Are all Galvitars the same Forceblade?
« on: December 23, 2013, 10:37:29 AM »
It's not legendary, but they all share a very particular name. I'm guessing that since it's made of pure force, it can exist in multiple places at once?

Otherwise, why does every Forcemaster give their Forceblade the same name?

This is my favorite story question ever.    :D
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

"Galvitar" could be a name for that type of weapon (a blade of pure force), much like "Lightsaber" is a general name for a specific style of weapon.

Since there isn't an existing term for "Will-generated-force-sword" it could simply be "A" Galvitar rather than "The" Galvitar.

My guess would be that Galvitar was the mage that createfd the Force Sword spell, and he named it or it was named in his honor.

My guess is that "Legendary" is for Creatures while equipment has yet to receive its equivalent term.

Accepting nominations ...  :)

Sectarus and Mordok's Tome are existing equipment with the Legendary trait.

That is what I get for guessing while on vacation. Deleting the original post. :)

This one is old but I have a grain of salt to add...
A Galvitar to me is the type of weapon and comes from: Galvanic + Scimitar.
A scimitar made of pure flowing energy!

The master always said that duels must be decided by the skill of the mage, not the number of his minions... he didn't know what he was talking about!
It requires great skill to summon and control an army of creatures, and great is, also, the reward!
