Let's get on with it then.
Do pm when ready.
Ah nah, don’t want to work on this over PM for the sake of my inbox and cause I wanna leave things open for input.
Anyway my rough ideas right now is this:
For the most part people will be able to craft additional weapons (and Armor) for their arsenal. This is because weapon switching will be a thing for Togabito. At max I think only 5 extra weapons would be acceptable but we can play around with the exact numbers.
There’s also the whole ting of weapons styles. Each style would focus around certain types of weapons (swords, fists, guns/bows, etc.). To start you’d only be able to use one style and one weapon, but eventually you could use all the styles and multiple weapons.
Weapon would start out at basic levels, but could be upgraded to have better qualities. Like a higher grade sword would cut better than a lower grade one, or a higher grade one could be modified to have elemental properties while lower level ones can’t. Additionally the idea of “Demon Arms” which will be unique weapons that you can only gain from demon contracts. These weapons would have the element, traits and abilities of whatever demon their tied to.
So for example Ifrit’s Blade, would be a flaming sword and has the “Molten Metal” trait. That could be something where each slash leaves behind a few bits of molten stew behind with each slash that burns the victim over a short time, or does extra damage with each hit. Then it could have one or two abilities as well. And perhaps people could only have one or two of these weapons at a time.
Additionally with the Acapella Style (fully explained in the spoiler below), people would create their own Devil Arm, which would essentially just be a Zanpakutou. However since they don’t have the option of changing their weapons like you can if you use other styles, they could add the powers of other demons to it, and switch to those instead.
As far as custom armor’s go it would be roughly the same, minus the abilities part. Instead it would be much like the suits Flux was talking about in the new Seireitei thread.
And uh finally is from the discussion from the RP discussion about uninvited quests to get materials/ money to make the weapons rather than people just making them for free.
Small edit here: I think the ultimate vision in seeing for this is this. High flexibility and customization options, and the idea of sharing/borrowing power from other demons. Either for weapons, or for personal use this is something really wanna pull off cause it could be really awesome in practice.
