• Static - poor range, good speed, good damage.
Chance of paralysing targets. Amplifies the range of nearby static towers.

• Frost - fair range, fair speed, good damage.
Chance of freezing targets for 5 seconds. Frozen pests take 50% more damage.

• Poison - poor range, good speed, good damage.
Chance of poisoning (+) targets.

• Shroud1 - area of effect; fair range.

• Mind - area of effect; average range.
Reveals Sneakers and other cloacked pests.

• Chaos - area of effect; average range.
Chance of confusing pests.

• Death - area of effect; poor range.
Chance of ressurecting falling pests as allied NPCs.

• Blood2 - area of effect; poor range.
Quadruples the life-point recovery rate.

• Body1 - area of effect; fair range.
Increases the combat stats of players by 10%, and allied NPCs by 20%.

• Nature - triggered effect.

• Cosmic - area of effect, poor range.
Quaruples the heartstone charge rate.

• Law - teleportation.
Law towers teleport players to other, random law towers.
Afflications and conditions;
• BLIND targets are non-aggressive (won't attack first).
• BURN afflicts periodically, inflicting damage (at an increasing rate).
• CLOAKED targets cannot be selected as targets by most towers.
• CONFUSED targets will attack both pests and allies.
• FROZEN targets cannot move.
• PARALYSIS afflicts periodically, lasting 2-3 seconds. Paralysed targets take damage as they move - NPCs won't move, so it acts as a bind. Movement commands are canceled when the paralysis splashes (so's to be fair).
• POISON afflicts periodically, inflicting damage (at a decreasing rate).

1) Each player may only set-up a single of these towers.
2) Doesn't stack with other nearby towers of the same effect.


At each the tents, monastery, port-town and watchtower is a stockpile of black-marble coloured obelisks. Take as many as you can carry (remember to leave room for other provisions if needed).

Obelisks can be set-up with a minimum of one-space between each other in a similar fashion to barricades at Castle Wars - drop! Duh-dah! Upon dropping you will given the option to charge the obelisk - display a list of the 16 available towers. If you wish not to charge the obelisk, select no. To charge an uncharged obelisk, use your heart stone on it.

Each tower requires a different amount of charge (which is stored in the heartstone). It will slowly charge by itself, but using Cosmic Altars will drastically increase this speed. The heartstone can also be used to repair towers as they take damage - but you cannot attack whilst utilising the stone.

Each of the basic elemental towers can be upgraded twice to increase damage and range.

Even a solid wall of towers isn't necessarily immune - a large wave of brawlers could easily plough through if the towers are weighted correctly.

If all good things come to an end then we're living in a world where evil wins. 

If there once was love then maybe something survived. If we find a single diamond in the rough then it's worth it. Through a thousand tears if there's one drop of love then it's worth it.

What about my ideas? We need an astral tower as well btw. I'm thinking horrible recharge rate, good range and insane damage. Like Pk Starstorm from Earthbound (and Super Smash Bros. Brawl).

I wasn't too sure about the lava one. Tongue

And I wasn't sure if "astral" is mainstream enough. Wink

I've put Astral! I can't remember what game I'm thinking of... one of the Red Alerts I think. It's like an electric tower that gets more powerful the more towers its connected to. So having clusters of them = lots of damage from each! Grin

So far....


Grin Pest Control: Tower Defence!
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Pest Control: Tower Defence (known simply as PC2, or TD) is a co-operative members-only activity. Players must hold off hordes of pests for as long as possible, while at the same time trying to keep their strategic points up and functional. The activity is played in aid of the Void Knights - whose aim is to quench the influx of monsters. Please note that this is a "Safe" activity. If you die, you will keep your items (although you will lose any activity items you may have gathered - such as bandages). Players will be shown a respawn interface detailing any available respawn points in addition to leaving the current game. Life points, prayer points, the special attack bar, and run energy are restored for the beginning of each game. The minigame has a single lander, however the player a "Veto flag" which allows them to set preferences for game type.

