Terrain/Land?

I respond with an area effect from chiron quest

There are a few different area effects this was just the first one that came to mind to show.


If this thread picks up in popularity I may be able to show what a "full inventory" looks like as cromartie requested

Hello The Black Road members,
I'm going to be starting up a new spoiler thread which I will be trying to involve you in shortly. This week is a very small teaser of a new spell will be attached below:


This is hopefully just going to be the first of many spoilers coming on what should be a weekly basis. Look for a poll soon where you can vote on what type of spoiler you would like to see next. In order for me to continue doing spoilers though I would like to see some serious interest in this so send your friends and get them to vote for what you want to see.

As with all spoiler threads anything I post in here is subject to change, whether it be a small balance change and or the spoilered item/spell is deemed to not fit in with the vision for the map.

Well here's a picture of a new item that drops from one of the lower level bosses, I should have mentioned before the items are one of the more likely concepts to get tweaked a bit before release but the general idea should be the same behind them.

Now unfortunately I will be going away soon so there will either be a lack of spoilers while I'm gone or perhaps someone else will take over I should be able to get the next one up and I'll be throwing a new poll up for it soon.
Gladiator's Fists, Dec 15th

Hijacking exo's thread, but here is one of the Legendary items as promised!

This item in particular shows off one of the new item mechanics "Bleed", and I'll leave that to you guys to "imagine" what it is (I think there might be hints of it in the old spoiler thread). Also this item is crafted at one of the forges throughout the map!

"The ruins at the Minotaur Mountains have to be there for a reason right?"

Magi's Oath, Dec 22nd
Quote from: Av3n
Hijacking exo's thread, but here is one of the God Passives!

These "God Passives" replace the "God Items" in the map and fit as an extra ability for your hero class. There are five other God Passives in-game, each with unique effects which cater towards the different roles of the hero classes.

Atlas' Fight, Dec 25th
Quote
Firstly it is Christmas on my side of the world and arriving shortly for everyone else! Which means celebrations for the day with the family or your friends or your loved ones or all of the above! Anyways our Christmas present to you is a video of the new Atlas fight!

[youtube=http://youtu.be/d_i2mKi8yBs][/youtube]

We managed to live through and avoid his special ability. As you can see, AoE is essential for the fight in order to take out those rocks and it doesn't help that Atlas will slow down your movements as well.
We still got a decent amount of content to finish off and the map is finally entering the balancing phase as well. I'll like to aim high but we all know what happened last time.

Chimera's Fire, 4th Jan
Quote from: exodium

This is what I chose it's a picture of Chimera me and Slight are fighting it showing off our heroes and showing you how chimera fires fire in different designs now

The new poll is up with 7 different options corresponding to the red numbers above the buffs on the current spoiler I'll do the top 1 this week and maybe the 2nd the weak after if people like this?

(Forgot to put if you like dislike this 7 option concept let me know so I know whether or not to repeat it?)
Options 4 and 7,Jan 11th
Quote from: exodium
So the poll options spoiler is still here as it will be reused for this weeks poll with the 2 winners of last week having been taken out since there was a tie I and frogs figured we would give you both don't expect the same if you tie it next week :P

Option 4

This is Ares god passive the numbers on this one are still very much influx it's the "lifesteal" type item we currently have which may be changing but it was the top vote so I had to post it

Option 7

This is Phalanx it definitely makes SW tankier and trust me even he needs that in some fights.

Shimmering, Feb 11th
Quote from: exodium
Gonna leave it in this post atm not sure if I will be coming up with a new poll soon I'll wait on reactions to this post I guess we're doing a bit of item changes atm so a lot of the numbers on them are very very tentative.




These 2 pictures show what was involved in option 1's giving you that buff at the bottom I don't want to go into much more detail but yes there are other item sets

Since most of our testers' have come to a mutual agreement with using a spoiler series, I'm afraid I can't post as much information as I like.

But I can talk about why The Black Road is still around after how many years and how I ended up on the project :P. I don't know much about the 1st generation, but only to know that TBR became widely played during that time by the original developer WaterMolecule/PwnCakeRofls.
I think I would of been offered a position into the project through word of mouth if I remember correctly, this would of been around the 2nd generation of the clan (2007/2008). This would of been around when TBR was still based in US.East and there were no hostbots around. The terrainer for the 2.xx series FatherTime was head of the clan at the time, eventually 2.xx was released and even though it is still full of bugs/imbalances people still played it.
Come around the 3rd generation of the clan where we went global across US.West/US.East/Europe, we had hostbots etc. this would of been around the time people started playing 1.xx again due to problems with 2.xx. Since FT disappeared around this time, leaving the reins to the slowly dying US.East sector. The reins will eventually be given to the US.West sector come 4th generation (which was around the period I disappeared).
I as the only "active" developer would pass down the 1.xx series to other members of the clan who would see the map becoming more stable in the years to come. This was also around the time I decided to start coding 2.1 (which is still in the making come now due to me disappearing). By the time I completely disappeared a generation of the clan has passed and I've time traveled to the 5th generation.
I'm still glad that some of my testers' have held onto hope, but many have moved on and the 1.xx coder went AWOL. Although TBR ain't in its heyday, we still managed to have our hostbots still operating and forums by a fellow clan member who is potentially the next Head Chieftain for the next generation. Now 2.1 is being coded again after a 1.5 year (?) disappearance by me, finishing up the content left and doing the final balancing work for the next public release.

Good job there. I haven't tried TBR yet, but theres a big possibility, since mythology games are something I find interesting.

If you need any idea-based help, im here, and would be more than glad to help.

I think one of the testers posted something on the mothership recently. I'll probably post that here when I get the time.

 

Do you like the new spoiler??
