The Dawnstorm Blades

A pair of shortswords resembling wedges of rippled, razor sharp rosy crystal or glass. The blades are mounted in plain hilts wrapped with white and gold leather and have no quillions or hand guards to speak of.

The blades may be wielded simultaneously without penalty. When making an attack, the decision may be made to use one of the blades’ dawnstrikes: double the damage, which becomes thunder damage. This may be performed three times a day and the enchantment renews at dawn each day.

If the Dawnstorm Blades are turned against the rightful ruler of a place, they will inflict a dawnstrike on their bearer instead. Swearing an oath of loyalty gains their bearer a second pool of dawnstrikes, usable only in the service of the one to whom the oath has been sworn.

A lone blade may be wielded; but the pair cannot be divided between multiple owners unless split between a liege lord and their loyal one.
