Dual Blade Questions

Postby Hector of Ostia » Sat Apr 02, 2005 10:33 pm

I've always wondered if the Dual Blade is a single sword or a pair of swords. In Lufia 1, it's implied that it is a pair of swords because it shows Maxim fighting with two swords. But I'm not sure anymore.

It might be that it can split into one or two swords, depending on the user.

I've always seen it as a sword with two blades stuck together for some reason. Not a double-edge style though. It might also be possible that they can be used as two swords.

I'm confused about that one too. Cause Maxim has two swords in Lufia I, but Devur has one! And when Devur finds it, it's also one sword. Same in the other games. :?

Devur is the Hero. Actually you have to the name the Hero yourself,but a lot people call him Devur.

I say it is a single sword, and I also think the sword in the Estpolis logo is Dual Blade.

Could be, but how do you explain Maxim's sprite in FOD then?

Maybe Maxim loved his previous sword too much, so he fought with that one too.

Maxim: But Selan, aren't you hiding a sword under your dress?

Selan: You know about that, huh? I feel like something's missing without it. But you, too, Maxim. You have your sword, right?

Maxim: Well, this is like a part of me...

But there's another problem:

Look at this...

Maxim's carrying a Zircon Plate as a shield. But how can he be, if he's carrying two swords?

Hmm, same question for Torma and Dekar in Lufia ROL. How does Dekar fight with two swords and a shield, and how does Torma fight with two chains and a shield?

Devur is the name for the hero that has pretty much been "standardized" througout the Lufia community, (thanks to Lufia of lufia.net) but I believe his "official" name is Wedge or something.

I accidentally made the mistake of making the poll with my topic. I was sort of in a rush so I forgot to separate the poll and the topic. Whoops.... :oops:

Just my thoughts...

I think when you consider what Dual Blade is, and that it reacts to the life force and energy of the one that wields it, that it -may- be able to be used as a pair of weapons or a single sword, depending on the need of the wielder, considering the fact that it is a weapon of such fame.

As for the sprite and equipment questions, I think (Since I'm a stickler for realism in roleplay and I love weapons) for Maxim to wield a pair of swords and still have a shield, it would be about the size of a buckler that is simply kept strapped to his wrist, and as for the pair of chains, it may be named as a shield, but bracers, or vambraces could be considered "Shields" as well.
I'm your huckleberry.
