Like the idea behind the destruction of the dark moon tower, very inventive. I may be able to change this item slightly and use it for Mojena, perhaps a dagger that creates trees by taking the lifeforce of an animal. Go to Comment

Perhaps.

Perhaps a cruel twist is this: The painter uses inferior quality paints, and after several years the paintings begin to fade and peel away. The one healed by it may find old injuries, which had been healed by the painting, return.

Good quality oil paints will ensure a longevity far surpassing the persons lifetime, though the ones healed wont live longer. Go to Comment

A couple things: I am aware that you (silly) Americans/foreigners may spell colour as color, as well as several other words differently, but the Australian way, is 'Colour', so don't berate me for spelling it wrong :) I stick by my nationality.

This is my first hand at Mythical-writing, and I won't be satisfied until Captainpenguin grades me. Go to Comment

I'm happy with that mark for my first myth, hopefully future myth-writings will be more filled out :) Go to Comment

Boots Too Fine for the Earth
Items  (Clothes)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-04-20 10:44 PM
Brilliant. Just... brilliant. *Wipes a tear from his eye*

An awesome story behind it, An interesting thought that the boots are not magically enhanced, as such, but are simply... so fine. The use of levitation would be most useful when traversing across dangerous terrain or trigger-plates of traps.
A definite 5/5 from me. Go to Comment
Longbow of Light
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Heroic)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-04-18 08:46 AM
Very nice item with an enjoyable background. The curse permamently strikes them blind? or do the effects wear off after a few months of use?

That would be interesting, actually. The only way to stop the curse is to not use the bow for one year. But the blinded may want or have need to see before then, thus using the bow once more, and refreshing the year time limit. Go to Comment

Waahahahahaa! I love it! Very colourful description and background. I partiuarly enjoyed the metaphorical nature of it. This is an interesting change, as it differs from simply describing the item. I give it a 4/5, but most of that vote is for the mythical structure of the post. :P Go to Comment

nice. An odd way of travel, but a useful one, nonetheless.

I don't suppose I could make an item or two using Felonuis Twist, could I? :D

Whiteblade
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-04-12 08:54 PM
Hello, assassin dagger!

The first ability would be pretty useless to those with already clear vision, though it would help sharpen people eyesight, perhaps. The second ability is perfect for assassinations or thievery. An assassin can douse the light in a large hall, plunging it into pitch-black, then run up to the main table, kill the head figure and leave without tripping on anything or bumping into anyone.

A nice dagger. I would have liked a bit more depth on the background, but its all sound as it is.

Much improved, Grevenon :-) I revise my vote to 3/5. Keep up the posting, and remember to try and make it original, and with depth. Go to Comment

Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-04-05 11:22 PM
Does she want revenge for the people who misjudged her? Or does she just feel its time she got a share of life?

Well, I like evil, magic, undead and specifically necromancy, so you've managed to capture my interest. I must say this character is far more in-depth than a lot of posts, lately, so this is refreshing. Keep it up.

Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-04-04 08:32 PM
Hm, 3 hits and a 5 vote...

An interesting character, though I don't think its worth a five.

Is there any reason that he was skipped to another planet? Perhaps an enemy wanted him banished? I think this character needs a bit more depth

What pushes this character above the general populace, that makes her worthy of note? Perhaps more development on her background, pros and cons will help fill this character out. Go to Comment
Dragon's Blade
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Magical)
Shadoweagle's comment on 2004-03-30 06:25 PM
This item lifts above the most basic of things I have seen in here, but just barely. Perhaps giving a little more in-depth information on the swords magical properties would help. Also, perhaps a little bit of the background of the sword, too. How it was crafted, how it fell into Windsongs hands etc...

Good luck for future posts, however, by looks of this item, you have the ability to create some interesting posts, you just need to think over them a bit. {Something which I rarely do :-( }

You should post the websites you know in here, Tsar: http://www.strolen.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=424&start=120

I suggest, also, that you try to be in depth, and make your friends deal with it ^_~ A thorough submission is better than a shallow one where people have to fill in the void with questions to the author. Keep the ideas coming!! Go to Comment

Were it any of my characters, they would probably lose the dagger after turning it invisible ^^ An interesting weapon. Go to Comment

If it were to end up with someone already insane, the blade would do little more than help that person guide his insanity into attacking people. Go to Comment

I took the liberty of making a background/description of the Mui'aan fungus, as I thought I should try to make a bit of an explanation for the bloodlust created by the metal. Feel free to make suggestions/alterations/inclusions. I hope this is how you envisioned your metal, Silas. Go to Comment

Arkths or Ravagers: These are large landbound crablike creatures about the size of Grizzly Bears. They live partially in the astreal plane. Their food is magic. They can sense it at huge distances. Since spells and such are hard to eat (being in motion) and magical places are the equivalent of a sea of krill to them, they are looking for magic stashed in concrete places. Their primary food source is magic items, alchemical potions, and enchantments. They do a pretty good job of mangling/ eating the physical aspect of said items in the process of chowing down. These things will be the bane of dungeons everywhere, as they will slowly eat away much of the treasure (and the magical traps... so it can be advantagous to follow these things). Note: They will attack people with highly magical natures (i.e. high magic powers). They will probably kill the person in the process of sucking out the power.
