↳ As a result of modification in his infancy, his emotional development has been significantly impacted by his power. Paradoxically, his extraordinary ability has decreased his self-worth. It is believed that is due to the cognitive dissonance created by this ability. Firstly, it externalizes success. Secondly, it creates a disconnect between the conscious brain and the subconscious brain. In addition, it appears as though excessive use of the ability can disrupt the subject's hormones.

As a self-defense mechanism, the subject seeks external validation from both the lab staff and other subjects. He has shown highly altruistic tendencies, even when it is self-destructive. However, the subject can be manipulative. While he can appear well meaning, this merely a tactic to receive attention, and if it is fails, he may attempt other attention-seeking behavior. However, he typically avoids direct confrontations.

I normally wait a bit longer before dropping an RP, but another RP has caught my attention. So I am dropping my interest.
I am interested.
Cob, the Wandering Dwarf
@Dealdric - Deruga

The dwarf was standing in front of a rock around his own size, when he turned around as he heard someone call out to him, and he then instinctively reach for the hammer that he had brought from the village. However, as he turned around, he saw that it was just an unarmed human, and so he placed his weapon back on the ground. He had never seen a human before, but he had the stories about them. Despite this being his first encounter with a human, he didn't let it show.

The dwarf just turned around, and returned to what he was tending to, shouting back, "What do you want." He was trying to grow some of the moss that he brought from the village, but for some reason it was not growing as fast as it should.


The emergence of this fear spiral had deeply concerned Ferron. As far as he could remember, he had never encountered anything of the sort. However, memory was not very reliable within this realm. As he was considering how to proceed, Crom entered through the door of the temple with a few other dwarves following behind him.

Crom approached first and asked, "We would like you to train us how to defend our home from attack."

Ferron paused for a moment, this was sudden and he had barely any time to see how the aura has changed Crom, however it was a sensible idea. He answered, "I have considered this possibility, and I do believe it would be a reasonable idea. However I can not train you yet, as there are preparations I need to attend to. I will gather you once again when they are completed."

Crom looked back the other dwarves, and nodded, "As you wish, Lord Ferron."

Ferron had more than enough power to very quickly complete the preparations instantly, however he believe it would be better if the dwarves attended to the needs of their own village. In addition, he wanted additional time to see how the aura has changed Crom.
Also, just a friendly reminder : We are in the stone age. Steel does not exist. Ferron has created bronze, but he has not created steel.
For people investigating the region around the the spire, they would find a small piece of silver from the dwarven cloak was torn, and there would probably be trace amounts of mercury in the area where the dwarf popped up from the ground.
I don't know about y'all, but I am ready for Hayim, Lord of Fear and Terror.
Ferron was sitting his chair, pondering about his next move. As he was deep in thought, something begin to tickle the back of his mind. It was as he had almost remembered something, but did not know what.

The god closed his eye, and allowed his perception to wander. He was suddenly pulled towards the north. As he was concreting, his own thoughts betrayed him, "What if all I create turns to ash. My great castle lost to the void. My great works demolished and defamed. My children killed or enslaved by a wicked god. That I will never pierce the veil of the core, or perhaps worse I will and find nothing. What if the veil of the core is to protect the world from some great horror. What if all shall fade away, and I will be alone in the black canvas of the void, forever trapped within nothingness itself."

He paused, and allowed his vision to return to the dwarven village. There he looked out of the open temple doors, and saw his children hard at work. He cast his doubts out of his mind, and refocused himself, he begin to internally monologue to ensure himself, and to spite the influence that had slipped into his mind, "I am a cautious god, but I am not a fearful god. I shall defend my home. I shall defend my art. I shall defend my children. I will first learn of the secret of the core, and then once I know it is safe, I will claim my prize. I shall stand against entropy itself I need to, and perhaps I will fail. But I will not fall easily."

As he was casting out the fearful thoughts from his mind, he found the source of his distress. It had seem as some divine influence had been affecting his ore, and it had partially seeped into his mind. He would need to guard his mind more carefully going forward, but such a large amount of ore being influence was concerning. He removed his influence over the rare metal, and as he did, he felt as though it began to change right as his perception left it.

