100 Histories and Legends for Fantasy Weapons

Watermarked PDF

Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 25%! For more values, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

So often, when characters collect the loot and examine the treasure, what they find is extremely bland. Weapons whose only point of interest is the attack bonus they give, or the abilities that they have. Not every weapon found will have a legend, but having some that do can make them more interesting, and perhaps be a source of adventure hooks.

This supplement has legends for one hundred different weapons. Every weapon has been given a name and in some cases the type of weapon is given and it is described as well. Others are vaguer, being simply “a blade” or “a weapon” allowing the legend to be attached to a weapon of a GameMaster’s choice. Proper names can be changed to better fit with a campaign setting if needed. Some of the weapons may be cursed, or are at least reputed to be.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • Phoenix - This weapon will, over the years, start to fall to pieces. Each time this happens, a new weapon is forged using the final fragments from the previous weapon. Each time this is done, the new weapon has exactly the same powers and abilities as the previous incarnation, although, as the new weapon does not need to be of an identical type to the old, these powers will vary depending on the weapon’s type. Every time it is forged anew, an image of a phoenix appears on the weapon somewhere, without having to be added.
  • Qrist - A weapon with a short, wavy blade, this is of a type crafted by the jungle tribes using the forges of the lost cities of a forgotten realm that once ruled the area. This blade is one that belonged to a tribal champion, but was stolen when he was defeated by foreign invaders seeking gold. His tribe will pay well for the weapon’s return, for without the spirits of all the previous wielders who are reputed to inhabit the blade, they are unable to choose a new champion.
  • Queenslayer - This is the weapon that was used to slay the Dragon Queen, a notorious tyrant of legend and user of forbidden magics. It is no longer known if the Dragon Queen was a dragon, or simply a ruler who took that name; most of the material relating to her was deliberately destroyed.
  • Rainbow Blade - The sword has a blade in which rainbows of colours constantly twist and move under the metal’s surface. Even in the dark, the rainbow patterns can still be easily seen, although the blade sheds no light. Legend has it that the Rainbow Blade was found at the foot of a rainbow, and reaching a rainbow’s foot is something most believe to be an impossible feat. So, it may have been a gift from a deity associated with rainbows to a valued follower.
  • Sanguinary - This weapon was found on top of an altar that was on the top of a jungle-cloaked step pyramid. The weapon was found in a pool of fresh blood, still warm as if it had only just been shed. Yet there was nothing alive, or recently dead, anywhere nearby. Where the blood came from is a mystery, and the weapon itself has been suggested as the potential source.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
