    Oh, now i got a better idea.
    ??? Rune
    When Landhuggers pick this Rune they will become mini and when Pirates pick it up they will become big!
    Just fix a name for it! :)

    Exactly Nudl.

    And thanks for the ideas people, everything will be taken into account when I begin work on the runes, currently I am too busy with other things prior to updating such things though.

    Doesnt that make him invulnerable?
    It would be better if he bounce flies.
    So he bounces once in awhile, so he atleast risks being caught!

    This does good things to Pirates, bad things to Ground Huggers.
    It's just named Rune, so people will get super confused

    If you want to get all nitty-gritty, you could add a rune that does a knockback effect or something.

    I still think the island is too small.

    Please take all terrain ideas to this thread: http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/showthread.php?t=40461

    I am all ears for suggestions about a new island formation!


    And yes, some rune with a knockback effect could work, but it would need to have some sort of theme, purpose or something, not just random flashing light and knockback :p

    Rune of The Curse
    Theres several differnt things it could do, dsepending on witch you want to do. The first one I thought was The curse of the sea monster, witch cuases a naga (or somthing) to come out of the water and eat you whole, and after 10 seconds (or whatever you want it to be) he gets barfed out. (Like kodo beasts can do) Or it could be sinking sand, but I dont know how youd do that one...

    Rune of the Storm
    Cuases a storm to brew up in the sea, creatind a tornado, witch sucks up pirates and land huggers.

    I'll post more if I think of any!

    The sucking up one wouldn't work because of... well... the whole point is the landhuggers staying away...

    Ooo! How about one that turns a pirate back into a landhugger, and vice versa?

    Of course, you would have to check to make sure there's more than one pirate so that it isn't redundant...

    That would be an easy check, just a quick if/then/else upon creation of a new rune, but yes that would be a good idea Pyritie, I think that will definetly be in at some point :)

    That relocation one might be cool, I remember I really liked that back in the day of playing Pass the Bomb.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    I got a very funny idea. A rune that makes you DRUNK! Makes whoever picks it up to change his control keys like if J is left and if you pick it up it becomes right, and so on! May be a yellowish rune could do it. Also a drunk effect over the head XXD. A name for the rune that I can think of now is Rune of Strong Beer!

    I think that would mostly piss people off if they picked up that, at least the changing of the controls which would also be WAY to much work. I might do some sort of drunk effect like swaying camera and changing of colors on the screen and such.

    We'll see, thanks for the idea, NoNZealot.
