One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).

Hummingbird By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 2 Days, 13 Hours, 35 Minutes ago

This blade is not old, nor is it renowned. It means alot to the one that bears it, however, and can be very deadly if used properly.

Kagmond By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 1 Week, 4 Days, 23 Hours, 35 Minutes ago

You might think this is just crippled man living in the woods, but he has been through alot more than you would think.

Chosooth By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 1 Week, 6 Days, 13 Hours, 16 Minutes ago

A soft smile and good nature hides this mans true intentions.

Brumbeldor By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 2 Weeks, 6 Days, 18 Hours, 8 Minutes ago

Resting in tree branches and picking his teeth, this creature wastes the day sleeping or walking across the country side.

VonHorst's Harness By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 12 Hours, 38 Minutes ago

A simple leather harness covered with an odd assortment of axes.

Tarsir Celebalda By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 4 Weeks, 11 Hours, 14 Minutes ago

Not everything apears to be what it is. Orcs were once elves at one time…

Ansgar Haakon By: hopfrog16
   11 Years, 5 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 20 Minutes ago

Ansgar is a Rohirrim (Same race as the Riders of Rohan)that wanders aimlessly along roads and paths mearly to see the world or to patroll… depending if he is employed or not. He usually sings or whistles while traveling and is quite formidable looking while riding his meara.

The Candle-Eyed Man

       By: Murometz

The third son of a candle-maker, and secretly a spy, Tsiao Fong Wei betrayed his family, clan, and town to the merciless Qongg Dynasty, causing the deaths of his own family members. He survived to an old age hiding out in the country side and keeping a low profile. One day however, the “Paper Knife” finally found Tsiao Fong Wei , and exacted his revenge on behalf of the folk, dead and tortured.

After a furious struggle, the “Paper Knife” plunged twin burning candles into the eyes of the traitorous old man and laughed, as Tsiao Fong Wei howled in dismay and pain. Some say Tsiao Fong Wei died that day. Others say that the old man somehow escaped despite his sudden anguish and utter blindness.

The truth is lost to time.

But to this day the children of the Red-Ridge County towns and villages are told by their parents to always beware twin lights in the darkness and to never venture into the woods at night, and to keep an ear open for the Groaning Ghost, for somewhere out there Tsiao Fong Wei the Traitor, now a vengeful spirit, stumbles about the darkness moaning and wailing, candles still sticking forth from out of his otherwise empty eye sockets. And though the candles plunged into his eyes all those years ago were a’flame going in, now the wax protuberances are somehow lit from within and burn without, and two flickering lights in the darkness, always portend his coming.
