Tuesday Magic Item – Sipahi’s Scimitar28 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.
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.
