I'm not 100% sure if this is the right board for it, but I'll ask anyway.
For a Searchers of the Unknown hack I'm planning, I was going to have spells that have multiple power levels (similar to Base/Basera/Basega/Baseja spells in Final Fantasy, Base/Gibase/Nabase/Dobase spells in Phantasy Star, and Base/Basela/Basedyne spells in Persona.)
Right now, I have:
- 1d8 damage to one target on a successful attack roll (+1d8/2 levels)
- 1d6 damage to one target (+1d6/2 levels) and minimum damage to adjacent creatures, target and adjacent creatures must save to halve damage
- 1d6 damage to all targets in a 30 foot line (+1d6/2 levels), save to avoid damage
- 1d4 damage to all targets in a 15' cone (+1d4/2 levels?), save to halve damage
Those would be the base levels. I'm not sure how to do higher-tier variants; maybe larger dice for the first spell, wider splash range on the second, longer line on the third, more dice on the fourth?
Any ideas would be awesome about this. Thanks, everyone =)
