Title: Using magic to draw weapon?
Post by: xerampelinae deicida on 27 April 2006, 23:41:00
I'm thinking about doing a weapon that is usually hidden in clothes. The handle grip would be made out of feathers and the weileder would also have feathers sown on the inside of his sleaves near his wrist or in his glove. This would make it possible for someone who was barely a level one mage to draw his weapon from his boot with out bending over or reaching down so he could draw it more quickly and more stealthfuly.

I figured I'd post this idea in the magic forum before I wrote anything that used it so people could critic it and work out any problems with it.

This idea is partly realised in a CD (Terra Artemos - moonblade). But Terra is no mage and thus untrained, she isn't aware of this either. Her blade comes in dangerous situations "very easily " to her hands, so this effect is about only a few grains. Art helped her with this idea some time ago.

Terra is quite aware of the ability, I think, but has very little control over it.  

I'm not sure a level 1 mage could do telekinetic stuff yet.  Even if they could, a weapon might be too heavy for them to move.  Also, why the feathers?  I don't get why you seem to want them sewn everywhere.  

This is also in the wrong forum, BTW.  Somehow you've posted it in the Nybelmar forum instead of the magic forum.

Would the drawing of the weapon be visible or invisible?  I ask this as the method in which in emerges would be significant as to is acceptance.  Summoning spells are not allowed however Telekenisis is.

I should move this to the magic forum but I'm not sure how to do it.

The reason I'm thinking of using feathers is because thats the reagant for telekenesis.

The weapon is a fore armed length sword so it shouldn't be to heavy.

The sword is visible it is just concealed in a boot. The weilder uses telekenesis to draw the weapon quickly.

Its possible, if the person has knowledge of the spell, however I would wonder why draw the weapon instead of sending a boulder crashing into thier enemy?  Its rather unpractical.
