I've read this over now several times, and the idea keeps growing on me with each repetition. As a general rule, I need to have a reason for something before I try using it in a story, and this really does help explain the mysterious helpful stranger. I like it rather a lot, actually. Excellent work, Pieh!
I kept waiting for the twist where The Friends turn out to be psychopaths who gain the party's trust only to turn around and utterly betray them.
Maybe I've become a bit jaded... Could be I just need a Friend to restore my faith in humanity :p
I think I need to mull this one over. My mind wants it to have a deeper meaning. A secret society which controls the fate of the world through divination and minor acts of kindness, perhaps, although I'm still not giving up on my psychopath theory.Go to Comment
I am just assuming that the sword is thus named in honor of one of their first noble nights that did great deeds. More of an homage to a great warrior vs. it requiring certain magic. The armor, being a true piece of equipment, albeit lost, seems to simply remain a legend and perhaps they feel it would be slightly blasphemous or in bad taste to name their own armor after a true set.
Just brainstorming a little about it. More about continuing to grow the legend of Huran and sprout out the idea. I might be a little biased about it too. ;)
I'm confused on a number of points. is it the armor or the sword that was magical? The sword got its magic from the armor? If Horan bequeathed Dren his armor, then why is it the sword of horan, and not the Armor of Horan? After he downed Hek, Dren then fled? Why was Dren after Hek?

I think this could use a little cleaning up; I'm gonna wait to vote on this...
