Some Magic Weapons; d10 plucked organs

The Rose: a stylish, silvered rapier. The basket hilt has a clip to hold a flower like a corsage. Impeccably balanced, and a wielder counts as having a shield.

Weeping Blade: a dull, sturdy haudegen (or "walloon.") When wielded, the sword exudes water. If held by someone who is sad, the water will be saltwater. The hilt is cunningly slicked and shingled to keep the hand dry.

Emptor: an ornate, sharpened takoba. Whenever you trade a magic weapon for a fair price or better, you may imbue this weapon with a duplicated magical effect of the weapon you just sold. If you ever sell another weapon for more, Emptor gains that weapon’s abilities instead.

Timely Bow: a smooth, handsome flatbow. It fires arrows five seconds into THE FUTURE.

Canopic Savior: a chipped, refurbished khopesh. When its blade is dipped in the blood of the recently deceased and a quick prayer uttered, the soul of the deceased is interred in the khopesh. This is actually somewhat cozy, and the spirit can communicate with the wielder telepathically. Only retains one spirit at a time.

Onerous Stroke: an impossibly heavy dagger. It deals damage as though it were some two-handed sword or greataxe. Its owner wakes up fatigued.

Lerato’s Plucking Iklwa: an aged shortspear. When it rolls maximum damage, it plucks an intact organ out of the target’s body. (roll on the table below.) This does not negatively impact your foe until you specifically damage the organ. Hit location does not matter; this thing will suck out your brain through your side.
  1. Your tendons, in a curling web
  2. Your esophagus and tongue, vibrating in wet agony
  3. Your stomach, spilling half-digested food
  4. Your intestines, spilling digested food
  5. Your liver, punctured of bile
  6. Your lungs, deflated
  7. Your bladder, : (
  8. Your ovaries and/or testes, clacking weakly
  9. Your heart, manically palpitating
  10. Your brain, as a feeling of disorientation rushes past  your temples.


  1. I go my intestines! Yay! Great stuff; nice and gross. I linked people over here this week on my blog.

    1. Thanks friend! It's said that the iklwa is named for the sound it makes when it's pulled out of its victim, so I knew I had to find a way to include it.
