Bow 0 skill 0.6 damage per ap (dwarf 0.48, elf 0.72)

Bow 1 skill 0.9 damage per ap (dwarf 0.78, elf 1.02)

The purpose of this little game

It showcases a lot of features, especially if we later add some basic mods to complement it (extra tiles, an extra npc or item, maybe another skill.

If this idea is approved I will spend some more time on the maths and balance (this is just a rough idea). We have an artist who can do icons and tiles.

In Depth Specification

Database Tables (Inventory)

Table : Items

ItemId : int (key)

ItemName : str(26)

NumData : intarray

StrData : strarray

Type : str(>10)

Core : boolean (Not used in BRPG at the moment)

Table : Inventory

CharID : int (complexkey)

ItemID : int (complexkey)

Quantity : int

Inventory Display

[Attack] <DropdownTarget> with <DropdownWeapons>

[Use] <DropdownUsables> on <DropdownTarget>


Inventory Generation


Lookup CharID in inventory table and return matching item numbers and Quantity

For each item number returned

 if type=weapon then add itemId to DropDownWeapons (hidden) and print ItemName
 if type=usable then add itemId to DropdownUsables (hidden) and print ItemName
 add ItemName to InventoryList + "x" + Quantity

end for loop

Point of clarity : When adding items to the dropdown lists a similar method to shartak might be best (the itemId is needed to get the item type from the database for actions, the name is for the end user to see what they are using!)
