The Sword Elanzer

By:

Created 10,000 years ago by the blood and sweat of every dying race that was raped and plundered by the dragons…

10,000 years ago, dragons ruled the world without any retaliations from any of the races. Within the tribes of many peoples there was a clan of fighters that had been filled with more hatred and rage than the others, these people had given themselves a duty far greater than that of any peasant or farmer of there times. The clan was named of that of the Draconis language, "Dragonas Slaval" or in common tongue Dragon Slayer. These barbaric hunters were that of human decent. Each warrior was more than more in some way of form from strength to speed to just down right courageous. The leader of the clans name was Sky de Mordecai, or Enlanzer. This warlord of warlords had the idea to use elvin magic with dwarven steel along with the small scent of human ambitions to create an equalizer between the races and the dragons.

Thus the races set forth to gather the required elements in the making of the sword. Enlanzer had asked for the materials of mythril, dragon bone and skin, and that of a great elvin sorcerer. Along with the great work of a dwarven master craftsman.

After many long months of hard determined work, the sword lay finished. The magis imbuned to the sword gave it a crystal like glow when in dark areas, and could cut into a dragons flesh as easy as a hot knife through warm butter. The sword however gave off a reddish tent when near dragons or draconis liege.

So forth the equalizer of the races had been completely formed and was given a name in which even the dragons came to fear…Enlanzer. The Death from Below for those whom bring death from above.

AAGH! Too strong! Weaken it by... a million and it would be a fairly decent device. Also, the story lacked... something. I really can't put my finger on it though.

I Can't weaken it is not to be held by any other type of men or dragons beside Lord ky and his kin.

Then why'd you post it?
The point of these items is to be used. So unless one of the players is a descendant of Lord Sky, it is useless to us.
And what if one of the players is a descendant of Lord Sky? That player will be able to hold this insanely powerful sword. WAY WAY WAY TOO POWERFUL.

2/5.

This is a good item in a story, where you the author can make sure it is used appropriately and controlling who and what can use it, but an awful item for a game.

The story does lack something. Maybe it's my ADHD, but I couldn't follow it. Too cluttered, or something.

Not a bad item really but would be pretty campaign specific. Also any game it was effectively used in would either revolve around one character... the descendant of Lord Sky... or involve the players getting messed up. Neither of which ruins the game but both require "understanding " players.

it is a good item for a gameone for the players to go after but not use, but other than that it is way to strong for ANY player to have

No Miso toto ti nevyslo. Je to nepouzitelne pre inych. Kebyze to najde dajaky iny charakter tak by s nim ani jablka nemohol krajat.

Inak povedz pls Petovi, nech sem odosle tu sekeru ktoru vytiahol Hlavyho nepriatel z toho undead dragona.

All I got out of that was "character" and "undead dragon". What language?

It is Slovak, correctly noting the item is unusable for most people, not even for cutting apples. Additionally, Krishna proposes some item he knows to be submitted, some axe pulled of some undead dragon... we shall see.


Dear Krishna,

this webpage is supposed to be readable for anyone knowing English. Using other languages does not help us to understand each other, especially the lesser known ones. Sadly, Slovak is such a language. If you wish to give someone a note in a way most members won't understand it, you may as well use a 'PM' (a Private Message) through the forums.

Sounds like a deal?


Drahy Krishna,

tato stranka ma byt citatelna pre ludi, co vedia po anglicky. Pouzivanie inych jazykov nam nepomoze vo vzajomnom pochopeni sa, obzvlast ak su to menej zname jazyky. Bohuzial, slovencina je taky jazyk. Ak chces niekomu povedat nieco tak, aby tomu vacsina clenov nerozumela, mozes rovnako dobre pouzit 'PM' (Private Message) prostrednictvom fora.

Moze byt?

Exuse me using Slovak. It is my mother language, you know.

About that axe, it is great item, used on one Bale-character (K.O.in first round).

Just a huge axe, the character was a wimp, + critical hit. Nothing to brag about. Huge guy with huge axe -> lots of damage -> character in a puddle of blood.

Updated: Currently the sword has been left in a land in which no dominant people rest in. The sword itself has thousands of deaths brought upon it from it. Basically the sword is meant for only the strong to wield and can kill dragons very quickly if in skilled hands.

Ah yes the fabled sword of dragon slaying.  It might be interesting to place in your game world a magic sword of absurd but finite power and then apply all the sword stories on strolen's citadel to it.  A sword that had some many different yet similar tales would indeed be ancient and enigmatic.

 The text was a little disjointed, and it brings nothing new to the magic sword genre, but I like that you came back four years later to update it.

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
