Surtur
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Desert)
Iain's comment on 2006-05-04 12:23 PM
My favourite of the three giant races: grim, sinister beings stalking the desert. Does their honouring of the Lemeians show itself in any way? I remember reading somewhere of a race (can't remember if it was real or fictional) who showed respect for their bravest enemies by subjecting them to the most brutal tortures before killing them - they believed that by doing so they were allowing that person to truly show their courage and would gain honour/riches in the afterlife. I could image the Surtur doing this. Go to Comment
Aegir
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Water)
Iain's comment on 2006-05-04 12:18 PM
My least favourite of the giants - they remind me too much of the ones in the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant (though I realise this may not be intentional), in terms of mentality, seafaring nature and stone working. Good in conjunction with the other two though. Go to Comment

Nice. How long do the Jotun and Aegir live? You said the Surtur only lived a heartbeat (60-100yrs) compared to their cousins but didn't say the others' lifespans. Go to Comment

I agree, it seems rushed (and I would like to see more) but it is still an idea that made me really sit back and take notice. Go to Comment

Very very unique. Quick query - your synopsis said "Proof that sometimes truth is stranger than fiction." Does that mean this is based on a true organism? Go to Comment

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
