  • Spectacle.

    And if your PCs are Solars with Tiger Warriors, high quality Twilight-crafted gear, and maybe some First Age essence weaponry... it could very well be as asymmetrical as WH40k vs IRL Romans Legionnaires....

  • Many good ideas here.

    Anyone ever given any thought to Gilgamesh himself? In light of his clairvoyance and his purpose to be a judge of humanity, I think he'd have been a Lore Supernal of the Zenith caste. Possibly Twilight, given he did build his treasury himself and in FGO we see him build and control an entire city's worth of essence cannon equivalents. But that could just mean he took the Crafting trifecta as favored and built up the power later.

    Enkidu would obviously be his Lunar mate. Can Lunars be made of clay and turn into chains? He did basically yoink Shamhat's...

  • The concept wasn't all encompassing with every detail hammered out. It was, in fact, solely about the method of accessing and using the contents of the Gate and how that might be done in mechanical terms.

    As for the contents being artifact grade, yeah they would be. I have thought about how that might be done, but it's difficult to do if artifacts are meant to be unique as 3E holds. Holding true to the source, the contents of the Gate would be a vast selection of artifacts collected by the owner(or previous owner, if this is meant to end up in player hands), themselves ranging from...

  • It's not the summoning of weapons by itself. Are you familiar with Fate's Gilgamesh and his Gate of Babylon? Have a demonstration.

  • Perhaps attunement to Gil's Key of the King's Law and having the manse's heartstone set in it is what allows the manse to open its portals beyond Creation....

    started a topic Evocations for Manses - A Gate of Babylon idea

    Evocations for Manses - A Gate of Babylon idea

    Is it possible or at least feasible to have evocations for Manses? The thought came to me while I was trying to brainstorm up an Elder Solar Gilgamesh along with his iconic Gate of Babylon. And the idea occurred, what if his GoB is a complex treasury in this setting too, like a NA Solar Manse?

    My idea roughly is this;
    1. Single Portal - this would allow him to open a portal to his treasury and pull forth one weapon or item of his choosing, instantly attuning it if needed.
    2. Artillery portal - this would be the kind of portal that fires a weapon from it, as either a thrown or archery

    Exigent seems better, imo, if you're absolutely set on a lightning themed brawler. Exigent of Storms or Thunder, maybe.

    Solars are top end, obviously, but they're still got a color theme going on of golden sunlight. Not something to fit lightning, you see.

    I suppose it would, I tend to forget about that fourth mastery. Even OP failed to mention it. ...

    replied to The setting-level powers of the Solars?
    One thing the corebook fails to distinguish when it comes to pointing out Solar masteries is their mastery of social effects, lovingly called social-fu in past editions. Also called social dickery by others. For good reason. Not even the Fair Folk can hold a candle to a Solar's ability to mold a mind to their liking, but strangely it is not mind control. It is such sublime social skill that the Solars can pick out the words, thoughts, and concepts necessary to shift a person's psyche as they like, then express it all with such a perfect arrangement of words. All without directly using magic on...

    I was making a joke. Was that not obvious? Didn't the :P serve as a humor indicator?...

    An Exalt hasn't failed unless they are dead or Akuma.

    They've only experienced a temporary setback. :P...

    That's a fairly un-Lunarish thought, imo. They are all about enduring in the face of torment and trauma. Leviathan and Lilith might have changed into animals in an attempt to hide from their pain, but they didn't fuck off innawoods for a millenium....

    To be honest, the more I hear, the less I like.

    It feels like this thing is an attempt to force game balance into this setting, which is absolute nonsense.
