  • Infamous And Famous Named Sword And Weapons Game

    Inspired by the 'Need help with names of the Black Sword' thread.

    Each player chooses one "Named" weapon from a science-fiction, sword and sorcery or fantasy universe and add it to this thread, one at a time.

    Unlike other games, this has no order other than that, chaos is encouraged here. :D

    Please write the name of the weapon,type(if you want) and who wields it and/or what world it is from. Thanks! Players can post as many names as they want to, but only one per reply. The number of the item shall be one. :lol:

    Anyway as an example, I shall begin with:

    Name: Courflame

    Type: Sword (possibly a broadsword)

    Character: Gord The Rogue (Ally of Rexfelis-The Cat Lord)

    Universe: 'Greyhawk World' Oerth, Flaeness

    Description: Made from two swords,one half is crystal,one half is black.

    Author: Gary Gygax


    Please Enjoy !!!! :D :D :D

                _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
                _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
                _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."

                            Name: Greyswandir (the Nightblade)
                            Type: Sword
                            Character: Corwin, Prince of Amber

                            Description: Grey/silver in colour, the blade engraved (or perhaps containing) a fragment of Amber's true pattern. Rumored to have been forged with Corwin's blood in Tir-Na Nog'th and alternatively to be one of the eleven Spikards in altered form. Perhaps both tales are true, or perhaps neither.

                              Name: Changling

                              Type: Sword (appears to be a long sword)

                              Character: Morgaine kri Chya

                              Universe: CJ Cherryh's Gates series, not specifically named

                              Description: Forged from a crystal like substance that receives and channels the power of the Gates, the blade is engraved with runic script that spells out the operation of the Gates. The hilt is shaped as a dragon, arms forming the cross piece, tail curling about as the hand guard, jaws clenching the blade. When drawn fully from its sheath, it flares with an opalescent light and a well of utter blackness opens at its tip. Changling is itself a gate, one that casts what it drinks to the void.
