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.

3.5/5

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

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.

Since the act of sending the Coin involves holding it, applying a contact poison would risk poisoning one's self, but I wouldn't say it was impossible to do.

Interception of a Coin would make for a great adventure, I'm sure. Go to Comment

I've updated the submission to better demonstrate what I intended by "Avoids obstacles". The Coins generally avoid buildings, trees, mountains and the like. Birds, people, windows, other things that can break- not so much.

When I was typing this up, I had a short Corran-involved story for the creation process. I decided trying to kludge through it would prevent me from putting the sub up, so I skipped it.

Anyways, Corran created a set of molds (About fifty of them) that are enchanted to make a Falcon Coin. The molds themselves are strongly magical, and any coin poured into them receives the ability to be sent.

I want Falcon Coins to be a bit silly. For very large transactions, the idea of a swarming cloud or line of coins leaving 'contrails' across the skies amuses me. Go to Comment

Bloody brilliant.  I have to wonder though at the culture that routinely enchants common currency.  The image of vast clouds of glittering coins zooming from one end of the kingdom to another is mind-bendingly cool, but that is a LOT of wizards to employ at the royal mint.  Still, what better way to emphasize the wealth and grandeur of a city than to show it all, swirling just out of reach?



But here's a puzzler: if the coins avoid obstacles, why would flying be dangerous?  Shouldn't they just part around the flying object and go on their merry way?

Exactly! Which is why I'm interested in hearing more about the minting & distribution process. It doesn't sound like these coins are as rare a sight as I would assume any enchanted currency to be. If I were going to include this in my world (and I'm sorely tempted to), I'd want to iron out some of those issues ahead of time. Go to Comment
