And invariably, some will pretend to have these weapons, to dissuade invaders and increase their pretense of power.

Not for every campaign, but it is worth considering. You could make a WWBMWI for nuclear weapons. :)

Great work, Kassil! Go to Comment

Updated: Ouroborus and I were discussing the initial idea of this thing; it was stalled out, but his Conversion Device and our subsequent conversation gave it new life. Go to Comment

Entirely thanks to the discussion with you. It also fits much better with Kuramen in this form than the initial version did. Go to Comment

You could say that. Nobody wants to risk being hit by it, once they've seen the aftermath; not many want to fire them a second time, either. Go to Comment

Thank you. I was trying for something logical but hideous, and seem to have succeeded fairly well. Go to Comment

Boom, indeed. It'd be a particularly nasty weapon if fired at a pack of thaumavores like the Whisps; they'd absorb a tremendous dose of aether, overload, and detonate in fallout reactions pretty much at the same instant as the pulse shreds the world, making it the equivalent of a radioactive blast.

I think the worst component of this would be for the soldier at the epicenter, witnessing the ripples preceding the event, and realizing he's too close to the heart of it to escape. The kind of sudden fear, panic, and apathetic despair that would have to crash over him in that moment would potentially be as destructive as the weapon itself; I imagine some commit suicide before the detonation occurs, if they know what's happening.

You're correct; I imagine mock assemblages of components would relatively common among the less-prosperous states, leading to a kind of cold-war state where everyone distrusts everyone else. Ulfdin likely has a top-grade counter-spy network in place to protect their control over the key components of the devices, and that there are probably those among their welathiest rivals trying to reverse-engineer one of the cannons in order to create their own...

I don't recognize that acronym. WWBMWI? Go to Comment

I thought he might mean that, but the acronym was a bit scrambled. Go to Comment

Truth. Some of the entries were awesome.

Steampunk is obviously a very rich genre. Go to Comment

They are, indeed, fairly expensive; given their sheer bulk and come delicate components, they're not battlefield-portable, so they tend to be emplacements. Ulfdin tends to see a fair surplus to their treasury whenever one gets comissioned, as they have the secret of growing the 'warp crystals' that help focus the transformation effect. I expect other nations are vigorously researching the method of creation, but as the sub suggests, it involved less than pleasant methods to divine the secret. That said, it's only a matter of time and will, and I'm sure that eventually you'll have battlefields that have soldiers equipped with firearms equivalents of Uther Doul's Possible Sword, each firing producing a swarm of nigh-bullets.

A Cold War situation is highly probable as a result of their creation, yes. Go to Comment

That was the chief inspirational effect, yes. Rather than a sustained and steady operative field, this is a split-second pulse of utter devastation. The Device is a bomb with fallout. The Cannon is just a devastating gun. Go to Comment

That's... Quite an interesting device they have there. Airburst weapons have so much potential for utter devastation it isn't funny. Go to Comment

It is said the best weapon is the one you never have to use. I disagree. The best weapon is the one you only have to use once.

Brutal, nasty, a good bit of logic behind the effects. Very nice Kassil Go to Comment

It reminds me of the Conversion Device in effect, a WMD that sunders reality. Go to Comment

Weapons of mass destruction inevitably are horrifying. The delivery is what makes these subs as good as they are. Go to Comment
