Nice, and I would think that the demons would be right, anyone who can kill a demon and make armor out of his corpse should rightly be feared. I would also expect that so long as the armor is worn, the wearer would be unable to enter holy places, or be healed by clerical magic. There would be downsides to wearing a processed demon shell as armor. Go to Comment

Useful to wear if going to a hellish realm. What happens if someone is buried wearing it? Does the ghost have ghostly armour? Go to Comment

Still, nice come uppance on the Daemons. Nearly allways Mortals are exploited by Outsiders, this is a nice turn of the table on the Daemons. Go to Comment

Chaosmark's comment on 2008-11-10 11:15 AM
The thing to remember, not just with thaumatech, is that any innately magical being is going to have some sort of natural anti-magic defenses, to say nothing of knowing counter-magic of their own. Rare is the daemon that doesn't know at least a bit of the magical arts, and most would tend to be able to take a full wizard in a fight. There's a good reason daemon summoning is frowned upon. Thaumatech weaponry would take a bit for them to get used to, but I wouldn't say it'd make fighting daemons a field day. Go to Comment

Bone armor in general seems to get glossed over when adventurers wear it. I would think that even though it's a show of power to some people, wearing such armor would simply frighten the general populace. "Look at that one; see those bones he wears? Only daemon-sworn wear armor like that." Heaven knows the common people like to tell stories, and how hard is it to move from daemon-slayer to daemon-collaborator? Go to Comment

This is neat, though how one would fashion mail from bone without heavy magic escapes me. Plates, sure.

Yes. And with the way that magical energy is of divine source in Kuramen, Siren and I had an amusing bit of conversation; if you overload it, the contraption starts to hum, and if a really potent energy source shows up - like, say, a Small God - it'll just explode.

It resulted in Siren's comment: "I'm now picturing some madman trying to make a religious experience out of an exploding Geiger counter, thanks."

Smoke detector, barometer, Geiger counter... Whatever you want to liken it to, it's one of those ubiquitous items that just make sense, and seem like they have to show up in some form eventually. If you can't measure the energy, you can't try to figure out what level of it is unsafe to be near. Go to Comment

Not quite as useful as the goggles, and you should really, really hope that no gods decide to drop in on you. Go to Comment

Something like a cross between a smoke detector and a barometer, really. Go to Comment

Glad you think so.

The initial idea actually came from a conversation with a friend I only half-jokingly call my muse; it got more refined from the comments Chaosmark and Ouroborus left on the Goggles. Go to Comment

There should be more things like this, for any setting. I'm currently drawing a blank on possible further bits for steampunk, but Pieh's ESI seems like a good basis for that sort of thing.

I liked Cheka's idea of one of these on the C-47, as an early-warning device for potential misfires. Maybe you could use them as bombs if the enemy relies really heavily on magic, enough to make them explode. Go to Comment

Yes, it definitely could. You might even use it to make miniature versions of it that can be worn as rings, or mix the two together and have the Mirichromite be something of an early-warning portion, if it's more sensitive than the rest of the aetherometer. Go to Comment

Very nice work. The bits of story in there really brought it life. I really loved the off hand remark by Quillhand about how the scout was now a God.



"Eh, wha? Oh yeah, dudes a God now. Not really a big deal; he just glows or something, I don't rightly recall."

This is a great item, necessity and pragmaticism bonded together to create a device that detects the presence of magic with a minimal investment to keep it running. A magical smoke detector... of sorts. Go to Comment

This is a thing that is bound to exist in any setting featuring thaumatech as well as advanced sorcery. It can take any shape, but basically, you NEED a Geiger counter. A solid 4 from me. Go to Comment

Once again: standard thaumatech (or even sorcery) gear. The small items like this are truly what makes a world real. Go to Comment

Nicely done!

You could make one of these with Mirichromite :) Go to Comment

As Chaosmark said, a good, necessary bit of equipment for a thaumatech or sorcery lab. Well done.
