The Blade Born of the Executed King

The blade of this battle-scythe was not forged as a weapon of war in its first incarnation; originally fashioned as the blade of a guillotine, its steel attained mystical properties when it was used to execute a particularly tyrannous king of ancient Krevborna. The blood of royalty, even those corrupt and cruel, possesses divine power--power that was transferred to the guillotine's blade as the king's sacred lifeblood forever stained it. Centuries later the guillotine's blade was discovered by a runesmith who refashioned it into a wicked scythe.

Stats: Greataxe, with the properties of a sword of sharpness.
