Sword (cursed) – $100


Looking to sell my sword. The power and temptation are too much to bear anymore. Here’s a little bit about the sword:

42″ blade, Cursed so that it will kill a man every time it is used and will be the cause of three great evils.

* Forged by magic, handle carved from the tree Barnstokkr.
* Cutting strength and durability beyond that of an ordinary weapon.
* Unbreakable by anything but wrongful acts of its wielder.
* Bursts into flame when wielder is challenged or in danger.
* Under the correct circumstances can sever its victim’s head in one blow!
* Frightens unworthy opponents and the elderly.

$100 or best offer. Also willing to trade for other cursed items.

Hmmm. I don’t know if I’ve got anything cursed lying around here, but I have some haunted furniture and a haunted painting you might be interested in.

Wait, I’m trying to understand this sword’s special powers. It’s cursed so that it will kill your opponent? Isn’t that a good thing, assuming that your opponent isn’t Joey from down the street? And apparently it kills your opponent by … bursting into flame. Now, I’m no Medieval specialist, but I was under the impression that swords were supposed to be more on the solid spectrum than the fire spectrum. It seems it is also responsible for the three great evils of Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous, and Titanic 2: Mermaid Saviors. Okay, now we’re talking power.

Although, I think I’d like a sword that would not break when I rip the tags off my mattress with it.

Thanks, Angel!

    ugh. Sorry all I have is gibberish. Perhaps I’m cursed. Even some inflammation–but the creme seems to be working . . .

    Thanks, but I think I’ll pass. If I brought this into the same house with my headboard with bad juju, I might start a chain reaction of supernatural awfulness.

    Kind Sir,

    I hereby demand the return of my sword, as there are many enemies within my country (and without) for which the sword is the only defense.

    Also, Lancelot needs a good beheading for his, ahem, indiscretions with my wife.

    Sincerely,

    King Arthur of Camelot

    I didn’t realize Ikea was making swords now. Do I have to assemble it and does my ability to read cryptic pictogram instructions affect its curse and/or effectiveness?

      I got one of those cursed swords from Ikea once, I tried putting it together and ended up with a trebuchet.

      And I still had a couple of little widgets left over.

    I found the gaping plot hole in your saga, Sparky:

    The sword kills a man every time it is used. You know of its power, which means you must have used it already or seen someone else use it. And yet, it breaks if the wielder commits a wrongful act. Such as… killing another person. So tell me, how does this thing still exist?

    I know. I am absolutely no fun at all.

    Sword (cursed) – $100

    So does this mean you swear at the sword when you use the sword?
    Do you swear at your enemy when you use the sword?
    Do you swear at the sword when it bursts into flame?
    Do you swear at the sword when it breaks?

    Cursed so that it will kill a man every time it is used and will be the cause of three great evils.

    Does this mean if it is used against a woman, somewhere in the world a man dies?
    What if I use it to cut down a tree?

    Cutting strength and durability beyond that of an ordinary weapon.

    Even cheese?

    Unbreakable by anything but wrongful acts of its wielder.

    Like selling a cursed sword on CL?

    Bursts into flame when wielder is challenged or in danger.

    Like when you get to a door that says “PULL”?

    Under the correct circumstances can sever its victim’s head in one blow!

    It’ll huff. It’ll puff. It’ll blow your head off.

    Frightens unworthy opponents and the elderly.

    Ha! You’ve never seen Granny wield her walker have you?

      *walks up to door that says “PULL”*
      *push on door*
      *sword bursts into laughter*

    Sparky’s Three Styled Sword

    There once was a sword with a curse.
    A C-note removed from your purse.
    In magic was forged.
    In flame it’s engorged.
    For killing you needn’t rehearse.

    The power, temptation, and three evils great.
    Unbending, unyielding at all dangers’ gate.
    A wielder, unwrongful, swing a fine weapon.
    Opponents, beheaded, leave blood to step in.
    Unworthy, the frightened, you’ll think of your fate.
    Unbroken, Barnstokkr, but don’t show your mate.

    Unbearable now
    Elderly need not apply
    Refrigerator
