Religious Sects Suggestions?

Postby enginseer-42 » Sun Jul 12, 2020 12:30 am #569228

So, I think the religious sects thing that was added was pretty cool, and have noticed a pretty neat effect wherein Technophiles to really work mostly have to work with Science... which is kind of a neat add on. So I figured it would be neat to make a suggestion thread for new sects so ideas can be tossed around.

Using the Technophile as the blueprint....

Sect Name: Technophile
Description: A sect oriented around Technology.
Bible/Holy Book Effect: Charges Cyborgs. I think it might also repair robot limbs.
Sacrificial Offering: Charged Power Cells, scaling off the power in the cell.
Sacrificial Boon: Transforms the Recipient into an Android consuming 500 favor.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: Science.

Leaves us with a pretty clear cut 'blueprint to follow. And just to kick us off, I'll throw a few out there.

Sect Name: Druidic
Description: A naturalist sect.
Bible/Holy Book Effect: Removes weeds and pests from plant beds.
Sacrificial Offering: Wooden Logs or other plants?
Sacrificial Boon: Animal Companion, spawns a player controlled bear with the objective to aid their master, consuming 500 favor.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: Botany

Sect Name: Clock Church
Description: The Reformed Church of Ratvar
Bible/Holy Book Effect: Transmutes Sheets of Metal into Brass
Sacrificial Offering: Brass.
Sacrificial Boon: Gives the devotee a tool that lets them turn Brass into Clock-y furniture, Walls, and such at 500 Favor.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: Mining/Cargo

Sect Name: Death God
Description: A morbid cult of a god of the dead.
Bible/Holy Book Effect: Heals a large amount of damage but only when used on corpses.
Sacrificial Offering: Skulls
Sacrificial Boon: Skeletal Ascension. Spend 500 Favor, Transmute someone into a skeleton.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: Medical/Genetics

So, Any suggestions from out there?

Something involving Necropolis? There is also the Honkmother which is referenced for some of clown items. Beyond that I am not too sure.

Sacrificial Offering: Wooden Logs or other plants?
Sacrificial Boon: Animal Companion, spawns a player controlled bear with the objective to aid their master, consuming 500 favor.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: Botany

Their sacrificial offering should be ambrosia gaia. Then, you could make their alternate boon be the ability to (for, say, 50 favor) remove a golden tray's increased power consumption cost, sort of replicating the earthsblood effect from ye olden days.

Sect Name: Birdboat
Description: A sect oriented around the worship of geese, vomit, and bugs.
Bible/Holy Book Effect: Forces the bible'd person to perform a stun-less vomit (like the kind from the "yuck" chem). Maybe even set the purging parameter to TRUE for said vomiting.
Sacrificial Offering: Food with the "GROSS" foodtype.
Sacrificial Boon: For 500 favor, replicates the effect of https://github.com/tgstation/tgstation/issues/44884. Maybe this could even unanchor the altar and make it so that if the altar is moved, you'll teleport back to it and lose your ghost powers.
Suggested Departmental Synergy: The chef?

"Bible/Holy Book Effect: Transmutes Sheets of Metal into Brass"
You can already do this; dump a beaker of copper onto some metal sheets.

"Sacrificial Boon: Gives the devotee a tool that lets them turn Brass into Clock-y furniture, Walls, and such at 500 Favor."
You can already turn brass sheets into clockwork walls, brass boots (and other armor pieces), a statue of Karl Marx, and even a spinny-chair.

This would turn the chaplain into a doctor++++, instead of merely a doctor+.

"Sacrificial Offering: Shoes"
While hilarious, this can be cheesed by just crafting cloth into a shitton of shoes (or raiding dorms). Maybe add a flag or something to the shoes that people spawn in with that'd make them valid for being sacrificed to this sect?

As is the Clown's way
Stealing the entire station's cloth supply just so you can make everyone listen to ethereal honks is also funny

One bedsheet bin's worth of bedsheets isn't really "the entire station's cloth supply".
