Rasen-Shuriken!

I'm probably the worst addict around...

If you haven't noticed already, my faction is actually a bit inspired by Bleach, my first name for the Void Realms was actually Soul Society... *Shudders* I'm so glad I changed that...

The Megrim Faction

Known As – The Scavengers
Capital – Intellavarium
Symbosl – The Unfinished Circle, the Eye of Omega
Related Colors – Dark Grey, Electric Yellow

Background

“After the events of Isabel’s War, scientists from the Silver Cities experimented with the combining of magic and machine. After scores of subjects were lost and attaining a huge budget in a colossal deficit, the scientists absolved to make one final attempt. The result was the Darkmarg, a catalyst that binds machines to souls. This creation soon seized the scientist’s total devotion, and their families worried. They reported their actions to the Circle of Nine and asked for formal abolition. Seeing this breakthrough as a grave threat, Zehir sent out a dispatch of Mages to arrest the hindrances. They found the scientists mangled corpses, and no trace of their failed subjects.

Soon after, the reports of “unknown creatures of metallic complexion” were heard from as far as the Unicorn Empire. They had been stealing gardening equipment, cannonade, and weapons. Oddly, no human, livestock, or pet was harmed.

Several years passed as the Circle tried to hush what had happened in the Silver Cities. Then, a grand explosion rocked the lands beyond Ranaar. It was heard that mechanical beasts were converging on a meteorite that had crashed into the steppes. This so-called meteorite seethed with arcane energy. With it, all the bots were filled with vigor, and the religion of the Megrim was formed.

The source of all the strength to these automatons, the Darkmarg exists deep within an obsidian stronghold, guarded by those present at its creation. Few of the Megrim flock to seek its council, as few have ever seen its presence except those who guard it.”

Explanations – Degenerate Circuitry

Defiance – Fails to take its turn.
Random Attack – Attacks an enemy at random
Short Circuit – Powers down for the remainder of battle after using a special ability.
Meltdown – Explodes to damage all surrounding units then powers down.
Systems Failure – Fails to respond to any further commands and wanders about on its own.

Universal to all Megrim Units – Hive Mind – This unit is connected directly to the Darkmarg, and cannot ever fall under the enemy’s control.

Hero Class – Liege: Empowered with the advanced magics, Lieges are the vanguard of the Darkmarg. They act as conduits to channel energy to the Darkmarg, and thus increase its power. The higher the Hero Level, the more the Darkmarg gets energy, and thus the stronger the Lieges troops. Hence the racial ability “Energize”.
_____________________________
Energize – The Darkmarg’s sheer intelligence and power can be transferred to the Lieges, and then to its troops. As such, units have higher combat skills in battle. The Energize skill also reduces the risk of Degeneration; that is to fall completely useless in battle, explode out of overload, or just simple refuse orders. Any unit with Degenerate Circuitry has a chance to fail in tandem to their type of Degeneration. The higher the tier, the more dangerous it is to use them without Energize.

Basic Energize – All Tier 1 & 2 Programs are fully active, and they have less chance to Degenerate.

Advanced Energize – Tiers 3-5 have fully active Programs and less Degenerations. Tiers 6-7 have smaller chances to Degenerate.

Expert Energize – All Tiers have minimal chance to Degenerate. Tiers 6 & 7 have all racial programs active.

Ultimate Energize – All Megrim Units have twice the damage capacity and no Tier can Degenerate.

Racial Perks

Shock Inducer – Any Megrim unit subjected to Air Magic has the equivalent amount of damage transferred into additional Lightning damage on their next strike.

Dampen Magic – All enemy magic has its effectiveness reduced by 20%.

Reactor Overload – Activated ability: At a relative cost of mana, the Liege can inflict energy damage to a single stack in combat, and that stack gains Vulnerability to Magic.

Uber Skill – Antimaterial: The Hero can kill send off a barrage of random spells at the cost of losing one level of his Energize skill.
__________________
Racial Abilites – Programs

The Liege may buy additional programming to his systems. Each program grants new skills to his troops. However, they do not work unless the hero has attained the necessary Energize skill and can sustain them with his mana. The programs range from granting additional attack to reducing damage. They are rare to come by in their Racial Building, the Darkmarg’s Library. Only a few are released per week, and their’s costs are relative to the hero’s level. The higher the level, the cheaper the programs get, for the Darkmarg’s magic weaves through the Liege more easily.

Racial Building: Darkmarg’s Library

Heroes

Campaign

Darkmarg – “The core and mind behind all units tied to the Megrim, Darkmarg is a being that transcends this reality. Its mind is like a collaboration of all tied to it. If ever it was in danger, it would send out Drones, dangerous suicidal beings bent on the protection of the Darkmarg.”

Specialization – Drone Guards – If the army’s numbers fall below 50%, the Darkmarg can send out Drones that equal in power to the number of fallen units.

Vikalia – “Crowned Viceroy of the Megrim, Vikalia is a dangerous being. His brainpower is limited only by the favor of the Darkmarg. If he is silent for too long, he starts computing random scenarios in battle and saves them to his memory. In battle, this comes as a decisive advantage.”

Specialization – Precognition – Whenever an enemy uses a spell in battle, initiative of units increases 1% for every hero level.

