Hey guys! First post, just happened to find this forum yesterday and was super excited to join as I'm working on a webcomic of my own.
I'm a bit stumped on several fronts, but one thing in particular I've been working on is a weapon for one of my main characters. He's a large warrior-ish lionman who uses "natural" weaponry (weapons made from animals rather than steel.) and I'm trying to come up with a concept for a transforming weapon for him -something that could shift from a sword to a tower shield to a mace- that can work in both hands. The ideas I've had so far are:
Gauntlets- Caestus that can take the shape of different weapons.
Enchanted "lion king" pauldrons- Ancient lion-sculpted shoulderguards that, on his command, glow at the eyes and release lights down that shape into the weapons on his hands.
Some sort of ring or gem - Ala green lantern-ish.
.. And that's about it. What I'd like is for something biological, like a walnut or some vine-like thing that could shift into his weapons but I've been having a hard time. Any ideas?
