Well, normally I come up with or find some amusing quote, but I couldn't find the motivation to do that for this one. So instead I took a page out of Generic Strolenite's book and copied the first couple of sentances. Go to Comment
Another one of my favourites, and a great source of inspiration. Dystopic, dysphoric, dystonic and other things beginning with dys...I love it! Perfect in presentation, content, symbolism and atmosphere. What else is there to say? 5/5, and it damn well deserves it. Good job! /David Go to Comment
Can't ask why it wouldn't work, for there are immediately several options springing into my mind. One is (besides the officially spread the blessing of a god) ritual magic - the Samahhi have by accident discovered a ritual that makes an armor close to indestructible, for a time of course. No wonder those soldiers are fervent believers - it makes them undefeatable (well, of course not, but you get the idea) - and it is good to have such a god.
As a side note, it seems the armor itself (when not 'enchanted' or not worn by the person that enchanted it) is fairly weak, which I find an interesting twist. Cool idea, Pariah. Go to Comment
Interesting...ferro-ceramic armor. But I also see it as a living armor, a sort of talisman or magical item that only works for the attuned wearer. This could require regular bonding/cleaning rituals to maintain the ceramic plates, or rituals of blood on the armor, whatever.
The Samahen seem to be some pretty interesting folk, pretty crafty though only the name's resemblence to Samhain makes me think of dark and gloomy. With common ceramics, i would expect them to be from a hot and sun drenched place. Go to Comment
On the one side I like the setting. It gives a nice dark tone to something bigger. Something far more devious than what is on the surface. Yet on the other side, I find that there just doesn't seem to be enough information about the armor.
Don't get me wrong it is a great idea. The armor of my god protects those who are worthy kind of thing, awesome. An infidel wearing it will find no protection in it. Great! But it is lacking something for me. Go to Comment
