Weekend Wonders - Knife of the Warden of the Lower Realms (SWCL / OSR)

The Knife of the Warden of the Lower Realms was created for and issued to Meagenbrand, Ranger and Warden of the Lower Realms, an area away from the larger kingdoms and empires of the world. The knife if a + 1 Knife that allows its bearer a 3 in 6 chance of tracking in the outdoors. In the hands of a Ranger, its true power shines through. The knife's enchantment becomes + 3 and inflicts double damage on goblinoids. In addition, the rangers tracking only fails if 2 "6s" are rolled on 2d6.

Meagenbrand fell to a warband of orcs and his knife was never recovered.

  1. Not to be a supercilious dingus, but I'm assuming knife = dagger, correct?

    1. Same, but knife sounded so much better ;)

    2. Knife does sound so much better, but last night, after four beers at my uncle's birthday party, I was all, "He might mean a 1d3 damage knife like Gygax introduced in Unearthed Arcana, not a dagger!"

      Don't ask me. Not that you'd have to, as I just explained: it was the beer.

  2. I would love to find the the Knife of Warden. It would be my best twitter tool Of course Meaganbrand's knife was lost to orcs and not to a more benign creature.
