom Rush

Name: Siege Weapon
Combination Of: Raider + Gunboat + Gnoll Burner
Appearance: A wood-and-metal, armed cart pulled by two Raiders with chains slung over their backs and strapped to their armors. The Raiders retain their weapons. The cart is wooden, but covered by patches of spiked steel, rides on spiked steel wheels, and has a cannon at the back that points skywards, shooting small cannonball in the same manner as your own Artillery.

Health: 2500
Damage: When blocked by one unit, both Raiders stop to fight and deal double damage. When blocked by two or more units, the Raiders fight individually. The Raiders can no longer use their ranged attacks.
Armour Rating: Great (85%)
Magic Resistance: None
Speed: Very Slow
Lives Taken: 7
Bounty: 100

Abilities:
+ Firebombs: Fire cannonballs every 1.5 seconds at a medium range, dealing 10-30 area damage and set units on fire, dealing 5-15 DPS.
+ Moving Fortress: Highest priority among all enemies no matter its position. All attacks are directed at the cart. However, soldiers' melee attacks hurt the Raiders. If they manage to kill both Raiders, the Siege Weapon can no longer move, but can still shoot.
+ When destroyed, the cart bursts open, releasing 3 fresh Raiders and set free the chained Raiders, who can now use their ranged attacks normally.

Side Notes: The Siege Weapon always come with large groups of lesser enemies.

Lore: A masterpiece of engineering, the Siege Weapon can do much more than siege fortresses. It can lead attacks, carry troops, demolishing whole armies and cause panic among enemies.

Re: VOTING: Enemy Combination

by Big Bad Bug » Thu Mar 10, 2016 1:27 am

We can change our votes, huh? Will this always be a feature for all Fanfiction contests?

Since I haven't participated in this contest, I'll give reviews as I read each entry.

So far, Entry 1 isn't my cup of tea. The Corpse Reanimator (original autocorrected to "are animator" because autocorrect is so annoying :x ) being a machine isn't a problem, since the backstory justifies its connection with the 2 enemies that inspired it. I don't like that it has to stop to reanimate corpses, since corpses dissappear pretty quickly and zombies aren't very powerful to be that rare. However, I think that the mechanic for rolling over units is really well done, balanced, and an improvement to the Kingpin's similar skill. :)

The Tide Lord is just an OP enemy. It counters everything you throw at it and punishes you just for having towers, making you waste gold. I've always appreciated that throughout KR, there have never been enemies that take gold from the player. Umbra and the Spider Goddess do this indirectly by destroying towers, but the Red Tide is an extremity of a skill that I already disliked in those 2 bosses. Having to pay for towers makes the enemy have a negative effect on your treasury, which no other enemy has had, and for good reason: they'd be too annoying that way. This is especially bothersome since this foe is so tanky and slow that it'll be in range to keep trapping towers again and again, all while killing every soldier you have and pushing enemies straight into the exit. It's not an intimidating foe like it was meant to be; just frustrating and not fun.

Twilight Assassins are really cool. Origins has a plethora of anti-barracks enemies already, but this one is at least more original than some other foes in that game.

Death Creepers are far from anything I expected in this contest, so that's an automatic plus for originality. The instant kill and regeneration as a parentage chance is a really clever way to make barracks not entirely useless against them in case of an emergency, but still greatly discourages players from actively using soldiers against these enemies. That's a brilliant design that makes the spider enemy group a lot more interesting. :)

2 good enemies, 1 disappointing enemy, and 1 frustrating enemy balance each other out for me. If the other entries aren't that good, this one could still get my vote.

Wow, entry seven is good. I'll think about which I want to vote for, but this one'll probs get my vote.

I really like the enemies from entry six they're balanced (except for apophis) original and would add diversity to the games :hero:

Honourable mentions go to:
apophis (loved the demon and loved the movie)
Wendigo
Shadow hare (when I was a child I was constantly afraid of a giant evil rabbit eating me)

Re: VOTING: Enemy Combination

So far, the enemies I find interesting are Pestilence (Entry 7), the Ghost Ship (Entry 3), the Twilight Assassin (Entry 1), and the Siege Weapon (Entry 8). OP enemies are the best ;D .

The entries I'm not really feeling though are Entries 4 and 5. I don't know, I just don't find the concepts interesting, and I don't like how most of the units are highly anti-barracks. Minus points also go to Entry 2, just for the Porkupine. I mean, implying that Bandersnatches and Razorboars made out at one point is... you know, pretty cringeworthy.

Looking back, I may vote for Entry 3. Because, while Entry 7 is super awesome, it kinda' pulls that effect off unfairly, what with all the extra backstory and such. I was led to believe that we were only allowed to give the information that fell into one of the categories in the required entry format. And that belief was further reinforced by the fact that RaZoR disallowed us to put a strategy section in out entries.

Well, it looks like entry seven wins. It already has five votes, while the closest competitors are tied with only one vote each. :lol:

If you just mean will we have another contest again, then yes, but if you mean will we do this same contest ever again, then maybe. (Big maybe.)

When will the next contest be. I am not good at doing them, even though I have ideas. I just don't present them well

How do you make polls. It doesn't seem like I can do it.

I don't know. Certainly after this voting is finished at least. Ask RaZoR for more details.

(Also, only mods can make polls.)

Why does the percentage of votes only equal 99%?

TaTs was working on enabling it for everyone. But so far, no dice.
Just due to percentage math. The rounded numbers don't add up properly.

After much consideration, my vote has been cast in entry 3's favor. (Despite the fact that Entry Seven straight up wins this.:lol:)

I picked One, since the enemies are creative and atmospheric, although they are all very OP. Except for the Tide Lord, who is incredibly vulnerable to insta-kills. It should have been the strongest among the four, but being a rare enemy it can be easily focused and taken out with hero insta-kills like Abduction, or even a well placed Core Drill. Compare to the Corpse Reanimator, which is more common and boasts a huge health bar along with great DPS, or the Assassin, who is even more common and can one-shot heroes, the Tide Lord is simple pale, even with the annoying Red Tide. The last one, Death Reaper, is quite balanced and overall a great unit, strong enough to not be disregarded yet weak enough to be a constant, common threat. It has the annoyance of Reapers and Parasytes, and another portion of annoyance from the insta-kill-and-heal of Redcaps. I guess Alric is the way to go, again. The massive melee damage of the Death Reaper will simply destroy less durable units. The Twister may works, too.

I actually heavily dislike the Death Reaper. It's just another stereotypical antibarracks unit, really. All of its abilities are designed to remove barracks, and we all know that KR doesn't need more of that.

The Corpse Reanimator, though, is more interesting, since it allows a constant stream of fresh new enemies without being irritating, like a Blood Trickster. It then becomes a major target, but never fully a nuisance to the player. The Twilight Assassin is also very interesting, since it's basically an anti-hero unit, something we've never had in all of KR before. Assassins can never use their abilities on normal barracks troops, meaning only heroes can ever possibly be affected by them. The problem, of course, is that its damage is much too high, and can be very irritating to the player. Another problem is how it doesn't affect all Heroes--only Lynn, Reg'son, Razz, Bruce and Bravebark will ever actually be targets for assassination. All other Heroes are in the clear.

The Tide Lord, though, is just a flat-out no. A boringly OP unit who takes gold away from you, and is in no way interesting to fight. It's completely outshined by the much more interesting Twilight Assassin and Corpse Reanimator.
