---------Tarnish

commission from IllEatYourself

It gets the name from the blue/black/silver color of its blade, which resembles the blueish spots that sometimes result in tarnished silver.

"The blade's unique ability is that its physics are REVERSED. It grows dull over time if it's left alone, but it grows sharper with use, cutting better with each strike made by the sharp edge. In other words, if you let it sit on a shelf for months, it eventually becomes no sharper than a butter knife, if it's even that sharp. If you cut things with it each day, however, depending on how much you use it, it will eventually become one of the sharpest swords in existence, able to cut cleanly through wood in one swipe and even leave small cuts in metal (although it will probably never reach a point where it can cut clean through metal). A side effect of the sword becoming sharper with use is that it never breaks"


-------- Ezvág

In the middle of the 3rd era, Enhir's priests and... adventurers estabilished a certain way of enchanting. One, that was later put back on the shelf. The method was more like the expression of the artist than the creation of useful magic items. The crafters etched the knowledge of forming and reshaping of materials, so that will somehow add to any benefit on the battlefield. They tried to find out - and belived deeply - that certain bug shells can be made harder than steel (not after steel is also reinforced with magic). The result of these experiments were hundreds of scavangers hunting the wilds for creatures, and eventually lots and lots of magical trash. Most of these works - like this one - would look awkward and felt useless for the first sight. Zanahir Tetto, a gwinn craftman, who was using his own crafts in need thanked his life for the sword, because the marauders did not recognize his sword as a weapon. That later cost a head of the bandit when realized that "Ez vág..." or in Englissh "This thing cuts". Enhir's priests are hunting down trash like such, so that self-proclaimed self-confident "heroes" might not die wielding such hallmarks of history. As if a villain takes posess on one, they simply don't care.

Wait you commissions? Could I ask you to do a few for me? Or are you busy?

My commissioner asked me rods. fifth and sixth matches the descriptions (the gold and ice) as you will see them.

I'm working on paying commissions right now. They aren't specified - yet, so I can do them how I like it. If you don't care, that they will appear in a mobile app game, (and I sell them) then go ahead. You will see them in my gallery.

Also if you are willing to pay for them, I will send them to you.

Well, okay then :P Prepare yourself!

1.) Stargazer - Short sword with jagged serrated blade, hilt adorned with spikes to prevent inexperienced users from wielding it. The sword becomes much stronger at night due to being made of Mythril.
2.) Khamsin - A Khopesh (sword used by ancient Egyptian cavalry) that feeds off of the light of the sun. Made of pure Sun Silver and bane to dark magic users.
3.) Soul Sever - A massive scythe made of Shadow Steel and Poplar wood, forged by the undead denizens of Erebus. A single scratch from this dark weapon can - as the name implies - rip that target's soul out and absorb it, adding to its total strength in combat. 
4.) Typhoon - Gargantuan two-handed sword forged from the very essence of the world's oceans. It is capable of causing gale force winds and deadly storms when swung. 
5.) Firecracker - Bullwhip made of concentrated hell-fire. This one you're free to experiment with, as even I haven't fully decided what it might look like :)
6.) Yggdrasil - Simple staff of wood engraved with the ancient Elves' tongue. Used less as a weapon and more as an amplifier for healing spells.
7.) Arcturus - Long spear tipped with a shard of Ever-frost, a special ice that never melts even when exposed to direct heat. If the tip touches the target, it flash freezes them for a short time, leaving them vulnerable and unable to attack back.

PHEW. Yeah, I just typed all that. XD

Tarnish seems a little bit different from what I expected. I had NOT expected the blade to have a dragon on it, although it is a nice touch. It seems almost too big. I'd say fix the size and/or location of the dragon, if you even keep it on there, so it doesn't overlap with the part you colored white (I'd say the white edge, but it isn't supposed to be white in the first place XD). Something about it seems a bit out of place though. My guess is that it's because the sharp edge of the blade is white, so it doesn't look that reflective and just stands out sorely. Perhaps make it just a bit of a brighter blue than the rest of the blade to correct the shading so it doesn't look like the "light" is shining directly onto that edge as if it's trying to blind me. XD I also had planned on most of the sword if not all of it being black, blue, and dark gray (I'm talking gray that's only a shade or two lighter than black), with the dark gray mainly being the handguard thing and the pommel. Maybe I will have to show you a picture of the sword I based the design on some time, although I don't know how I'd do that yet. XD I hadn't planned on any orange or bronze-ish colors at all. Even so, I still really like how you made it. It looks really cool. And the top sword looks like something out of a supernatural version of 300, as in it looks awesome and rather ancient!
