In an effort to best utilize my greater mood win, I'm seeking assistance with some of the messaging. We have some very talented wordsmiths out there, so any suggestions will be heavily considered, with possibly some rewards for any ideas that are used or that spark some creativity.
Item: a suit of black alloy armor
Goal: I'd like to play off the idea of "shadowdeath" armor through illusion.
Think shadowy tendrils, shadows, dark essence, etc.
The character has a FWI teleporter that uses the following: 7. | Shadowy Tendrils |---|---|---| 1ST PERSON | Shadowy tendrils rise from the ground and wrap around your legs. The dark wisps quickly engulf your body, rendering your surroundings pitch black. As quickly as the world disappeared, however, the darkness vanishes and you realize you are not where you once were. DEPARTURE | Shadowy tendrils rise from the ground and wrap around Wyrom's legs as they quickly engulf his entire body. The shadows quickly retreat back into the surroundings, leaving no trace of Wyrom. ARRIVAL | Shadowy tendrils rise from the ground and quickly coalesce into a humanoid form. As quickly as they appeared, the shadows retreat back into the surroundings, leaving Wyrom in their place.
I'd like the armor to compliment the teleporter with similar messaging.
I need to design 2 verbs (Rub/Clench), but I believe those are just the activators and they don't have to be in the messaging. Plus an ambient message.
