CivCraft's Stealth Mechanism
A little more than a week from our campaign launch, and we're over 120% funded with 27 days to go! As we're aiming for higher stretch goals and more features, we've put together a small demo of our Stealth Mechanism, which will be available when we'll reach our next stretch goal.
So here it is (Please wait for the animated GIF)
Whenever you are in a dangerous area, you may enter a "Sneak mode" and try to evade your enemies. The sneak mode is affected by your skills, so the higher perception your enemies will have, the harder it will be to sneak past them.
Stealth is not a simple thing to master, as you will have to use your surroundings with great care. To successfully pass through entire armies towards your target, you will have to consider the following:
- What you wear will greatly affect your stealth
- Moving while in stealth mode will make noise
- Moving in the shadows or darkness will boost your evasion
- Hiding behind obstacles and foliage will hide you from most enemies
- Some creatures has a keen sense of smell
But that's not all you can do, as a true stealth master will go where his enemies will never expect!
Another cool feature we've been working on is the ability to climb walls and obstacles. Depending on your climbing skill, a master of evasion will scale through walls, evade guards, open the gate and let an entire army pass through.
Through Ellaria, you will find treasures hidden in canyons and elevated locations, which will reward you or your heroes with loot that others could not find. A most successful adventurer will always learn the skill of climbing, or employ a hero who does.
That's it for today. Next updates will include some information about hiring spies and their abilities.
In the meanwhile, stay tuned and keep spreading the word!
