Can Re:Phrase work on human beings and Invaders?
Re:Phrase works on human beings and Invaders.
If so, to what extent of that detail can she read.
It'd be highly ineffective against Aliens Invaders though. I was hoping the extra-bit in the extras was elaborative enough?
Basically, I imagined, she would be able to read something, but couldn't do anything with it. Like reading a manual in a foreign language that doesn't even use our alphabet.
Fellow humans, on the other hand, are more like an open book. I know this sounds eeeeehhh and meeeehhh BUT Rin Rin-Rin isn't the kind of gal to go around and use her ability on all the things just for the sake of information. That's not her style.
Also I just wanna put emphasis again on her having to purposefully wanting to know a certain bit of information before activating Re:Phrase to get that information. So it's not like she uses it to buff someone and suddenly she finds out that someone's real name isn't the name they have been using all along.
Pretty weak reasoning, coming from a stranger such as I, I know, but it is what it is.
Bottom line though, I never even thought/intended for this 'information reading' until I was about to write down my power idea and it just made sense to include it for the sake of keeping it coherent. Because she has to see that stuff to be able to alter it. It's not really a part of her power I was intending to explore much anyway. Just more fluuffff. Rin-Rin's not intelligent enough to make good use of it anyway <3.
Furthermore, elaborate on how this ability buffs people. Is she just bending reality piece by piece or using PSI of some kind.
Eeeehhh. Is there really much of a difference? I haven't thought too much about that! Basically, I was thinking of her temporary tampering with the values of someone else. Like their strength, or perception! And by getting to know people better she can have a greater effect too, thanks to Resonance. This basically serves that she isn't able to just go around and modify everybody and their mother as she pleases. Even against a Human ENEMY, she wouldn't be able to do much because being enemies usually implies not getting along that well in the first place.
So yeah, it serves buffing. While she could 'theoretically' debuff stuff, it doesn't really make too much sense to use it like that.
If I had to put some numerical values on it, to maybe but it in a better perspective example. Say, you can buff a stat by 20 for 50 mana, but you can also debuff an enemy by 2 for 50 mana.
To elaborate. That ability is too close to low-key Reality Warping powers for us to allow it without better explanations. After you clear that up we can consider any necessary tweaks.
I know that, on paper, her ability sounds rather powerful. I need muh chuuni fluff But here I was hoping I have put enough limitations on it to make it a-okay! Hopefully, explaining to Windel made it clearer.
Re:Phrase works on humans, yah, Windel. It's part of her history.
I just wanna add do this. I'm very well aware I even underlined temporary further up. Yet, suddenly here, in her past bio, I went full 'permanently'. I just included it for a bit of comedic fun incident and some silly reason to have her be smol.
If I had to be more technical(urgh), however, essentially she's at, like, 'maximum Resonance' with herself to allow such a substantial change without just outright killing herself. And maybe, just maybe, because Anime a cruel twist of fate thought it'd be nice to punish her and keep it like that.
That scared her enough that in a "do-or-die", with the 'do' being 'use your Psychic Drive on yourself', situation she would just die. If this is of any problem, however, I don't mind changing it.
