Water Flower Tachi


The Water Flower Tachi came into the library assets as a gift from the Farrani of the Plum Islands. The weapon can call upon the favor of Argenta to manifest four elemental blessings, each once per day. None of the following effects can manifest simultaneously; activating an effect cancels any of the other three whose duration has not yet run out.

Bane of Air (Cr Au 20/28); R: Touch, D: Diameter, T: Individual, Req: Rego. A swirling torrent of air surrounds the blade and its holder, picking up dust and other small, loose objects. This may partially obscure the bearer. Anyone standing near enough to attack the wielder with a hand weapon must make a Size stress roll of 9 + at the beginning of each round or be blown back. Melee and firearms attack rolls against the bearer suffer a – 3 penalty. All other missile or thrown attacks suffer a -9 penalty. (Base 3, + 1 Touch, + 1 Diameter, + 2 unnatural, + 1 Rego effect) (+ 8 for 16 penetration)

Bane of Earth (Mu Te 20/28); R: Personal, D: Diameter, T: Individual; Req: Rego. Sharpens the edge of the weapon to a degree unequaled by manual sharpening methods. This gives the point and the edge a + 3 bonus to Damage. The blade also ignores the first 3 points of protection granted to target by metal armor. (Base 4, + 1 Diameter, + 1 Rego effect, + 2 metal) (+ 8 for 16 penetration)

Bane of Fire (Cr Ig 10/18); R: Personal, D: Diameter, T: Individual. Forms a fire along the length of the blade. This adds + 5 to the weapon’s damage score and it can start fires as well. (Base 5, + 1 Diameter) (+ 8 for 16 penetration)

Bane of Water (Cr Aq 20/18); R: Personal, D: Diameter, T: Individual. Coats the blade with a virulent, glistening poison. Anyone failing to soak a wound inflicted by the blade suffers an additional Medium wound from the poison. (Base 10, + 1 Diameter, + 1 reiterating effect) (+ 8 for 16 penetration)
