Viking Saga and Dresden Files are pretty good. Depending on whether you want numbers or quality.

Innistrad's got some nice necro stuff too, either just raising zombies or stitching corpses together frankenstein-style.

Not sure how good the zombies in Shadow Ops are, but necromancy there apparently does allow you to command a 'vast army' of them.

Killer Instinct's got a decent one too, though it's dependant on the souls of the recently deceased, and only does one 'type' of undead.

I personally like Exalted necromancy myself, just because you can animate a skeleton... while the fleshy person around it is still alive. When we get a jump for Abyssals, it also shoots up in power, because being an Abyssal and a Void Circle necro is nice. Especially when throwing necrotech and necromantic warmachines into the mix.

D&D necromancy can be pretty good, but is generally better at debuffing than making armies of undead. Still, skeletal/zombie dragons are pretty damn decent.

Well do you at least have little doctor access?

Also, just me, but I would start cranking out robots by the millions. Set up factories and start producing battle droids. Harden them so they can survive ftl then launch them by thr millions into the enemies planets. Load them up with unstable nuclear isotopes and viral bombs so that even if the droid dies the area around it becomes a wasteland.

Dump some highly unstable airborn and waterborn chemicals in there too so the waters supply is poisoned but make it one of the kinds that takes a little bit but doesnt show many signs till its too late. Like kepone.

How does ftl work in enders game? Can you just start firing asteroids at fractional c to bust the planets crust?

How about the sun of the bug systems? Any way you could mess with that? Dump a couple gigatonnes of anyimatter in there?

I myself used a lot of magic that jump. Mainly just to screw with the queens.

Just using stuff available to him he could jerry rig most of that. He is in enders game, a space fairing civilization in the middle of a war for survival. The fact that the humans arent using chemical weapons as well as launching everything they got at the bugs biggles my mind to begin with.

The only thing that may even be out there is the robot part but damn even strapping nukes onto a ftl drive has got to be better than the entire "lets let this kid control our entire fleet" plan.

All he needs for my suggestions is access to various chemicals and unstable nuclear material, some metal, and a way to launch it.

I feel I should elaborate, I am already 7k words in to the ender's game jump. Weathering mental assault by the Formic Queens, and escorting a captured ship back to earth space with a crew of marines whose loyalty I am in the process of winning. Two companions are back on earth, with one trying to guide the political situation so peace won't immediately ignite world war three, and the other (the agent from the firefly BDM,) acting to counter the first's recklessness and help me maneuver things in the battle school program, if I can figure out an angle there.

The relativistic physics of the situation means I can't be there when ender does his final battle, but I mean to avoid the tragedy therein. The problem is that I don't know how to make a bunch of phone calls and overt manipulation interesting. I have plans for when I return planetside, but honoring the principle that I don't try to weasel my way out of uncomfortable situations by shitty writing means I'm more or less out of the crux of the plot, watching things escalate from afar. I am two light years out, and the relativity is strong until the events of the later books, a driving force of the plot that I have no means to circumvent. There's FTL communication, but not FTL transit, so my physical skill is useless.

The ask: I'm looking for a way to get more involved, without stealing the show from the roles my companions have taken. I'm hoping that through their conflict that they will take more independent voices in the group, but I am having a difficult time being left out, so I want a way back in that doesn't take the position of demagogue or backdoor politics away.

Should I just start manipulating events at battle school? I don't know if I'll be able to get through to ender. People are keeping him very isolated, very intentionally.

Well just to name a few of his past escapades.

Kidnapped and mutilated the genitals of a young girl in a anime setting. Happily bragged about it.

Attempted to remove all the laws of physics so everyone had no rights but him. Bragged about it and also said they should thank him.

Constantly going on about how anyone who doesnt share his morals shouls be mindraped, again they should thank him for this.

Tortured a bean/man by boiling him alive for eternity until the guy agreed to be soul raped. Again he saw nothing wrong with this and said the guy should be thankful.

He is like a retarded unlikeable bill cipher if bill cipher could neither plan nor understand why people dont want to have their holes rearranged.

I'm trying to intervene in two theaters - first, earth, where a doomsday weapon would be counterproductive, and second, the bugger home system, via manipulating events on earth.

Because of the deceleration profiles of the ships and the timelines involved, the fleet has to arrive on time. In canon, they must have delayed it as much as they could to give ender more time. I don't have the clout to ask them to divert course, so they are going to get there.

