Need more Forcestone practise, i see… 😀
Bolo: “…dumb dog…” 😉
I think I need a list of the habilities that gives each stone.
As far as we know (i may forget one or 2 along the way)
Toadstone : generates humanoïd toad monsters by mass cloning a regular toad
Rainstone : summons rain and lightning
Dragonstone : transforms the user into a flying and fire breathing dragon
Angelstone : flight
Forcestone : force fields
Firestone : pyrokinesis
Faststone : super speed
Lightstone : control over light and light-based energies
Healstone : fast healing others’ wounds, and probably self too
Gravestone : reanimates the user. Needs to be rocked constantly, which drains the user gradually.
Endstone : power nullifier
Banestone : most powerful stone. Stops time, grants super strength and invulnerability, shoots dark energy blasts. Until now, the user was submitted to Simon’s mind controlling devices.
Headstone : memory extraction. Lethal for the mind of the target.
And a couple others like one inducing forced dance
Thanks!! That would help me a lot! Thanks again!
Sorry, turns out it was the Quickstone, not the Faststone. xD
Then again, translated into french, it’s the same word…
Also, the dragon form granted by the Dragonstone is known to change depending on the user. Trakhyl, for instance, was a very ugly dragon (to my tastes) which some said was based on a chinese type, I believe ? Kyri’s form and Colindra’s are opposite to each other : Fairy dragon and Black dragon from medieval fantasy universes
Great list, DK! Your knowledge of the Endstone world always amazes me. 🙂
And to add:
The Charmstone – influences people to do one’s bidding.
The Jigstone is the name of the dancing stone.
The Orbstone – Colindra’s original stone that created a maneuverable globe of light.
The Rainstone – The stone of the Kyri tribe.
I listed the Rainstone ! :p
And i lacked time to loof for Cole’s flashback, i knew i missed the stone listed in her early training. 😀
Also, we both missed the Homestone. No effect on its own, but stoner can sense it from afar, and if need be come to it in hopes of finding a new overstone.
I think we’ve now listed them all, at least those that have been revealed so far. 🙂
The Homestone! Good catch! You know this story better than me, LOL. 🙂
I’ve been noticing something along, but the last panel of today’s comic made it resolve itself into more of an observation and a question. It seems like any active Stone has an energy trail leading off somewhere. The trails don’t go to the sky nor to the ground but always somewhere off to the sides, or so it seems to me. I can’t help but wonder, where do those power lines connect to on their other ends? Do they all lead to the same place? Just what is up with those?
An interesting point indeed. I’d say the wish machine in the Eternity Spire being the source, that’s where the energy goes, getting more and more diluted as it gets away from the stone it comes from, eventually becoming so diluted it gets invisible.
In fact, the few stone rocking scenes that happenned on the Spire seem to confirm it
Interesting, interesting theory. 🙂 To be honest, I just let the lines flow because I thought it looked interesting artistically, but I really like the idea that the bolts lead to the Eternity Spire (at the speed of light). That means someone could be kicking back at home, say, and a bolt of energy rips past on it’s way from the Spire to a stoner in an unknown, far away location.
I like it. But then, all stoners should be able to locate the Spire, and I did set it up to be somewhat of a mystery. Hmmmm.
Not necessarily. To be able to locate it they’d need to sense the energy, since after a few meters or so it becomes diluted by the air it gets invisible to the naked eye. So if they can’t sense stone rocking residual energy, then they can’t locate the Spire easily, and the Mystery behind the location of the Spire is kept consistent. 🙂
It’s more or less like the ion trail behind spaceships. If you can see the trail with your eyes, it means it’s so hot it’s melt you down and so concentrated it’s like an atmosphere of ions, at least on a small space, which means the actual reactors of the ships are mearly a few dozens meters away from where you’re looking. If the ship is at a greater distance, the ion trail gets diluted and cooled down to the point of being untraceable unless you have specific external tools to help you detect it. I can easily imagine that in Endstone universe, science is not advanced enough to understand how to track down stone rocking residual energy, so such detection tools simply don’t exist. And the trail is indeed lost after a few meters. 🙂
You always have cool ideas, my friend. 🙂 Hopefully I’ll get a chance to develop this concept in future stories.
