I recently posted a forum, And some of you guys wanted me to post them. so here's one!
Also, since the sword is symmetrical I will only be making half of it, so make 2 of everything except the handle.

Step 1: The Handle

Can it be made without so many bendy pieces?

Hellchild (author)danroy992012-01-20

I bet it could.

cholden (author)2011-04-21

cant anyone make a energy sword split in two seprate bladesand nothng in the middle exept the handle

Hellchild (author)cholden2011-04-24

You can always try making one that's spit too. It's not up to everyone but you.

Hellchild (author)cholden2011-04-22

Probably, but if you do that all it can do is sit there becase it would only be connected by the handle and that's quite weak.
So if you wanted to swing it around and such you would have to connect it somewhere in the middle.

Now make a real one +1

Hellchild (author)Doctor Who2008-05-29

lol, that'll be hard

bighead5454 (author)Hellchild2009-07-04

not really in the halo 2 game book it practically tells ya how it works just find some plasma make it magnitised (by microcutting magnets and mixin them with the plasma) then put it into a handle wtih magnets on the handle so that after the plasma is released and heated the magnets make it look like a real one (i did my research and plasma is a real thing rare but real)

bounty1012 (author)bighead54542009-07-04

obviously it is, its one of the four states of matter.

bighead5454 (author)bounty10122009-07-12

yup but it is rare so it is not mentioned to like 1 to 5th graders also the northern lights are plasma

bounty1012 (author)bighead54542009-07-13

actually, I didnt know plasma was a state of matter till 7th grade.

bighead5454 (author)bounty10122009-07-27

haha i learned in 6th

grotle1231 (author)bighead54542010-02-25

i learned it in 4th boo-yah!!!

It isn't all that rare... Every heard of lightning? Or Silly Putty?

lightning is when clouds rub together and for the sillyputty plasma is a GAS not a solid or liquid

Plasma takes the shape of its container, but does not pour. Thusly, Silly Putty is a plasma.

extra fuel srry not ectra ful

An Villain (author)bighead54542009-07-28

plasma is an ionized gas.

bighead5454 (author)An Villain2009-07-29

you must be takin bout the plasma in TVs i am talking bout the all natural plasma like in space 'air' i guess you could call it or the northern lights

An Villain (author)bighead54542009-07-29

no, true plasma is an ionized gas, the northern lights are caused by extra ions in light released by sunspots "exciting" air molecules and making them perform as seen in the northern lights or aurora borealis.

bighead5454 (author)An Villain2009-07-29

i thought u were saying that we mankind made plasma

An Villain (author)bighead54542009-07-29

you can make an unharnessable plasma (useless except for watching) by cutting a grape in half and touching the pieces together so they stand like this UU then microwave (it has to go in a circle not be set somewhere it will not move) it will produce a plume of bluish-yellow energy that looks like flame, this is plasma. it is not usable and is only useful for burning the inside of your microwave and making people scared (peeled carrots can be substituted for grapes, along with other such things.)

Coooooooooooool I think I'll go try that.

you should.

I am right now.


The grape melted.

you must have done it wrong, did you follow my instructions exactly, and was it a green grape?

No it was a purple one. And it did make Plasma.

green seedless make the most plasma and don' t melt, they just sear.

Oh, okay. I have some green ones, too.

good, use green.

Hellchild (author)bighead54542009-07-12

ohh... I get it now.

knexjay (author)Hellchild2009-09-19

u subscribed 2 urslef...sad

Hellchild (author)knexjay2009-09-21

whats your point? yeah. i subscribed to myself. it doesnt make me a bad person, or anything. i just subscribed myeslf, so what?

knexjay (author)Hellchild2009-09-19

grotle1231 (author)2010-02-24

this rocks!!!

AJBrawlLvr (author)2009-09-28

OMG i built and its great!!! I used in in a Nerf war, and broke my friends nerf sword with it LOL

Hellchild (author)AJBrawlLvr2009-09-28

haha thanks, nice. i didnt really think it was that sturdy, but i guess i was wrong.

cstrike pwner (author)2008-07-11

How big is it?

Hellchild (author)cstrike pwner2008-07-11

replica size, 3 feet long

cstrike pwner (author)Hellchild2008-07-23

Crap, well i thought no one read instruction manuals.

Hellchild (author)cstrike pwner2008-07-24


cstrike pwner (author)Hellchild2008-09-23

I don't remember how long ago i said that. But it says in the manual how big it is.

Hellchild (author)cstrike pwner2008-09-23

oh, haha I like looking at the weapons in the game manuals. sometimes I get bored, you know?

bighead5454 (author)Hellchild2009-07-29

i look in the manuals at the covenant weapons to (i know this soounds crazy) think about how to really make them (told ya it was crazy)

Hellchild (author)bighead54542009-07-29

that wasnt crazy...

bighead5454 (author)Hellchild2009-07-31

it isnt? oh well i remember bout 3 months ago i fought with someone cause he thought it was impossible to harness plasma into weapoons but he did catch me with one question... what about the heat?

Hellchild (author)bighead54542009-08-03

wait, what about it?

bighead5454 (author)Hellchild2009-08-04

it would melt your skin easily unless you were wearing a extremely high heat proof glove like a firemans suit glove but those are expensive
