What kinda sword is the blonde guy on the right holding? Is it possible to tell while it's sheathed?
>>
>>44841949
Looks like a really thick broadsword.
>>
>>44841949
It's the Sword of Light.
>>
This is about talking about Gourry's super magic sword, isn't it?
>>
>>44841949
It's Dymlos, the Swordian of fire.
>>
>>44841949
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.
>>
>>44841949
IIRC it's a light saber.
>>
>>44841949
His official stats in the RPG that spawned him and his companions give him a bastard sword.

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.
>>
>>44841949
A sunblade.
>>
>>44841949
Judging by his hair, a sword of gender change.

While we're identifying anime weapons, what is this a ridiculously scaled up version of, a greataxe?
>>
>>44842666
Doesn't look like anything.
>>
>>44842666
In as far as hard categories exist for these sorts of historical weapons, weapons that were never mass produced, sure. Call it a greataxe. It's a 2h axe-looking weapon.
>>
>>44842666
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.
>>
>>44842825
Not debate over that, but it's clearly what the weapon is intended to be.

She's also an anti-horror hunting andoid, so the weapon might have some other qualities.
>>
>>44842040

Do you mean BESM sourcebook?
>>
>>44843004
No, I mean Sword World. In Japan.
The entire setting grew out of a Sword World campaign idea.

Like record of lodoss war was from D&D?
>>
>>44843267
You fucking hating on D&D the anime, motherfucker?
>>
>>44843495
I think Lodoss was from some sort of jappo homebrew, but yeah, it was inspired by a tabletop campaign.
>>
>>44844001
It was a heavily modified 2e D&D system, I think.

And shit, what 2e system that people play isn't heavily modified?
>>
>>44844001
It started with a D&D campaign, but since they didn't have the rights, they just made their own, very similar game after the transcripts became popular.

This is Japanese dark elf.
>>
>>44842040
That sounds accurate enough. There's enough room on the hilt for both hands, but the blade doesn't look so bulky that you'd lose control of it if you let go with one hand.
>>
>>44843497
That isn't Lodoss War.
>>
>>44845124
Lodoss War is what every party wishes their Campaign was.

Slayers is what every party ends up playing.
>>
>>44843495
Record of Lodoss is actually it's own system.
>>
>>44845124
An old adage is: "RoLW is what you want your D&D campaign to be. Slayers is what it will end up being."
>>
>>44845152
>>44845190

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.

not enough dicks.

Where does Sorcerous Stabber Orphen fit into the equation?
>>
>>44845202
What, Slayers? It gets great, and stops being too random pretty fast.

It has a "save the world" style plot, just a save the world style plot as played by actual D&D players.
>>
>>44845509
It's a middle point between the two: Super powerful wizard is a mostly serious plot
>>

Isn't Lina supposed to be 12?
>>
>>44845821
FIFTEEN!
Though she is kinda short for her age, and a little "underdeveloped" too.
Dammit anon! Always finding the stuff girls are sensitive about!
>>
>>44841949
Magical Magiswords is a fun show, but you got the colors wrong.
>>
>>44845324
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.
>>
>>44845324
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.
>>
>>44846518
how are the non English dubs?
>>
>>44846970
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.

>>44847179
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/

>>44847973
But Hulu is ass.

Especially paid Hulu.

a really nice ass though

>>44848061
Only Revolution and Evolution-R are behind the paywall, but I've heard those are mostly just nostalgia fanbait anyway.

>>44847196
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.

One quality rare in women (and perhaps people in general) is honesty. I will take honest psychopath over lying humanist.

>>44848551
The humanist is usually just a lying psychopath, mainly lying to themselves about their motivations.

>Dymlos, the Swordian of fire.
muh comrade of dusky visage!

>>44848343

Because she is the incarnation of what a well-rollplayed character in a pen-and-paper game would be like. All of Slayers is like watching a PnP game from in-universe.
>>
>>44846907
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
>>
>>44848343
It's the voice.
>>
>>44842001
>>44848619

can you explain to me how did characters equip those disc things on their swords? swords ain't music players or some weird shit like that
>>
>>44846907
That was the mindset that allowed me to finish watching Slayers and to enjoy it up to certain extent
>>
>>44848551
Lina is not an honest person, she will lie cheat and steal her way through her problems if she has to, or there is money or food in it for her.
>>
>>44841949

Hand-and-a-half broad sword?
>>
>>44848775
My nigga. Megumi is so good.
>>
>>44841949
It's a Viking Era style sword with a longer handle and fatter blade because muh art.
>>
An over sized Norse sword with a made up crossgaurd
>>
>>44845509
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.
>>
>>44842875
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.
>>
>>44850683
This... is a perfect description
>>
>>44849630
At least she doesn't lie to herself.
