In the interest of full disclosure, this took longer than 3 minutes to write. The complete ideas and backstory as well as most of the effect were thought up in less than 60 seconds though. It's Also my first post in over three years! Woot! Go me!
Well, it seems that those who cannot create are forced to re-create...
I just found the Anodyne sword while browsing the Citadel. I had completely forgotten about them. My subconscious, it seems, had not, even down to the snake motif. Or is it that perhaps the snake brings images of silent, painless death?
We'll never know...

Anodyne sword added as suggestion.
From the description of the blade, I was fully expecting this to be an evil thing. Yet it is one of the noblest weapons I have ever read about. I'm glad that you took the extra time to write this up, as the lore section was a very enjoyable read. This item could also inspire the right player to do some great roleplaying, and that's always a plus. 4 for the original idea + 0.5 for the excellent lore.
Kassy: this sub is WORK IN PROGRESS. I was just jotting down ideas rather than writing a sub. I'd like to find someone to collaborate with to flesh out the relationship between the 30 members of the reigning house of Selador. It also needs reformatting for the new site. Would you care to help?
