Hello (mapsters?), recently I got into a new book series called "The Dresden Files".
The book series, for those of you who do not know, is a crime investigation series with a kick of magic.
In the series there is 2 worlds (basically), Reality and the Nevernever.
I was inspired by this book series to create a new Who's the killer map, where the killer is a demon from the Nevernever but has a human form on reality.
Now I never actually played Phase Killer from wc3, but I know enough about it that this should probably ring some bells.
Basically, what I really want to know (since I don't have wc3 anymore) is how much alike is my game to Phase Killer.
In my game there are 16 players, some players are randomized as magical beings that can switch from Reality to the Nevernever.
One of these players is the Demon killer. The rest of the players are normal people (like the SI team from The Dresden Files).
Now in the book series only some people know about the Nevernever, not all wizards can go there. So with that said some normal players can be randomized as wizards of different variations.
The normal players will either play melee based roles or one of the 4 magic roles: Exorcist, Necromancer, Thermataulogist, or Evocator (I think?).
In the Dresden files Thermatualogy is the magical ability to use peoples DNA to track their location via magic. Wizards who use Evocation use quick dangerous abilities like Fireball and stuff like that.
So here's the breakdown:
1 random Killer that can switch worlds.
5ish randomized Wizards with the ability to enter both worlds.
10ish randomized players that will have simple abilities like "Perform Exorcism", "sacrifice/raise dead", "Track", and "Fireball".
The killer will be able to disguise himself and his messages to confuse and trick the players.
each role will play an important part to tracking down the killer and taking him down before he gets too powerful.
That's the basic breakdown of the game. How alike is it compared to Phase Killer? Should I give Dark.Revenant credit for the idea so I don't look like a map thief? Or am I completely off and Phase Killer is nothing like what I mentioned?
