How could you make Medieval weapons Sci-fi-ish without being Star Wars-y?
I think a good basis for a sword between those two categories would be a sword that has a thin blade, is somewhat shiny, and has at least a little technology on it (wires, batteries, etc.). That's the best I can think of.
I am open to anymore suggestions!
You could have weapons that retract into the handle, making them smaller and easier to hide, if need be. Say you have a sword, when it's retracted it looks like just a sword hilt - or maybe just the handle itself, but when the blade is extended, it looks like a typical steel sword.
Wow! That's a fantastic idea! Thanks!
What about regular guns, but physically attached to a character? Like an extension that is embedded in them. Say someone can open their chest cavity, and launch rockets, or someone's arm could extend and be a shield. Idk, that's probably really weird
I’ve been having the same problems!!!
I love the ‘battery’ sword lol
I’ve been going for sci-fi look in my story, but love the medieval feel
People could wear bracers that have an installed weapon, like a blaster or laser, maybe even an energy blade.
maybe a sword that heats up hot enough to melt through other metals?
