I tried to graze the other subs to see how they connected but didn't hit on a key. Is there something the owner does to activate these different powers? Quests or judgements he has to do for them to light up? I also didn't know what other items were meant "the others" as far as knowing when they were betrayed and losing powers. Seems that would be a good spot to itemize the items that were connected...or explain how the king links items with the ring if that is how it works.
Great description with an excellent background. I can see the Red Duke working his selfless act wishing to all that he could take the misery of all those upon himself. The knife, joining his mission and answering his call, slowly being inbued with the power. Its permanance then solidified in cloud of shadow wrapping the knife at the same time the Red Duke uttered a final agonized scream of triumph for the good he did.
Looks like a nice gift for an ugly, deformed chick. Anybody else is screwed!
Can it not be destroyed? Seems like at some point somebody would burn it or it would destroyed during the "capture" since the aim of the lust is the person wearing it, they wouldn't even notice the clothes they were shredding.
I won't say it isn't heavy handed or harsh. The fact remains that I know of a small chunk of great authors that have left or took an extremely long break because of the outcome of these type discussions.
As mentioned, the hope is that there won't be much need for it. Your tangible fear :) of the message is warning enough that most will comprehend. It is more of an acknowledgement of what has happened in the past and what will not happen in the future. This also now serves as a tool to link to in order to dissuade any of these types of discussions. As far as those articles, I am still undecided and much will depend on the Strolenati. Emotion in these things are the enemy, not necessarily the topic. However, many are unable to separate the two and that is the danger in these types of topics.
Bottom Line: It will be up to the Strolenati to determine if the Hammer is required. If the Hammer becomes necessary to maintain peace and tranquility, this rule serves as the justification.Go to Comment
