    High Musician Vilana invites bards to try their luck in a raffle for a sonic alteration! For the winner, she will customize the sonic item of the bard's choice: a Sonic Shield, Sonic Weapon, Sonic Armor, or Singing Sword. Tickets will be 25,000 silvers, and the winner must pay 75,000 additional silvers. Wins are not transferable and must be redeemed at the time of the raffle (so you must be present at the drawing). You don't have to be able to sing the song to receive the alteration; it will be ready when you are! (However, you must be able to enter the guild to enter the raffle.)
    Japhrimel takes his black branding iron and jabs the superheated metal into your open wound. You let out a scream as the hot iron sizzles against your flesh, which begins to smoke and burn. The sensation sets your nerves aflame with blinding white agony, but somehow you manage to retain consciousness through the excruciating procedure. At last, the wound is blackened and sealed, but the pain is slow to recede.

    ...unfortunately, your heart gives out a moment later.

    found an old txt doc with sonic alterations that might help give people ideas:

    [Private]-Tendou: "You glance down to see a resplendent polychromatic sarissa in your right hand and nothing in your left hand."
    [Private]-Tendou: "Delicate flows of air twist and swirl through the length of the elegantly shaped sarissa. Dazzling prismatic facets of light flash along the shaft as the flows of air within challenge the limits of their magical confinement. The exquisitely formed curves and diamond-like sheen of the sarissa's head end in a viciously sharp point that betrays its deadly purpose."
    [Private]-Tendou: "You tap some intensely vivid translucent golden chainmail bound with cascading streams of mana that you are wearing."
    [Private]-Vender: "the short is some misty white chain"
    [Private]-Vender: "Bright, white light curls around in a steady stream, the constantly moving mist-like tendrils nearly solid in their mass, which makes up the light, airy form of augumented chain armor. Thin veins of silver frame the very edges of the armor's form. Slicing and swarming through the white light, smaller dragonfly-shaped swirls of cobalt air meander through the armor, flitting from one area to another in tiny, swarms. Shifting slighly, the armor wavers upward over the bearer's wings to smoothly coat them."



    an opalescent silver ethereal barrier ~
    Shimmering tendrils of rainbow-flecked air swirl throughout, creating a translucent chrysalis. Tiny points of light waver about in a light mist that surrounds the armor, giving it a silvery glow.

    a luminous silver ethereal warlance ~
    Shimmering tendrils of controlled air twine about each other to create the long shaft of the translucent warlance. Tiny points of light dance in a revolving pattern at one end, highlighting the barbed yet nearly invisible tip. A light mist surrounds the weapon entirely, and reflection lends it the faintest hint of a silvery glow.

    indistinct aegis wrapped with tendrils of shadow

    a wavering suit of black-plated chain mail enshrouded with trailing streamers of hazy shadow

    some mercurially shifting armor shrouded in a swirling ashen mist/a mercurially shifting pavis shrouded in a swirling ashen mist

    a sinuous shroud of dark ethereal mist that drifts about eerily on unseen winds

    a roiling black fog waraxe - Trapped in the form of a long-hafted axe, this weapon is brought to life through the deep thrumming vibrations of a clear basso. Inky blackness churns and coils within the sharply curved blade where tiny silver motes of light twinkle with the brilliance of a hundred stars. In contrast to the undulating chaos of the blade, the dark shaft is nearly solid, with only the faintest trace of lingering vibrations.

    a shadowy silver-starred barrier - Currents of air have been bound into the form of a barrier, tinted with rippling, misty shadows. Suspended in the silently churning zephyrs, starry motes of silver flicker to the surface, only to fade and blossom again from the depths. Nebular fingers wind their way through the smoky translucence, reminiscent of night creeping over a twilight sky.

    a whirlwind of insubstantial leaves - Hazy scraps of foliage formed of naught but air and mana dance to a whispering wind-like tune, spiraling wildly about each other. In an unnatural melding of the seasons, leaves ranging in hue from the pale celadon of spring's first greening to the faint gold of autumn's end mix together freely alongside a handful that shine with the ghostly blue light of the glowbark tree. While each individual leaf is translucent as morning mist, the many overlapping layers render the whirlwind nearly opaque.

    an ethereal black longsword - The longsword's slender blade is woven from dark, ethereal strands of essence lent solid form. Crimson musical notes flow up and down the length of the blade, shimmering as they move.
    Japhrimel takes his black branding iron and jabs the superheated metal into your open wound. You let out a scream as the hot iron sizzles against your flesh, which begins to smoke and burn. The sensation sets your nerves aflame with blinding white agony, but somehow you manage to retain consciousness through the excruciating procedure.

    My current (lance is): a slender ethereal pike tipped with a writhing barbed spike.

    When I go TWC, in order to facilitate using my pure black ora short sword mainhand, I'll be switching it to a main gauche to do the swashbuckler style of combat I've always wanted to do on my bard. Current design I have is the following (to match somewhat with the pure black ora gladius):

    a seething void-black swordbreaker

    This long, slender parrying dagger is formed from a tenebrous void. The main blade stretches the length of a forearm, trailing off to a point so fine that it leaves a wisp of emptiness in its wake. Reaching up on either side of the blade are two shorter prongs that curve slightly inward like hellish fangs, seething and snapping slightly as if seeking some earthly steel to break upon their eerie strength.

    a shimmering rose-entwined warlance

    A whirlwind of air and mana dances about, carrying thousands tiny ethereal rose petals and emerald-hued leaves. As the air swirls and dances about, the visage of an ornate rose appears. It shimmers momentarily, the petals and leaves separating into tiny spirals that pirouette about the weapon. In measured time they take on a subtle luminescent quality of variegated shades of pink and green, each blinking in and out of your field of vision quite effortlessly.

    SO excited to have won the raffle last night for an alteration!

    It's my singing sword:

    A twirling silver-edged tachi

    Twisting wisps dance in wild abandon, coalescing into a precision-formed vortex of energy. Whorls of raw sonics twirl too fast to be seen clearly and move with staccato bursts of extra power from time to time. A particularly bright swirl traces out in beautiful, flowing script "Tallifa," giving a brief hint of substance to the sweeping crescendo of thin air before it fades out.

    Congratulations Luxelle!

    You arrange yourself on the throne.

    You attend to your gold wirework circlet, carefully smoothing the hair underneath, and adopt a regal air as you survey the area.

    You think to yourself, "I got this"
