Quest - What Makes a Weapon Magic



Original Quest from November 29, 2007 to December 30, 2007

What Makes a Weapon magic?

And for that matter, what makes any item magic? What imbues our swords with supernatural cleaving abilities? Who allows our maces to smash through stone? Why do our spears hum with bloodlust? Where does one find this wondrous font of MAGIC? How exactly are these weapons created?

Well?

Now we will find out! We invite you to join Strolen's Winter Quest! Each entry will be awarded an additional 10XP! The winners will be chosen in the first weeks of the coming New Year. Be the first 'winner' of 2008!

For easy reference and further detail see the What Makes a Weapon Magic submission by one of our esteemed authors, MichaelJotneSlayer.

Good Luck to All!

Serivemn    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)

Like magic Methnik’s sword passed through that of his foes….All too late, the blade was at his neck, it burnt, stinging like acid, it slivered through skin and muscle. Methnik crumpled to his knees, then to the floor, his eyes greyed over and he heard faint words, maybe those of his foe? "Your last lesson in this life. Your teacher? A Serivemn"
