Long Lost Nostalgia

Skill

Image toycatalog.jpg
Description You don't really remember having been a kid and growing up when they had good toys. Or really much of growing up at all.

But your mind is still filled with dancing memories and dreams of the toys of old. If you could just pluck them out of your mind somehow, you'd be the perfect Santa Claus.
When Used

Something about better times tickles at the corner of your memory. It almost dares you to dwell on it, drowning yourself in memories of better times.

Using a nostalgic toy catalog

Uses

Consumes Eclipse in your system in exchange for summoning various items. The cost of summoning increases each time you use it in a day, but resets at rollover. Other Etheric-type effects that can be used to power etheric techniques can also be used (see etheric for details). This skill and other Summoning Skills share the same counter for summoning costs.

Summon Cost Total cost
1 1 1
2 2 3
3 4 7
4 8 15
5 16 31
6 32 63
7 64 127

You kick back and think about better times. They're times that never really happened, but that's the magic of nostalgia.

If you are not Etheric:

You're not really in the right state of mind for that right now.

If you do not have enough energy of Etheric to focus even once:

You don't feel up to doing that again right now.

Summary of Techniques

Using a tin soldier or tin drone while Etheric lets you fight an animated version of the item. If you beat it with one of the following items equipped you learn a special technique. Tin opponents block all attacks except those based on a stat getting a bonus from a "nostalgic" effect. Most of the techniques do extra damage with the appropriate nostalgic item equipped.
