 Description

The weapon is a golden ring, markless aside from a small crater on the front of the ring, apparently the barrel for the fire. It is a magical weapon that spews flames or illusions of flame at the owner's will. The ring is made of pure gold, somehow made to shoot flame. There is no ammunition required, there is no known way to exhaust the magical power of the ring. The ring is fairly small, about the size of an average ring. There is only one of these rings known to exist. There are many questions around how they came to be.

 Usage

Whoever finds the ring and knows how to use it, can use it. The ring is not preferable to a certain tribe or race. The only tradition for this ring is to be passed down father to son. It is used whenever the owner wants. It can be devastatingly powerful in combat as it can burst entire legions of soldiers into flame if the wearer requires. It is extremely rare, there is only one known ring, owned by Robert Junakin (Bobbo the Beggar). It was given to him by his father. How his father (Richard Junakin) managed to come across it is unknown by Santharians.

The few drawbacks of the weapon are its unpredictability. It can turn on the wearer, causing the wearer to burst into flame if it is not used correctly.                                        

 Fighting Style

The ring activates when the user commands with the words, "Fire" and "Valita". The meaning of these words are unknown to all, including mages. The best way to use it is to aim at your target and say one of the words. When "fire" is spoken, it creates fire, simple as that, on whatever happens to be in direct aim of the ring's crater. "Valita" creates illusionary flame, useful for distracting large armies by pretending to burn down a nearby building. The ring is known to respond to the wearer's emotions. When the wearer is angry, the fire from the ring is extremely deadly and powerful, while when the wear is calm, it merely makes a spark, useful for starting campfires. The weapon is useful because it can quickly decimate entire armies. The problems with the ring are that if you have any bit of anger, it causes a huge fire.

 Origin/History

The ring has unknown origins. Some who have been lucky enough to study it have concluded that it was made long before Santharia: long, long, ago. Many believe it to be formed by weavers who took the essence of magic and wove it into pure gold which was then forged into rings. Others believe that it was made by the gods and then it fell to Sorren one day.

But the true way of it's creation is that it was created by a group of wizards, those of both the true flame and illusionary flame magics. It happened really not too long ago. They decided to make the ring to make their two magics one, to make an artifact that could have the supreme rule of fire.

The ring was forged by a common smithy, a man named Lokarius Dunkire, who had a reputation for getting the job done quick but not doing a really good job of it. The ring was very plain and adornless.

The wizards decided that the look of the ring would have no difference. They began to infuse their magics into the ring. It was a long ordeal, stretching many long nights. When one group of mages had infused their magic into it, the other started. The problem was, the first magic was forced out when the new one was put in.

The wizards knew that this was a problem. The gold of the ring could not hold both magics. So, they decided to forge two rings, infuse them with different magics and melt them together. Lokarius Dunkire made another ring for them, this one of even poorer quality.

The wizards figured this would all work out. One group of mages infused one ring with the power of real fire. The other group focused on the infusion of illusionary flame. When they had finished, they took the two rings to Lokarius to have them smelted together. The wizards made sure to tell him to be careful with this one.

Lokarius listened to their orders, and forged to two rings together. However, when the two rings were melted and mixed together, they exploded, killing Lokarius.

When the wizards looked in the rubble they didn't find the ring anywhere. They dug through the broken forge for days. They could not find it anywhere.

The truth of the matter was that, when the forge had exploded, the ring flew up into the air and flew out into the nearby town. Richard Junakin happened to be standing around at the time. The ring hit the ground nearby and Richard peered at it curiously.

Richard reached out to touch it and it burned his hand. It was extremely hot. Richard looked at his hand and saw the outline of the ring branded into his skin. He turned started to walk away in disgust, but for some reason he turned and looked again. He heard something inside him say that he needed to take it, that one day it would be needed.

Turning back to the ring, Richard turned to pick it up again. He picked it up gently. It was now quite cool. He slipped the ring on his finger; it fit very well. He turned and went along on his journeys. He was at this point very young and had not even been to Strata yet.

