Gangs of Rome Dev Diary 5:
The Jigsaw Base
Each ‘Gangs of Rome’ fighter you receive will come packaged with our brand new custom “Jigsaw Base”.
The Jigsaw base earns its name from the small acrylic numeric tokens that fit smoothly into the two semi-circle notches at the rear.…
Pressed in, just as you would a Jigsaw piece, the small record tokens are designed to travel with the base comfortably with no chance of the falling out.
Extended slightly over the edge for ease of removal, the bright and robust acrylic tokens, clearly designate both the fighters ID number and their current “Flesh” total, which starts high and slowly reduces as the fighter takes injuries.
More than just a vehicle for Gangs of Rome, the Jigsaw base and variations thereof, will likely see quite a lot of use in our future titles to come and we hope it will become as iconic as the worlds we create.
Gangs of Rome Dev Diary No 6:
BLOOD & BRAWL.
In the Gangs Of Rome game when it comes to facing off sandal to sandal, there are two very distinct styles of hand to hand combat when either making a direct attack or REPLYING to a direct attack.
These are Blood and Brawl styles, and here we will look at the differences.
GoR Combat hint.
BLOOD style combat effects an opposing fighters flesh.
BRAWL style combat effects an opposing fighters position on the field.
OUT FOR BLOOD…
Blood style combat is the “default” combat style in all Gangs of Rome’s hand to hand combat.
Unless a fighter states otherwise before rolling attack dice, we assume that any attack made in hand to hand is in the blood style.
Blood style attacks focus on potentially causing the most amount of damage to an opposing fighters “flesh” total.
Damage to a fighter’s flesh score will go on to reduce their movement and agility.
The number of attacks and the way they charge an enemy will remain fixed throughout the game, however, as any fighter facing their imminent death will find the strength to engage a nearby enemy and give it all they possibly can.
BRAWLING FOR POSITION.
Before rolling dice to attack while engaged in hand to hand, a player must declare they will be using a Brawl style attack if that is their intent.
Brawl style attacks are not repelled using opposing fighters defence, escaping a Brawl attack is directly related to fighters current Agility, which in turn corresponds to how much damage a gang member may already have suffered to their Flesh total.
Simply put, the weaker a fighter becomes, the more likely they are to lose a brawl style encounter and be pushed or thrown from their current base to base position with their foe.
This forced movement can have various effects from mild to catastrophic depending on the terrain surrounding the melee itself.
First and foremost, what a successful brawl first achieves, is the separation of fighters.
A more significant risk to the thrown fighter, however, is what surrounds them when this “forced separation” occurs.
Being thrown into a solid wall, cart, or cluster of sharp pottery shards, would be the least of their problems.
What about being thrown off the high roof of a building to the hard cobblestone streets below?
What about being thrown into the boiling lava of Vesuvius as chunks of the great city of Pompeii drift on a burning ocean of disaster?
What about being thrown into a wall of spikes in some back alley Gladiator pit?
