As I stood chained to the dungeon wall the man pointed to the hooded figure and asked me "What do you know of the Antislar people?"
"Only what my Remusian friends tell me, not much of it good" I responded.
The man chuckled and turned to the hooded man "Kill him!" he demanded.

The hooded figure pulled out a long sword from under his robe.  He raised the sword up to a nearby torch and ...........

......the sword burst into flames.    The hooded man turned to me and laughed.  He stopped short as he looked at me and realized I too was laughing.  This apparantly angered him because he quickly lifted the sword to strike me.  

The funny thing about the Flame Control spell, the hotter the target the more devastation it causes...and boy that sword was hot.  As the hooded figure burned I easily convinced the surviving man it was in his best interest to let me go.   And he did. :)

Comments welcome
(Art perhaps we could try the flash animation on this one too)

Ditto, I abate my breath in anticipation. Unfortunately, I can't give you Aura  :( but have a moral aura - all the satisfaction of a real aura without the extra weight!

PS, any ideas on how you're going to get out of this one?

Looks already now great, Seeker!

I wondered - is it "allowed" to have the hands holding the sword in the picture? What kind of background would  be required? is it a picture in the compendium (book)?

Who is that good lookin.   ;)  Yes we had a small debate on hands and weapons when Faugur painted the Remusian sword.  Some people felt it should be required to have hands.  That was shot down and it was decided to leave it to the artist and the comments.  In this picture I need hands because the sword will be on fire and it doesn't work if the sword looks like it is laying on the ground or hanging from a wall.  

Yes, background, lets discuss that once I post the fire version.  I will be open to ideas.

Athviaro, as far as escaping this situation.  Well simply put, don't threaten a fire mage with fire. evil

I'm asking that, because I have a bow ready, but with a hand on it, without background though and I would not know, how it should look like.

Oh Talia! When my eye skimmed it casually for the first time, I thought you were about to shoot someone!

Ooooo.... a very young fire blade.  I like it.  Maybe we can get Art to do that Flash trick with this pic as well.  Just the blade, then the blade on fire.  Personally, I can't see anything wrong with either pic, as far as my vision of the sword went.

Others might have technical issues, however.  I didn't notice two left hands holding the sword or anything though. :P

Oh, I don't want to meet such a blade afire!

I think your hands are very finely done, show more skill than the blade itself - or am I wrong? ;)

Alt, why is it a very young fire blade?

According to the entry, older Fire Blades take on a blueish hue. Could be that? I don't know.

Fire blades start with a yellow flame and progress through orange purple and and finally blue as it becomes old.  The flame also starts larger when it is young and progresses to a small flame by the time it is blue.  So Alt recognized that this was a young blade.

Yes, newer blades have an orange yellow fire which is quite large, but an old blade has a blue flame that is very small, like a liquid rolling over the blade.

Sword, flames and hands all look magnificent in this one, Seeker! I really like it how the flames wrap around the blade, looks very much alive and quite dangerous to any foe as such...  grin So all around really wonderful stuff there!

Only not very nice thing about this one is the background, which could definitely be a bit more exciting that the gradient tool exercise right now - but I assume you wanted mainly to focus on the sword itself, and it turn out beautifully! - Aura +1!

And yup, we can indeed to that Flash animation here as well, I'd only need to switch pictures at the dagger animation, and we'd have another nice weapon effect. - If the troubles with the Dagger animation can actually be considered solved, that is...

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
