The Pilgrim's Torch
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Heroic)
Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-05-11 10:00 AM
I think this is more of plot hook than an item. Nonetheless I do think that to attain such power the user must do more than just pick up the nice shiny sword, and I like the idea that this must be in some way related to the mythology behind the item.

Maybe the knight who carries it on the pilgrimage gets to keep it for one year (much like a trophy cup). However, he must lead the pilgrimage again the next year or the swords' powers are lost. If he is unable (or unwilling) to do this, he must pass the sword on to another knight (i.e. retire).

The result is a powerful weapon to be sure, but intimately tied to a strong religious tradition and an important quest - if you want to keep the, you MUST perform the pilgrimage to protect and nurture the land.

Votes: Normally I don't rate magic weapons very highly (lets face it, magic swords of one kind or another are ten-a-penny). However the mythic background and implied religious responsibility make this one stand out from the crowd, so I'm going to give it 4/5. Go to Comment

This is great! A nicely iconic sword that invokes memories of Excalibur and Narsil.
Nicely done! Go to Comment

Because it was added on the 31.12.1969??? Data gone wild.

And "Pride and Prejudice" boils down to: "A young English woman from a peculiar family is pursued by an arrogant and wealthy young man." Or, "The Lord of the Rings" boils down to: "A hobbit learns that his magic ring is the key to saving Middle Earth from the Dark Lord."

So, I am not confident that I understood the point you made RGT, could you please explain? As for typos, I would rather point them out to the author rather than subtract for finding them. But thats just me:) Go to Comment

Loved this one as much as I did when I first gave it HoH. It is great, really. The tale itself flows like a poem, like the currents of a stream. Only things I did not like as much were the plots, but they were good old 4.0s. Won't pull your score down for that. The tale is fantastic. Go to Comment

Guys, we don't need this kind of behavior. It is taking us nowhere fast.

I strongly urge you to remove your vote RGTraynor, for it is blatantly obvious it was a vote made while under influence of strong negative emotions towards Echo.

You may very well honestly mean this is a substandard sub, that is your privilege, but your timing is off. Voting perfect 5.0 subs low during an ongoing dispute with its author is suspect at best. Go to Comment

5/5

Nice to have a blast from the past, even if it is from 69.

This I think is the most refreshing setting I have read thus far. Go to Comment
