What they said. A very interesting effect that would really be useful for a surgeon - and many shadier characters, too. Go to Comment

I'd echo Scras' statements and add that the main difference between straight and curved swords is their provenance- straight swords were made mainly for stabbing and close-quarters fighting by footsoldiers (keep in mind the Roman footsoldier), while curved blades were meant for slashing attacks from horseback by riding warriors (for instance, mounted Arab warriors with scimitars, or the original samurai, who were riders, accounting for the curved shape of the katana).

Nicely done. Touch of back story. Interesting elements and power. I give it some paws up.

Should this not have a Falhath free text?

I also added it to the common magic codexes. Go to Comment

4/5

As Cheka noted: It is a pity these are large swords and not surgical scalpels, else medical procedures would be made a walk in the park. If the numbing quality is in the metal, perhaps it could be melted down to make a more wieldy surgery utensil? Still... I see amputation bieng a painless possibility.

On top of all that, I can see it bieng a more-than-adequate munchkin-slayer, too. Go to Comment

It can be whatever you heart desires Lith. If you want to deflect, it can be curved, and if you want to block it can be straight. However, I am not sure how watertight the straight/block:Curved/deflect method is. I did some training with swords, and didn't have problems deflecting with a straight sword or blocking with a curved one. Mind you, we were using wooden swords. Go to Comment

We need more swords. I have three swords in the back burner, though I must admit they are hard to make without delving into the cliches. You managed it though. Go to Comment

I really like this sword's power. Very original man!

Like others mentioned, the visual of someone getting cut up and then wandering off, bleeding to death but painfree, is priceless! Go to Comment

This is a lot like Gideon's Mercy, with the snake on the hilt and similar powers.  These swords could be fun items and you put some cultural weight behind them which is very nice. 



Some Edits



 



IN POST “the Duke though the man to have given him a playful jab to the midsection before he moved on the market.”



 



I think “though” should be “thought”



 



IN POST “Gnoccio was such a boisterous, and often touching of others type of person.”



Slightly awkward transition here, so we must assume that Duke had this opinion of the Gnoccio.  May I suggest moving the order of information around like this



"The Duke was acquainted with Gnoccio and knew him to be a boisterous person and gregarious person; often roughly touching or slapping others in fun.  As Gnoccio departed the Duke thought the man to have given him a playful jab to the midsection the man, until the Duke staggered and was shocked to find his silk doublet soaked with blood, and a 14-inch gash starting just above his groin and stopping just short of his ribs.



Or change it all together so that we are clearer about the nature of the Duke and Gnoccio’s exchange.



IN POST “so sure was he of his own style, he though his foe incompetent until he himself stumbled.”



I think so should be capitalized and though should be thought. Also I think it would be help to put some transition in here to note that you are no longer talking about Tekene in general, but are now discussing the specific duel in which he died.



 



iN POST “He would then dispatch those he had contract to kill with a quick thrust into the heart, leaving the to simply die whilst still dreaming”



I think there should be an a before contract or “those he had been contracted to kill”



 



But again, nice item, useful and fun, the cultural weight behind it (weapon lore) makes the post much more intereting than the item alone.
