Pitcher of an elven curve blade.....wotsit lick loik?


Pathfinder RPG General Discussion


Anybody know where there's a picture of an elven curve blade?

Silver Crusade

Google?

Some of us object to Google on moral grounds.

I always imagine it as looking like the swords the elves in Shadowmoor wield, in Magic: the Gathering. Rhys the Redeemed's art is a good example.

Oh, yeah; I've heard of it.

It's this thing Craig Silverstein, whose father my mom worked with and I went to karate with made.

You should try 'let me google that for you'


LOL.

I love arguing with people who rage at the evils of starbucks... one of the most moral and respectable companies in existence.

This is the best picture I could find of Rhys the Redeemed. The only problem is, his curved blade looks like a one-hander. So, I'm guessing it's a larger version of that.

@blue the wolf:

It's not even Google themselves I have a problem with, it's their hegemony. I'll never forget the day my LAN party was delayed a whole hour because the internet was down, except my computer worked perfectly. Nobody could figure out why I was the only one who could get online until someone realized I was the only one who didn't use Google as their home page. Turns out Google was down and everyone had too much blind faith in Google to check any other sites.
Plus, it's hard to trust people who take pictures of your house from space and show them to anyone no questions asked. And don't get me started on YouTube.

Believe me, the government already had pictures of your house, you sunbathing, your mother's birthday party, your new car, etc. All google does is provide an open sharing of that information. Not going to google.com doesn't prevent any of that from happening.

But please, don't let me prevent you from being paranoid. Might I suggest a tinfoil hat as a fashion accessory?

Is it okay if I complain about how they overroast their beans so that their coffee tastes burnt?

Ah, Google image search. Majestic in its complete uselessness.

Lots of blades. Only three of them seem associated with D&D or Pathfinder. Two belong to Drizzt and even I know they're supposed to be scimitars. They look, incidentally, nothing like scimitars, but they're still certainly one handed weapons of some sort. The third is Karzoug, who has a glaive with a curved blade.

Elven, Curved, Blade. Select any two. Well, I don't see any curved elves, but I think I have safe search turned on.

I put all that in a spoiler because I wanted to keep this thread about the Elven Curve Blade. I could argue Google all day, but the tinfoil hat comment makes it pretty clear you don't want to take it seriously, and it'd wouldn't be about the Elven Curve Blade.

Speaking of Elven Curve Blades, Ive got an Elf Fighter that took the polearm Master archetype. I sort of want to get an ECB just because I may never roll another character proficient in them, but I've already taken Weapon Focus and Weapon Spec in Licerne Hammer. Is it worth it to carry around another melee weapon I may never use just for the sake of having an exotic weapon I can actually wield?

I am unable to take it seriously because it's so nonsensical. Mustn't use google's search engine lest they peep through my windows?

I have always imagined they look like the two-handed swords used by Elrond's army at the beginning of the Fellowship of the Ring.

Well as bad as some perceive Google to be? They were the only ones who told the Chinese Gov't go jump when they asked for the personal details of those on Pro-Democratic mailing lists and Gmail accounts. Yahoo, on the other hand, just handed it over. I give them kudo's for this.

From PathfinderWiki:

The elven curved blade is a long, thin version of the scimitar. They are rare, even in the elven homeland of Kyonin. The strengths of the elven curved blade is the abnormal shape and weight of the blade, assisting wielders in disarming opponents. Elves have an instinctual understanding of these weapons, finding them intuitive and easy to use. This is not the case for all other races, who at first find them awkward and unbalanced.

PF Elven Curved Blades

edit: I googled it.

Silver Crusade

I always took them as looking slimmer.

Just trying to figure out how a bunch of people being too stupid to check a site other than Google is somehow Google's fault.

Does not compute.

I guess that's kinda what I was figuring.

I like the mtg blade of Rhys the Redeemed as well. And it's good to be paranoid.......just always remember that your best saving grace is not being that interesting to the people in power ;).....

What even is google? I've never heard of it before.
Please, explain it to me,.....in easy terms. Like I'm six. So I'll understand you.

On the cover of Elves of Golarion, one of the elves is leaping in the air, doing a two handed overhead chop with a long, slender curved two-handed blade. I believe this to be one.


Thanks, Nathan!
Yeah; I see it now, the guy's kinda in the background, 10 feet in the air.

No problem! Was looking for it last night myself, while consolidating a weapon list.


I'm still wondering how you get the blade liquid enough to fit in the pitcher?

#30 Unique Magical Blades has pictures in it of each magical weapon, including some which I decided were good representations of elven curved blades. Now when I picture curved blades, the images from this book are what come to mind.

If you have the Rivals Guide there is a picture of a dwarf who is using the elven curve blade.


What Wicht said. Unique Magical Blades has a blade specifically stated to be an ECB on page 7.

I can post a screenshot if it kosher, I'm just not sure if it is...
