Bit of a weird project, but if you ever want to include some form of chainsaw in your fantasy games, at least one of these should fit the tone. Maybe that's just me! If you're doing full gonzo, go ahead and roll that wonderful d20.
1. Lotus Petal Saw
Softly shining, pink petals spin along an ornamented bar, conjured by a Blades of the Endless Wheel mantra.
|Exactly this, by me|
2. Thornwheel Blade
A great enchanted rose bush, grown by fairies to have a rotary thorned stem.
3. Jaguar Claw Macuahuitl
Empowered by a jaguar spirit, its many obsidian blades command incredible cutting power even when swung like a normal sword.
A spinning weapon of animated bone, using fangs and teeth along the whirling edge.
So named for cutting meat as well as being meat itself. The blade is comprised of sharp, hardened claws, and it spews its own blood when spinning.
6. Crystal Prismus
Enchanted weapon of stone and gems. Each tooth is a different kind of gem, and they can create a glinting rainbow of slicing power.
7. Brimstone Spinblade
Spewing hellfire when it spins, the heat of its flames can burn through steel as well as any warhammer punches through.
8. Starlight Spinner
An elven weapon of silver, hammered as fine as eggshells, with a radiant blade that captures the light of the stars.
Somehow when spinning, the goopy edge of this blade cuts much faster than the slime can normally corrode.
10. Classical Sparksaw
Ancient spinning blade crafted of olive wood and bronze, spits blue sparks as it spins. Made by a brilliant inventor centuries ago.
|Ancient Bladesaw, from Zelda|
11. Trimerian Sawbeetle
The curious horns of this giant beetle can spin to cut through wood or, presumably other Trimerian creatures. They are dismembered and reconfigured to be useful as tools.
12. Winding Sharp-Frost
Unnaturally hardened frost, spinning and cutting with a fractal edge.
A bladed whip that can be activated to coil in an elongated shape, spinning to cut more effectively, in exchange for shorter reach.
14. Terracotta Blade
A living clay weapon that spins with razor sharp clay shards along a lengthened edge.
15. Runic Stormblade
Constructed by wizards of moderate-quality steel. The runes etched into its surface conjure the rage of storms into a crackling, whirling edge of deep indigo lightning.
16. Gilded Relic Blade
Built of marble set with gold and finely cut gems, this spinning blade contains a warrior-saint's hand bones that they used to wield weapons, and radiates with divine cutting light.
17. Trimerian Wasps
Angry insects that have been specially bred and trained to fly in a long, rounded formation and devour anything they touch. This was the only formation in which they wouldn't turn back and attack whoever holds their hive.
|Lasersaw, by Andrea Sibilla|
18. Jade Dragon's Fang
Gifted by a divine being from an unearthly realm, it is surprisingly easy to carry.
19. Spectre's Wrath
As ghostly mist whirls and spins, the hatred of the dead calls out in a hollow wail.
20. Splitting Organistrum
The powerful tune of this slow instrument projects a small aura of cutting sound near its neck when played properly.
Many of these were inspired with help from Gal Paladin on Discord!