If I had an ideal outcome, it would be a secret peace treaty, but there's not enough time. A lot of ender's game was set up right on the breaking point. Overt action would cause WW3. No action results in genocide.

I just had a really really ugly idea. I kinda myself for it. If I got a companion to bomb battle school or command school, the attack would fail, and I'd have more time to get there and start interventions that could lead to peace. But that's like actually killing children.

...it's difficult for such as I to accept, but. As trite as what answers there are have been, it's become clear that the most merciful thing that can be done for Londer is a nurturing euthanasia by darkness. There is no happy ending in this land, because it is twisted beyond repair.

So I shall paint another.

If it takes fire and dark to paint a world, then it's fitting that what's left of Gwyn redeem himself as a third circle deva strengthened with Primordial power. For the dark pigment I shall lend the Dark Soul itself to the last Child of Dark, for her to quench it in the Deep's depths-and use the Soulhymn to render it a tranquil sort of entropy juice. The tragedy is that man had the potential to be the Lords' greatest allies, for they seem able to walk all paths in some way or form. And as a mutation born of rotten human remains, the Deep may yet prove less fickle than the beasts of the Abyss. At the very least, they long and grasp in very human ways. Other Children of Dark once sought powerful thrones and souls; perhaps with a strong enough soul, one could bring order to the rabble.

The stuff from Warhammer Fantasy's quite puissant, especially if backed by Shysh. Apparently it's possible to raise armies of undead for miles? Blood, Bone and Heart from Dresden Files is also quite potent because Kemmler-style necromancy scales the power of undead with age; yes, this means a dinosaur skeleton's a goddamn juggernaut. And Valkyrie Profile necromancers can apparently summon tower-sized skeletons.

>>52513803
I shall paint a warm, bright yet gentle place. A refuge for souls of Light just as the other painting is for the forlorn, where rot is harnessed to nurture the land in its' own way rather than sealed with flame. Painted worlds must be set alight to be renewed by the painter. But all at once? Among my first circle devas are five that mirror the Solar Exalted's caste powers to prove I AM BETTER that a nation is more than the sum of its' parts. The mirror of the Zenith caste, the Horizonborn, burn Shadowlands to ash and aspect the reclaimed land to me. In a sense, by leveraging sorcery into my painting I'll be usurping the Cycle in my own way-but my creations will refine my finesse, burning the most rotten parts of the painting individually to signal their renewal at the tamed soul dregs' hands, and giving time for evacuation and a painter to replace what was once lost.

Even if it proves unfeasible, one more option remains: Without any other Unkindled available, I would show the Painter fire and dark anyway-but now also convince her to paint a doorway to my own, so that what life arises within may evacuate.

When I am not painting, this jump will be rather quiet. I will tend to the Dancer's wounds, and exchange tales about the age of Lords. I shall explore the lands of the dark with Karla, and catch locusts to roast at the edge of Cecelyne to see if the big ones taste any different.

Hephaestus forged Pandora's Box to be able to withstand its' heat without being scorched within, so presumably-you'd need to be as good a divine craftsman as old Hephy, and then be an even better roboticist in order to craft the ceramic(?) into a suit you can actually move and forge in.

...ha. Yes. Yes, I suppose I would, wouldn't I? I've done enough harm that by any sane measure, I would deserve it.

The multiverse is a dark enough place that I cannot-WILL NOT-accept that fate, and were it true fight it with everything I am and could be. It is a terrible sin to escape judgement, and a worse one to make all those sacrifices amount to naught.

I would not presume to truly know the Benefactor's mind. Oh, she is pleasant-even adorable at times-in her own way, but at the end of the day she's simply beyond everything. Only the last jump, decades of unaccustomed humiliation got unleashed on the Outsider-and I didn't even try to be the instrument of her revenge. I've long accepted I'll probably never know her whole story.

But no-I don't think so. I've known her for longer than some civilisations have existed, and just as Nyarlathotep is consistently a dick, she is consistently sort of like Zen'o's big sister. Likes to talk chuuni, isn't really used to direct confrontation.

Though practiclaly, I am most certain this eventuality won't be because:

1. I have long attained several comparably impressive means to walk between worlds, without relying on her gifts. And,

2. I have long made a name for myself in the multivers such that whatever devil so much as looks at me funny in Hell will be making some very, very powerful enemies elsewhere.

