[1 dismissal] New Wizard Spell: Summon Guns


Recommended Posts

AKA, Wizard:
Manmode
No Traces
Final Destination
Ironman Mode Enabled
Autosave Disabled
Hotel Trivago

Premise: Wizard takes the "Summon Guns" challenge contract, which refunds a spell slot and grants 2 additional spell slots to the Wizard's total. "Summon Guns" may only be taken once as a spell contract. Upon taking the contract, a random firearm from a list of valid firearms (meaning no BFG9000, if the BFG9000 were to spawn it'd need to be weighted very low chance) spawns at every single player mob's feet in the game, including the wizard.

Dude, why?:
 Wizard is already a very unserious game mode and greatly shatters the typical immersion of gameplay, moreso than cult does. I don't think it'd change too much if wizards could suddenly spawn a ton of guns (once) to add a little spice to the round and a bit of challenge to themselves, considering they'd arm the entire crew with a means to kill them if necessary.

Wizards tend to be moreso intended to make the crew laugh and cry, so I think Summon Guns would greatly influence that factor by about twice as much if everyone suddenly has a gun at their feet.

A valid argument, but then I say just remove the gamemode since it's inappropriate for an HRP server as is. 

THE WIZARD ROUND HAS EXACTLY ONE WIZARD WITH A WIDE ARRAY OF SPELLS. SOME OF THOSE SPELLS CAN KILL PEOPLE. SOME OF THEM CONTRIBUTE TO "ROLEPLAY". THE WIZARD GAME MODE IS ACCEPTABLE FOR HEAVY ROLEPLAY AS IS. GIVING EVERYONE ON THE STATION A GUN IS NOT.

I was talking to Garn, as well. He also gave his approval for the clown/entertainer PR, so

CLOWNS UNIRONICALLY WILL BREATHE NEW LIFE INTO THIS SERVERS ROLEPLAY ECOSYSTEM. WHAT IN GOD'S NAME DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU GIVE EVERYONE ON THE STATION A GUN?

 

OH FUCK I JUST GOT GIVEN A GUN.... AWWW.... SERVER RULES..... I CANT USE IT :(((((((

How do you know giving someone a gun won't generate interesting roleplay? Traitors can be given guns by the uplink through their TC, so what's wrong with that?

So will guns when everyone has them (for a round). You're an American, I don't get how you do not understand the joy of this.

I mean if you get one, and everyone has one, nobody's gonna want to shoot each other and will be hesitant for it. Maybe security will pull a huge fash-ism, go ape-shit over everyone having guns and end up creating a revolution round out of improperly handling the gun issue. That sounds like a lot of potential for different branching paths of interaction. Imagine if a clown got a gun...

Yeah I dont think adding TG spells such as summon guns is a good idea as it just promotes the valid hunting mindset even more, especially for people who have the RNG luck on their side and get a powerful weapon right in front of them. That and the spell is extremely unsuitable for HRP as its quite literally just "The station gets a massive buff and the wizard gets fucked over unless hes a lich."
