RPG Part 2.
« on: January 18, 2008, 10:46:30 AM »
The game I've been working on has 3 main archetypes as "classes". These are Combat, Stealth and Magic. Each archetype has a number of specializations. The character is allowed 3 specializations with a lot of their main functionality being derived from the Primary Specialization. Advancement in the Secondary and Tertiary Specs are slower, and provide reduced benefits as opposed to the Primary.

Now that that is out of the way... One of the main features are Maneuvers. These are in effect class abilities. There are 4 classes of Maneuvers; Perks, Combat, Stealth and Magic. The last three split along the specializations, i.e. Melee Spec gets to pick from Melee Maneuvers. Now, Some of the categories are a tad light in maneuvers. Any suggestions would be appreciated to flesh out the areas. Of particular interest for suggestions are the Stealth and Magic maneuvers.