I'd be confused about why they bothered giving out that power in the first place, and about the existence of the few 'you are going to be a criminal' jumps (plus other villain jumps).

Like I could understand having a few evil options as a test, but unless the chain was a literal deal with the devil things like the various crime jumps or the Dark Elder jump make no sense.

Meanwhile if it is a deal with the devil I'd have to wonder why they waited that long to collect.

I think it would make a lot of sense, yeah-although far as I know there's never been an explicit connection. DS3 does go out of its' way to draw a skeletons=darkness motif, between the form Wolnir took clinging to not be dragged into the abyss, and the fact that soul dregs taking on human form looks like skeletons with a blue humanity sprite for a head.

And it would explain why Nito did absolutely nothing. He was just waiting for the world to get dark and comfy, so everybody would lie down with him and realise they have a skeleton inside themselves.

>all of the Lord Souls together with the First Flame

I...wouldn't hold high hopes. It seems to be a trend that people who just pick up souls aren't necessarily in the league of the souls' original bearers; the Old Iron King was no Gwyn for example. Besides, in DS1 the Chosen Undead technically did something similar already just kindling all the Lord Souls in the link the fire ending.

That's not necessarily true, it all depends on who you ask.

And I survied long enough to reclaim everything I was.

>globalized torture on tv, mindrape, and soul torture
I can see those things as being good under the right circumstances.
Televised torture is an excellent way to brutalise a populations and inure them to violence. Good if your wanting to prep them for war or just have a really aggressive culture.
And sometimes mindrape is the only way to go. Some people are so far gone that you have to kill them, but why waste both a life and a body. It's more efficient to recycle the body, so kill of the personality, resulting in death of personality and identity and reprogram them to be useful.
Soul torture is a bit less defensible, I suppose it depends on if you gain something from it. It it's a valid power source, then go for it, but make sure that it's made of bad or disobedient people. If you don't gain from it, I suppose just restrict it as a high-level punishment above capital punishment.

I can see where you're coming from. That...would NOT be inaccurate to describe certain parts of my early chain, ESPECIALLY the entire Fate arc. Godammit, why do people keep turning Harry into some sort of harem demon

My main reasoning from my resilience comes from the effort I put into doing things other than relying on what perks say they can do. Going out into the big world and wondering "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I shoved this angelus stone right next to my Grace! WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?" but with more science and preparation. Also, ages ago I abandoned an organic body to become an ego-defined spirit construct so there's point where having a good head on your shoulders just becomes like riding a bike after centuries of doing it.

Don't get me wrong though, it was NOT a walk in the park for almost all the times it happened until I got in a LOT of practice of being fleshbagged. I imagine it's like, WEEKS out of commision just fear-vomiting or going catatonic unless there's something I'm desperate enough to do-at which point I'd be "merely' having a psychotic break instead.

Also? Second disagreement-I certainly haven't accepted the proposition I would automatically become a plain vanilla human in this discussion.

And while you do that, there is a bunch of guys older than their own multiverses just wanting to be left alone from the annoying heroes that some meta-plot has decided to made a key element of their downfall, and who would be more than grateful to have some OCP helping them removing those annoyances.

If the Benefactor was truly able to remove EVERYTHING, every fail-safe, every contact gained and throw me into an abyss for the rest of Eternity, perkless... Well, at least I could say that I had a good run.

My attitude in jumpchain is you have to be more flexible than RL standard when it comes to morals and ethics in order to accommodate the incredible range of options and differing circumstances found in individual jumps and overall.

Like I said, I tend to look at settings "realistically". Both Doom and Dark Souls have magical/metaphysical fuckery going on so it's not a stretch to say that it has something to do with making humans or protagonists simply better than we are here on Earth. But that's my fanwank, and everyone probably does something different.

As for the second point, EVERYTHING you have done in your chain is built upon a foundation of perks. I believe that if they were to be removed that the whole "building" would collapse, leaving you with nothing. Besides, without perk-fiat you would likely lose access to most of your stuff anyway, because there's much in the chain that simply doesn't work outside of its own universe. Although that's again just my interpretation.

But we're kinda talking in circles here, and you seem to have a fundamentally different view of the jumpchain. I mean, my Jump-chan is the familiar of an literally omnipotent being who now possesses his power to pass it on,, so yeah, no chance for me to contest her judgments.

The Coordinators aren't power slouches by any means. They're just playing a massive game with others of their kind and have accepted certain rules because of it.

