0 comments by numbersix on Jun 18th, 2014

I may have the gold release strategy for Chaos mod: Archon.


never thought I'd see this

The original chaos mod had its origins in mid '03.
All it ever amounted to was a tech demo.

The chaos mod mark II - Archon, rose up from the ashes in early '10.
I have long been troubled by the lack of a final plan.
The design to bring out the conflict between the powers of Chaos and Order has mostly lacked a clear goal.  (I was influenced by: Time Master Trilogy Amazon.com and Elric of Melnibone Amazon.com )

Current prognosis:

The conflict will end in either total chaos or total order.  Complete states to be defined fully.
Archons Chaos and Order as they are now must be re-designed.

To cast spells both Archons will need to create a "Vessel" and invest it with Archon points.
Once a vessel exists the Archon can use its full magic potential.
The vessel could likely be anything (ammo boxes, large diamonds, etc...) and needs to be hidden on the map.

Every other player is now engaged in Archon vessel CTF - find the vessel, carry to any altar, sacrifice it.  Then get the archon points it contained.

Demi Archons will be added - get enough points, sacrifice a vessel - the next morph cube will grant demi-Archon choices: Dragonite, Wraith, Shape-shifter, and possible others.
If Chaos or Order get de-archoned, a demi Archon can quickly take up that mantle.  There will be only one of each.

Once Chaos or Order sacrifices 6 vessels and acquires enough power - Total Chaos or Order is achieved.  The opposing Archon is made immaterial and must wait for the total state to end.
Then all players start over.

Some other design ideas exist.  The volcano will live again!

Thanks for your interest. I answered on your page.
It got long-ish. Guess I'm still passionate about that mod and its downfall.
