Love the story, it is not realy an item though, I would say it is much more of a plot hook.

On the other hand, if the sword is found, then you do have a lot of back-ground for the item. However the item is just an item. Go to Comment

The story's not bad. The item itself is just a sword some guy used to kill other guys. Go to Comment

...No...Actually a Kaiser is a bladed staff...It's like a spear, except with a one sided blade at the end...Did you look at all of the definitions of Kaiser? Go to Comment

I like the way you presented it, but what the hell is a "Tribal Kaiser"? Go to Comment

Hmmm....Merriam-Webster defines it as:
Tribal: Of or relating to tribes or tribal groups
Kaiser: German corruption of Caesar. Takes on the meaning "emperor"

So a "Tribal Kaiser" would be a the emperor of the tribe. Go to Comment

It had only one definition of kaiser.

That still doesn't explain to me why it's "tribal". I saw nothing in there to indicate "tribal-ness" except for the description "Tribal Kaiser". Go to Comment

The wakizashi is a short, knife-like blade used in combination with a katana by Japanese samurai.

Just because it's crude doesn't mean it's tribal. Not all tribal things are crude! Go to Comment

Ah, but a Katana isn't as long as most people make it out to be. A Katana is only slightly longer than a short sword. The really long swords are called o-katanas or daitos (But NEVER dai-katana.). Go to Comment

Fine, if you like. Just don't let me catch you calling a daito or o-katana a "dai-katana"! Go to Comment

Well actually you didn't imagine it well.
Crudely cut branch, latched with a crude blade. Where the blade is latched there are six cloth ribbons coming out. I imagine it as being Tribal, entirely. I guess you couldn't find Kaiser. Sort of how I couldn't find Wakizashi. Go to Comment

But the ribbons. Imagine what it would look like. It would look Tribal. It's origin is of a tribe, but that has no matter...Hm...I guess it's getting low ratings because people don't really like it...
A Wakizashi isn't knife like, it's only ten inches shorter than the Katana. It's short sword like, about. The Tanto is knife like. Go to Comment

Thanks for your rating man, it jumped it up another flame. You like it...You really like it...~Sniffles with a smile~
Even so, a wakizashi is only ten inches shorter than a katana. It's really not "knife like". Go to Comment

Nice.A spear that drains the energy of the holder.Very useful until you pass out in the middle of the battle and get trampled.I feel sorry for the boy.I wonder why he was not found. If the spear is taken from his skeliton, does his spirit rise? Go to Comment

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
