Creating a sorceror as a mage "kit".
« on: October 23, 2004, 12:13:16 PM »
Well, this might seem a little strange for a request.

It came up when discussing how to make a thief/sorceror, though it could have been an anything/sorceror.

I understand that it's possible to do through converting all the spells to innates, et cetera (I'm not a fan of doing this - it would "look" too different to all the other sorceror stuff.)

Is it actually possible to gain the sorceror style spellbook, and effectively *be* a thief/sorceror, with spells used through the divine button as a normal sorceror would?

In our discussion we were figuring that it might be possible via creating a mage kit, and having spells learned slightly differently?

Thanks for any help/ideas.

You could create an altered version of all spells for the 'sorcerer' and add a 'rest' effect to them, but you'd need a way to limit the number of spells cast from each level, which eludes me atm.
You could easily limit the total number of spells cast, by incrementing a local, and disabling the spell-cast button when it reaches a cut-off, but that would allow the 'sorcerer' to use 50 lvl 9 spells, rather than 5 lvl 1, 5 lvl 2, 5 lvl 3 etc...

You could set variables for each level.

Would using the variables require editing each spell? Or is there a way to track when level X spells are cast and decrease the global according to that?

Also, what kind of script would be necessary for learning spells?

You'd need to edit each spell.

As for learning spells, you could scribe a set of spells to the spellbook on level-ups via the CLAB files, or allow spell-learning via scrolls, or, offer a selection of spells to choose from with the Use 2DA opcode, and add the selected spells.
