An Abstractum is a networked series of, as the name suggests, abstracted entities; these can take the form of weapons, tools, or even people, but all of them are connected by a few shared elements. Each of them is tied to one individual, who wields and directs them, and is, in turn, charged with protecting them. Though each Abstractum's abilities vary wildly between each User, they all function as amplification - a manifestation of the skills or powers held by their users, be they active or latent - and all are empowered with the ability to shift form or function to match the needs of their holders. For warriors or pilots, Abstractum take the form of weapons or vehicles. For mages or engineers, Abstractum take the form of magical implements or tools, enabling new manifestations of old talents and enhancing intellect and reflexes. For generals and captains, Abstractum take the form of armies and ships, providing power in numbers or in fortification, alongside the resources. But all of them must have their power built from their weak and vulnerable first days up to the true manifestation of what the Abstractum Network can bring into this world.
CORE: Each Abstractum may be damaged as much as one likes; a sword-type Abstractum shattered, a mech-type Abstraction beaten and dismembered, a base-type abstraction trashed. But each Abstractum has a Core Matrix, a bright, shining jewel featured on its Manifestation. If damaged, everything an Abstractum is able to do will be severely impeded, and it will take much more time to recover. If outright destroyed, that particular Abstractum dies.
SLOW START: Each Abstractum begins at a very low level. They are unable to access many functions, alternate forms, and Shift, and thus require much preservation during their early days and first fights. Their maximum power is difficult to achieve, and requires that they go through many, many conflicts before they can grasp their true potential.
VULNERABLE: Each Abstractum is vulnerable based on its Manifestation. The most obvious of these are tools or weapons, but even mecha or ship Abstractum cannot defend themselves unless someone's in the pilot's seat, or in some cases at the very least giving them orders. A sword-type Abstractum, no matter how powerful, can be destroyed if its holder discards it and is inattentive to the rogue stabbing the Core Matrix, and the same principle applies for all Abstractum regardless of form (though they are quick to call for their User's help). An Abstractum without its User or whose User does not wish to help it can be destroyed easily.
DEVOTION: Each Abstractum prizes, above all else, their User. No matter what kind of emotion they hold towards them, their User is always the focus. Very often this emotion is positive; they are extremely unwilling to waver from this, and will engage in suicidal efforts to protect their user in such cases. Their User's life is prized far above their own self-preservation in most, though not quite all, cases. It is very difficult to wield an Abstractum that has already bound itself to another User; passing the sword in the long term, so to speak, takes much work.LIMITED BY CONCEPT: While an Abstractum could theoretically apply high, absurd, unfair levels of enhancement to many individuals, in practice, the actual enhancement they are capable of giving an individual is limited by that individual's concept: A mundane swordsman cannot gain magical enhancement, an anti-social scientist cannot gain a general's tactical insight, etc. At times, certain flaws of the User may be expressed and integrated into the Abstractum, depending on how critical those limitations are to the User.

|Wrathborn's LOSAF Adventure||February 2nd, 2015|| Dear Warden,
I write to you from outside this Book of Heaven to beg for your mercy. We have never met, but fate has caused us to meet with one another in this way because of our natures and the natures of those within.
I speak of my friends, but primarily of Arthur Lowell, for my friends have come to you in order to seek him out. I admit, I do not know you. I do not know of your nature. Do you seek to give people their heaven out of love or hate? A wish for hope, or perhaps a perverse twist, I cannot tell, for I cannot view your pages.
I wish to believe the better of you, that you wish to truly provide happiness. But as people touch the lives of others, we create connections that cannot be easily forsaken. You are undoubtedly experiencing that now, and have experienced this before. The multiverse needs Arthur. Not just Afterus, but many other lands, including the world you reside in, depend on his knowledge, courage, and bravado in order to preserve themselves and find some semblance of peace. This is why he had come to your world in the first place. I do not know if you are cognizant of this, or if you care, but for someone to create a heaven, they have to be capable of some level of empathy, can they not?
We have come to find a release for Arthur. This is a fact that cannot be denied. The terms and nature of this release are up to you. I am fully capable of doing such if needed, however, if you push me and my friends to the limits. But there is no need for a confrontation, nor doe we have to come to dire ends. Anything is possible in this multiverse. If you care to name your price, perhaps we can find a way to come to agreeable terms. There has to be something we can do to solve your own problems, should they exist.
You may wonder why I seek to establish contact. Why I am working so hard when others are already working. I admit to a more... personal interest. I find Arthur to be a fascinating person. He is fun and exciting, and we share many interests. He shows surprising intelligence and maturity under the bravado, he is intelligent and handsome in his own coolkid way. I know there's a lot more under the shell he projects.
But I can tell hs is also in a lot of pain. He needs assistance, something that I do not believe he can receive in this world of heaven that you create. We cannot live in a Heaven forever. We will never grow, and become the kind of person we need to be in order to contribute to the world around us and make it a better place. I want to help him. I want to find a way to heal those scars and give him a way to face the infinite worlds, if not without regret, at least without pain.
I pray that you consider my words and that you will find it in your heart to relent. I am prepared to give a great deal to win his release from your land. This... Heaven.
I await your answer.
