I like it, It's a queer little town that I wouldn't mind using. It only has two flaws that I can see, the lack of description on the religion (which can be remedied by another article if you want to type it up) and the sheer size of the thing, otherwise I'm glad such a great poster has joind us.

This pushes a lot of really good buttons for me. Other than a few grammatical errors which don't seriously effect readability, it's all around solid. I would love to see more weapons, personally, but these two and their uses are quite detailed. Go to Comment
"definitely not a candidate." Well I wish I'd thought of it. The one problem I have is with the burning system, though thats because it ever so slightly reminds me of stats. It is of course, easily adjusted, removed, or interpreted differently, so it's not a real problem. 5/5! Go to Comment
When seperated from the flock and certain nerves are pinched a Bahara'hara'raha will become nearly comatose. Also, as mentioned, they don't think to look up, and considering Ylfharn hunters attack from above.... Go to Comment
sparK!, I have not seen you around the citadel before, but if you keep turning up such rich, high-quality posts as this, I have no doubt you will be welcomed with open arms. This is a perfect background and campaign defining article. You may want to convert it to a scroll, I had trouble with that my self at first. Go to Comment
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.
