Tree-of-Blades

By:

The Tree-of-Blades (along with the infamous dragonsword, with which we are not concerned here) is the signature weapon and symbol of the Dragonfighters of Mount Taris. It is also known as the Dragonfighter axe, or as the txarian (this name, pronounced “char-EE-ahn”, comes from Txarian Tapolosthes, the feared Chilliarch of the Dragonfighters, who led the his people in a series of short but vicious wars against the Mysians).

Full Item Description
The Tree-of-Blades is best described as a warclub. It is a length of wood, generally 3.5-4.5 feet long (though sometimes as long as 6 feet, in extreme cases; Dragonfighters are known for their enormous stature), with generally a foot or foot and a half of leather-wrapped handle, and heeled at the pommel with metal. Along the length of the club, at regular intervals, there are viciously-curved, leaf-shaped blades, off-setting each other, giving the appearance of the sharpened leaves of a tree (giving the weapon it’s most frequent name); the club is topped with a trio of blades in the form of the crown of a tree. Much of a Tree-of-Blades’ length is usually bound in bronze, and it is a symbol of pride among Dragonfighters to keep the blades of one’s club as sharp and bright as possible.

History
This fearsome weapon is rarely seen beyond the bounds of Dragonfighter territory in these times; since the final defeat of Txarian’s forces by the Mysians at the battle of Mount Phraion, the Tarisians have been seldom seen by any Agera, in fact.

Magic/Cursed Properties
None.

Nasty, ruthless weapon. Don't swing it onto your shoulder to hold it, that is for sure. How would you store that?

Very carefully, I think.

I think I voted upon this a while ago. But it at least deserves one. This and the entire codex it is part of.

A good example of what some books call a holy-water sprinkler, others a morning star(!) and others just a spiked club.

I like your name and description better.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
