Techno-Wizard "Blazing Star" Blade:
While this weapon is most often found in the form of a Rapier, it can also be found in the forms of other long bladed weapons such as a Sabre, Epee, Cutlass, or a Katana. Regardless of the appearance of the weapon's outward appearance, the weapon is highly enchanted and is quite powerful. The weapons are special Techno-Wizardry and are similarly enchanted to the Deathbringer and Battle Fury weapons. The weapons are found on both Rifts Earth and the Three Galaxies and are popular with ship crews in both places. The weapons are often decorated with silver, gold, or precious gems in the hilt of the weapon. The weapons blade is bright, almost chromed, bright silver. Any time the weapon's special powers are activated, the blade glows a blazing white.
- Weight: Rapier: 1.76 lbs (0.8 kg), Others depend on type
Mega Damage: 4D6 (Some high quality katanas inflict 6D6)
M.D.C. of the Sword itself: 120. The sword regenerates damage at the rate of 10 M.D.C. per day. Such damage occurs only when an opponent deliberately tries to destroy the weapon.
- Targeted Reflection: When 15 P.P.E. is channeled into the weapon,
the weapon can be used to parry energy blasts and attacks back at the originator.
The wielder of the weapon makes a parry roll with a +3 in addition to any
other bonuses with the weapon. If a successful parry is made, then if the
roll is 13 or greater the blast is sent back to the attacker. Unless they
expect it, the attacker can only dodge or parry with no bonuses. The wielder
can bounce the attack at a different target but needs a 16 or greater without
bonuses. Only energy blasts, including magical, can be directed back at
the attack but can deflect projectiles harmlessly away. The enchantment
lasts for 6 melees/1.5 minutes
Combat Boosting: When 40 P.P.E. is channeled into the weapon, the weapon greatly boosts the combat speed of the wielder. When this is activated, the weapons damage increases to 6D6 for each hit (8D6 for high quality Katanas). In addition, the character gets double the normal number of attacks with the weapon only (does not count for another weapon if using two weapons with paired weapons). The blade comes in at an unexpected high speed and is -5 to parry. The enchantment lasts for 12 melees/3 minutes
Spells Needed: The spells of Ensorcel, Blinding Flash, Feather Light, Targeted Deflection, Speed Weapon, and Enchant Weapon. Requires 2 to 3 months to create.
Black Market / Market Cost: 12 to 15 million credits.
