A Weeping Blade

From BatWiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Skaven weaponry is often wicked, and this sword is no exception. Darker than the deepest night, it is gruesome to behold. The hilt is covered with black leather straps, the finger guard is dark stained steel and the blade itself is pitch black. The grim edge of the blade is somehow coated, dripping with acidic substance able to burn through most materials. Wielding and controlling the blade's morbid thirst of consuming takes skill and willpower.
It contains a tale;
The weeping blades are wicked weapons favored by the skaven assassin clans. This particular sword is not unusually exquisite for such a blade. It is actually a perfect example of a common weeping blade. It is one of the many the assassin adept possessed. This one was special to him however, as he acquired it from his predecessor: the previous adept he slayed in his gutter runner finals. With skill and ruthless cunning he was able to alter the rules of the centuries old assassin ritual. The Nightlord was pleased to see such calculating and manipulative wit, and permitted the young assassin to live. In no time, he rose to the position of the Adept and started training new killing machines for Clan Eshin. He kept this sword as a fond memorabilia of his early triumph.
