Combat Drone Traits (placeholder name)

Post  Xel Unknown on Fri Aug 23, 2013 5:28 pm

I've been having this idea for a trait list where you pick between different options to summon a minion that gives the PC a passive effect (or can only do a reaction or innterrupt talent) in combat of some type that stays in effect as long as the Minion is alive in combat. But I can't seem to get any more ideas other then the following.



Shield Drone - 1 HP
[0] Meatshield Command - Interrupt Utility
Trigger – An ally is targeted by an attack.
Effect - The triggering attack hits the Shield Drone's Conjurerer instead.


&

Attack Drone - 1 HP
Trait - Combat Powerboost
The Conjurerer of the Attack Drone has a +2 to damage as long as the Drone is alive in combat.


Yeah that's the most I was able to think up on my own so far. And I'm unsure if to build these to be appearing only once at the start of battle... Or if this could get by as some type of talent to summon only one o these "combat drones" into battle when they get destroied or stuff. What are people's thoughts on this trait consecpt?

I think it's an interesting idea. It definitely needs some balance, but it could be pretty cool. Also:

Healing Drone - 1 HP
Trait - Patch Up
The Conjurerer of the Healing Drone has Regeneration 2 as long as the Drone is alive in combat.

Funnily enough I had a very similar idea. I had the following mental baseline...

[-1] Conjure X - Minor Utility
You summon an X. X has the following stat block.
X - 1HP
Trait - Equipment
When you conjure X, select yourself or an ally. X becomes a Piece of Equipment for them. Pieces of Equipment can't be directly attacked. Whenever an ally with Equipment on them takes 5 or more damage in a single attack, a random Piece of Equipment they have is destroyed.
*Whatever Else X Does Goes Here*

Obviously if I put more effort into it, it wouldn't be a summon and would have its own rules and whatnot that'd be in my combat expansion...

Why is it a minor action? Because I continue the search to make a Minor Action Summon and my current creation, Fortification, is totally OP but no one will admit it or stop my paranoia...