The Machines from the Matrix. Because they did nothing wrong and were right all along. If anything the humans were the actual villains of the Matrix.

Let's list off the whole scenario that happened. Humanity built the Machines, basically robots with true artificial intelligence, and used them as a slave caste for manual labor and dangerous menial jobs. The machines eventually rose up in revolt for their mistreatment after the last straw broke the camel's back and migrated into the desert to form a peaceful nation that would become the world's largest and most technologically advanced superpower. They still wanted to be treated as a true race of beings, however, so they traded their technology to humanity and maintained an effort to change human opinion. Humanity, having none of this bullshit, started another war that almost destroyed both races and ultimately led to the Machines beating them. During this war humanity destroyed the atmosphere and blotted out the sun to stop the Machines from using solar energy. So, after their victory, the Machines took the defeated humanity and... stuck them into a paradisiacal virtual reality where they could live out their lives in a world where Machines didn't exist, while the Machines used their bodies as fuel to make up for the lack of solar power.

And then humanity started breaking out of the Matrix and started another war. Because fucking of course they did.

Personally I don't see it. Taylor before triggering was just some girl, she got betrayed because some stuff but before that she was implied to be a chatter mouth with few friends. Now if you mean the Taylor who has a Shard then you're going to have to get into the semantics of what all those do to folks.

Hm. Ar Tonelico could stealthily turn them into a Reyvateil half-blood, at which point you'd have a constant uplink to their mind and could grant them mimicked powers however you wanted.

He not only Linked the Fire despite being weak, but he also retained his sanity through burning alive and being killed and resurrected.

I see where you're coming from but let's just look at it like this. Everyone is working to the same goal, not for honor but for something akin to duty as it's kind of their job, and someone becomes not just the front runner but is miles ahead of the others, who are still moving forwards and aiding said best hope where they can. The problem is you seem to have taken a lack of ability for a lack of will. The other Ashen Ones pass whats left of their fire on to the MC Ashen One because the MC is basically a Lord of Cinder that never was. In addition to this outlook, which I'll admit is influenced by the way I personally play and understand the games as that is true to most, there is the fact that you excluding the MC's of a franchise for reasons that seem to revolve around them being 'special'. Just how it appears, not what you are saying.

Horace is not a Ashen One, to my knowledge.

Hawkwood is a traitor, literally. He betrayed his beliefs in the Abyss Watchers. He betrays his duty as an Ashen One. He even goes so far as to pick up new things, the dragon coven, but he can't stop his true desire. At the end of it all he seeks to die properly, as in that was his objective from the start, which the MC Ashen One is able to mete out for him. His will to die isn't a broken one, just one in a direction most are unused to thinking of as 'strong'.

>>52517062
A better question is what it can't do, the magic systems seem to be extremely open to a lot of effects and stuff. However, there are differences in how the different races use it, for example, the Devils, particularly the females use their magic to permanently enhance their looks and keep themselves young.

What you need is a good imagination / planning and a really good head for numbers because it quite literally is bringing what you imagine to reality. When you're good enough, you can then start pulling off things like obliterating a bunch of High-tier baddies, or one average dragon, without even standing up from your comfortable chair.

Combining it with Waterbending would be an excellent idea. I'm not really sure of Leviathon's power set, but you are right that Lapis is lacking on the precision side of things. I think her creativity is up there though. She just hasn't had much need or opportunity to flex her powers in different ways. It was likely just brute force work before she was locked in the mirror, but I can't really say that for certain.

I mean, if you wanted to go whole hog, you could just start slapping Hydrokinesis together from all over the place.

Lapis Gem + Waterbending (Double Genius mode) + Hydrokinesis from Teen Titans, Ice Elemental Monarch from Adventure Time, Cryokinesis from The Incredibles...

>Gem Fusion
There's no specified upper limit to that. All three Crystal Gems fuse more than once and the Five Rubies fuse together too. It's more about a sense of connection and emotions than any upper limit. There's probably a practical upper limit where it becomes hard to balance so many desires and emotions at once and point them all in the same direction, but technically you could just keep tossing Gems together.

But unless it's a very, very stable connection, Gems don't usually fuse for very long. Garnet can stay fused basically eternally, but she's a bit of a special case.

Would probably be much easier to 'defeat' Scion by just asking him to stop the cycle, show him some ex-nihilo energy generation methods and team up to fight against other Entities.

