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
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
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
The names of the undescribed equipment, and her description are the best parts of this one. She has had her parents killed by orcs or equivalent, and she has been rescued by a prince/knight, so it treads some very well trodden ground here.
I have no idea how the summary relates to the main part of the submission.
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
Epic armor of fire resistance - great details. Its not too overpowered since it is not impenetrable, nor does it confer full immunity to its wearer. The Phoenix-like regeneration is a cool touch. Go to Comment
A group of individuals* gather up and search for, "The rod of Lordly Might." Here's the catch, no just any individual is welcomed. There will be a meeting on sundown* in an old bar. As it is, a war is going on between the Eastern Front, and the Western Front. The bar/tavern is in the middle of both lands.
On the same night of the meeting, there's another meeting with the Red Rose (Eastern) and the Black rose (Western).
Once on the mission, there will be other individuals met and given information... there will not be an easy destiny, but nonetheless and adventure to remember.
I used INDIVIDUALS for the fact that you can be any species (just keep away from the elemental and supernatural creatures.). Here are some suggestions: Vampire/ress, Adhiel (Elf), Half-Adhiel (Half-Elf), Orc, Human, Half-Human...
Please do not be: Orc, Troll, Frost/Forest/Urban/Dessert Monsters, Giants, and Titans. Note that you can still be one, just preferably not one.
I used SUNDOWN for a realistic reason (Vamps, Giants, and others meet at night). You don't meet someone who works for the Eastern/Western Kings during the day. I expect some drunks, bar fights, and bloodshed in the story. Mild or no Language is acceptable (unless unexceptable by the MODS).
