I think this is the only uber-weapon entry I have actually liked. It is all in the presentation. Two thumbs and a tail up. Go to Comment

Now this is what I am talking about. I would have to agree with MoonHunter that I dont like most magical weapons, and certainly uber-weapons, but this one is good. It is also in the presentation. Kudos Saemond.

Only flaw I could find is that the sword weighs 43 pounds. (1 stone=20 pounds) Being an uber-weapon this could be an intential flaw.

If you say mile, dont be surprised when everyone assumes 5280 feet.

When you say stone, dont be surprised when everyone assumes 20 pounds. We dont know the specifics of your game, and when you use the name of a real world measurement dont be surprised when we use it rather than what value you have added to it. Go to Comment

I think that is a good idea. It might give some other gamers some ideas on divisions of weight and measurement.

I blame my education, my school teacher told me stones were 20 pounds. As for the tone of my comment, I apologize, I was checking the site after pulling a 12 hour shift and was cranky.

Big props, great item. Go to Comment

Hahahah, yeah, except in my system, stones, don't weight that much.
But yeah, for the PCs to get a hold of the item they would have to kill the Hero, tar-Kathne (to follow), and then they'd be set apon by the Fief of kathne, and experience the wrath of a Sun God.
not to mention they would become an instant target of powerful beings such as elementals, gods, dragons, spirits etc. Go to Comment

Good Point,

However.... in brittish imperial units a stone is actually 14 Lbs, and in Troy or Roman Units it is closer to 17, etc etc. there are several variations of "stone"
Regardless, i think it would be an error to assume "20 lbs" as that is not used on earth as far as I am aware???

I agree i should have been more specific, originally, but I have since revised it, I think people need to have some creative license in this regard, because what exactly corresponds to a league, or are your ounces, Troy, Alchemical, or Brittish imperial? I guess you could get even more confused if you didn' specify weight ounces vs. fluid ounces in certain cases. Yet that is hardly ever specified.

Maybe I will make a rules and measures link for my world. Go to Comment

I agree with Scras that when a pc uses the weapon it will make them slow and vulnerable to attack, unless the pc was very strong and able to wield it without the weight being a problem, and it is very good

And?
Interesting intro- I would have expected the real character to have more to do with it. I don't get any sense of Derry's personality or needs or anything such as that.
Thus...

I must say that I really liked this. Great descriptions of how it looks. The magic is nice and moderate with a nice unusual spirit resistance with it. The funeral pyre was an awesome idea. Go to Comment

It could be used as a form of punishment for a traitor. Dress him in the armour, execute him and deny his body cremation, burying it instead, trapping the soul within the rotting corpse.

Maybe after a few centuries the trapped soul would animate the corpse, creating a skeliton warrior, who would go after the decendants of those who trapped him in his dead body for so long.

And you have a mini-quest for the PC's to do. :)

Wulfhere's comment on 2007-04-09 11:39 AM
An armor of antiquity, with many interesting details. The armor is awfully powerful, with no apparent weaknesses, but may be suited for a game of epic scope.

I like the history provided for the armor and the description given.

I would like to see it revised to make it easier to read: It seems as if it was checked for spelling, but not reread afterward to ensure that everything scanned properly. Go to Comment

Burrito? Burrito is an acceptable name? Sure, if you're a tasty Mexican dish...
Oh well, different language, different culture. Nobody in that world would know what a burrito is. Go to Comment

Which is a perfectly acceptible first name, though a triffle stupid. It is like naming your child Seymour or Ezekial or Greengrass, or other geek/ nerd names. It is the kind of name that mkes children pick upon you. One of the reasons the name is not commonly used. Of course, if it was a family name... you are kind of stuck with it.

Saemond's comment on 2004-08-22 04:47 PM
Hahahha, yah that point was actually to give him a littel of a mischievious name. When I threw him into my campaign the characters were hearing the people talk about the 'fabulous Burrito" or how "Burrito-style-hats were the rage among the nobility" and when they heard that "Burrito was at a local restaurant they couldn't wait to get there!"
Of course they were out-of-towners and hardly spoke the local language. So i kinda intended to have it go that way. He was originally meant as a humorous character, but soon enough he was a corner in several adventures, and is a good friend of the PCs to this day.
Still I think Burrito is a perfectly acceptable name in a non-spanish speaking world esp when it rolls off the tongue so well!!!!

Classic Burrito moments include fighting rapier wielding opponents with dish and silverwear, of course mocking them throughout the entire scenario.
Burrito ha sa sort of goot natured/back-handed wit about him. Go to Comment
