Greatsword shuriken


Advice


i just need some legitimate stats for one and cost for purchasing or making said thing


I am intrigued.

A shuriken the size of a greatsword? A greatsword that can be thrown as a shuriken? The best new indie rock band of 2012? Inquiring minds want to know about this "Greatsword Shuriken."

Seriously. Because I'd love to help, but I need a bit more info before I can figure out which way to go with this.


like the giant shuriken (frisbee) from the Naruto anime?

Whatever it is, I think this is what a Storm Giant with class levels in Ninja would throw.


Wot?

Throwing shields.

Buy/craft ring of telekinesis.
Forge a couple dozen colossal shuriken* (1d8 damage; 8 lb. each).
...
Profit!

* I suppose you could also use large greatswords (3d6 damage; 16 lb. each).

Actually, just get the Throw Anything feat and throw a greatsword.


Wasn't there a spell in 3.5 that let you throw a slashing weapon of any kind, and it would return to you? Whirling blade?

DSP soulknife with the 2handed throw blade talent.

Greatswords with the throwing enchantment?


I once had an idea for a greatswordbow, which was a bow that shot greatswords.

Traditional shuriken were just iron spikes. No one used the star shuriken popular media portrays. So giant shuiken would be spears. Throw a spear, call it a shuriken, and there you go.

Geebuz! The last enchantment I'd want on that thing is "returning."

"Crap! It's coming back!"


Yar!

So... you're going for something like the giant double-bladed greatsword boomerang/shuriken thing that Tessai uses from Ninja Scroll?

Link is spoilered due to the graphic nature of the anime.

I was imagining something more like the thing in the third panel here:http://www.mangafox.com/manga/mahou_sensei_negima/v33/c302/15.html
Although, that might not be all that fair, because it's closer to the size of 4 large-category bastard swords that have been welded together.

For that I just use a spear with gravity blade on it and make it look like this thing.

Fluff is the answer.

Well, imagine a female history professor who smoked like chimney and swore like a sailor. That is what you get.

Items needed: 4 Greatswords, 1 vat Sovereign's Glue

Process: Sovereign's Glue 4 Greatswords in the shape of a shuriken

Ta Da!

When in doubt, Sovereign's Glue!

Spears made of metal. That is all they would be. It is all in the fluff.
