I like naming magic weapons and giving them a little background. It makes them a lot more interesting than "sword +1" and I think this makes for a more fun game. So without further adieu, a list of swords with random numbers for your convenience.
#1 Cleave Heart -- Broadsword +3
#2 Heart Harrow -- Cursed Arming Sword, a +3 weapons also but causes suicidal depression and rage in the bearer. It can dropped willingly if the bearer does not have significant personal grief. Otherwise you need a remove curse
#3 Flame Heart -- A great weapon.
#4 Fortunes Friend -- Luck Blade, finds treasure as defined by bearer at will.
#5 Stirge -- Vampiric Rapier +2 drains 2HP granting 1 to user per blow.
#6 Dead Cutter +1 Sword ignores all special defense of undead.
The next 4 are Shone made great weapons
#7 Tal Ayelo -- The Northwind Blade -- A Great Weapon aligned with treachery. Grants +1 per 4 levels to the user that may also be applied to tasks involving treachery. Wounds caused by this weapon and not healed by magic will ache with cold for the rest of the persons life.
#8 Fas Ayelo -- The Southwind Blade -- A Shone Made flame tongue sword aligned with honor. Any task of honor associated with this weapon gets a +1 per bonus per 4 of the users levels.
#9 Vas Ayelo -- The Westwind blade also known as the Death Dealer. This weapon gains +1 per 4 users levels, does double damage to living things. Persons slain by this weapon cannot be raised in the same body . Also the bodies of those slain cannot be animated.
#10 Hahl Ayelo -- The Eastwind blade also known as the the Sunrise Sword. Gives off soft light equal to daylight (including its effects on undead) in a 20' radius. Its grants +1 per 4 levels to any task involving saving lives and this bonus does apply to AC!. Used in combat otherwise its a +1 weapons.
A note on my Spider Cult of Mirkwood Campaign posts - As you may have noticed, I’ve posted a lot about this campaign over the past day or so. The reason: my *Adventures in Middle-earth* campaign is starting up...
