Well yes. You also have to be able to sufficiently visualize and comprehend your target. This limits the number of people who could, even remotely, target a God (unless said being manifested upon the world and you saw them) (or large enough group). One of the game functions of The Weapon is to give an explanation why the Gods do not manifest on the world any more.
Imagine what would happen if one removed that god's impact from the world....
Imagine the time between the instance of destruction and the settling of time, especially if that God did something important (like create a part of the world). The world would start coming apart. I assume another deity might travel back in time and undo the guy who was going to use the weapon... or another deity might be forged from the rush of energies entering that god based vacumn.
The world changes. The GM gets a moment of edit.
This is the joy of this weapon for a GM. Continuity is a watch word for GMs. Yet, here is the perfect mechanism of edit. The GM could radically alter their world, removing something that bothers them, ... perhaps letting the player and characters remember the world the way it was before (for a while)... and the edit could be simply a use of GalwaEnchena. The players investigate this dis-continuity and discover the "End of all Conflict". Go to Comment
The reason I am asking is have you ever tried to play all Ninja game? There is a reason that most Nipponese fantasy games suggest you don't. It becomes a difficult game to play because you are entirely outside the social norm of Nippon and you have to contend with all the Ninja special abilities and tech.
From the Books of Corvus (the early volumes), "You could always tell a gate that led to or through the Shadow Realm. There was this "slime" that always built up around the edges. Slime is not quite the right word, as that would imply a texture or touch. It was nothing but shadow, no temperature, no real weight, just a volume of shadow. Some guardians of the gates collected the stuff with a religious fever, but most gate guardians simply scrubbed the stuff off and tossed it in the trash." Go to Comment
From the Book of Corvus (The Later Volumes part IV), "The experiment to make a shadow orb failed, though it did make an artistic splat upon the walls when the sun shined early in the mowning. Stopped staff from cleaning it up by turning one into a Wombat. I hate repeating myself. "

The damm is a quite cunning application of strategy. The damm will create quite a flood once broken and the water diverted to their target. The taget could be a town or a keep. It could be the regular camping spot for the tax collector and his soldiers. Go to Comment
This is a very cool item to exist on a world. It has excellent potential for story lines and story conflict... (A night time festival is coming up and a noble buys up the stock of sauce for his festival... now how are the theives expected to see in the dark to pilfer the homes of those that are at the festivals...)
Hmmm. I wonder if Corvus invented the original recipie.... nahhhhhhhhh. *cue laugh track* Go to Comment
Eight hundred years. Two to three weeks an orb. Do the math dude.
More seriously, I would figure there were a few hundred orbs of various powers (The Orb of Humdity Control and the Glow Light of Insect Destruction to name a few lesser ones) and a few other items (Staff of the Magi for the Orb's original home, the fire ring, the rings of servant calling.. etc). Like a dungeon, normally the item was put to a different use originally. It is only when put in a different situation that the orb's power becomes totally apparent. As I figure out a few of the more interesting ones, I will put them out.
I am thinking of using the orbs as the basis for a fantasy world. Figure most Wizards (magik users of great skill... not the class) make one or two items in their lifetime. Corvus the Powerful, Corvus the Wise, Corvus the Mad, choose a title made enough of them that he has changed the face of his world... (especially after the explosion at his tower altered magik on the world since then...)... I guess I better start that thread huh? Go to Comment
