On Facebook and Twitter, I asked which of the following monsters you wanted me to reveal today. The choices were between Pyromancer, The Crestfallen, or the Astrologian, and you chose The Crestfallen! If you’d like to participate in the next vote (coming in just a few days), remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
Even though The Negative is a very different game than Siralim, and these games take place in very different worlds, I like the idea of tying all my RPGs together with some easter eggs. I don’t want players to feel like they’re missing out on anything major by not playing an older game, but I think the people who have been with us for a while might appreciate the subtle nods to past games every now and then. The Crestfallen is a good example of this.
The Crestfallen belongs to the Life class, and has a set of skills that are very unique compared to those of other monsters. Most notably, The Crestfallen cannot equip any items – instead, it receives a large, passive boost to all its stats. Of course, if you don’t like that play style, you’re welcome to get rid of the skill via monster fusion.
Cleave: Target and the enemies surrounding the target take a small amount of damage.
Sword Dance: Deals a small amount of damage to the target, then this monster moves to a random location.
Blade of Judgment: Deals a moderate amount of damage to the target. This skill is used repeatedly until it misses. This skill has a 100% chance to hit the target, and this chance is cut in half each time it is used during this monster’s turn.
Blade of Mercy: Deals a moderate amount of damage to the target. If the amount of damage exceeds 50% of the target’s Maximum HP, the target is killed.
Abstinence: This monster cannot equip items. In addition, it has 35% more Power, Defense, Speed, and Luck.
Sweeping Blade: When this monster moves, it attacks a random enemy.
Riposte: When this monster is attacked, and the attack deals less than 20% of its Maximum HP, this monster counterattacks the enemy.
Soulstealer: When this monster kills an enemy, it gains a large amount of Power and Luck.
Do you know whose soul might be inhabiting this sword?
