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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
