Very well researched article. One can imagine such a thing might exist, terrifying though that fact may be.

Nah, popped in from time to time, but haven't really been around. Blame this post on a mix of Insomnia, procrastination and wiki walking. I'm subscribed to both the forum and site RSS feeds, so I tend to have a look from time to time.

The Tribulations of the land of Kremik

Dossta's comment on 2011-12-12 12:59 PM


The Charter: a contract that was signed by all of the original settlers to Kremik.  It formed the basis of Kremik's various legal systems and provided several important unifying ideals that withstood the upheavals.  However, it was also at the heart of the original dispute which caused the formation of the three original nations.  Each of the three factions interpreted various key sections of The Charter differently, and their inability to resolve those differences led to the ships parting ways.



Potentially divisive provisions (need more here):




  • The Charter binds not only the original settlers who signed it, but all of their future descendants as well


  • The Charter codifies sins and virtues



Attitudes towards and influence of The Charter:



First generation settlers had all signed it personally before being put into cryosleep for the long journey to Kremik, and were faily well-versed in it.  They would be the most ardent defenders of their faction's viewpoint.



Later Kremikian nations would either discard The Charter entirely, twist or pervert its intentions, or cleave to it in an attempt to claim the moral high ground.

Great description with an excellent background. I can see the Red Duke working his selfless act wishing to all that he could take the misery of all those upon himself. The knife, joining his mission and answering his call, slowly being inbued with the power. Its permanance then solidified in cloud of shadow wrapping the knife at the same time the Red Duke uttered a final agonized scream of triumph for the good he did.

The healing/merciful weapon has been done before, but this is a lovely twist on it that brings freshness to the idea.

I enjoyed reading this.  An interesting follow up story may be how this dagger behaves when used for killings justified by a slightly different moral code.  How would the dagger respond to honor killings and executions?

A misericord in the original sense of the term.  Well detailed!

In the interest of full disclosure, this took longer than 3 minutes to write. The complete ideas and backstory as well as most of the effect were thought up in less than 60 seconds though. It's Also my first post in over three years! Woot! Go me!

Well, it seems that those who cannot create are forced to re-create...



I just found the Anodyne sword while browsing the Citadel. I had completely forgotten about them. My subconscious, it seems, had not, even down to the snake motif. Or is it that perhaps the snake brings images of silent, painless death?



We'll never know...



Anodyne sword added as suggestion.

The original idea was to show how this was just some blade randomly lying on th ground, that the duke picked up, and enchanted through his actions, but the paragraph got cut, so to speak...

Interesting weapon... or should I say tool. It feels more like it belongs in the hands of a surgeon or a healer than a warrior.  I find it interesting you made the handle a snake where usually snakes are usually associated with treachery.

From the description of the blade, I was fully expecting this to be an evil thing.  Yet it is one of the noblest weapons I have ever read about.  I'm glad that you took the extra time to write this up, as the lore section was a very enjoyable read.  This item could also inspire the right player to do some great roleplaying, and that's always a plus.  4 for the original idea + 0.5 for the excellent lore.

A most excellent creation, with a nice backstory and interesting powers/drawbacks. Truly an item for only the bravest kind of hero!
