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!

It does not really stand on its own, but I like the content. The information presented is straight forward and lays out seeds for other story's or situations. It would not make much, a few headers and an summary or intro paragraph to make this into some thing that works on its own and has a clear voice and sense of perspective. Go to Comment

I like this. It provides a nice rooster to the setting that gives it character and depth. Will make it easier for the setting to come alive in the hands of the GM. Go to Comment

Kassy: this sub is WORK IN PROGRESS. I was just jotting down ideas rather than writing a sub. I'd like to find someone to collaborate with to flesh out the relationship between the 30 members of the reigning house of Selador. It also needs reformatting for the new site. Would you care to help?

Punctuation!



Less run on sentances and no walls of text please.



Other than that, you have some good ideas.

Man, that is one BIG gun. Solid scifish work for the far future.

And to add at least something, don't forget the other limiting factor of the weapon: it's gonna be expensive. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2007-09-26 12:08 PM
Very detailed and specific, something I am sure that some members here will appreciate. The idea seems interesting and viable, is there anything that offers protection from this weapon? Reading through this sub it seems like it cuts through everything with ease, and i would think it would be monsterously heavy if only for the weight of the ammunition.

40 rounds of 25mm/75mmL ammunition comes out to weigh something in the area of 100 pounds.

(557.5 lb/cubic foot for copper, 94.30 cubic inches for the volumne of the ammunition or .18 cubic feet, resulting in a mass of 100.35 pounds or roughly 45 kilos. That's alot of weight to tote around.) Go to Comment

Nicely done -I appreciate the detail as well.

Though what type of powersource is it? 4200 discharges with the described effect sounds like you would need fusion or even more exotic... Go to Comment

Updated: Updated for the weight problem. Should have worked it out.... it now comes to 6.35KG per magazine. (the weight of the weapon was revised too) as for portability, don't forget that the people who use these are about seven and a half feet tall and have been genetically modified for increased muscle bulk. Thanks a lot, though! Their weight was far too much before Go to Comment

Thanks a lot scras! That was a serious problem with the weight.

In term of protection, ceramics will do the trick. If they are strong enough to resist the kinetic impact, they can stand the heat pretty well (think space shuttle). But, you can't have a metal or fabric coating, otherwise the plasma splash will set it alight. This pretty much rules out personal protection, since you'd have to have top to toe ceramic armour. If you can afford it, though, vehicles can be pretty effectively protected with ceramic tiles. (reactive armour is pretty useless though)

Regarding the portability, most of the people who use these have an exosuite anyway, so it doesn't pose many problems. Go to Comment
