As you pick up the weapon you feel power and dread. It has history, it has a will. It wants you to kill. It enables you to kill. You're not the same anymore.

Roll 4d20 to make a sword which will enable you to deal some damage, but watch out because nothing is enherintly good. You could end up with:

(table 1) A Falchion  (table 2) which looks rusty and worn. (Table 3) This weapon stinks, repulsively. Swinging it will make enemies vomit. Carrying it into a city is a guaranteed way to get thrown in the cells. (Table 4) But a small boil appears on your hand. A day later on your other hand. Within a week your body is covered. People will notice you. (Table 5) Where to find the sword? A troll took it back to his nearby dungeon and intends to use it as a wedding present.

If you want to go on a quest to locate a fantastic treasure roll and extra d20 and get a rumour as to where the sword might be. 

These swords are made for MÖRK BORG but are made as system neutral as possible, so they should fit right into your b/x, OSE or general OSR-adventure.

I want to thank all the good people who helped make this possible. 

  • JimmyShelter – who is the reason for the JS-initials in table 3, entry 18.
  • Anders Dahl Kramer who helped spell-and-sense-check everything!
  • Thor Noe who also helped readthrough everything.
  • Philipp Teich who did ISBJÖRN which is in table 5, entry 12.
  • And all the good people on various Discords who helped me with this.

At first, its just a fun look, like "is pink. Very pink. SCREAMING pink." Then there's a cool effect on top. Finally, you might realize it's devastating and need to get rid of it in time!
