    Era of Ninja is a new type of custom map, currently a WIP
    Era of Ninja puts the Shogun on a Ninja clan's hit list, but will they last the night defended by the noble Samurai? or will the Ninja score big bucks on their bounty?

    Aim~
    EoN requires a team of 6 ninja to assassinate the 5 Shogun before daybreak, whilst the opposing 6 Samurai must stop them.

    Features~
    -Fight with a one hit kill battle system, using a variety of evasive abilities to stay alive.
    -Play as a Samurai if you prefer to rush through your enemies cutting limbs off left and right, the power house of the melee combat world. Nothing can stand up to the Samurai's sword techniques.
    -Try out a Ninja if you'd rather decieve your enemy - have them believe theyre chasing you when really, you're chasing them. An experienced Ninja can massacre an entire village without even the residents knowing.
    -A huge array of Ninja equipment is at your disposal! Use the gold you've been hired with to buy smoke bombs, flash bombs, caltrops, shuriken, kunai, blowguns, darts, poisons and more!
    -Attune to up to two of four elements to learn havock reaking spells at the cost of your not-so-large mana pool.

    Man, this maps looks promising.
    If you balance it well, this feature: " Fight with a one hit kill battle system, using a variety of evasive abilities to stay alive." will make the game very intersting.

    Very nice idea for your map ;p.
    I like the terrain, it complements the theme of the map very well and it helps with stealth.

    Some ideas for your map
    -give ninjas a disguise ability to dress as a samurai to get inside the base
    -leave spike traps on the ground that slow or stop units that walk on them

    xD i found the ninja

    Thanks, i was originally going to have ninja and kunoichi, and the kunoichi could disguise themselves and the ninja would have some other trick but im not going to add this in v.1, maybe later. But there will be caltrops (thrown on the floor and has 4 spikes so that one is always pointing up) which slow enemies that walk on them.

    theres alot of issues with making a disguise though, if there was a trigger that could change model file it would be easy ^^ once version 1 is released i will consider it, as i was planning it originally anyway, but later versions of this game will add things like kunoichi to the ninja side, and eventually several ninja characters to choose from, aswell more samurai to choose on the samurai team aswell, but i want to keep it simpler to start, make sure its balanced, make sure everything works etc.

    Impressive! I really liked the concept of your map!
    Whatever help you may need I'll try to do my best to help you, such an idea must only turn out a funny and quality game and must not be forgotten.
    I'm going to check the skills' list right now, I'll try to give you some ideas. ;)

    EoN progress has slowed as of late as i a have much coursework etc. hopefully be speeding up again a little bit over christmas but it will inevitably slow down again due to exams etc. could be a long time before i can relase this.

    hey guys :) actually doing some work on the map right now.

    @Lukas: as cool as silent killing is, it would be very hard to make a game entirely based on it, BUT it is possible for a ninja player to get into a samurai base and take out their shogun without any guards or samurais noticing, so yea its part of the game, but it doesnt revolve around it ^^ and sry but no 3rd person camera, once the games out i hope you will be able to see why that wouldnt work so well :p

    @Arusar: depends how much killing you do :3

    @Blaxor: think you're the second to atleast say they've found the ninja, so i will now bother to post a new picture, and i will point out the ninja on the previous so you can check if you really did find him! :p

    @arphax214: Are you talking about having multiple game modes or extra side-quest type things to do within a single game mode? Because im not sure about having side-quest like stuff to do as the ninjas have a time limit to take out the shoguns... so its not good if the players get side tracked, however i will most likely include multiple game modes as time goes on, its a lot of work already, once it is released i will balance and then expand into... whatever, extra game modes, more items, more spells, more maps to fight on, a variety of different specialised samurai/ninja heroes.. who knows!

    EDIT: as of now the second Spot the Ninja! is up :p

    That would completely ruin the game.
