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. ;)
