Ideas for a cool weapon?

Postby Enigmia » Thu Apr 04, 2013 1:39 pm

So with Contracts of Hours, there's Restoration of Dawn's Beauty (make an object new again), and Thief of Days (age an object).
RDB has the catch of; The changeling or some member of her family owned this object before the changeling was abducted.
TofD has the catch of; The changeling knows the name of a former owner of the object, who’s now dead.

So, since this combo is crying out to be used for something, can anyone think of something that can be weaponized both when brand new, and when aged by time, and in different ways? 'Cause all I can think of is uranium, and that's not something you should use lightly.

o.O

Weaponized not so much but there are plenty of things (maps of the new world, various artifacts) who's value changes greatly with age. You could make a map of North America appear to be 10k years old and lend it to a historian you don't like. They then write a paper on this map and how it's proof of contact between Europe and NA from the dawn of civilization. You then make the map brand new and anyone following up on this historian's work will find them to be a fraud with negative consequences for their carrier.

Sword, enchanted to age when pulled towards you, leaving rust in wounds (cold iron rust?) and become sharp as it was forged when thrust away from you.

Bullets that disintegrate, foiling forensic investigation.

Gun that fires seeds or acorns. Spring contracts might be better for this, but having a sapling sprout from a wound would be nasty. REALLY nasty version: Use seeds of the Hedge itself...

Forensic boondoggle when a rusted gun is restored to new condition, used, then put back to where it was.

There's a few chemicals as break down into nasty or harmless components, depending.

So far as forensics go you can always use Thief of Days on the body. "Sir, the victim was last seen yesterday but the body looks to be from 1999."
