Messed up sword!!
« on: July 14, 2009, 10:37:35 pm »
Here's the deal, I did some energy work with a sword and it acquired qualties of me. Like for instance, my vampiric qualties and may be some senteince. Now the blasted thing is increasing it's range.  What do ya'll think?

I agree with Muerte. In all forms of media sentient swords are usually bad news. However if this is a new entity and not a demon of some sort that has bonded to your blade, i would suggest that you try to communicate with your blade. A connection would produce a resonating effect that would amplify your own power.
This is all conjecture however.

You know, of all the suggestions made, no one has asked a rather obvious question; a question which would determine exactly how you proceed from here, if you proceed at all.

What is your sword comprised of; what metals, what gems, what alloys, etc?

Crystal and metallurgical magics can be very complicated, and on top of these, you're working with energy magic. This could get ugly, or it could be a beautiful thing, but above all else, please provide as much information as possible.

Also, and this is for everyone, if you don't know exactly what you're talking about, if you haven't done the research to be certain of your response, then you shouldn't be responding. Telling someone an answer based off of something you saw in a manga cartoon, a movie, or heard in a song or read in a fantasy novel is not a great way to help them. If you can't help, at least do not hinder.

What kind of crystal? And yes, it could be important.

I've done some research, and basically, that form of steel is an alloy. As such, I need to know exactly what metals went into its formation as well.

Also, what was used to create the imitation ivory handle?

You know, I think it's glass or the whole handle might be plastic. The metals in the alloy, I'm going to have to look that up. Actually, I think the carbon is increased in the steel or something like that.

What's plastic, the crystal, the handle, or both?

Ok then, just need the list of metals used in the sword's construction.

Also, if it turns out that things other than metals, in this case most notably carbon, were used, then those need to be included to, and in what ratio.

It's made in China, no telling what extra stuff they threw in there. I'll find out the process though.
