Wonder if a somewhat fire resistant partial sheathe could be purposely made in order to cause it to enflame for use. Also could do it to start fires, put on a show to strike fear into others and other such flaming ideas. Go to Comment
Yup. This was not a sword designed for adventuring and slinking about, this sword was designed for frontal assault by troops. Being seen by enemy troops (Due to the very noticable blade) isn't really a worry when it comes to combat of the sort. Go to Comment
I like this character better than my last one. =) Although I must say this one reminds me of Oliver Twist for some reason ::rubs my chin::. If you see something wrong or have suggestions, let me know! Go to Comment
Hahaha, or the child labor thing. As for the Himmingbird, no. It means if more then 66% of the blade is covered in ANYTHING, it bursts into flames. This means anything from a sheath to the flesh of an orc. It's both a good and bad thing. The metal on the blade is very shiney, so it is very easily seen. The only way you can hide it is to put behind your back.
Pretty much. Just like how "magic" is sometimes spelled "magick". =) Arkainists are just offensive mages that use mana in it's rawest form. This character isn't that great I don't think... I'm in a rut. =P Go to Comment
Surnames: The Chinese were among the very first cultures to adopt the use of hereditary surnames (around 2800 BC). But the custom didn't quite catch on in Europe - at least not until the Venetian aristocracy made it popular sometime between the 10th and 11th centuries AD. What culture made it popular in your setting and why?
