"the bruise will look nice, and maybe the scars will make nice party talk."

"drug dealer was critically hit in the right leg for 25 hit points, smashing the knee into the next town."

"metzger was critically hit in the head for 27 hit points. the attack crushes the temple. good night, gracie."

"slaver was critically hit in the right leg for 22 hit points, knocking him to the ground like a bowling pin in a league game."

"mole rat was critically hit in the head for 24 hit points, squashing the rodent's skull like a wet paper bag."

 

don't we all like 'em?

 

oh, also from wasteland :) :

"COVENANT brutally pummels the Wasteland Warrior for 33 points of damage, exploding him like a blood sausage."

If you can turn it off why not. But please don't make messages like that obligatory!

Of course yay!

There will be dwarves included, as cliche as it is no dwarf should be staying silent in a battle. Ever!

Unless they are thieves or monks :)


Nothing is true, everything is permited.

Oh yes, yes!

Just try and keep it in-universe.

 

of course. i mean they can't use the word blood sausage even if they wanted to :p

 

how 'bout this taunt:

 

Quog'ralin was hit for a massive 35 pts of damage. Your karach blade slices off the abishai's arm clean. Maybe you should pick it up and bludgeon some sense into that thick baatezu's cranium.

sh*t like this...and change the planescape cant with the eternity's.

Blood sausage is just a type of food, zero chance anyone has that copyrighted. Anyone can use it in any way they want.

 

"slaver was critically hit in the stomach for 22 hit points, his guts spilling out like blood sausage all over the floor."

Not sure how combat messages are supposed to work in a real time game where you're not reading every line of combat text to see what happened.

If they will be text only like Fallout, and with an option to to toggle them like Fallout, then yes.

 

Problem: Real time combat...

 

BTW! You're examples aren't combat taunts at all, they're just pip-boy descriptions o.o

I'm still stuck on combat logs being data driven. I want to see the attack rolls vs. the defense. I want to see the attack value with modifiers that results in damage. But you can't do all of these numbers this way. Or, you can, but I don't think it's a good idea.

 

I fear it would produce a very uneven tone from the log.

Yeah, I agree. Perhaps it could be limited to just killing blows. It would add some flavour if there is only two animations for dying. (normal and extreme/gibbing)

Yes and head over texts like Fallout would be great. I still chuckle when i remember a Mutie calling "badass moving in" and firing his minigun!
