The Serenthan Elements
« on: 08 September 2019, 16:39:40 »
There's 40 of them, now.

Aether, Air, Animal, *Anomaly*, *Bio*, *Chaos*, Chrono, Darkness, *Data*, *Dream*, Earth, *Emotion*, *Fey*, Fire, *Gravity*, Heart, Ice, *Illusion*, *Laser*, Leaf, Light, Mana, *Mend*, Metal, Moon, *Nether*, Null, *Paper*, *Plasma*, Poison, Psychic, *Shadow*, Sound, Space, Spirit, Star, Sun, Thunder, Ultima, and Water.

"Zero" is used for those without elemental affinities.
Shikai: Ibaratane (Release command: "Bloom~, Ibaratane~.")
Bankai: Ibaratane Mitsuin
Resurrección: Ibaratane del Grande Diablo

To do: violently murder Lynn for scarring me.
Then, put myself out of my misery.
The only way to truly free myself...

I feel like some elements are a little redundant when they could easily be repurposed as dual elements or sub-specialisations. This was also one of my gripes with the gazillions of Daraiian elements, because a lot of them could easily be fulfilled by other roles.
-Laser can be a sub of Light
-Illusion can be a mix of Light and Sound
-Plasma can be a sub of Fire or Electricity (a glaring omission)
-Thunder is a sub of Sound
-Zero and Null seem kind of the same, don't see why someone who doesn't have elemental affinity couldn't qualify for Null.
-Sun is just a Star.
-Combining Gravity, Moon and all these other celestial body things would be nice because otherwise, they seem really niche. Gravity can just be a sub of that then.
-Animal can be a sub of Bio.
-Shadow and Darkness seem kinda the same and can be subs of Light.
-Ice can be a sub of Water.
-Leaf can be a sub of Bio.

I have no idea what Mend and Anomaly are supposed to be. But look, I just shortened your list by at least 10 elements, and it becomes much more simple.

If Chaos is anything like Blah, or if Anomaly means outlier powers, then you can just merge Paper into that. There's nothing for acid either, and Poison isn't acid necessarily, so a Chemical element would be cool.

In general, you don't really need to have a lot of different elements to fill niches. You take large, overarching categories and make niches within them. This also has a positive side effect of diversity - two people with the element of Light could do completely different things with it.


Just my two rupees though.

Hopefully @Kim can answer that.

Mend equals healing.
The notes Kim sent with @Ginevra says its alt name is "Heal".

The basic spell for Null is named "Void" - and Aether's basic spell is "Quint" (from "Quintessence") and perfectly has five letters.

Zero = unable to control elements, thus neutral towards all elements.
The elemental resistances are so incomplete, they're BLANK.

Chrono's basic spell is Paradox, though.

Probably a better idea to rename Null to Void because otherwise it gets confusing.

Quint is like squint, lol. How about Ether as the element name so it's also five letters :P
I kid, I kid.

Now that I think about it, Dream could also get subbed under Psychic, cause it's still part of your mind.

Metal can also be a sub of Earth.
Mend should really be less of an element and more of spells from various different elements.
Actually you know what who am I to be giving suggestions on this lol I don't know anything I'm just a bumbling fool
but I will use this list at some point:

Air
Anomaly (Paper, Chaos)
Biological (Animal, Leaf)
Celestial (Stars (Sun), Moon, Gravity, Space)
Chemical (Poison, Acid)
Chrono
Data
Earth (Metal)
Electricity (Plasma)
Ether
Fey
Spirit (Emotion, Heart)
Light (Darkness/Shadow, Illusion, Laser)
Mana
Nether (Fire, Lava)
Psychic (Dream, Illusion)
Sound (Illusion, Thunder)
Ultima
Water (Ice)
Void

To be fair, you or Kim could potentially build an entire Lunar Game based around the manipulation of that one element.

Couldn't you just use the Matter element to become Purple Karjam God and kill everything in your way?

Naturally, Karjam shall come up with a convoluted explanation that allows PK to stay overpowered. He will then insult you because you pointed out that PK isn't unfairly overpowered, rendering everyone else useless.

Karjam shall laugh, tell Yui that she lacks keen observational skills and claim that zanpakuto have no effect on PK. Then PK shall kill her in one hit.
