Darth Harbinger, A sorcerer of fear and insanity, Desires to extend that fear into his fighting style.The Handle is Constructed from Song steel He has gathered to prevent lightsaber users cutting his scythe in half and to keep it very light to aid in his swift and fluid fighting style that combines swift sweeping movements with swirling raped slashes similar to duel phase light saber styles . The light saber is also imbued with a Bifurcating Cyclical-Ignition Pulse to Activate under the water.

The link provided is just the image. Not the source. Can you please provide the physical source this came from?

 

Combined with his single bladed light saber makes for a fluid fighting style of his own design that shows elegance, swift and quick movements as well as wide sweeping movements
So how is your character capable of using a single bladed lightsaber, and a Two handed polearm at the same time? Knowing various real world sword martial art forms, this is at best, Very difficult to do, and in some cases literally impossible without harming yourself.

 

The scythe makes it easier to chain attacks together
How does the scythe chain attacks together? I am confused as to what your intentions are here?

 

Blade extend/retract (extends to Mirror a Curved scythe blade)
A lightsaber turns off and on by the users control of it. So when it is off, the blade is no longer there. It would literally just be a Shaft. So what part of the weapon is extending and retracting?

 

Material: Durasteel, lightsaber components.
Please mention songsteel as one of your materials for the weapon. You have it mentioned in the description, but not the materials.

  1. I will get the image soon
  2. This goes in the sense that my character himself is insane to a degree. He does not always take his own safety into consideration for his actions. He would rarely single hand both unless he was in a "do or die" kind of situation and would typically aim the scythe for the ankles wail the single blade would be aimed to primarily attack. Otherwise he would two hand the scythe.
  3. By easier to chain attacks, I meant like he can follow swings of the blade with connecting slashes combined with quick steps, spins, exc in a makashi like style
  4. The saber blade itself would lengthen into a larger more curved sythe blade, not the handle of the blade itself
  5. I will edit that right now

  • Take your time. 
  • It would be difficult to do that, but keep it in mind. I highly recommend just taking it out of the sub since most of the time you would be using this weapon by its lonesome rather than almost always using both at the same time. 
  • That style would be more akin to the "Double Bladed Lightsaber" or the "Lightsaber Pike" fighting styles rather than the Makashi. Makashi is akin to your Fencing weapons like Rapiers and Espadas. Not a Polearm. 
  • You are looking for "Dual Phase Lightsaber" to describe that. Go ahead and add that in when you have time. 
  • Again, take your time.

Auberon I believe I have edited the points you touched on. I would like to keep the duel hand combat style just to practice on it and try to craft a fighting style unique to him and his less then sane mind set. I changed it to not mentioning a fighting style in itself. I understand it will be a hard to master style but I want to bring something unique to chaos. Actually, of you wouldn't mind sending me a few charts or videos on some of the middle age combat? I myself am also a huge fan of that style combat. Thank you also for taking the time to help me fine tune this. :) I know you guys are pretty busy
