nWoD Kitten Motivator: Rahu by DolphinSilverwolf
nWoD Kitten Motivator: Rahu
I tend to play a lot of these, maybe it's because I'm a martial artist and a medical man.  I just like the idea of being able to deliver surgical strike attacks and pick my fights.  The full moon is the warrior, but not an uncontrolled killing machine.  They are the military arm, with the strength and discipline to deliver the hurt.
Tigerknight Fanart - SPLAM! by DolphinSilverwolf
Tigerknight Fanart - SPLAM!
This was one of those inspired ideas that wouldn't go away, and resulted in a fanart for :icontigerknightcomics: Jan.

First, there's the onomatopoeia, "splam," the mix of "splat" and "slam."  Jan invented and employed this in two of his comics.

Then there was this comic:… .  I asked the question..."If Wolf imparts high velocity to Spam, does it become Splam on impact?"

Jan's response: "Wolf, don't SPLAM the SPAM!"

I couldn't resist.  And it seems oddly in character for Wolf to take a meat product he finds distasteful and weaponize it.

Wolf belongs to :icontigerknightcomics:.  Spam (the canned meat, not the junk E-mail) belongs to Hormel.
Sometimes the strangest dreams can come to people and lend to the most interesting inspirations.

I hadn't known about Pacific Rim when I started my project on organic design with AutoCAD, but it seems that others were reading the same book.  The drivesuits used by the Jaeger pilots (sorry, I don't know how to quickly make umlauts on a PC keyboard) were 3D printed using a polyjet method (each layer is made of photopolymer, but the layers are laid down using an inkjet printer head and hit with UV light to harden it).

It made me wonder how many suits got broken during the filming (okay, okay...ObJet makes resins that are tougher, but I only know about the blue stuff that's very precise but not very strong).

I started putting together a story from a dream (nothing to do with Pacific Rim) and ancient lore.  Try to imagine a, not the "tinkerbell" things, or the babyish pixie things, the ever-so happy things...or maybe you can.  But imagine that cutesy thing...then altering gravity to the point where your internal organs shred themselves.  Or with a thought, shutting down the electrical activity of your heart.  Or, altering probability in a sadistic play of events...manipulating the odds such that things just don't work.

The fae in lore were as diverse as humans are in reality.  Some were benevolent, others malevolent.  To be told off by one for a slight, even terrorized in an incident, might seem harsh, but to them, an attempt to teach a lesson in their best knowledge.

Let's say that some of them decided to learn how we are in the present generation.  To learn our culture, our reactions, to explore our diversity and know that to them, we are only as insects in terms of lifespan.

Now let's imagine that our greatest thinkers lay down information that helps the fae understand THEMSELVES.  If you are a species that lives and breathes magic, yet is ignorant of the mechanisms but for a few dedicated magi, then a short-lived race of thinking beings might be worth investigating in a benign sense.

In many popular media, I'd run across a theme of "science vs. magic," as if the two were mutually exclusive.  However, think about is not a means of application.  Science is a means of exploration and objective (at least as objective as is possible) analysis of the observed and measured world.  Magic, as it stands in many stories, is an application towards an effect.  It is engineering.  Powerful mages are depicted in study, learning about the world they attempt to alter.

Let's say that some of these fae figure out enough of the human cognition...and decide to give them a level advantage.  Sometimes this might involve a "changeling effect" (human becomes fae).  The alternative, though, is to augment them.

I had inspiration from the Halo franchise and Footloose by :icongingerbreadart: and Alice Nutall.

AutoCAD seems rather simple, but in that it is an excellent tool for raw construction of 3D items.  The AutoCAD Design Ultimate suite includes Inventor, which allows me to work around what AutoCAD can't do.

I am going to make a story out of this.

The fae will be real.

Some will try to kill us all.

Some will fight alongside us...and give us the means to fight back.

Those means...are the Human Augment Combat System (HACS).

The soldiers that used it...called it ELVENGEAR.
