Yey, I LOVE these!
@joe_galindez Gruff and scratchy. It's a story about who has the most gruff and scratchy persona. That's just the theme, but there's gonna be medieval swordsmanship, maybe magic and tears. It has a surprisingly emphatic main character.
@IdiotWithPencil Your story looks like a blacksmith story. The smith was trying to decide between a light saber and a sword, so he went twin pole sword and now this is the legendary sword for some reason. No, but if I'm serious, there's probably magic, since there's a strange symbol, and I'm also suspecting far-eastern(chinese or korean) influences based on the style of the hilt. Martial arts story?
PS: It's a very nice banner.
