Summer Word Aka Helioglyph

By:

Some time magic users are less magical than one expects.

Appearance
Human/ Male/ 40ish
Helioglyph is a man of moderate height and build. His eyes are an odd golden green color. His nose is quite large, hooked and hawk like. His hair is blond threaded with a great deal of white. His skin is soft and fair, showing he has not worked hard, except for his hands which are scarred and calloused.

History/Background
Summer Word was a simple young apprentice to a gold/ silver smith when he became interested in magic. It seemed the man next door was a wizard of some minor repute. Summer spent much of his free time with him. Though disappointed that he did not have “The Gift” to any real degree, he still studied the interesting symbols and patterns associated with magic. He incorperated patterns into his works when he became a journeyman. They were unique and well received. Since magic is such a touchy subject, most smiths avoid it. Since He made a wizard’s set as his master work, his identity as a magical jeweler was cemented.

He eventually moved into the magic quarter because his clients were either there or expected him to be. Like all “workers of magic” he took on a magename, Helioglyph. Being a non-magical worker of magic, he was able to go places and do things that most magical workers were unable to do.  Thus he has become a “community leader” in the magic quarter.

Special Equipment
Dozens of charms… and many of his work.

Roleplaying Notes
Think: Nice Guy who is too responsible for his own good. He takes on his own problems and the problems of others.

It is an okay post by its self. I was going okay, it is a Shadowrun Talismonger in a non punkish environment. But it is the line at the end that caught my attention.
"Think: Nice Guy who is too responsible for his own good. He takes on his own problems and the problems of others. "

That makes him so much more. He is a nice guy. He is not a flake, like most magic people. He gets things done and stresses out over the details because nobody else is.

That made him real for me.

Tambourine

       By: Yokima.van.zephrill

Tämbourine is firmly placed on my back ,to unsheathe this sword I simply have to say "re clouse" meaning come to me or i can just reach over and unsheathe it the old fashioned way. This sword was created to my liking tambourine is made of raw-like metals I found in different regions as I begun to forge the metals together, I’ve noticed that the raw metal materials were different pieces to a wide variety of swords that were used the past and present, being so most blades have a sheer grey texture Tambourine’s blade became black as the depths of the oceans. The blade expands to 6” which weighs 426lbs the sapphire jewel placed on the tip of hilt (upper middle center of the base) it emits a aura texture of purple which weighs 24lbs the jewel is un-breakable it negates magic for tambourine has a mind of its own only belonging to me it finds a worthy opponents who doesn’t use magic or any type of power to their liking which I can agree with(who would want an opponent that abuses their powers to kill for no reason or to avoid dying by honor tambourine fights with honor and accepts its glory or defeat) I’ve named the sapphire Sophia because not only that its rare and radiant it resembles my burning passion for my love Sophia. I made the hilt to be a length of 15 inches its frame is created with fine katchin (very thick and heavy metal) it alone weighs 50 pounds its texture is black like mixture of, I made it to be a cruciform hilt so it has room for two hands. I I made the blades hilt aprox. 2”, the blade is double-edged but the left side of the swords frame can block and or negate ones attack if needed, it weights 500lbs making it nearly unmovable. To go up against this sword is to quickly find your own death. Tambourine is a twin sword to Terra.
