Do we know what the numbers where for how many of each sword were produced in total?
This fantasy sword line may have Hindenburged, but those that purchased one of these blades is now an owner of a particularly limited edition weapon. I'm a bit disappointed that the Aelutian Gladius never made it to production.
I was going to buy one but opted for their grosse messer instead which was a giant mistake as it turned out.
There were two versions of the Aelutian gladius in the Eletreus timeline. The early pre-Empire version is the one Scorpion Swords makes. The later Imperial version was also a member design, and it didn't make it into production.
It was my favorite of the BCI swords. And I really enjoyed rendering Aofie for the webcomic... she was a fun character.
Tbh I consider doing things with it on my own lol. Just for the heck of it.
But I keep forgetting how lazy I am. I'm a man with too much to do is how I justify it 😂
Super happy you and raylon enjoy the sword design lol. It takes the place as a ceremonial tool for me at the moment since there's not much I can do in an apartment
But renting a house is in my goal list for the next couple years. If I can score a place outside of a city I'll be pretty stoked. Lotta acreages to rent I think
"A man with too much to do is how I justify it"...exactly, "well I should probably start with a drink" lol
And space is a serious consideration. When I lived in a city apartment, I had my bedroom become a dojo (thank god for wood floors) with my bed crammed into a corner. Thankfully guests enjoyed the living room and dates didn't mind the peculiarities.
All the swords we brought in have been liquidated and the only swords still available are those that Scorpion Swords made, albeit rebranded as generic Fantasy Swords and renamed.
I posted about it in more detail here at the legendary swords blog - plus there's also some info on what direction the LS site is likely to take from here and some behind the scenes stuff, including previews of a prototype that was in development when the project was canned (but will still be made as a one off custom for my lifelong friend who designed it - though as a one off the cost of brass molding and the detail that will go into the design makes it incredibly expensive).
Some previews of where this one off is up to - the Sword of the Sakkala Spider Riders - a spider themed blade with steel 'fangs' running down both sides of the ricasso and clusters of black obsidian spheres held by cast brass claw like hands representing the eyes of a spider.
While it has been disappointing that the only way we could sell everything was to liquidate it - at least some of the funds invested have been recovered and we can move on to whatever is next.
When things like this happen in life, you have two choices: either give up completely or change course. Personally, the only time I give up completely on anything is when it is clear that the original course is fatally flawed, otherwise I firmly believe that where there is a will there is a way..
One day that site will find its direction - but for now, well, I return you to your regular programming..!
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the project in one way or another. And for the lucky few who were able to grab one of the deals before they all disappeared, hold onto it - they could well become valuable collectors items one day...!
RufusScorpius: The shoulder surgery is fairly straightforward, it's the recovery that is a real horror show. Not looking forward to it, truth be told

christain: Sorry to hear you are still having medical troubles, Rufus. But, hey....you've got a strong wife and healthy girls. Let THEM do the paddling.

RufusScorpius: Sounds like a great deal of fun, which I won't be enjoying any time soon. I'll have my shoulder in a sling for 6 weeks at least, then therapy for 4 or 5 months after. Maybe early fall I can get out camping or someting.

christain: No need for a rope swing there. There's one spot where there's a deep pool of crystal-clear water with a cliff to jump off. Little fish nibble your toes while you swim. It's literally like another world. Wonderful.

seth: Sounds great Christain. We used to do that when stationed in Florida. We'd canoe in the maze of the blackwater river--always find rope swings and such people had set up.

Ouroboros: Porch damnit.

christain: I plan on me and the wife going boating on the river at Beavers Bend, Oklahoma. You can float your cooler behind you and pull up on a sand bar and camp out. Great fun.
Jan 20, 2021 4:16:08 GMT
seth: yeah trying to plan summer camping trips now--I can't wait

RufusScorpius: Mmm, campfire, fresh fish, some 'taters gathered from the woods... paradise....
Jan 18, 2021 14:08:25 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: Don't camp too close to the forbidden forest! A word of advice brother.
Jan 18, 2021 10:12:35 GMT
christain: If I were still in my teen years, I'd be camped by a fire on the edge of my pond with lines in the water...hoping to catch breakfast. If not, then go foraging the woods for nuts and berries. Not the easiest, but you'll live.

christain: A campfire and a good bottle of Scotch sounds pretty on-time right now. But only if I have a waterproof tent. The weather here is as unpredictable as a new wife. Watch out for the forest Elves and Gnomes.
Jan 18, 2021 6:34:48 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: My old friend! Well... you will always be welcome for a spot at my campfire. I am preparing to brave the forest again for some more research.

christain: Hey, Rufus! Sorry I haven't been on in a while to chat. Just too busy with the holidays and suffering a few medical setbacks. It really bites getting old, but I can still perform. My wife may have a different opinion, but I'm referring to swordplay.
Jan 18, 2021 2:45:15 GMT
RufusScorpius: Oh, yes. "Real life" I played that game once. Outstanding graphics, but horrible game play.
Jan 17, 2021 13:33:58 GMT
nerdthenord: Howdy scorp. Just been kinda busy with real life.
Jan 16, 2021 14:44:23 GMT
RufusScorpius: Hey there Christain, Nord! Long time no see...
Jan 16, 2021 1:15:04 GMT
christain: What's up, LG! Have any new goodies to show us?
