Afflicted - The Second Coming

Recommended Posts

Except it'd be more effective to carry a standard sword than form one @ShameJax. From what I've gathered, it takes much longer to do so. A mage could just as easy wield around a longsword and accomplish the same thing, if not better than an afflicted. Time is still a factor, a big one. While the mage afflicted is busy making their weapon arm, they can just as easily be overpowered as any other mage. I'm not interested in getting my mits on this, but I like the concept and I fail to see the really big balancing issues, save for a slippery slope. The big thing in the lore is its utility, that is all. Furthermore, OP states that pain is invoked while making these attachments/weapons, which I assume will be immense enough to stop casting of any kind. On the topic of multiple limbs, having multiple limbs you are not used to is going to affect the focus a lot, which again, is something that magic requires, even if said focus is negligible. I see no big combat advantage for a magic user, let alone an Archon. 

 

Edit: The OP will be adding that the pain of transformation causes weakened magic for a few actions past, which should serve as further balancing.

Adding the weakened magic should solve the balancing issues near completely. Really only issue is up to a slippery slope, but I don't think that's enough to warrant the lore being denied. It's good lore, just needs to be careful to not let it apply to other more offensive things.
