Hi Guys,

We've got a lot of new battle messages to write for our new battle system.  If you fancy helping out what we need is formats like the following...

Weapon Example
"%ATTACKER% hacks %DEFENDER%'s systems with a Computer Virus through the %TARGET% causing massive power fluctuations.'

Shield Example
"%DEFENDER%'s Cardboardium Alloy Plating yields slightly to the attack but still absorbs some of the damage."

and as you can see it needs to include the following...

%ATTACKER% (only for weapon messages), %DEFENDER%, <Weapon/Shield Name>, %TARGET (only for weapon messages and they are head, left leg, body, right arm etc).  Try to keep the %ATTACKER% and %DEFENDER% at the start of the message.

We need three for each of the following weapons and shields.  Low, medium and high damage messages.

  • Necronomicon
  • Balrog on a Leash
  • Steam Forum Thread
  • Unholy Hand Grenade
  • Deadly Neurotoxin
  • Strapless Wiimote

  • UN Weapons Inspector
  • Diplomatic Immunity
  • Massive Ego
  • Action Hero Aura
  • The One Ring
  • Nuclear Submarine
  • Adamantium Shield
  • Somebody Else's Problem Field
  • Carefully Constructed Maze of Towers

We may not use the ideas posted and if we do all the rights will belong to us (for legal reason again!).  Good luck!

Weapon: Necronomicon
damage: low

%ATTACKER% quickly seizes the Necronomicon and verbalize the words within. The dead rises from the ground and the earth shakes. Underneath %DEFENDER% a skeleton rises up and causes %DEFENDER% to trip and take minor damage to the %TARGET%.
I don't lie about stuff like that.

weapon: Unholy Hand Grenade
damage: High

%ATTACKER% lays down the Unholy Hand Grenade. %DEFENDER% in awe looks back at %ATTACKER% and gasps, and before being able to react, inhales the putrid fumes of %ATTACKER%'s flatulence causing so much damage to the %TARGET% that it nearly melts away.
I don't lie about stuff like that.

Weapon: Deadly Neurotoxin

Damage Medium:

GLaDOS.. no wait.. %ATTACKER%... releases some Deadly Neurotoxin, which %DEFENDER% is very intolerant to and takes damage to the %TARGET%.

I don't lie about stuff like that.

Shield: Diplomatic Immunity

defence: low

%DEFENDER%'s lawyers throws their suitcases out in front of %DEFENDER% providing almost no protection.

defence: mid
%DEFENDER% opens their mouth and shouts diplomatic gibberish to find that diplomacy does not always work.

defence: high

%DEFENDER%'s diplomatic immunity kicks in with a sudden burst of diplomatic negotiating and provides %DEFENDER% with safe passage through the incoming attack

Thanks for all the help Inveracity (and Bananaboy from IRC).  We've finished all the battle messages now.
