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
Ok, so the floor is doing its slow turn/spin/roll, and the victim walks as long as he or she is able to. But...once they collapse, why are they dragged? Wouldn't they just lay in one place while spinning slowly? (Due to their weight and stuff). How do they actually get dragged? Go to Comment
