It simply could be some natural quality of the wood, or one bred into it by the many generations of the Astormen. These changes that make it a very good wood for bows also make it difficult to grow without the constant tending of the Astormen, which explains its unavailability outside of their lands.
I had a hard time describing my mental picture. All that exists in the room are the forms of the real world statues as if lit by an overhead spotlight. They could form a circle, or any other arrangement, but it would take little time to walk fromone to another, unless of course there were hundreds attuned :)
I was thinking of allowing animation, but i like the low-magic/espionage side better. Go to Comment
I like this idea and would like to see some more bones on this on. I think it has potential to become the seed for a 30.
Jimmie is a war-dog, employed mainly for sniffing out IDEs and the like. With the greater capabilities of being a Takamoto dog, he does more then simply finding the devices. His collar is outfitted with tracking devices and a small explosive charge. This charge detaches allowing him to position it with his mouth. A video feed with two-way communication is provided to allow him to access both his handlers, and secure databases for tactical/disarming data.
Jimmie has seen too much, even for a dog. He has had blood on his fangs and has been nearly killed by an IDE that was trigged by his electronics. He survived that encounter due to poorly crafted explosives. He has a strong taste for alcohol, but cannot hold his liquor very well, which has caused some serious problems in the past. Go to Comment
