Titan Fighter by mindflenzing Titan Fighter by mindflenzing
This is the fighter from [link] . I decided to do a full image of this character. While doing the design I wanted to make his sword bigger. While doing it I thought it would be fun to make his weapon something like a giant's knife.

I think he'd make a good evil minion guard for a tyrant

I could make a pretty good mini boss out of him for a home game.

Its mostly a Romanesque blade with a Kuni ring at the end of it. I thought it would be cool if he used that ring to grip it for swinging attacks or to hurl it. I also liked the idea of a gigantic guy carrying a weapon from something that makes him look tiny.

I like him, he's big, huge, and monstrous.

There's nothing quite like the 8ft tall 500+ pound meat wall. I haven't quite figured out how he plays against type. The gentle giant is overdone but the stoic is also. Maybe he is more the calm exterior which houses great internal turmoil, making him potentially very dangerous but capable of deep (and possibly very flawed) emotional reactions when the story calls for it.

You should make him a genius who just happens to also see the value of working out.

Genius may overshadow the mage but he could be an excellent emissary to primitive cultures, i.e. he can be all like Josey Wales and get the Indian chief to agree to peace by riding in solo and playing up the right angle to get an accord rather than a bullet (of course, being a titan he would get respect from warrior peoples on sight anyhow).

Or Indiana Jones. Might seem like a knucklehead on the surface but then actually knows a lot about history, customs, and artifacts, and speaks lots of languages.

Yeah, he could be a well traveled sell-sword and adventurer who knows his way around the known world.

Neat idea, using the giant knife as a human weapon.

Thanks. I think the ring at the bottom makes it especially interesting because of the way you can swing/hurl it (and as a magic weapon it returns to the thrower, mwa ha ha ha ha!).

Thanks. There's nothing quite like when the adventurers have members as scary as they monsters they fight.

Great picture. Does the map refer to any specific fantasty locations?

Actually yes. Anduris is the fantasy world I created for my D&D campaign. It is like Darkcity meets Warhammer 40k. The world is a construct which requires machines called divine engines in order to maintain life. These machines are tended by tech priests based on an ancient holy book given to the sentient beings of Anduris by the servitors or the machine god. The machines spread a radius of of vitality to the world and allow large populations to live in cities with limited arable land where the world outside of the cities cannot fully support life.

My last campaign took place in the Empire on the western shore of the main continent where the largest and most powerful of the ancient cities still stand. The new campaign will be in the Kingdom of Flame in the east where the land is filled with the offspring of Firespine, the dragon queen whose semi-human descendants are chosen as monarchs by a powerful aristocracy.

If I ever saw somebody like that, I think I'd either faint or run away screaming.

The humongous "knife" is cool though. Really wouldn't want to see a real one, but still cool.

He's what we'd call an advanced case of adventurers. You don't want his kind in your fortress of doom.

Nice. Gives the appearance of stone. Like the Giant Knife element, as that is a weapon you don't see in battle often.

Thanks. Just to be a little different I like the idea that as a greatsword he's carrying what would be a small knife for a creature several size categories larger.

Its just interesting, a knife handles so much differently then a sword. It must take an enomrous amount of skill to use it properly. Knifes are usually used for throwing, stabbing, and hand to hand combat, so using it as a grand weapon is interesting.

It ends up requiring a lot of strength but does not have the range that a comparable greatsword does. This means that it inflicts more damage but is less effective for defense. The ring on the end, however, allows the dagger to be swung by the end which increases the force with which it is swung.

Not on this pic in particular, medieval weaponry and tactics was one of my favorite areas of study and it still makes it's way into my thinking from time to time.

Cool. The only weapon I can use at all is a bow and arrow, and even with that my skills are less then mediocre. Have you seen the previews to Dragonball Evolution yet?

I'm not particularly good with weapons either but I have no training. I have seen the trailer for Dragonball. I don't expect it to be a decent film but it might still be fun. I'll wait for user reviews to add up.
