Posted 16 July 2016 - 03:35 PM #1 Geneforge and Avadon - Signature Weapons?

So, as some of you know, I like to art weapons. Now, I've done a ton of work from Avernum/Exile, from the signature Demonslayer to the obscure Justice Lance, but... no Geneforge or Avadon.

Maybe it's just that they're not as descriptive as the old Exile versions, but...that hasn't stopped me before.

Question is... what makes a signature Geneforge or Avadon Weapon? I was thinking for Geneforge I'd go with the Guardian's Claymore and maybe a Reaper Baton, but I'm really waffling on subjects for Avadon.

... Thoughts?

How bout a beautiful scarab, sinking its teeth into your flesh?  Not quite a weapon, but definitely signature.

With Nicodemus gleefully looking on as it goes in.

Avadon has some nice named weapons for the different classes like the Shadowwalker's Blade.  But how about the Fancy Tool Belt for Tinkermages.

The scarab is actually a good idea come to think of it. I just did a Katana, though so the Shadowwalker's gear wouldn't be my first choice.

For Geneforge I would absolutely suggest a baton, but I'd also suggest a Control Rod. The weapons of the Shapers are far more than just steel.

The Agent, armed with Tek's Spectral Dirk, carefully opens the chest to find... Tek's Other Spectral Dirk.

I can't help thinking a living tool may be a nice signature item from Geneforge.

It would be.

In the meantime, here is my rendition of the Guardian Claymore.

The perfect weapon for striding up to someone who's been studying what they shouldn't and separating their head from their shoulders. Bravo.

Nice.  Definitely my favourite so far.

I don't think I can ever look at a living tool again the same way. I feel horrified that I've been carrying 40 pounds of those things in my backpack.

That is really cool, actually. Swords can get generic, but that is hardly so.

A discipline wand or a baton yes.

The skull is interesting, but the thorns are truly gorgeous.

The skull was kinda a last-minute addition. I felt I needed something that said "reaper" in a more general sense.
