A doomday device as a sword. Why not a box or book or whatever? Is it just a simple activation, like flipping a switch, or does the sword only work for those who want the conflict to stop? A brute force artifact that acts like a kind of a-bomb is kinda blasie, but one that has purpose and drive is interesting.
Can the sword communicate? Is it's power always one hundred miles or is that a max range and it works on the need of the situation? Can the sword do anything else, like cut bread or poke a hole in an apple? Go to Comment
Wow. All good. Perhaps it should communicate. It couldn't cut bread or do anything like that because when you remove the blade from the sheath the detonation occurs. Maybe the range could extend. If you don't want peace you can't pull the sword from the sheath. Go to Comment
The point is that you're not supposed to draw the sword.
It destroys the user and everything around them, by a variable distance, so chances are, if it's connected to legends of peace as in the story of the sword, the drawer may end up destroying everything they wanted to save. Go to Comment
Well Capt'n, the problem with this is the same we have with nuclear weapons - some idiot might use them without considering the consequences. Like if you gave a nuke to some fanatic - he hight set it off in the centre of Tokyo or London or Washington, or the little capitol of the little country I live in, just to show 'them', whoever they may be.
Without fixing it, it should be reduced to a legend: "And once, upon a time, Sendar the Vaillant drew the SoUG and the hordes of the demons as well as the army that lured them to the Tomb of Gods was consumed in a blinding flash. It was where the Circle Sea is today..."
It needs a little tweaking, and, to be honest, I like my fantasy without nukes.
And yes, "lhb/hlllllllllllllllll" sure is great. Some live their lives without ever hearing such a wise saying ;) Go to Comment
A good idea, although you might of already heard of it from a T.V show. I think you know of it, its called batman. One of his enemies was a 30 year old women who had a disease that made her look like a 10 year old. She starred on a popular T.V show, but then she tried to act on stage(hamlet)and was fired. She then turned to a life of crime. Tragic, no? Go to Comment
