The thought of a sentient war machine does not lead me to think of a female combat bot, but rather more like Skynet; a single entity simultaneously controlling a large number of auton combatants + tanks + equipment etc.
I found the author's note extremely valuable, and feel that should be at the top, or even in the description blurb. If I understand correctly, a caryatid system is an anime character with combat weapon styling. I love the name btw, and the term 'to greeble'.
The GEAS is neat - sort of like Asimov's laws. I can see opposing sides trying to bug the opposing side's GEAS or some military developers trying to get a more effective combat system by bending the rules. That, and playing as a Caryatid character would give you a sort of paladin code-of-honor.Go to Comment
It is always interesting to build a setting and then flesh it out by asking the question "how would this evolve? How would people exploit it?"
This post asks how the well-to-do in a magic-heavy campaign might flaunt their magic. Great!
I imagine spells for pymgy-cute familiars, magically branding designer items ("Oh, she has the prada bag of holding"), and for making your mounts faster / more impressive.
Full-magic campaigns can be tricky if everyone has access to high-power magic. I'd imagine a lot of protection spells would abound.
I like the change of post name and feel that most of the spells fit the bill.Go to Comment
