I had an idea for a Toad/Frog humanoid character that was a support character, that didn’t necessarily alter health or shields.
The idea is for this character to have a Hypo Needle Gun hooked up to his Paratoid Gland(Poison sac).
He can fire in two modes. One mode will badly poison enemies, and stack. This poison does high amounts of damage, but may have positive effects on the enemy as well, such as increasing it’s movement speed slightly.
His second mode of fire applies a filter to his Toxin which filters out the negative compounds which cause damage, and amplifies the benefits of it when used on allies. (This is a take on Bufotoxin medicine which is used in china for vitality and virility.) These toxins can cause you to hallucinate as well. They are used to treat cancer also!(There may be a mutation helix talent that allows it to regen health some. Also we can have a mutation that causes you to see things in the game that aren’t really there, such as enemies shooting at you.)
Other elements of this character is that it can jump higher and further than other characters. While sprinting it can jump to cover large distances, and standing still you get a high jump.
There is so much that can be done with this. Who thinks a Toad character that shoots his own poison in a hypo is a cool idea?