*´¨)
¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
(¸.°´ (¸.•´•.¸¸.•´Ż`•._.•

Requirements
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Skills.
The only requirement to participate in a game of Tower Defence is to have a combat level of 40 or above (the minimum required level to board the lander). The Intermediate difficult requires a minimum combat level of 70, and to join a Veteran game a player must have a combat level of 100 or higher. As with Pest Control, it's likely that players will advertise high-levelled worlds to their fellow players in the hope to win a higher percentage of games in a shorter amount of time. However, the veto flag was design to remove the need for this as well as allowing casual gamers to just 'get on with it'.

Participation.
In order to receive commendation points, a player must acquire 1000 Zeal. This is acquired by inflicting 1000 damage - either in direct combat, or through the towers. Zeal can also be acquired by supporting your allies - by healing, teleporting, etc. Some towers, such as the Nature Tower, are unable to earn Zeal.

Players.
A game of Tower Defence can be played by 5 up to 100 players. Multiples games may be played at once by many groups. Anyone who wishes to play must board the lander. If the lander fills with 25 players, the game will begin automatically. Otherwise, players must wait 5 minutes for the game to begin. Players will be added to existing games until they are full. Players preferences set on the veto flag will affect the games they will be added to.

Restrictions.
Pets and the Dwarven Multicannon are not allowed on the island. Familiars may not be used during the minigame.

Location.
To start playing Tower Defence, you must go to the Void Knights' Outpost.

*´¨)
¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
(¸.°´ (¸.•´•.¸¸.•´Ż`•._.•

The Outpost
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The Outpost would remain mostly unchanged by the inclusion of the new activity. The locations of the Bank and Anvil would be switched, with entrances to the bank being west and south. The wall surrounding the south-western side of the island would be removed (north as far as the existing location of the anvil). A new, fourth 'lander' would be placed north of the Veteran lander.

The Veto Flag
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
The Veto Flag is an item that players are given upon boarding the lander - requiring a minimum of one free inventory space or wielding no weapon. It can be equipped or held in the inventory. The veto flag will be removed from the players possession should they exit the lander or enter a game - there is no way to take the veto flag from the lander.

Operating the veto flag will present an array of controls that a player may utilise to create their perfect game. Be advised that each option will limit the games you can join and may potentially restrict you from joining games with all the active players in that world. The veto flag will remember all previously selected options. The flag allows players to select their desired game type - which will affect the appearance of the flag - and opt for the game difficulty. The game types are Quickplay, Extermination, Warzone and Horde. The difficulties are Quickplay, Novice, Intermediate and Veteran.

There is an additional toggle labelled "Clan only". This will limit you to joining games with players who are in the same clan channel. For this game mode, only the clan leader's selected game-type will take precedence - however the difficulty is based on the lowest selected difficulty.

In the event everyone has quickplay set (for either or both options) they are randomly selected by the engine. For difficulty it's based on the lower quartile of the average combat level, whilst game type is entirely random.

*´¨)
¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
(¸.°´ (¸.•´•.¸¸.•´Ż`•._.•


Winning
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Winning a game of Tower Defence varies depending on game type.
• In Warzone players must hold the island for 30, 45 or 60 minutes from continuing waves of pests.
• In Horde players must hold the island for 50, 75 or 100 waves.
For these two types; losing happens when all four strategic points are destroyed before the end-game requirement.

• In Extermination players only have a single respawn and their total lifepoints is multiplied by 20, 10 or 5. To win they must hold the island for 10 minutes against a never-ending onslaught of pests. Once a player is defeated they have the option to spectate (as a ghost) or exit. In this mode, only the final strategic point and the wall stand between the pests and victory. You lose if all players are defeated, or the Pyramid of Life is destroyed.

You seem to have a habit of starting amazing ideas but either not finishing them or never posting them where they'll be scene! Although, I imagine some ideas are hard to explain without your picture assets.
