The electric or metal mages could be like Yeomen crossed with Monk Grandmaster in martial arts with some weapons (like staff , dagger, flail, polearms, knife, or other similar weapon like 2-handed sword getting at least skilled and the others to basic.Expert at healing (like ice mage is expert at enchantment and flame mage is expert at divination) with starting eq similar in ac to flame or ice mage but gloves and robe instead of leather armor.

The etheric or air mages would be like rangers/rogues in starting eq and poison resist but expert in flail and bow or dart (maybe firearms too) with flail and/or one item (bow and 2 sets of arrows , +0 darts, or rifle and bullets). staff could be capped to skilled. Starting equipment could be +0 cloak of protection, magic resistance, displacement, or invisibility and maybe 0+ leather gloves. Expert in body spells and maybe skilled in attack so that poison blast could be cast (possibly it would be a "special spell")

Discussion

  • OOOPs and one other thing (LOL) the one reason that I thought of these in the first place Electric/metal mages would cast create shock sphere and the etheric/air mages would cast create gas spore.

    also maybe at level 23 all (element) mages get a choice of elemental summon (with level +4 HP) if matter spells are expert instead of 3 spheres (like fire elemental for flame mages earth elemental for ice mages
    air elemental for air mages, water elemental for metal mages) Or possibly vortexes (fire, ice, dust, or energy)

     
  • If someone could direct me to downloading the source code for slashem and some tutorials about how to code a new player cast into the source and then compile...I would be willing to try out my idea and see If I could make this class a reality with a patch for people to download.

  • So I have made much progress even though there isn't any info anywhere about how to add a role. I just modded the ice mage to electric mage and the fire mage to etheric mage. (the names are the same but the character class is different). I'm still fine tuning it. I was wondering how people rip (maybe rip isnt the right word "dump" or "diff") their source code changes to a diff or patch file so that others can use it with their source?

    Still working out the problems, but VERY VERY close.
