Making a new armor with the help of the dragon flying skills

Postby minalia on Wed Oct 16, 2013 9:04 pm

This is a special armor designed for gliding and landings it will have limited jump capabilities kinda like the special power armor Sarah uses in the drowtales comic and her crab clan from the nuqra hometown. Ignore the energy wings part its mostly leather with wings added to it. That energy thing is just to high tech. Besides i like the look Kern did so its worth doing and the helmet almost looks like the mk3 armor version.

Isn't that like way too badass for our current skills/quality stuff we can work with? Looks really impressive though.

We gonna use as much floating ore to be added on the armor itself in order to decrease the weight by a huge amount. It's not meant to fly. its meant to glide and have limited jumping capabilities. That's in a near dead mana environment in a drow filled city this armor will become actually a very powerful flying valkyria of destruction since the amount of mana in the air would help subtain it at a far longer rate. Think of it like a 5 minute outfit with very limited jump jet fuel. Of course it will have wind foci in the gloves to help move to the left and right. Beside the dragon armor color is the same as that armor kern drew years ago.

I like where this is going :D

golem arms to move and fold/unfold the wings should be fairly simple task and it indeed does not have to fly. Hell with the floating rocks to lighten the armor would be an mana efficient way to make strong armor that isn't encumbering. Best weapon to go with it would be a spear, with sidesword sheathed when not in use. This would be entirely possible with our current tech level.

I'm down with it. :D

The best weapons to go with it would be ranged ones. Crossbows, mana cannons, javelins, axes, knives... you get the picture. Make full use of the height advantage Although ranged weapons that could double as melee weapons would be better since the wearer would have to land and close eventually, so of the list, just the latter three would be ideal.

That said, I hope my new project produces results that mesh with this one.

The problem is that ranged weapons are hard to aim while flying (gliding). Besides the point of this armor if I understood Min correctly is to take the troop from the ship to the battlefield and to allow enhanced battlefield manuevering. While it'd be good to have ranged option, it'd still be mainly close quarters armor.
