Kawunei doesn’t seem to be enjoying this at all.
His glasses are back on the dresser.
Yoth’s comment makes me really wonder about the wisdom of Jarjuna having his sword with him. Err, the one he killed a god with.
Well, aside from “Jarjuna, slayer of gods, gonna kick your lily-ass,” even Assassin-happy Dreadlord Yoth likely finds attempting to assassinate the leader of the human nations a bit of a bridge to cross. The political fallout could range from total war with everyone including formerly-uninvolved races (like the wyrds) to assassins taking HIM out.
As for the sword, I’m curious what the rules are. It was obviously something special to kill a god, but does that apply to dreadlords? Also does it get an upgrade from being, “The blade that felled the Water Phoenix King,” or does belief-affects-reality not apply to gorgeous scimitars?
Ooh, a technical question.
“As for the sword, I’m curious what the rules are. It was obviously something special to kill a god, but does that apply to dreadlords?”
Dreadlord Yoth is just a guy with some magical gear, so the sword would “apply” to him as well as it would to anyone else. While the situation surrounding the Water Phoenix King’s death was unusual (the other gods all but showing up to get rid of him), Jarjuna’s sword is powerful on its own.
It’s not easy to put things on a simple scale, but if you got The Mythbusters to bang them together with robot arms, Jarjuna’s Sword > The Steamblade > Malice > Ant-of-Paradise.
“Also does it get an upgrade from being, “The blade that felled the Water Phoenix King,” or does belief-affects-reality not apply to gorgeous scimitars?”
Belief-affects-reality doesn’t affect much in the setting. Except in the regular psychological sense of “this man killed a god; perhaps you should reconsider.”
