Heaven and Earth Blade

By:

In most places, weapons are designed for ease of creation and practicality of use. In others, various weapon designs are developed to meet certain philosophical criteria. This staff was initially designed for philosophical reasons, but has become a very effective weapon in which several martial techniques have been built around.

Full Item Description
This metal staff styled weapon is a total of 54” long (120cms).

This weapon consists of a metal bar (which is a flat oviod, rather than a round pole), with two nine inch curved blades jutting from either end. Two crescent-moon blade hand guards are equidistant from the center. This is the best placement for hands on a staff weapon.

The weapon is used as a two handed quarterstaff, with hands held underguards. These guards are bladed with crescents. This combination allows for swivel swings, push attacks, hooking strikes, along with a full compliment of staff related attacks, parries, and feints. 

History
Developed by a number of kung fu stylists, it has been formalized to these dimensions and shape.

This is a distinctive weapon used by a number of weapons form practioners. While doing forms, ribbons are attached to the ends.

A nice, simple descriotion for an exotic weapon. Easy too expand upon if the GM which too insert it into his or her setting(Or any setting for that matter).

And 100% real. I like this item because it shows off what a touch of naming can do to add to a weapon, beyond the bladed staff they are generically called in some games.

Firstly, I have to report that the link is no longer working. To me, this sub does not lack for content really but neither does it have a detailed backstory to warrant it being a normal sub as opposed to scroll entry or stub. But I'm not really nitpicky on author choices that are different from mine.

I know, occasionally when I encountered one of these old subs, I felt a little awkward about what score to give.

While I don't really get the context of the latter two words in the chain as they seem to switch away from the topic of general feature change to making a sub/commenting and then to one element within a sub (or so it seems to me), this series certainly have a good rhyme.

Great Magic and Ruination

       By: rickster

With a huge number of sacrificial victims, another realm long ago secretly bound a Prince of the land spirits, Iorstonn by name, thus ensuring the fertility, and improving the magical defences, of their realm. But binding that Prince to one spot has disrupted the weather and magical patterns (ley lines?) over half the continent. Things have become bad enough that a coalition has been formed to rectify the situation, once divinations have established the cause.

Your party is one of the teams assembled to do the rectification: find the binding object and steal it ("so that we can destroy it here in our realm, of course"...*) or destroy it over there. Presumably the Prince will be grateful to his rescuers and angry at the binders, but with a greater spirit like Iorstonn one can never be sure: such beings are "tricksy".

* Of course, the rulers of our realm might want to control Iorstonn for their own ends...
