GALVANIST (Xenophon of Athens) you are a crazy fucking cultist with a rose-gold mask in the shape of an animal that doesn't exist. you worship Magolg, the Demiurge, the bolt of silver-adamant lightning. you pretend to be a cleric, but you are actually a practitioner of the Fourth Art of Galvanism, which deals with the creation of motion and the element of Lightning. things you can do: convince peasants and the very rich that you are a real priest with angels, create painful static shocks with your hand, create a bright arc of lightning between your fingers, induce a weak magnetic field in a conductive object. when you wake up in the morning, you may choose a problem to be able to solve with a crackle of lightning: 1. I NEED TO RUN VERY VERY FAST 2. I NEED TO BE VERY VERY STRONG 3. THIS FLESH MUST KNIT 4. THAT MIND MUST BE CLEARED OF IMPAIRMENT 5. MY ANCESTOR MUST ANSWER A QUESTION ABOUT OLD THINGS AND BE A BIGOT 6. THIS BODY OF AIR OR FLESH MUST BE CLEARED OF POISON powerful galvanists can zap people with lightning, extremely powerful galvanists can create temporary jewelry of lightning-crackling adamant. the more powerful a galvanist gets, the more they are tormented by bigoted ancestors and hungry devils.
FLESHCRAFTER (Lexi)you are a devotee of the Artes of the Meat and the Lines of Blood. you have a bag full of organs, pulsating on their own despite being disconnected from any body or heart. you worship no god but your own potential, though many pay lip service to the Crab God Metastas, Who Grows Ceaselessly. things you can do: contort your limbs in ways that horrify anyone who is not a fleshcrafter, seal or split skin at a touch, share your senses with others at a touch or borrow the senses of someone touched, accelerate or temporarily slow the course of a disease. when you wake up in the morning, you may choose a problem to be solved with a copious amount of blood: 1. SOMETHING NEEDS A NEW ORGAN. 2. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH BLOOD IN THIS VESSEL. 3. TWO FLESHES MUST BE BONDED TOGETHER. 4. THIS FLESH MUST PERFORM OPTIMALLY FOR THIS TASK. 5. THIS DISEASE MUST BE MOVED TO A DIFFERENT HOST. 6. THIS ORGAN DOES NOT YET HAVE LEGS AND SO CANNOT OBEY MY COMMANDS AND THEN DIE, WHICH IS A SHAME, SOMEONE SHOULD FIX THAT. powerful fleshcrafters can alter larger quantities of flesh at once, and well-studied fleshcrafters can provide their creations with abilities from all kinds of fauna. fleshcrafters who learn the most forbidden meat-ways are tempted to surpass the limits of their baser instincts and become utterly, unplayably alien.
1. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THIS THING KNOWS BY TASTING ITS ASHES
2. THIS FIRE, IT IS NOT MOVING AND I WISH IT TO MOVE AS A SMALL CREATURE WOULD
3. THIS BLOOD NEEDS TO BECOME AS FLAMMABLE AS TINDERThe can solve these three problems.
1. THESE OBJECTS, THEIR SEPARATION IS INCONVENIENT AND MUST CEASE
2. THERE IS NOT AN EARTHEN TUNNEL THROUGH WHICH I CAN ACCESS A NEARBY AREA, AND I WANT ONE NOW
3. I NEED MY LEGS TO KEEP MOVING ACROSS UNPASSABLE SURFACESThe can solve these three problems.
1. THESE OBJECTS ARE JOINED AND THAT SHALL STOP NOW
2. I MUST PLACE A PERSON IN A COMA TEMPORARILY
