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

You could put in a link to the character of Kagmond from this page by writing npc=87Kagmond/npc.

I think the item's great! Its powers of speed and ease of wielding are countered beautifully by its inability to be sheathed. A nice balance of advantages and disadvantages... Go to Comment

Interesting...

When I read Kagmond, I had wondered how and why someone would make a sword that one could not sheath... 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

Not a good blade to carry in a town.

A burning blade. Useful to warm oneself with in polar climates. Go to Comment

I like the idea of the coating, though the burst into flames when covered seems a bit tacked on. I suppose alchemy can be weird.

Probably because he used to beg on the streets.

I don't really understand your description of the Hummingbird. Does it mean if 66% of the sword is covered in cloth, it will burst into flames? 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.

Please mum, may I have some more? Go to Comment

Never. You can put it on a sword belt, but you cannot have a sheath covering it. Go to Comment

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

Hu's Iron Ball

       By: Murometz

Hu was an ambassador of the Seventh Emperor of the Reng Dynasty. Throughout his life he traveled across many miles and lands to entreaty with neighboring kingdoms and the semi-savages who dwelled amidst the Metal Mountains.

During one such diplomatic mission, Hu was gifted a small iron marble as a gesture, by a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe. Little else is known of Hu, but that marble was lost and is now somewhere out there for someone to find.

A tiny, shiny sphere, the marble has several properties. First and foremost it is a strong magnet, considerably stronger than its size and density would indicate.

Secondly, if thrown or rolled upon the ground and the command word is spoken, the iron ball will magically enlarge to either the size of an ogres's head or to that of a great globe, twelve feet in diameter. The rolling ball of either size will continue to roll or fly at the same relative speed it was when launched as a marble, and can thus cause great damage to anything in its path. The magnetic power of the ball will also magnify when enlarged.

Legends claim that the ball has been tossed from besieged castles upon attacking foes and rolled at marching armies in ages past. At the end of such rolls, the larger size globe has been known to not only crush soldiers underfoot, but to also "collect" many dozens of metallic weapons and bits of armor unto itself, appearing as an armored sphere, with swords and spears sticking out from it in all directions.

Owning this powerful marble has its drawbacks. Anyone carrying it on their person, will experience the iron ball's insidious effects after some time. The owner feels no worse for wear, but after two month's time they will suddenly awaken one morning to find that their hair has fallen out completely, their teeth loosened like baby's teeth ready to drop, and their fingernails simply shriveled and sliding off the fingers and toes. Perhaps unbeknownst to the owner at first, the iron ball also renders an owner sterile or barren by this time.

Regular clerical healing will not reverse this horrible malady. Only finding and beseeching a shaman of the Kiy-Kiy tribe to heal the iron ball's effects with their particular brand of magic, will work.

Hu's Iron Ball should be handled carefully by players and gms.
