It's the classic berserking sword; a thumbs up for the back-story.



But really, the idea of a sword fuelling your wrath is so old. If it offered you the choice, again and again, and by making the wrong choice so many times, you'd succumb to wrath... that would be cool.

A weapon that loves to be used, the more so the better.

 As EM mentioned, the blade is a nice berserker blade with a backstory.  Now, if the sword really fed on rage, its best direction would be to 1. Get its bearer into power, or be acquired by one with power.  2. Induce its bearer to acts which enrage those about him.  So long as the bearer has sufficent power, those about him who are enraged may be kept in check, feeding the blade.  However, eventually something snaps, the current bearer is overthrown and the blade passes on to a new bearer.

Nice to see one of the sinblades come up! I wonder how someone with an iron discipline would react with this blade. It seems that the wielder would always be walking the line between self-control and all-consuming rage.



I like that you've included a section on the relationship between blades, and look forward to seeing how the oother blades interact with one-another.

Considering I promised a sub to Ancient Gamer over four years ago and haven't started it yet, I won't hold it against you! Go to Comment

I intend to eventually do a sub on each sword, as well as a final one detailing more specifically a plot for their final destruction.

Don't hold your breath. Might be a year before it's done, or longer. ;) Go to Comment

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.
