What's an Elemental Sword?
Each element has it's own Incarnation and it's own material ether focus. These foci are in the forms of swords. Some of the Incarnations have not emerged yet. Some of the swords have not been found. Here is a list of both, as well as where the swords are rumored or known to be:
Element:__________Sword Name:_____________Incarnation:____________Rumored Location / Owner:
Fire______________Ingendi__________________Not Yet Emerged_______Cryoforge Volcano
____________Hydronix_________________Not Yet Emerged_______Western Mass Ocean, Ravyden
_______________Cirrus II_________________Saiwin________________Northern Glacier, Ravyden
____________Psyonis__________________Tavo_________________Petra, Priestess of Are
____________Gemini___________________Not Yet Emerged_______Rythyn Rush
______________Jagrandon________________Jessye Shangwyn________Osiris Shangwyn
_____________Necronomicron_____________Not Yet Emerged_______Draven Necros
____________Etherblade________________Not Yet Emerged_______Everywhere
____________Gwyrageddon______________Myself_______________Floating in Hyperspace
______________Kyorune__________________Not Yet Emerged_______One Unknown Point in Time
_______________Blackdiamond Starhead_______Not Yet Emerged_______Xin Flightlift
The swords, when held, allow their owners to use any spell of that element at will. This costs them no ether. However, there is a price to such great power. Here is what each sword does, besides what was already mentioned, for its owner:
Fire:______Provokes owner to pyroinsanity. Becomes drawn to fire. Also physically hot to the touch.
Water:_____Gives owner aqualungs. Can only breathe H2O. Also physically cold to the touch.
Air:________Gives owner everflight. Can never touch the ground.
Earth:_______Gives owner groundlock. Can never leave the ground.
Mind:_____Drastically weakens owner physically. Makes impervious to magical damage, but not traps.
Body:______Drastically weakens owner mentally. Makes impervious to physical harm, but not heat or electricity.
Life:________Impervious to all harm. Limits life when touched once. Can't attack.
Death:_______Ownerbound. Owner dies in minutes if lost. No defending others.
Spirit:_____Gives owner everfear. Requires constant calming. Becomes reclusive.
Chaos:_____Creates a soul-prison when touched once.
Time:________Immortality. Requires constant healing and rejuvenation.
Void:_________Gives owner immateriality. Can't make physical contact. Immune to physical attacks.
The downsides and bonuses will remain even when the swords are not being held, with these few exceptions:
1.) When a sword is put down the owner loses the ability to use its magic abilities.
2.) When a sword is put down it no longer defends its owner.
3.) Another weapon may be used to make up for loss of ability (eg: Jagrandon won't let you attack, so use another weapon) as long as the sword is put away.
