Not bad at all. I would still like to see some ability or spell that is unique for the school, or at least easier to cast, than for other schools. Not that isn't an interesting option by itself! Go to Comment
Ah, a good, new-fashioned way to cast spells, that takes the repetitiveness out of it (wave, chant, boom, repeat). I like the image of a noble at a grand ball illuminating him and his partner with a few floating orbs of light. Good job, Grey! Go to Comment
I suppose someone of amazing talent could do both Spelldancing and a purely vocal spell at the same time, I don't see why they couldn't. Honestly, I'd be more interested in seeing someone who tried to pull it off and failed, the results could be hilariously painful. Go to Comment
This is indeed a clever new way to look at spellcasting; I'm already wondering if dancing could be combined with chanting to increase a spell's effectiveness. Kinda like a warrior's "dual proficiency". Go to Comment
The Crusader is good and the Berzerker is okay, but the Goretooth enchantment, that is a a cinematic thing of beauty. A quiver of Goretooth arrows could be more than enough to rout less than veteran troops, or to panic animals. Very nicely done.
As an afterthough, I think I should suggest that these weapon types should be broken into three subs or stubs. Go to Comment
Although I do not have a specific favorite that I can name, I do find them all to be very usable. A PC gets a Berserker Blade, and goes a little crazy. A high profile criminal fakes his own death with a Goretooth weapon, and shows up after a string of murders carrying a Crusader Sword. The list could go on. Good sub, Grey!
(I remember the Goretooth weapons from before, and I like them as much now, as then). Go to Comment
While not technically cursed, these peculiar weapons have nonetheless resulted in a very high number of user deaths. the blade of the sword is actually a liquid, held in place by a number of complicated enchantments. Any movement that the user makes with it is greatly enhanced, for example: If the user were to be holding the weapon in a fencing position and moved the blade to the right (not swinging, just moving the entire weapon) the blade would bend, starting at the tip, in the direction that it was moving. Someone experienced with one of these could block an attack from behind quite easily, but many have wound up accidentally impaling themselves while trying to learn. Wildly swinging one of these will quickly kill the user, but fencing attacks will gain a lot of range as the blade darts forward. Use at your own risk. Go to Comment
An old, misanthropic and paranoid man feels his time is coming. There are sons to leave his fortune to, but they are not worth it, not a dime do they deserve! And he doesn't really trust anyone else. And so he has made a decision: as a part of his last will, his henchmen are instructed to burn and destroy all his holdings, buildings as harvest. The lands shall be auctioned off, the proceeds used to pay the servants. Nothing shall stay behind. Nothing.
Depending on the status of the grumpy old man, this weird occurrence may be only a family drama, or it may end up bringing an entire region into chaos. Or the son(s) have found what should happen, and want to prevent it before their sick father dies.
