Here's my entry to the Mark's GC2 and a link to the story;
On the off chance you haven't read the story the basic premise is that the Sword and it's alleged power were a trick to hid the true weapon; a glove imbued with the power to manipulate the air. The Swords owner would always wear a beige glove with the initials RK embroidered on it at all time, but would never use it's power without holding a sword to hide it's true potential. This would enable the user to strike harder with a sword and more recently, grant the Lenfel navy mysterious and unrivaled speed. When the sword was stolen it seemed powerless in the hands of thieves and the thieves were quickly apprehended believing the sword had failed them for not being the true owner.
Here is part one of my MOC's showing Amaranthine torturing information out of two thieves in a secret room beneath the The Last Illusion Inn on the Magic Isle. In case any asks the red tiles on the side of the rack aren't glued their sucked on . I discovered some time ago that a bit of water in the back of 1x1 square tiles can cause a suction effect on vertical surfaces.
