DWIII - 3d - Chrysophylax - Fujin Kamikaze

name: Fujin Kamikaze
race: human
sex: male
nationality: descended from japanese
class: warlord
artifact weapon: the swords of the four winds
element: air/wind

background:
As the Sword of the Four Winds passed from generation to generation, they came into the hands of a young but skilled warrior, Fujin, named after the ancient Japanese god of wind. It soon became clear that in the hands of the young Fujin, the Sword's true power, thought only to be a myth, was finally awakened. In time, Fujin's skill and power with the Swords earned him the name of Kamikaze - The Divine Wind.

a question regarding my own character before i actually put some concept sketches up...

would my character be able to have 4 similar weapons as long as they only used one magic element? i want my character to be a warlord that uses 4 swords with the power of wind. one sword for each of the 4 winds (north, south, east, west) that could be combined and used together... kinda like cloud's 6 swords in final fantasy vii. the more sword-artifacts the character used together the more powerful the elemental attack. in a sense this is one weapon divided into four pieces... but those pieces could be used independently so i wonder if that still fits the rules?

Wow...that's a pretty great idea, but I doubt it's allowed. Said pretty specifically, "Your character must wield a single artifact or a pair of similar artifacts (two scimitars, two daggers etc)." So I don't know, but I do know you'll also probably have an issue with the whole air/wind ordeal. It's supposed to be air/lightning *(which I know, is a bit of a tough one to combine together).

But judging by your creativity levels, you should be able to come up with something that'll work just fine. :P Take it easy, and I'm excited to see what comes of this....

I think wind is covered under air so that's not a problem. You are only allowed to have 2 artifact weapons max, but if you had your weapons combined in the final images no one would know the difference right?

i had figured that wind fit in the the category of air... otherwise what would be controlled by air?

as for the weapons... i asked about them in the questions thread and big-toe seemed to think they'd be allowed. but just to be safe i'll call the swords 1 weapon made up of 4 component weapons. afterall, if the element is air and he controls the 4 winds... the 1 weapon is the 4 winds, he just has the ability to use each of it's components separately.

probably to avoid confusion i'll have to make him carry the 4 winds as the single giant shuriken so that it's clear that it is one weapon. if i do that i'll have to rewrite his background just a bit to accomodate. thanks for the crit phxfire. last thing i want is to be disqualified for too many weapons.
