Razor chain blade - Mundane magical item

This item appears to be a tipless blade with a jagged razor chain running around it. It has two wheelsNote

each with a minor enchantment that causes them to spin creating a very effective chainsaw effect.

While it is a blade, using it in combat is risky as while the base and wheels are durable, Razor-chains can break and fly off in the heat of battle. These are more commonly used by rich lumber jacks and construction workers and those who can afford them and are often in jungles or forests without a mystic to guide them would be wise to keep one on hand.

I'm kicking myself for not contributing to this sooner. I'm not active on this forum at all and been having some...issues.

How about Vampires as Super Zombies?

Eh. I think two kinds is enough. I'm not opposed to super zombies though.

I'm thinking "Ghouls", "Feed on fresh flesh", "Transformation has left them irreparably mad", "Burn in daylight", "Have the ability to cloak themselves in a skin suit within which they may act normal and possibly walk in the daylight", "The skin suit can look they did as they were when alive but also as anyone they have eaten", "Under the skin suit they are twisted barely humanoid monsters that shouldn't fit in the skin suit", "The skin suit is likely also the only way they can make more of their kind as without it they just eat the whole body", "Even with the skin suit, they are remorseless sociopaths", "Under certain condition, particularly night time conditions, they have an irresistible urge to tear open their skin suits and become ravening monsters or maybe they just like to do that", "It takes time to form a skin suit and if they are caught out in the open when the sun is coming up, they do not have enough time" and all in all they resemble Red Court Vamps from Dresden Files.

Hm. Sounds interesting. Alternatively, there are other options.

Not that anything is mutually exclusive.

Actually, I had an idea for another undead, just not a name until now: "Revenant", "The soul of a dead man that through a number of factors; will-power, desire and thaumaturgical connection, returned and reanimated their old bodies", "Sometimes they skip the return part and just refuse to truly die", "Sometimes they do not understand that they are dead and sometimes they can keep up the charade of being alive for quite a while", "They are kept going by will and ambient magical energy", "Mental deterioration can happen, over time or through death trauma, usually something liken to alzheimers but also producing other madnesses, but others continue on just fine", "Some are so old they are just skeletons now", "Some are driven only by revenge for their death, some just didn't want to do die", "It's exceedingly rare", "They have no weaknesses but they don't have any strengths either besides being unbound by normal humanoid limitations" and generally resembling Discworld zombies.

Is there a table or page where all the ideas are listed? I don't mind contributing but 1) I don't want I do doubles and 2) I'd like to have things fitting with everything else.

Also I have an idea I want to pitch, I'm trying to do some Arc Welding of the various concepts and here's my attempt at working nature in with vampires. ((I.E. Why stakes pin vampires))


Elena and the Nosferatu -

Outside of the abominations there is not a creature Elena despises more the Nosferatu. She views them as unholy in her eyes both do to their hypocritical views on the alteration of nature and due to their status as undead.

It wasn't always like this. Long before the days of swords, complex sorcery and steam or even Hrod. Elena thought she could broker a deal with Anduriel, to see if she could weaponize his vampires as protectors of nature in exchange for giving them a safe haven in her forests and jungles as well as turning a blind eye to their feeding as long as her followers weren't targeted. Ashbleidd came before Elena furious, warning her that Anduriel and his kin could not be trusted but Elena dismissed her as at the Anduriel and the Nosferatu were keeping their side of the deal but things began to change.

Anduriel's influence on the nature of the world became greater, he began to experiment with gifting his influence into his versions of Gift trees, vicious monsters which made Twyn look like a minor threat. Anduriel and his kin then turned on Elena's worshipers and attempted to take it for his own.

The period was known as The first blood war, though it has mostly been forgotten due to it's happening near the dawn of civilization. Those who do remember it carry the scars of it.

Ultimately, the vampires were sent back into the caves and shadows of the underground, but the damage was done Elena and Ashbleidd still do not speak of this matter.During the course of the war, Elena first had to further alter her plants giving many of them the ability to keep Nosferatu pinned this left Elena weakened however. Had Ashbleidd not forgiven Elena and come to her aid the world would look far different today.

Ashbleidd and first twilight warlocks helped aid Elena's clerics and druids, while she recovered. It was the early days of civilization and worship though a celestial god Elena was no where near as power as she is today, and with her worshipers being either slaughtered or turned her power was waning at the time. Ashbleidd held Anduriel off with the aid of Elena's remaining worshipers. Elena recovered but only due to several of her gift spirits sacrificing themselves to return the energy she gave them life with, she put their life to good use though. She tapped into the energies which later became Aegaeus's domain to create the first real anti-vampire spell.

Blessed rain - Elena created this spell for her followers to use which allowed them to call rain but no ordinary rain, this rain is blessed the same way a holy symbol would be and is also infused with the same energy as the sun and even causes plants which absorb it to have a slight glow of sunlight to them for several days, the secondary effect is not enough to kill a Nosferatu but it's enough to keep them from hiding in the forest and jungles, or even walking on the grass. Though the war is long forgot the spell remains though it's mostly used to help crops as it's original purpose has been lost to history. *

Though it's not known this spell actually hurts Elena due to it being a reminder of her sins and the sacrifices others made to fix her mistake, it could easily be named Elena's tears.

And with this edge Elena and Ashbleidd fought and won the first blood war, though neither of them would likely consider it a victory. Elena is grateful to Ashbleidd for her help, but Ashbleidd is still partially bitter toward her though they are not enemies.

I had fun writing this, even if it doesn't make it through.I have more ideas that build upon this them but I figured I'd just leave this here for now and see how it's received.

The Great archipelago-

This is a clustered chain of rather large islands accounting for approximately 11% of the world. It is in a semi-tropical climate and is known for it's jungles and unique creatures, several islands are mountainous and forestry as well. At it's center it has seven chief islands which in total make up for 6% of the worlds land mass.

Many of these "Islands" are in fact connected but just have rather rivers between them about 1/3 of the land is estimated to have been connected at one time.

Main page updated. New ballot tomorrow.

(And sorry if I've been a bit slow lately, folks. My best friend's assistant injured himself at his machine shop, so I'm helping in his place for now. Sheesh, the last few months have been one thing after another for me! -_- )

Oh and welcome to all our new members!
