Silver Shortsword

The silver blade of this broad-bladed shortsword tapers to a sharp point. The hilt is oak wrapped in sharkskin bound together in a wire wrapped in a helix.


Game Mechanics:

This weapon overcomes Damage Reduction as a silver weapon.

Because it is made of pure silver, there is risk of damaging the weapon if it is used against an opponent wearing metal armor (ringmail or better), or a creature with natural armor or hide that is equally tough.



Story:

This silver shortsword was found among the stored treasures of the halfling kidnapper Branko Gobbet. The vicious little creature hid this weapon among his prized collection of wealth, a hoard of silver coins. Branko is unlikely to have used the weapon, though, as he preferred to manipulate others into performing all but his worst crimes for him.
