So I wanted to create a weapon that embodies randomness. What could be more random than a set of playing cards? (You might want to ask that question to an accomplished magician.) Enchanted Card: 33% chance of dropping from Pirate Captains in stacks of 10-15 2% chance of dropping from Pirate Deckhand, Deadeye, Crossbower, Corsair in stacks of 4-6 And you can place it as a background wall if you want. But that's not the main purpose of these things, is it? Pirate's Deck (Somewhat of a play on words... deck of cards, geddit?) 60 magic damage* Insanely fast speed Uses 3 mana Shoots a storm of enchanted cards that do random damage from a bottomless deck *it's more complicated than that Crafting recipe: Enchanted Card x52, Pixie Dust x30 @ Mythril Anvil And heeeere are the sprites. Thanks, Zoomo! From left to right, it's the Enchanted Card, the sprite for the Pirate's Deck itself, and the four forms the projectiles can take. Pretty neat! Now, let me explain the randomness bit. I added 3 elements of randomness that should make this really fun to use. The base damage of each projectile is any integer between 1 and the written amount of damage (with no modifiers, 60). So on average it'll be around 30, but damage modifications will still apply. Do you know how the Magic Dagger flies straight for a certain distance, then drops like a rock? Well, cards fired from the Pirate's Deck also fly for a certain distance before becoming heavily affected by gravity. But as those who have tried throwing cards themselves know, the distance they'll fly is... you guessed it... random. It could fall practically right in front of you, it could fly for half a screen. (The animation for when it starts to fall will show it spinning sideways so you can identify the card.) Final element of randomness: Every card fired from the Pirate's Deck will pierce every enemy it scores a critical hit on. The degree of crowd control will therefore be pretty random. Easter Eggs: Every card has a 1/777 chance of ignoring damage calculation and instantly critting for 777 damage, and also inflicting Midas. Also, it re-textures Orichalcum petals into playing cards, but it's purely cosmetic. So that ought to be a fun weapon to use, don't you think? Let me know in the comments.
