I don't recall the Shards quest specifically mentioning what the shards looked like. In this case the shard happens to look like a gem. You might feel thats a copout, but thats what I had intended to convey. Go to Comment

Indeed, I had visions of a dwarf arm upheld hurling through the storm. Its a cute trick.

Originally I had intended for it to be an Orcish item, since Orcs use dwarven runes for writing anyway, but I decided that an orc wouldn't have that kind of magic, and I would need to use shamanism rather than alchemy. It might have been made to work, but I think this is cooler still.

However, under the old shaman system I had imagined that not all bolts would hit the gem. Some would hit the ground below the shaman, which would be a devestating attack. Personally though, I wouldn't go this route, as it makes the item too powerful; instead the opposite is better, the rod attracts nearly all lightning, so the storm is harmless to those below the flyer.... those above the flyer are a different matter.

What a logical and useful application of a Shard.

Also an amusing effect of splashing the enemy with lots of water with each sword-hit (watch out, slippery ground...), but in an intensive fight both combatants will be soon completely soaked, making them tired and cold.

The historical bit is also fine (except for the drow, know there is little love for them in these parts), and it shows that a quirky item in one place is a blessing of the gods in another one. Anyone tried to bring it into a desert, btw?


All in all, I like it. Bonus for a solid first submission.

Well, it isn't allowed as a Quest submission, since it's a weapon, but it works. Not an incredibly original application of powers... Many swords in Ix. ;) Ooh, totally oblique reference, who can tell me where it's from?!
I like the power. The history is adequate, simplistic. I hate to beat a dead horse, but avoid the drow.

3/5. Go to Comment

Now this is a wonderful first submission-a sword that spurts water. Really useful in deserts-noone will die of thirst whilst they have this sword.Extra deadly (although to both sides in the fight) in artic regions and in confined spaces.I hope all your submissions turn out as good as this.You've earned an HOH point allready. By the way, most people here really HATE the drow. Go to Comment

A nice first set of submissions.

And yes the drow are a topic for difficult conversation here at best.

Once again this has a set of unique affects that you do not see everyday. However, I find it very difficult to see a delluge of water to erupt from a blade while in combat. It would, in effect, nearly finish the combat on the firest swing and it would be near impossible to continue. From the explanation of how it works. I may be reading far to much into it however.

It is still a good item none-the-less. Go to Comment

There is nothing wrong with it wildcorn... the most famous of all Strolen submissions is about a Drow Paladin names Drizzt. It's classic. Go to Comment

I think it is an interesting piece. The concept if good, the history seems a bit wonky... and yes, I hate drow. But still a very interesting piece. Go to Comment

'I will not beat a dead horse, I will not beat a dead horse'

Other than that good job, I've managed to set aside my annoyance with races that exist only to slaughter/be slaughtered and given you what I would've given you anyway. Good Job. Go to Comment

I suppose I've learned my lesson:

If you want many many responses quickly, mention the drow. If you want a nemesis: glorify them.

Actually though, the only reason I took drow over duegar or dwarves is because in my last adventure the DM had us traverse a mountain range via a secret underdark tunnel. Drow were on my mind. Go to Comment

Hey manfred,

Were I running a campaign I would try to keep the sword away from the desert. Its too useful there. However it might make a good plot focus for a desert campaign. A tale of three cities fighting for control of the sword they just stole from your party. Go to Comment

With or without the silly demonizing of Drow, it is still good. It is not hard to remap the race since it plays little part in the nature of the item.
