Intent: A personal weapon for Taeli Rae

Development Thread: Spinning Blades of Death, thread: http://starwarsrp.ne...blades-of-death

Manufacturer: Taeli Rae

Model: Double-bladed Spinning Lightsaber

Affiliation: Taeli Rae

Modularity: Limited to focus and color crystals (to make the blade different colors), power cells (different batteries)

Production: Unique

Material: Durasteel, lightsaber internal workings, common red saber crystals

Classification: Lightsaber

 

Size: Single-handed, but the hilt is long enough inside the ring to allow for two-handed grip

Length: 2 meters (with both blades ignited)

Weight: 3 kilograms

 

Special Features: Ringed emitter allows blades to spin around the hilt

 

Description: Based on the weapon the Pau'un Inquisitor that served Darth Vader used, Taeli has developed a similar weapon. The hilt contains the inner workings of the lightsaber, with a half circle of metal acting as a hand guard in the style of a rapier. Two blade emitters reside on either end of the hilt and are connect to the hand guard by locks. The hand guard itself contains asecond half that can slide out and form a full circle around the hilt, allowing the blade emitters to unlock and spin around the ring on a gyroscopic track that can channel the energy produced by the power matrix of the lightsaber.

 

The design is to both be an elegant rapier style lightsaber, while also being a horrifying and devastating surprise when the second blade and the ring activate. The three phase design allows usage in many different fighting styles, allowing the user to switch between modes and use either fast swipes or elegant parries and thrusts. The spinning mdoe also acts as a superb defense against blasters and other lightsabers.

 

The lightsaber has the standard weaknesses of double-bladed lightsabers when in that mode, as knowing where one blade immediately tells an opponent when the other is, even when spinning. The spinning mode also can drain a lightsaber's battery faster due to the gyroscopic ring requiring power to rotate the emitters, meaning that mode cannot be active for longer or risk losing power to your lightsaber in the middle of a fight.

Alright, just one or two things that I wanna address before we get into the meat of things here.

Affiliation: Taeli Rae (not sure what to put here) Modularity: Limited to focus and color crystals, power cells

With affiliations, if it's a personal weapon, just the character's name is perfectly fine. As for the modularity, I'm not sure what you mean by focus and color crystals.

 

Alright, now that that's done, moving on.

 

Without a Dev Thread:

  • Remove the spinning capability for the lightsaber and you're golden.

With a Dev Thread:

  • Everything is golden with the dev thread. A quick, 10 post dev thread with a good post each (I usually go by one full paragraph is a good post) will get you the spinny bits. My reasoning for this is because I've only found one lightsaber that has this ability and that was made/used well before the board's current timeline, about 800 years after the events of Star Wars: Rebels and the movies. The dev thread can be of you making it, designing it, finding it, etc. Have fun with it and so long as it pertains to the creation of the weapon somehow, you're in the green.

I'll get right to work on the dev thread sir, and the color and focus crystals are like making the blade red or purple and so on.

Dev thread complete sir, Popo Link is http://starwarsrp.ne...blades-of-death

 

Also took the liberty of specifying what the modularity is and adding the dev thread to the post itself
