Subj: Spoiler: Nebular and Solar Weapons
Hello!

I’m here to discuss Solar and Nebular weapons with you.

Let me start by sharing some of their info:

— Nebular Weapons —

You analyze your vultite falchion and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is a Nebular Weapon that grants its wielder the power of starlight during the hours of the night by giving a bonus that increases as the night reaches its apex. However, as the night wanes, so do its powers, and it begins to give a minus during the day.

The falchion has access to the following verbs at its current tier of 1 (OTS) out of 4: rub, salute, and tilt.

You may alter this item freely provided that it never has a description that would oppose the spheres of Ronan’s domain.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the vultite falchion for you.

— Solar Weapons —

You analyze your vultite falchion and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This is a Solar Weapon that grants its wielder the power of sunlight during the hours of the day by giving a bonus that increases as the day reaches its apex. However, as the day wanes, so do its powers, and it begins to give a minus during the night.

The falchion has access to the following verbs at its current tier of 1 (OTS) out of 4: rub, salute, and tilt.

You may alter this item freely provided that it never has a description that would oppose the spheres of Phoen’s domain.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the vultite falchion for you.


In the shop the Penitent Petitioner, you can buy a 4x Solar or Nebular weapon off the shelf, they naturally have cold (Nebular) or fire (Solar) flares.

There will be unlocking certificates available as well, some will be limited and the price will scale.

1) If a 10th level person (able to hold the base Enchant of the vultite) gets one of these, what happens when s/he tries to ‘get’ or swing it at midnight/noon? Scaling bonus makes it impossible?

.

2) I’m going to go out on a limb and say “+/- 1 AS per hour per Tier”?
So at sunrise/sunset, they’re ‘natural Enchant’ of what they’re on.
An hour later, they’re +1/-1 (depending on whether they are in their or the opposing part of the cycle).
By midnight/noon, they’re +6/-6.
Tier2, +2/-2 scaling up to +12/-12.
And so on.

How’s my guess?

.

3) Available as a “Rare” flare addition with the correct cert?

Very neat concept!

Do these take up the script slot or flare slot or both?

There are only hilted or hafted weapons at this time.

Both

There is not a runestaff version at this time. I’m not sure of Nerve shop pricing, so I can’t answer this.

> Krakii

What?

The bonus will not ever prevent someone from taking their weapon out or putting it away or anything like that if they can hold vultite, then they can always wield this.

Also, It’s not based on hour but based on time type (ie Sunrise, Midmorning, etc.)

Here’s some more info:

The falchion has access to the following verbs at its current tier of 2 out of 4: bow, pray, rub, salute, tilt, and touch.

You may alter this item freely provided that it never has a description that would oppose the spheres of Phoen’s domain.

You might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the vultite falchion for you.

Incidentally, bow works in all sitting, kneeling, standing, lying down positions. Each is different.

Its hard to tell what these might do.

Should make this like a blink weapon, where the blink spell on flare is locked to the light spell or darkness spell. Light spell has some good benefits, like an MM modifier, would have been highly useful to have that go off (without required a 3 second cast time opportunity cost as per casting the spell manually).

Or make a tier do that.

* Indicates activation for a temporary (5 minute) eye feature change.

At the falchion’s current tier it will issue solar flares during the day or the night.

Spoilers are when you tell something before everyone gets to see/use it, teasers are when you hint at what something can do. One is a mystery, the other is not.

“Certificate version”, meaning “the ability to add this to pre-existing weapons–armor, accessories, shields…–via purchase of a certificate, as for instance in the HESS.”

Subj: Re: Spoiler: Nebular and Solar Weapons
Good Morning,

Yes, absolutely but not this run. The script is designed for a weapon that has a hilt or a haft. Here’s an example of why:

bow my falchion
With a small flourish, you twirl a vultite falchion at your side and then lower yourself into a deep bow, your right leg extended behind you as you bend your left knee.

You kneel down.

bow my falchion
Curling your left hand behind your back, you raise a vultite falchion in your clenched right fist and tap it to your left shoulder. Holding the falchion in place, you incline your head in a small bow of respect.

You move to a sitting position.

bow falchion
Laying a vultite falchion across the tops of your knees, you maintain one hand on the hilt and gesture invitingly with the other.

You lie down.

bow falchion
Rolling to your back, you lay a vultite falchion across the length of your body, keeping your right hand on the hilt and the other beneath your head.

Morning,

There seems to be some confusion on the Tiering for these. So let me clear it up:

Tier 1 – Sun/Star Bonus cycles +/- Verbs: Salute, Rub, Tilt
Tier 2 – Sun/Star bonus doubles +/- Verbs: Bow, Touch, Pray
Tier 3 – Flares – Sunlight/Starlight – Verb: Raise (Temp Eyechar Change lasts 5 min)
Tier 4 – 1x day Spell Affect Verb: Chant

What is the bonus? The weapons are intriguing but the cost is holding me back due to how expensive it would be to fully unlock it.

As I gaze over the horizon, the wind tugs at my cloak and whispers, “Adventure” in my ear.

At Tier 1 – +/- up to 6
At Tier 2 – +/- up to 12

Everything should always run as an even bonus/minus.

Subj: Re: Spoiler: Nebular and Solar Weapons
I am unclear about the analyze. Does the item description have to be specifically aligned with the Arkati Phoen (solar) or Ronan (nebular)? Or does it have to be aligned with something that would not contradict the themes of day (solar) or night (nebular)? If the former, I expect a lot of Lornon-aligned characters will be quite disappointed.

Subj: Re: Spoiler: Nebular and Solar Weapons
Essentially, contradicting. However, this weapon was geared more towards light-aligned characters.

That being said, I’ve been toying with a more dark-aligned idea for a good long while now… I just need more time to flesh it out.

Sorry, I still don’t understand your answer. Which should a nebular weapon’s description do – not contradict an alignment with Ronan, or not contradict an alignment with night?

Nebular weapons must remain something that will not contradict the spheres of Ronan. (ie – don’t cover it in jackals)
Solar weapons must remain something that will not contradict the spheres of Phoen (ie – don’t cover it in rot)

Lady Thandiwe … please remember that some of us stride that fine line of Ronan. Who reigns in the dark, and shines his light wherever needed.

Not all things of darkness are creepy, evil, have dark flavoring, etc. Some of them are Ronan!

So, found the Weapons of The Night…

Could I make an impassioned plea for a runestick, please?

They are straight. You can handle one wherever you want to. The haft runs into the hilt runs into the weapon, runs into the handle!

They have all sorts of character and appeal to those who use magic and music to help in the work of the Lord of Dreams.

Final point: Pretty sure a jackal would look like last week’s FRIED critter bait after being at the end of a Nebular Runestaff. And there would be unicorns cheering from somewhere unseen.

You don’t want to disappoint the unicorns, right? I know you would not…

Solar weapons have flavorful Fire Flares
Nebular weapons have flavorful Cold Flares

The flare takes up the script & flare spot. These are not blessable. I’m sorry if this is confusing people, but I thought I had said as much earlier.

I went to purchase a 20,000 scrip unlock from T2 to T3 today and found the price nearly doubled at 39,0000 and change.

🙁
