The Retainer's Sword


The Ducal Retainers of Urania who patrol the ever moving Twilight Zone, carry special swords that only they may legally carry.

The Ducal Retainers of Urania who patrol the ever moving Twilight Zone, carry special swords that only they may legally carry.

The hilts are of glowstone and there are glowstones set in the guard, along with a number and name of the Retainer who was issued with it. The glowstones act as a limited light sworce and provide warmth. Not a lot of warmth, just enough to prevent the hand that holds it from getting numb with cold, should the Retainer enter the Darkside for any reason. The iron blades are a foot long. Should an outsider be found with one of these swords, he or she will at the very least be taken in for questioning as to how it came into his or her possession. At worst the outsider could be slain on the spot.

That's a nice idea. No idea who the ducal retainers are, but the swords are cool! I love the attention to detail, especially the hand warmers, and you covered all the possibilities of someone stealing it. A little short, and I would have liked a little history or story, but overall a good solid and realistic item!

I could of sworn I voted on this before. Here we go to correct that oversite. This weapon was attached to a setting/ world Cheka was creating which had an extremely odd rotation (thus darkness and winter came quickly), thus the glow stones.

A good start - I'd like to see a lot more though.

Swordbiters are parasites. They are long, thin and silver, and digest metal, somewhat like rust monsters, but smaller and more insidious. They resemble stick insects, but when they cling to metal they are very well camouflaged, and one can be biting your sword for a week before you notice it. They cannot be removed by hand, as they are very strong, but if the blade is inserted into fire they will leap off to escape the flames. Sometimes, old treasure hoards are infested with them, and the first glimpse you get of the "glittering" weapons is a pile of rusted swords encrusted with these thin silvery insects.
