Dev Diary - Piecemeal's Workshop of Horrors


Recommended Posts

Not to be mistaken for the regular Clockshadows Column of the Devouring Hell-Council Outcast Consortium Freakaloks Legacy Family Club, who splintered from the Sky Clockshadows Column of the Devouring Hell-Council Outcast Consortium Freakaloks Legacy Family Club because they felt the jetpacks they were using were much too clunky and dangerous.

 

But really, I think we're supposed to be talking about the Lost Imperial Arach-Tsoo Sky Clocktroll Skullwork Freaklok Council in this thread, no?  At least if Glaci's guesstimate compilation is correct, any way.

 

Edit:   I just realized that @Patti has used "Freakalok" instead of "Freaklok."  Honestly . . . I think I kinda prefer it with the extra syllable.  Although, wouldn't it be "Freakilok?"

@Piecemeal . . . thoughts?

I must decline, on behalf of Freakilok sounding like an adult themed version of Goldilocks!

Oh I don't know, why wouldn't splinter factions have splinter factions? There could be an Arc called "The Spelling Bee" in a similar vein to Freaklympics...

 

(I was going to make another comment, but then I typed "Freakylok and the Three Tank Smashers" and realized my error 🙂 )

A Devoured Nemesis army in Eden, being opposed by the Nemesis Automatons whose fake bodies aren't mutated by the Will of the Earth!

The Devoured all have spiffy military caps!

It's most certainly NOT a Nemesis plot to transform Lord Nemesis into immortal goo!

Mua-ha-ha-ha! MINE IS AN EVIL LAUGH!

 

I had a breakthrough.

 

I thought maybe you could hear me from anywhere on the planet, laughing.

 

OR MAYBE IT'S ISSUE 27!

Problematically, the world of Praetoria was destroyed as you know it by the game's lore before sunset. The Hamidon has won, save for one single bastion of humanity left. If and when we go back, it'll be about closing up that story thread.

ANNND what about inserting a few extra missions in BEFORE it goes belly up?  I mean, it's impossible to do them all anyway outside of ouro, but a few more here and there peppered around would be interesting.

 

And giving Goldsiders access to the actual Last Bastion missions (simply by moving a door and having Six contact them via radio would also be sweet)*

 

*Yes, I know my having a level 50 Praetorian who never left is odd, let's not dwell on that.  (Abandon Praetoria?  COWARDS!)

I have now, finally, completed both arcs.

 

Holy heck they were amazing. Seriously, a level of quality equal to or greater than the late-game Paragon Studios offerings.

 

I beg you of this: Make the Freakloks and upgraded Vahzilok available for use in the AE, add them to the Newspaper/Radio missions, and let us enjoy the new hotness outside of those arcs.

 

Let us take what you created and make more content with it, because they're freaking COOL.

Exactly!  *cough* Along with all the other stuff missing from the AE 😄

We cannot confirm or deny these things as a possible future maybe with an elevated chance of likely. There might need to be more powers work done on them first, perhaps. A truly villainous dev, I would have been, if these enemies were hostile in their current state.

 

Don't even get me started on first revision Decaying Eidolons, which some would hit a blaster for 1500 damage at level 30.

 

AMBITION. IT'S A ROCKY ROAD UP THAT MOUNTAIN.

I finally got a chance to play the new Issue 27 arc and I LOVE what you've done. ^_^ Dr Buzzsaw and the Vaz are my absolute favs and it's AMAZING to see them get some higher level love! You really built on their personalities and gave them some more meat while drilling in on what made them so wonderful. 😄 And the tone and style of the writing is just perfect! It has the wacky fun and deranged ambition of all the best redside arcs, the sense that you're building something beautiful and horrible and gathering all your diabolical friends around to watch it go KA-BLOOSH. (The fact that the mission prompt literally calls them your friends made me so happy heheh.) I can't WAIT to see what you do next! ❤️❤️❤️

I'd run the Blueside arc a couple of times, but over the last while on Reunion the Hounds have been running a Bring Out Yer Dead weekly team where we play the Abandoned Ones. The chars who got stuck, unplayed, somewhere along the line. 

 

Last time we did the blueside arcs, this week the Red side. Absolutely loved it, although it is chaotic as hell. They're easily strong enough & unique enough to be new TFs. 

 

Also I can has Ickle PP as a pet? kthxbye.

Duly noted.

 

The next set of projected content will continue the story in a more manageable set of stories, culminating in (hopefully) a trial.
