    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    I was looking back to The crystal shard and Icingdeath deals ice damage. This is how Drizzt defeats Errtu.

    Drizzt is just being noticed. Dungeons and Dragons carry out charecters from The Forgotten Realms and fans are being reminded of Drizzt.

    By the way I own Icingdeath and the sword is great! (Compared to other Windlass swords).

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    Well, given that I am a forgotten realms fan and a fan of all D&D games including Baldurs gate I thought this would be a fun thread to participate in.
    Now to answer all your longing questions...
    Most people when they hear that Scimitars are "curved" blades think that the whole blade is curved.
    There are in fact several different sword types under the scimitar category.
    There is the standard arabian fully curved blade but in later dates the European scimitar was designed (I think by the Italians). It simply has a tapered tip like the ones you've seen recently.
    Icingdeath in the games was a +3 ice sword but in the books it simply snuffed out fires and the life force of fire based creatures.
    Twinkle was a +3 attack and +2 to armour class (defender or defending blade) but in the books it was just an off handed sword (the one a sword expert uses in their left hand to parry attacks)
    As for them looking the same, they would have similar shapes and sizes due to both being european scimitars but I reckon Salvatore just decided to cop out and make them look almost identical for simplicitys sake.....
    Did I miss anything?

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    I havnt read the whole threadbut as far as I remember,Icingdeath does not deal ice damage it neutralizes the effects of flames to the wielder, and banishes demons,and Twinkle was given to him by the wizard when they were looking for REGIS not MITHRIL HALL .As for the shape its the way I thought they would look because you dont exactly see a scimitar used in the middle east with the fatter end as a slender weapon as they have always been reffered to as slender scimitars ,and the oversized butter knife comment I would like to see you say that when its slashing your throat.

    Drizzt swords

    I am planning on buying the Twinkle or Icingdeath sword, and I was wondering if anyone knows if they are sharpened or not?

    Re: Drizzt swords

    Didnt you alredy post this question in another thread? anyway I read a few places that say they are not sharpened so I would guess they are not, and why do you want them sharpened?I rather have for display because they are not exactly cheap in my opinion, and I rather get a similar scimitar that I would not be too afraid to damage while handling it I also posted in another thread that a good practice "sword" I made was a stick that I put metal pieces in to make it weigh and be morebalanced like a real sword, though it recently cracked when me and my neighbor were doing one of our duels,and I unseccesfully hit his staff which after the duel was over caused a crack and I am now working on a new practice "sword".

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    I must say, these swords for sale don't match my imagined scimitars. To me, being a fantasy creature and using the word scimitar, I envisioned a much thicker blade with a more pronounced curve. Not a straight, thin blade with a curved blade tip. Apparently the author approved the design, but they just don't feel "fantasy" at all to me.

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    Ok now Mr. Fire snake you do not know forgotten realms. Icingdeath gets it name from the ice damage it deals to its opponent. It takes energy away from its weilder to deal ice damage. This is how drizzt defeats Erutu.

    Re: Drizzt swords

    This sword does not come sharpened. Fire snake I know you are lieing because one the sword is made out of carbon steel and it is fully functional and two carbon steel does not "crack". I have icingdeath and it is one of my favorites. I have alot of extremely high quality swords and icingdeath is not the best but for some reason I love this sword alot. It is very sturdy feeling and the hilt is silver plated. Buy it its worth it.

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    I have just reread the siries and yes it saps his strentghth to banish demons but not deal ice damage, it neutralizes the effects of fire to Drizzt, but it does not deal ice damage to other non demonic creatures,please read again and note that it does not say that it deal ice damage but ,"feeds" of of the lifeforce of the demon.
    And please dont tell me I dont know forgotten realms for I fear it is you has overlooked a few things.

    I am sorry to double post but, never say to someone that they dont know something, because maybe they do know it,such as this case you may be in an akward position of apology .

    Re: Drizzt Do'Urden's weapons

    I'd also recommend against posting such sanctimonious replies. There's no need for either of you to get up in arms about this. Please both keep it civil, we're all here to have fun, not prove how much better we are than others.
