Adventuring Gear[edit]

I have added this to 3.5e Adventuring Gear. Is this the place you would like it to reside? --Green Dragon 16:06, 27 January 2007 (MST)

Name[edit]

This name in kinda ridiculous... The name is hard to say and is too long. Any ideas of a good alternative? --Green Dragon 20:54, 28 January 2007 (MST)

It fits Gnomes though. How about SLAGDRAM Spring Loaded Automated Gnomish Dagger Release Arm Mechanism? Still long and crazy Gnomish, but also can be used as just SLAGDRAM on the title. --Aarnott 11:29, 24 April 2007 (MDT)
I like it and I think that is much better than the current name. Also, when you move the page make sure to mention what the acronym stands for on the page. --Green Dragon 21:34, 24 April 2007 (MDT)

Hyphen Check[edit]

I'll admit that my knowledge of hyphenation rules sucks. I know that you are supposed to hyphenate words that modify the other word. For example Spring-Loaded Weapon is correct because "spring" modifies "loaded" not "weapon". Spring Loaded Weapon is not correct though. So for SLAGDRAM I am confused. Is it Spring-Loaded Automated Gnomish Dagger Release Arm, Spring-Loaded-Automated-Gnomish-Dagger Release Arm, or some other permutation. I'm thinking Gnomish-Dagger and Gnomish Dagger will be both correct but mean different things. --Aarnott 08:20, 25 April 2007 (MDT)

I think Dmilewski has a degree in English. I may be mistaken. --Green Dragon 11:27, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
The sad thing is, I'm working on one :-P. --Aarnott 11:52, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
My opinion: "Spring-Loaded Automatic Gnomish Dagger-Release Arm Mechanism." Hyphens exist to clarify associated words where you have conflicting rules. Over-applying hyphens puts you straight back into the same vague wording that you started out with. The point here is to clarify associated words, and not to replace one vague word string with another vague word string. --Dmilewski 12:55, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
Good to know; I've corrected it. Thanks a lot! --Aarnott 13:07, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
Dmilewski's suggestion (above) is the correct way to clarify the attribution. It is wrong on the page: Gnomish-Dagger is hyphenated rather than Dagger-Release (as Dmilewski suggested and is correct). –EldritchNumen 16:24, 26 April 2007 (MDT)
I assume that my interpretation of the hyphenations was a little wrong and the author corrected that.--Dmilewski 05:06, 3 May 2007 (MDT)

Where are the daggers being hidden?[edit]

Six daggers? That is a lot! Are they all up the sleeve? And, do they sell these at Walmart?--Mander 19:44, 16 December 2007 (MST)

I agree, 6 daggers in a device... I don't know, seems unreal. What would you recommend to make this more realistic? --Green Dragon 21:55, 16 December 2007 (MST)
I can imagine 4 daggers, each hidden on the forarm, top, bottom and sides. Or maybe the Daggers could be smaller. Or maybe they could be throwing darts. I realy like this item, but I would tweek it for my own game.--Mander 21:58, 16 December 2007 (MST)
Feel free to implement your version, which should be more realistic. --Green Dragon 22:12, 16 December 2007 (MST)
But whos work was this anyways? any clue?--Mander 22:45, 16 December 2007 (MST)
It was started by Agentmage2012 then modified by quite a few people. Ownership on this item does not really exist. See the history tab for a detailed rundown. --Green Dragon 23:12, 16 December 2007 (MST)
I would say this: It has 4 daggers that are hiden on the forarm. One dagger on the underside, one on top, and one on each side. Once a dagger is released, the device must be rotated with the off hand to put the next dagger into the ready position. This would make the divece must less powerfull then the one already listed.--Mander 23:45, 16 December 2007 (MST)
Feel free to add that in. --Green Dragon 23:32, 20 December 2007 (MST)

Multiple Items[edit]

Isn't there an item for this already.......Yep...i thought so heres the link to it. Spring Sheath. I don't mean to be rude, but it seems like you just copied it....or did they copy you??? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kisame93 (talkcontribs) 17:38, 30 March 2008 (MST).

Slagdram was first it seeems Jan 07 as opposed to July 07 --Calidore Chase 17:40, 30 March 2008 (MDT)
Hmmmm... should they both be here then...lol??? pretty much two of the same thing. --Ryan B. 18:01, 30 March 2008 (MDT)
The SLAGDRAM holds multiple objects whereas the spring sheath seems to hold one. Sufficiently different enough to warrant keeping both I'd say. --Calidore Chase 18:03, 30 March 2008 (MDT)
well i suppose your right, but i looked up spring weapons and found another that falls between these two...lol, wish people would take the time to see if its already here or not..... --Ryan B. 18:06, 30 March 2008 (MDT)
