Oh,and I have to say I like the idea that Kira and Rachat may be siblings. Makes a possible show down all that more exciting. Go to Comment

I said I was unsure whether to post her - I had her made up long before Rachat, and was quite dismayed when he appeared - a day or two before I wanted to post her originally.

She does not loathe her father - she's pissed at him because he's responsible for her existence, and has not showed up for twenty years, in some of which she's been through hell.

Actually: they may share a father, she and Rachat. They may meet at some point - as allies or enemies.

I linked her to Rachat. "See, he's not a hellspawn, he's just... an old man who's.. eh, immortal, and has these burning eyes and yes, weird teeth and stuff. Yup, he's totally O.K." Go to Comment

Though, their fathers seem a bit different... may be the same fiend still. Or they may be COUSINS.

As for linking, write something like "itm=23" into the linking section at the bottom of the post. Go to Comment

5/5

For the others of you who are voting 5's and not commenting, shame on you. If it's that good, you should leave a comment, even just "Wow".

Wow.

Seriously though, this is a great item with a great story. It's almost too much story. Almost. I almost voted 4 because the sword is more like a plot device than a weapon, just something to move the story along than an item with it's own worth, but it's a really good story.

Good work! Go to Comment

I was the other secret 5/5 voter. I refuse to say "wow".

To quote Neo, "Woah" Is that better?

This is almost a campaign seed. If you put this item into your campaign, without reworking it seriously, you have defined much of the setting, major organizations, and the main artifact of faith. Go to Comment

DL is entirely correct that magic swords are a dime a dozen, yet this one stands out quite effectively. The backstory sets it in high regards, with other luminary blades that were as often plot devices as they were weapons of magic power, such as Excaliber and Durandahl. The story is excellent and reflects the journey of the hero who in coming to terms with power must make the ultimate sacrfice at the apex of his power. Kudos for creating a truely 5/5 post Echo.

Thanks a lot...
The story just came over me, I had to write it - I ran from the kitchen to the computer to post it before I forget.
I will edit the powers into a more structured form as soon as i have the time, though.
Hm. As for the "another magic sword?" thing... what other archetypal knightly weapon is there? Should I have made it a nunchaku? Guessed so :D Go to Comment

At last, after all the 0/5,1/5 and 2/5 things, a real jewel of an item,a magic sword that stands out from all the rest. 5/5 Go to Comment

Dragon Lord's comment on 2005-05-11 11:00 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.
