@Ruler IncOh I did. I like to think my dialogue is what brought things down to "god awful" status.

What's the plan from here? Should we continue posting per usual until you head out for basic?

@Ruler IncThat alternative might work for the best; it'd be easier to pick it back up. Do you know when you head out exactly?

I guess in the meantime I'll update the OP and NPCs. Maybe write stuff for the Watchers.

I almost forgot, I wrote an explanation on how abstractions can transfer and shit.

The Awakened can transfer their abstractions to other Awakened. They can do these two ways; if they have a strong emotional bond with another Awakened they can willingly transfer it to another Awakened (or perhaps a Blind), or if they die the Abstraction can be taken by another Awakened. It's also possible for an Awakened to transfer a small fraction of their abilities to another person. Once they have the ability their sigil will appear on them. For another Awakened to use an abstraction that does not belong to them, they have to understand and channel the emotions that created said abstraction. If they don't understand the emotions they will not be able to properly use the abstraction to it's fullest strength. It is entirely possible that an Awakened can have many different abstractions. However, the Awakened are only capable of using one abstraction at a time. An Awakened can only share their powers with another Awakened or counterpart.

It's possible for there to be what is called a "Collective-Awakening". It's an uncommon phenomenon where multiple people Awaken around the same time in the same vicinity and they each share a piece of the same power. However, it won't occur every time there's a group of people Awakening. Each member of a collective-Awakening gain their own "primary" abstraction but a far weaker secondary powers belonging to each member of the group. However, sometimes collective Awakenings will not gain a power belonging to each member of the group but an abstraction reflecting what they think of the person (Such as gaining a speed based abstraction from someone they believe is impulsive). This will only occur if there's a great sense of familiarity with a member in the Collective. They gain a special mental link to each member of the group that allows them to share memories and see each other's auras through walls. However, they have a special ability that other Awakened do not and are capable of using these abstractions without understanding anyone else's emotions. If they gain the abstractions of the other Collective members they will be able to use them at full strength.

A question that may arise is what would happen if the Awakened's person changes? That part of them that the abstraction formerly reflected is gone? It's simple, and it's known as a Second Awakening. If a person undergoes a great personal change they will still retain their previous abstraction until they experience the second moment of powerful emotion and their abstraction will change to represent their new self. They'll still hold onto a previous piece of their abstraction as everyone still retains a piece of themselves, but it'll be so weak that it would be nowhere near the strength of the original.


I also rewrote the said lore bible in case you all wanna see it... well, I'll show you some parts bc there's some heavy spoilers here and there.
