lol, very amusing, Silas. It was more inspired by some conversations I'd had about glass the last week or so :P

The See-through assassin has no blood, so I dont really know how you would get the Graf Malin to fight it, but if you could, I would say that it would win fairly easily. Once someone knows the golem is there, all it would take is one good mace-swing to shatter it, as compared to say, the thirty or more swings against a well-crafted stone golem. Its weak, but its weapons are sharp and it is extremely difficult to see, which are its high points. Thanks for the comment Go to Comment

I love it. Was this partly inspired by Graf Malin? I doesn't matter either way. Again I say, exquisite beyond all other Golems.

.:IDEA:. RPG Battle Bots. Graf Malin vs. The See-through Assassin. They will battle in a battle which will have no winner. Who will win. Questions will be asked, and destroyed... BY ANSWERS!!

5/5 btw Go to Comment

Very nice - no motivation for the murders, and the assassin does not have any quirks, behavior patterns etc. that could give him away - he does not steal, does not leave any scribbled notes/playing cards/stuffed animals behind. It has no fears, no body heat, no needs. It does not have a smell...

I guess the only weaknes is that glass is HEAVY ... almost like stone, remind you. But, in bright sunlight or particularly dusty areas (or if the ground is soft ... imagine a set of tracks appearing, progressing towards you!) the golem will be detected.

But: 5/5 Go to Comment

Wondered how you would justify a glass land. Very workable and very interesting. Slippery and if you fall into pretty much anything you could shatter the place and yourself in the process. I would imagine that the glass would 'heal' itself or something after being broken. I see maybe trying to camp in there and the break a tree or bush to get into a small glen to rest. When they wake in the morning they are again completely surrounded and perhaps the area is reshaped or something. Go to Comment

Ok, ever since reading the post about bows, with the glass bow-tips, plus brainstorming ideas with Moonhunter and Agar about the Kalazars Skiffs thread, I've been obsessed with glass, what it could do, and what properties it has.

This setting was my way of venting that :P hope you liked Go to Comment

Nice surreal location.

Maybe you should OD-ize the mirrored plains a bit. Just a thought. Go to Comment

Barbarian Horde's comment on 2004-05-04 09:25 AM
Strolen, I think you've rather missed the point:

"The last true diviner hated the king and all he stood for - vainness, arrogance and foolishness".

He therefore made a point of creating an item that complied with the LETTER but not the SPIRIT of King Waria Shorthold's requirements.

He did, in fact, rather hope that His Vainness would in some way come a cropper. As such the five minute limitation makes a lot of sense. Go to Comment

The 5 minute limitation. How useful would that have really been to the king. It seems that 5 minutes is pretty short of a time and not sure if that works. In 5 minutes there is very little foresite that can be gained realistically. For instance, if somebody were to try and slay a dragon, to see the future they would have to be right outside the 'cave' (assuming all dragons live in caves) and perhaps see what was going to happen, and then I think it would be very rare that a slaying could be accomplished in 5 minutes so what could they see. Himself walking in. Once there it would be foolish to watch what would happen in 5 minutes, too busy dealing with a dragon attacking you.

The limitations are immense. And to sit and stare in it for 20 minutes? It would sort of make you a fool, after all if you were going to sit and stare for that long, you would sort of know you were going to just sit there so watching yourself sit there isn't the most entertaining thing. Oh wait, going to the bathroom....oh yes, I am getting that feeling now.

Limited uses, perhaps audiences. You could see who you were going to meet. If there were sound or you got a lip reader, you could do some party tricks and tell them what they are going to ask. But I think the king would have taken this TRUE seer and made him make something a little more useful.

Maybe I am too harsh because it is an excellently detailed item....just not sure of the utility of it. I dwell on the 5 minutes, and that is trully the thing that I think needs to be changed somehow.... -witholding vote for now- Go to Comment
