Grappler Class Reveal

16 likes

Hey everyone, hope you all had a great weekend! Yesterday we hit 75% funding and are 3/4 of the way there with more than half of the campaign still yet to come! Your support has been incredible, so thank you again. As mentioned on the weekend, you’ve unlocked the first Social Reward by reaching 4 Social Goals, so without further delay, we present to you the Grappler class:

Grapplers thrive in close quarters combat where their fists, mind & reflexes are both a shield and a weapon. While wearing only cloth armor can leave them somewhat vulnerable, they are masters at blocking and countering attacks, and when wounded can slip into a meditative trance to heal themselves.

Here are a few abilities that the Grappler possesses:

  • Crippling Force: The Grappler cuts through the air with his fist and hurls a shockwave towards his target, damaging and stunning them for 1 round
  • Three-Fisted Fury: The Grappler dashes forward towards his target and lands 3 lightning quick strikes. If the target dies during the assault, the Grappler dashes to the nearest enemy within range and repeats the ability.
  • Hurricane: The Grappler delivers a powerful roundhouse kick to the target, damaging and knocking them back 2 cells. Any enemies caught in the knockback are displaced and suffer damage.

We hope you like his look, and of course if you have any thoughts or just want to discuss the class further, we encourage you to leave a comment! With that out of the way, we’re now only a few Social Goals away from unlocking the next reward which is alternate skins for each class. Here’s a little preview of what that will look like!

Before going we’d like to once again tell you about another awesome game here on Kickstarter: Maelstrom. Its fast-paced naval combat caught our attention when browsing through Kickstarter, and we highly suggest that you check out their campaign page HERE.

Grim fantasy and magic combine with thunderous naval combat in a vibrant, monster-saturated world!

      If you want to try a different name than Monk you can try one of these names.

      Holy Striker, Divine Fist, Saint Fist, Soul Fist, Anointed Fighter, Chi Master, Blessed Fighter, Acolyte, Cenobite, or Sacred Hand.

      @Christopher That's always an option too :) Personally I always love monk classes(and the name) but I guess we just wanted to try something different. Though like you said, we already have a Paladin class so it's not a huge deal if we end up calling him a Monk I suppose!

      I think going with the cliche "Monk" title might please DnD (and other fantasy game) fans. Much like you have the Paladin class. You dont want to name him Holy Swordsman.

      Ya he is a fighter/monk. We're definitely not attached to the name either because as you say it's not quite reflective of what he does(we were actually talking about other possible names while I was typing out the update heh). Certainly open to other ideas :)

      While I don't hate the name Grappler, the name makes me think of a pro-wrestler type. Grapplers tend to try to knock someone to the ground and then use a submission hold. This character looks like he focuses on punches which would make him more of a Striker. Strikers typically focus on kicks and punches. He also looks like he could be a Monk since he can meditate to heal.

      Ya we didn't want to go and list all the abilities in the first class update as it would have ended up extremely long. Since this was a shorter and more focused update it felt more appropriate to give you a little more insight into his abilities :)

      For some unknown reason I like this update's character skill description layout better.
