“What’s that, dear? Why yes, you do seem a bit thirsty.”
Darryn loves his sword. Perhaps a bit too much. Not only does he talk to it, he holds long, meaningful conversations with it. When asked about this peculiarity, Darryn insists he’s just talking ‘AROUND’ the sword. Not ‘TO’ the sword. (Yes, that’s much less disturbing.) Regardless, Darryn is just about the most enthusiastic warrior around. He’ll wade straight into any fray, preferring unwounded enemies to those on their last legs. And, if his blade really IS talking to him, well, at least it’s not distracting him from his work.
