New to the forum, been on a RWBY kick lately. Decided to create some semblances and characters and would greatly appreciate feedback.
my three favorite Semblance creations are:
- Creates a cloud of frozen fog in an area proportional to the user's remaining aura. This can be extended with training, but i was figuring a maximum of ~15m or 50ft radius.
This fog drains anyone inside the AOE of their stamina slowly and vastly diminishes their sight to around 3ft in front of them at most. The user is not drained of stamina, but is affected by the visual detriment. The cloud moves with the user at the center, and will repair itself with a speed proportional to the amount of aura used when disturbed or blown away. The fog dissipates normally after the semblance is deactivated.
Additionally ice based elemental effects can be absorbed by the user directly into their aura pool. (Although I fear this is a bit too much to tack onto this).
2."Heaven's Flow" (paired with a fire-dancer)
- The manipulation or disruption of aura of oneself or of someone in physical contact with them.
This is allows the user to create gaps in aura shields, disrupt Semblances, and shift their own aura to a point instead of a single thin layer.
This leaves the unspecified spots unprotected, or at least weaker, but with proper training moving aura to impact zones would lessen the damage to both aura and physical body.
The user would have to have at least one hand's worth of area touching the aura of the target to affect them and must stay in contact with the body to prolong the ability. Disruptions may take a few seconds or less than that to reestablish once the hand is released depending on the competency of the target's aura control.
3."Miasmic Theory" (Based off Plague Doctor Masks; Paired with a villain)
- The user generates a thin gas of poison that radiates off of their aura.
this gas is akin to a neurotoxin that slows muscle movements and eventually paralysis if exposed to prolonged exposure. The poison covers the users body and weapon as long as it is attached to the user.
This gas can be condensed into a liquid and splashed onto a target to administer a strong dose directly through the target's aura/body. This liquid takes considerably more aura to use and dissipates quickly after leaving the gas's range.
The poison has an aromatic scent to it, smelling like herbs and spices masking its poisonous intent from victims.
Trying to come up with two more before I'm satisfied with my team composition, but this is what I have at the moment.