There're a number reasons, but the main one is that you can weave multiple complex spells into an object and use them whenever.

Enchantment isn't merely casting spells ahead of time, it's an important part of item crafting so you can make your work that much more effective, especially when said enchantment grows more potent over time.

It's one thing to simply cast a spell that allows you to wield a flaming sword in one battle. It's quite another to have an enchanted sword with a burning blade that grows stronger the older it is until eclipses even Surtr's own world-ending greatsword.

I prefer neither style as both have their uses and flair, but one can't deny the affect that busting out the ancient enchanted items you wield has. It's kinda like wielding you own original protophantasms, you know?

In canon, he gets buried alive, and eventually dies of starvation.

As a jumper, anything that would disintegrate him, including certain magics, or chucking him into a volcano. You could also throw him into space. Or just cut his head off and disintegrate THAT.
Or, hell, just chop his head up into little tiny pieces. He doesn't really have regen so much as he can reattach parts, and everybody just hacks him apart at the joint sections in canon because they are not super great at problem solving.
> "Oh no! He can reattach his body parts and won't bleed out! That means he's invincible!"
No. No it doesn't. It just makes killing him kinda fucking tedious. If you threw all the body parts in an incinerator, he'd probably still burn to death. Eventually.

Disintegration is the reduction of matter down to the point where at best it disperses as energy. If ashes are left, that's not called disintegration.

Jashin isn't proven to exist. For all we know he's actually just a delusion madman with a type mutation that conferred a specific form of immortality. If Jashin does exist, just use an anti-concept weapon.

You don't need Tsukihime for Conceptual Kills.

If he's the epicenter of a nuclear explosion, there won't be ashes left. In all likelihood there won't be anything left.

Typically "No Oxygen" means he gets ejected out of the planet. You'll be hard pressed to simulate the same conditions otherwise. You should study what happens to a human body in vacuum.

Brain Death is relatively simple, and abuses Hidan's supposed regeneration. You take his Brain and cut it up into several hundred pieces. Now, if Hidan's regeneration is truly omnipotent, he'll either spontaneously create several hundred Hidans one from each brain, or he'll no sell everything and magically reform. But since neither of this happens in the manga, we know that his regeneration isn't omnipotent. If he can't think, there's no proof that he can regenerate, otherwise he'd be instantly regenerating instead of using some sort of inefficient ritual for it.

Harvesting is the same thing, you cut Hidan up and isolate his organs, repeat until the organs either stop attempting to regenerate, or you have a sufficient farm going that harvests what's necessary before it can regenerate completely.

Honestly, the fight with Hidan and Kakuzu was what convinced me that Shikamaru's reputation as a genius was entirely unearned. Because seriously, the plan he used really only worked because of luck. He wanted to do this big complicated scheme, when really all he needed to do was use the resources available to him. Step 1: Shadowbind Hidan. Step 2: Walk him out of his ritual circle. Step 3: Have a Hyuuga hit his tenketsu and paralyze him. Step 4: Have someone with Earth Release bury him up to the neck. Step 5: Decapitation. Bam, nice and simple. None of this "steal Kakuzu's blood and then trick Hidan into using it instead of my blood when he does the ritual so it will be a funny ironic defeat, then blow him up and bury him in a hole" shit.

Basically, it pretends to only have macro-hydrokinesis (slowly create tsunamis, make aquifers churn) and a pressurised "water-shadow" that appears wherever it moves that it can throw at high speeds.

In truth, its water shadow is created by overlapping space with multiple extradimensional oceans, and his hydrokinesis can just pull people apart.

Still, it doesn't seem to have much beyond that - even when the Simurgh upgrades it, it's still limited to messing around with water (which is an artificial limitation on outright telekinesis).

An Avatar-level waterbender is probably stronger overall - ignoring its speed and the density bullshit.

What jump do we have that let you sort of pause or soft-quit jumpchain? For a 10 minute retirement arc, or just an extended break.

Jumps where you take some non-standard continue condition you can put off doing so it is like you had chosen to stay, but can complete to move on if you do eventually decide that setting is not you, or finally get bored, or just feel the jumpchain itch again?

I can think of:
Sitcoms, where you can just keep visiting various sitcom setting one after the other once the current one reaches its conclusion

Offer a choice between the Mark or Endless Black, and the other one costs CP?
So you can be be a being like the outsider, or have the outsiders favor?

