Thread: I'll see your parasite and raise you a sprite (Sprite Weapons Teaser)

  1. #1

    Default I'll see your parasite and raise you a sprite (Sprite Weapons Teaser)

    Hey everyone, new to this Duskruin run will be a collection of sprite weapons. These weapons hold a sprite within them that can do a lot of stuff. These are similar to parasite weapons, but with a jovial sprite that feeds on mana instead of blood. Some things may change before they hit the shelves, but here is a sneak peak. I'm 95% sure they will be ready in time.

    The staff itself has two appearances. Active and inactive. In addition, it summons a sprite companion that hangs out with you and is fantastically charming.

    Appearance

    You see GameMaster Retser.
    He appears to be a bro.
    He is holding a splintered wooden crook covered in burn marks in his right hand.

    Retser pushes his hand down the surface of his wooden crook. A small white sprite materializes near the end of his crook. The distorted surface begins to mend as glyphs appear and fade across its surface. A final pulse of white light reveals a glowing wooden crook. The white sprite flits just over his shoulder.

    The white sprite flying above Retser's shoulder whispers something to him.

    Ambients

    Sprite Flares

    The flares themselves can be turned on and off, cost mana, and come with a damage type of krush. A very rare service will be available to change this to any damage type.
    In addition, they grow stronger with higher affinity.

    You slap Walkar's cheek, hard.
    He continues, "I've decided that I'm not going to let you serve community service, so don't get your hopes up. To this aim, you may either pay the fine of 50000000 silvers plus any other outstanding debts you may owe, or serve a total of 120 minutes of incarceration. You may ANSWER me either FINE or INCARCERATION as your choice. But I digress. Choose quickly, now, lest I hold you in contempt of court for wasting my time."

    There's a reason everyone threw their sprite mirror down the well.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    lol oh come on, Retser is like the king of slipping in RL stuff into Gemstone. The white-point star diamonds from SoS is a perfect example, as it's a gem used as a fairly well-known plot device in Doctor Who.
