New Weapons System - Image Concept Art

Recommended Posts

Good Morning I am new to this forum and I am trying to learn to use Photoshop.

I have designed a weapon system for fire emblem I hope you like it and I wish to get some feed back on what people think about it and how it will affect class composition and game play etc

Weapons 

Swords will cover all variants on traditional blades: Rapiers, Broad Swords, Sweihandlers and also oriental blades such as katakana and masamune etc

Axes are covering blunt weapons such as clubs, scythes and magi-stars.

Lances cover piked weapons such a tridents and poles etc

Magic

Arcane is the new replacement for "dark" magic. I found the term quite archaic so I replaced it with the study of the arcane mostly dealing with space and time. practitioners can use spells such as warp, re-warp, teleport and worm. They will also be able to build nexus's, powerful areas on empty times that serve a variety of functions, for example similar to the light rune from FE-7 and the effects of the barrier staff. These concepts are still a work in progress. 

Tomes represent the contemporary studies of magic and are concerned with the manipulation of energy in it's terrestrial forms, Fire, Wind, Ice and Thunder. These will all be lumped into a Anima and fall under the Weapon Type of tomes. Not all mages will wield every type, for balancing issues. I am still playing with this concept.

Users of Scepters specialize in light magic which can be used to vanquish otherworldly creatures, bestow powerful buffs and deal damaged with excellent accuracy. 

Projectiles

All projectiles have a max range of two from the get-go, some classes many have attributes that modify this to their specialization. Kunai still work as de-buffers but will also receive a new feature, the "set trap" command which can be used on various surfaces to incapacitate, debilitate or eliminate foes.

Guns are a new weapon that will be in early stage of development in the story line. Not many classes will wield this weapon as it will be specifically implemented as a siege weapon; Cannons. The application of airships is also something to consider. Considering allowing it's range to be in cardinal directions, only impeded by trees, walls, etc.

Bows will have more variety between those that have  a 1-2 and a 1-3 range which I hope will redeem archers. Otherwise no changes.

 

   Magic Effects

Primal: All characters will have access to this in some form or the other whether it be a mount or a beast stone to transform into a creature, dragon, taguel etc. There will not be many major stat boost when it comes to mounts as i feel the extra move and weaknesses will be enough of a trade off. This will require more discussion. Mounts I have in mind are: Alicorns, Griffins, Dire Wolfs, Horse (of-course) and Rolling Calfs(Dark knight Only). 

Staves have been nerfed and buffed, many of the effects they used to have, have been handed off to wands,  however they will retain their healing and status relieving function (heal, physic, fortify, etc) and as a design choice will be mostly composed of wood and other living-esque materials to differentiate them from scepters. Range of most spells are not 1-2 except Recover. Staff users will have some attacks, mostly endgame and boss only  magic, based on the earth and water to manipulate terrain. Still researching this.

Wands, impose your will upon the flesh using blood magic. Use of wands drain the users health upon casting. Users will have access to spells such as: Warg(Control an enemy, cannot move during this), death(causes instant death, low accuracy, bosses immune),  sacrifice(heal an ally using your hp (conversion from hp lost to hp gained will be 1/2 higher.) etc.

Please leave comments and feedback, thank you.

*This is my first time using Photoshop pls excuse the choppy work.

please dont make fire emblem more complicated than it already is

I agree. There is absolutely no need to make the weapon system different from what it is currently, especially there appears to be little-to-no benefit to it. As the saying goes: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!".
