What kinda sword is the blonde guy on the right holding? Is it possible to tell while it's sheathed?
Judging by handle length, its meant for 2 handed usage. So a longsword with an abnormally short and broad blade?
There may or may not be a more specific term. Im not aware of any myself though.
Yeah, it has a relatively weak metal blade on top of the light-saber bit. As I recall it got cut in half by a tough, he popped what was left out of the hilt and did a star wars.
While we're identifying anime weapons, what is this a ridiculously scaled up version of, a greataxe?
It's a labrys, hence her name,
No one was swinging these things around. Might've been dropped on stuff during animal sacrifice, might've been purely decorative.
Nah. I'll admit it wasn't always Lodoss War, but my games never got as random as Slayers. But I will say that I only watched like the first two episodes of that anime. Wasn't really my taste.
>tfw i loved slayers as a kid
>i rewatched it while I worked in my assignments
>realize how retarded it was
I would have preferred the good memories senpai
At least I remembered how fucking hot
and adorablewas Jillas
Where does Sorcerous Stabber Orphen fit into the equation?
I binged a couple years ago and burned myself out at the beginning of the third season.
Still no ragrets. Slayers was my introduction to sword and sorcery fantasy. Also Reena gave me a boner. The Spanish dub is just too fucking good.
I´m starting it again as soon as I finish what I´m currently watching, but this time in German.
Its retardedness is part of its charm. The characters' motivations don't make perfect sense, the world around them has all sorts of weird contrivances both in their favor and against them, and the setting itself just seems to be their to give them a place to adventure in... but all of those little quirks just make it feel even more like a D&D campaign. It may bring back memories from your first campaign -- I know it did for me.
You know how in the first season, Lina can't use powerful magic when she's on her period? I like to imagine that that's
the DM's way of preventing her from spamming Dragon Slave.
Think like that. Try to come up with a meta-narrative about the players. Lina is the min-maxing powergamer who nonetheless remembers as much of the fluff as she does of the crunch, Zelgadis is the edgy brooding guy who would probably be happier playing World of Darkness, and Gourry is the guy who has trouble paying attention when it isn't his turn and knows nothing at all about the game, but nonetheless has the time of his life. It makes the show lots of fun.
Oh yeah, and Xellos is the DMPC.You really get attached to the characters more that way. Except for Xellos, fuck that guy.
Original is not bad, but I can´t understand it and, for once, the Spanish dub was so good that I didn´t see a point in going original.
Tried English. Not my cup of tea. Reena´s voice was just annoying.
I´ve only seen a few minutes of the German dub. Sounds promising. Lots of personality and emotion. Gaudy has a weird voice... Too soft. He seems to be dubbed by a very manly woman or a trans. All in all, fairly easy to understand. Should be a nice step up from Avatar.
I've watched three seasons while working on my miniatures over past couple moths. While the animation had not aged well, the plot still holds its own against most stuff made today. So don't call it "retarded" or we sacrifice you to Lord Zoamelgustar.
Not sure if it's available where you live, but all three original seasons are available both dubbed in English and subtitled in English on Hulu.
Even if it isn't, there's a a way to make it work: http://www.guidingtech.com/17013/easiest-way-surf-watch-netflix-pandora-hulu-outside-us/
Only Revolution and Evolution-R are behind the paywall, but I've heard those are mostly just nostalgia fanbait anyway.
No, he means it's a lightsaber, as in the Star Wars weapon. A hilt that generates a blade made out of light. It's got a metal blade too, hence the sheath, but he can detach the metal blade and tap the hilt with a magic needle to make the blade of light emerge.
You know this thread makes me feel less bad about partly basing the gnome i'm playing on Xellos. The secret-keeping sorta-dick part of him not the demon-lord part... DM wouldn't approve that
Orphen Season 1 is what happens when your stupid DM hijacks the plot with his god awful DMPC's romance drama plot and the party just sorta watches the climax unfold without them and kinda half play cleanup at the end by merging one DMPC's dying soul into another DMPC's unborn fetus.
As seen in her intros/exits, the axe is also her flight system, hence why the axe has rocket boosters that ignite on her special moves.
The axe is the least ridiculous thing about her. She's literally powered by a fragment of a dread dead god of death/human unconsciousness.
