Excellent. What do you recommend against Dark Elves though?
this pen looks like there should be a spot where Materia should go to further give power to your ancient bog oak
That does sound very proper and good! Except the ent corpse part, and the creepy AI images.
I wish I still played BlackMUD, then I'd try and get this pen to se if it'd help me against the kobolds there! But alas, the RealWorldFullyImmersiveBetterThanLifeRealityNotASimulator has me stuck, taking up all my time. And since swords are shadowbanned here, at least the wanton usage of them against prospective monsters, a bog oak pen with guilloche (it's fun to say, isn't it!) might be the next best thing. Especially if, as you say, you've encountered no kobolds since you purchased it. Promising, promising indeed!
