Hey Mark, I've got a few ideas for some Gyrohem characters that live on the "other side" of the planet during Linx and Yoshimitsu's war against Abyssion. The main story follows a power struggle between lesser deities and an avatar of the Core. They wanted to exceed his power out of jealousy and lust for power, but could never manage to put a dent into his astral body. The Core, being a protective deity, decided to mask the aura of both him and his opponents so that Gyrohem's inhabitants wouldn't detect the battle and go insane from the intense power given off. Remember Umia? She's involved with the beings who want to take down the Core. In the end, she's the only survivor (think of it as Akame Ga Kill! on bath salts). The Core also erases her memory of the entire situation. From then on, she becomes an accomplice of Zaunig and travels throughout existence searching for a purpose.
I initially wanted her to be an Existence Key character similar to Aeria, but decided against it, figuring that she would gain more attention as a Gyrohem OC.
I actually ditched the percentages entirely and did a new system for it, which is basically the more willpower you have, the more you can resist abilities that can affect beings of higher tiers.
If we're going by that scale, low willpower (let's say the average human in an intense situation. Ex: Their child is stuck under a car inside of a garage that's about to explode and they need to get them out, but they can only call out the strength to carry the car through willpower) would be able to resist things around their level.
Medium willpower (People that would never back down from anything, and is superior in willpower in every way to low willpower. Ex: Kamijou Touma and Shirou Emiya) would be able to resist abilities that can affect beings multiple tiers higher than their own, but not too much higher than their base power. To be honest medium willpower is the widest range, as it can vary between Building level to City Block level, or from Building level to like Mountain level.
High willpower (People that have unfathomable willpower to surpass any odds whatsoever, and if their willpower can be visible as an aura, it'd be the size of a universe, or possibly infinity) would be able to resist abilities that can affect beings on the highest possible tier on their dimensional scale. Ex: If they're 3-D, they'd be able to resist abilities that would affect High 3-A beings. If they're 4-D, they'd be able to resist abilities that would affect 2-A beings. Etc.
Tl;dr: New scale, and it's basically low, medium, and high willpower. The examples are up above. :V
Oh. And the resistance applies to an ability itself rather than person using it? (Take a 2-B being vs that high willpower 4D being, and said 2-B throws out a High 2-A existence erasure type attack because ... reasons, the other guy gets erased or no?)
I know that sounds like a stupid question, but I'm asking it anyway.
The resistance applies to anything shown to be able to be resisted by Willpower Defense, so that includes physical attacks. And yes, the high willpower 4-D being would get erased, since that's a 5-D attack, and they can't resist the ability. That's actually the reason why Linx lost to Eclipsinnus.
There's one battle in particular that we've both wanted to try out for a while now. I'm sure you know which one I'm talking about. A hero with a bunch of swords, and a hero with psychic powers. Also, for commentary, it'd be funny to have Yoshimitsu and Miko as announcers. X)
It's depressing, man. I'd love to hear feedback and constructive thoughts on my works, but I haven't really progressed in that department. Good news though - I've been planning out my drafts for Azuran's storyline.
Just so you don't think I'm "cheating" I made this edit. It's a minor addition and I thought that the profile was complete in the first place. The reason I hadn't added it before was because I couldn't think of a suitable ability as "drawing cards" doesn't make sense.
May want to remove my characters from the most powerful character thread. I've lost interest for the time being and it'll probably be a long while before I get back to editing. I've already made it clear that I don't want characters being used in threads without my permission, so if I haven't commented on the thread then it should be closed.
Take your time, you'll get to it at some point.
On another note, how do you even get in to classes like that? I wish I could take drawing lessons or plan out fiction with friends, but I'm such a shut out that I don't really have anyone to contact.
