    Well I know triggering and if you try to do the rune that I said, you will have to fight with a lotsof if/then/else multiple actions and such. Mostly the actions part will be the hardest I bet. Anyway the idea itself comes from and old game called crystal caves! lol
    "I think that would mostly piss people off if they picked up that" exactly! Thats what the idea meant to be! If the person is unlucky enough to get that rune randomly I think, the poor player will have to deal with it for 10 seconds. ( IMO )

    That would be rough on new players, if it was me that got such in a completely new map I would probably end up leaving.

    And I am not the best triggerer so I don't want to alter my now working jassed walking method for something like this, sorry :)

    No walking distortions what so ever will be made.

    Damn, then perhaps you can make it move slower? And shake the screen as you said? And also put a screen word like YOU ARE SO DAMN DRUNK!!! lol like in sheep something that blizzard made. Also an orangish color might do it. What do you think?

    I won't display any text or make the unit move slower sorry. But I will shake and sway the screen + have different colors flash. I think there is allready something in Wc3 that does this so it should be an easy job, if I add it!

    Yes, that would be
    • Cinematic - Advanced fade filter


    You apply a filter of one color, and can change it another color.

    Weight rune

    Inflicts the user with a debuff which lasts 10 seconds, the debuff can move from player to player when they're tagged, and in the end of those 10 seconds, a large weight falls down from the sky and squishes the currently debuffed player. Tagging (Land Hugger into a pirate) is disabled during that debuff. (Crash Bash FTW!)

    Terrain Deformation Rune

    When picked up, a random part of the terrain sinks into the ocean.

    A rune that duplicates the picker maybe? It would be very confusing!

    Haha that weight rune sounds cool, but a bit hard to do perhaps, as people clash very often in games that is full house. If people walked paralel it would cause bugs perhaps?

    But really neat idea, I might do it, +rep!

    Hmm good idea but with the current movement system it will be hard to accomplish I think, well time will tell. Thanks for the idea, scyth.

    Rigged Decoy Rune:

    Toxic Gas Rune:
    Creates a quickly spreading toxic gas that slows all players effected by it for a short duration.
    Vortex Rune:

    Flyfoot Rune:

    None of those has been suggested before I think, if so I've forgotten them at least.

    Thanks for the suggestions donut3.5, that decoy rune is a nice idea, +rep.

    Devious Goblin's Rune of Divine Punishment:
    When you use this rune, it will make a land mine in your current position, that goes off when somebody of the opposite side (pirate mine = anti-Groundies, Groudies mine = anti-pirate) and kills them and anyone else that may be around them. If you are a ground hugger and your are killed by the mine, you will become a pirate.
    Just called Rune, so people will go WTF?!

    Disguising Rune:
    If you are a pirate, then you will look just like a ground hugger, and you will be able to trick your victims into hiding with you. If you are a ground hugger, you can avoid the pirates - because you are one!

    The goblin rune might be a good idea, thanks for the idea scyth, +rep.

    The other one has allready been suggested a few times more or less, I don't think I'll do such a rune :p

    Hmm maybe a rune called MARCH OF THE PIRATES! haha. Summoning 1 or more little pirate soul(s) around a random position in map for the picker with a damage of * you decide *. And a music plays during their cooldown. Maybe WC2's human songs can do it hmm song 2 or 3 they do fit well!. If these pirates die the march ends. Also during the march everypirate will have their movement speed increased by 15.

    Ok in a very simple way. There will be a rune called March of the Pirates. This will make a sound play which will fit in to the name like wc2's human song 2 or 3. Then, it will create 1 or more ghost pirate(s) to hunt ground huggers. They will last short actually and this rune will grant a buff of +15 movement speed bonus to every pirate player in the game due to that march gives them motivation. You get it now? :) ( Ghosts will appear at a random place in map and these will be under control of the picker.)
