SPECIAL FEATURES
  • Blocking - The Masquerade was inspired by the lightsabers used by the Jedi and the Sith. Too many Stormtroopers and operatives within the ranks of the First Order had been cut down time and time again by the aggressiveness and ruthlessness of the laser swords used by the enemies of the First Order. Swords which could kill a soldier in a mere few strikes. The engineers and military staff sought an end to this. Years of development led to something like the lightsaber, though smaller, weaker, and yet even better than ever before. Seeing as how the Masquerade Plasma Blade was influenced by the lightsabers of the Jedi, it is only natural for them to be able to block standard melee strikes from melee weaponry along with being able to be used as a shield from blaster fire. Although, the Masquerade can only handle a few shots from blaster weaponry as it wasn't made for the sole purpose of being a shield.
  • Size
    Shortened Length (5 Inches) - The shortened length of the plasma blade is four inches, and it is a rather...unorthodox and strange blade length given the purpose for the plasma blade being close-quarters combat. The shortened length typically see's less action than the other blade lengths and has very few uses as well. Although the plasma molecules are much more compact and stable than the standard length, there isn't much that this blade length can do effectively. This blade length is most commonly used in more dire situations when the user is in more imminent danger of dying. This length of the blade is less noticeable and uses much less power, though it cannot do as much damage as the other lengths due to its small size and it doesn't have good reach, meaning the user would need to get up close and personal with their target. Much closer than they would normally need to get than they would with the standard length.
  • Standard/Combat Length (8 Inches) - The standard length of the plasma blade is eight inches, not overly long and the most useful out of all the size adjustments for close-quarters combat. The standard eight inches is where the molecules are most concentrated and stable, save for the shorter sizes. The 8-inch length blade is the most commonly used blade length and the most effective for a large range of different scenarios.
  • Extended/Ambush Length (10-16 Inches) - The blade's plasma molecules are rather unstable at 10 inches. At this size, the magnetic stabilizers used to help the blade keep its shape are also unstable, making it possible that the blade could randomly close in when it's magnetic stabilizers stop working. Close-quarters combat isn't as...well easy or effective with this length of the blade, though it is still very much possible. This size of the blade, however, can help to catch opponents off guard quite easily mid-combat. One moment you and your opponent's blades are clashing, the next, you turn up the length dial and can cut your opponent, sometimes even kill them with this sudden tactic. However, when changing the length of the blade, there is a short delay of one and a half seconds when the length dial is turned before the length of the blade fully changes.

Strengths:
  • Interchangeable Size - The Masquerade Plasma Blade, or MPB, blade length can be manually changed through the use of a
  • It's a Lasersword...Kinda - The Masquerade was, more or less, based off of a Jedi lightsaber. It's sole intention, when being designed, was to try and mimic the super-heated plasma which was the blade of a lightsaber. The engineers of the Masquerade achieved their job, sort of. They did successfully make a laser sword of plasma, though it wasn't a Jedi lightsaber. The Masquerade while strong and powerful, cannot effectively cut through heavy metal or doors. It can, on some occasions, cut through light-weight to medium-weight armor and can cleave through flesh and bone rather easily if the strike has enough force and power behind it.
  • Lightweight - The Masquerade, when not fully activated, it basically an electromagnetic metal gauntlet. It is a rather lightweight and compact one at that, built with mobility in mind as to not weigh down users of the Masquerade. The MPB can easily be connected to the forearm/wrist through two nylon-metal fiber straps and one kevlar-metal fiber strap, each strap connected to each other through the use of a magnetic locker, which keeps the gauntlet basically locked to the arm until the magnetic locks are disabled.
  • Easily Hidden -
Weaknesses:
  • EMP's can be the Devil -

DESCRIPTION
(Describe some of the histories behind the submission. Give us some idea of how it might perform its function, what it excels against and what some limitations of it are. This is where you talk about your idea, flesh it out over at least a good-sized paragraph, and address some of the ways it might be used or abused. For especially powerful or ambitious submissions, a very thorough description is recommended.)
