I made it! wasn't too hard, and its specifically for DF. That way you get stuff like Dark One Holy Warriors. No motivations included though.



Do remember the F-Bomb remains offensive to a fair number of people.

I first tried hiding it in the embedded link so it wouldn't be seen, but it killed it there too... So I repasted the URL so you could figure it out if you haven't checked it out.

I certainly meant no offence, I find that site most amusing.

High Pain Threshold [10]
Immunity to Metabolic Hazards [30]
Dark Vision [25]
Regeneration, Regular [25]
Detect Evil Supernatural Beings [10]
Shuriken / Bladed hands / Long Knife [48]

But I'm reconsidering and thinking of shifting it to be based on...

Assume the usual under the hood while looking a bit like tall fey-ish warrior until I do an update and a template adjustment.

Can I spend some of my budget on a mage sword ahead of time, or other quick and dirty enchantments?

It lines up fairly well with DF existing category of "Truly Evil", which is nice. This does not include all elder things, but it does include a lot of them. Its worth pointing out that DF cares about creature types, and Genesis form will count as a divine servitor... and of course V's native form is Dragon.

Cool!

Yes --- though keep it at or under 60% of your total ($3,000) and fairly straitforward please.

I thought I saw a question about rules of engagement here.



This is DF land, so blending in isn't really required. Multiple worlds are already in play because this is a skerry. The guidelines here are to blend in enough that they don't go looking for other worlds beyond their own Skerry.


So mentions of Corco should be vague and indirect, and Halcyone probably shouldn't describe the city and tech base she comes from in great detail, and so on. But using your tech and describing it as "clever work" should be fine.

I did post that in IC, but I went back and reviewed the beginning for the thread and found I was mis-remembering.

I'm pretty sure I warned you to bring good weapons to use against a swarm?

That's true. I think we both (or at least I) kinda glossed over that. I don't have my books with me right now, but I'm fairly sure what Halcyone has (i.e. Vibroblades and rifles) isn't going to cut it against a flying swam. I don't recall specifically said about the drone swarms she had, but I was going with the impression those were mostly recon drones, not attacking drones.
