Full Item Description
This sword is unique, made only for the Merchant Prince of (insert city) and his loyal band of mercenaries. The Cruaunte is a hand and a half sword, capable of being used with one or two hands, and from horseback or on foot. Thus, the merchant can save both time and money equipping his men with a universally usefull weapon.

The sword is single edged, for greater strength, and less maintainence time. The sword comes to a blunt point, and is only marginally useful for making thrusting attacks. Its strength comes from the fact that the blade is serrated, or notched in the fashion of a steak knife, or chainsaw blade. While it only incurs moderately more damage (+1 dmg) it leaves nasty wounds that are slower to heal as the flesh is more thoroughly savaged, and it is quite intimidating.

History
The swords are of a uniform average quality, with the officers of the unit recieving blades of higher quality. The Prince himself wields a Cruaunte with gold quillions inset with small garnets and bound with kid leather.

Cool idea. What is kid leather? Why would a serrated edge do more damage than a straight edge? Sure it has a rough surface, but it makes it more difficult to cut with, seemingly you would have to chop with it instead of slice. More like an axe than a sword.

I understand and realize that there are cultures in the world who used edged or serrated blades, but I never expected them to do more damage, only look more imposing.

FYI: Serrated edges do less "damage", but the damage takes longer to heal. The wounds are shallower, but broader, as the flesh is peeled wide. The reason is that when smooth edges "bite" they slide in along the cut, rather than a serrated edge which needs constant pressure down and along the edge to do a big "bite". Thus they become shallower.

The serrated edge wounds are broader and need stiching to put back together to heal. While smoother cuts don't absolutely require this.

It could really be nasty to get cut with a notched blade like this but I wouldn't give it more damage, just make it harder to heal the wound. It's an ok idea, nothing too unique though.

Kid leather is soft or supple leather taken from goats rather than from cattle.

I do like this kind of post. This type of item adds so much to the world. Little details add up.

I like it. It is short and good. It is a 3, but a good 3. You know what I mean ;)

SeaClans: The six seaclans are Dolphin, Gull, Ray, Kraken, Shark, and SeaDragon. These totem animals serve as mascots rather than any deep symbol of the clan. These seafaring organizations are filled with land based saliors and fishermen. They ply the seas and deeper waterways. They function like guilds for ocean sailors

The clans have their own homeland. These people live on large floating rafts- human made islands, as well as vessels of all varieties docked to it. These wetfoots never set foot on land (or only do it for a few hours at most).

Rat Clan: This guild is nominally related to the seaclans. The Rats ply the rivers and marshes of the world, as well as do longshoreman work. The seaclans hold the self proclaimed "rat clan" in contempt and the officials see them as just a Guild of River saliors and longshoremen with a funny name. The Rats hold their title with pride and will take it out on anyone who gives them grief about it.
