Guild of the unblinking eye

By:

An Order created in ancient times built upon the concept of “Knowledge is Power”. They are the ultimate power.

An order created from ancient times, known by few, but for the few who know of it, it is a valuable resource. The guild consist of two main sections, the unblinking eye, and the unforgetting mind.

The unblinking eye consists of rogues, assassins and the like, from all over the world. Their objective is to spy on every major happening and most minor happenings, and gather information, sending it to the nexus of the guild.

The unforgetting mind sect of this guild, consists of scholars, scribes, librarians and magicians, who categorise and store this information in a vast library.

This order has been going from basically the beginning of written history, and they pride themselves on having the most knowledge of any place in the world.

The few lucky people who know of this guild can enter the halls and study information… for a price. People are not allowed to remove a chronical from the library, and the books are magically altered to not be able to pass outside the doors. Those who study within the halls are watched by two guards at all times.

This guild contains many pieces of information an adventurer may want to know - the weakness of a forgotten evil which has re-arisen. Spells and alchemist mixes unknown to the new world, the art of forging metals into new, stronger alloys with innate magical properties, and many more.

Cost for entering the stores alter from person to person, to situation, to purpose to need. It can range from monetary compensation, to quests performed, to limbs removed Anything is possible.

Too Uber of a historical illuminati even for me. They know all the true knowledge. No sense of origin or purpose. They support themselves by extorting others into doing their bidding if they have the knowledge.

I need more.

Yes, it's a little uber, and a little short, but it's a good solid start, and I love the name. While it might be too powerful and all-knowing for some, for others, it might be good to have an organization like this that they can turn to for their needs. It's a little unrealistic, but many times less complexity equals more fun. That being said, it is short for a submission, and more detail WOULD be nice.

What a score of 3 says. Written well but probably leaning a bit towards the mundane in terms of content.

This is start of something, I would make them a bit less reliable - more real. Perhaps they started as the secret police of some great empire, and outlived that empire.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
