2  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Question on: 21 June 2002, 09:31:00
Thanks for the help......:)  

But I have a question.  Would you prefer if I did it like on the website?  Like this: (?)
Rindima-bia.
The Rindima-bia is a simple weapon, a peice of flat wood or metal, that is curved in the middle. The ends taper, being thinner, and more narrow than the rest. If the Rindima-biais wood, the edges would be rather blunt, and when thrown would leave bruises or break a bone, depended on the force used. Metal ones however can have sharped edges, that work like blades. This isnt a close combat weapon, it has to thrown. And once thrown, if thrown correctly it will soar through the air, and return to the user. Metal ones are rarely used however, because everytime someone tries to catch one they'd have to be extremly skilled, or wearing a protective glove, due to the sharpened edges.

They come is various sizes, but would have to be custom fitted to the person which they belong. This is so that is would help more than hamper, and the balance and everything was right for that persons throwing style.

They are rarely used in battle, although they can be (however inconvenient). Most often it is used for hunting. By throwing it, one could easily snap some fleeing creatures neck. But since the weapons are rare to behold not many will know how to hunt with one, or fight against one.

No one is really sure when and exactly where it came from. Orinated first as a toy for children by some elders, hunters in human tribes found that if was handy when hunting. The weapon caused a quick death, or sufficantly wounded animals for them to finish off.



Only a lot shorter......like, if I chopped some more out of it.......
And the name is subject to be changed, along with the history, I'm working on something now.

3  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / A new Weapon {edit} on: 21 June 2002, 06:26:00
I'm trying to get my character okayed, and everything checks out.......except the weapon.  And I sorta want my boomerang.....er whatever it gets named......!  So herea goes!

  Rindima-bia.
     Description
The Rindima-bia is a simple weapon, a piece of flat wood or metal, which is curved in the middle.  The ends taper, being thinner, and narrower than the rest.  The sides could be decorated, but generally they look the same.  If the Rindima-biais wood, the edges would be rather blunt, and when thrown would leave bruises or break a bone, depended on the force used.  Metal ones however can have sharpened edges, which work like blades.  This isn’t a close combat weapon, it has to thrown.  And once throw, if thrown correctly it will soar through the air, and return to the user.  Metal ones are rarely used however, because every time someone tries to catch one they'd have to be extremely skilled, or wearing a protective glove, since the sharpened edges would take off a finger, or perhaps a whole hand.

They come is various sizes, but would have to be custom fitted to the person which they belong.  This is so that is would help more than hamper, and the balance and everything was right for that persons throwing style.

    Usage
The weapon can be used by anyone with enough skill to throw and catch it.  They are rarely used in battle, although they can be (however inconvenient).  Most often it is used for hunting.  By throwing it, one could easily snap some fleeing creatures’ neck.  But since the weapons are rare to behold not many will know how to hunt with one, or fight against one.

     Fighting Style
A flick of the wrist or a forceful throw will get this weapon air-born.  Grasping it by one end, and throwing it while it is horizontal, will make is twirl through the air, and after so far, return (thanks to that curve!)  It's easy to use, although a bit more difficult to judge how the wind, and elements will affect the accuracy of the return.  
Advantages
• When thrown, no matter how hard or far, it returns.
• Many have never encountered it so they have no idea how to counter it.
• It's light weight, and custom carved for the wielder.
Disadvantages
• Not a very practical battle weapon
• If one is unskilled enough they could hurt themselves on the return (or have it return in an entirely different direction)
• The possibility of taking off fingers, hands, heck....whole arms!

The last disadvantage is why when owning a metal boomerang(Rindi-whatever) a thick glove is required, preferably with something strong reinforcing it, without hindering use of the hand.

     Origin/History
No one is really sure when and exactly where it came from.  Right now, if one held it up, and asked someone what it was, they would probably give a blank look, and ask, "Where'd you get that piece of junk?"
Originated first as a toy for children by some elders, hunters in human tribes found that if was handy when hunting.  The weapon caused a quick death, or sufficiently wounded animals for them to finish off.  

Later, the art of throwing, and handling this weapon died down, as more practical weapons came into play. And the only ones found were ones that were used in decorations (hanging it up on the wall to appear as though you know what it is.) .  Very few retained the knowledge of how the simple boomerang worked, and it is generally a thing of the past.


Better and better........I'll think on the suggestion of a war boomerang, although I think i'll have to go read up on them a little first.
