Default Kubi-o-mamoru (Protect Your Neck)

Item Name: Kubi-o-mamoru
Cost: 10
Description: This nodachi is a weapon of some renown within Coal Country. Sheathed, the whole thing is black. The sheath is a glossy black that glistens impeccably in even the faintest light, flecked with delicate golden leaves sprouting from a thin scrolling vine encircling the scabbard. Likewise, the hilt shares the same motif of black with discrete appearances of gold. The blade is also black, but less refined in appearance, appearing as if it is covered in soot; in fact, when drawn, what appears to be coal dust continuously comes from the blade, such as when it clashes with another blade.

This is a hint towards the more peculiar traits of the weapon. For starters, on command the blade wiill begin to exude a small dense cloud of black smoke around the blade that dissipates shortly after leaving it. This provides an obscuring effect on the exact location of the weapon, instead giving a constant billowing cloud that fluctuates from 6 to 12 inches in diameter around the blade as long as the user wishes. This smoke causes no harm to people by itself and will not, say, fill up a room with sooty smoke. However, once per thread, this can be amplified, causing a burst of thick black smoke to pour outward from the weapon, achieving the same effect as if a smoke grenade had gone off.

Next, Kubi-o-mamoru is a...well, perhaps 'living' is not accurate, but it is close. The weapon has a mind of its own and is able to communicate silently with its chosen wielder. This by itself is rather benign if not coupled with Kubi-o-mamoru's final ability.

This weapon is known for being wielded first by a legendary samurai of Coal Country who was known as The Headsman, gained for his propensity to take the heads of his enemies as prizes. This was aided in no small part by this weapon's ability to seek out the presence of necks within a 30 foot radius, honing in on the blood pulsing through the arteries in the neck where some might take a pulse. Kubi-o-mamoru seeks out that same spot, but not to measure a pulse, rather seeking to extinguish it. The sentience within the weapon communicates nearby pulsing necks, encouraging the wielder to arrange a meeting of the two. This pulse sense is not perfect, however, lacking the ability to discern clone techniques or genjutsu--it registers every apparent clone to have the pulse of the originator. However, it does read the vitality of the source, revealing some general information about the rank and power of the source.


<<All right, so, going off some guidelines in the Item and inventory thread and browsing existing weapons, I am seeing something like: Nodachi (4) + Extrasensory [Pulsing necks] (2) + Consciousness [2] + Elemental [Black Fog] (; that last one is the best I can think of for the foggy blade ability even if it isn't making an extending cutting blade. Alternatively, merdle suggested combined (0) + Gas Weapons [Smoke Bomb] (2), though if it is that, I would revise the description of the smoke effect to be a bit more offensive than at present.>>
