Normally I would launch into my "this should be two submissions NPC and item" rant. But, these two are practically one and the same. I am sure if you broke the staff, you would break the man... and if you kill the man, the staff will die too. It is a manifestaion of his hate and fear... without him it is nothing.
Nicely done all around though. I like all the various touches which explain this bastard and his item. Go to Comment
I like this one, the motivation is perfectly clear, and the staff of scorn is a great magic item, something that was created out of an emotional outburst rather than by a wizard in a tower. I do have to ask if it is Modest, or Goodman as the first name changes several times in the post. Finally, nice detail on the horse's decayed head. Go to Comment
This is an incredibly vivid piece for me. Quite powerful. Salem witchtrials meets Inquisition, meets Something Wicked This Way Comes, meets Judge Holden of Blood Meridien, meets Kane, meets Evil Reverend, meets sinister rural justice and superstition. Gorgeous. Go to Comment
Murometz is right, drums and orc go together like peanut butter and jelly. This is an nice interpretation and explanation of this aspect of Orc culture. Insert a little tribal politicing and it might explain why a tribe will do "unexplicable" things (as viewed by the humans) jsut before/ during/ after a battle. Go to Comment
What do I think? Whats not to like, really. Drums and Orcs go together like hotdogs and donuts. Loved the hurdy gurdy description. I had to stop reading and visualize said instrument and the orcs playing it!
the opening monologue is great. I see the punchline coming, but its still a pleasant jolt.
There is a manfred scroll out there somewhere on "spirits" and all that they entail. I believe this sub might be a welcome attachment. I shall seek it out. There is also a musical instrument scroll, where these will fit quite nicely.
I am happy to inspire you with my faulty Norwegian. Orken Drommer indeed!! Go to Comment
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.
