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
Good questions! The rub is that the writer of these logs didn't know the answers. Anyone could speculate that it would take even longer to teleport a human since the cat took so long to fully teleport. Since particles are reassembled in space relative to the particle scanning micromachines, maybe Alexi simply moved his head slightly during the scanning. Maybe the particle reassembly wasn't accurate enough. Maybe ... well I don't want to give away too much. I'm planning another sub to follow up. Go to Comment
