SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Scattershot - Sliverstring can launch up to 5 bolts horizontally at a time (a la EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront 2). This makes it extremely effective at downing large groups of enemies.
  • Scattergun or Grenade Launcher Attachment - A scattergun/flachette launcher or a grenade launcher can be attached to Sliverstring. Many other attachments can be placed on this as well.
  • Integrated Flashlight
  • Semi-Transparent Rounds - The spun Tibanna disruptor rounds create a ghost in the air. It is semi-opaque, and colorless, but can be seen. However, they are harder to track than normal disruptor rounds.
  • Completely Silent - there is no sound made by Sliverstring.
  • Venting System
  • Various Bolt Type - Sliverstring has many bolt types available, and any form of ammunition can be made into a quarrel. Sliverstring is most known for the use of its explosive bolts, however, which lightsabers cannot deflect. When charged, these explosives bolts can devastate entire enemy units.
STRENGTHS

  • Recoil Absorption
  • Automatic Cocking
  • Disruption Bowcaster Design
  • Charging Coil
  • Scattershot or Focused?: Either one. Pick what you need at the flick of a button.
  • Various Bolt Type - Sliverstring has many bolt types available, and any form of ammunition can be made into a quarrel. Sliverstring is most known for the use of its explosive bolts, however, which lightsabers cannot deflect. When charged, these explosive bolts can be particularly devastating.
WEAKNESSES

  • Overheating - Sliverstring can be overheated by charging it. If the entire quarrel is charged, it can result in the weapon needing to be given ‘breathing’ room before it can charge fire again. It is also advised to let it cool off before firing again, as the heat can get to the point that it can begin to seriously damage the hands in contact with it. This can be done by venting it.
  • Temperature control through the vent option is very important to effective use of Sliverstring (Think a Star Wars: Battlefront II type limitation).
  • Limited Ammunition - It has limited ammunition, and a limited amount of quarrels can be carried.
DESCRIPTION
Constructed by hand at the same time as Dresta’s first lightsaber, Sliverstring is a definitive weapon of Dresta’s combat style. Something that can be used to identify Dresta whatever armor she may be wearing, Sliverstring’s ability to change the flow of combat in Dresta’s favor engagements is not unique amongst powerful weaponry in the hands of Sith Lords, but still makes it a bad idea to stand directly in front of Dresta’s way. Built from scratch using various other bowcasters as a template along with Dresta’s own ideas on what a bowcaster should be, make no mistake. This is a Sith bowcaster. It is designed for maximum lethality and maximum carnage, and even at the lowest setting a shot to the chest is more likely to kill than to wound. There is no stun setting on Sliverstring, and only a truly competent user of Sliverstring can capture opponents alive if they’ve used Sliverstring against them.
