Dueling Blade and Glove


Finnias and Wormtongue recently brought TMN news of the new dueling blade and glove.

Finnias asks, "Want info on how they work?"
Paramedic says, "Yes, please"
Phineas exclaims, "That's an exciting weapon!"
Finnias says, "When one has the glove equipped, one can be hit by the blade..."
Finnias says, "but one cannot use the blade without the glove on as well"
Zephyrus ponders, "in simple terms, you can fight in town center"
Paramedic says, "hm"
WormTounge says, "Great for small duels in public."
Paramedic says, "I see"
Finnias says, "The key is you must be wearing the glove to be hit or to hit"
WormTounge says, "Just watch that the Sentinel doesn't see!"

Paramedic asks, "When did these appear? where do you get them?"
Finnias says, "I had them smuggled in..."
Finnias says, "but could only get 2."
Finnias says, "We spoke with Smythus..."
Finnias says, "and he will attempt to reproduce them."
Paramedic says, "hm"

Drib'thgin asks, "So, Finnias, can monsters be attacked with the blade as well?"
Finnias says, "Yes..."
Drib'thgin says, "hmm"
Finnias says, "but it is a flimsy weapon, does little damage."
Drib'thgin asks, "What would you compare its balance use to?"
Finnias says, "Somewhere between a dagger and a rapier"
Finnias says, "It hits like a club"
(WormTounge chuckles.)

The glove lets others hit you. The sword lets you hit others with a glove on, and you can only hit them when you have your glove on.

You also gain the ability to moonwalk while wearing the glove.

All I have to say to Salandra is "Duh."

Do I smell a duel coming on? Get him Salandra!

Unless you were sitting in the fairgrounds when Eldon explained them I'm failing to see how someone could so easily figure out the use of both items as to make my comment "duh" worthy. But you're a Zo, like all other Zos you're all knowing and think the sun rises in the west and sets in the east... *chuckle* =P

Naw, I just read what Finnias said, but what do I know.

And *everybody* knows the sun sets in the east. Where have you been, Salandra?!

A human by the name of Ledon just auctioned two sets of gloves and blades. They're pretty cool. I got mine for 2,900 and he made reference to wanting to sell them for that much, but I assume he was joking.

Also I think he said his father would be selling them, I don't remember.

But I think the most signifcant aspect of the auction was that Ledon, a Human, was wearing one of those frilly shirts... could this be a sign (ooc) that Sylvans wont get that icon? Hooray :D

I bought one from Ledon too, it's pretty cool.

So I guess I'm the only one that thinks this is kinda a waste huh?

Posted by: Leo on June 13, 2003 11:08 AM

Guess so, Leo.

And Salandra -- read the transcript below the picture and you'll see why Mehan said duh. ;)
