What's left to be touched?
Finalizing contracts between Togabito and rules for that.
Some final adjustments for Devil Arms and Acapella.
Oh then building the hellfire and demon list.
Finally just finishing off the CBS.
Edit: New idea regarding Devil Arms and Acapella vs. Sin Echo/Resonance.
Since the general idea is for Devil Arms to be an alternative to Echo/Resonance I think the best way to handle this is by having two breeds of Togabito.
Demon’s Blood & Devil Gene Togabito:
Given the nature of Hell, not all of its denizens are alike.
Despite their differences, all Togabito can be classified as one of two different types. The first are demons, while the second are devils. While many would believe and assume that there’s no difference between the two, the reality is quite contrary. How one’s type is decided at birth, or so it is believed. As all beings are capable of sin, the ability to develop either Demon’s Blood or the Devil gene in inherent in all beings by nature.
While the exact science behind becoming either type is a complete mystery, though it is believed that sin attracts the essence of both Devils and Demons and what type a soul ultimately becomes is dependent on which of the two your soul happens to make contact with first. Despite the mystery and conjecture, what is certain is that all of those sent to Hell have a 50/50 chance of being one or the other. Further more there is no being in existence with both Demon’s Blood or the Devil Gene.
Demons are the true and only infernal beings, with hell being their land by birthright. These foul creatures are those birthed by the abstract concepts of sin given tangible form. Demons are all the physical manifestations of their unique core sins and as such represent sin itself in some regards. These creatures use the power of cursing, the act of giving voice to their own sin by literally speaking evil. This allows them the unique abilities known as Sin Echo and Sun Resonance.
Devilis are former angels, those that have fallen from heaven and corrupted by sin. While not natural residents of Hell, Demons have recognized their descent and have given them right to reside in The Inferno. Where Devils differ from Demons is that their power originates from the corruption of their once holy of divine essence. This essence is sealed within various objects (almost always weapons), known as Devil Arms. In short Devil Arms act as the vessels for a Devil’s Power. While they cannot use the power of the Echo or Resonance, they have a whole separate power unique to them. These abilities exclusive to Devils are known as “Devil Trigger” and “Devil Breaker”. (Names tentative).
Devil Trigger is the act of awakening, or triggering the activation of the corrupted essence sealed within their Devil Arms. As Devil Arms have intense elemental affinity, evoking the power of Devil Trigger causes a torrent of that weapons elemental energy to be released. An techniques a Devil may possess in their arsenal will be influenced by this surge of elemental power. However such great power comes at a cost. This surge of elemental power is unruly and not easily controlled. As such there are limits to how this power can be use. Practically speaking, this power only allows a Devil to add elemental influence to otherwise natural abilities.
Devil Breaker is act of breaking the barriers or in essence the rules surrounding elemental power. As Devils are beings of corruption, they have discovered a way to corrupt even their own natural power and abilities. This causes their natural elemental affinity to change entirely. While this new corruption of power is quite strong, this comes with a few caveats. The first is, wielding elements unnatural to their core is an immensely difficult task. As such they cannot derive abilities from these new elements, at best, they can only alter the elemental properties of their pre-existing abilities. Secondly in order to make use of additional elemental Devils must seek the essence of particularly powerful Infernal beings whose elemental affinity is peerless. Typically these are the strongest Demons or even Devils of a particular element. Gaining their power often requires defeating them in combat or earning enough of the rot respect through contacts.
