With the new Tech revolutions book out we got something cool for everybody. What struck me as unique is my favorite class, the Solarian, got a new cycle. I'm intrigued because this one seems to have cool setting hooks and somewhat expands it if you really want to separate the Solarians from the Electromagni.
Setting: How will Solarians view the Electromagni in your setting? Will they be viewed as heretics by those in the Cosmonastery? Do you think Kasathans dislike this upstart faction? Where do you think they would have their largest temples? I believe the Liavaran moon Arkanen would fit, as it's constantly storming there. The two native species, Dirindi and Sazarons, would make natural Electromagni. What neat name would their centers of worship be, Electemples? Do you think they're more science oriented, as a mirror to the more mystical leaning Solarians? How does electromagnetism work in a spiritual view of the universe? Something to do with how all living and constructed creatures use electricity to function, which technology also relies on? Tapping into resistance to temper themselves spiritually?
Mechanics: So the lightning attunement is easy to understand with its changes. Plasma sheath now covers your weapon in electricity, ray of light becomes a lightning bolt, constellation blasts are now miniature lightning storms. The difficult part for me, is resistance. What does that effect look like for Solar armor or a weapon? How does controlling resistance create wormholes, or allow you to harm with Crush? How do these new aspects of the cycle work with Sidereal influence? I'm not experienced with electromagnetism/physics to think of fitting lore besides ts magic.
Whats everyone's thoughts? I'm excited as my favorite class has a cooler aspect I think I'll stick with.
