Weapons
« on: October 25, 2016, 04:59:52 pm »
What kind of weapons and types of weapons will be in Realms of Magic?
And will there be weapons you don't usually see like sickles, kamas, scythes, katanas, chackrams, guns, and things like that.
Will there be firearms?

Currently we are not planning firearms, we want to stick to pre-gunpowder level of technology.

We want as many different weapons as possible, however every new weapon type would require new combat system (new animations and a skill tree) to stay on par with other weapons.

For now we will stick to basics: 1h and 2h swords, axes and hammers, spears, bows, crossbows and thrown weapons. When we will consider these weapon types fully finished, then we will think about creating new weapon types. However we may implement weapons without their own skill trees like pitchforks, that would be just weaker than standard weapons and would be primarly used by NPCs.

Okay that will be cool considering all ties the use of gunpowder may not arrive at any point. I like the idea of weapons having one handed and two handed versions.
And when will you release some weapons and armors screenshots?
Will the tools pickaxes and axes and such be able to work as a weapon as well?

We will start showing our weapons and armors when we are finished with our Animator.

You will be able to use tools as weapons if you equip them in a weapon slot, however they won't be as good as dedicated weapons.

How do spears work? Are they going to be ranged weapons or melee?

Two-handed spears will always be melee, while one-handed will be both. We haven't yet decided if we will have two different one-handed spear types, one for melee and one for throwing, or the same one will be used for both.

You could make active skill which allow to throw spear or any other weapon (something like that is already in Divine Divinity).

Weapon throwing is something we've thought about and we will definitely experiment with it at some point.
