As I am new here I do not know if this type of challenge ever takes place.
But what if we had a "make weapons for people's maps" challenge.
1) Design up to 4 weapons that could be used as visual elements in dungeon based maps such as: Swords, shields, axes, and helms.Because sometimes the best part of D&D is getting a new weapon.
2) Name them
3) Give them back stories
4) Explain their supernatural powers.
And wouldn't it be better to see what the Sword of Eternal Pain looks like instead of just knowing its name?
What do you think?
