Umm…if its near the top of the forum, then obviously it is still relevant and people do want to talk about. It was certainly ‘relevant’ enough to make you want to post a reply on it, and your first in 12 months at that. Furthermore, with 289 posts and 45 ‘likes’, I would say that its relevance is beyond a doubt.
My thread doesnt close. Aside from the recent close, which I was informed was automated and also unintended.
This thread is my love, my pride and passion here on the forum, and it represents 2.5 years worth of researching in my spare time and lobbying for change. It represents to me a topic which ALL members should be allowed to have a say and a group discussion on, not just those who happened to be using the forum on that week. Moreover, I actively try to update the thread constantly with more lore referenced Crom facts whenever I happen upon them. However, Crom facts can be very difficult to happen upon. Furthermore, its hard to do so as regularly as I would like, as my work is very demanding and a I also have family. In addition, I treat it as a petition; if a person would indeed like to see Crom recieve some additional artifacts or goodies, then I encourage them to ‘sign it’, by liking the Original Post. Both of which I explained quite clearly in the OP here:
Now with all of this said after we could have been discussing your ideas instead, I actually really liked both of your ideas! No I mean it.
Starbuck1771 I love that you happen to share my sentiments on a Crom Forge and some iconic weapon and armor items! Hypothetically speaking, if we had Conan’s fathers iconic sword from the film, which I am led to believe is called The Draconian, it could be regarded as a Crom weapon. The sword was forged as a tribute to the great god himself, with the runes etched on the blade translated as meaning: “Suffer no shame ye who wield this in the name of Crom”.
And Carnaxus, yes…my logic exactly, and on several points too! I agree with your underpinning logic on a statue of mighty Crom. And even better again, there is lore to support it. A statue of Crom seated on his throne can be found in a cave on the eastern side of Mount Crom, which attracts his faithful (Conan the Valorous). A replica of this statue would be great. And that same logic we agree upon for a sword is exactly what lead to the creation of the Sword of Crom, and later Crom’s Hammer. If we were to go for another sword then a one-handed option may be the best bet for the sake of variety. Alternatively, I feel that a two-handed Greataxe would make for a fitting tribute. And yes, I would indeed be prepared to devote the time needed to crafting an “evilly tedious” weapon. Anything for Crom!!
