Dragon's Blade


This weapon was given to WindSong by a Draconian prince as a gift for her loyalty to him and his children and her bravery in battle. The prince called it the Dragon’s Blade, hoping WindSong would be the blade for his people.

The blade itself is about 34” long. It’s made from living stone.  A heavy stone, white as snow,which comes straight from the heart of the earth.  To form the stone into a blade takes enormous amounts of elemental magic which few posses.
     WindSong has had to train hard to be strong enough to lift it in her human like form, but in her Were form, (8’ tall and heavily musceled)she can lift it easily. The hilt is carved from dragon bone and on the blade, near the base of the hilt, is the black figure of a dragon about to take flight, a symble of the royal family from which it was given.

Magical Properties:

     It is magical because it’s made from living stone.  Living stone is from the heart of the earth.  It is “pure” earth untainted by anything of a dark nature, so it holds the elemental power of pure earth, because that’s what it is. The living stone has a spirit of it’s own, which gives it a power all its own.
     It is a blooding blade.  Soon after its creation it is bathed in the blood of the one to be its owner.  This bonds owner to sword.  The blood is what unleashes the blades power.  The sword’s spirit reads the wielder’s heart and what thier will for the use of the blade is.  The blade’s spirit will bring out hidden strengths and abilities of the wielder and enhance them with its own power.
     The use of the blade can be used for good or evil.  Depending on if the wielders heart is pure or dark will decide if the blade’s power to be good or evil as it helps to do the wielder’s will.  Living stone is pure, but a dark heart will taint it, warping the blade’s original elemental power.

You've been too vague about the sword's abilities. How does it draw on the user's hidden strengths or abilities? I also don't understand the whole "heart-reading" thing. A sword is a sword. You use it for good, or you use it for evil, and neither requires a reading of the heart. Or have I missed something?

This item lifts above the most basic of things I have seen in here, but just barely. Perhaps giving a little more in-depth information on the swords magical properties would help. Also, perhaps a little bit of the background of the sword, too. How it was crafted, how it fell into Windsongs hands etc...

Good luck for future posts, however, by looks of this item, you have the ability to create some interesting posts, you just need to think over them a bit. {Something which I rarely do :-( }

Here I hope this improved the description, and I hope you now have a better picture of how the blade's power works.

I still don't understand. You didn't explain the power, you just explained why it has the power.
April 3, 2004, 17:18
I don't know how else to explain it! It's elemental power. It comes from the pure elements of the world she exists in. Since it's part of a pure element it holds the elements power. Like I said it holds the elemental power of pure earth because it is pure earth! It's in the third sentence under magical properties.*takes a deep breath* *more calmly* That's what I was trying to get across during the whole thing. I'll fix it again. *sigh* I thought I explained it more clearly that time, but oh well. Sorry that I suck so copletely at writing.
April 3, 2004, 17:23
There I fixed it once more. I'm not sure if it has helped though because I wasn't sure what to do with it. If you still don't understand please tell me "exactly" why you don't understand where it gets its power from and where I lose you and I will try to fix it again.

So...What I'm getting here is that it doesn't have any magical "effects", per se, but it is made from elemental earth, so it is magical?
April 3, 2004, 20:47
I do like the improvments to the clarity, but like Capt said, what does it do? How does the elemental earth, pure or tainted, affect the creatures it is used against, or the wielder?

You don't "so completely suck" at writing. We just need a little more to understand what you're trying to get across.

Although breaking your post into a couple of paragraphs would help.

Sorry. I had explained how it effected the wielder's abilities, but somehow I deleted it one of the times I edited. It doesn't have any speciel effect of the attacked. It has the same effect that a normal sword should. It kills or wounds them.

I like how it is made from some magic elemental stone, but as mentioned, some real details on how it benefits the wielder would be go. It has great presentation value, but what justifies the effort in creating it? Perhaps it works exceptionally well against earth-aspected opponents? As a focus for earth magic used by the wielder?

It is fine. I like the ideas behind the blade.
December 26, 2014, 23:10
Besides the fact that spelling is sloppy and content being quite sparse, the underlying idea does come through. This still needs one more edit (and a little expansion preferably on why it was created even if it was just a sentence to say that the blade was specifically forged specifically for Windsong's were-form which was how the Prince associated her battle prowess with or sth like that which the sub was currently sort of hinting at) before I would give it a 3.

Overall, I see no reason for this to stay challenged and remaining outside of scrutiny, esp. given that the author is no longer active.
