    With the idea that these are for Armor in the end....I'll throw these suggestions in


    A spiked carapace Paragon: A small amount of damage will be inflicted upon any physical attack directed at you in the same room.

    A glittering crystalline Paragon: A small amount of damage will be inflicted upon any magical attack directed at you in the same room.

    I couldn't help it



    A glowing paragon of the holy light: Any unholy creatures (specifically classified as 'undead') that strike you may have their flesh burned, causing damage. Great for those avid undead hunters.


    A shining paragon of purest Iron: Any fae creatures (specifically classified as fairy, fae, Sidhe or Unsidhe) that strike you may have their flesh burned, causing damage. Great for those avid fae hunters.


    A coral constructed paragon: Any damage received from underwater creatures will be reduced slightly. Will additionally grant you a permanent water-breathing defense (second part is debatable). Great for those avid divers.

    Paragon that acts like the hallelujah harm and has a % chance of removing a random affliction on each turn
    Paragon that reduces the time to lay down harms, vibes, rites, etc
    Paragon that allows stun on parry (like monk guard)
    Stat paragons that stack with the stat artefacts but not with one another (e.g., l3 belt + con paragon would be total +4 con, but could not have multiple con paragons).

    A l2 one of the basic defense one that allows you to designate 2 of the basic defended (e.g, bount/cutting) and a l3 that lets you chose 3 basic defenses so that you are less limited by choosing specialty paragons

    I dunno about it being a paragon, but in some form or fashion this needs to be a thing, 100%.
    Huh. Neat.

    A paragon that briefly delays any damage received. Maybe just a portion of the damage, and/or only a chance of activating. For example, you're hit for 1000 damage, the armour activates and you only take 700 damage from the hit, with the other 300 coming in the next 1-5 seconds (maybe all at once, or maybe across 3 ticks of 100 damage or something). Certain finishers would be excluded from this. You could also have the total damage be increased (a 1000 damage hit is reduced to 700 initial damage, then 400 delayed damage for example).

    -Paragon that increases limb damage! (2 different levels)

    -Paragon that increases bow or throwing accuracy in general

    -Paragon that gives the mind sense ability.... everyone wants a balanceless sensing ability

    -Paragon that delays your death, able to be activated once an Achaean month... Much like the locket ability that was release awhile back

    Sure, but there's also a lot of fun and unique ideas. The pocket dimension from Sena for instance. That sounds like the most hilarious way to gank someone, or help someone get out of a city during a raid.

    (I'm likely guilty of this too, given my ideaspam, but) it seems from the initial set that was released, paragons are intended to give passive defensive or passive utility bonuses, and a lot of the ideas suggested seem to be solely aggressive or activation-based, or both, which is not a direction I'd like to see paragons go in, to be quite frank. We have other artefacts for that nonsense.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong, @Makarios or @Nicola
    Huh. Neat.

    To be honest, the ideas aren't necessarily things that particular player/character would want, but ideas we think may be of interest to other players/the judges. If they're outside the remit of what the judges want, they'll quite quickly discard them. The very fact they've run this completion and given such a long timeframe suggests they want a wider range of more creative/original/different ideas.

    On the list of passive effects:
    Paragon of Far-thought
    Acts as a telepathic antennae, meaning that the wearer can access city/house/order channels no matter how far from home.

    A paragon that makes it more difficult to instakill you with % based finishers. Instead of incinerate working at 50% health it would now require you to be at 40-45% health. Same with all other finishers that require you to be below a certain health/mana level or above a certain bleed point.

    Just adding:

    A paragon that reduce bleeding (moss tattoo effect), may use a burst effect like once an achaean day or month to be able to clot current bleeding completely(must not be prone and with eq/balance available to activate), after that any further bleeding may stack again normally.

    A paragon that has a chance to ignore stupidity. Stupidity will no longer causes you to do random emotes, instead there will be some kind of indication to that you are afflicted in replacement for doing emotes. Like "You are trying to do something stupid" or something to that effect.

    A paragon that alerts you when your torso had been broken. 

    Most combatants have a tracker for this anyways,  it would just be a convenience.

    A glass paragon - switches the armour stats of the wearer's armour with that of their opponent, automatically switches back on death of either combatant or after a 10 minute cooldown from last aggressive action. Can only be used once per Achaean day

     - Armour no long appears on listed clothes. (Orb of suppression affect only on armour)
      
    Taking some inspiration from that:

    An opaque paragon:
    -armour will now hide the clothes that would normally be worn beneath it.


    Because having people see all the clothes I'm wearing beneath my fullplate is always frustrating as heck.

    An undiscernable paragon.
    - causes the player to be seen as "a fully armoured individual stands here" or something to this effect. Would cause all says in the room to reflect that, hiding their identity. Makes them untargettable or for them to hit anyone (causes them to lose this effect if they do an aggressive action). 

    Rurin's paragon
    - access to rurin's wares through some rip in reality. Pipes tinderbox buckets you can buy from anywhere in the realms

    Opposites day paragon
    - swaps the Base cutting and blunt stat around. If they're not already the same. I can't remember

    Most armour isn't a full suit of armour, though. Being shown as "a fully armoured individual" only really makes sense if you're wearing fieldplate or fullplate.

    Depends on the type of armour. Fullplate has identical cutting and blunt stats (excluding extra bonus points), but as far as I recall all other types have different cutting and blunt stats.

    This is what you get when you offer a prize to the first person to suggest something, you get a whole shitload of brain dump with zero thought behind it in the vain hope that the scattergun approach will yield something the admin like and you get a "reward" for all your intense thinking.

    Dunno, there are definitely a few interesting ideas.

    @Shirszae I believe the dispute was in terms of spirit of the approach and if its one the administration would want to encourage, not its efficacy. Shoot enough shots and you are bound to hit. I'm reasonably certain they knew this would happen and were counting on it.

    Paragon of Command:

    If you are leading a party. There will be a percent chance for denizens will focus their attacks on you instead of your party members whenever they are being attacked.
    That is not an ordinary star, my son. That star is the tear of a warrior. A lost soul who has finished his battles somewhere on this planet. A pitiful soul who could not find his way to the lofty realm where the great spirit awaits us all.
