New Years Art RPG Cross Over Challenge. Earn 50-100 XP, 7AP, 50 gold for participating. Now through Mar 10
Welcome to the fray!
Participants, please remember to follow this thread for notifications!
This is a closed, basic level alpha test of PaperDemon’s upcoming ARPG Battle system! If you’re interested in participating in ARPG alpha tests or have questions, please send a private message to Shyftlock. Please do not comment on this thread unless you were personally invited to the alpha test.
Over the next months, we will be implementing a battle system for you to use to pit your characters against a wild variety of denizens of the Paperverse. Here we will be testing attack power and player engagement. We want to make this mechanic as fun and interesting as possible,so feel free to hit us with comments and suggestions.
To thank you for your time in helping us test this battle, you will receive a gold reward that you will be able to use later to purchase equipment for your character.
For this test challenge, you will be using the character you submitted for the Character Creation Challenge. You will need to choose an element for your character to fight with.
Choosing an element for this battle does not lock you into that element, but you can only use one element for this battle so pick wisely. You can make this choice official later if you wish by participating in the Latent Element Challenge.
You have two types of attack that you can choose from and two potential boosts. Be sure to test out different combinations for different outcomes!
-Attack- Solo Element Attack: In a solo attack, your character will use their element to attack the miniboss.
-Attack- Duocast: To duocast, you will need to agree to team up with another player with a character of a different element and attack together. This might have an interesting effect on your elemental powers. Only one of the Duocasting players needs to submit the form, but it counts for both players’ attacks that day.
Duocasts available for this fight…
Water + Earth = ???
Fire + Sky = ???
-Boost- Art Bonus: To gain a significant bonus to your attack power, you may add a simple black and white sketch of your character fighting the miniboss (feel free to get creative with what the miniboss looks like, the avatar below is just a suggestion). Upload it to your gallery here on PaperDemon and use the thumb code to make it show up in your forum post. Each piece of art can only be used as a bonus once. You can make a new piece to add a bonus to any attack. To add an art bonus to a duocast, both characters fighting must feature in the art but only one piece needs to be submitted. It doesn’t need to be perfect, have some fun with it!
-Boost- Weakness: The miniboss is weak to certain types of attack. Be sure to try different things to discover what elements cause more damage!
All elements also have a Healing Support Ability, which you can use on yourself or a comrade if your health is getting too low. You may also add an art bonus to healing requests by drawing a simple black and white sketch of your character patching up themselves or another character.

The surface of the murky water shivers as you stare through the trees towards the swamp. Before you can decide what to do, a ragged beast with a slime slicked coat bursts out towards you. The thick trees and mud prevent you from escaping-- your only choice is to attack!
Weaknesses: Sky, Shadow, Lightning
Here is a list of players, their characters, their elements, and their HP. You can use this to help you pick who to Duocast with and see who might need Healing Support!

ReneeScarted - - Fire - 85/100 HP
SchwarzerAlptraum - - Water - 90/100 HP