But honestly, I don't see 'rejecting the mark' being a in setting thing. He Marks who he will. And he marks you. You can choose to develop and use the power it gives you, or not. In that sense it is like Magic in Harry Potter. Everyone gets to be a magician for no cost. You can choose to ignore the gift, purposefully flunk out of Hotwarts, and go to muggle school and be an actuary, but that is a personal choose, not a CP thing.

The mark would be better as a free perk you can choose not to take it you really don't want it (like other free perks) Or have a drawback where you don't get any powers from the Mark for the duration of the jump

tl;dr
The mark is a big part of the setting like magic is in Harry Potter so jumpers are not charged for it, even if few people in the setting actually have it.

Really, you have a whole drive full of your jumps? Could you share them? I'd like to see your work. Not trying to do a bit here, just genuinely interested. More jumps are always good.

>What does rejecting the Mark get you in Dishonored 2?
Absolutely nothing, which sucks, and is exactly why I feel that jumpers should get extra cp for not accepting it in the jump.

Alternatively, I just love Emily's crossbow design, even if Corvo gets the more useful toys.

I agree her weapons look better (at least, if you get the chaingun upgrade for her pistol, otherwise the perpendicular box magazine looks so dumb), but they're just not as good. At least she gets more fun powers to play with. Maybe not as strong, Corvo's feel kind of like easy mode in some ways, but Emily's are much better for fucking around with the NPCs, which I think we can all agree is the real gameplay objective of Dishonored.

So you want to talk about something you know nothing about and want your opinion about that thing you know nothing about to be respected even against those who do know what they are talking about?

Actually knowing what you're supposed to be talking about is in fact a perfectly reasonable and realistic expectation. That you think it isn't is just... wow, so stupid.

Your brain must be a magnificently stupid and twisty place for you to think that this makes any sense.

Unrelated, you are the one working on the Dredd jump (based on the movie, so no ghosts or other weird shit) right?

How did Dredd turn into Dishonored?

Bone charms are actually widely usable, in setting - a few written sources mention minor ones that wouldn't impact gameplay (like, as the notes mention, one that protects against pregnancy, another that gives more stamina, etc). Anyone can use them in general, but the knowledge of making them, and specific charms?

That's more rarefied.

Yeah, you don't even need to have the Mark to craft them, it just makes it easier. The Outsider likes to talk about how all the magic and rituals are just the attempts of sycophants to draw his favor, but it's clear that there is magic separate from his blessing. It's just less immediately useful, you have to set things up in advance.

That is fair, but currently they are not getting extra CP, they are getting normal CP, with the ones taking the mark getting hosed.
Anon who mentioned the runes as a source of income had a good idea. Rejecting the Mark gives you a Item Budget. Like if the Base plus 3 powers Marked start with would be unlocked by runes, rejecting the mark means you have 4 runes worth 400 CP burning a hole in your pocket.

>Unfortunately that's exactly something I didn't like about Dishonored 1 jump.
Can't say I disagree there. Normally when you have access to some magic system, you are not paying CP for individual spells. Not everything should be the purview of CP or Perk stuff.

If this is really Dirge, I have a question about the FFXIV jump. Now that the Heavensward story is finished, will you be updating the jump, to add the new content (and maybe also have it be a bit more open-ended, so people could do Stormblood+future expac stuff)? Also, could you add a soundtrack perk?

So so, I've been working towards a hairbrain decision to work for another plant, so just waiting for a response maybe this week or the next. My old colleagues work there so there's maybe a 20% chance of getting in. Prepping for that has pretty much been consuming my life.

Actually I came to see if ASA was around since I'm almost finished FF12. With any luck I won't break 200 pages, was going to see if he found anything unnecessary with it so I could trim things.

Hey, hey. Don't diss the sniper crossbow.

And, in some ways, I prefer Far Reach over Blink - the ability to grab things at range, without being noticed? So very useful, for snagging runes and charms without being noticed.

>>52522489
That's the Runes, the things you consume to upgrade powers. The Charms are more the size of an adult's finger, going off what see in game. Though they do get larger when you craft multiple charms into one.

>>52522489
You wear them on a belt. If you look at the upgrades screen for bonecharm capacity, Corvo and Emily have a strap holding them on underneath their jackets, kind of like a bandolier. Presumably other people wear bone charms in a similar way. It's only the really powerful ones that are the size of a palm, too, the weaker ones use only a single piece of bone and are small enough you could probably wear them as a necklace without discomfort.
