The Winter Hike | Lyra Laurs

18 June 2019 - 08:30 AM

Location: Zaadja, Warm Cabin at the base of the mountain ranges

Time: 0700 Hours

Equipment:Winter ClothingAlterra Sidearm PistolBlood of the CountBlood of the Massassi

With: Lyra Laurs

 

The Sith Lord rose from his bed, placing the thermal covers back in place. He grabbed his pants and boots, pulling them on. He t hen grabbed his tunic, sliding his arms into it, then buttoning it up. He tightened the leather belt around his waist, taking the two lightsabers he had brought with him, and clipping them onto his belt. He grabbed a pistol, a few clips for it, and put them in the duffel bag, along with a spare coat, medkit, and some armour pieces. He then went over and grabbed a chair from the wall, pulling it around infront of the fireplace. He then forced lifted some wood from the pile, and placed it into the fire, raising a hand, a fire then lit, and rose into the chimney, where the heat was absorbed and redirected throughout the cabin, warming the chilly wooden structure. 

 

He sat by the fire a few minutes, then stood up. Taking some eggs, bacon, and a few simple, yet nice tasting spices from the cold storage unit. He put them all on a pain, which he then hung directly above the fire, making a nice, sizzling noise as he sprinkled the spices onto the bacon. He flipped them over, then stood up, and walked over to his daughter's bed, gently shaking her shoulder with his warm hand. 

 

"Lyra... come on, wake upppp, rise and shine. Unless you wanna miss breakfast. I made bacon and eggs."

 

He then let go of her shoulder, and went to take the few steps back to the fire.

  • Intent: To sub a new lightsaber for Taramaz
  • Image Source:  Dooku's Lightsaber, recoloured and edited by me.

  • Primary Source:  Darksaber

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Darksaber
  • Size: Average
  • Weight: Light

SPECIAL FEATURES

DESCRIPTION
Taramaz Laurs, in need of a more practical lightsaber for his newer fighting style, retired his old lightsabers, the 
Blood of the Massassi, and set about renewing, and healing one of his Blood of Copero Crystals, returning it to a fully stable state, and took the Black Lignan Crystal from the same hilt. He then set about forging a large lump of songsteel into the individual pieces for the hilt. He decided upon using a design similar to Count Dooku's final lightsaber, but the metal adopted a darker steel colour. The grips were of a darker, higher quality leather, and he finished it off with Electrum detailing, using molten Electrum to delicately detail the saber. 

 

Once the pieces had been created, he set them down on a workbench, where one would hammer out armour. It was here he used the force to assemble the saber, the crystals taking place in the middle. It took less than twenty seconds for the Sith Lord to forge the lightsaber together. Once the floating weapon laid itself down on the table, he took hold of the cold, light, but indestructible hilt, and twirled it, before he activated the fiery, yet elegant black blade. He then walked off to go see what it would do against training droids.

Strengths:

  • Lignan & Copero - Can cut through many materials with speed and ease, thanks to the Lignan Crystal. Aswell as resist the effects of Cortosis, thanks to the Blood of Copero crystal used
  • Waterproof - Operates under water
  • Elegant Design - The design of the saber allows for more fluid movements, and different ways to use the lightsaber while using the same form

Weaknesses:

  • Copero - The crystal will begin to deteriorate, and will become unstable after a few years. requiring a crystal exchange
  • Single Hand - The Lightsaber, due to it's curved hilt, is more difficult than others to wield with two hands
  • Songsteel - If the hilt gets damaged, all the affected pieces will have to be reforged, as songsteel is extremely hard to reforge.

The Forgemaster's Hammer

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

 

  • Intent: To create a warhammer and hammer for masterful forging.
  • Image Source:  Skyrim
  • Canon Link: N/A
  • Primary Source: N/A

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Warhammer/Forge Hammer
  • Size: Large
  • Weight: Heavy

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Can ground lightning.
  • Can crush bones, shatter rocks, etc
  • Alchemically enhanced to be indestructible
  • Alchemically enhanced to be able to heat something up, to lighting the ground on fire, to turning stone into molten lava at the wielder's thought. Similar to  Convection.

