Scorpion Daggers

By:

A simple knife, designed to hold its poison far longer than a blade with poison simply smeared over it.

Full Item Description

The majority of Scorpion Daggers are simple, thick bladed knives, with small perforations barely visible slightly up from the edge. A small handful have been made for more well-to-do clientele, and are fancier.

The blade itself has been drilled to allow passage of fluid from a chamber within the hollowed handle, controlled by a screw twisted by fore-finger and thumb. 

History

Comissioned first by the Desert Rangers of Pelenor, who sought a sidearm with effect against the strange beasts of the deserts, the Scorpion dagger has spread slowly through the lands, mostly in the hands of those described as ‘undesirables’.

A variety of poisons, potions, and other unpleasant concoctions may be contained in any given knife, and when found on any who do not bear the authority of the government in one form or another, suspicion of roguedom or assassins always springs to mind.

Excellent non magical weapons. It has some backstory and origin. It is an effective piece.

       By: Michael Jotne Slayer

The nations of the Kolm surpasses all other barbarians in their wilderness of life. Thoug they do just bear the likeness of men, of a very ugly pattern, they are so little advanced in civilization that they make no use of fire, nor any kind of relish, in the preparation of their food, but feed upon the roots which they find in the fields, and the half-raw flesh of any sort of animal. I say half-raw, because they give it a kind of cooking by placing it between their own thighs and the back of their horses. They fight in no regular order of battle but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and hen rapidly come toghether in loose array. They spread havoc over the vast plains and flying over the ramparts, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach. They are the most terrible warriors for when in close combat with swords and flails they fight without regard to their own safety, and while their enemy is intent upon parrying the thrust of the swords, they will entangle him with their chains so that he loses all power of walking or riding.

Excerpt from "The peoples of the world" By Taklamarian court-scholar Guliman Amon.
