After working on this for the better part of a week on a whim, I'm proud to announce the RE:RN Battlechip tags, designed to spice up your posts, shorten your signatures, and make moderators' lives easier. These shorthand tags will allow you to enter a chip's name, and immediately pull its details from a database.
How to use: Insert a [chip=CHIPNAME] tag anywhere in your post or signature. You are not required to close it with a [/chip] tag, to reduce likelihood of error. You can also have optional add-on arguments at the end. The chip name is exactly case-sensitive, referring to the spelling that we have in our Battle Chip Lists. So, uh, it's DBLBeam1, not DBLBEAM1. :'D
[chip=CHIPNAME] will output a short summary of the chip in question, along with a colored name to indicate element, and corresponding chip icon.
MarkCannon1Damage: 70 + Seeking + Lock-on
Description: A highly accurate cannon whose automatic aiming system locks onto heat signatures and fires.
Special: Lock-on: Same effect as an automatic Take Aim.
Trader Rank: D: 70 + Seeking + Lock-on (Acc: A)
HeatDragon1Damage: 100 + Ground Attack + Medium Area Lava Terrain Change + Terrain Changer
Description: Summons an EarthDragon that attacks enemies as it glides across the ground. Changes terrain to Lava as it passes.
Special: Terrain Changer: Ceases attacking when the Terrain Change effect is completed (once 25% of the terrain is changed).
Trader Rank: D: 100 + Ground Attack + 25% Lava Terrain Change + Terrain Changer (Acc: C)
Arsenal1Damage: (40 Elec damage) + (10 Elec damage x 4 hits)
Description: Fires a large laser beam encircled by four smaller beams.
Trader Rank: D: (40 Elec damage) + (10 Elec damage x 4 hits) (Acc: A)
[chip=CHIPNAME,i] will output the chip's icon.
// AquaAura1, FireAura1, ElecAura1, WoodAura1
[chip=CHIPNAME,s] will output only the summary.
60 + Knockback (Acc: A) // Cannon
120 + Knockback (Acc: A) // Hi-Cannon
180 + Knockback (Acc: A) // M-Cannon
[chip=CHIPNAME,f] will output the icon and a clickable name, which will display a popup with the full description that is available from the Battle Chip Lists.
NeoVariableSwordDamage: 160 + Slashing + Variable Mode
Description: A sword that, while normally acts like an ordinary sword, can be combined with another sword chip to give added effects.
- Custom Sword grants LifeSword (3x2) range, and boosts accuracy to A, but does not add power.
- Slasher grants the ability to counter close ranged chips, much like Slasher itself.
- Combining with a VariableSword allows the use of any VariableSword capable ranges.
- Combining with any other sword chip produces SonicBoom effects.
In exchange for the power and versatility, the sword breaks at the end of the turn it's used on, no matter how many times it's been used. Rare
Duration: One turn.
Special: Variable Mode: When using this chip, the user may sacrifice an additional Sword-type chip, adding its damage to to this chip. Only ONE chip may be used for this purpose.
Trader Rank: S
GunDelSolEXDamage: 25 + 2x Exponential Boost + Beam Attack + Object Erasure + Extended Cone Attack
Description: Fires a powerful short-ranged solar spray beam that erases objects and damages, breaches, and/or nullifies all defenses on contact. The beam quickly gets stronger as you focus on using it, but it also dies out if you take any other action. Rare
Duration: Until you stop using it.
Special: Attribute Lock: This battlechip cannot be imbued with an element or extra damage.
Special: Object Erasure: Instantly deletes objects in the attack's path on-contact.
Special: Beam Attack: An unholy combination of Slashing, Break, Seeking, Impact, and Piercing.
Special: Extended Cone Attack: Attacks in a cone shape, hitting 1 panel ahead, then 3 panels wide after that, and finally 5 panels wide. This attack does not reach further than 3 panels ahead.
Special: 2x Exponential Boost: Damage is doubled from its previous amount for every action in battle that has passed since this chip has been activated, stacking. Attack ends as soon as any other action is taken, either active or passive.
Trader Rank: S
NoxiousWoodPowderDamage: 150 + Large Grass Terrain Change + Confusion + Extended Cone Attack
Description: Blast up to 4 enemies with a cone of miasma breath. Changes terrain to Grass and causes confusion on contact. Rare
Trader Rank: A
Thanks to Shuryou for helping in bugtesting. Any feature additions or bug reports, please direct them to me or Shuryou.
[sub]P/S: Since the full description option emulates the old Drakim tab style, if anyone kind of cares, I could code them up again...[/sub]
