Way too fast, i think 40 or 50 seconds is enough, i mean any less and itd be OP. Though id much prefer it to be based on kills, kill 20-30 enemies and then it activates, or at least has a high percentage chance of happening.

So many better ideas... Too bad it can't be changed now...

I think 40 seconds would be good. After all, a really long gap between revival and normal death would make the ability rare in actual combat, so her playstyle still wouldn't be influenced all that much. It would definitely still make a difference, but not as much. 40 seconds feels like it can happen pretty often without feeling like something that can be abused. I also believe that a full health revival should exist for the skill at all upgrade levels. We don't want to repeat the UPness of Templars.

I'm pretty sure the skill is still going to stay as a chance revival. That's what the writing states in the poll, so people voting for that are expecting a %. Changing it would pretty much be lying. Good thing a percentage chance is still perfectly fine. ;)

Hero will revive with a chance. And chances are 1/1. Problem soved :) Also, levelling to %100 means there still will be chances at the beginning levels.

Hyped for the portraits atm.

Wait a second, 50 pages?

I missed out a lot, it seems.

Can somebody sum up the part I lost of the S***posting Saga: Rise of the Fallen angel?

We've pretty much reached the near-end of the voting, having decided on equipment on abilities most recently. The next poll will decide the actual appearance of the hero. :)

Haven't given up on the diablo-style/curly hair female+toga design yet.

I just hope people aren't going to pick purple-haired(I'm willing to go with bright red, but that's it) overweight women(like tumblr would).

I think we should go with JB's idea: She has a revival chance upon death, and when it doesn't happen, she blows up, dealing huge damage. Either way it would be satisfying, and makes people willing to let her die sometimes to make a dent on a big mook: She may revive and keep blocking the nasty foe, dealing damage, or she blows, dealing even more damage to that one and those around it. This way it won't feel like cheating the fans who have decided, but rather like an add-on to the skill to make it much, much better.

No, if the fans wanted an explosion on death, they would have voted for that option. If the hero exploded on death, this would make the combination of both effects OP, and it would have to be nerfed to lame-o levels to be a balanced, and then it wouldn't do anything.

How about this: the hero starts the stage with a 0% chance of revival, and this chance slowly increases over time; when the chance is 100%, the hero gains a halo to show the player that they don't have to worry as much about the hero. Reviving or dying would of course would reset the counter. At max level the chance would reach maximum in around a minute.
In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Complex at first, but easy to catch on to. I thing that the halo should just glow brighter and brighter as the chance increases, then become noticeably significant at maximum power in a similar way to Bastion. I think thisis the best way to do this, with the description:

[Hero] gains a 1/2/3% chance every second to revive from death, resetting with each life.

As a member of tumblr, I hope people don't pick a diablo look a like in a toga, like the unoriginal google image search community.

Nah, tumblr people (maybe just me&people i know) wouldn't go overweight. Purple hair maybe. With dark clothes.

Aaaand, don't toga look so "from heaven" or "from Romans"? Another hero might fit well inside within the KR universe but this wouldn't look cool enough i think.

God damn it.

I hope it's the sane part of tumblr, at least.

Okay, let's say it's not a toga+curly hair or diablo-style angel, what then? Armoured winged woman with a (horned, though I really hope they don't do that) helmet on? A pink mass of light engulfed by a burka-like robe?

You know, there can be good designs other than what I first mentioned, but the most cliche designs are the ones that will 100% enter the contest.

How do you know that generic ideas will enter the contest? Ironhide necer goes for clichés unless it's for comedy, and even then they often use subversion. Some of the previous possibilities for the hero have been far from cliché, like the unicorn option and many of the demon choices. We'll have some pretty cool designs to choose from for the hero.

I love number two, it has a sci-fi look about it. It reminds me of the 'angels' in Tales of Symphonia.
