Name

<Mani of Machine>

名前

『機械のマニ』


He is a cold-hearted heretic who, while still retaining his humanity in his machine body, has taken the throne from the ancient Gods through trickery and intrigue. His power is still immeasurable. To him, the existence of God and providence are irrational, and his plan is to destroy Gods and eventually achieve a society ruled entirely by machines.

Overview

Are you really a chunni if you have the skills to back it up?

Worship of Mani is best reserved for gunners, as dexterity and perception are suited for ranged combat, and gun boosts, well, guns. Characters who favour bows are more advised to worship his ex Lulwy instead, as she provides bonuses to bows and crossbows.

While Mani's combat niche may be considered narrow, he does grant several generic dungeoneering bonuses to spot hidden, appraisal, strategy and lock picking. Worship of Mani can help ease early-game woes when these skills are low, but it may be better to switch to another god later on when these skills hit diminishing returns and the bonuses become extraneous.

The android is a strong contender for an offensive pet with its triple ranged attack and ability to reboot, but like Mani's bonuses, it is focused in scope and doesn't have any utility.

Gaining favour with Mani is best achieved by heading to Aqui Teola and buying out the gunsmith's stock of guns, then heading to the cyber altar nearby and sacrificing them all. Since he now also accepts drugs as offerings, growing or harvesting crim and grinding it into crim powder, or simply offering the many drug-type potions all over the floor of nefias are also alternatives.

Mechanics

Machine Domination

Machine-type creatures which are hostile have a chance to be dominated by a believer of Mani and become the believer's follower; the dominated machine is considered a summon. The domination check is made when a machine targets a believer in its combat turn. Neutral machines may be attacked to turn them hostile and hence be dominated.

Machines which are residents at the player's home can not be dominated. However, as with the player, allies and enemies who profess faith in Mani can also dominate some machines who attack them.
