Interesting and a nice backstory. In order to let the other blade (Acer) come into play, perhaps he found a way to partially complete his purpose: he could restore his sister to her original form, but only at the cost of himself becoming a blade. Then you would have, essentially, a single NPC who could take the form of Acer wielding Xiphi or Xiphi wielding Acer. It might take a while for the PCs (and the other inhabitants of the world) to work out that they are really one and the same. Go to Comment

Re-voted after updates. They take it from good with lots of potential to excellent. Go to Comment

This is not really an item submission so much as a story. The story is superb, but you have done no fleshing out of the properties. This needs to be done, or else all is for naught. Not only do the sword abilities need to be filled it, but also the strengths and weaknesses of the blades while in human form.

However, I would definately have the PC's find the wizards journal.

Aside from that, Ian has a really good Idea here. It is a really good idea.

Thats all. Go to Comment

Not bad, not at all. I like how the items were presented, and they are certainly novel, if difficult to use. i think that the story of Xiphi and Acer could be one that is told among magi to remind themselves of the dangerous powers that they wield and how quickly a seemingly loyal creation can turn against it's master.

The duality is nice and though some more information on the swords powers could be useful though not 100% necessary. Some other quest ideas could be encountering Acer in his quest to recover Xiphi, the two having been seperated by some mischance or maleficum. Go to Comment

Very nice indeed!

Given the power, they seem to be a campaign-defining element to me - Excalibur can't match their properties...
I just wonder why there is no conflict between the two, given the fact that one is charged with abyssal energy and the other with celestial power.

for originality and hard work, and good editing based on suggestions, great job Arminas, you obviously tried to put some heart and soul into this!

and has anyone noticed?

Latin: Xiphi: 'sword' Acer: 'to cut'

In response to that, the point of leaving some of the powers unknown is so the GM can modify them to fit the story, should they like. I don't like it when there is no play in a storyline, because things always go differently when you have players involved. As such, I left them open on purpose. If you dont like it, I guess it's a difference of opinion, I'm sorry. Go to Comment

I get what all of you are saying, I guess its something of a miscommunication

They're unbreakable unless you break them together, like put both the blades together, then break them as one. Thats not to say they arent NEARLY unbreakable even then, but still.

And I really like Iain's idea, I think I'll use that Go to Comment

Updated: By popular request, what I would do if I were to make these into my game.

Updated Again: In agreement with Cheka, stats are bad. So there are descriptions. I hope those are not bad. ^_^ Go to Comment

Arminas's comment on 2006-02-25 07:18 AM
I did ponder that, the whole "two halves of a whole always in conflict", but they've always understood each other. So rather than clashing, they balance one another out. There are two ways to do anything with such radically different sides, I suppose. In this case I like this idea better.

As for the massive power, well yes. I do sort of intend to use them as a very major part of the campaign, prolly against some demigod or the like, lol. But then, so far I've only used Acer and Xiphi in a forum rp (actually I havent started yet), so I don't yet know how it would go. It's all up to the GM, of course Go to Comment

I agree with Mourngrymn, this idea has alot of promise, but really needs some detailing to make it really shine, as it is, it shows definate promise. What makes them different from a dryad, or an elf, how are they so tied to the forest, but are able to leaf it? (ha!) Go to Comment

This is a great idea, and I realized I did not have the time to vote on it. So: yay!

Interesting. I like this but I need more info on these beings for a defined vote.

The thought process behind this is great. It's perfect in fact, but it is missing something I can't quite put my finger on. Perhaps it is just my personality liking a lot of information to read about something. For something this unique I would have hoped for a few more paragraphs.

How do they interact with each other? Are they aware of each other? In times of great need, would they band together and form an army of these beings to defend them? Yo usaid they act as advisors? To whom and why?

I am not bashing this idea because I think it has a lot of potential, so I am not going to vote until I think on it more. Go to Comment
