KINGDOM RUSH: LEGENDS


Kingdom Rush: Legends, inspired by Chronicles by Razor Leaf, is set a hundred years after the events in Frontiers. Legends takes place in an arid, mostly desert land far south of Hammerhold. Linirea and its allies have long been devastated by wars and epidemics, and its only descendants are ruled by you, the High King, the monarch of the kingdom of the Heirs of Denas, and the sole commander of its forces. In an age when magic is waning, the King struggles to cope with the now war-torn world which is filled with evil beings. The main campaign of Kingdom Rush: Legends revolves around a mysterious hammer which is said to be inlaid with an artifact which is rumored to hold the wrath of the Goddess of the Elves, a race which dwelled long ago in Aredhel, far north of where Legends takes place.

Comic Intro
Panel 1: Two guards stand just outside a dense forest.
Panel 2: One of them looks back out on a partly ruined fortress surrounded by a dry moat and an endless desert.
Panel 3: Suddenly, one of the guards is startled and slashed with a pincer-like object, and is pulled into the forest.
Panel 4: The other guard follows, and comes to a dead end in the darkness of the forest.
Panel 5: He looks back, and sees several insect-like silhouettes and bright, menacing eyes.

Level One: The Winding Trail

[+] SPOILER
Your Majesty! Our bitter enemies the Darksouls have ravaged all our holdings and destroyed our fortress. And in the midst of our war, several strange creatures have suddenly emerged from the dense western forests and attacked our men. We must stop them before they break into our stronghold and slaughter all our people!

Entrances: 1
Exits: 1

Events:

New Enemy - Wave 1

Mite
(Insectoid)

Mites, the most basic enemies in KRL, have brown exoskeletons and almost hand-like pincers. Their bodies are a bit scaly, and they have black fangs.

Half human, half insect, the fast Mites are always foraging for food.

Hitpoints: 35
Physical Damage: 2-
- Strikes at enemies every 2 seconds.
Physical Armor: None (0%)
Magical Resistance: None (0%)
Speed: Fast
- Scurries forward quickly.
Lives: 1
Bounty: 5

Reinforcements - Wave 2

You can use Reinforcements which are available every 10 seconds. They and are free and can be placed anywhere on the path.

New Enemy - Wave 3

Irontick
(Insectoid)

Ironticks are slightly bigger than Mites. They have pale orange exoskeletons and black fangs and pincers. They cover their heads with silver helms and also wear silver shoulder pads.

Tough Insectoids that can cause their enemies to bleed, inflicting additional damage.

Hitpoints: 120

Lives: 1
Bounty: 12
*Bleeding Bite: With every attack, the Irontick has 10% chance to impale the target, causing 5 damage per second for 5 seconds.

Heroes - Wave 4

Heroes are powerful units at your command that can be used to engage tough enemies. They gain experience every time they attack enemies or use a ability, and can level up with enough experience.

I haven't yet decided the first hero unlocked in KRL.

Epidemic - Wave 5

Plague your enemies with a deadly pestilence! Epidemic causes heavy damage and slows enemies, but is best used for a big opportunity, as it has a long cooldown.

Substituting for Rain of Fire and Thunderbolt, Epidemic is a spell that causes heavy damage, slows enemies, silences them and also reduces their attack speed. As it's a bit more powerful than the two former spells, it has a longer cooldown, which also can't be reduced by upgrades.

Hero Spell - Wave 6
Every hero has a unique spell that can be used alongside Epidemic! Though they are weaker, they still give you quite a good advantage in battle.

I haven't decided the first hero or his spell yet.

New Enemy - Wave 7

Solifugid
(Insectoid)

Solifugids are a bit bigger than Ironticks, and have light brown, furry exoskeletons and bright yellow fangs. They have beady eyes and ultra-sharp, black pincers.

Extremely fast and deadly, Solifugids can dart to their prey and slice them to pieces in no time.

Hitpoints: 170
Physical Damage: 25-35
- Slashes enemies every 1 second.
Physical Armor: None (0%)
Magical Resistance: None (0%)
Speed: Fast
- Darts ahead with a quick pace
Lives: 1
Bounty: 25
*Double Damage: With every attack, Solifugids have 20% chance to deal double damage.


Level Two: Jungle's Deep

[+] SPOILER
The attack at the Trail was just a distraction. The eerie creatures plundered our stronghold when we were busy fighting their forces up west. Half-human, half-insect, these savage creatures have multiplied alarmingly in a small amount of time, and are now planning to gather in the forest and launch a full-scale assault on our fortress!

We must stop them before they gather their strength and crush our kingdom!

New Enemy - Wave 2

Darklings are one of the fastest ground troop the Insectoids have to offer. They are black-bodied and have red eyes, black pincers and fangs, and are almost completely insect. Their legs are long and spread out.

New Enemy - Wave 5

Cicada
(Insectoid)

Pale brown and black-colored flying insects with wings bordered with red, Cicadas are completely insect and have nothing human in them. They beat their wings very quickly and have long antennae. Their eyes are black and blue, with matching pincers.

With lightning speed, Cicadas zip through the air, causing great noise that stuns all soldiers below them.

Level Three: The Emerald Cross

As we are pushed deeper and deeper into the unforbiddin woods, our enemies showing no sign of retreat, we stumble into the feared Emerald Cross. This clearing was once known for the terrifying creatures it harbored, and we have also received some clue hinting the Darksoul Empire's part in the enragement of the Insectoids.

Your Majesty, we must hold off the oncoming Insectoid hordes and survive the Cross if we are to return to our fortress and mobilize our forces against the Darksoul threat!

If I told you Chronicles was only about a third done you'd have a fit, but still you're making a big effort and I’m super happy to see another big design start.

Small Update

I've added the level map for the Emerald Cross.

Also, for the premium hero poll, once a faction (Humanoid, Creature, Demon, Spirit or Mech) reaches 10 votes, I'll proceed onto the aesthetics of the hero.
