(this enhanced version contains misspelled words and some that make no sense)

Is quite possibly the singal most horrific weapon devised by any sentiant people, cappable of vaporizing any and all organic material in a radius of up to 30 kilopeds*. The Device itself consist of a huge pryimidial frame with a darkly colored cystal orb hanging from a chain that extends down from the top of the frame. on the side of the orb is a metal pannel with two small dials and a small lever, the first dial controls the radius of the blast, the second is to control the time between the time when it is armed and the time when it actualy Releases its balst and alows for the operatot to get to a minumum safe distance. The lever has three setings, when moved to the top of the slot it is set to recharg the device and alows it to drain energy from any ambient light source, when lowerd to mid slot it sets the weapon on standby, and when the lever is lowerd to the bottom of the slot the wapon is armed and will release its blast in the perscribed time. After each use the lever automaticaly restes itself to standby mode. This brings up the second aspect that makes this weapon so horrific, it is 100% reuseable after each blast as it consists of abosulutly no organic compounds.

The folowing is an exert from "weapons of mass destruction: an introduction" which is published by the R'unorian gaurds councill and is distributed freely to all personel involved in the use of such weapons, it also makes a wonderful gift.

...tip no. 23: Smoking can be hazardous to you health, especialy if your standing in a room filled with barrles of explosives.

Chapter 3 section 2:The Firelance Machine

The rare and mysterious firelance machine, possibly the most powerful weapon ever devised, only the most acomplished weapons masters ever even get to see one, even less operate one. still these may be deployed at a moments notice and any member of the  proud R'unorian armed forces may be in an emergancy required to implement its awsome power.

Setup and maintenance: Prior to setup in the target zone remeber to ask yourself these questions.
1.) is the device properly charged? the device should have been alowed to charg for at least 2 days of sunlight before deployment, usage of tources and lanterns may shorten this time but an undercharged Machine may behave unperdictably
2.) do I know the geography of the target zone, where is the quikest path to minimum safe distance, can I get in and out without enemy detection?
3.) can I find a hard stony surface to ste the stand the machine on, remeber the balst vaporizes all organic matter which may cause a massive shifting in soil as th organic compounds are removed.

once you've anserwerd tha above its time for the actual setup, first place the fram gently upon the ground try to get it level but its not an absoluty nessestiy in an emergancy. after the frame is set up move to the orb and look at the controll plate, remeber which dial dose what and what each lever setting means. Just try to remeber that the first dial is the balst radius and the second is time, confusion may cause you to set it to a 30 kiloped radius in one minute instead of a one kiloped radius in 30 minutes. once you have the settings proper move the lever from its upmost position(charg) to the midway position(standby) double check the dials and make absolutely sure that all the settings are right becaue once you switch the machine to armed its impossable to move the lever back to standby without severly damaging the control plate....
(end exert)

Fortunatly only two firelance machines where vere built before Its inventor Greogory firelance destroyed most of his notes and turned his attention to more peacfull persuits. Of the two machines only one is operational, the second was caught in an earthquake and its controlplate was dammaged beyond repair, it curently stits in the archives of the Librarians guild. The location of the functional machine is unknown exept to the members of the gaurds council, it has not been seen for years. Let us hope it remains that way.

I like.

Remind my people never to start a war with yours, however :)

I'm going to post some more on Lotus and the other R'unorian super weapons(don't worry none of them are close to being as powerful as this one though)
