Starfire

(DC Implosion) (part #1 - Setting)

This profile is about the sword-and-sciencery (new word !) heroine Starfire, back in 1976. Only a young woman’s sword and her courage will challenge the inhuman hordes who would enslave her people !

Kailane the Culler

(and the Sword Goddess)

A fully fleshed-out sample heroic/dark fantasy character, based on a weird Path of Exile build. A burning intelligent sword that kills her wielders, darting acrobatics based on a magical proximity sense, a feral huntress with a pet canary, these sorts of things.
