Ultimate Melee

Postby RJ » Sat Aug 14, 2010 12:28 pm

Ever thought that the current BrikWars melee-on-melee system was either to disjointed or too complicated to read? Fear not! I have thought of a brand new melee system that is for melee duals. It can be done separately in small sessions, in the heat of BrikWars combat and even tournaments! I bring you:
ULTIMATE MELEE!

Before each turn, both the players secretly write down their 5 moves for that turn. Afterwards they see which moves beat which. If two attacks are the same, it can be settled by a coin. Each winning attack takes away 1 HP (special moves can be exceptions as they have their own rules and block only stops attacks instead of attacking.) deduct from the starting 5 HP (variable). Play continues until one player stands victorious.

Setting is your first problem. It could be anything from...

A noble space-captain protecting himself from a lethal pirate...
Image

To a medieval Millwall game...
Image

Using some of the deadliest warriors in time...
Image

But now, as a demonstration, on an empty chessboard...
Image

Using a noble adventurer...
Image

And a space samurai...
Image

The Space Samurai uses a low sweep attack which is beaten by the adventurer's high leap attack.
Image

The Space Samurai uses a medium attack but is beaten by the adventurer's low attack.
Image

The adventurer's medium attack beats the Space Samurai's high attack.
Image

The adventurer blocks the Space Samurai's attack.
Image

But when the Space Samurai tries to block, the adventurer kicks him away.
Image

Once again, the Space Samurai copies the adventurers attack and kicks. It does not end well.
Image

Here is the basic rule table.

high beats low
low beats medium
medium beats high
block blocks attacks
kick beats block
h, l, and m beat kick

The adventurer has won.
Image

But then, you could add in extra rounds for best 2 out of 3 etc...
Image

You could add dismemberment to give attacks a tactical edge.
Image

You can also give your character 3 special moves with special rules. One per turn.

Like the adventurers whip.
Image

Or his gun.
Image

Or maybe his hat.
Image

You could add disarming.
Image

You could give weapon stealing moves.
Image

It's all up to how you want to humiliate your opponent the most.
Image

And now without further ado, I give you the first Ultimate Melee match, re-enacted through pictures.

Nosebleed arrives at his destination...
Image

And draws his weapons.
Image

Image

He waits for his target to reveal himself.
Image

The Robotic Ranger springs from his hiding place...
Image

Image

RR blocks Nosebleeds high attack.
Image

Nosebleed uses his special move, dodge, to avoid RR's low attack.
Image

Nosebleed comes round with a medium attack...
Image

But is hit by RR's special attack, missile launch, which takes away an instant HP.
Image

Nosebleed redirects the Missile before he is obliterated.
Image

Then, both try to kick each other. However, no damage is done.
Image

having swapped sides on the playing field, the two warriors face each other down.
Image

Nosebleed blocks a quick medium attack from RR.
Image

Then RR comes round with another...
Image

Which is then dodged by Nosebleed.
Image

RR and Nosebleed then both try to block each other.
Image

RR goes for a high attack but Nosebleed dives under with a low attack...
Image

Taking RR down...
Image

Nosebleed runs with his beatsticks outstretched.
Image

Then catapults himself into the air, coming round for a high attack.
Image

However, RR uses his Pyroblaster ability. It is a medium attack that does double damage.
Image

Enough to take out Nosebleed's remaining 2 HP...
Image

And with and explosion of LEGO body parts...
Image

My brother beats me at my own game.
Image

A fatality rule is being added. If your opponent is down to 1 HP, and you beat them in an attack, you can take the risk of doing a fatality and roll a dice. If you roll a 5 or 6, your fatality succeeds and you get to do an extra humiliating fatality attack. A 3 or 4 and you miss the attack. However, if you roll a 1 or 2, you give your opponent enough of a chance to actually heal 1 HP.

What do you think? Pretty cool huh?

Nice photo sets. I love the Robotic Ranger.

If nothing else the photos will help sell your ideas. :D

Is this based on that old Bionicle game from 2005?

Possibly, I like quirks thrown in to play at times, I'd have to give it a try in play. The helmet on that Battlesuit/Mecha is very nice too, h'mmm why do I always need more stuff.

No. It's vaguely based off another Melee game I saw though I have improved it.

Do you think I should start a forum tournament?

I think this is a good idea and will include it in my BrikWars RPG attempt

This mechanic will be featuring in Colossal Conflict for the Crown, my new forum battle for those interested.

These looks vaguely similar to the duel rules I came up with. I think this is only really plausible with two to four figures, though. The writing, though crucial, is something I'm skeptical about as well. Other than that, this looks like it could be used epically in RPG style battles, tournaments, duels, ect.

Yeah, I'm thinking of doing a tournament after the forum battle. I'll ask people to create their own character and stuff.

If it's for an in-depth dueling game, sure. But otherwise, it'll just slow everything down.

Although, didn't you have an earlier account with which you pissed everyone off?
