Shireen:

Sure, I wouldn't mind working with you on Aeruillin. The only way I'll know what I'll like best is by trying a little bit of everything. ;)

Cool, glad you liked it Dasson. I've changed the wording slightly of the 'traditionally used bit', so that it now reads that it was traditionally used for vendetta or revenge purposes before becoming a standard weapon of the Echiilianni.

As for the metal part, yeah I got that from the Tundra section. I'll change it once you guys have thought about it. :)

Blood Thirst

Description

A short but devestating melee weapon that is kept alongside the favoured Nightooth, the Blood Thirst is a well-balanced dagger that can rip apart flesh in two distinct ways. Gracing either side of the two and half palmspans length of blade, are two distinct edges: one slightly curved and razor sharp, and the other a deadly array of jagged spiked edges.

This silver-grey blade is made out of metal bartered from Kasumarii exchanges with Carabrand, since the abundant metals found in Cyhalloi are both pliable and impure. During the latter stages of forging, the symbol for Echiilan, the Kasumarii deity of Silent Swords and Swift Returns, is etched onto its surface. The sharp side of the blade starts out as the usual edge of a sword but slowly curves out as it reaches towards the end. The jagged side of the Blood Thirst consists of six or seven spiked edges, all of the same uniform length.

The handle, a mere palmspan, is weighted to co-inside with the weight of the blade itself, giving the Blood Thirst a truly balanced feel. This balance is needed since the blade is traditionally held parallel with the ground, and with the blade facing to the right side of the body. Usually found as dark black, the handle can also be seen as blood red, a mark of those fully expertised in the usage of the weapon.

The Blood Thirst also exists in another form - the Kar-ii Handknife which is sometimes used to gut fish or to rip the flesh off orcs, which are then used for other resources.


Usage

The Echiilianni sect of the Kar-ii are the only order who use the Blood Thirst. Using it occassionally in place of the Nightooth, this balanced weapon is ideal for offensive fighting, and for causing both torture and pain. With only two strokes a wound can be torn horrifically asunder, causing much blood to flow onto the blade. Traditionally the Blood Thirst was only really used for vendetta or revenge purposes, before it finally became a standard weapon of the Echiilianni.

Upon death, tradition dictates that the Blood Thirst be past on to the closest kin or friend of the fallen, so that they can carry out the revenge for the deceased. If such an act is impossible, blood must run from the blade for three straight days, before it is driven into the grave of the dead.


Fighting Style

There is only one way to correctly handle a Blood Thirst. Holding it by the handle with the blade running parallel to the ground, the end of the blade is pointed away to the right of the body, with the jagged edge closest to the right arm.

Upon a sidewards swiping motion, the razor sharp side of the blade cuts a wound across an opponents chest, this act so fast, that an opponent does not immediately react, providing the opportunity for the second return stroke which houses the jagged edge. This jagged side proceeds to tear the wound right open - causing as much pain as possible.

The Blood Thirst is an extremely painful weapon upon contact with it's jagged edge, and is always covered in blood - earning the weapon it's namesake.

Though light and balanced, a strong arm is needed to wield the Blood Thirst, due to the second strike which is used to power the returned slash of the jagged side. This is another reason why both the blade and handle are in perfect weight sync, so that the blade is not accidentally forced from the hand during the second strike. Excellent in causing pain and blood to freely flow, it is only ever useful in close weapon combat or stealth attacks, and will easily find trouble facing up against larger stature swords.

The weapon can also be used in conjunction with the Nightooth, as a final deadly strike to a fallen opponent.


Origin/History

The Blood Thirst has been a part of the Kasumarii for as long as anyone can remember. Thought to have been forged in honour of the deity Echiilan, the structure of the weapon bares faint resemblance to the infamous Ashe-Malar. Theorised to have been created by the first Acolytes of Echiilan, it is said to have been used solely for ceremonial purposes, before finally becoming used as a standard deadly weapon. The inclusion of the symbol of Echiilan etched onto the blade is a much recent development, and now every Echiilianni holds a Blood Thirst on their person.

Great. I've already completed a first draft for the Blood Thirst and will post it in the Misc Forum. Was a little harder than I thought, as I had to make sure that I read up on quite a few things so that I didn't contradict anything else, e.g. like the poor quality metals found in Cyhalloi.

Having glanced through the list of races (in order to create a suitable weapon that fits in well with a particular culture) a few caught my eye, like the Sor'inyt tribe. However, the ninja-esque Kasumarii assassains immediately grabbed my attention and imagination.

I would like to create a weapon for the Echilianii order, since they have ritualistic weapons, and lean towards causing as much pain as possible with them. :)

The two ideas I have in mind:

1: Blood Thirst - A short dagger that is kept alongside the favoured Nightooth. It has two distinct edges, sharp and smooth and one with jagged edges. The first is used to slash open a wound, and the latter is used to rip it open even further - and for purely torture purposes.

2: Kar-ii Assassain Arm Guard - An arm guard that is worn on both wrists to deflect incoming swords. Etched onto the metal is a violet crescent motif, symbolising Korenjah, Lord of the Shadows.

What do you think?

Hi.

First of all, I just want to congratulate you all on such a fantastic site, and the apparent success of such a grand project. From the brief sections that I have seen, I'm only just beginning to glimpse the full scale of everything that you are doing and have done. It's fantastic. Keep up the great work.

Secondly, I would like to request to join the development team. A little bit about me - my real name is Lance, I'm 21, male, and live in London in the UK. Been into fantasy books, and RPG's since before I can remember.

If I could join, I would like to start off doing something maybe in weapons or armor, and then eventually move on to some form of writing.
