PostSubject: How to Create your Abilities (v 1.0)   Mon Feb 05, 2018 11:04 pm

Greetings,

If you are here, that means you probably want to know how to make abilities approval-worthy for the site. While your characters may have abilities as simple as a fire breath, just stating it as such is still not enough. We need to make sure that you can't constantly breathe fire 24/7, have a range of half the world or have fire hot enough to decompose diamond. And to do that, we will need some information about your character abilities. This guide will help give you at least the bare minimum on what is expected in an ability app before it will meet our approval standards. But if you want to learn how to make more ellaborate abilities that may be difficult to pass, feel free to open up any spoiler tags you may encounter along the way, as they will contain useful tips.

Now let's get to it!

Guide to making an ability


Name.

Name of your ability. Simple. You can go with a generic name or something fancier, but nothing too complex.

Description

Describe what your ability does. Give as much detail as you can on what effects it will have on other dragons or objects as well. Limitations of your ability must be added here, and the limitation + weakness must reflect the potency of your ability. For example, a fire ball may take up very little energy, but breathing a wall of flame may be even more exhausting and leave your character with fatigue. Duration of any positive and negative effects of your ability (if any) are to be done in posts, not in seconds or minutes.

Tip:
 

Cooldown

How long must your character wait before they can recast the same ability again? Remember, they have to be in posts. A good tip to making a reasonable cooldown is, the stronger the ability, the longer the cooldown.

Range

How far can your character's ability reach its target before dissipating? Unit of measurement should be in feet.

Weaknesses

How do you counter this ability? What is your ability weak against? This is different to limitations. Remember, the potency of your limitations + weaknesses must reflect the potency of your ability strengths.

Tips:
