It seems unwieldly and complex, then again there is a weapon for everyone. Does the extra weight deal extra damage? Is this weapon culturally significant to some people? Was it created for a special purpose?
Cool thought! I chose mercury because it weighs a ton and because Mercurial is such an awesome word, but you could easily fill the container with poison to lace the blade, an acid, or even a flesh-eating bacteria. Kudos Go to Comment
Good point. I talk about "hands of a graceful warrior" and then say that it's a heavier than normal sword. The sword is actually heavy only while in sword form. In whip form, it should be much easier to fling about. Go to Comment
I couldn't work out how to make it a light and graceful weapon in longsword form. I imagine that it's a little clunky until unleashed. In whip form, it could be very quick and deadly. I do agree that it would take an exotic proficiency to adequately wield, and it probably would be much more painful to be struck by a 10 pound sword tip being whipped at you. Go to Comment
