Regalia
Abbreviation: REGA
Prerequisites: Trabe Chalice
Slot Cost: 2
Mana Type: Lunar Magic
Spell Type: battle / utility
Difficulty: intermediate
Prep (min/max): 15 / 100
Skill Range (min/max): 80 / 800
Valid Spell Target: Self
Duration (min/max): 11 minutes / 40 minutes
Description: Showcasing the sturdiness and versatility of Trabe crystal, Regalia ensconces its caster in glittering armor, provided they are not already protected as such. The caster's defensive skill and predilections will determine which type of armor the spell manifests, while knowledge of the corresponding crafting techniques allows for the creation of even stronger pieces. As with most Fabrication spells, Regalia requires direct starlight, bright moonlight, or an infusion of aura to properly function.
Effect: Creates crystal armor
Example Messaging: Cupping your palms skyward, you bask in a cascade of moonlight.

The moonlight coalesces into a rough-cut crystal chain balaclava atop your head!
The moonlight coalesces into some rough-cut crystal chain gloves around your hands!
The moonlight coalesces into a rough-cut crystal chain hauberk around your body!
Roundtime: 2 sec.

  • Requires unobscured starlight, an unobscured bright moon (Xibar or Yavash), or Starlight Aura.
  • Additional mana adds duration and reduces weight.
  • Can be refreshed fully at no starlight aura cost.
  • Cannot be dispelled.
  • RELEASING the spell will destroy all summoned armor at once.
  • You can REMOVE individual pieces to destroy specific armor pieces without affecting the rest of them.
  • Warning messages occur starting at 2 minutes from expiration.
Your carapace hauberk glimmers weakly.
  • The armor type defaults to your highest armor skill. The armor type can be specified (light, chain, brigandine, plate) if you know the Bespoke Regalia metaspell.
  • The spell defaults to covering all body parts. Narrower regions or specific body parts can be specified instead if you know the Bespoke Regalia metaspell.
  • Specifying a single body part (cap, neck, eyes, waist, hands, legs) will only create armor for that specific body part if possible.
  • Specifying one of the possible regions (head, body, shirt, torso, arms) will attempt to fill that region with a single piece of armor. The default cast does this as well, but for 3 pieces of armor covering the head region, body region and the hands. If a single piece of armor can't be created due to the region being partially filled with other armor then the spell will fill smaller body parts as per the list below, continuing until all of the appropriate body parts are filled. E.g. if you're wearing a tasset but use CAST BODY which normally creates a hauberk it will instead create arms, legs, and chest/back torso pieces.
CAST - head, body, hands
CAST HEAD - head, eyes and neck (use CAST CAP if you want to cover only the head)
CAST BODY - torso, arms and legs
CAST SHIRT - torso and arms
CAST TORSO - chest/back/abdomen OR chest/back and abdomen (light, chain, brigandine only) OR chest, back and abdomen (plate only). This will always create the first option if possible.
CAST ARMS - arms and hands
  • It is not possible to specify chest/back, chest-only or back-only coverage even though the spell can create carapace, chain and scale vests and plate breastplates and backplates. The only way to create these pieces is to use either CAST or CAST {body|shirt|torso} while wearing an armor piece on your waist.
  • Likewise, it is not possible to specify arm-only coverage even though the spell can create vambraces. The only way to create vambraces is to use either CAST or CAST {body|shirt|arms} while wearing an armor piece on your hands.
  • One oddity is that the CAST BODY and SHIRT options normally create a hauberk, shirt or half plate which do not have hand coverage, but if these cannot be created it will attempt to make sleeves which do cover the hands.
  • If removing either the plate breastplate or backplate in order to switch armor types via the spell then make sure to remove both of them. Because the other armor types do not have chest-only or back-only coverage options, leaving one of them on will result in the other location being exposed.
  • Light armor created by this spell can be enhanced by knowing the appropriate bone armor carving technique. Chain, Brigandine and Plate armor use the appropriate armorsmithing technique instead. See the chart below for which techniques you need for specific pieces.
  • It takes 12 armorsmithing techniques and 4 carving techniques to be able to fully upgrade all possible pieces of armor created by this spell. If you only want to use a specific combination of armor pieces you will likely require fewer techniques than this, so having all of them is only necessary for flexibility.
  • While Enrichment is active, Regalia will gain +1 tier to armor quality.
  • The caster must be free of armor, whether mundane or summoned, in the area to be covered or it will fail with the following message. Note that the spell will fill in available spaces with appropriate armor pieces if the desired armor was only partially covered, so the only time it will completely fail is if there are no available spots to fill at all. Even then it will still successfully refresh the duration if the spell was already in effect.
Rebuffed by your existing clothing and armor, the liquid light finds no purchase for taking physical form.

Templates

  • Conjured armor is of the form <quality> crystal <template>.
  • Quality and tier are determined by the armorsmithing and carving techniques known as well as while under the effects of Enrichment.
  • The templates are all standard crafting templates aside from the weight which is significantly lighter and further reduced by casting the spell with more mana.
quality requirement rough equivalency
rough-cut tier 3 --- average storebought
faceted tier 4 Knowing the appropriate crafting technique player crafted steel
 ??? tier 4 While under the effects of Enrichment without knowing the appropriate crafting technique player crafted steel
 ??? tier 5 Knowing the appropriate crafting technique while under the effects of Enrichment player crafted rare metal
