It is a nicely done item. It has good background and logial explanations. It has a good feel and a nice shtick. The write up is a little disjointed in spots, but as a first post, you get two paws up. Go to Comment
A novel idea, but perhaps too novel. Is it magical or is it a cunningly made device? If it is a device, how do the linkages and small parts survive being bashed against things? How much maintenance does it take to keep it functional. If it is magic, what happens if it is dispelled? I'm not saying that every one of these questions need to be answered in the sub, these are just some off the cuff questions that came to mind after reading this sub.
Scrasmax: First there they don't require and magic after creation. and second if the minor magic in them is dispelled then there is usually a manual way to but them back into sword form until the magic can be re-instated. Go to Comment
Every now and again, the region encounters a dense blue fog. Every now and again, things disappear into the fog never to be seen again and things appear out of it from other places or world. It seems the fog is the material form of some minor diety charged with moving things around the universe to balance cosmic forces.
