Magic Mondays

With the Runed Age’s release off to a rocking start and so many of you already enjoying it, this week’s array is one that will make your lives so much easier.

This week we give you the God’s Razor array.

Notation: Create a Containment field Twice as large as the array, with a depth One Hundredth the array’s diameter, that Excludes Human if a human is present within the same area.


Description:
At first glance it seems like a fairly standard exclusion array that targets humans, until you know it’s application. The God’s Razor, as the name implies, is meant to be applied onto blades, and this is where the magic happens. Assume the arrays on the sword or dagger is only 2cm across, that would mean the exclusion field is only 0.2mm thick. If that’s not a sharp razor, I don’t know what is. Since the width of the effect is twice that of the array, it means that the exclusion field will be wider than the blade itself. If you apply the array to both flat side of the blade, this means that the blade itself will never come into contact with flesh at all, since the array will destroy any before it even gets to the blade.

Unlike a normal containment field that excludes something that is always on as long as there is energy, this containment field only activates if there is a human in the same area as the containment field. This works in much the same was as the Blessed Solitude array from last week. The reason for this is twofold. First off, it saves energy, since the array has a very specific trigger for activation, it can store up energy for a very long time before releasing it only for short bursts. This means that you will very rarely have to charge the array, as the kinetic energy from combat, or simply walking about, will do that for you.

The other reason for this specific trigger is so it will always destroy human flesh. If there trigger wasn’t there, it would create a containment field that destroys what human flesh is inside it, but because will continue to be “on”, it will simply act as a forcefield against any further human flesh, preventing it from entering the containment field. By adding this trigger, you are ensuring that it will always destroy flesh because it will only activate if there is indeed human flesh inside the containment field’s area of effect.

While it may seem like a gruesome array, it is one blade you will never have to sharpen.
