Back in the days of 3.5, I bemoaned the fact that intelligent weapons were near non-existent. To date, I have never been in a player in a game with a weapon that could talk back to you in any edition of D&D or Pathfinder. I’ve seen it in games I’ve GMed, but even still that is a rare thing in modern gaming. So one of my first releases in Pathfinder when I started Jon Brazer Enterprises was Book of the Faithful: The Worshiping Swords. These weapons were designed to be champions of various deities encased in weapons after they died. One of my favorites is the weeping sword of mercy and justice. I would like to share it with you.
Weeping Sword of Mercy and Justice
While the paladin, Lanik, lay dying at the wizened old age of seventy, he called out to his god, asking to serve him longer. He wept for all the evil that still remained in the world that he was not able to right. An angel came to the aged paladin’s bedside and offered one way for the faithful follower to continue to serve. Without hesitating, he accepted and the angel wisked him away. Less than a week later, Lanik’s consciousness was apart of a sword.
Throughout the centuries, this sword has been passed from paladin to paladin for those worthy of the blade. The sword offers tactical advice to its wielder. It also protects the wielder and the wielder’s allies from harm. Yet the one thing that all wielders reported throughout the sword’s long history is that the sword sounds like it weeps when it speaks. When asked about it, the sword tells that it weeps for the evil that still resides in the world. This is how the sword became known as the Weeping Sword of Mercy and Justice. The only time that it sounds like to not be weeping is when it is thwarting criminal activity and bringing the criminals to justice. When doing so, the sword glows faint blue and it becomes a holy weapon.
