This sword is now held by Lakosha, the paladin.


[OOC DM's Note]
This blade is designed to attack only good things? If then, a Paladin cannot use it without ceasing to be a Paladin. He or She would be an anti-paladin, and considered to be KOS, just like every other necro in our continuity.

Another point, it's far too powerful for the continuity. No blade gives a +14 to hit/damage. That's a higher base stat than our 20th level blademasters. Shocked

Another, and much more important point, that blade was -my- quest item that had a specific purpose. I suppose I'll have to give out a far more quest-useful blade later.

And yet another point, to create a blade with this kind of bonus would require not only a few hundred preps, but a BCR of something fairly significant, like 80. I'm nerfing the blade to +2 vs. Good/-4 vs. Evil. Wisper enchantment intact.

Kitzi, on one note, there were no witnesses. As far as she knows, it's a normal blade. Phanth was the only one around when Micheru curse/enchanted it, but was unconscious. Guess why.

Anyway, I do agree with you that the blade seems a bit strong. But the real value is in the urges to kill. Not so much the blade's strength. The fact that it's a Paladin wielding it. And she wouldn't know where the urges come from, at that. Just a bit... interesting, and it'd be a shame to null such a fine idea into nothing. ::cough::Tornado Strike::cough::

I believe it shouldn't be that powerful (Narrator), but I also think it shouldn't be that weak either (Kitzibeth) I suggest maybe some midway point. Example: Healers: +4 Paladins +5, Angels +10, with the requirement that the user MUST attack and defeat at least one opponent every 2 days in a non-spar situation or suffer loss of blade or something like that. (Moves on to some new person that better suits it's purpose etc.)

Just a suggestion.

P.S Still mean to have -4 to evil creatures there.

Ali was a witness, as I was told.

The urges are still there. The rather extreme +'s have been nerfed down to reasonable levels.

And Tornado Strike? That was a mistake Razz

Mmmmm... Not loss of blade, perhaps... insanity. That's always much more fun, and it seems more the thing Mich would do.

Okay, maybe loss of blade and insanity then? =P Would be a shame to waste such an interesting item on a crazy person.

Temporary insanity. The blade sends her on a mindless journey to fulfill what it was made for until it becomes satisfied. Then she blacks out, and when she wakes, she doesn't remember any of it. Twisted Evil

Hikari... Micheru is a BAD person. Not GOOD. He likes manipulating people, and killing and all that stuff. He's with the Dark Alliance.

Obviously she becomes less than a being of light, besides it's not a class thing I'm trying to make extinct with Catherine, it's just you. =P My thoughts would be that Lakosha would either become an evil killing fanatic or an evil being herself, in which case Catherine might intervene... Assuming my computer gets fixed soon enough.

Ahh, facilitating roleplay Very Happy

Either way, in our continuity, +1 and +2 weapons are rare, as are +1 and +2 focus items. You can buy them, but if you're not a starting char, you have to pay an arm and a leg per plus.

+5 is pushing it, and usually found on NPCs or special quest items.

+14 is right out.

I'm sorry, but I've gotta stick to what will keep Ansteorra exciting and not let it degenerate to munchkinfest. Wink

Do I get a say in this? I know I am a nice person, but for anyone who has read anything on my chars past would realize that the current predicament fits in perfectly. I do not wish to go completely evil, but would like someone to save me from this impending insanity cycle.

Though I do like the idea of killing people passing out and having no memory of it. ^^

On another note i can still stay paladin. In D&D pen and paper game there is a class called Fallen Paladin. Completly evil, but that really doesn't describe me. since i am going temporarily evil, hopefully ;.;
