I was afraid the orphan thing would seem cliche, but it made more sense in my head. No dragon would accept a half-breed, and the drow would want nothing to do with him. Perhaps you're right about him looking too fierce to live in standard communities, though. I'll have to rethink him a bit. Go to Comment

In my world, dragons are usually shapeshifters, so it's not implausible (although anything sexual with a drow is kind of icky). Go to Comment

Heh. Okay.

So Thaxen comes from my high school era of RPing. He was supposed to be an adversary/antithesis of a elf/blue dragon hybrid. Clearly, I didn't get much beyond that stage in my thinking.

As Scras and Forganthus suggested, he obviously needed some more background and characterization. The "orphan to avenger" thing has been done to death, of course. So what could save him? Is there anything salvageable in this guy? Go to Comment

Current comments cover off all I could say, apart from the half drow half dragon being an interesting idea. Go to Comment

I echo what's been said. A little bit cliche, but well written.

Does he have any goals? How does he feel about dragons and drow? How does he feel about street-urchin orphans? I hope he gives them money. Go to Comment

I agree with Murometz and Scras... I don't really care that they wouldn't work in the real world. That doesn't matter to me. If I cared about that, I wouldn't have magic.
Great idea.

4/5. Go to Comment

MoonHunter's comment on 2006-01-27 09:57 AM
Well executed. Nicely done. But....

They don't really work as a weapon, as I understand the description. It is just a matter of physics. Sure these will be large and heavy, and this is part of the problem. You can use it as a heaven and earth staff, slashing and trapping. You can't get much of a cut going vs a human scaled target without more leverage or near superstrength. Mashing people over the head will work, but the weapon is not well balanced.

Yes, you can physically make them as a weapon. Yes they will inflict some harm. Yes, I can see them as a novelty weapon in a base gladitorial combat. Being used outside the gladitorial ring? Why? There are weapons that are vastly more efficient, they do as much or more damage, with a faster strike speed, with less weight (thus fatigue). Go to Comment

A rather implausable idea - war scissors - presented in an interesting and entirely believable fashion. Both unique and well presented. Go to Comment

This is the sort of weapon that a Troll or a Giant or an Ogre would use. Go to Comment

Murometz's comment on 2006-02-24 10:21 AM
yes...not practical or plausible at all. BUT, they are fun to visualize, and as Cheka said they work as weapons for impractical trolls and giants, or as Moonhunter said (and Dozus explained) would definitely work in a gladitorial arena, where the spectators are getting bored of the same ol' weapons. So, originality and a good back story, hence 4/5. "realism" in fantasy is a relative term. We could have dragons, demons, trolls, and ogres, but we draw the line at giant scissors...why?

Very impractical, but wonderfully different. I like these a lot, despite how impossible they seem to use. Go to Comment

Little idea here; takes scissors closes them and proceeds to thrust them into opponents neck, theeafter wrenching them open.

Moonlake's comment on 2013-06-02 06:08 AM
The core idea, I don't love it nor hate it, unlike others before me. The write-up is good quality and has added realism and extra spice to an otherwise plain and (to me at least) quite boring write-up of a particular type of weapon (I know there's weapon enthusiasts on this site but I'm just not one of them). So a score of 3.5.

Eeeek! The Jackass for fantasy. Personally against my tastes but I do see such types are sometimes necessary. I like that he doesn't take his loss of dignity so easily.


Plot hook:
Cleaners - a small gang of pickpockets has started to visit his performances regularly, of course not for the fun. Teldus or his manager will naturally want them to be removed, but can't call on his buddies for it could start a guild war.

Problem - during one of his exploits, Teldus has broken something _really_ important. A piece of ancient art, a holy relic, whatever. Promptly sent of on a quest, the heroes are hired to prevent him from getting killed. Go to Comment

Okay. my original comment was "too long". It may yet be. I did smirk and snort through the entire piece, which was a bonus.

I find him kind of like Joxer the Mighty, but without the warrior aspects. He is comedy relief for the campaign.

I found the roleplaying notes kind of short. Sure the rest of the pieces explains it, but I like bullet points in the rp notes. Go to Comment