DESCRIPTION

 

A true master piece of metal-work and alchemy, the Forgemaster's Hammer is a large warhammer straight out of tales of vikings. It's top heavy, giving it extra power for shaping molten metals. It also allows it to shatter boulders, crush bones, and do so much more. It is alchemically enhanced to be indestructible, and able to turn rocks into flowing lava, strike out with controlled fire. It is comparable to a bigger version of Mjolnir, the Hammer of Thor, except it's larger, vastly different in appearance, and controls fire instead of lightning. It is made of Cortosis, giving it the dark gold appearance it possesses. It was not enhanced with either side of the force, rather both. The destructive fire was enhanced by the dark side, but tamed with the light side.

Strengths:

  • Top Heavy: The head of the hammer is top heavy, giving it extra power when swung
  • Indestructible: The hammer is alchemically enhanced to be indestructible
  • Fire Hammer: The hammer is alchemically enhanced to be able to raise the temperatures of near anything to extremes

Weaknesses:

  • Large: Due to it's large size, and weight, most species would need to use two hands to wield it effectively
  • Heavy: It is very heavy, to the point where a Wookie wouldn't be able to swing it precisely with just one hand
  • Presence: Although it was not alchemised by one side of the force more than the other, it still gives off a presence with both sides, albeit small compared to a Sith Sword, it is still able to be detected

Frost Edge

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

 

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Battle Axe
  • Size: Average
  • Weight: Heavy

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Mostly lightsaber resistant
  • Alchemically enhanced to make wounds more painful, and send a chill in the victim's bones
  • Alchemically enhanced to never lose it's sharp edge

Strengths:

  • Frost Arts: It is enchanted to give it's wounds a cold, bitter bite, making it more painful. It can also send a cold freezing feeling over the victim's body, or the area local to the wound
  • Ever-Sharp: It is enchanted to never lose it's sharp edge
  • Mandalorian Iron: Being made and reinforced with Mandalorian Iron, lightsabers find extreme difficulty in damaging it, and it is top heavy, giving it more chopping power
  • Dark SideIt is strengthened when around Dark Side Nexuses or sources of Dark Side Power or energy, i.e: Other Sith Swords, Sith Holocrons

Weaknesses:

  • Light side: It is weakened when around Light Side Nexuses or sources of Light Side Power or Energy, i.e: Jedi Swords, Jedi Holocrons
  • Heavy: Despite the reinforcements being made out of Songsteel, it is still made of wood and Mandalorian Iron, making it heavier than if it was just Songsteel
  • Presence: Dark side presence means that unless you somehow hide it, Light Side users can detect you
  • Poor-Handling: While Brylark wood is as hard as metal, it is still not lightsaber proof, and requires reinforcements to be able to survive a blow from a lightsaber

 

DESCRIPTION
Forged by Taramaz himself, it was a process spanning multiple weeks. He had enough experience with making and shaping Mandalorian Iron, and axe heads, so the 'blade' or head was no problem. Carving the handle took longer due to it's durability, and how hard it was. It ended up being a case of using another sword to carve the handle. The most difficult and time consuming part, however, was making the Songsteel reinforcements. Songsteel was elected as it was light, essential in an axe, as it gives the head extra weight to swing on, and it was lightsaber resistant, giving it the improvement over Brylark. However it was immensely complicated due to the difficulties of shaping Songsteel. Weeks later, the axe was complete, and Taramaz killed fifteen Wampa(s?) with it, and used their blood to fill a sacrificial pool in a millennia old temple on the planet of Inferos, on the ice side. This gave it the ability to sting wounds more, and give the victims a feeling of freezing. It also gained the ability to never lose it's sharp edge.
