Weapons…weapons…February 28th, 2012 |
Though I don’t really think it’s all too much of a spoiler, I would like to talk about some weapons. Aza, Xandie and Sols have weapons that they will receive. Epic weapons. They aren’t in the game or anything, I take pleasure in making stories for the weapons, though I’m only finished with the design for two of them (there are actually four…I’m excluding Solstia’s shield because it’s not really a weapon, and yes I know you can hit people with it, but you can hit anybody with practically anything).
The Alignment of Causality – Azarizotza will receive a staff named The Alignment of Causality. The pocket watch that Aza’s father gave her is just a “magically folded” form of the staff. The Alignment of Causality consists of 13 hourglasses (6 convex and 7 concave) stacked on top of one another. In the center of the staff is the pocket watch, open-faced. The cool thing about this staff is that the sands flow at different rates between the hourglasses, so they are almost never in sync. However, every so often, if you balance it right, you’ll have the same exact amount of sand in each glass. This causes time to warp and slow down around her.
The Tail of the Phoenix and The Mind of the Phoenix – Solstia was given a sword and shield by General Gushma, she just hasn’t realized it yet. What she doesn’t know was that her father was a great engineer among the High Elves and was a Paladin (quite rare actually). Quelystra has had the mace as long as she could remember, but frequently uses it as an engineering tool. Constantly looking for ways to “engineer” the powers of The Light, he eventually crafted a sword and mace efficiently engineered from the powers of The Light. He was swept away in a vision and was told his two daughters would be the ones to wield the creations. The one who would hold The Mind of the Phoenix would serve as the Judgement of the Light, the one who would hold The Tail of the Phoenix would serve as the Wrath of the Light. The rest is history…or untold story…
The Guiding Reflex – As a note here, it’s near impossible to come up with stuff involving Xandaria, mostly because the player of her character is my wife. I design her sexy, she insists she doesn’t want to look like a piece of meat, I design her conservatively and she’s like “It wouldn’t hurt to show some midriff! Do you even find me sexy anymore?” Now, she demanded that her weapon looked like a Reflex Hammer because that’s what doctors use… I seriously could not find a way to make this work, except if it was a Giant Kodo Tooth strapped to one of its bones. That’s exactly what it is. Yup…
