Tuesday Magic Item – Sipahi’s Scimitar

28 June, 2011

The mobile reserve waited near to the commander, ready to act when required, horses and weapons at the ready.  The commander watched and then, just as the enemy army bent, he ordered them into action.  Their scimitars flashed in the sun as the charged into combat.

Sipahi’s Scimitar



These swords are well made with watered steel blades and grips usually made of polished brass wrapped with brightly colored cording.

A Sipahi’s Scimitar is a simple +1 scimitar unless used from horseback, then it is a +2 keen scimitar.  The scimitar is never lost and never wounds it wielder if and when he falls, or is dismounted, from a horse.

Aura moderate transmutation; CL 9th
Slot none; Price 9,815; Weight 4 lbs
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bull’s strength, cat’s grace, spider climb; Cost 4,750 + 315 for the scimitar (+380 xp for D&D)

Notes– A another focused weapon for the mounted combatant, perhaps too specialized for a player character but useful for enemy horsemen.
