an alternate meteorite
Welcome to Shooting Star, an alternate Meteorite biome. Shooting Star was kind of a side-project while I fleshed out some of my more larger biome alternates. The more I worked on it though, the more I thought "Damn. Now this has to be a thing". Shooting Star is the catalyst for the newer alternate projects coming down the lines. So if you like my alts, Shooting Star is to thank for being able to get even more of them. The theme itself is pretty simple. I designed most things with influences from Sailor Moon, Power Rangers, and G-Force: Guardians of Space. So if some things feel familiar to you, those are the things to blame.As your powers grow the heavens look down in envy. Celestial fire strikes the earth to challenge you. Should you overcome the dangers from above, you may yet grow even stronger.
There's nothing here yet!

This is a suggestion. And as such does not assume anything definitively. This means...
Balance is a non-issue; the numbers are provided to elicit an idea of what values an object could have. If the not-set-in-stone-imaginary numbers upset you, you're welcome to suggest other numbers, but they have no bearing on the suggestion changed or not.
Sprites are a non-issue; sprites have been provided, like balance, to help imagine the suggestion as a concept. In no way are any of the sprites final. Just like the numbers, they too are not-set-in-stone-imaginary things. This means that recolored, spliced, and unique sprites have no ultimate bearing on the suggestion. If any particular sprite upsets you, you are welcome to provide one of your own to remedy the not-actually-an-issue so that I may reject it.
This is an alternate. This means that Shooting Star can occur in a world instead of Meteorites. It does not replace Meteorites. As an alternate, Shooting Star additionally does not mirror the values or gameplay of Meteorites in a 1:1 ratio. It is it's own biome, not a recolor or reskin. Shooting Star is also NOT an expansion. There is no additional content. Content included in Shooting Stars is a counterpart or replacement of existing content given to Meteorites.
Lastly; as an alternate (and not an expansion or replacement), Shooting Star does not assume to redefine class balance. I'm sorry if your favorite class isn't represented well in the suggestion. If Meteorites represented all classes equally, so too would Shooting Stars.
