Player Swords

Post by DerSaidin » 2009-11-17 12:06

Each player will wear a sword, and can use it as a malee weapon.
Spells are the main focus of the game, getting a sword kill will be like getting a gauntlet kill in quake, or a knife kill in ET.

Some thoughts:

Swords will be worn on player's belt. Drawing a sword over the shoulder would be harder to animate and could conflict with a ceiling.

Drawing the sword (by switching to that weapon) will perform a sword attack.

Type of sword will probably be a shortsword or broadsword. These terms both apply to swords with blade of 75-100cm. If its curvy I'd say no more than the one pictured.

Guard and hilt should be basic/functional. Not too decorative.

A bit darker perhaps, I probably wouldn't go for black blade.

Hilt could be much darker, and could also have red/blue trim.

I found nice pictures of swords mages would be using around the set game year.

I still prefer the pic in the first post: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/8/8a/Ph-0.jpg

I think the curve looks cool, and the scabbard is also pretty cool - it'd look good at a player's waist.
The bottom of the hilt is a bit retarded. I'd probably swap that for one like the third pic you posted, or something.

Black blade? I'm afraid using that black blade of the sword. Can we use some other alternative weapons?
