Hey everybody, I'm new here and I'd like to suggest something I didn't found using "Search", and that was suggested in the PT forums and everybody liked it. Robbing banks 1- Starting the rob On the West, there were lots of outlaws and bandits, and I believe this reflects in the Dueler class. They robbed banks, and this could be a good deal. Something new that could be implemented in the game is robbing banks. To start a rob, a significant level player (around level 50) would start a rob by renting a house in a city. This would be done by paying about $1,000 (those would be added to the town treasury). Once the house is rented, the player that rented the house can invite other players to rob the bank with him. There are 5 player types (including the leader), so only 5 man can rob a bank. When all members have done buying their equipment (see after), the leader can start the rob, and then, 12 hours after all the robbers must reunite in the targeted town (choosen by the leader), and when the 12 hours end, if every robber is there, the rob starts. If not, the rob fails and any invested money is lost. The targeted town doesn't get knowing of the rob, and only present soldiers during the rob can defend the town. How the town is defended, we see below. The rob will take about 1 hour. 2 - The reward The money earned is about how succesful the rob was. It can vary from 1% to 50% of the targeted's town treasury plus 1% to 50% to the town member's bank account. Experience is the money won divided by 8. Luck, is the sum of all shop buildings, multiplied by 2.8 A complete town has 100% luck then. If you find anything in the rob, some lucky member will get it too. This will open ways to get those rare items like Jesse's Schofield. Also, if someone find an item, 70% of its value is added to the total rob value, giving a total of 17,5% of the value of the item per robber. This will make earning more money, and that money won't be took from the Treasury! Of course, all this if they don't get caught... After the rob, you receive a report, just like a fort battle or a job. If we rob Springfield's bank, we shall receive a report just like that: 3- The equipment and the members Each player will occupate one of the 5 total positions in the rob, each one needs to buy different equipment so the rob goes well. Member 1: Leader The leader is the one who rented the house. He can get products from jobs to increase the chances, as all others. When most items he gets, more the chances. It is better to have 3 of each item than 10 from only 1 item. The items are: Map (from Exploration) - Map of the bank to discover where the vault is. Documents (from Firefighter) - Information about the bank, like guards. Pocket Watch (from Robbing settlers) - To watch the time. The chance of all other members doing well their job is calculated by the leader's Leadership skill. Member 2: Burglar The burglar is the one who will pick the door lock, making the team enter the bank safely and silently. If this guy's equipment fails, the rob automatically fails and no one gets no money or experience points. The equipment are: Barbed Wire (from Installing fence) - To make the pick, barbed wire is good. Paperclips didn't existed in this time. Roll with Wire (from Setting up poles) - If the barbed wire ends, it's good to have extra. Tool Box (from Building Wind Mills) - To make the tension wrench. Also, the hability used by this members is Fine Motor Skills Member 3: Explosives dude This guy is the one who will plant some bombs near the bank's vault, opening it and allowing the team to take the money. If his equipment fails, the team don't get money, but gets experience (for what they've done). Nails (from Building a Ranch House) - I don't know why. Maybe he must stake the bomb in something. Cigars (from Trading with Indians) - To trigger the dynamite Dynamite (from Transporting Ammunition) - I don't need to say, right? Hability used: Tactics If the Tactics is low, he may not plant the bomb well and hurt any of the members. Member 4: Gunslinger The gunslinger is the one who understand about bullets and weapons. He will buy bullets for the member's weapons. His equipment only will get used if they get caught, increasing the damage (more equipment, more increase). Horn of a cow (from Branding Cattle) - Store the powder Smuggle goods (from Smuggling/Chasing bandits) - You never know what you'll find in those boxes Rounds (from Guarding the Stage) - What you'll shoot Hability used: Shoting Member 5: Escape dude The escape dude is a dude (or a girl... ) which understand a much of horses, and will providenciate horsy things. More equipment, more bonus in the Horseback Riding ability when they try to escape. Saddle (from Breaking in/Stealing Horses) - To ride the horses Horseshoe (from Shoeing horses) - So the horses can ride Train Ticket (from Building train station) - To get in the train station and run away fast. Hability used: Horseback riding 4- Protection against robs To protect the bank, you can level up a new add to the bank: The safe. Each level of the safe lowers the total money that can be won and the chances of the robbers being caught. Level 1: Maximum Money is 35% Level 2: Maximum Money is 25%; Soldiers receive 10% bonus of Stamina Level 3: Maximum Money is 15%; Soldiers receive 25% bonus of Stamina 5- The escape If everyone is good enough and don't get caught, they escape and get back to the planning town, the time is definited by the horse the escape dude bought. Your part of the crime is recieved instantly after the succesful rob. But, what the hell will you tell to your wife? I imagine the discussion "how did you got all that money!?" "er... I won in lottery". Ok but let's don't get out of the real point. You may ask yourself now: And If I get caught? This takes us to our next part... 6- Getting caught & combat Only present soldiers during the rob can defend the town. But they may not find you. This will be a comparison by the sum of the present's soldier Stamina skill and the robber's Hiding skill. If the robber's skill is bigger, they don't get caught. If the soldier's skill is bigger, then the things may get complicated... Getting caught is a shotout: The robbers vs. the present soldiers. Everybody shots everybody (except teammates, of course), and the chance of hitting/not being hit is calculated by Aim and Dodgind skills. The damage robbers inflict in soldiers is a random number of their dueling weapon, but it changes with the equipment the Gunslinger got. The Gunslinger needs at least 3 items to have a bonus of 20%. Each item is a bonus of 5% more. The damage soldiers inflict on robbers is just what their weapon can inflict. The soldiers keep fighting until the some of their total HP is in 30%, then the robbers can escape. The robbers keep fighting until the sum of their total HP is in 50%, then they try to escape. If they can escape or not is a comparison between the robber's and soldier's Horseback riding skill. If robber's have the bigger, they escape, if not, they get arrested (see below). Altought, the robber's Horseback riding skill can be improved by the equipment the Escape Guy got. It needs at least 3 items to give a 20% bonus. Each other item gives a 5% bonus. If, by the end, the soldier's win. All robbers pass out, losing the money in their hands and the horse. The soldiers win the same Experience Points the robbers would (if each robber carried $4,720 each soldier will recieve 1/15 of that, in case, 315) 6- The end I edited it. This thing will lead to complete new pure builds and events to the game, also opening ways to finding hard items, and to small towns rob big towns, avoiding battle. Another thing to towns to do with each other. I'll ask to be voted.
