Ahhh, potential!
It is a refreshing and original item, only marred by a description that is too short and some minor spelling errors.

I'd give it a 3 with a potential for 4. But at EchoMirage's request I vote 4 Go to Comment

*yawn*
Balance sword. Alright. But was it just made by a wizard? I know I'm a stickler for this, but most of the time, I look for something a little more than "Archmage (insert name) created it", though at least you gave a reason.

3/5. Go to Comment

Actually .. a good and decent item, with an intersting story, a tool of balance.
Less suited for campains where NPCs range all shades of gray,and the pure white and midnight black are rare.
I'd give a 3,5 - I rate a 3, and beg the next one who rates to improve his rating by one point...

What could prove interesting: whatif the sword collects all souls, or replaces those captured with new ones... if it kills one more time, the oldest victim is set free to travel to the afterlife, while the new one must dwell in it.
Also to be considered, what if only a good person can call upon a good victim and vice versa, or, for a twist, what if only a good person can call an evil victim? Who, reluctantly, must serve, to the letter of his master's wishes... Go to Comment

3/5 A very good idea, a sword that likes to be held by a goody or a baddy.Very orginal.The back story could perhaps be a bit better, then it would be a 4/5. Go to Comment

Heh, this item is old school - for good and ill. That said it is an improvement on many, though not stellar.

The powers are only as munchkin as you let it be - a one/day special effect is not atypical and there are much worse out there.

I'm with Echo on this, a 3 it is. This has potential but I don't vote on potentials, only how it is. Go to Comment

Hey,

So I am looking for a sword....the kind you can't use everyday. Powerful enough to justify questing for it to take down a big bad, but with enough limits to keep you from hanging on to it and/or using it all time.

This is not it.
This lame balance sword was not it. I hate that whole take on neutral that it wants to establish a balance between the two. HATE IT.

Very munchkinesque.  This would have fit in perfectly well - typos and bad writing included - in D&D dungeoneering products circa 1978.  How sloppy is this?  Let me count the ways.



* No clear break between the past history and the original history.



* Why would using the sword in the original battle (which that manipulative bastard of an archmage set up in the first place) be considered "cheating?"  Exactly how were those students fighting - presumably to the death - otherwise?



* For a sword that purportedly seeks to strike a balance, it sure seems dedicated to punking out "evil."



* If no one's owned this after the "good" student, it's what, been sitting in that cave ever since?  Then who's been calling it the "Green Sword?"  Something that isn't in the public eye doesn't attract nicknames.



* The powers are completely munchkinesque.  Who would know to call the spirits in the sword?  Why would anyone imagine you could do that, without the metagaming info?



(Never mind that I hate alignment with a hot, heavy hate.)
