Originally, Wrathbringer was going to be benevolent in nature, before the Sinblades came to being. The others are much less straightforward (thinking on Kingmaker now). Go to Comment

KIngmaker is concerned with gathering power. Wrathbringer cares only about exercising it through violence- to the exception of almost all else.

That's not to say that someone in possession of two Sinblades might create such a scenario, and Kingmaker + WrathBringer would very likely lead to the one you mentioned above. Go to Comment

4.0/5

I also quite like the idea of the seven deadly sins turned into weapons. A good start with this one. Onwards! Go to Comment

What I really like about this particular sword is that the sword itself is going insane which makes me wonder what will happen if it goes mad. Go to Comment

How about the blades...what do they look like?

The backstory is excellent, and really ties the swords into the setting. However, I'd like to see a bit more about the blades themselves. Some ambiguity is nice for letting a GM weave it into the world, but too much ambiguity makes it harder to integrate them in, because more work has to be done to flesh them out. Also, considering this is a plot, some hooks would also be nice.



This definitely has potential, and I'd like to see it rise to that potential.

Avarice, Flamebearer and Ennui all seem perfectly fitting, so really that leaves Gluttony and Envy.

For Gluttony, perhaps one of the following (depending on which aspect of Gluttony you're focusing on): Voracity, Rapacious, Esurience

For Envy (this one is much harder to find names for, I must admit): Malice, Resentment, Covetous Go to Comment

Cool. Might have to think about the incomplete blades...

I really like the back story, the legend of the blades, however, I agree with Chaosmark, knowing more about the blades, their power, appearance and their temptations would be really interesting, and if the quality of the writeup on the blades is the same as the backstory, you'll be in HoH territory.



Consider approaching a Strolenite whose work you like and propose a collaboration, if you're drying up on ideas/motivation for the blades.



Great potential.

Anyone have any suggestions for better sword names? That was the biggest stumbling block I had. (Wrathbringer and Kingmaker are finalized; however.)

Wrathbringer, the one that inspired the idea for this sub has been submitted.

Kingmaker has been submitted. I know the first two have seemed fairly stereotypical, but some fun surprises await. Trust me.

Agree with Scarab. You could form a neat campaign around these swords.

An idea for a plot or subplot is to have a religious order train or seek people that have the qualities of the 7 virtues to be the bearers of these blades.  Such as a person with extreme amounts of personal temperance wields the gluttony blade... or someone that has practiced chastity for decades is given the lust blade.



The character conflict could be amazing

Scrasamax's comment on 2011-08-29 08:59 AM
What about a cursed villainous falcon coin where the enchantment has been twisted. Rather than hover in front of the recipient, the coin dashes into them, preferably their face, at high velocity. While it is going to be very rare for this sort of thing to be lethal and maybe a bit more of a prank, it could still be fun.

PC gets paid with a twisted coin, which hits them while they are in the middle of a contested melee, or are doing some sort of horseback skill check.

Without modification, the coins could be a serious problem for people who want to be discrete, such as thieves and assassins, a canny and fleet footed, or flight capable person could follow a coin to its recipient to discover who the real assassin is, or that sort of thing. Go to Comment

Well, the author states they're mostly large denominations, and I think it's good as it is. Sending 20 000 gp would be as tedious as it sounds, prompting the payer to make a personal delivery. You'd have a large stash of unenchanted currency, and a smaller for distance payments. Go to Comment

This is so unique and hillarious that the short description provided is truly sufficient.



I'd add but two things:



*Traceability of the coin: can mediums or the like trace where a coin has been?



*Interception of the coin: I echo a previous comment: could a thieving Potter clone snatch them from mid-air to enrich himself? Sure, their enchantment needs to be temporarily suppressed, but perhaps... perhaps catching them is something only a few extremely dextrous individuals could do, making Falcon Coin theft a way of living for a few, while ensuing most transfers are safe.

5/5. Hilarious. The sky might be full of large numbers of coins all making their way to their destinations.
