Duskruin Leak #1 TENTACALINDR

GM Retser gets the first Duskruin leak and spills the beans on the new TENTACALINDR (It’s Retser, pretty sure the caps are required) parasitic, abusive, sentient … tentacle things that will be featured at Duskruin. There’s loads of details with more spoilers posted Saturday in a newer messsage in the thread:

Subj: Parasitic Weapons, Coming to a Duskruin near you!
Do you feel lonely? Have you ever wanted to have your very own, abusive, sentient being who takes the form of tentacles and sucks your life away?

Well look no further, introducing TENTACALINDR. The new dating app for successful, evil people!

Swipe right on an assortment of equipment and choose your very own friend! You can also swipe left, but you might make it angry.

Hey, these gloves look kind of CUTE. Look at that, they have a picture with a dog! Ew, what is that? Gross. *SWIPE LEFT*

Hey, what about these gloves? They are leather, dark, and would probably feel good against my skin. OMG HE LIKES TENTACLE-CHILDREN!!!11! *SWIPE RIGHT*

You pick up some dark leather gloves.

wear glove
As you draw the leather gloves closer, severeal tentacles gently crawl up your arm. You feel a slight pinch as a weak sounding voice enters your mind, “… feed me…. wear me again and we will begin our journey together.”

Well, that is awkward. Maybe I got the wrong app. Oh well, LETS KEEP GOING!

As you draw your leather gloves close, thick, viscous crimson tentacles lash out and affix themselves to your flesh. They writhe and contort as they burrow beneath your flesh, pulling the gloves with them. The tentacles spiral around themselves as they slowly reform into leather gloves. Your gloves burn as you feel it draw upon your body.

An intoxicating voice whispers, “Pray to me…finish our bond…”

pray gloves
The leather gloves shake violently. A foreign sounding voice enters your mind, “You think you are capable of wielding one such as I? Try this again to begin a journey of pain and torment. Should you prove resilient I will reward you with strength that is not known in this time.”
[Repeat this command within the next 30 minutes to finish your bond.]

pray gloves
Several crimson tentacles spiral outward from your leather gloves before plunging within your flesh. You feel something foreign traveling through your body, every point it contacts weakening. You break into a sweat as you are forced down to your knees. A single tentacle snakes upward in front of your face, resting at eye level. The tentacle’s tip rapidly sharpens into a point as it strikes! You feel a sudden rush of pain and emptiness before a harsh voice enters your mind, “… and so our journey together begins, foreigner. Raise me when you are ready.” You feel strength return to your battered body as you catch your breath, the ground beneath now slick with your blood.

raise gloves
You stretch out your left arm, watching several crimson tentacles spread out from your leather gloves. They painfully burrow under your skin, spiraling up and down your arm. Gradually they move into the palm of your hand as they begin to wrap around themselves. A sentient voice whispers, “I took what I needed to materialize, stranger. Blood of my blood, body of my body, our wills are one.” The undulating crimson liquid in the palm of your hand rapidly hardens as it stretches upward. You watch as the crimson half-crystallized liquid from your gloves slowly takes shape into a crimson staff. Beads of crimson liquid drop from its form as the last of your staff crystallizes.
Roundtime: 3 sec.

Uhhhhhhhh…. SUPER LIKING THIS BAE.

Retser, ASGM

TLDR: The gloves (We’ll call it the host item) contain a parasite that can be called upon, at the cost of your health, to summon a weapon. These support just about any weapon type. Yes, even UAC.

More details to come.

No, I was shooting for Eddie Brock and Venom with his Symbiote… but a weapon. So I guess mix that with prototype.

Is the weapon base locked into the glove or does one glove make any weapon type?

Also, can it be bonded or sancted to?

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain,

Weapon base is tied to the glove.
It can be bonded (Paladin or Warrior), sancted, enchanted (Difficult), ensorcelled(Difficult).

Fairly similar, they call weapons from their blood (scythes and such).

Either way, stuff looks interesting. Thanks for making more stuff.

Are you able to pass the glove around to do multiple of these things? Such as enchanting and ensorcelling? Or is it like the weapon tattoos where it’s tied to the wearer?

Most of us first ventured in Elanthia when neither we nor the interwebs were fully-grown adults. I think many of us stick with Gemstone because in some sense it keeps our 14 year-old selves alive, in all their wonder, zeal, and general hyperactivity.

I think maybe Retser is doing a better job of that than most of us.

(Also, these look awesome.)

“severeal”

Is this supposed to read several? Or sever-able? I don’t get it.

Honestly the gloves sound symbiotic to me reading the description, because they help you out and you help them out with blood (our wills are one…) A parasite never helps you, like a brain worm.

SPOILERS

The weapon itself has several bonding tiers, we’ll call them affinity tiers. The weapon has 3 unlock points, each will allow for a a higher tier of affinity.

The weapon costs blood to summon. The weapon has a blood upkeep. After around 30 minutes the weapon will go into a dormant state and require a blood infusion to restore its power.

Blood is the currency that this weapon requires to further its bond and use its power.

The base weapon will start at 4x.

The weapon is held weightlessly within the host item and it stores any lightening done to the weapon.

Lets talk abilities!

The standard weapon will have a form of slashing flares known as blood flares. This will cost health every time they flare. These can be turned on and off and will grow in strength as your bond does.

While bonding to your weapon, the weapon will fight its owner until they reach a certain affinity. This comes in the form of a “retaliation” flare. This can happen rarely on attack.

After reaching a certain affinity, the weapon gains the ability known as parasitic bond. This will allow you to trigger the weapon to draw health from your living enemies upon attack based on the damage dealt. This will have a short reuse period. The weapon can also learn at a higher affinity to do this automatically when the wielders health is below a certain threshold. This has a longer reuse period. This ability grows in power as your affinity does.

At the max affinity the weapons gain the ability to call upon the ability known as the perfect host. This boosts the wielders strength, con, dex, AS, DS, and damage padding by a factor of 10. This will have a longer cooldown.

If someone who isn’t the owner attempts to wield the weapon, they will have a very bad time.

AGON42: They can be passed around but not used by people who aren’t the owner. There are some points where the weapon will hurt those who attempt this. So, for the purpose of services, you are good!
