Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 7/10/2017 A blood red summer has come. As the Edo Bugei students finish facing off with the ikko forces all across the nation a massive steel ship floats towards Edo Harbor. The final battle between the Ikko Ikki rebels and the Edo Bugei students is about to begin. The lingering question now, just how much of Edo will be left standing once the battle ends?

I'd like to suggest a few items/upgrades. The credit value is just a shot in the dark. Obviously feel free to change anything here.


O-yoroi (Special Outfit)
A much heavier style of armor then the standard student uniform, O-yoroi is only allowed on missions or while sparing. It is a little restrictive and heavy limiting what one can do in it but is much more protective. Unlike its historic counter parts it has metal alloy plates, Kevlar, and distributive bracing, and can even reduce a close range gunshot to that of a club strike. You'll have a bruise or maybe a cracked rib at worse but it won't kill you and you can keep on fighting!
300 credits.

Gimmick (Weapon Upgrade)
Built into your weapon is some sort of gimmick or trick. Maybe this is adding a retractable cord to the hilt of your katana that can support your weight (allowing it to be thrown and recovered or used like a grappling hook) or a hydraulic grip added to a set of claws. Requires staff approval (credit value may change).
(at least) 150 credits.

Trim (Weapon Upgrade)
Your weapon has been lightened and even given a few inches more reach. It's well balanced but a bit frailer- sacrificing the capacity to inflict punishing blows in favor or faster and more accurate attacks. Sometimes, it only takes one blow.
150 credits.

Great (Weapon Upgrade)
Your weapon is now one of the finest example of craftsmanship. It has been reforged to be better balanced, materials have been replaced with stronger ones, and it has been tuned to your preferred set of balance by a master smith. This causes it to be a bit more offensive, have a stronger resistance to attacks, and (despite this) is faster. When you draw your weapon- people know what it is.
500 credits.

Mercurial-
This weapon, commonly a long blade, would have a hollow tube running through the center from tange to tip. Inside of this tube would be a transition metal, such as mercury. When the weapon in swung, the force of the sweep would send the fluid from the handle to the tip of the blade, making the tip heavier. This would give the weapon a heavier hit without altering the carrying weight of the blade in any meaningful way. However, special training would be necessary to compensate the new, more intense follow-through of the weapon's attack.

Shop credits for thread based ones that ate non-mission, I think should be guaged by page length for the effort and continuity everyone that participated more than a brief two cameo posts worth, an entry and exit sort of stop by.

A solo natured thread would be case by case on what it did for said character by content.

Double posting for an idea.

What about if people wanted to purchase a custom made uniform? No special gimmicks though, just some new duds or when purchasing one of the special items, since we currently don't have a reference image to go by, would members be able to pick out the appearance of said outfit?

I feel like the degree of customization would matter. On one hand Edo Bugei still has to seem like a military organization.

A few of the tracks are lacking a shop skills.

Would these be okay as abilities for Traditional Students? Also thinking of a second ability, like a secondary path of choosing between becoming more attack orientated or defensive or speed kinda thing for tweeked varitations if, to say, someone already specked their character backgrounds to have a skill through their family training.


ARTILLERY: Clarvoyance; sensing the target from afar, sensory range is heightened and accuracy is raised greatly to ensure your very first shot becomes successful hit. A true hunter never loses sight of their true target but a Master uses this to its full potential and exploit their target.


GUARDS: Tell Signs; using the ability to read poker faces, the tells of people if they are lying or being honest. To see through disguises and find the truth behind a frontal mask. Even if they person knows the truth, a key clue will fall out hinting at a bigger picture. One truth prevails only this will make it easier to find such falsities.

STRATEGIST: Overseer's Aura; information about the field and its pieces is like a chess game. The map of the battle is in your hand, almost literally at times as getting such key information is provided upon request. People are also more likely to share finer details that tend to get overlooked in a normal briefing. The layout is clear, the pieces are set. How you play is up to your personal style.

I would suggest that students are able to buy the special ability of another track at a higher price. Like, X2 for the first outside track training, X3 for the second, etc. Because I don't see why a soldier couldn't learn some other tactic or a smith couldn't learn how to perform a special attack. It would just be an extracurricular thing rather than what they learn in class, hence the higher cost. Of course prices may need to be adjusted but it might open up neat combinations to make characters more unique in fighting styles. Plus, the list isn't massive so some crossover might alleviate it without doing away the perk of having a specific track in the first place.
