You know,this item is actually worthy of a full 5/5,but cruelty to animals has always been a big turn off for me,so I'm going to have to deduct one point for that. I apologize if you think that's an an insult,but my little biases rule me with a firm hand. Go to Comment
An awesomely well done post Wogden. It is entertaining and at the same time makes us question why we are entertained by screaming rodents bursting into flames. The backstory is well done, avoiding any one blame for the creation of the rodents.
Dude, this is GREAT stuff. I am envisioning a "Castle Argggggh" Scenario with a french taunter and everything. I'm SO using these things. I have an upcoming super-battle to wage, might be just the ticket.
On a side note, this got me so giddy, I turned into surfer dude for a brief moment.
The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.