Single Player

Sigurd – “A staunch being of great pride, Sigurd takes his fighting skills very personal. If he is bested, he will go into a frantic depression, but will come to his senses, not by his own will, but by his memory core being dumped by the Darkmarg. This erratic attitude makes him a great figure for those who take battle just as seriously.”

Specialization – Insanity Patron – All Gear Knights and their upgrades gain 1 attack per three hero levels.

Valkion – “One of the few female personas in the Megrim, Valkion takes her elevated position very haughtily. She sees all other female Megrim as inferior and unimportant, but she is subdued by the glares of the higher men. With this attitude, she has soared past her fellows to become a great general. With her experience, the power of her spells are greater against females.”

Specialization – Female Hunter – Any spell cast against a female unit has its damage or spellpower increased 1 for every 5 hero levels.

Xaxir – “Silent and shifty, Xaxir is more than what he lets slip. He is a master of seeking and destroying, a specialty of another machine. With this increased scope, Xaxir build better and stronger espionage units, most of which are killed by the Darkmarg in fear of their power. Nevertheless, Xaxir continues his own creating with his insight.”

Specialization – Seeker – All Seekers and their upgrades have increased ranged damage, 1% per 2 hero levels.

Chalkos – “A greatly enhanced prototype for a new type of Liege, Chalkos’s armor makes him the envy of the other Lieges. His plates can withstand intense heat, cold, and can conduct energy away from his internal parts. He can withstand numerous direct blows from any weapon. He gains many enemies due to his armor, but its more of an empty threat, since any attempt on his life results in miserable failure. He knows how to avoid conflict.

Specialization – Impregnable – The Hero can guard a unit in battle and reduce its damage as long as he continues his idleness.

Zarpados – “A scholar of sorts, Zarpados peddles in useless information. At least, that’s what its dubbed before something happens when this trivial knowledge is required. Zarpados has a gift for this insight, and shares it with anyone, considering it originally has no importance. But, in spite of this, Zarpados gains several followers, called the Solicitors. With this cult, Zarpados has informants everywhere.

Specialization – Eyes in the Dark – Activated from the Adventure Map, this Hero can reveal a spot anywhere on the map for a cost relative to its distance away in Mana.

Ivanderbar – “A crazed and respectfully eccentric crafter, Ivanderbar is a legendary creator of Gargoyles, beings built for the soul of an animal. His laboratory is lined with sinister instruments, but he’s as kind as he is insane. However, its has been recorded that some “accidental shutdowns of suspected eavesdroppers” have been reported to the Darkmarg, but, being in its good favor, the Darkmarg has never confronted Ivanderbar.

Specialization – Iron Mason – All Gargoyles and their upgrades have increased hitpoints, 1 per three hero levels.

Grognomor – “A frenetically adept Liege at the Destructive Arts, Grognomor uses his powers to eliminate choice enemies of the Megrim. His liberation tactics are, needless to say, chaotic, but the Darkmarg cares more for the result not the process. Grognomor, being a savant at the elemental magics, creates rifts of instability as he attacks in battle.

Specialization – Ripping Attack – Each hero attack has a chance to deal extra elemental damage to the target and surrounding units. Chance is 5% per five hero levels.

Khadmatir – “A mental surgeon and endoskeletal expert, Khadmatir is the High Surgeon of the Megrim. Khadmatir knows just where every bolt, wire, and cog is supposed to be and how its supposed to twitch, undulate, or revolve. With this expertise, his Allegion of Mechanics, the school he founded, teaches the fine arts of the Megrims healing practice.”

Specialization – Healing Touch – All Mechanists and their upgrades gain 5 points of Repair for every 3 hero levels.

I will begin judging tonight, and this time the scores (and why) will be posted alongside each faction.  This week I am going to be specifically rough in my scores, as the contest gets on in weeks the criteria will be more strict.


Sanctum - With changes  9.5/10 Amazing stuff.  I loved it.  

High Peaks - Mvass, you are a bloody genius.  9/10.  I really enjoyed the town.


Peak -   8.5/10 That special I either am not understanding, or something.  Just can not get past it.

Hidden Lookout - History still a bit of a dark point for the town.  7/10  (sorry)

Dark Church - Little more story/background and you would have been hard to beat.  7/10 (sorry)

Shurinkar - After looking over your town again, I still have to give you a .  9/10 (tie for 1st place?!)

The Megrim Faction - Sith you are always a genious.  Loved everything about the faction.  There can only be one winner this week, but more then a few of you deserve special mention.  9.5/10.  (Sorry)

Asylum - As I said..a masterpiece.  I loved your entry.    9/10 (Really sorry).

The Cyclone - Somehow, managed to improve on perfection.  Can't give any higher score tho.  10/10  

Abyss - Adrius ... any other week and you would have gotten first place.  It was truely great.  9.5/10.

See now I have a problem, however.  I think the early judging is a BAD idea.  Basically it has gotten to the point where I am telling people how to get 9's and 10's.  Which sorta defeats the point of a contest.  Giving advice for the NEXT weeks entry is great, for the current entry not so much imo.  Regardless though, somebody else will be judging from this point forward.

I think we need more judges. Not that mytical does a bad job by judging this, but two oppinions is always better than one. And besides, when we have two judges, Mysty can join in as well. (his points will count double, as only one out of two judges can judge his entries; ditto ofr the other judge)


What do you think?

Coincidence? I think not!!!!
