I hope you finish this soon, I really liked it. It has a very old-school feeling to it. I would need a plot hook to make the players WANT to find that tree. Other that that I would probably drop the snake speaking, but that's just me.

Heady stuff Captain. Go to Comment

Well, I leave the mechanics to the experts, though the way I envisioned it working (as a parrying weapon, and I am a complete novice in these things) was to catch swings of a sword in between the two prongs of the blade, leaving the attacker open to a reprisal. Go to Comment

I am fond of the story of the knife. I am fond of the color it can give to cultists or to a regiment. I also like the use of them as symbols.

The trained swordsman in me, however, asks for clarification of the shape vs purpose(Please understand, this is just what jumps out to me as a fighter). You are describing a blade shaped approximately like a Y, if I understand correctly. This makes a great offensive weapon, when sharpened on both sides of the Y, if somewhat breakable. The wounds are horrendous. To break a weapon, however, you pretty much have to catch it on your primary sword, slide it down to the guard, and in the split second between block and recovery, apply the dagger, lever the two, and break the weapon thusly. Not a simple task. Go to Comment

The only real use I can think of outside of fishing is either for throwing, as it has two blades and could be balanced very well, or used as a main gaunche would for a defense device used to parry attacks. Go to Comment

Erm...Mehbe you can explain how they're used? I mean, the only way I'm thinking they'd be used was a straight on cut, catching portions of the target with the sharpened inside edge. Otherwise, it seems good, just not totally fleshed out. Go to Comment

Maybe some enterprising souls took the idea of the Median forked dagger a step further by slightly elongating and widening the forked blades, for the sole purpose of blinding individuals (bursting eyeballs!) with short quick thrusts. This might be a favorite method of some cult that enjoys blinding people (for whatever reason) in lieu of killing him. Not sure if it's practical but it's nasty. Go to Comment

A good weapon to use to make otherwise boring cultists unique.

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-06-13 02:17 AM
I had suggested their use as sword catchers at one point, but I was picturing the blade of the dagger as a more elaborate "Y", with a narrower arc between the paired blades. The blades would need to be quite stout with projections on the inside angle or sawlike serrations that would tend to catch weapons when the wielder parried with the forked dagger. This would allow the wielder to "lock" a parried weapon in place with a twist of the wrist. Go to Comment

As a complete novice in weapons, I think this sub does great in that it's not just abt the weapon but also contains elements that adds colours to a typical fantasy setting. Go to Comment

I kind of like it, too.

These creatures bring some questions with them, especially about their relation to the ancient city... is it their natural home, a place they are bound to for some reason, or is it a gate of sorts, between their world and ours...

But Captain's posts often pose questions that are better left unanswered. :) Go to Comment

The first things that come to mind are barrages of questions, such as what was the Doom of Gor-Kashesh, what are the goals and desires of the Color-Wraiths, and other such things. But in proper Lovecraftian fashion, learning the answers to these questions fall into the realm of things not meant to be known by man, and perhaps it was these answers that destroyed Gor-Kashesh, and drive the madness of the Color-Wraiths.

Curiosity killed the cat, as the expression goes.

Nicely done. Go to Comment

Truely excellent. I was thinking of subbing a critter that looked like what I see when I have migraines, and this critter fits that bill!

Kudos! Go to Comment
