"Faerie Flora" violin/blade-bow
mech pencil 0.3, colors on Pianter X

It's a weapon and violin design as well -- for solving the problem for bards who wish to cast spellsongs in combat and still be able to uleash melee attacks. This one is made by faerie luthiers and has 7 strings -- the four regular strings have normal violin tuning; the ones which do not run over the arm can only procude one pitch (viola-like) each. It's made from livewood and is magically enhanced -- sonic, nature and charm spellsongs have heightened effects when cast thru the Faerie Flora.

Now for the bow -- it has a very thin and sharp blade on its back. The hair is rubbed on the strings to produce sounds in the usual manner; for melee attacks, backhand slices are the way to go, so the grip needs not to be changed and the bard is able to resume her playing beetwen slashes quite quickly.

----------------------

Violino para bardos que queiram desferir ataques de armas brancas sem abrir mão de conjurar magias com um instrumento musical. Feito de madeira viva, por luthiers feéricos, aumenta o nível de conjurador para magias de ataque sônico, manipulação da natureza e encantamentos. As 4 cordas normais têm afinação usual de violino; as outras três, por não estarem sobre o braço, permitem apenas uma nota cada, em uma freqüência um pouco mais grave, para fins harmônicos.

Os cabelos retesados do arco são friccionados contra as cordas, para a produção de música. A lâmina, muito fina e afiada, com o fio oposto aos cabelos, é usada em golpes de backhand -- de forma a não alterar a empunhadura do arco, de modo que o personagem pode alternar rapidamente entre música e golpes de espada.

É uma arma do Romância -- requer o talento Músico Marcial para usar (permite ataques com o Bônus de Combate sem redutores com qualquer instrumento -- que possa ser usado como arma -- em que o personagem seja treinado para tocar), causa dano de corte como um sabre, e concede ao personagem um bônus de +2 no valor de conjurador para lançar magia Passional (vermelha) -- aumentanto, conseqüentemente, em 2 o limite de Componentes. É uma arma de estética Silvestre.

Bardos não podem ficar de fora dos combates -- e quando nele adentram, devem fazê-lo com estilo.

Very nice design and concept, i like the detailing and the strings on the Violin, but the one thing that i don't like is how the Violin doesn't have a neck guard so it gives off the impression of more of a cello then a violin. but other then that i really like how the violin looks i would use that weapon :P
ShidoVicious's avatar
You're right about that -- this violin can positively pass for a cello. I was planning to include the neckguard (now I see I should have stuck with it), but I decided against it 'cause I thought the design would get too 'crowdy' with additional detail.

I'm planning a similar bony/necro-themed design for the same violin -- the neckguard will definitely be included then.

Thanks a lot for the comment and for the fav as well!

Diria que vc esta se tornando perigoso! :evileyes:

As vezes sinto falta de nossas conversas...só as vezes!
ShidoVicious's avatar
(A demora para responder, horror, horror, horror...)

Muito agradecido -- perigo deve ser uma coisa positiva, penso eu, caso contrário, não teríamos gente sendo devorada por leões ou ursos na tarefa de observá-los, como o Discovery Channel mostra em alguns documentários.

Sentir falta é nostálgico -- meu sentimento em relação a isso é dividido --, mas por certo sempre tenho os pontos mais importantes das conversas sempre em mente, que nunca deixam de ser de valia.

Wow, amazing! I really especially like the bow design! Its very put together. And the main violin is very pretty aswell, the string placement remindes me alot of the lute, from medival times. :>

Pretty good. I like the violin, but not the bow as much. The violin seems A-grade, but some reason, the bow seems amateurish. But in total, I like this weapon, and it seems like something I would like to see in action.

this is a very cool design : )
I like how the 3 strings are off to the side
ShidoVicious's avatar
Thanks! The 3 strings stuff was taken from a medieval lute, but I thought it would be cool on a violin none the less.
Thank you for the fav also!
