Fantasy weapons are often sought after by children, and according to the designers of the Goliathon 83 raygun, it is the responsibility of the parents to come up with the money for such extreme toys.
What made Lord Bindington Synge famous, as the story goes, is the fact that he did not return from his expedition. This fictional naturist and explorer is said to have gone to Venus in order to classify and gather new species, at the beginning of the 20th century.
A rescue team went to the Borgarian Hinterland in the search of Lord Synge’s disappeared group, but the only thing they found was the Goliathon 83 raygun.
Goliathon 83 is classified as an infinity beam projector, which is a really vague term, probably deciphered only by the owner of the gun.
Lord Synge liked to decorate the Goliathon with trophies from his past expeditions. As the effect of the infinity beam is unknown, maybe it is safe to assume that the skull that adorns the barrel of the gun also played a role in scaring the victims.
The custom made gun also features several claws and a pinned reptile, as well as some green liquid spills that resemble venom. Luckily for the future owner of the gun, all these decorations are inoffensive.
Both sides of the gun feature claw marks, fact that forced the rescue team to conclude that the last creature Lord Synge discovered was also the one that caused his untimely death. As his body was not found, his latest discovery may have turned him into a trophy, as well. Thinking that the hunter gets hunted in the end increases the dramatic effect of the story.
Only one unit was available for sale, and that one at a price that some would call unreasonable: $1,250. Still, there are people who would pay such a sum and even more, just for owning a piece that is unique on the planet and maybe in the Universe.
