    That moment when you have an idea for a Sir Launfal sheet but the story's portrayal of Guinevere is very ooc and the guy ends up living in Avalon with his fairy paramour.

    Aye, I noticed that with my recent Kamehameha (Rider) sheet, the second NP was just boringly summoning his ship. That's why I've been thinking of going back and revising it using the advice Jetkinen said.

    As a great man once said: "The only limits are the ones you place on yourself. Let your creativity soar into the sky, Gunpla Servant sheets is FREEDOM!!!"
    "Life is a serious battle, and you have to use the tools you are given.
    It's more important to master the cards you're holding rather than complain about the ones your opponent was dealt."

    Drake has the Flying Armada we all know and love, Blackbeard has a Ghost Ship fueled by the power of friendship and Columbus is a Sailing Enkidu. They're all boats so on a superficial level they're the same but they're different enough things that they can create different scenarios by themselves.

    I mean i'm not going to lie, i see no fun in a boat NP that its just a boat with crew, but boats allow you to be as creative as a horse or a sword.
    Not to tout my own horn, but thats the first fan made boat NP that comes to mind, but taking my Henry sheet as an example, the Boat is more on the generic side, but i tried to give enough variety by making it less combat focused and giving more of a utility(teleporting).
    Another good one was a Jason whose Argos was sentient and could become a Saint Seiya cloth.

    What i'm trying to say that a boat its not just a boat.
    It can mean freedom, it can mean tyranny, it can mean adventure, it can mean empire, it can mean a wall that stops the enemy, it can mean a hammer that bludgeons the old ways violently and most of times it can mean multiple things from different points of view.

    In short boats are important. Please think about them hard and well, because they deserve it. Just like Planes. And Armies.
    This is a good post. Two thumbs up.

    Pretty much applies for NPs in general, especially as you said Planes and Armies, etc.




    E: In other news, it seems that no one has made a Samuel Morse sheet. Should someone choose to do so, they should probably mention Morse's Claim 8 from "O'Reilly v. Morse", which strikes me as incredible NP potential.

    I know basically nothing on the guy other then I guess he invented Morse Code, but he sounds interesting.

    With the claim 8 you provided, I can imagine it giving him the Galvanism Skill as well as Gate Of Babylon style conceptual ownership over all means of electronic communication (including sci-fi ones that haven't even been invented yet). It could actually be a bit like my Alan Turing sheet where his Turing Machine NP lets him replicate any kind of computer, including ones that don't exist.

    I've never heard of Pygmachia using bladed gloves before, though it does sound cool.

    Pygmachia is game were contestant were gloves with small, and I mean small bakes at the end of the gloves to cut the face, the blades are not meant to be deadly thou peaple did get killed pygmachia matches. I've actually watched a match thou in modern version it's obviously with more safety procuations, there blades at the end but there designed to only slightly cut the skin but it can't cut deeply, they were eye, nose and ear guards, and contestants have to be over the age of twenty. Thou they probably don't have it anymore.

    Fair enough, though I don't really understand the logic of why it ranks down his Luck.

    Just to smooth out haveing b rank agility and B rank strength despite being an assassin, it's why to justify it.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also I'm work on Ce right now. And I think this phanatsms to OP, the idea is that one of his NPs gives him countrol over the earth with idea being his wandering the earth and setting up villages and giveing them advice and I wanted that to be turned into over exaggeration were people subconssuly think he wandered the whole earth instead of just North America. So the entire earth becomes his territory. Any restrictions that would make having such power more reasonable, I w at him to be an,e to countrol the earth but I want to be more reasonable but can't think of anything.

    Never mind found a fix.

    Source: https://twitter.com/organ70/status/660053514161250304
    Class: Caster
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    True Name: Eratosthenes
    Origin: Historical, Classical

    Parameters
    Strength: E
    Endurance: E
    Agility: E
    Mana: A
    Luck: D
    NP: EX

    Class Skills
    Territory Creation: (A)
    Territory Creation is a Caster-class Skill. It is the Skill to build a special terrain that is advantageous to oneself as a magus, such as for the purpose of collecting mana.
    Creation of a ‘Library Wing’, superior to a Workshop, becomes possible.

    Item Construction: (C)
    Item Construction is a Caster-class Skill. It is the Skill to manufacture magical items, from implements of war to items for daily use. Also, this Skill requires time to gather components and manufacture items.
    Caster is able to faithfully recreate things found in the books of the Library of Alexandria, but things beyond that seem outside her grasp.

    Personal Skills:
    Librarian of Stored Knowledge: (B++)
    Librarian of Stored Knowledge is an ability that makes it possible for a clear recall of knowledge from memory with a successful Luck Check, even if the information perceived in the past was not consciously acknowledged at the time.
    Caster was perhaps the most famous Chief Librarian of the Library of Alexandria, the ancient wonder of the world said to house all the world’s contemporary knowledge in one place. Caster is an ardent librarian type, taking her role supremely seriously by reading everything possible that the Library could present to her. She can accomplish clear recall of recent events thanks to her fanatical attention to detail, and experience as one already collecting vast amounts of data. Bonus modifiers are applied if the knowledge in question has even the most remote connection to an article that would have been found in the Library of Alexandria.

