Inspiration Visit 2

The second visit we went on was to the Royal Amouries. As of yet I have no inclination to whether or not my character will have a weapon, but all in all I found the trip down there very rewarding. I found many weapons which had intricate patterns on the handles which made them hold a kind of beauty, the juxtaposition of the ornate design and the use behind the weapon was quite interesting. It's as if they are trying to bring elegance and class to the object, or possibly to show the wealth of the owner of the weapon.

In a way the designs on the handles/hilts almost make them have a feminine quality. Beautiful but deadly...