FIRE RINGS

Fire rings are ancient rings made by wizards centuries ago. No one is quite sure when they were made, but they can make flame and illusions of flame appear wherever the wearer commands. There are many speculations on how they were created. Some think the weavers put the raw essence of flame into gold that was forged into rings by master craftsmen. Others believe that some wizards enchanted the rings long ago when the wizards were closer to their magic, thus making them more powerful. Still more believe that the gods created them, especially the god of fire, and they fell to Sorren long ago. One thing is certain though, they are ancient and powerful.

Appearance:
The fire rings are made of gold with no marks or blemishes on it. They are smooth except for a small crater on the front, presumably the aiming hole. They appear to be common rings, until the wearer calls out "FIRE" or "VALITA". "Fire" makes true fire come forth from the ring. "Valita" makes illusionary fire come forth.

Fire Rings are extremely rare and only a few have them. There is one known fire ring, owned by Robert Junakin (Bobbo the Beggar), as well as an unknown number of undiscovered fire rings.

Okay. This probably won't help much, but I'll give you a list of things I've thought of:

Achan (barbaric human derivation of the Elven word)
Mindollim (name of a world in a book I had tried to write but have abandoned)
Klimn (don't know, but it sounds good!)
Jordonia (based on the name of Robert Jordon, very good author)
Pareese (based on the word Paris, but I think it's changed so much no one will notice)
Glamdra (slight base on Glamdring)
Yidd (looking for a place where Yiddish comes from :lol  )
Eerania (interesting word, I think)
Avacanva (thought of this by combining "Ava" and "canvas," so it would mean "Ava's canvas")
Polce (I think the word is Old English for "seed")
Norellocoi (Tolkienite Quenya for "land of life")
Agarwaenor (Tolkienite Elvish for "bloodstained land," perhaps referring to the battles fought before)
Kientolia (A name based on "Tolkien," since we specifically mention Tolkien on the website, it would be appropriate, I think)

I can probably get more if I have more time to think.

I'm not much of a voice, really, but I say that this "deal" is no longer a deal but a "gift" to Sorren. I can see no other alternative but to absolve the relationship.

Perhaps we should instead ally with an independent MUD company, that does not have it's own world and such for us to go into. If you want a programmer, that would be the best alternative by me. However, it will probably be costly.

I suggest that if people don't quite like the name Aer'ai'chan, then we should make a broken down version of it, something like Aerchan, or Aichan, or maybe even just Achan.

Just a few thoughts.

Well, Tek, you did a good job. Only, I can't imagine the words going to a mournful melody. I think it would sound better fast and lively, but that's just me. Good job though.

Talos is right. Most poems do, but it is not a neccessity. By the way, Lucirina, nice poem. A little unnerving perhaps, but that's okay. Great job!

(This post will be expanded later)

Richard Junakin (1585-1607) was the head of the Executing House in Strata for a short time after his father's death.  He was taught by his father to serve humbly the Ruling House and the Tristin.  When the wicked villian Troas usurped power from the Four Houses, Richard was killed by mercenaries as a Tristin loyalist, leaving his pregnant wife to fend for herself.  Of course it was not long before his widow gave birth to their son, Robert Junakin, a man who would seek vengence for his father's death.  Yet there is far more to tell of Richard Junakin than his death and son.

Tell me which is better:  to die defending your country or to live and watch your homeland die?

Okay, I will look around a bit to see what I can do. I'm thinking of working with religion and cosmology, did I spell that right? I have a new religion in my head and will post as soon as I learn a bit more about the Santharian Religion and stuff.

Hey guys, I was wondering if you would let an aspiring author join you in shaping the ways of Santharia. I would be delighted to help in this endeavor. I can think of interesting things quickly, it's one of my writing talents, and I would love to see how good I can do at a combined effort. I would very much enjoy working with all of you and hope that you will let me do this.

Thank you for your consideration.

What if in this western region, we invented a race of magical tiny little people. They would be fun (and funny). These little people could then go around playing tricks (based on the idea of leprechauns).
