Forging Descriptions

Figure I might as well have a new post for the ones I am getting a little stuck on. (I can only come up with so many ways to say something, you know?)

The first one I need help on is...

Double-sided

To be totally honest, not sure what it's supposed to mean.

    Yes, and that has crossed my mind, but not sure if that's the case for what its supposed to be considering dual wielding something like that seems unlikely. Any comments, @Sarapis?

    Double-sided is restricted to blunt weapons, so it's more like this: http://www.darkknightarmoury.com/images/PRODUCT/large/887008_1_.png

    It's probably not the greatest descriptor.

    Anyway to restrict it to just hammers and axes? A double-sided flail doesn't make much sense but a double-sided warhammer and a double-sided axe do.

    Nope, no way to do that. Maybe that descriptor just needs removing. I'll make it so!

    Still missing a fair few, but curious as to whether that style would be acceptable or if it needs toning down in some shape or form. @Sarapis?

    Annnnd I quit for the night! These last few are bothering me. I'll drop a complete list (excluding colours 'cuz @Shirszae says she's got them) and hope in the morning the fairies have finished my work for me, if not I'll get it done before work. Sorry I didn't get it done today like I said I would. :(



    southern
    western
    Peshwari
    vicious
    glorious
    devastating
    overpowering
    colossal
    extravagant
    massive
    mighty
    exquisite
    indomitable

    They're all pretty high level so feel free to have some fun with them. Basic rule as far as I can tell is to keep them to a single sentence.

    Pretty sure the northern, western, and southern are to do with cities without blatantly saying Ashtani, Mhaldorian, or Cyrenese.

    There are already styles for the cities. Duplicating them would be kind of pointless, I think.

    I think it would be better to just make it general in a regional manner. Northern as in Tundra. Western as in... Whatever is west beside Mhaldor. East for whatever beside Targossas. And same with Southern. I say this because it would be better if Tsol'dasi, Moghedan, and such styles were introduced specifically as such at a later point, perhaps gained as part of a quest

    Really just have the last eight colours which Zae says is coming along. Ellodin helped me with the ones I was stuck on, so we'll be ready to go very soon! You know, assuming they're good enough and I'm not 100% sure I should have been the one doing this after I did it because I feel like there's a lot better people for this sort of work.