    Technique Elucidation: (EX)
    Technique Elucidation are Skills to interpret and restore more or less anything that can be called a formula. An esoterica among esotericae even in an age when magecraft still existed. But completely useless in combat.
    The unique personal skill of Archimedes that Caster is able to make full use of on the exact same level as Archimedes himself. As it can be safely assumed that Technique Elucidation is representative of the myriad mathematical breakthroughs of Archimedes condensed into a single skill--and most notably his book The Method--then Caster, as the one who Archimedes dedicated The Method to, has full authority over that knowledge. That’s not to say that Caster isn’t an accomplished mathematician in her own right, creating several mathematical practices still in use. Still, the fact that Caster received the ultimate knowledge of formulas from her friend and senior, and was entrusted as its first editor and proofreader, speaks volumes.
    She can not just repair magecraft, but also damaged circuits and even crests.

    Clairvoyance (Geographer): (B+)
    A visual ability concerned with long-range inference of the environment. A variation and specialization of the Clairvoyance skill that focuses exclusively on the minute details of the surrounding terrain, rather than searching for living targets. A style of tracking that puts emphasis on the literal layout of disturbances to the geography, instead of attempting to position the target relevant to any potential mindset. At higher levels, one can visually perceive the past events that would have shaped the terrain as if it was happening concurrently, as well as simulate Instinct-like effects by appearing to use the environment’s potential to one’s maximum advantage.
    Caster was able to guess that the earth was spherical simply by comparing the shadows of two different towers at the same time, and was then able to extrapolate its diameter and circumference with only a small margin of error. Caster’s dynamic occipital capture is rated first class, however her personality doesn’t lend itself to noticing human disturbances even if she’s staring them right in the face.

    Noble Phantasm
    O Ánousios
    Misery of the Second-Class
    (Anti-World, EX)

    “B-But, this isn’t what I wanted!”
    A Noble Phantasm that Caster absolutely despises for its insistence on faulty information as fact; embarrassingly so that that information was first proposed by Caster herself. Despite all of her revolutionary progress in the field of geography, even if most of her ideas about space and the bodies beyond earth were ill-informed and quickly debunked, this Noble Phantasm is a symbol of her mockery. For you see, this is an ability thrust onto her by her more outspoken modern detractors; those that believe the earth is actually flat, or Flat-Earthers. Although she’ll readily admit that people like Hipparchus were able to turn her theories and ideas into more concrete facts, this plea falls on deaf ears when it comes to the Flat-Earthers. Many attempt to blame the poor Ptolemaic Egyptian’s miscalculations for the “perpetuated lie” that the earth is a spherical body. As she was often teased in life with the name Beta--because she always came in second place in her endeavors--so too does her Noble Phantasm embody the fact that only crazy people seem to want to remember her anymore.

    An Anti-World shield that can only be called False. It takes the vague shape of a tortoise’s shell and is composed of True Ether that is perpetually in conceptual motion: Aetheric Wind. The concept of the Aetheric Whirlpool is central to the Flat Earth ideology; It represents a swirling opposing “force” to gravity composed of raw aether, that is constantly pushing the planet upwards at a rate of about 3 meters per second. It is only able to affect spiritual bodies, so even the smallest pebble would pass through the shield with no issue. However, the higher the level of an opponent’s Mystery, the better chance the shield has at stopping it. If Caster is attacked by a purely fictional existence, it will be halted in its tracks no questions asked. Ironically, Anti-World Noble Phantasms destroy it easily.

    History

    Eratosthenes of Cyrene was a Greek mathematician, geographer, poet, astronomer, and music theorist. He was a man of learning, becoming the chief librarian at the Library of Alexandria. He invented the discipline of geography, including the terminology used today.

    He is best known for being the first person to calculate the circumference of the Earth, which he did by applying a measuring system using stadia, a standard unit of measure during that time period. His calculation was remarkably accurate. He was also the first to calculate the tilt of the Earth's axis (again with remarkable accuracy). Additionally, he may have accurately calculated the distance from the Earth to the Sun and invented the leap day. He created the first map of the world, incorporating parallels and meridians based on the available geographic knowledge of his era.

    Eratosthenes was the founder of scientific chronology; he endeavored to revise the dates of the chief literary and political events from the conquest of Troy. Eratosthenes dated the sack of Troy to 1183 BC. In number theory, he introduced the sieve of Eratosthenes, an efficient method of identifying prime numbers.

    He was a figure of influence in many fields. According to an entry in the Suda, his critics scorned him, calling him Beta because he always came in second in all his endeavors. Nonetheless, his devotees nicknamed him Pentathlos after the Olympians who were well rounded competitors, for he had proven himself to be knowledgeable in every area of learning. Eratosthenes yearned to understand the complexities of the entire world.

    Because of Archimedes’s rabid protection of his junior and friend, Eratosthenes’s detractors set about spreading the word that she was in fact an ugly, bald old man. A fact she couldn’t readily dispute given her seclusion in the library.

    I've been thinking about a flat-earth shield for an unhealthy amount of time. This is partially the result.

    Any one know if any good Li guangbi sheets?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also good sheet. The Np is if an interesting design, thou just something I want to clear up does the earth turn flat or does she create a flat earth perpetual motion machine.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also while I'm in no position to talk since I litterly gender bent Washington, but why the gender bending I thought that was Royds thing?

    That Eratosthenes sheet is really good. I've considered writing up a Hypatia of Alexandria sheet in past (currently hanging around incomplete in a folder), so this might serve as a good reference. The "flat earth" shield is something I've heard bounced around here before (by Ail Don, I think) but I'm (pleasantly) surprised to see somebody actually went and did it.

    ...Congrats on your first genderbend, by the way.
