A good rationale for not using something beats simply adding another option. Yes, they could throw that axe if really necessary, but making them detest that option gives them even more color. My question is answered. Go to Comment
Copper is a rather soft metal and prone to corrosion, so copper weapons are inferior to brass, bronze, iron, and steel weapons. The copper axes used by the Ozians are ceremonial, and most do not even have a sharpened edge. Go to Comment
I agree that a throwing axe is a worthy weapon, but one that doesn't suit the Ozian style of fighting, they are a doughty and phlegmatic people who rather loathe the idea of throwing their weapons rather than wield them in their hands. They also have a long history of dealing with the undead, and often ogres, so throwing a weapon isn't the best way to deal with either larger foes, or slower ones. Go to Comment
A good solid post. It is well executed. It flows well. It gives us backstory, an OOP things (Fortean for Out of place) as a bionic sea craft on land, and a number of potential hooks. Really two paws up. Go to Comment
This can be tied into so many different submissions. Of course the Peace Pool but before i got to that comment I was thinking this could actually be worked into the Golem Wars idea that begun in the forums way back when. I wish that could be fleshed out. This is a nice little contraption.
I took .5 off because I felt it needs more backstory. I love the curses pearl idea, if that is in fact what transpired. It would be nice to know the tale of those who died, what they found, and what transpired for Kurye to leave his notes and hang himself. Kind of a Pirates of the Carribean type feel to the curses treasure. I like it. Muromax has done it again. I need to find someone I can co-write with, you guys are doing great things. Go to Comment
Next time you're contemplating a horse variation, but don't want to get too dramatic, how about a Zorse? An offspring of a zebra stallion and horse mare. In nature they are infertile, but in a fantasy world, not necessarily. They are also known to be extremely cantankerous.
