Artifacts of Godville
|Diamond in the rough|
Diamond. In the rough...|
A 'rough diamond' or a 'diamond in the rough' is someone or something that has hidden exceptional characteristics and future potential, but currently lacks the final touches that would make them or it truly stands out from the crowd.
- For you average Hero, this would mean a suit of armour with less than five major holes in it, or a weapon that resembled something a bit more powerful than soap-on-a-rope.
- In terms of your typical Hero, this would also mean a character that is capable of killing a monster rather than slicing off his own leg!
- In regards to most of the Godville pantheon, this would mean a God who occasionally listens to his Hero, rather than just frying them to a crisp with lightning bolts "because I can, puny mortal!".
