The Red Hand

By:

This is an unofficial order of the King’s Guard, those charged with protecting the castle, the king, and any holdings. The Red Hand are the elites of the prisioner guards.

This is an order of the King’s Guard, those charged with protecting the castle, the king, and any holdings. The King’s Guard also guards prisioners of the crown and dabbles in special missions. The Red Hand are the elites of the prisioner guards. While they are competent fighters, that is not their eliteness. They are masters of pain and inquisition. They are the torturers that other torturers speak about in hushed awed whispers. They are the boogieman that every possible rebel fears. They are the masters of the craft, applying careful skills and harsh training to achieve the ends desired.

The Order’s name is actually “unofficial”, as is the order itself. There is no order of the Red Hand on any of the rolls. The name came from the blood soaked handprints on their tunics (an occupational hazard). Those who were properly trained often marked themselves to show their status. Over the last century or two, it has become an official unofficial grouping.

A start, but I'd love to see more of it.

This is brief enough really to be an idea seed rather than a submission. Its a hint, but little more. Almost a generalization of the Spanish Inquisition.

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.
