Dragon Crossbow
Items  (Ranged Weapons)   (Combat)
Mourngrymn's comment on 2006-06-28 11:57 AM
This idea has a solid ground and reasonable believability in its design. The fact that the difficulty in use and cost has made it more of a collectors item than a useable one.

I of course, would like to see a little more write up on it, the history behind it, why it was originally made to be so durable and strong. Since its name implies it was created for dragons (I realize the elephant portion of it though) yet it has never been tested against a dragon. So if it has never been used for its possible original purpose then why build it to the point where it is nearly infamous? Go to Comment

Well, I'm not much of an expert on crossbows, but here's my take.

A longbow can be between 60 and 160 pounds worth of draw- so you may want to change the stats of the draw, as each string could feasibly (if horrendously difficultly) be cocked manually. This would undoubtedy take a while, and be so cumbersome that dryfiring would be all but certain, but it probably would take less than 5 minutes. Go to Comment

Pretty detailed, for essentially being a really big crossbow. Now that you mention it, why aren't there more elephants in fantasy? Go to Comment

Sometimes you just need a really big crossbow or ax or sword. It is beautifully simple and well described. Go to Comment

Now, you just need to get one of these into something that *can* draw back at 640 lb bow.... Go to Comment

Assassins might like it, since it can be fired with relative accuracy at long range Go to Comment

Hmmm... If you had a line of ulnar ores human beings, how many of them would a bolt of one of these babies kill?

I'll get back to you after I have my Dragon Crossbow corps trained (one volley, then they draw swords). Go to Comment

Did you by any chance get the name Tekne from me? As in Tekneani Empire (Silver Mask of Ssungar and U'dem-land)? Go to Comment

Nicely done. It has history, explanation, and dramatic components. It has embedded several groups, a nice touch. Two paws up Go to Comment

something about nobles powdering their throats, some sort of poison powder I believe it was. Loved the name, but didnt really notice anything about it afterwards. If you dont like it I can change the name. Go to Comment

A solid take on an old idea. While nothing is particularily unique, it is well fleshed out and, perhaps more importantly, very versitile. Go to Comment

Very nice! The sordid history of a building. I liked the time-frame flow. Go to Comment

Nicely described, and not your average dungeon dive. I like the Guardians and the Psychopomp, and the idea of the Shade-touched and the Soul-taken, which fits in nicely with a concept I've been playing with for a bit. Go to Comment

Not your usual spelunking for treasure. It's rather more of a vision quest. Go to Comment

Nicely detailed and well presented. It smacks of the secret religious conspiracy idea that is so popular these days; though the building of the new religious site is nearly as old as religion itself. Good dramatic elements on this one too. Go to Comment

I guess my only responce would be in a region where barrows are just shy of being common this isn't A Barrow...it is The Barrow, the first that is listed, kind of Like Kufu's Pyramid, or Stone Henge (since there are many stone henges, but only one gets to use the name) Go to Comment

I really like this-barrows seem to be becoming common on Strolen. Go to Comment
