Aeglhing - "Web-piercer"
Make: Elvish (Sindarin)
1) Sure Shot
2) Bane: Foe Slaying
3) Bane: Biting Dart
This sturdy, reddish longbow is highly polished and intricately carved along its length into a lattice-work of interwoven tendrils and gossamer strands, resembling the intricate patterns of spider webs. The bowstring is still attached and is fashioned of some form of particularly strong silk.
The bow is made from a rare variety of rosewood, indigenous only to Southern Mirkwood.
Anguirel - "Iron of Eternity"
Type: Long sword
Make: Elvish (Beleriand)
Bane: The Enemy
1) Ancient Cunning Make
2) Bane: Raging -> Foe-slaying (I think this may have been a curse effect I was working on but it's a bit fuzzy now.)
3) Runes of Victory
This longsword is forged of a strange black metal. The smooth blade is exceedingly hard and sharp; yet the weapon is far lighter than it would appear given its prodigous size. While holding the sword, its bearer can sense a faint thrumming through the hilt.
Anguirel was forged by Eöl the Dark Elf in Beleriand before the awakening of the Sun and Moon. It was the mate of Anglachel, which was given to Thingol of Doriath (and which was later reforged and renamed Gurthang), was made of the same meteoritic iron, and had the same physical properties.
Anguirel was kept by Eöl until it was stolen by his son, Maeglin. It was lost to history at the Fall of Gondolin when Tuor repaid Maeglin's treachery by throwing him from the walls of the hidden city, fulfilling Eöl's curse.
Type: Axe Head (Longhafted)
Bane: Trolls, Undead
3) Bane: Superior Fell
This bluish-green axe-head is compact and exceedingly sharp, with a pointed spike protruding from the poll. The faces of the axehead are inscribed with ancient runes.
This sword was forged in Westernesse of old during the Second Age. The inscription reads Kathuphazgân or "Conqueror" in Old Adûnaic.
HARSUDJÂN - "Flame of Hope"
Make: Dwarvish (Khazad-dum)
1) Superior Grievous
2) Flame of Hope
This is a barbed spearhead of dwarvish make. The metal is a reddish-orange color
Dulgizor Anadûni "Black Flame of the West"
Type: Sword (Serpent Scimitar)
Make: Númenorean (Adûnaic)
Bane: Serpents / Dragons
1) Cunning Make
2) Superior Keen
3) Bane: Foe-slaying
This exotic curved blade is forged of a gleaming steel, and its serrated arc is covered in ancient black runes and sigils depicting the foul sporting of various wyrms and drakes.
This sword was forged in Westernesse of old around the time of the Great Armament during the Second Age of Arda. The blade was evidently carried to Middle-Earth following the Downfall, and was formerly wielded by one of the Black Númenorean princes of Umbar, presumably being lost in the wars with Gondor prior to 1880 T.A. The runes are in Black Adûnaic and read Dulgizor Anadûni - "Black Flame of the West".
- I knew Anguirel was a stretch, but it tickled me, and they didn't really ever quite get how legendary it was. I almost did it more for my own enjoyment.
- The name "Axe" was based on a running joke about the Woodmen never giving each other their real names.
- I also had a half-finished mithril shirt write-up for the 1st character that retired, so I just never bothered to finish it.
