Very fun submission.
I think the programming methods with the "Ether Crystal Resonance Array" and "Ether-pods" was interesting, even if it felt somewhat above my head. I would love to see a submission all about these "Ether-pods" and what they can do with the "ECRA," because I'm not sure I'm entirely getting how they're suppose to work, and I think much has been left unsaid.
I think I agree with Scras'. Without more information for why/how it exists theres no reason to use it. I'm not sure theres even that huge of a different between the weights and properties of gold and silver for it to make a big difference. Why not use silver? why not use gold? It makes an interesting flavor addition, but I don't really like it.