Ferron was left in a dilemma. He did not feel as though it were safe to leave his dwarves, for however a brief window, as they would be left within the dark and be vulnerable to divine meddling. However, if he left this along, it is possible that it will become a greater threat.

He summoned a small council of dwarves, and explained the situation to the group. The dwarves were left speechless, unable to find an answer to the corundum. All except for one, Crom, the strongest of the dwarves who answered, "I shall go out of the gates myself and see what the problem is."
The other dwarves immediately rejected the proposal, but Ferron silenced the other dwarves, and paused to consider the proposal, "So be it, sending a scout seems most reasonable, however you will not use the gate, and you will listen to my instructions carefully. I need to prepare the tools that you will require for your journey. Wait for me in the village plaza."

All of the village gathered around Crom, most treating this as though it were his funeral, but Crom was excited. Unlike Cob, Crom loved the village, but there was an appeal to the outside world.

Crom did not even notice the other dwarves growing silent as Ferron arrived. When he did, he immediately stopped his boasting. Ferron glared at him, "If you wish to return safely, it is urgent that you follow my instructions. I do not know what threat we face, or even if there is a threat, however something has influenced the metal within a region in the north without my permission. This must be investigated."

The first tool that Crom was presented with was a rod with the forked end, Ferron explained, "This is a divining rod, and I use to enhance my own perception. This is the tool that you will use in order to inspect the region. It will guide you to where you need to go, and will also guide back home. You are to use the divining rod to guide you to the location until it begans to shake, at which point you are to immediately stop. Once you are done with your task, whisper a prayer to me and I will use it to lead you back."

He then presented Crom with a silver cloak, the god looked at the dwarf sternly, "This your protection. This cloak was quickly made, but was designed to protect you from whatever may be causing this distress. You are not to draw closer to the source than you need to as I do not believe it will be able to handle much."

Then he handed Crom the final tool, an amulet. One of the dwarves asked if Crom would need to food for his journey. Ferron chuckled, "This will be how he travels. This is a quicksilver amulet. It will grant him an ability that I possess. By tapping the center, a thin layer of mercury will cover his body and allow him to quickly move through the earth itself. Once you arrive at your location, you shall look above the earth, and look around in all directions and report what you see. Do I make myself clear in all of my instructions."

Crom nodded, and after having a quick meal within the village. He tapped the amulet, and begin to walk into a cave wall, quickly approaching his destination. It was not long before the divining rod began to shake, and the dwarf popped his head out of the ground. He saw the crater and its desolation and the area outside of its radius. While everything on the surface was a new sight, the desolate region somehow seemed wrong and scary. Though, something about him resented that fear. He thought to himself that he was not scared, and began to move closer to the source.

He immediately regretted his choice and his fear become immense. He immediately begin to move through the ground towards home. He did not even have to think about his next action, he felt fear and so he ran to the safety of the colony and his god. He did not notice that his cloak was torn.

Once he returned to the village, he had found all the dwarves waiting for him in the plaza. A lot of relief passed through the crowd as they saw him safely returned. He immediately approached Ferron and handed him the divining rod, and told him what he saw. Ferron asked him if he encountered any trouble. Crom answered no, but Ferron had noticed that his cloak was slightly torned. But he decided to leave it be for the moment, but he will keep an eye on the adventurous dwarf. However his mind immediately began to think about how he should proceed.

I do have an idea of how I want to interact with the fear-spiral, but it makes for sense for Ferron to just randomly leave his dwarfs to explore the north for a bit. However, something did get my interest. The fear-spiral invoked fear in plants, and I am presuming that plants being scared is not a normal thing with this world, and is a result of the fear-spiral.

Now, this question involves a lot of things you probably can't outright say, but I need to ask the question in full context for it make sense. The only thing I need to answer to is can Ferron sense it because it is messes with his domain. (Full Context: The spiral can apparently cause things normally incapable of fear to be scared. Does this effect apply to the ore below the ground, and if it does, can Ferron sense something strange occurring because something strange is occurring with metal.)

I don't intend on competing over the fear domain, but I do think I can do some interesting story stuff with the fear-spiral.
Is it right to presume that even far-away gods will be able to sense it, and have some understanding that is emitting some form of fear aura.
