In Topic: A stealth weapon that's never been done before

I think throwing stars are the best option. Nearly 100% guaranteed not to kill in the first shot but very stealthy. Only the target is aware of you with other targets maybe being aware the target is alert but still don't know where you are. Multiple blows to the face get you a kill.
Short bow would be great too, not totally quiet but more deadly. Both options can be very loud if you miss. Imagine a Boromir zombie death scene.

I think some one did. No way the voice actors did that melodrama on their own. Some one HAD to tell them to shame themselves like that.

In Topic: Who is my enemy? Brainstorming

Biological based weapons suck as spitting acid of shooting bone spikes? Too primitive to be useful such as spears? Make them melee fighters hitting and clawing but with movement mechanics to make it interesting (lunging, jumping, rolling, sprinting) ?

You could also just ignore the issue. Plenty RPGs leave equipment rendered in the art that are not in the loot.
Mass effect series drops ammo but not armour or weapons and you scan armour and weapons in predetermined places to get access to new types.

In Topic: Taking on parteners for indie development.

Well the term partner was the closest I could think of but this is still before anything is finalized, which is why I want to know how it should work.
A good rule of thumb here, I think, may just be to put myself in the shoes of the guy I want to work with me.
I'm reading that article now, Tom. Thanks.

He wants to define the setting based on the enemy, and the enemy has certain game play restrictions.

So, here is an idea.

They are beast-like. They came form underground released and awoken after being dormant for tens of thousands of years. The cataclysm that awoke them was a mega volcano the ruptured the earth. It also clouded the sky in a permanent dark haze. Small pockets of people that survived their first waves and the eruption are holding out somewhere. They stay safe with a perimeter of very high intensity lighting that forms a no-man's land around their last bases.

These guys can be actual beast that are more like predatory animals, or the can be beast-like humanoids that are using human tech found after their first attacks. Any level of intelligence can work here.

A visual idea.
