A warden's sword for Harry...
« on: July 06, 2017, 01:22:24 AM »
Now that Harry is back and will again be dealing with the wider world (as opposed to be being dead or stuck on an island), what are the chances that he's going to get a warden's sword (assuming Luccio can once again create them)? And what does every think his standing will be with the wardens and the council in general, now that he's the winter knight?

I liked him using the Chinese sword in Changes... kinda fits with his inner geek and fighting style.

I have to wonder if there is a sword hidden away for the warden of the well. The position might predate the swords, but it would be a powerful artifact to supplement him.
Just like how Harry can use McCoy staff, a warden could use warden tools. Also, he could borrow Mccoys warden sword, it is sure to be better than those off the shelf sword most warden have.

The only appeal of a warden's sword is the ability to cut through enchantments.  That, and the durability of a metal focus that doesn't snap in half when you use it to play Whack-A-Ghoul.

Personally, I like the idea of the Winter mantle being used to supplement his staff.  He could use ice to form edges along four feet of its length, leaving him a two foot handle for his ice sword-staff.  Not to mention he could use ice to make it a spear, or even a sickle.

Downside would be its weakness to iron.  It'd do great against creatures, but against a regular sword, he'd be in trouble.  But in a supernatural pinch, it'd do.

If you follow the thematic connections between Harry Vs Odin/Merlin, you'd find a few things planted firmly in Harry's future. An offshoot of WK mantle, a broadsword, a hat.

Why a broadsword and not a spear?

Specifically... Harry's just gotten a very, very powerful leaf-shaped blade that would look great attached to the end of his Wizard's staff...

Cause santa had the broadsword and Harry's mental view actually is starting to match Morgan's? Forgot offhand about the spear, lump that in their too for sure.

Harry will never get a Warden Sword, half the reason that Jim had Luccio body-swapped was to prevent Harry getting something that useful. Besides, the man has enough crap to carry around as it is, any more equipment and he'd need to invent a bag of holding

Though if he did get a Warden Sword, the obvious choice would be a Sabre, since we know that Harry's preferred style of swordplay is fencing.

And just think of all the Game of Thrones pop culture references about White Walker ice weapons ...

Especially if he starts using ice armor similar to the stuff he had in Cold Days.

Better to look for reasons behind the woj, any woj. It's like playing clue lol.

Didn't he form dagger-like ice formations in the battle with sharkface in Cold Days? 

A thought I had was if he had his staff tips shod with the same metal that the fey use for swords; but have them augmentible with ice or fire magic.  I'm sure Mab has a creature in her service that could provide something for Sir Harry...

And have Harry go even deeper in her debt?



No seriously though, Harry hates working for Mab as it is, and he isn't PAID for his duties as the Knight.  If he wants help, HE'S the one who has to pay for it.

If he wants a fae metal spear point for his staff, he'd probably end up owing a favour to the fae smith.

At this point, he's probably better off paying the svartalves in diamonds for any smithing he needs done.

Why get a fancy spear or sword when he has a perfectly serviceable club on hand that can fire ice bullets?  Swords are for the Jackson Pollocks of the magic world.  Harry is a gorilla with finger paints.
