New antag Idea

Postby Carlist_Crab » Sat Aug 08, 2020 12:39 pm #571862

I have an idea for a type of terminator antag. How about the Syndicate sends back a robo terminator to kill a crew member and Nanotrasen sends a crew member to protect the target.

Both start off without any gear needing to scavenge the station for clothing and weapons. The terminator would be quite powerful, but very vulnerable to emps. Maybe has some powers at the start?

it doesn't sound like there's enough to this that separates it from traitor or BB. or, if you give them powers, then they'd just be wizard-lite.
it could work as a limited midround antag though, with ghosts being picked for it. just understand that the terminator (and probably the protector) would just fuck off to do their own antag shit.
in the end though 'protect X' objectives often don't mean shit to the antagonists; they are optional, after all. so unless you turned these guys into limited antags as i said earlier, it'd probably be rare to see legitimate, focused conflict between the two antags.
