Not really unstoppable - it can be parried if someone knows it is coming. In truth it is not much more powerful then a shortbow. It's chief advantage is suprise, as well as the more precise control of a melee weapon. Go to Comment
If I got it right, nobody is crushed - they just have to keep walking, or they will be rolled around, recieve scratches and be hit, over and over, the rough floor slowly killing them.
I could imagine a healthy person could walk it for a few days (likely getting drowsy a few times, falling, and waking up again), until being too weak to continue... then dieing a very messy, prolonged death.
Simple and cruel. Good work. For a torture instrument of course. :) Go to Comment
My question is - how fast does the floor move? I could see one where, in a ten-foot-cell, it only move about 5 or 6 feet per hour, which would make for an extremely drawn-out and painful death. Is the stone still damp from the river as it comes up? If so, a particularly determined victim might end up scraping his tongue raw licking moisture from the stone, if they just throw them in and ignore them for a month. Go to Comment
