Defender Chronicles 1.2 – Forbidden Forest and the new Potion System

Forbidden Forest
Tarnwood, the forbidden forest, is used to be the main gateway between the Empire and the land of the Elves. After the rise of the undead, however, the forest has fallen to the darkness. Many heroes have visited Tarnwood but none have been seen to return.

Before the departure of the General from Breewich, the white wizard Lozzenthell has divined a vision. The Wizard claimed to see an old sword, sings with incredible power. The sword has won many battles for its wielders and has slain many evils, but has been since forgotten by all. It is hidden somewhere in the realm and is now waiting to be found again. The General searched the realm and eventually recovered the legendary sword.

Lozzenthell insists that for the survival of the troops in Tarnwood, and for the good of the land, this event must come to pass.


Potion System
Once Tarnwood is defeated, a potion store will appear on the world map. This potion store will sell a variety of potions.



For 1.2, the store will be selling 2 types of potions:

1. Elixir of Forgetfulness
Reset hero’s skills and returns all points back to the hero.
Usage: immediate.
Side effect: hero may lose few levels.

2. Healing Potion
Instant heal for 750 health points.
Usage: deliver to a guild during quest.
Dosage: 5x

Possible new potion for 1.3: Beast Potion – feed your warriors with this and see them turn into something else

As you have noticed, in Defender Chronicles, each unit has its own distinct characteristic and artificial intelligence. They act independently. You don’t direct the units when and who to attack. Each unit, however, is consistent with their behaviors. And by learning their behaviors, you can then develop a strategy on how to use them effectively.

To stay faithful to its gameplay style, Defender Chronicles will employ a rather unique way for its potion system. You won’t be forcing a unit to drink a potion. Instead you give the unit the potion and the unit will keep it. It will be then up to the unit to decide when to use it.

We have, of course, implemented a good AI for the units so they will be smart enough to know when to use the potions and when to reserve them for later


More features in 1.2:
  • Level 2 Trade Shop Access.
  • Hero’s skill level is now limited to 50 (if your hero has passed this limit, you can still keep it like that but you won’t be able to increase the skill level again).
  • New in-game music (subject if they are done before 1.1 is approved).

New features in 1.1 (waiting for approval):
http://www.defenderchronicles.com/fo...php?topic=20.0

Defender Chronicles 1.2 will be submitted after 1.1 is approved. If this takes time, we’ll just keep adding more features into 1.2.

Note: Tarnwood will be the last map with forest theme. As we enter the Elf land, the following maps will have different theme. Let us know if you have preference of what kind of map theme that you would like to see next.

As always, if you have suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We’ll consider all good feedbacks. Thank everyone for all the supports!

If you like tower defense games at all, this game is definitely worth the asking price, especially with the added RPG elements. If you're like me and don't like tower defense games, there's a good chance you'll like this one anyway. I know I do

The whole "reset" option on the hero is quite intriguing. It took me a couple of reads to realize what was going on there, but I really like the concept.

You already asked that question before you took the potion, but I'll answer AGAIN It must be for people who put all their points in the wrong places and want to try a different balance.
