Repurposing The "Consume Corpse" Ability

Post by Puss_in_Boots » Sun Nov 05, 2017 3:43 am

In AoUFO(Advanced Fanatsy Version of AoWw), it was agreed that races which use corpses for production, will not be able to find use out if this ability. Raise dead is the much better option, and typically players will have more than enough lichs around to keep raising deads.

Drawing from the characteristics of Orcs killing eachother just to cause some damage to the enemy. I could make the conclusion that they wouldn't mind eating corpses as well. To sustain the army.

There we have the unruly traits of Orcs in the game without turning it into penalty! Just as teams of game designers have warned against, we can avoid damage to eachother and mark the aspect off the checklist.

How does everybody else feel?

Do you mean to give that to orcs? Or to give them an ability to avoid dropping corpses?

He means making orcs cannibals. I actually agree with this. Undead can't use consume corpse, because it makes less sense to heal a unit than to just make a brand new one. Orcs could use consume corpse to avoid needing to produce as many shamans, or heal in a sticky situation. They can't raise dead, so it's not as useless as it is for undead, and it definitely adds...........flavor​........to an orcish playing experience​.

Exactly as Sunrise Samurai said, we should give them the ability to consume corpses. The Undeads might need another competitor for corpses rather than their own race. Especially with more unit ideas coming in that cannot be summoned directly from corpses.

It is similar to another proposal I've made in the past. I should check.

Well if you've already suggested something similar in the past, should I assume you like the idea?

Yes, even though it was a bit different. We might make a tech tree on this theme.

Any specific suggestions? A tech tree sounds nice, but so far all I can think of is giving consume corpse as is, unchanged, with a tech to enable it.
